I put a 2004 Montana motor that has no secondary air flow into my 2002 ponitac Montana that had secondary air flow now check engine light is stuck on how can I fix this


Whose to know what you have done.
You took an engine from a later model car with different electronics and put it in your car and expected no issues apparently. There could be 20 problems going on at once each of which may register a CE light.

You best go to a very competent professional to sort it for you.

I have a 2000 volvo s80 when im idling or stepping on the brake the engine shakes... took it to a mechanic who said it was the rotors so i had them and the brakes repalced but the car is still having the...


Do you have a service light on or check engine.If the car shakes when it is not moving it is not the brakes.I would guess an engine misfire or poor engine preformance if it does it while idling.An 11 year old Volvo is probaly ready for some new plug wires and spark plugs if it has not already been done.Good Luck!

Engine light is on idle is high and low took it to a mechanic replaced idle control motor worked for a day or 2 and started to do the same thing again and they reset the code on the computer


If the engine is surging fast and then slow every few seconds it is most likely the air mass sensor MAF. It is sited on a collar on the air ducting just after the air filter box. Start the engine and leave it it to idle. To confirm the diagnosis there is a simple and free way to check.Start the engine and then disconnect the plug to the MAF. If the engine now begins to idle evenly (it might be faster or slower than usual but no longer surging) this indicates that it is the MAF at fault.

Stalls when idling


no you need to make sure you do not have a bad vaccum line or a bad EGR-valve give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

Engine Dies in Idel


being a certified mechanic has its advantages. there are multiple causes for that problem: lack of air or lack of fuel.
make sure the air filter is mostly clean.
check throttle plate (where air filter tube goes into motor), most likely black with soot and carbon. clean with tooth brush and gas, wipe off with clean rag. repeat ultil CLEAN.
low air flow past plate when closed (idle) will cause stall condition.
dirty throttle body is a common problem with lots of cars. causes engine stall.

dirty fuel filter will also cause this problem.. low fuel pressure at idle.

I also believe that your car is equipped with an idle air control valve. (regulates a bypassed air flow to motor at idle) this valve may be stopped up or non-functional. have local shop take a look, but there are ways to check valve if you consider yourself mechanically inclined

2003 MR2 will not idle


Possible throttle control motor failure. Possible Idle Air Control Valve failure.
Is the "Check Engine" light on? Hard to determine without more info. Sorry.
