Question about 1996 Lexus ES 300

1 Answer

The check engin light is on and while going down the road it will drop out of gear. You have to shut the car off the back on to reset it then move on and do it again. We have changed the speed sensor that is mounted on the trani and it continues.

Hi, if the check engine light is on. That means the computer has detected a problem with the fuel delivery system. The most common cause is a bad sensor. Before taking it to a garage, have your husband check to be sure that none of the sensors are unplugged.It's possible that one of the wires came loose or is corroded. Also have him check for soft, broken or unplugged vacuum hoses. If the visible check is OK, a computer scan will have to be performed to find out what the problem is. You can drive it to Auto Zone and they'll check the codes for you.
Good luck.

Why does my car shut down while driving?


There might be a problem with the alternator, specifically the diode trio that is inside the alternator. Have your charging system checked. You can do it yourself if you have a voltmeter. Start car and check voltage across the battery terminals. You should get 14.5 volts or higher.

As I would drive the 2000 ford focus I'm not sure if it was the clutch or the transmission but its like the car would go to a lower gear for a minute and then catch back up. Then I happened to be driving...


I believe it's your clutch. If you can shift gears okay with the engine off, but you cannot shift gears with the engine running, (the gear shifter only grinds when trying to shift into first?) then your clutch has worn out.
To replace a clutch, the transaxle has to be first removed from the car. I'm afraid you will have to have it towed to a shop or garage.

2002 Pt Cruiser engine shuts off suddenly


take it to an auto electrician and have all the ground wires checked out
what you describe is a loose /broken wire that moves after the bump and cuts off a circuit
moving what ever you move is moving something and making the circuit good again

Driveing down the road and the car does not die but motor drops idie so shut the motor off and then set for a min and start back up and runs good for a long time the check engine light comes on


Could be a dirty throttle body. Did you happen to replace the battery or disconnect the battery recently? For the check engine light, take your truck to say Autozone, they can check it for free. Let me know what code pops up, and can help from there.
