Wow sounds bad! sounds like coils/ht's. also pays to do spark plugs at the same time. easy to check by taking spark plugs out and leaving them plugged in, then hold them (with very insulated pliers) to the block. you should see a strong spark jumping the plug. if you dont then do the above, if you do then its much more serious and should seek prof help.

Vt commodore problems My 98 VT wagon has real

run a fault code reader to reset the abs and trac lights as the trac light uses the same sensor as the abs.. IF the pedal is still soft then there is still air in the brake system. You may have to crack the lines at the master cylinder first and bleed there first then start at the longest line and work back to the shortest

Can someone please help me figur out what is wrong with my Envoy? running on 1 or 2 cylinders, irratic idle,light surge, doen't want to stay started, flat on the floor sitting still doesn't go

check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. you will see a small black cap like you find on a tire. unscrew it and you should see a pin in the middle and the valve will look exactly like the valve on a tire where you put air in. take a small nail or key or something and gently push the pin down while the key is in the on postion.BE CAREFUL AS GAS WILL SHOOT OUT OF THE VALVE!! Make sure you listen close if air comes out with the gas.Keep holding pin down til all air is out and only gas is shooting out. this should solve your problem if not try again and if you have more air in fuel line then you have a leak in fuel line

2003 series wagon feels like I am flooring the gas pedal and won't go past 20mph, stalls when I stop, shakes, rumble under the front floor board and keeps going to 5 rpm's without shifting?????

If your transmission is an automatic, it sounds like the torque converter is locked. It could be something as simple as a bad solenoid. You need to get it to a shop and have the computer scanned to see if the solenoids have triggered a trouble code. Also, check your transmission fluid while the engine is hot and running.

hi chris, this is one of the first fuzzy logic auto boxes to be fitted to a european car,followed by vw(zf make them,as do borg warner)
try this, just to make yourself aware of whats happening,without touching the gas,put the car in drive and let it accelerate itself ,right upto top gear,stop, then using 1/3 pedal,do the same,stop, then floor it,you will feel the differances right away,(the car will try to make you drive more smoothly,saving gas).other than checking fluid level,
every 6k,the only fix,if needed, is a rebuild.
but,if you know why it baulks in 2nd,(big drop in revs,between 1st and 2nd),you will feel better.
this is not in any handbooks.

Check oil light will not reset

Try to press the gas pedal 4 times and hold it down on the 4th wait for the light to flash and go out. then start the car with your foot off the accellerator pedal. I hope this helps.
Thank You,

Acceleration is shady ... Gears act funny...

i would start by checking the mass air flow sensor or put a scan tool and checking live data.long trim and short trim fuel. may need a dealerfor that.
