98 Montero sport idle drops at light than goes back up

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

I have a 2010 viking heritage 2 spa. the owners manual says that for the primary pump, there are low, high, and off settings, but mine only goes from low to high. no matter what setting it is in, the pump...

If you have a timer and it is on a maintenance cycle that will keep it on low, A freeze control that will keep it on under about 38 degrees. If the thermostat is controlling the pump it will keep it running also. If it has a cool down mode to let the heater cool that will keep it running. These are some reasons it will stay on and their may be more. I would turn the thermostat down and if it's cold out run a heater under the cabinet and make sure that no timer is controlling the pump. Set it to low and walk away for half an hour if it won't shut down turn it up to high and back down again. One of these low speeds should be off. Good luck.

Compaq presario v5000 won't stay

sounds like overheating , probably due to the cpu or gpu fan/heatsing loosing contact, even a little knock could have caused this

My Compaq Presario CQ50-103NR Notebook PC keeps shutting down. Sometimes right away sometimes after a few minutes. The left side of laptop seems to get hot while the right side stays cool. Can You please...

You most likely have a heat problem, as you have realized. To fix the problem, your heatsink/fan assembly needs cleaned, and then reinstalled with new heat sink compound. Some disassembly is required, so this isn't an easy job. If you go to a reputable shop, and tell them what you want them to do, rather than just tell them your laptop is shutting down, you should get it done for a fair price!

I have a compaq presario x1000 that wont let me get past the logo. It was working fine one day, but then I shut it down. The next morning I booted it up it the computer never went past the Compaq logo.

It is likely that the hard drive is bad or a memory issue. I would start by removing the hard drive and see if it goes past the compaq screen. If it does then you know what is wrong. If not message me and will walk you through the next step

My compaq presario R4000 just stopped working and shut down - no warning - nothing!

bad battery. best way to kill a battery is to always have it charging and never using it or discharging it.

take the battery out and use it just with power cord, see if it shuts down again. or try to use it with JUST the battery if battery is bad the PC will not turn on or stay on
