I have a 2004 impala. My problem is car will start and run great for about 15 - 20 minutes then if i stop to turn it starts spitting and sputtering and tach starts bouncing all over.

Sounds like your problem is air. Although the erratic tach could be indicative of the throttle positioning sensor being faulty.

Yet before replacing this, I know that if you pull in a shop or open the hood for one too many backyard mechanics, they will eventually have you replacing the mass air flow sensor and the air intake temperature sensor and while they may very possibly be the actual culprit and even need replaced, I have found that 9 times out of 10, the air intake just needs to be cleaned. Look for air filter, trace the big hose back to engine <there it is>.

This is something you can do yourself or even have a small child handle it rather than a shop. I highly suggest doing this yourself at home so you know it has been done.

You'll need a screwdriver (or small socket/wrench - most are screws). and a few baby wipes.

*unfasten your air intake hose at the <Air Intake> on the Motor.

*Simply wipe out the inside of the throttle body as completely as possible and for as far in as you can reach. (I use baby wipes, but they are readily available and work great). Wiping out this intake will remove any sticky varnish or gummed up surfaces, Make sure to pay attention to the edges on both sides of that butterfly gate at the throat of it. (the gate or shutter door usually have a build up of residue which when it gets hot - heats the residue enough to reach melting point and they drip, then when you slow down and stop they are not fluttering and opened wide, but usually they are almost closed. So while waiting at a light for example, the residue between the body and the gate causes them to stick shut.

I also suggest wiping out the inside of the hose before connecting it back to the intake.

Good Luck and Happy Motoring .

New FM502 Dual gate opener pressed remote which starts the second gate opening then the master moves a few inches stops. Hear 3 beeps 2 seconds 3-. .Conections are good to circuit board! What up!

reprogram the opening sequence in the control box
it should that the first gate opens then the second gate opens a few seconds behind it
closing is the reverse
you can program that only one gate opens
you can also program that one gate is a entrance gate where it opens until you stop it , then when you have passed through , press it again and it closes
read the operating instructions and follow the programming procedures closely

Gemini gate motor

Check if it has stops anywhere in the system, usually there are micro switches that are activated by arms, etc that tell it how far to open and close. You may need to adjust them.

Rear tail gate opens then closes again by it self

obviously a problem with the auto mechanism , is there a sensor located , see your owners manual, in a particular area that has to bee kept clear and you may have inadvertantly placed something over the sensor , just guess as something must be telling the tailgate to shut , with the age of vehicle is it still covered under makers warrenty ? i'll look into the sensor thing

Liftgate will not stay open. When you push button it opens fully, but then immediately closes

HilAry when the lift gate goes to the open position does it make a grinding noise when it reaches the fully opened position and then closes, If so the gear driven assembly may have had a tooth broken on one of the gears and has striped out causing the gate to fall back down. If this is not the case meaning there is no grinding noises coming from the gate then you have a ecm module that operates the functions of the gear driven unit telling it when to stop and go down. If this is the problem you might want to take it to the dealership to program the new unit. I hope this helps.

I purchased a new support for the lift gate. It pops in easily but the lift gate won't close now. What am I doing wrong? I can't see any other way to put it in.

Did you remove the safety clip that stops it from collapsing during installation? Some of these need to be installed compressed and if they extend too far out they will lock up. I would remove the support, compress it at least halfway and then put it back in place with the hatch halfway closed if possible. Then lift the gate and see if that helps in the operation. This assumes you are talking about the spring tension Hydraulic lift bar on the hatch and that you can reach the connecting points with the hatch partially closed.

My elite gate won't close. the charge ok led light is not on. checked everything and it's ok. switch limit switch on both sides works fine except when trying to close, it won't run.

If you disengage the motor does the gate slide easily? if not that could be the problem, most gate control boards have a sensor that detects the current drawn by the motor, if the gate hits an obstruction or is jammed the motor draws more current and the sensor stops the gate moving. It could also be a problem with the safety sensor, to check this locate the safety sensor input on the control panel and bridge the 2 contacts if the gate then works the safety sensor is the problem.
