Check engine light

I have a 1998 holden vectra and the check engine light comes on sometimes.
the engine seems to not be idling properly and this is when the light comes on it also stalls.
the car can start up fine and you can drive off and the light isnt on but it comes on later and usually when you slow down at traffic lights.
when you drive off it goes off.
can anyone assist me with what is wrong and what cost to fix it

    when slowing down or starting up the auto transmission seems to be a bit rough and jumpy.
    Should it be much smoother?

Usually just replace the IACV Controller (2nd Hand) bolted to the trottle body on the 2.2's. No need to relearn idle speed, good as new again.

Had the same problem with my wifes JS Vectra.
Passages in the throttle body clog up with gunk and the idle controller can't pass enough air to keep the engine going.
You need to remove the throttle body assy and clean it with some type of carby cleaner.
I did this a couple of years ago and it's been fine since then.

My tower light will not come on and im not getting any power, but the lights are on in the back

Sounds like a power supply to me. Check on the back of the tower next to the power plug. Sometimes there is a red, slide-type circuit breaker. Switch it and see if your comp powers up.

The lights on the back of the tower are probably the network card. It usually lights up when its connected to a network or router, but is not an indication that the computer is running.

If you have a warranty, get the company to fix the problem. (this will be cheaper for you and less headache.) Also, opening the case may void the warranty.

If you dont have a warranty, I suggest taking it to a computer repair place if you're not the DIY type.

If you are the DIY type, research and purchase the correct replacement power supply. (This can be tricky, get help if you are not 100% sure)
If you have the wrong voltages, amperage, or cycles, you can fry everything on your computer!
Unplug all the cords, ground yourself, open the case, remove and replace the power supply, and try again.

I have optiplex gx620 mini pc but it dosent read any cd and dvd but sometimes it does read the cd do i have to change the bios setting for that

Hi Ayesha,

I would suggest you to do a lens cleaning of your DVD-ROM drive , as it seems it reads the disc sometimes and sometimes it does not as a result of possible dirt accumulation on the lens.
There are lens cleaners available in the market which has a disc with a brush on it , which cleans up the lens.

If that does no work , then you need get the replacement if the drive is under warranty or check it with your friend's computer , or get a new one, as DVD - RW drives also come cheap these days , so a repair job proves costly sometimes.

Hope this helps..:) Your feedback will be appreciated.

Overheating spark plugs

Any general overheating problem with plugs and electrical devices might relate to a short circuit. Please check all cables and esp. the plug to ensure no short circuit happens. If it continues and if the problem is not identifiable, take it to a technician, using it might result in component damage. Get it fixed as early as possible

Spark plugs on a vectra

If it the 16v engine, remove the top engine cover. In the centre of the engine there is a long black coil pack, with a plug on the right hand side. Remove plug and the couple of bolts holding it onto the engine. Spark plugs are underneath.

2004 Chevy Silverado Z71, service 4X4 light comes on......

I've had this problem twice with my 2004 1500 Silverado Z71, approximately 65000 miles. The first time the Chevy dealer told me the switch was bad, but it always worked when I hit the button. They said it will probably just quit working one day. Well, that one day I was going about 60 mph and it automatically switched into 4 Low. Oops! Luckily nothing broke. The next day they put in a new switch for $150. A few months later the light came on again and I took it in right away. This time it was a bad encoder motor sensor. They replaced this for $350 and also put in a new switch just in case it was bad too.
