Please or to join the conversation. Is it better to rebuild the original engine or buy another used one? Second time, mechanic is stumped. I took the car for a short drive and nothing happened aside from the fact that the Check Engine light now comes on and off. That said, I'm not going to sink thousands of dollars into it at this point. Remove wiper arms pry off covers to expose the nuts. The part store stated the codes were: P0304 X 2 and P1445. Well my dad and I poured over the engine and sure enough a crack had developed on the underside of the air duct.
You might want to check your fuel pressure to make sure that you are getting the correct fuel pressure supplied by your pump. There is no way to get a wrench onto it. Are all the lines and the air snorkel installed correctly? He removed it, and problem gone. It won't start up again for several minutes. Spark plugs need to be replaced after 100000 miles, so this is one of the things I did to my car as they were full of oil.
Letting the engine fully warm up as in, temp gage in the middle is not a cure. On the highway at constant cruising speeds the car rides and purrs great. Now, a month ago, she started giving me almost the same problem. . Does this test tell me anything? Since then it has happened at least once a day, and yesterday it happened a lot while I was driving home, but not at all when I headed to work. I had the Same problem as you did.
Answer where is the fuel fillter on a 2002 Nissan altima?. The car has 110K miles on it, I am the only owner, and while not a perfect good keeper, I have always gotten the oil changed and taken it in every 30k miles or so for tuneups. They did something, I forget, but said it fixed but might be Timing??? I am not ready to give up on this Pathy just yet. If it's an aftermarket alarm, figure out what type of alarm it is, and look around online for … instructions on disarming it. First I'd like to say that with these cars, the unusual or unexpected tends to happen. Also, he doesn't know what the part is and he says it might cost real high.
This has been a great car and has given me no real problems. If it stalls again, it's gone. It sounds as if someone put an orange or an apple in the muffler. Fuel pump is ok, there are no warning lights, we have no idea what could be the problem. Please dont say timing belt. I need to maintain pressure on the accelerator to prevent stalls, and sometimes pumping the accelerator will temporarily clear the problem for a few seconds to a few minutes, at random. Does it stall out when you put your foot on the brake, or stopped i.
I called a local garage to ask about a diagnostic check and was told without a code he wouldn't know where to start. It also smells like gasoline in the cabin and the gas mileage is terrible 17 mpg. It usually only stalls while stopped - foot on the brake - though a couple of times, it has stalled while slowly cruising - no gas - into a turn, like a driveway. I will be hooking it up to the vacuum gauge tonight, assuming I can get the front O2 sensor out to check the back pressure. I believe it is 18 and just replace it.
When the car dies, it generally starts back up. I replaced both sides, when one started to fail and ordered them from here: Thank you for your order at Sparkplugs. In order to start the engine I need to keep the accelerator pressed as it takes quite a long time to turn on. That said, I've learned a ton throughout all of this and given that I'm 28, assuming that I can put the knowledge to future use. None of the auto parts stores will rent one. After it shuts off, the car restarts, but if I let it idle too long it usually shuts down again.
It starts again, but continues this until, for some unexplained reason, it stops doing this and runs normally. Put Emergency Brake on 5. But then it starts and runs fine for a while - it can be 10 minutes or an hour before the same thing occurs again. Fuel filter is located somewhere between the tank and the engine. Hoping that in the next couple of days I'll have a well running vehicle back.
