      You must use the fault code data to assist with diagnostics. Nobody just knows what is wrong. The codes tell what has happened. Attach a code reader and read the codes and repost with the codes and then we can help. Otherwise it is just guesswork.

      Read the fault codes that may be stored in the vehicle computer. That is why they are there to assist with diagnosing problems. Code readers are cheap and every DIY should have one.

      The starter is located on the bottom of the engine toward the front. Place the front wheels on car ramps. If you are lucky you might be able to get the engine started by tapping on the starter with a small hammer while a helper tries to start the engine. Often it starts. Then you can drive the car on ramps and replace the starter.

      It could be a bad ground wire or the switch is defective. A visit in a certified electrician is a help to verify this. You can use the "Find a Shop" feature of AutoMD for nearby shops.

      Replace the Blower Motor Power Module. I can't see the crash being related, the module is a solid state device up front.

      What have you done so far to resolve the problem of your vehicle? Did you already try to reset your oil light or diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to determine if there is a stored trouble code in your vehicle? It is possible that your oil pressure gauge is defective.

      I would suspect that the cat is not the origin of the coolant leak but rather something above the cat.

    Check engine code P0171 (lean bank 1) how to repair
     
    • darkmind
      9/29/2010 darkmind
      The possible causes of P0171 are dirty or defective MAF (mass air flow) sensor and/or vacuum leak (downstream of your MAF sensor). Check the condition of your MAF sensor, inspect your PCV hose and all your vacuums and check your fuel filter (condition and check for proper fuel pressure).

    The gas mileage has dropped drastically. What could cause this?
    Runs good, don't notice anything wrong except the gas mileage dropped drastically after we got the ABS sensor on the driver's side changed.
     
    • darkmind

      How many mileages does your vehicle have? It is possible that you just need a tune up. The common causes of low MPG are uneven or incorrect tire pressures, clogged air filter, fouled spark plugs and clogged or defective fuel injectors. But if you have doubt in your ABS sensor try to check its installation and diagnose you vehicle with a scan tool to verify if there is a stored trouble code addressing your ABS.

      this is vague can you be more specific? if there is a leak out of the back of the head at the lower part of the head then the head gasket is possible blown out. if it is the top of the head wll that is the valve cover usually and you should be able to replace the valve cover gasket.

    water came into the engine

      Oh my.........how did water get in? U drove into a puddle of water? It will hydrolock, an engine is supposed to compress air not water, it will wreck havok on your internals. Right now i cannot tell you the extenct of the damage (for obiovus reasons) but worst case scenario, prepare to spend big time.

      Check your air filter if clogged, replace it if necessary. Fuel filter might need to be replaced also. If problem persist, post a query again with additional details to help us better diagnose your trouble.
