      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.

      Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:

      Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
      Dirty air filter (change filter)
      Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
      Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
      Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
      Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
      Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
      Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
      Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

      Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

      Dirty or worn spark plugs
      Bad plug wires
      Weak ignition coil
      Wet plug wires

    What is causing a vibration in the seats AFTER the motor mounts were replaced?
    Hello, I recently had the motor mounds on my 2011 Honda Civic Coupe (5 speed automatic) replaced after hearing a loud rattling noise under the hood in park and idle before the car was warmed up. Once it was warmed up, the rattling noise went away. After I got it ...

      Does it do it in drive as well? Sounds like they just need to reposition the engine, because the
      motor mounts are adjustable.

    Is it my starter
    Go to start and it just clicks no start
     
    • GT500Knights

      Usually the clicking sound (like a machine guns) means that the starter motor solenoid is rapidly engaging and disengaging. The reason behind this is because not enough current can turn the motor; so it continuously tries. Causes of this are a bad/undercharged battery. If your car has been sitting for an extended period (1-2 weeks) without being started, the battery voltage will slowly drop. Also, if your alternator is unable to put out the proper voltage while your car is running, it will not charge the battery.

    Replaced the head gasket. Now the fuel injectors don't work. They work when tested.
    I kept everything in place during the head repair. When I plug in the OBD scanner I get no codes. But, this is where it gets interesting, with the scanner plugged in the car runs. Pull the scanner plug and the car stops. Any ideas? Thanks

    Can't find my oil filter
    I am trying to change the oil on the beast and can't seem to find the oil filter. I was told it would be near the gas tank but can't seem to find where. Is it in the box that looks like a pumpkin?

      The engine oil filter is located on the side of the engine block, just above the oil pan - easy reach from above the engine.

    AC stopped blowing cold air, I was told it was a problem with the compressor. Replaced the compressor, expansion valve, and drier. The AC still doesn't blow cold air. What else could it be?
