    when you pull the plug wire off it doesnt change idle at as all other 3 plug wires do. when out of the engine the #3 plug is showing that it is getting fire. spark plug is jet black when i pull it out. ohm tested injector and its good. could it still not be getting fuel

      If this car originated in California than it has two cats. if from the other 49 states then it has one. The CA car has a cat integral with the exhaust manifold and then has an add'l cat under the car, whereas the 49 state car has one cat under the vehicle.

    So if I drive for more than 30 minutes and turn off my car it won’t turn back on immediately unless I wait about 15 mi
    Hello Anyone I am really going crazy. I have bought 2 fuel pumps that costed me a total of around $500 (included installation) and my problem is still not fixed. So if I drive for more than 30 minutes and turn off my car it won’t turn back on immediately unless ...

      Blaming the fuel pump a second time seems really dumb so I'm not so sure now after hearing that as to whether he is who you want to try to fix your car. The Oxygen sensor maybe if there is a fault code present. Is there and what is the code or codes? You don't need a K & N air filter either. If this is one of the filters that you have to oil then you do not want that because it fouls up the mass air flow sensor.

    Why does my car hesitate when I step on the gas?
    The hesitation or miss just started. It will hesitate when starting from a stop and when the power steering is at max. There hasn't been any such symptoms when under way. There is no engine light, and it's not the transmission/gear slipping.

      A lot of times pulling the codes will show things that may be going on but not setting the check engine light , not all codes will set a light, so plug in a scanner and see what it tells you.

      I just had this problem and was very questionable about it too but it turned out to be the throttle position sensor

      I don't think the body work had anything to do with it, best thing to do would to plug in scanner and check for codes, take it to Autozone, it's free.

      If this happens only when you turn on your A/C, the couple of options you have are a bad A/C clutch, the serpentine belt, or possibly the mounting bolts for the compressor have come loose.

      Insufficient description. Please clarify the approximate location of this "motor sound" because you did not even say whether the noise is on the engine or under the dash. Also give us more to go on than "motor sound" please.

    Why does my engine idle low?
    I replaced the alternator last week. I want to know why the idle is low when I come to a stop. It runs about 500 to 600 RPMS after sitting at 1000 or so when I start it up. I had the battery disconnected for about 24 hours because we gave up on one night and ...

      So the alternator was replaced before it started giving you idle problems rights? And battery was disconnected while you did this? If so, you've reset the computer and it needs time to "re-learn" and usually will with so many starts or a good run of random driving. Newer cars maintain adaptive learning data for idle speed, engine and transmission performance tuning, as well as diagnostic trouble codes and test results for emission system monitoring. Use memory savers next time when disconnecting the battery to prevent this.

    How many 02 sensors are on this engine? I am told by 2 shops that I have 2 bad ones but didn't tell me which were bad.
    mileage is 59000 miles and this condition causes the check engine light to stay on. Should I replace all of them? Also the dealer said the catalytic converter needed to be replaced. I don't know how correct any of this is. Any help appreciated Thanks, W sundberg

      it sounds like they trying to take your money if you can get the codes it will point you in the right direction google the code and research a little and you should find out what sensors you need sometimes they can be high prices sometimes ebay all ways have the best ones get a code reader or take it to aamco or a auto store like auto zone and the will get the codes for you for free and some sensors are easy to do your self

      I believe you have 4 O2 sensors all together. Two of them are mounted on the exhaust manifold, one on each side, this is because you have a V engine, then one before the catalytic converter, and another right after it, before the muffler. As far as the catalytic converter goes you can't do much for it, only option you have is replacing it. If it really is defective.

      Check the large amp fusible link between the battery cable and the fuse box in the engine bay.
      Also check the battery cables, both positive and negative, and even though you have a new battery it doesn't hurt to double check the voltage just to be safe.
