    What is wrong with my car?
    When it starts, it will run okay. Other times, it will jerk when put in gear & won't run.

      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.

      Do not skip this important first step - there are literally hundreds of possible fault codes. Avoid wasting/ throwing money at the problem.

      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

    My timing belt has snapped, is this a job that has to be put in the shop and how much
    • HouseCallAuto

      This is an interference engine. that means that if the T belt breaks that the pistons bend the valves from the assembly going out of synch. So, yes. it has to go in the shop and expect a bill of about $1500 or more if it has bent valves.

    Why doesn't my CV Axle match the OEM part listed?
    The OEM part calls for a snub shaft, mine is all one piece. it has two CV joints and a male shaft on both ends, the OEM calls for a female stub on one end.
    • Jimm

      Several possibilities; revision / change to the design during the model year - often (based on the vehicle build date) the manufacturer may make midyear changes. Other possibilitiy is, the axles you are comparing are not for this vehicle application - but may be for another vehicle.
      An easy check for the correct parts - try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; or for the replacement parts and comparison.
      For example, the halfshaft assembly (PN DW8005) for the Front Left or Front Right (automatic transmission) with ABS is; 20 15/32" (51.9906 cm) overall compressed length, and has 34 splines on the transmission (inboard) side and 33 splines on the outboard side - for your vehicle.

    having trouble getting the torque converter in place
    I pulled my engine without removing the tranny. I;m having a time of fitting the torque converter back into the tranny before the new engine goes in

      Spin it a couple of times, it takes 2 clicks to flush it with the bell housing. The tricky part is the first drop where the splines should line up, once they do, spin it around and it will fall into place.

    How to check manual transmission oil level?
    • Jimm
      7/7/2011 Jimm
      The transmission housing should have a fill plug on the outside of the transmisson - higher than midpoint. The plug can be removed and the fluid checked at this point. If fluid is needed, fill the transmission until the fluid just runs out of this fill plug level.

    How do you check trans fluid level when the car isnt equipped with the dip stick ?
    • Bill
      3/10/2011 Bill
      THIS IS A PROCEDURE THAT SHOULD BE DONE WITH GREAT CARE. IF IN DOUBT, DON�T GET A PROFESSIONAL The way you check the transmission fluid is. 1 put the car on a lift. 2 lock the parking brake. 3 start the car. 4 run the selector thru the gears just like any other car. 5 lift the car up (with the engine running) so you can go under the transmission. 6 remove the transmission plug (it is located approx in the center of the transmission on the bottom). 7 if any fluid comes out put the plug back you are good to go. If nothing comes out then add fluid until some does then put the plug back.
