How do I troubleshoot problems for a hemi car engine? Car has been back and forth to dealer six or seven times, do to check engine light. Car has been tuned up, wire harness changed and engine decarbonized. Still engine starts rough and check engine light comes back on,   but after 8 to 10 minutes warming up, engine seems to run fine, yet the engine light remains on. This happens every time the car sits more than six hours (rough starting and so on as stated above). It has been hooked up to Auto


Misfiring is often due to ignition system components. "Decarbonizing" is Chrysler's version of using "SeaFoam" in your engine. In fact, the product is basically the same, only more expensive. It has nothing to do with misfiring unless your spark plug ... 2006 Dodge Charger

I have a 2000 nissan maxima. Yesterday i started the car it was making a belt screeching noise. I then put it into gear and the car died. Ad it died a cloud of white smoke came from the engine. The smoke came from the engine bay and the vents in my car. The car would not start again. After a few minutes I was able to start the car. It seems to run fine for the 10 feet I moved it. However every light is light up on my dash.

I bought a second car for utility use; B6000, 1994, p/u, standard trans. Only when starting and running when the engine is cold, it runs very rough and difficult to idle. At normal operating temperatures the idle is somehwat okay and it seems to run fine. Also, the tach seems to jump up and down (even when the engine is at normal operating temps). Lastly, it appears the vehicle is running very rich as you can smell unburnt gas (moreso when engine is cold) and the tailpipe is packed with black re

I have a 2003 Buick Park Avenue with 114000 miles. I had a tune up 1,000 miles ago. When I start the car in the morning every thing runs fine, starts good every time. I drive for .7 to 1 mile and the car stops dead when I slow down or stop. Car starts fine and runs very good for about a mile then the tachometer drops down to stop but the engine catches and runs OK till I stop. If I slowed down or was stopped the car engine would stop dead. After not running for a few hours it does the same thing

What should the temp gauge in my 2005 911 C2S read in "normal" operation? The engine seems to start and run beautifully, but I have noticed that the temp gauge inside the car shows the engine warming up to read "80"...and then the gauge just seems to sit at that reading no matter what I do - more or less aggressive driving, the temperature on the day, etc etc etc. The fan never seems to run after i shut the engine off, which makes me think it isn't running too hot, but the way the temp gauge nee

Somedays my car will start ok, and often, there is not even a cranking sound from the engine. The dash lights are on, but only a soft clicking sound is heard. The battery starter, and alternator checks out ok. I replaced the fuel filter, and spark plugs. It is a stick shift. when it runs, it runs very good.

2006 Dodge Charger will not start. I put the key in, turned the ignition, car started, and engine ran for a second or two, then shut itself off. I did this a few times hoping the engine would continue to run, but each time the engine would shut itelf off. Now, the car will not even start. I put the key in, turn the ignition, and get nothing.

My 2000 Grand Prix GTP Supercharged was running fine but it shut off with a "check guages" warning. The gusges were fine and the car will start but it shuts off right away. The engine will stay running if it is kept at or near full throttle. As soon as the engine slows, it shuts off. There doesn't seem to be any engine miss and I was able to drive it home by making many restarts and hard accelerations. I did observe (on a long stretch of road) that the car would only go 90MPH.
