Sounds like your EGR Valve is plugged up or stuck open with a carbon build-up. Try taking it off and check to see if the above is true...if so, unplug and cleanup as good as you can. Re-install and hopefully you'll be good to go!

93 Dodge Spirit hit curb Hit curb on back driver side tire. Nothing wrong with tire but right after I hit the curb, my car started to shake and slow down. It turned off completely when at a stop. Oil light came on. Pressed gas and turned key, it got me home...smoke coming from engine. Oil spilling out..no hole or anything. Engine shakes..I still have a good amount of oil and transmission fluid. When I put it in drive, it shakes and rattles and turns off. I have no money for a mechanic..please h


The smoke came from the spilled oil leaking onto a hot surface ( manifold) No problem there. The oil light coming on was probably from the oil surging away from the oil pickup in the sump momentarily allowed the oil pump to suck air hence a drop in o ... Cars & Trucks

Gas in tank/line - nissan maxima 98. still wont start. There are two lines. One with an arrow pointing to the engine the other I suppose is the return. I seem to only get anything from the line to te filter (assuming water blocking at filter). Should I keep bleeding the line to the filter?? I got abut 16 oz (1/2 water) and I put it back together and and still wouldn't start. should I keep bleeding the line to the engine or will something eventually come out of the return (wouldn't after priming


So you got water out of the fuel line? The fuel tank has water in it, you need to get that out, all of it. You cant "bleed the line" The return will be leaking fuel after the regulator reaches 30-40 psi. So maybe the pump isnt able to pressurize the ... 1998 Nissan Maxima

My 02 sonata 4 cyl started randomly reving at the light as if the engine wanted to come out when I accelerate it barely moves and when I put it in park it does have a smooth idel (it sounds like a gas golf cart if u know what I mean) the engine light came on at its a P0350 I noticed u had expertise on this. When I got it read it said coil or other electical issue, would a bad coil make the car loose engine power? thanks for your help.


It sounds like you lost a cylinder. This means that one cylinder has probably failed by either bad/worn spark plug, bad coil(which on these uses 2 and 2 wires going to plugs), or something mechanical inside the engine. These are good little cars. You ... Hyundai Sonata

My 89 Camaro has sat through the winter, and now after getting it started and "freshend" up, I am having major problems driving it. It idles and goes into gear fine, and the RPMs raise normally when I rev the engine. But when i put it in gear and press the accelorator, the RPMs don't hardly raise, or not even at all. When trying to drive on an incline, the car comes to almost a complete stalled stop with the gas pedal pressed to the floor. Again if I let off and just let it idle, or get the RPMs

Cranking the car I have to press the gas for it to start. In addition, once it is cranked I have to keep the gas pedal pressed sightly to keep the engine running. To be able to drive it I have to use both feet, one for gas and one for brake. Once I am going down the road and make a stop (red light or stop sign), it gets suggish but does not die. Only when I put the car back in park and kill the engine and try to crank the engine, will it start the dying when cranked.

Engine knocking I was driving the car all day and got low on gas and decided to get some, after filling up and 15 second of driving the car started acting like it had bad gas. I barley made it home and put in some gas treatment and 20 second later the engine started knocking, so I took it to the dealer and told them what happen and they said I spent a baron or thought a rod. All he did was listen to the engine and check the gas. I think it might be the knock sensor. 02 X type jaguar

I have a 1981 Toyota 4WD with a 22r engine. Truck has been sitting up for about 8mos. I purchased it and got it home. The only way I can start if is by pouring gas in carb. I have replaced all vac lines and put in new accellerator pump diaphram. I got all of old gas out of tank that I could and blew out the fuel filter. Every once in a while I can get it to start without pouring gas in carb. Barely touch gas pedal and let off when 1st starting. I need help/.


Check the fuel pump, maybe it is not working. if you put a new accelerator pump, I wonder if it's same as the fuel pump. if so, maybe you need to rebuild your carb, clean the small fuel line in the carb, something block there. ... Toyota Pickup
