Having problems with your 2003 Ford Crown Victoria ?

I have a 2003 cvp. As I accelerate to get on the freeway, or under severe load, the check engine light blinks. Code was misfire in cylinder 6. A mechanic felt it was not the coil or the spark plug, but the injector. He told me to put cfoam (sp?) in a full gas tank and see if it helps. My gas pump then went out and I replaced it.

More than likely you have a misfire due to a coil. In 11 years of working at a ford dealer as a driveabilty specialist I have never seen a crown vic injector fail. If it has a misfire code again I would replace the coil and plug on the appropriate cylinder.

I have a 2005 Chevrolet Aveo and the check engine light came on and stayed on. We had it check and the code said that it was the gas cap. We replaced the gas cap but the light never went off. Then the hold light came on and the two started flashing on and off. Once the lights started flashing the car lost power and did not want to excell going up hill. The code the car is putting out is P0300. Where do I start to look to figure out what is going on with the car? The car has never had any problem


PO300 This code refers to a random misfire, this indicates an ignition issue. Random intermittent ignition failures are fairly difficult to diagnose, the first thing I would do is remove the spark plugs and inspect them, if they all have an appearan ... 2005 Chevrolet Aveo

I have a 2002 Honda Passport which is having check engine light and won't start sometimes. I went to autozone to have it checked and it has a P0101 code. I have replaced my gas cap already and it still would not stop the starting problem sometimes and even when I am in the traffic light sometimes it would just stall.


Hi P0101 is the MAF sensor, replace that or try cleaning it and your fault should go.RegardsDan ... 2002 Honda Passport

It fired right up, was driving it home it died, oil light, battery light, and check engine light came on. Checked oil and it is full. So checked the battery it was sitting at 12.25 volts, so I went and bought a new battery, hooked it up and it started right up but oil light, check engine light and battery light came back on and before I could shut it off it died. Went out to Check battery


Try checking the altenator. If the starter and battery were gimpy, the altenator may have a blown regulator too!. It sounds like there is a short in the system causing this problem. Most likely the altenator or component in the charging loop. WF ... 1997 Mercury Sable

The problem started with the gas cap. The engine would not go above 1200 rpm until you shut off the car tightened the cap and then would be fine, although the check engine light would stay on for a short time after tightening the cap. Then it started being more often. I replaced the gas cap and it ran fine (with no check engine) for about a week. Then the same symptoms returned only worse. The check engine does not go off, the car noticably misses at times and the stops to tighten the gas c

My brothers and i just rebuilt our engine she tuned over and sounded great. the next day we started it again it was idling low i had to give a little gas till it warmed up but the check engine light went on two days ago i used my scan tool and it said it was the ect, circuit high, we replaced all the sensors in the engine when we rebuilt..also my headlights wont go off unless i shut the truck down now and if the hazards are on and i step on the breaks the hazards stop why is this short happening


Ect high circuit means that the computer thinks the connector is unhooked. If it isn't then you need to check the wire for a 5v signal.\015\012\015\012Not knowing what year truck were talking about I will assume you have a 2 wire sensor. ... Chevrolet Silverado 3500

My 2005 Jeep Liberty v6 3.7L 4x2 (Basic base model) check engine light came on and my car mileage is 90,100 miles but I did not pay attention if it came on at 90k. My gas cap also was lost a few days ago but again did not pay attention if that caused the engine light. I went to autozone and bought a locking gas cap (stunt I think was the name). I replaced it and light still on. I was just wondering what else should I consider with this check engine light that just came on.


Give the computer a day or two to recognize the new gas cap and turn off the light. If it doesn't go off, your best bet is to visit a parts store and have them scan the computer for you to determine the cause of the light. Auto Zone and several oth ... 2005 Jeep Liberty
