I have a 2000 tahoe with a 5.7 litre. On a long drive the engine light came on. When I continued to drive, it had a sound like the A/C kept drawing power from the engine but this was only intermittent and barely noticeable. The following day it started with trouble and then the next day it would not start; battery power is strong. Diagnosing the code from the digital reader comes up with a code P0440 which is a generic emmissions number. Any ideas where to go from here?


A code P0440 could mean one or more of the following has happened:\015\012\015\012The gas cap is not installed or working properly\015\012The purge solenoid has failed\015\012 ... 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe

Well, we have a 1993 jeep grand Cherokee. It runs/sounds perfect. It started getting hard to start when cold, losing power and jerking while driving. Also couldn't hear the fuel pump kick in so we changed out the fuel pump. It was fine for a few days with no problems. Check engine light started coming on but it didn't stay on. It would come on and go off with no rhyme or reason really. Engine sounded fine and had no problems. Finally, the check engine light came on and didn't go off. Fi

My car wouldn't start yesterday and I got a jump start. It's been starting ok but wants to lose power while I'm driving or sometimes speed up on it's own. A few times it died as I slowed, but I was able to start it. A couple of times when it was losing power, the engine check light, oil light and a few others were flickering!

2000 olds intrigue - while driving the car seems to buck and lurch and the service engine soon light comes on then may go off next time i drive the car. I have not had chance to check any engine codes. car seem loose power during accelleration which will cause the service engine light to come on, once up to speed the car seems to "shed pounds" and the engine starts to behave normal. I have been thinking that this might be fuel filter being clogged. I have 136000 miles on car. change oil/airfilt

I kept driving about 2 more blocks and every single light came on and the car just died in the middle of the road - Just like that. I could not restart it.

We have a 2001 Kia Optima. The check engine light came on, the car started losing power while driving and then quit running. The timing belt was going bad. We had it replaced. That did not solve the problem. We had the fuel pump replaced and the cam shaft sensor. Still had the same problem. We can drive it for about 25 miles and the problem starts again. We let it sit for 10 minutes and we can drive another 20 miles before it happens again. When it loses power, it feels like it's down shifting.

I have a 1999 ford escort LX with a little over 100,000 miles. While driving home from work the engine started "chugging" and losing power to the point that I could barely move. When in neutral the engine ran rough but would rev. When I put it back in gear the car would barely move, the check engine light began flashing and there was a slight burnt smell. The car has no problem starting but I am now afraid to drive it anywhere.
