I have a 2005 camry with a check engine light on, a dtc of PO328 for the knock sensor, sometimes runs rough at idle shortly after starting and wouldn't shift into overdrive going 55mph. I recently changed the spark plugs since the car just rolled over 100k, I check the plugs and found one of them loose, retorqued all of them, cleared the dtc, started the engine and the check engine light comes back on. Any help would be much appreciated!


... Toyota Camry

I have a 2004 Kia Optima 4-cyl w/AT. I was driving about an hour ago. The car was running fine and I made a left turn. All at once the car started running rough. Then the check engine light came on, but would go off if I left off the gas (although the engine still ran rough). A minute or so later I stopped at a stop sign. I turned the car off and cranked it up again. Still ran rough, and now the light stays on. Could this be a simple fix? About 64,000 miles on the car.

I have a 2002 chrysler 300. I just had a water pump & timing belt replaced as well as an oil change and 02 sensor replaced (diagnostic pointed to this). After all the work my car would run rough as if it were running out of gas on an idle or low rpm. I took it to a dealership and they said i needed an 02 sensor that was NOT after market, a Mopar one which I had them install as a software upgrade. It lasted for 34 miles and now the engine light is back on again! Help! Single mom who has just sunk


There is a possiblity another 02 sensor went. This is not a trial and error thing. Stuff happens. I suspect that the timing belt was replaced without lining up the cam gears because they either did not have the tool to hold them while the old belt wa ... 2003 Chrysler 300M

I have a 2003 Ford Taurus SEL, the check engine light is on and when I had them run the codes they said it was running "lean" on both banks. What could cause this? Some have said it could be the O2 sensor or a fuel pump. The car only has 49,000 miles on it and runs fine. Gas mileage is down a little but overall it runs smooth. I cant get an inspection sticker until the check engine light is taken care of. Any help would be very appreciated.

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 2003 PT cruiser's engine light came on, then the car started running extremely rough. It became so bad, I had to pull over. Sitting idle, it seems to idle a little rough, but when I gas it gas, it would rev up the die down, then rev up and die down - sorta pulsating. I just checked the code for my 2003 PT cruiser by using the run-off-run-off-run method and it came back with a code p 0340. The code chart indicates a misfire in cylinder 4. Does that mean I need to change the spark pulgs? What's
