Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

I have a 50cc Direct Bikes scooter and I leave it outside work for 6/7 hours each day. When I start it up, there is no acceleration for a least 10 minutes. It coughs and splutters once started and will not exceed 5mph. Then suddenly after 10 minutes or so it accelerates away as if nothing was wrong. I am concerned that this problem will get worse and I won't get home one night. This seems to happen when it is really cold outside ( I'm in Scotland). Is there anything I can do to stop this happeni

Electrical problem? Ever since it started to get cold outside I've been having problems with the '96 es300 not starting. Today I warmed it up for a good 20 minutes and went to get my kids at school. After ten minutes of not being in the car, the car would not turn over and required a jump. The battery was replaced already, prior to today, and the power antenna has been disconnected because that's what was thought to be wrong with it the last time. The mechanic said nothing at all was drawing on


Have you had your starter checked to see if it is operating correctly? ... 1996 Lexus ES 300

Everything works in the car but after driving I turn off the car. After few minutes to a couple of hours I get back into the car to try to start the car and I get nothing. Not a sound. I have all my dash lights, radio, head lights, everything turns on but it wont start. Now when the car sits for 4 hours or longer it will start up like there was nothing wrong with no problems. What can be the problem?


Sounds like your starter could be heating up on you, check to see if any exhuast pipe runs close to the starter, and see if the starter has a shield protecting it from heat. ... Saturn SC1

Hello. my 2009 CRV had been seeming to make some odd noises when changing gears from park, reverse, and drive. The dealership said nothing was wrong. I had been keeping a close eye on it for a few months. Nearly every day I would go outside for a few minutes and just sit there and change gears for a few minutes to hear any changes. Would doing this be bad for the transmission? If so i'll stop immediately and just drive it until things get worse.


Changing gear wont hurt your car unless its thumping into gear, you should all ways put your foot brake on anyhow when changing into reverse or drive to stop this thumping but going into drive then reverse realy wont hurt it in any way ... 2005 Toyota Corolla

My 2001 Mercury Cougar sometimes cranks and sometimes wont. We have tried everything the battery, the starter,the fuel pump, vaccum hoses, relays, fuses everything. Sometime you can go outside and try it the next day and it will crank back up but sometimes it takes weeks but eventually it will crank. It wont be gettings any fire one minute and will the next. You just never know. Does anyone know what this problem could be??


Sounds like maybe your ignition control module is going bad, if it only cranks over every once in a while and has a mind of its own. ... Mercury Cougar

Not working My son has a 2002 Ford Ranger truck and the wipers, dash lights, and the windows wont work. We thought maybe it was just some fuses but we don't have a manuel on it so we took it in and they fixed the window problem but it stopped working in about 30 minutes. We have heard so many different things could be wrong so we are really confused now. We have put alot of money in this little truck because he doesn't have it and we still can't get everything working. Please help! Thank you, Ca

I have a 1999 GMC jimmy we are having problems getting it to start after it has been setting all day and the tempature is cooling down outside around the 50 degree,my wife grinds on it for a few minutes and it will not start I get there 15 minutes later and it starts wright up.Do you think this could be a fuel pump problem our a gas cap issue.


I think it could be a fuel pump problem if the car turns over and does not start. To check this, put a few tablespoons of gas down the intake, or spray starting fluid into the throttle body (intake).\015\012\015\012If it starts right up, ... 1999 GMC Jimmy

1996 chevy 1500 pickup 4.3L vortec.v6 .wont start on its own needs starting fluid when i get it to run have to constantly give it gas till it runs on its own. Heard it was an oil pressure sending unit that could be the problem. any advice will help. where is the osu located and could that be the problem. truck used to just need starting fluid now its getting worse and wont stay running until i give it a bunch of gas till the rpms ketch up.


I had a problem with fuel pressure due to a bad ground ******** the back of the engine block. This ground connects the battery to the frame through the engine block. The fuel pump is grounded to frame near the gas tank so it needs this ground strap ... 1996 Chevrolet C1500

1998 explorer intermittent starting problem. No codes pop up. Will push start immediately and restart with no problem after a push start. Not getting spark when the problem occures. Engine will turn over but wont fire up. Sometimes will start after repeated tries, then will start up immediately if shut off and restarted. Coil pack, plugs and wires have been changed. The problem is slowly getting worse. Possible theft system problem? Thanks for any help that can be posted. -B 


Try a new PCM relay or swap the ABS and PCM relay temporarily. The push start is a good clue that the relay contacts may be pitted. ... 1998 Ford Explorer

Sounds way too familiar. In the midst of trying to diagnose my engine fuel pump problem, the dealer replaced the 'SKREEM' module (which is the ignition/security/anti-theft module). This is what disables the starter and fuel pump, if someone pops the ... 2007 Chrysler Town & Country LX New Cars

98 concorde lxi runs great but when you turn it off when it is hot then try to start it 5-10 minutes later it wont start. Turns over but won't fire, sometimes it will sputter a little. 30-45 minutes later it starts right up. it is as if it needs to cool down. It acts like fuel is not getting to the injectors. Fuel pump was already replaced. when it is cooler (ambient temp) there is never a problem. No codes are present in the PCM and under hood temp seems very hot when problem arises. I am suspe

I have a 1986 Toyota Camry LE L4 2.0 Liter FI. When starting it has a real difficult time starting and when accelerating it hesitates. This gets better as the car warms up. The problem keeps getting worse each day. If I rev the engine for a minute or so the problem goes away. This too is taking longer and longer however. This morning the car eventually started, but while revving the motor it died and now won't restart. Any ideas? Fuel filter, EGR or something else? Thanks for your time.

I have had an intermittent problem with my 1987 toyota pickupcarb. Sometimes it wont idle, the problem has been getting worse, so today was tune-up day. I replaced plugs, cap & rotor and made sure the wires are in good shape. I also sprayed the carb with carburetor cleaner. It runs better, but still wont idle no matter how warm the engine is. I had the same issue a few weeks ago and found that the fuse in the ign. slot was blown. After changing the fuse it was fine. No such luck this time. Any

Turning the key has no reaction. All other accessories work. When I shake the ignition switch on the collumn it finally starts and runs great. Problem is intermittant but getting worse quickly. Almost left me strande this evening and took about 10 minutes to get it started. Runs great and once the key 'hits' is starts and runs great. No other symptoms of a problem. I can only think it's the ignition switch but don't even know where it is besides the obvious. Thanks Gregg

My 2001 kia magentis v6 (same as hyundai sonata) sometimes get stuck at 3000 rpms and wont shift unless i put it in manual shift mode. i can get it to shift then but it still wont rev past 3000rpms. i brought it to a shop and they said it was going into safe mode due to high transmission tempature. although when this problem occurs i checked the trans fluid it was hot but i could still touch the dip stick with out being burned. whenever i disconect the battery for about 5 minutes and reconnect

Wont accelerate Im not sure if its a simple problem or not. But when I put my '03 Jeep TJ Wrangler into gear and begin to use the gas it wont budge. The other day it stalled on me and smelled bad like burning rubber or like what it smelt like if i accidentally grinded the clutch. after i restarted it it moved really slow, in first it took a minute at 3k rmp to get to 10 mph and the same for 2nd to get to 20 etc. i thought i just ran outta gas but the same thing happened after leaving the gas sta

Car dying I have a '93 Buick Regal Custom. Over the past year she has gotten progressively worse with a stalling problem. She's good for about the first 15 minutes of driving but once she gets to a heated operating temperature she just sputters out. I have to let her sit for about 15 minutes and then I can try again, but the only way she stays on is if she is continually revved above 2k rpm. She is not overheating. I don't know if it's as simple as fouled plugs or something worse. Also, on top o

I have a 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 8.1 and my problem is that at any speed and even when sitting my truck will just die, almost as if it were out of fuel. I first thought it may be the fuel filter or pump, so I changed both and I still have the same problem, It runs like a champ and with no notice at all the engine just dies, I pull over and wait a few minutes and it starts right up. The problem seems to be getting worse, I have about 85k on the engine and besides the stopping periodically I

When outside ambient temperature is above 34 degrees Celsius, the car stalls and seems to not be getting any fuel. If I pull over and let motor cool for 5 minutes, the car once again starts but only keeps going for a few kilometres before it stalls once again. It seems to be a fuel; problem caused by hot weather. Otherwise below 32 Degrees Celsius, car goes well and I have no problem. I would appreciate your opinion as I have taken car to a few mechanics and all have charged for tes
