Why does my Corsa roll back with engine running in drive on hills at traffic lights?
Because if it is front she'll drive the gravity pull brings the car backwards also if the car doesn't have a lot of horse power the wheels will tend to roll back but in most all wheel drive cars that doesn't happen

Why would a 1991 Toyota Camry DLX run good while driving on the highway but cut off at a red light or idling in traffic for a few minutes?
Answer . The idle solonoid needs cleaning. Take it off of the throttle body and clean it and the inside of the throtle body itself
Who will be determined at fault when you get rear ended in traffic and the other party claims you rolled back into them?
Rear-end violation . \nThe police usually give a ticket to the person who got rear-ended. If they have insurance, the insurance company sometimes do an investigation to determine who was at fault for insurance purposes. Also, personally I would obtain an attorney who specializes in traffic law an…d ask their professional advice. (MORE)
Why is a 2002 Ranger's engine light on after driving through 2 feet of water if the truck still runs?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nI would guess that the evaporative system portion has been damaged.\nYou need Pull the codes from the computer, match the code to the troubleshooting procedure, follow the procedure to find the source. Repair the source, light will go out if that was the only problem. The…re are "monitors" or self tests the computer runs the car through a drive cycle, if a problem occurs, it may not run all of the self tests until that problem is taken care. Therefore, another problem may exist. It is emission related. OR hook up a scanner that is capable of clearing codes, and hope that none are still active.\nThe truck will run fine as the computer compensates for problems. It doesn't mean the problem doesn't exist however. Not getting it fixed will likely lead to bigger problems.\n. \n. \nPukenstein@aol.com\n. \n. \n New Answer \nAlways avoid standing water...especially if it is 2ft deep water.\nMost likely you have corrupted one of 4 sensors on the vehicle. I would venture to guess that the 02 sensor has been compromized by the excessive water, or the coolant temperature sensor, or the Throttle Position Sensor or the Evap Monitor sensor. Go to AutoZone and have a quick diagnostic run for free. Fix the first code problem, disconnect the battery & attempt to start the car 3 times. Re-connect the battery and start the engine. Examine if the CEL re-appears, if so have another AutoZone diagnostic run. Good Luck. Avoid the deep water...easier said than done in the global warming cycle we're in. (MORE)
What is the little sensor on the top of a 01 Opel corsas engine that would allow oil to pour out when the engine is running?
Answer . \nSounds like it may be the oil pressure lamp switch,these are known to fail sometimes.Don't mess around when oil leakage is severe,call at any garage for a visual check and correct diagnosis.Delay might cost you an engine.Geoff.
The check engine light just started coming on in your 2001 Rodeo 4x4 LS there appears to be no difference in driving it it still runs fine?
Answer . Use a code reader to read any stored computer codes. You'll probably find that it's something like an oxygen sensor, fuel tank cap is loose, misfire, or something trivial. But the scanner will also allow you to turn off the code.
What will cause the engine to stop running while driving and the check engine light does not come on when engine stops running?
Answer . It could be fuel pump, fuel filter or out of fuel. To be certain, you can always use a code scanner to see if there are any stored codes.
What causes a 1999 Sunfire to run rough and sputter when pressing on the gas and the engine light to blink while driving in heavy rain?
Answer . If the check engine light is flashing, it has "stored a code" meaning that you should be able to read a diagnostic code to find out what's wrong, that way neither of us will need to guess.
Answer . \nRED means DEAD do not drive...(Overheating or no oil pressure)\n. \nOrange CHECK ENGINE light is a sensor or code in the emissions system....read up it to fix\n. \n. \n. \n. \nEveryone should have a manual for their vehicle, and a professional shop manual should be available at …your local library for diagnostic procedures etc, just make copies of the right pages, as they are usually REFERENCE only...read up and good luck :) (MORE)
If you are referring to the Check Engine Light, then the computer has detected a problem with the emissions system. The emissions system will detect problems between the two oxygen sensors fitted before and after the catylistic converter, on the exhaust. This is a engine type icon. The icon that s…hows a car body, with a spanner on it (this is not the service indicator! that is displayed on the LED screen where the milage is displayed, shortly after turning the ignition on), means that there is a problem with the vehicles electrical system. In most cases with Corsa's, the alternator overcharges. In both cases i recommend either main dealer, or professional help, as both indications can be rectified using diagnosis equipment suitable for that vehicle. (MORE)
There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
What is wrong with my 1995 dodge neon that has the check engine light on sometimes it runs ok but when the light flashes it sputters misses and looses power as you go up a hill?
Answer . The computer under the hood is more than likely faulty. I have a 95 Neon (with parts car) and 95 Eclipse. The Eclipse was experiencing the same exact problem. It started out being only an occasional thing, but soon started to happen more often. I took the Computer out of the Eclipse and… replaced it with the one from the Neon parts car. The mount and wire harness connection are exactly the same, and it bolted right in. This has completely fixed the problem and the Eclipse now runs like new. The "check engine" light is STILL on, but doesn't seem to be causing any issues. I replaced the computer about 6 months ago, and it hasn't acted the same since. How-ever this MAY be a short term fix, as the new computer module you put in may eventually go bad. You should be able to get a module from a junk yard between $20 - $50, but if you wanna go new the cheapest I've seen is around $150. (MORE)
I have a 1998 Kia Sportage and it idles fine with check engine light on but when you go to drive it the motor runs rough and the check engine light blinks Any ideas?
There is oil in the fourth cylinder spark plug hole. You need to replace the spark plugs, wires and the valve cover gasket. My 1998 had the same problem. The Wires are expensive because you have to buy the coil pack with it. But this will solve your issue.
Why would a 1995 New Yorker die when driving with check engine and oil lights on but start back up when you turn the ignition again?
Answer . \nIt's possible that the engine actually died just before the Check Engine and oil pressure lights came on. If that's the case, the problem could be little more than the engine needing a tune-up or its idle speed raised.
Your 95 dodge neon stop running while you were driving with no warning just the check engine light came on the it stop?
Answer . You need to find out what the check engine light came on for. Have the computer scanned for codes. When certain errors occur that could damage the engine, sometimes the computer will just shut down the engine to prevent damage. That may be what happened to you.
1993 Acura Vigor has camshaft sensors replaced and after 30 minutes of running the check engine light is back on with the same code engine also cuts back?

I made a right turn on red on Friday, got the ticket in the mail the next day ($381). So in my case, it was a pretty fast response time. Funny, when it comes to getting my tax refund, it takes 6 to 8 weeks, but when I need to pay the state, it's instantaneous.
Answer . Is the engine tapping when running? If not, check the oil level. If the oil level is at the full mark on the dip stick, then check the oil sending switch. My just need to replace it. Easy fix if that is your problem.
Coleman's Irish Pub is just down the street from the famous inverted traffic light. They have some gift that might be what you're looking for. http://www.colemansirishpub.com/pages/misc_pubshoppe.html
Generally the check engine light will come on when the car is needof a tune up. It may run fine, however, the vehicle should still beinspected.
The engine managment light can come on for any number of reasons some people say take it to a garage but there is a way to find out yourself by doing an online search for information.
What causes in a crown vic 89 the engine red light not the check engine light to turn on at low rpm i.e. stopping at traffic light then turns off when driving again?
It's possible that the lite is your oil pressure sensor. With the engine being older and a bit worn, the pressure drops when idling and when you are driving the oil pump is turning faster which increases oil pressure. A new filter and oil change may help.
You should look under your vehicle while its running. If you haven't noticed a puddle of coolant on the drive way, you may have a bad head/gasket. Does the car smoke? If it does, your head gasket is gone. Check your engine oil. If it looks like muddy water on the dipstick, you've got coolant mixed w…ith the engine oil. If you see coolant on the ground, you may have a bad water pump. First, check your radiator hoses. Remember to check the hoses going into the heater core as well. (MORE)
Dirty air filter. Sensors going bad but not enought to set a code. Low idle speed adjustment on carb. Engine control computer needs a relearn session after battery or connection failure.
2000 Jimmy struggles going up steep hills and the engine light comes on Runs fine at all other times Feels like it has no power on hills?
You need to read the code(s) that are set. They should lead you in the right direction. Many auto parts store will provide this service in hopes you purchase parts to repair it from them.
How do I fix my 1995 Ford E350 7.3 Turbo diesel- Starts and runs fine But when I get down the road at a certain temperature it starts missing also Engine light came on and it stalls at traffic lights?
Common issues we have ran into have been cam sensor. Some give no warning or set computer codes. They just go bad. Ford will sell you one but you can save money buying one through an International Truck and Bus dealer parts counter. International Corp made/makes Power Stroke Diesels for Ford.. Some… Fords have the injector drive modules installed above the inner fender up under the windshield just in front of the driver, under the hood. The water from rain and car washes, especially POWER WASHERS, can get inside the module. Fast way to find out is to take the module off and shake it. You'll hear and feel the water inside. FORD does have a tech service bulletin out yet most service managers do not know of it. AUTOZONE can locate the tech bulletin for you through their ALLDATA system.. Dan Luttrell, Indiana (MORE)
Which uses less petrol turning off your engine at traffic lights short queues etc or leaving your engine running?
A good rule of thumb is that it takes as much gas to start your car as it does for the car to run for 3 minutes, in addition your engine takes the most damage from being started as opposed to running continuously. So you should make sure that you're going to be staying where you are for awhile (prob…ably about 5 minutes+) before turning your engine off is actually a good idea. (MORE)

Could mean a lot of things. Take your car to AutoZone and they will scan the computer in it for free and tell you whats wrong.
Yes you can! I drove one of my vehicles for over seven years with that stupid light on, and every time I had it turned off (5 times), within five miles of leaving the mechanics it would come back on.

I know this sounds surprising, had an issue with the Opel Corsa C equivalent, a 2002 Holden Barina SRi. The emission light came on after a stall and stayed on. It was just after a re-fill of the petrol tank. I turned off the engine, removed the petrol cap and re-sealed it and the light went off and …has stayed off. Hope this helps. (MORE)
Your cars rear left wheel grinds when you have 5 people in it and when you pull away from traffic lights what could it be it is a 1998 corsa b?
I would check the emergency brake set up, if it is an inner rotor or drum set up you could have a sticking pad or bad return springs, corrosion or things of that nature.
could be anything from a crankshaft sensor to a fuel flow sensor if you take it to a garage they will diagnose it and can reset it but can cost anything upto Â£50.00 to reset depending on where you take it
Depending on the area and economy, a traffic light system couldcost a city an average of $250,000 to $500,000 in tax dollars. Thenyou have the electric bills and routine maintenance costs of about$8,000 a year.
You'll need to custom build a chassis and then adapt a Corsa body to fit on top - the drivechain, gearbox and so on will all need to be replaced too. It could be done, but it'd be a major project far in advance of anything most amateur and even mechanical mechanics could manage.

No; this should not be happening. Take your car into a local auto parts store and have them test your battery and alternator. . Paul . Tuff Play - Your Playground Provider
275 dollars I believe. I think there are a lot of other circumstances it depends on though.
Traffic laws vary of course. In places where there is a solid yellow light, indicating that it will soon be red meaning stop, generally you can enter the intersection while it is yellow. The core idea is, "stop if safe to do so." If you could have stopped, but instead accelerate to make it thro…ugh while still yellow, one might argue that you violated the idea, and in some areas this is against the law. Also, in some areas (such as Oregon) where you should stop at yellow unless it's unsafe, you are expected to drive through the intersection "cautiously." (MORE)
You run it until the engine reaches normal operating temperature on the temperature gauge this way the oils viscosity will be correct. on colder days you need to run it longer.

idler may be set too low...causing the car to stall out. from a dead stop in a car with an automatic transmission you should be able to let off the brakes and the car will accelerate on it's own (without you stepping on the gas) to at least 10 mph if not closer to 20 mph.
Probably not a good idea, your power steering and power brakes will not be functioning.
Yes, but only at night! Added: If your vehicle lights go out after dark, you cannot drive the vehicle under any circemstance. Park it until daylight or call a towtruck.
Use the brake or the emergency brake. You could also give just the right amount of gas to make the car stay put but that's a lot of work. Or you could put a log or something sturdy behind the wheels Left foot on brake pedal, right foot on accelerator pedal

Oh it's only $650. I got one a couple months ago and wasn't too happy about it but I worked it off in less then a week.
first thing is find out what the check engine " light is tellingyou, Code PO????. then you will get an idea to your question . 2nd answer: I would first suspect low fuel pressure.
