Could getting bad gas when you fill up cause the check engine light to come on and cause you to lose acceleration?
Yes. Go to auto zone and have the codes read for free. And change the fuel filter.
What can explain a Taurus's sudden and complete loss of brakes with braking power coming back a few minutes later?
%DETAILS%. Answer . Sounds like a leaky brake line.. allowing fluid to escape until it builds back up slowly.\n. \nI'd check the reservoir to see if its full and drive around the block a few times then check it again. BE CAREFUL!! If that's not it, it could be a failing \nmaster cylinder..
What causes a 1999 Cougar with a V6 engine to cut off briefly while cruising then turn itself back on a few seconds later?
Same problem, you need a new alternator. Period. Some will try to say it's other stuff, but you will just spend a fortune till you get a new alternator.See if your lights pulse at night, if they do and they will you need one.If you have a friend who knows cars or you think you are good at changing p…arts do it yourself. It is a 3 hour job. Or the dealer will do it for about $ 450.00So see if you can do it. $ 210.00 for a new alternator.Steve Answer How fast were you cruising and what is the rpm's when the car shuts off and then back on? these cars have a rev limantor wich at a certain rpm will shut down until the rpm's come back into range. if you are talking 90 mph or faster that is what is causeing your problems.IT'S A SAFTEY FEATURE!!!! Answer the alternator guy may be right, but it could also be a vacuum leak, depending on when it shuts off, if it is shuddering on idle then i'd say vacuum*not a mechanic* Answer There are a few other things that can cause this... Assuming you may have left out some details... If the car runs fine otherwise; smooth idle, smooth acceleration, etc: two possibilities that are common - 1. Computer is failing, fuel mileage will not be what it once was (by several MPG) and eventually it will not restart even with you turning the key. 2. Timing control module failing, no other symptoms... same end result as above: it will get worse till it fails completely. Although there are other possibilities, these are the most common in ford powered vehichles. Good luck (MORE)
Your 1995 Berretta automatic feels like it is slipping when you hit about 40-60 miles per hour It only starts after about 10 minutes of driving and it constantly slips back for a few seconds and then continues at speed Is this a transmittion problem?
Answer . I dealt with this with a 91 Beretta last year. First off, is your check engine light on? If so it may be shooting a code for a "knock sensor" or what not.\n. \nIf this is the same problem as mine, it was an issue with the coil pack and the ignition module located directly under the coil…s (they plug into it).\n. \nYour looking at a total repair cost of around 200-300 to go the full route. Plugs, wires, 3 new coils (v6), ignition module. The work to replace is kind of a pain but certainly not so hard to deter someone with auto knowledge.\n. \nThe assembly is bolted to the front of the engine block across from the radiator. They go bad because of the heat that they are immersed in.\n. \nYou'll have to remove a few items on top of the engine compartment, disconnect the positive battery cable. Underneath you need to remove the starter, oil filter, than you can unbolt the ignition module and coils and pull the whole assembly out. A couple of bolts are hard to see unless your below the car. I had it down to a science and could replace it all in about 45 minutes.\n. \nGood luck. (MORE)

What could be wrong if a 1991 Buick Park Avenue stalls while driving but starts back up after a few minutes if you already replaced the fuel filter and coil?
Answer . Spark plugs, plug wires, air cleaner, PCV valve, EGR valve, loose or cracked vaccuum hoses (vaccuum leak).

How do you reset the Airbag Light for a 03 i have it on while im driving and its getting annoying at times?
If you have an airbag warning light on you need to have it serviced immediately. That is telling you that your airbag system is malfunctioning and may mean if you were to get into an accident, your airbags wont deploy to literally save your life. If you ever have a airbag warning light, or abs/brake… warning life you need to have it looked at as soon as possible. When you have it serviced, if everything is fine it will turn off the warning light. . Answer . some time you can take the battery loose an this will reset it.keep it off for about twenty seconds.

Why would a 1992 Bonneville SSE stall while driving and start back up a few Minutes later and the car has a new fuel pump?
Check computer for codes. It's not uncommon to get a bad fuel pump. I had the same problem with my 92 SE. It wound up being the ignition module under the coil pack. Common knowledge is that if the module is bad, the engine will not start at all but if memory serves me correctly, my mechanic who dia…gnosed the problem told me that the module not only controls idle timing it also controls higher RPM timing and that's what was happening. I could drive for anywhere from 5-20 min. before it would shut off and if it sat for 10-15 min it would start up and run for quite some time. After changing the module, it never did it again. The module was about 107.00 brand new at Advance Auto Parts. Hope this helps (MORE)
I have a 1995 Bonneville that did the same thing. Your problem is you have a bad crank angle sensor. When you run your car on the computer it will not show up, but that's what your problem is. I took mine to the dealership and it was replace, cost about $230, and it has not happened since. Been abou…t two years since replaced. (MORE)
If a couple separates for a few months and gets back together because of love does it mean that the marriage will last and be stronger the second time?
Answer . It can go both ways. They obviously didn't like being apart which will make them work harder to stay together. \nThe bad thing thing is the problems that made them split are probably not gone and will come back. There is no gaurantee, but it's up to the two of them, and nobody else.
Why when you are at a complete stop in a 96 dodge avenger and you press the gas to accelerate it only revs for a few seconds without the car moving before the car kicks back into gear?
Answer . \nsounds like your torque converter is going out. If you need to build up revs to get the torque converter to pump enough fluid to pressurize the gears, your converter may be going out. Once you gets enough pressure, that is when you get the "kick" in gears.
Your 86 Mazda 323 cuts out then dies while driving then you must hold down accelerator for a couple of minutes to start Is this a bad fuel filter or pump?
Answer . This could be one of several problems. First, I am assuming that you have already done a full tune-up and replaced the fuel filter. Second, you can check the fuel pressure at the fuel filter outlet, normal is 40 PSIG, max is about 80 PSIG. Third it could be faulty fuel injectors (eit…her dirty/plugged or coils have high resistance); probably not likely as my 323 has over 200,000 miles on the original injectors. Lastly it could be your Oxygen sensor. That last item has happened to me twice; it feels like an ignition miss, but is actually the O2 sensor telling the computer to send less fuel, hence the ignition miss and stalling. If your car has over 125,000 miles (200,000 kms) you should change the O2 sensor; the part costs about $50.00.\n. \nGood Luck\nMalcolm (MORE)
What causes a vortek engine act like it isn't getting enough fuel after driving for a while when you first start off you can't get into it but then it wants to shut off but will start right back up?

Why does your red battery light come on while you are drive down the road comes and goes out in a few seconds?
I had the same problem with my 2006 BRV, the light came on whenever I went on the highway and accelerated. I went to the dealer and they said it was a software issue, they reprogrammed something and I haven't seen the red light since. If the battery light comes on occasionally during acceleration o…r uphill driving, go to any GM dealership and ask them to look up a TSB on a Rendezvous battery light on issue. It takes one hour labor to reprogram the computer. If the light is on all the time, it's the alternator. Its prolly a Charging system issue. Does the battery ever go dead? my best advice is if you have an autozone around they can test the charging system while its in the car. just hopes its not the alternator that requires tilting the engine forward and isn't an easy task.

While driving low beam lights go off then turn back on after a few minutes all other lights remain working?
you need to change the low beam relay. it is overheating which turns lights off. when it has cooled the lights will come back on. this relay is in the fuse box and they are not expensive to buy.easy to change as a fuse
What could be wrong with an inground pool light that won't stay on .comes on then goes out after a few minutes...then comes back on again?
There is a short. Disconnect all wiring to this light immediately. Do not go into pool until this is light is PERMENANTELY DISCONNECTED.. Turning off the circuit breaker is not enough if there are ever children (under 21) around. Tapeing the switch is not enough for the same reason.. Contact an el…ectrician if you feel the need for a light inside the pool, not a handyman, but a licensed electrician. Every year kids are electrocuted for this exact reason. Take heed. (MORE)
If feels like your car isn't getting gas to the engine, perhaps thefuel injectors are clogged. You may also need to change the fuelfilter.
Why would a 1975 Chevy 350 idle fine for a few minutes but when taken driving runs fine when accelerating but sounds like it is trying to die when the at low RPM's?
Sounds like you have a fuel related problem. Most likely too high of a mixture of gas compared to air. When you are accelerating the extra gas is needed to speed up but when you slow down to lower rpm`s the extra is choking out the carb. Check your tailpipe and see if there is a strong smell of gas …and if it is sooty. If it is too rich your mixture will need to be set on your carb. (MORE)

Your 7.3dieseil engine water in fuel light comes on for a few seconds every now and then should you wait until it stays on to drain it?
No, drain it now and catch the fuel that come out. If there is water in it you may need to change the filter,and clean the fuel tank to remove the water. Water is very damaging to a diesel fuel system.
Your dads stomach tightens up gets really hard and hes in alott of pain for a few minutes Then it just relaxes Im kinda worried What is it?
Get your dad to the doctor for a professional evaluation. Insist that he go, even if you have to make the appointment yourself--or insist that he go to the emergency room. These symptoms should not be taken lightly.
The first and easy thing to check is that the fuel filler cap is breathing properly. Do this by stageing the fault condition (go driving) then pull over and open the fuel filler cap- see if you notice a vaccum breaking with a great rush of air. filler caps when working properly have a tinny breather… hole that keep the air (if any) in your tank at atmospheric pressure.

Why would your 98 TJ 4.0 crank like its not getting fuel for a few seconds before starting it then runs fine if you immediately shut it off it will start right back up fuel pump or?
You have a fuel pressure bleed down problem. You could have a fuel pump allowing the fuel to all return to the tank, or you could have a leaking fuel injector. To diagnose you need a fuel pressure gauge and a way to isolate the front and rear half of the fuel system to see which end has the leak dow…n problem. (MORE)

Why would your 1998 Chevy 1500 start jerking and bucking when accelerating like its not getting enough fuel and practically will not climb a hill but run mostly smooth while coasting?
The jerking and bucking is probably along with a pop sound from the engine. This always indicated a LEAN condition with the Engine. In other words, it is NOT getting enough fuel to run under a load or that speed.
96 Chevy Corsica is getting fire and fuel to the engine but is still cutting out while driving then not starting for a few hours what is wrong?
This is a classic sign of a bad fuel pump on GM cars. They will work intermitent and then once they get hot they fail. Then once they cool off they work again.
Why does the car begin to shake when it hits thirty five and shakes for a few minutes and then stops Sometimes it begins to shake again when accelerating It seems to be getting worse?
Sounds like a suspension problem, check ball joints,bushes,shocks. Check the engine mounts.Normally made of rubber.Better to replace with polyurethane.Could be the timing is out. Also the distributor doesn't last long.So if fuel economy is bad I would suggest replacing it.
1999 Astro engine turns off while running lose power to brakes and steering not violent just turns off sometimes starts right back up other times it take a few minutes before it will start?
It would sound as if you have major carbon build up in the fuel injectors or intake manifold, I would suggest changing the injectors or to keep it cheap get a can of carb cleaner and remove the injectors and let them soak in the carb cleaner at least over night. As for the intake manifold spray the …carb cleaner in the intake (by removing airfilter) as you spray the engine will "bog" down or lower in idle as you spray but this will help clean itself up well enough to drive as you need to, another thing is explain these symptoms to your local mechanic which will cost you the most.

Your Honda accord dies not very often but everynow and then while im driving all the needles go down and the radio shuts off but in like a second it comes back on and you just keep driving as if nothi?
You definitely have an electrical problem. It could be as simple as a bad connection to the battery terminal (try tightening the terminals), or it could be that the alternator or battery needs replacing. You definitely want to get this looked at since it's not safe to drive with this problem.

Im getting another tattoo today and you have a cut where im getting it will they tattoo over it or tell you to come back when it has healed?

Should you believe a guy if he says I Love You n you hung out together once in a while during a period of a yr him coming back again few times thinking he likes you n both were not GF BF.DidI fall 4it?
girl you fell so just be open ask him what does he think about you and tell him what you think about him but make sure your alone
Does he like me if he smiles He waz standing behind me and i turned around and im pretty sure he was smiling at me but i didnt smile back for a few seconds and he dropped his head what does that mean?
Theres a pretty big chance that he does in fact like you. Next time oyu catch him smiling at you looks right into his eyes and smile right back at him and then go up to him and say "would you like to go out with me sometime?"
Well it depends, ask yourself 'did i give her a reason to be upset?' Just because she likes you doesn't mean she can't be mad at you. If yes then, there is your problem right there. If no, then she is probably playing hard to get. You said she liked you but you never said you liked her back, she pro…bably is trying to see how much you like her based on how often you text and what you say when she acts like she doesn't give you the time of day. Or maybe she is just busy, not very likely but still a possibility, just ask her if she's ok or whats wrong. (MORE)
What does that mean if the guy you like looks at you until you look back and locks eyes with you for a few seconds a few times?
Probably he's wondering who you are and if you are nice or not. If he's looking to abuse a woman for sex, he will pick on the girls in tiny miniskirts, and later on throw her out like rubbish. If the lady is decent and polite and nice and he locks eyes, he's wondering if she's worth knowing for he…r worth, her mind, her attitude, her heart. Sometimes that behaviour transcends all other things and means: in a previous incarnation, those two were friends, and usually in that case, they will meet and be friends again. Some people call that, love at first sight, yet it's deeper and full of worthy thoughts, and is not superficial or shallow. (MORE)
Why would a 92 Chevy blazer not start while getting fire and fuel coming out of the fuel pressure release when checked?
You may have some fuel pressure but not enough. Do a pressure test with a fuel pressure test gauge, it should have 41 to 47 psi to properly run the engine. Sorry, But that engine should have 9 to 13 LBS. of fuel pressure. No lower are higher are you will have problems.
this is because they are probably doing something to the site or there's a problem as soon as its working again it will be back on :)

i can start the car, and it runs for a few meters, dies out like im giving it no gas. then it will not restart. after sitting about 10 minutes or so, it will start again and is drivable for a few more meters, then dies again to have the whole process rinse and repeat itself . it also makes a loud ra…ttling noise like the valves are rattleing and then loses all horsepower then dies. once its started back up it sounds like the lifters are tapping, and just gets louder until the car dies again. it will not idle on its own.

How much did the owner lose if a woman walks into a store and steals 100 out of the register and comes back 5 minutes later and buys 70 worth of groceries and gets 30 in change?
Scenario 1: The woman paid with the $100 she stole If the woman paid with the $100 she stole, the ownerlost $100. The woman bought $70 of groceries with his money andthen received $30 in change. Work the question out step by step: First, the woman takes $100 dollars from the register. The owner …has currently lost $100. Second, the woman buys $70 worth of groceries. But it's not hermoney she's going to pay with, so it's another $70 stolen. The owner has currently lost $170. The lady pays the teller $100. That's stolen, so she is giving the$100 back to the owner. The owner has currently lost $70. Finally, the woman receives $30 back in change. She paid with theowner's money, so the owner is giving her $30. The owner lost $100. Scenario 2: The woman returned with her own $100 However, if the woman brought in her own $100, the owner would havestill lost $100 because she stole $100 and paid with her own money.Work it out: First, the woman steals $100 from the register. The owner has lost $100. Second, the woman comes back and is going to buy $70 of grocerieswith her own $100. She has not yet paid for it. The owner has lost $170. The lady pays the teller $100. This is her own money, so the tellergains $100. The owner has lost $70. Finally, the woman receives $30 back in change. The owner has lost $100. Scenario 3: The woman returns with a counterfeit $100 A third scenario would be that the woman returned with acounterfeit $100. If that is the case, then the owner lost$200. . First, $100 were stolen from the register. . Second, $70 were bought with fake money . Third, $30 were given in exchange for fake money --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is an interesting question and could depend on how you define"lost". Personally I would define the loss to the vendor as theamount required to give redress, ie put them back in the situationbefore the theft. Working through the transactions (assuming legaltender at all times) gives: Theft for $100 - vendor has lost $100 Thief pays $100 to vendor - vendor has lost $0 Vendor gives $30 change - vendor has lost $30 Vendor lets thief take away goods with a sales price includingsales tax of $70 - vendor has lost the cost price of the goods andmust pay the sales tax to the government. Thus the actual loss is $30 + cost of goods taken + sales tax onthe sales price of those goods - this is the amount that the vendorwould need to receive to put them back to the situation before thetheft from the till took place. There is also an opportunity cost which is the potential profitthat the vendor would have made on the sale of those goods: loss +potential profit = $100. Another way to see what has happened: It is often easier to look at a problem if it is either reduced tothe minimum or expanded ridiculously. In this case, if we reducethe problem to the minimum, then we consider the vendor making onlythis sale (having for some unknown reason left lots of money in thetill). After this transaction we know: . cost of goods . sales price of goods (assume greater than cost as normallygoods are sold for a profit) . sales tax on goods: some percentage of sales price which ismoney that has to be paid to the government; total paid to vendoris sales price = sales tax . money received (less change): $100 - $30 = $70 . money stolen: $100 The profit(/loss) on the sale is: sales_price - cost_price money paid to government: sales_tax After the theft is discovered: final profit = sales_price -cost_price - $100 A loss is a negative profit, so the loss is -(sales_price -cost_price - $100) = $100 + cost_price - sales_rice The money received is sales price + sales tax, thus: sales_price + sales_tax = $70 â sales_price = $70 - sales_tax Substituting this for sales price in the final loss gives: âloss = $100 + cost_price - sales_price = $100 + cost_price - ($70 - sales_tax) = $100 + cost_price - $70 + sales_tax = $30 + cost of goods + sales tax as the next amount of money the vendor has had to pay out for thistransaction - in other words the loss of this transaction to thevendor.
