If you knew these were problems before the purchase, then no. If you did not know that the check engine light was broken, maybe. Anytime you look at a prospective car, turn on the ignition, without starting, and look to see if all the lights are working. It is a violation of federal law to deliberately remove or disable the emissions control light, (check engine light). Your problem is proving the seller did this. There is an old saying, "Buyer Beware". Contact your State Attorney General and ask for advice. In the future have the car inspected by a trusted mechanic before the purchase. This will be money well spent.
A broken engine dipstick should not cause anything or have an effect on anything. A broken dipstick will make it impossible to check the engine oil and should be replaced as soon as possible.
Disc brake rotor? A pulsation in the brake pedal when applied. Distributor ignition rotor? The engine may not run or run poorly with misfires.
i tmakes the car judder a i and the engine misfires
incorrect engine timing so that it misfires
The engine , if it runs at all , will , of course , have misfires and may have a 'backfire' .
Nothing except - maybe - a broken belt.
The check engine light on a Mazda Tribute gives warning of potential problems. It can signal overheating, low oil, or engine misfires.
You can tell the engine is blown when the Ford Service department manager refuses to admit there is anything wrong with your engine and flat out refuses to supply paid for warranty covered repairs!
not necessarily unless after replacing plugs your engine misfires.
You have to find out what is causing random misfires in the engine. See related question below.
Misfire Faulty: spark plug, spark plug wire, ignition coil, ignition module, fuel injector are the most common. Coolant leaking into a cylinder is another. Internal engine problems such as burnt valve, broken valve spring, bent push rod, worn rings
a mechanic or technition
Plugs, wires, coil, distributor, injector, internal engine....
Check Engine light, misfires, cut outs, hard starts, no starts......
Could be anything. normally its the oil level is low or the sensor is broken. it could also be your oxygen sensors are broken and need replacing.
When a Hyundai is losing compression in its engine the car will not run properly. Symptoms of low compression are misfires, stalls, and overheating.
Yes allot of Engine misfires and engine performance running issues feel as if the Trans is the direct problem, but mostly never ends up being a faulty Trans. The engines On board diagnostics will set a check engine light on or flash when problems arise.
Not really. You've repaired something that was broken, but not done anything about what else that was worn.
You can spend more on an engine, but both can be expensive. There is no way to guess which is going to cost more. Some engine repairs can be as little as $100 and some transmission repairs can be $3,000 and the reverse is true.
Wiring and internal engine problems can cause misfires.
Usually misfires can be attributed to a bad plug, wire or coil.
A flashing check engine light means you are doing serious damage to your catalytic converter due to repeated misfires in one or more cylinders. If you get a code scanner (or go to an autozone, oreilly's etc. where they scan it for free) you will see a code such as P0301 (misfire, cylinder 1). Your catalytic converter is probably shot now. If it is and If you live in a state that does emissions inspections you will need to get the converter replaced after you fix the misfires. An old spark plug will generally cause the misfires.
Not unless it is leaking so badly as to get enough oil on the plug wires to short them out.
2.2 or 3.5 engine info needed along with codes and which 2 cylinders are misfiring.
