Diagostic codes P1259 indicates a problem with the VTEC control system on your car. There is an excellent article found here, and also provides a method of diagnostic the problem. It shows you if it could be a wiring/sensor problem, or a oil pressure/clock problem. most likely cause is excessive engine revving or jack rabbit starts http://www.asashop.org/autoinc/jan2005/techtips.htm
1990 Toyota truck 3L V6 why does power fail to the fuel pump after the ignition key returns from start to run?
The computer detects whether the engine is running and turns off the fuel pump in about five to ten seconds if the engine didn't start. If the engine starts and the fuel pump shuts off anyway, check for diagnostic codes, verify that the relays are working properly and check that the computer is able to determine when the engine is running. BTW, it's probably NOT a problem with the computer.
Try starting the engine with starting fluid first, if the vehicle starts briefly you have a fuel delivery problem. Borrow, rent or buy an OBD2 diagnostic code scanner and use it to see if there are any "codes" in the computer. Electrical problems will show up there. If neither of the above seem to help, run a compression test.
Do you have an old diesel or a new one? If you have an old diesel engine, you turn the key to the "run" position and look for the glow plug light. Glow plugs heat the cylinders, and when the engine is warm the light goes out, you turn the key and the engine starts. On a new diesel, you turn the key and it starts.
What would be the best way to determine why a 2002 Mazda protege with 60000 miles takes a lot longer to start?
A computer diagnostic test will give you a lot of information about the status of the engine. It's relatively simple, just borrow, rent or buy one of the OBD2 code scanners, and plug it in to the diagnostic port on your vehicle. Many of the auto parts retailers can lend or sell you a code scanner AND help you figure out what the diagnostic codes mean. One thing to try that ISN'T picked up by…
Why when you do long ride with your gsr 2000 you have cut off at 5000 rpm .. at beginning cut off a 8200 at usual?
The fuel pressure could be dropping as the engine runs for a while. It could be as simple as a fuel filter that gets blocked as you drive, or it could be the fuel pump pickup screen inside the fuel tank or even the fuel pump that starts to fail when it gets warm. There are plenty of other possibilities, but those would probably show up on an engine diagnostic scan.
One common problems is a plugged catalytic converter, if the engine starts fine and then starts to stall or feel like it does not have any power after running for a while it could be the catalytic converter.. the engine starts loosing power because the exhaust has nowhere to go (the catalytic converter is partially or totally plugged) Compression starts to go down causing the engine to stall or die. If you leave the car…
