    2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited stalls while idiling

    I checked for codes with scan tool and found none. Could not find an EGR valve on the engine. Checked the air filter and it was pretty clean. Took the connecting tube off of throttle body and it looked as though it could use a cleaning so I took it off the engine and cleaned the build up from...

    2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited stalls while idiling

    I bought a used Jeep Cherokee from a dealership a couple of months ago and everything has been fine until a couple of days ago when I noticed the car stalled when I pulled up to a stoplight. I restarted the car and it took off and stammered a couple of times then ran smoothly until the next...

    Freon evaporating out of cans?

    I have been arguing with my cousin about an experience he had and is adamant about why it happened. He had bought several 14 oz cans of r-12 (24 to be exact) before the price went up in the early 90’s and stored them outdoors in his metal building for 6 years. When he needed to use a couple of...

    2012 Nissan Sentra MPG

    OK-I may take that into consideration. Now I want to hear from people who actually have 2012 Sentra with the 2.0 engine. What MPG figures are you getting around town? Let us hear from you!

    Well, I think I have heard it all now. Why cant we just entertain the idea that manufacturers stats may be misleading?

    2012 Nissan Sentra MPG

    I know for a fact this one is driven gently. This is my wife’s car and she is 64 years old and drives it like a granny. No jack rabbit starts or speeding—as a matter of fact, I don’t like riding with her because she doesn’t drive fast enough for me!

    2012 Nissan Sentra MPG

    That all sounds plausible but still hard to reconcile advertised 26 mpg with a real 18 mpg. That’s an 8 mpg difference! Not even close!

    2012 Nissan Sentra MPG

    I purchased a 2012 Nissan Sentra with the 2.0 engine. Specs say the car should get around 26 mpg in town but the car gets around 18 mpg in reality. Engine is smooth running and accelerates smoothly and idles quietly. Is the gas mileage low for around town driving or are the manufacturer’s...

    chevy silverado OBD2 codes

    Just had the chance to re-check the codes after clearing them the last time I posted. 3 codes were stored--P0101, P0171, P0174. These are the same 3 codes as the last time. What should I be looking for to correct the problem that is setting these codes?

    Silverado bogging occasionally during acceleration

    Well, after getting all the Memorial Day doings out of the way, I took the MAF sensor and cleaned it with the proper cleaner and took my performance cold air intake air filter out and cleaned it and re-treated it and installed both. Bogging problem has gone away. Better throttle response now and...
