What if, the thermostat is stuck open? The engine runs super rich in cold weather, causing the emissions warning. It would explain why it doesn't show in warmer weather

The upstream O2 sensor should rapidly change between 0 and 0.5 volts. The downstream should hover at about 0.5V constantly. I have seen this issue with a relative's 2009 Fit Sport. Unless you live somewhere very anal about emissions testing, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Now, if the catalytic converter were to clog (and cause a poor running condition ...

Looks like you have a high low-side and a low high-side pressure. This can be caused by too much refrigerant flowing into the evaporator, so it doesn't have room to expand (which is how the cooling happens). Common problems for this are The thermostatic expansion valve is stuck open or the thermal bulb is not sensing the temperature correctly. The orifice ...

Sorry for not checking back! Mechanics always say that DIYers are bad for throwing parts at a problem, they need a mechanic to properly diagnose it. Well, after doing everything that I could to diagnose it, I replaced the wires anyway. The misfires went away! Thanks for your feedback! :)

Most pins will have a small tag that buts against a ridge in the plastic case. Find that and adjust it.

It doesn't sound like you are using AC Gauges; they're essential for anything more than a quick top-up (but can be expensive). My recommendation is to take it to a garage for a full evaluation and refill. They'll tell you what's wrong (if anything) and refill to factory specs (which is hard to do with a can of air from the car spares place)

A dirty throttle body can cause these symptoms. It is best to have it removed for cleaning. It is not possible to do a sufficient job without doing so. You can remove the throttle body and remove the sensors attached to it so they are not damaged by the cleaner. Then it can be cleaned with a can of throttle body cleaner and clean cloth. If it has electronic ...

I have that same issue with my 2009 Honda accord coupe. I always wonder what that is. It sounds very loud and the noise doesn't sound nice. It sounds like "there is a huge problem with your ride" when i start it. I also notice that the sound gets worse or I hear it more when the oil level is low. Yeah, my car also loses oil quick; sometimes ...

In addition to the carb gaskets, double check the rubber intake boots for cracks that can open and close as the engine vacuum changes, causing occasional lean running, making the RPM increase. A cheap diagnostic is to warm up the engine, then when the idle is hunting like that run a garden hose or other smooth stream of water over each gasket and rubber ...

I wish I could give you a more exact answer, but I had this issue on a Harley of mine a few years ago. In and out of the shop for 2 years or so because it would lose charge in the battery overnight, where I had to remove the main fuse when I got off just to prevent it from happening (annoying, but better than another couple months in a shop where they can't ...
