Ok .. if the cost isnt too much then i think replace the Crank Position Sensor .. the usual symptoms for this are the car will start and run fine but when it gets hot it will fail and the car will cut out .

It will not start until it cools down .. to test you would use a scope and see the pattern when it wont start .

I think you have more than one issue with the car atm but this may be one of them .

You also need a fuel pressure gauge fitted .. when it doesnt start (15 mins ) then make sure it has fuel pressure ..

The reason is .. both of these faults will NOT generate a fault code and this is what you have .

Please print this and give to your mechanic .

I would also add .. when the car doesnt start then put a noid light on an injector and make sure its working correctly .

I bet you do too Dont know

What does your husband think of all this Confused

He did not like it that much! He would not mind to pay if it is right!
But He likes the owner personality. Sincere and honest (even not 100% I think LOL).
My husband type of man every one likes to be friend at first sight LOL. He is very generous, positive thinking and give people credits in advance LOL.

Sorry, took that long to respond because He was then tried working on it . I did print and handed to him.

Finally,

I just picked the car 2 hours ago, after almost 4 months short Question
He replaced new gas, coil #5, all sparkplugs, and 6 new injectors.

This morning, I asked what were exactly wrong with it. He said I replaced coil #5. Then I asked so it was not injectors? Injectors make it run, but for smooth, coil is. I do not like after fix the car still hesitating. I did not charge you the coil and all new sparkplugs replaced.

For that 4 months of diagnosis and replacement parts, Total out of the door $3000 US cash. Was it good, fair or high?
My husband said, good price even he does not know much about our car but he did put lot of hours working on it.

The car still not run smooth as of in relearn stage after many times of discharged battery, I hope.
Bring the car back next week to get adjust if any, he said.

Much appreciated to All Of You here ! Especially Demort!

I will reported back when the car relearned done.

Thumb

let the car adapt ... then check for fault codes after a few weeks of driveing ..

Tell the garage to check the fuel trim settings .. these are the adjustments the car makes to compensate for a fault .. if needed then post them please and ill check them ... give it a few weeks of driveing though .

progress at last !

I could not say how much I appreciate to your insight!
He has been driven so far around 10 miles since.

Few minutes ago, on the way to inspection station, check engine light is on.
I called the guy he said inspection will passed even that engine light on. I told him it is not that, the matter is what is going on with the car still? My husband on the way back to your shop now.


What could be wrong you think?

Thank you

He just checked the code. I asked what was going on. It runs rich on bank 1 and bank 2. He cleared the code and did not recall. He said could be fuel regulator or so.

My husband drove home and will bring the car back there tomorrow for adjustments.

If its running rich on both banks then it needs a new Maf sensor .

To check .. ign on , use a tester and check the voltage .. it should be between 0.9 and 1.1volts .. if outside this replace .

Engine running and you want about 18 Kg/h if the above is ok .. even so its the first item i would be looking at .

I think your husband needs to contribute to the deMort JustGiving fund Grin

Why doesn't he join the forum himself...I hope that's not deemed offensive in any way but it seems a bit odd that you are and he isn't Dont know

Good luck with the investigations Thumb
