    Please, i need an urgent assistance before taking the next step on my car.

    Its a Toyota Camry 2009 model, 4 plugs

    My Car check engine light is on and the instrument gauges are not working fine but occasionally normalizes. When ever the speedometer stops working, the tachometer, fuel gauge and temperature gauge will not be working fine, the ABS and brake light will be illuminated. All these will normalize immediately the speedometer starts working

    i got the car scanned and the following codes popped up

    1. P0798 – Pressure Control Solenoid C Electrical
    2. P0986 – Shift Solenoid ‘E’ Control Circuit High

    What could be the problem with the instrument gauges.

    I don’t want to do a trial and error repair of these problem

    Your expert advise will go a long way in giving me guide on how to tackle these problem

    What is the cost of coolant termostat for Camry 2003?, what is the function? and how do i go about replacing mine?

    • January 31, 2018 at 4:50 pm

      The Thermostat is about 2-3k, it helps your car to maintain an engine working temperature and hence reduce fuel economy, you can buy in the market and give your mechanic to fix. Most roadside Mechs advises people to remove it, but its not always to best advise.

    Greetings gurus. Pls recently my car (toyota camry pencil light automatic) broke down and refused to move. On putting it on drive or reverse, it makes a clanking sound. my mechanic said it was the gearbox, which I changed immediately. But after changing the gearbox, I have noticed the car refuses to accelerate beyond 80km /hr. I was told to clean d gearbox filter which I have done bt no improvement. Wat could be the problem? Ur advice really needed.

    • January 31, 2018 at 4:48 pm

      Have you scanned your car? scan it to see if there is any DTC and get back to me.

    Please, I have Mercedes Benz E230, 2001 model and it has gear problem.
    Switching from one gear to another is difficult, in most cases, the car will not exceed gear 3 and in some case the car will enter neutral when driving on high way.
    The mechanic called an electrician who. Said the ‘Gear Brainbox’ is faulty.
    Is that the real problem?
    Do I change the gear brain box?
    What should I do?
    I need your help, please.

    • January 31, 2018 at 4:47 pm

      He is correct. Change your gear box brain box and it will be fine. Sorry for late reply..Thanks

    seen the way you handle questions here and i must say you are doing a great job. My Honda Accord 2006 car gear handle got stucked. A mechanic did a fix but the gear still get stucked sometimes that i had to use the key to shift it. Also, the gear position lights sometime disappear or have P and D at the same time when i start the car. Please, what could be the problem?


  • January 31, 2018 at 4:44 pm

    Hello sir. Pls I recently started experiencing high RPM on my EOD coupe 2005 model (automatic). The idle cable was adjusted by my mechanic but I noticed it went up again above 1000 RPM tending towards 2000 when the gear is on P or N. I have an OBD II scanner which I’ve used to scan the car before and after this experience but the trouble codes remain the same P0141 (02 sensor heater circuit Bank 1 sensor 2) and P1157 – Air/Fuel Ratio(A/F) sensor (sensor 1) AFS Line High voltage, or Air/ Fuel Ratio (A/F) sensor.
    So, pls I don’t know what could be responsible for the high RPM, since it’s not showing any new code apart from the two that have been there since I bought the car.
    Could these trouble codes be responsible for this development?
    Pls I need ur opinion on this asap.
    Thanks. Looking forward to ur response, bro.

    • January 31, 2018 at 4:44 pm

      Its not a serious issue bro, just look for a leak on the intake manifold, especially where it joined/bolted on the cylinder head. A leak on any of the vacuum lines would give such symptom. An unplug or not well clamped vacuum line would do the same. A leak where throttle body joined the intake manifold will give such problem. Tell your mechanic to check for that and let me know when its done.

  • January 31, 2018 at 4:43 pm

    Where is your location sir? We do home service with a separate charge. We can come with our scanning machine. I am familiar with your car problem. Call.. Thanks.

    • January 31, 2018 at 4:44 pm

      My location: Mab Global Estate, Karsana District Abuja.
      Will give you a call shortly!

    I have a ’06 Infiniti M35 parked at home for a while.
    The problem is this: whenever I select the gear to D, it usually produces a ‘KPUM’ sound.
    Then when I try to accelerate, it lags before picking up.
    Also when the gear tries to shift into either 2 or 3 (not sure), it also produces another disturbing noise that can be felt within the heart. Lol

    I decided to just park the vehicle to avoid complications.
    From your experience, what do you think the problem could be?
    If it’s a transmission problem, is it something you can fix, or do I have to change the whole transmission, because I heard it isnt a wise idea to work on transmission problems, it is better to be changed.

    Also, do you guys do home service? For instance, if I decide to scan my vehicle first, can you bring your tools and do the scsnning at home?
    Attached is a picture of my beloved machine.

    Good morning sir.
    I need your help. I bought a Passat 2009 Nigerian used.mechanic work on the engine majorly the crankshaft and oil pump.
    Now its not cranking.after scanning it give code P0343 camshaft position censor and P0010 camshaft timing control.
    Sir am tired since some say its timing problem some say wiring some say the key since one button us not working on the key. Some even say the camshaft is scattering the timing after starting the car.
    Please what is the problems

    Expert Answer….

    Your car has a timing problem. Get a qualified mechanic to help you set the timing and it will work. Most Mechs these days are not qualified, because they refuse to upgrade. I know you must have been through a lot. Imagine someone that worked on your car and couldn’t start it back to return it to the way he met it because of his incompetence. It sounds funny….

    Hello bro please i’ve got an issue with my 2002 chevrolet venture. Was actually on motion and the car went off on its own. Wished i had seen your thread before now. Got a mech to check it out without scanning though because whenever we start it,it stalls on acceleration and gives some funny cranking noise plus water gushing out from the radiator,so we concluded it was the top gasket that was roasted and he settled to get that changed. After that he told me he found out it wasnt the top gasket afterall that it was the crankshaft sensor and the pushing cups which i paid him to fix too. After all the same problem persisted and in the midst of all these i found out he had misplaced my car remote without which the car can’t be cranked and also the key itself had been tampered with. This prompted me to get someone to scan the car and the error code returned was immobilizer defect,so an elect told me he’d need to take somethinf from the ignition to generate the key code and then take the key for reprogramming.

    With the aforementioned sir can you please give your expert advice.


    Expert Answer…….

    First of all, Chevrolet Venture is a serious problematic van with overheating problems. The electrician is going to remove the transponder to get the key code to get you another key. But when the key is done, which means you will still go back to the initial problem. The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Technically, Chevrolet recommend replacing the Chevrolet Venture fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump. Read more about your car from the owner’s manual and you will see this information there.

    My advice is for you to sell of the van after fixing the key, because the van will keep coming up with other problems and will definitely frustrate you or if you still love the van, do a Toyota Engine conversion for your van and enjoy it. General Motors did a recall on your van based on overheating problems.

    Vehicle Owner’s Reply…………..

    You my bro is truely a car doc i applaud your knowledge as you’ve just described my car in a few words.
    But for the emotional attachment with the car,i would have long disposed of it and aside the overheating problem,the van you’ll agree with me is a beauty on wheels plus the lush interior.
    As it stands however,i’m left with no other option than to sell off. What toyota engine would you advise a conversion to?gotten the fuel pump checked and okayed which leaves the fuel filter as the likely culprit.

    I wished i was in Abuja right now as i actually know your office. Got an EOD there as well giving me some probs.

    Thumbs up bro, you are appreciated

    Expert Answer…..

    You are welcome brother! The EOD is just like a child crying for biscuit compared to the Chevrolet Venture that is a demon, looking for whom to devour! You can easily give a child the biscuit and the child will stop crying. Which mean your EOD issues can be handled easily, no matter the problem it has. if you have any other serious problematic vehicles that is disturbing your friends or any body around you, please let me know. I will flog them.]quote

    Lol so on point bro..will spread the word man !!
    Have a nice day


    Hello bro,still on the chevy venture please and i need your expert advise on how to go with resolving the problem with the key. As narrated initially,i left the key plus the remote which serves as the security before the engine can be cranked and he’s misplaced it. We’ve been programing and reprograming the car but without the remote to turn off the blinking light there’s no way to get the car to crank. The way the car works is you turn on the ignition then press the remote before the engine can be cranked.

    I’ve tried to explain this to the elect they seem not to understand what i’m on about. Please have you got an idea how to disengage or bypass the security since the remote is missing so the car can be cranked directly with just insertion of key?

    Expert Answer….

    Bros, tell him to use the following to reprogram the keys provided your van does not have option codes (Z49 or BAE)

    Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
    Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON (vehicle will not start).
    Observe the SECURITY telltale, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn OFF.
    Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
    Repeat steps 1 through 4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes ( the vehicle is now ready to relearn the Pass-lock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK).
    Important: The vehicle learns the Pass-lock Sensor Data Code and/or password XXXXX the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.

    Start the engine (the vehicle has now learned the Pass-lock Sensor Data Code and/or password).

    This will help him to crank your van!

    Kindly help me out on this sir…

    I finally got my Nissan altima 2.5, scanned today after using it for 3 months…

    I was complaining of hard start back then when I got the car..
    Sometimes, the car starts normally for a period of time (a week maybe) without any form of hard start… It starts once…
    Sometimes it just begins the hard start again and starts only after 3 or more tries…
    However, its been working fine for over a week now but I just decided to get it scanned.
    The scan codes are attached below..

    Now my issue is which one of these codes could be causing the ocassional hard start?

    I Dont want these mechanics to start putting hand where it isn’t necessary…

    What advise will you give me on repair?

    Expert Answer……………..
    Your Problem is solved brother. The code P0335 means (Faulty Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor) is the cause of the occasional hard start. Change the Crankshaft Sensor and the P0725 code will clear by itself.

    Because a (Faulty Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor) causes a communication error between the Engine Control Module (ECM) and Transmission Control Module (TCM). The P0725 Codes is triggered when Transmission Control Module (TCM) does not receive the engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)

    I have a jaguar x type 2002 model with “gearbox fault” display on the dashboard. Can you help out?

    Expert Answer….
    Yes… we can fix it. Where is your location?

  • January 31, 2018 at 4:13 pm


    Thank you very much Sir.
    What are their prices? And the address of your auto workshop?

    Expert Answer…….

    No problem sir, I cant give you the prices until i see the one in your car. Also, i will even verify if its the sensors are really bad. Because sometimes, it may even be the wires connecting the sensors may cut inside or have other problems, and the scanning machine will only see that the sensor is not working.

  • January 31, 2018 at 4:11 pm

    “First of all, you have to scan the car. Is it showing a check engine? Is it bring out black smoke(Unburnt fuel)?
    Have you checked your oxygen sensors, airflow sensor?”


    After scanning we found it the following codes;
    1. P0141 o2 sensor heater circut malfunction bank sensor 2.

    2. P0341 camshaft position sensor circut range/perfomance bank 1 or single sensor.
    There is little white smoke at start up early morning but it will clear up after some minutes and also black substance when i touch the tip of exhaust pipe.

    Expert Answer….

    Cool, you’ve got the solution. Change the heated sensor, change the camshaft sensor, change your airflow sensor. airflow sensor is what is causing the black smoke most times. After doing this, rescan the car and check to confirm.

    Note: when changing the oxygen sensor, make sure you replace it with the same type of your car, and also test it before you pay them to make sure its working. Out of 10 oxygen sensors you will buy from the market, it may be 2 that will be working fine. Tell them to test it with Ohms on the meter for you. Many people don’t know this. so that you wont still go and buy a bad oxygen sensor in the market.

    My advise.
