Western australia is like the rest of the world , when we lose keys we pay a dealer to make new keys .you might need to have title and vin number to have them do it . the laws there might be different than ours here in USA . i did it once but i knew where i lost them so the next day with a magnet i retraced my trip and fished them up from the river bottom where i got dumped from the boat

SOURCE: i hav a 2001 olds alero 2.4l runs fine but after

First you need to get the trouble code from compute,my wild guess would be mass air flow sensor.Take sensor off and clean it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner put it back on then reset computer.Make sure you get the codes out of the computer first.

SOURCE: Car runs fine for bout 20 min. when shut off it

All "crank, no start" conditions are approached in the same way. Every engine requires certain functions to be able to run. Some of these functions rely on specific components to work and some components are part of more than one function so it is important to see the whole picture to be able to conclude anything about what may have failed. Also, these functions can ONLY be tested during the failure. Any other time and they will simply test good because the problem isn't present at the moment.
If you approach this in any other way, you are merely guessing and that only serves to replace unnecessary parts and wastes money.

Every engine requires spark, fuel and compression to run. That's what we have to look for.

These are the basics that need to be tested and will give us the info required to isolate a cause.

1) Test for spark at the plug end of the wire using a spark tester. If none found, check for power supply on the + terminal of the coil with the key on.

2) Test for injector pulse using a small bulb called a noid light. If none found, check for power supply at one side of the injector with the key on.

3) Use a fuel pressure gauge to test for correct fuel pressure, also noticing if the pressure holds when key is shut off.

4) If all of these things check good, then you would need to do a complete compression test.

Once you have determined which of these functions has dropped out,
you will know which system is having the problem.

Iv lost all my keys for my 1998 focus what can i do

If your car key had a chip in it then call a locksmith that is able to reprogram a new key to the antitheft system. There is an chip inside the key that the system uses to enable the engine to start. AutoZone sells new lock cylinders w/two keys for like $80 but you'll still need to program the keys with a scanner that has antitheft capabilities. The dealers charges like $475 for a lock cylinder with one key.

Lost all keys to 2001 Toyota Avalon. Dealer says I must buy a new computer in order to have new keys set for this vehicle. Is there any other cheaper solution?

the best thing i can suggest is find a locksmith who specializes in making car keys. something similar happened to my brother and my friend. my friend lost his keys, to an older acura, the locksmith, he got a code off of the glove compartment, and cut the key based on that code. my brother, has a 2001 audi a4(similar key system), he broke his key, he went to the dealer and they were charging him 400 dollars for a new key. so he got an uncut key from ebay for 15 dollars, took it to the same locksmith, cut the key based on the broken one, and only charged him 20 dollars. 35 compared to 400, huge difference. i know its different situations but i think a good locksmith will be able to make the key for you without charging you all that extra stuff. if you live in the cerritos, california area, i can tell you the exact location of the lock smith. if not, i will gladly help you in your search for one, or any other assitance you may need. i put a link to an ebay key that should be for your car, uncut of course. i hope this helps, and goodluck.

How much is a new key for a 2001 volkswagen newbettle?

That really depends on what you mean by a n"new" key. If you need a copy, that isnt near as much as if you lost the key to it. The price really depends on where you live and how many locksmiths are in your area. The more locksmiths the more competitive they tend to be. I am sorry that i cannot pin point a price for you. I would say that for a total new key (if you lost yours) anywhere from 75-125.00

I lost my ignition key

A locksmith can come and pull your ignition switch and make a key for it, if you have AAA
I think they pick up part of the cost.
