If your fluid levesl are OK, usually turns out to be a broken rev band. You can check if the band is broke by dropping the pan and taking the low rev servo out which is the 4 bolts that are the square cover inside the pan. With the servo out you can take a screwdriver or punch and push it thru the hole and see if the band will spring back or if the band just pushes closed or if you can even catch the strut at all. Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer. Thank you for using FixYa.
I had the same problem. My car sat for a few days and when i went to start it i heard an extremely loud pop (kind of like a backfire). After that it would start and sound fine, but die 2 seconds later. Thank god my bf is a mechanic he knew instantly that the pcv valve hose that connects to the intake manifold unplugged itself. He plugged it back in and it runs fine now. I didnt however get a check engine light, but i only tried to start it twice before he fixed it because i was scared it jumped time.
if the left one is working, you do not have a fuse or switch problem. 99 times out of a hundred a padiddle (one bad headlight) means you have a ground problem, unless of course the bulb is bad. take a close look at the wiring on the nonworking headlight assembly. there is short wire coming from it which connects to vehicle ground. find that wire, disaasemble the connection, clean it well, reconnect it back to ground and spray some sealer on it.
in ohio the first person to sight a padiddle is entitled to punch another occupant of the car, kind of like a slug bug, but at night.
Due to the age of the vehicle or milage on the engine, it more than likely has a worn timing chain that needs replacement. Have you changed any of the ignition wires lately? They may be on incorrectly or are old with too much resistance. Use an ohms meter to check this. Good luck!
First disconnect and remove the battery. Then, remove gas cap to release pressure. Than remove fuel lines and drain gas into suitable container. Next, loosen the bolts (you can use a tranny jack or have someone else help hold tank and lower it down. Now you will want to use a BRASS punch. (do NOT use metal or it will cause a spark) Use brass punch and hammer and loosen nut on tank counter-clockwise to loosen sending unit. Once nut is loose, pull out sending unit and unplug the wire harness.
Looks like it's sucking air soemwhere. Try using a separate container to **** the diesel and see if there is any difference. Otherwise try leaving the car idling for 10-15 mins as sometimes air trapped in the pump can be very hard to bleed.
