Have you scanned the computer for codes. Might be a good start.

Also if you have an extended crank I would be curious to see what fuel pressure is at and if it holds fuel pressure. One thing you can check is to see if the fuel pressure regulator is leaking. It will be on the drivers front of the engine right behind the throttle body. Remove the vacuum line from the top and see if fuel comes out. If there is fuel coming out than the regulator is bad and needs to be replaced.

Sounds like it could be anything and everything and without my head under the bonnet i have no idea from afar so i can only suggest that you ask a local mechanic to have a look ,what you done was a service not a tune up as to me a tune up is like polishing the ports on the head ,skim the head to increase compression ,grind valves in fit a high lift cam and so on ,anyway best of luck with it But this age of vehicle i would not be surprised to find that the head gaskets are decomposing allowing the coolant to be drawn into the cylinders ,hence what you think is flooding is actually coolant so any white smoke at all or loss of water ?

    a tune-up on this side of the pond usually consists of replacing the plugs. on older vehicles the timing may be checked and adjusted. a major tune-up would include wires, cap, rotor and plugs if the vehicle is equipped with these items. The items you described would be performance enhancements and would not fall under our conception of "tune-up".

    Must save up some money and come for a visit one day but in all honesty its like going dead here at the moment as far as work is concerned as i mainly repair vehicles for the property owners and they are not coming out as often and their cars are just sitting in the road or drive to the house so iam not getting them to prepare and take for their yearly mechanical inspection .Even the locals are catching the bus to work as they cannot afford to repair their cars or insure them ,thats if they have any jobs to go to its that bad.The inspection station is alway without a queue when i do go their and normally you have to wait ages but now two cars in front of me is a big queue .The traffic office in alicante where you have to go to transfer ownership or register a new car is deserted to what it was and as for the car dealers sales well if and when i go to get specialist dealer only parts they are sitting at their desks playing spider solitaire ,and as for discounts on a new car well they are next to nothing so cheap its untrue

What parts do I change to tune up my 2008 dodge caliber


For a standard tune-up, the parts needed include an air filter, oil filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, and spark plug wires. You should also have oil, transmission fluid, coolant, windshield washer fluid, and brake fluid available. A tune-up consists of topping off or replacing fluids, changing spark plugs and spark plug wires, changing the fuel, oil, and air filters, and checking the pressures of the tires. More detailed tune-ups run a diagnostic test on the vehicle to check for any codes that indicate additional issues.

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.

What is needed for a tune up?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. For a tune up, you would need to change spark plugs, coils, distributor cap, coil pack, and wires. You would change the air filter and the fuel filter also. Change your pcv valve as well. You can also change all your fluids and filters, such as oil, coolant fluid, and transmission fluid.

I Need 2 Know What All I Need 2 Do For A Full Tune Up Cause I Just Bought THe Car From Somebody N I Want 2 Do A Full Tune Up


on a modern fuel injected car a tune up is pretty simple and i would consider a COMPLETE tune up as follows. 1: change the spark plugs and wires (make sure to properly gap the spark plugs and use some antisieze on the threads)
2: change the fuel filter
3; change the oil and filter
4: change the transmission filter and fluid
5; flush and re fill the cooling system with fresh antifreeze properly mixed with water
6: inflate the tires to the proper pressure listed on the tire decal located in the drivers door jamb area.
7: change the serpentine belt if it shows signs of cracking.
these steps should provide you with 3 things..1 a dependable, fuel efficient car 2: peace of mind knowing things are good under the hood and 3: many miles of driving.

What does a major tune up for a 2004 chevy impala consist of? What should be done and needs to be done?


New spark plugs, oil and oil filter, transmission flush and fill, fuel filter, air filter, coolant flush and fill, clean throttle body plate and bore, clean the MAF sensor, replace any loose or cracked vacuum lines, PCV valve, new air filter, new battery.

99% of the time all you should ever need for a tune up is new spark plugs, and a clean air filter and throttle body. But since your inquiry indicated "major" I gave it more critical thought.

Includes: Oil & oil filter, fuel filter, air filter, every 6 months if you drive it a lot.
At that time check spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, rotor. and replace if necessary.

Change trans fluid and filter every 2 years if you drive it a lot, other wise 3-4 years.

Switch to synthetic oil. It's worth the price.
Don't add any "additives". They shouldn't be necessary and may actually do more harm than good.

What part do i need for a massive tune up on a 2000 crown victory


Find out your engine size/type and buy the following: Engine belt, Spark Plugs, Spark plug wires, Oil filter, Min.of 6 qts oil, Air filter, maybe get a bottle of fuel injector cleaner, Fuel filter would be good(Get the ford A/C and Fuel line tool. usually $20), Maybe get a Lucas style transmission fluid additive, this should all cost $150-$200. and covers pretty much all the major areas of a tune-up.
