Question about 1993 Dodge Shadow
I just had the transmission replaced and left the salvage yard garage. i went about 15 miles, went to pull in and it cut off. if i pour gas in the carb it will start but only keep running as long as you keep patting the gas quick and short pats. the shade tree mechanic i have says it can only be the fuel pump which is $ 150.00 where i live. he has checked nothing else so far just says trust his knowledge. i am a female of course and on fixed income and have just spent over $ 700.00 for the transmission. is it possible they left something undone? they say it cranked and left the shop so not their problem . please help me !! what is a relay? where is it? about how much is it? what about a fuse? where is it ? about how much? any other wire connection i could possibly check? please if anyone has a suggestion -- i need a way to go ...
There are several things that can be checked...one of the first and easist is to aslo check for spark while cranking....if there is also no spark .the fuel pump is not the problem...a pikup plate in the distributor...a crank sensor ...a relay ...or a computer can be at fault. have your mechanic check for spark and let me know the results
