I had the same issue and it turned out to be grounding issues. by that I mean ALL of my grounds were rusted/loose/ too small wire/ ect.

To curb this issue i had to locate multiple grounding wires on the engine and that little wire running from the ground terminal to the front cross member was heating up because so much current draw through it- after locating grounding wires, Sanding the connections and using petroleum jelly AND replacing the ground terminal and Positive terminal the issue cleared up.

The only reason i knew it was ground issues on my car was finding that one chassis ground wire heating up from just running my car.

Try cleaning the EGR valve first

Potential Symptoms

Symptoms of a P0118 could include:

* Very poor fuel economy
* A no start condition
* Vehicle may start, but run very poorly, blowing black smoke, running very rough and misfiring
* Illumination of MIL
EGR valve

Usually a fault in the control circuit, will leave no noticeable symptoms other than the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination. However, if the EGR control solenoid
is stuck open due to debris, etc. the code may be accompanied by misfire under acceleration, rough idle, or engine dying altogether.

Sounds like the ignition cylinder is jambed, if you remove the covers and put the key in, you might be able to turn it with pliers, just turn it to the accessories position, then there is a small metal clip that pushes in, push it in and pull the lock cylinder out of place, get a new one from the dealer and reverse to install. If it's above you, your dealer can help, usually about an hours labour or so.
Hope that helps, Good luck

WHEN STARTING THE CAR, IF IT DOESNT START THE FIRST CATCH THEN IT TAKES FOREVER TO START


You may need someone to help with this, or not.Turn off the radio and any accessory that will interfere with hearing the fuel pump. Turn the key to the on position,the fuel pump should turn on for a couple of seconds to build fuel pressure, and then the pump will shut off. Turn key off. Turn the key on, the pump will do the turn on and off again. Do this about 5 times. Do not turn to the start position until after the 5 times of building the fuel pressure up in the lines. After the 5th time, turn the key to start the vehicle. If the vehicle starts, then you're loosing fuel pressure when it's not running. Most cars have about 60 psi of fuel pressure. You'll need a fuel pressure meter to check it.

Fuel pumps not working. Have changed eec relay, fuel pump relay, checked fuse and inercia switch not triped. Any suggestions?


When you turn the key to "ON', or "START" the fuel pump should run just enough to pressurize the system, and shut off. When engine is actually started, the pump will run continuously. Sounds like the pump relay is not getting the signal to run the pump from the key being turned to "on" or "start". Also, some vehicles can sense fuel pressure so there may be an issue with that sensor as well. In other words it thinks there is proper pressure or maybe too much pressure and wont let the pump run. I am curious to know what you find.

MY 1994 INTERPID STALLS WHILE IN MOTION AND THE CRUISE CONTROL LIGHT COMES ON. I RECYCLE THE KEY AND IT STARTS BACK UP...........


Hi!!
If you pay special attention, not only the Cruise Control light comes on, almost all of th warning lights that come on when you first turn the key to ON/RUN come on when the vehicle stalls. Based on my experience with Intrepids, I would check the Fuel Pump, I believe is quitting, it is going to take longer for the vehicle to start up (15-20min) until the pump cools off.and one day it will quit for good.
AutoZone, Checkers or similar auto parts stores lend Fuel Pressure Testers, ask the attendant for the rated pressure on your particular vehicle. The pressure is measured, after the tester is installed, by turning the Ignition Key to the ON/RUN position (do not start the engine). You may want to test several times to confirm pressure. Here is a diagram of how the tester is installed.

Car starts but it turns off after a few seconds...help


A vehicle needs 3 things to run. Fuel, Spark, and Air. So first off, if it is starting at all, the spark must be okay. So a couple things to check...First, check your air filter, make sure the vehicle is getting proper air flow. But mainly...This sounds like it could be a fuel problem. What might be happening, is when you turn your key to the ON position, your fuel pump activates, creating fuel pressure for the moment, but when you start your vehicle, the pressure just isn't enough to keep it running. Check the fuel pressure. It could be some other things also, if this does not help, let me know, and we can go farther into details. :)

Turn ignition to run not start,count to 5,turn off key. Repeat this three times. Try to start vehicle. If its starts you are done. If not you will need to repeat turn ignition on count to 5 then turn off, 3 more times On the fourth time leave key in the run position for 10 minutes. Then turn key off & start vehicle.

Trouble Starting


sound like either leaking injector or failing fuel pump/check valve

cannot diagnose with a scan tool because you need to run a power balance test

however, being that the vehicle is 8 years old, I'd shoot for the pump first.

to confirm leak down you will need a fuel pressure tester installed before you shut the vehicle down, then wait a few hours and check fuel pressure before turning the key on. fuel pressure should be withing a few psi of what it was when you parked the vehicle

My 2002 LS is hard to start after it sit awhile I change the fuel filter and the spark plugs and the coils on each plug but it still hard to start could it be my fuel pump is losing pressure when it sit...


it is very possible and i can tell you a way to help you see if that is the issue. after your car has sit a while (as long as it usually takes before it acts up) jump in the vehicle and turn the key to the postion just before the vehicle begins to turn over when all the dash lights come on. when the key is put in this position the fuel pump runs for a few seconds and then stops until vehicle is cranked, allow the pump to run for 5 seconds then turn the key back off. then return the key to the "run" postion i mentioned before and wait a few seconds then try to start it. if it fires right up you have allowed the vehicle to build fuel pressure before you started it, indicating you have a fuel pressure issue and you are most likely looking at a weak fuel pump.

2003 S-10 4.3 crew cab, is hard to start only in


although your fuel pump is running it might not have the correct pressure so what you need to do is run a fuel pressure test by connecting a pressure gage at the valve on top of the engine take the black screw cap and connect the fuel gage turn the key w/out starting the vehicle and read the pressure it hould drop only about 1 psi but no more than that if it drops more than that you need to buy a fuel pump.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
