SOURCE: 2003 galant wont start

Your timing belt might have busted. Mine did that in November of 2007.... I had to replace 2 of the 4 cylinders, along with the timing belt and housing. Total cost was a little over $1700.00

You may have to replace the fuel filter, the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump.

First I would check the fuel pressure and also check for leaks. If there are no leaks and the pressure is fine than your fuel injectors are probably clogged or you may have an ignition problem or even a compression problem.

If you don't have good pressure and there are no leaks I would first replace the fuel filter or the fuel pressure regulator. If problem still exists I would then check and replace the fuel pump.

If you need any help in any one of these procedures just post it and I will give you step by step instructions.

SOURCE: 2000 dondge durango Code 201 and 455

A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
-A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
-A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
-Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
-Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
-Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
-Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary

As for P0201, the causes could be any of the following:
-Bad injector. This is usually the cause of this code but doesn't rule out the possibility of one of the other causes
-Open in the wiring to the injector
-Short in the wiring to the injector
-Bad PCM

Possible Solutions:

  1. First, using a DVOM check the resistance of the injector. If it isn't within specs, then replace the injector.
  2. Check for voltage at the fuel injector connector. It should have 10 volts or more.
  3. Visually check the connector for damage or broken wires.
  4. Visually check the injector for damage.
  5. If you have access to an injector tester, activate the injector and see if it operates. If the injector operates, then you likely have either an open in the wiring, or a blocked injector. If you do not have access to a tester, swap the injector with another one and see if the code changes. If the code changes, then change the injector.
  6. At the PCM, remove the driver wire from the PCM connector and Ground the wire. (Make sure you have the correct wire. If you're not sure, do not attempt) The injector should activate
  7. Replace the injector

Will defective vaccum hoses on front axle effect the way the engine runs on a 2000 kia sportage?


Vacuum leaks work like this. A small hose breaks, you don't notice a engine problem, but the gas mileage goes down a bit. As the leak progresses, mileage goes down more. A large leak you notice the engine runs rough at idle. Combine this with clogged air, fuel filters and clogged catalytic converters and it will start killing the engine at stops and eventually go down the road. But to answer your question, No the line going to the diff, wont affect the engine performance. Because the PCM will compensate for the small leak. More fuel.

Rough idle and shakes


Have you used fuel system cleaner in a while? Sometimes just dirty injectors can cause this. Also have you changed the air filter in the last year? Be sure to spray clean the throttle body when taking apart...These routine services can help wonders...as well as mileage:) Hope this helps. I like STP super concentrated in the black bottle...

My 2000 cavalier, 2.2L runs real smooth while driving on a road or street, but when stopped at a street light at idol it seems to run rough and the tach fluctuates. also seems to be getting poor fuel...


I would recommend getting a tune up first and see if that changes how it runs.Also change your fuel filter and air filter.If it doesn't change then it could be a vacuum hose that's off or broke.Also Buy some Techron fuel injector cleaner and dump it in your tank this will help clean your injectors.Since there is no mention of a check engine light being on then this should help.

Rough start, smell gas


For the RPM's jumping up and down i would replace the throttle position sensor. If it smells like bad gas or rotten eggs these are signs that the cat. converter is going bad. For the poor gas mileage replace the fuel filter.

HI.i HAVE A MITSUBISHI eCLIPSE 2000. i HAVE CHANGE A TIMEBELT A 5 MONTHS AGO.LAST NIGHT I RAN OUT GAS... TODAY WHEN I STOP AT STOP SIGN THE CAR STALL'S ALL THE TIME... WHAT YOU THINK COULD BE THE...


When the car ran out of gas it may have tried to run on no fuel and retuned it self to attemp it. You may have to dissconnect the battery so the car can retune itself. When starting the car after reconnecting the battery. hold the engine speed higher than idle and turn every thing on. continue to run the car at the fast idle for a minute still holding the idleup a little put the car in drive holding to break and slowly let it idel down this will relearn the idle and should fix the problem

2000 Eclipse wont start, fuel in plugs


I hate to be the one to tell you this but if there is fuel,oil,water getting into your plugs than you have bad rings. the vehicle will not start because it is not getting enough compression to do so. If you love the car and would like it to run again it will cost about $1000.00 to have the rings done if not more. But since there is water than fuel getting into your plugs than it is a defenent sign that your rings are bad.
