Symtoms of a bad timimg chain/belt...but ran real


Problem is not solved but I did change the fuel filter, coil pack,ICM and have proper fuel pressure to the motor. Car starts but dies right away. I cant seem to find out if the fob on the key ring has something to do with stopping the motor. This fob says Radio Key by Secure Key with a number 35077 stamped on this thing.. Still trying to find out what this is and does it effect the cars ability to run

Replace instrument cluster


Is your speedometer or tachometer needle acting weird or giving wrong readings? If so it's probably the drive motors going bad, very common for sunfire instrument cluster and speedometers they all need replaced which isn't too hard if you have the parts and the equipment.

If not email me at fred@drspeedometer.com or visit my site at DrSpeedometer.com and I can fix it for you for a good price.

Geo tracker won't stay onas RPM drops in idle. Only pressing the gas keeps it on.


did you replace the fuel pump? if so was it an OEM or aftermarket pump, This happened to me on my van when I thought I would save a few dollars by using an aftermarket pump. I am not sure if your plenum has a test shrater valve. The plenum is what the injectors connect to that feed fuel to them. on this it normally has a valve like a bicycle valve this is where you connect a tester to check the fuel pressure. this is normally 6-8 psi on my car. yours maybe different. If the car is on this pressure should not drop.

My engines shakes really bad once it starts. it idles for a few mins then it shuts down. this is after it shut down on me on the freeway. all power went of and it just shut down on me. i think is the


I'm no bona-fide mechanic, but I've done a lot of work on cars. It may be you have an engine seriously out of timing. Or you might have loose or worn engine or transmission mounts. If the engine was shaking badly before shutting down, one result of that may be in the fuel system. If your car has a carbeurator, the shaking may have wreaked havoc on your float. If you have fuel injection, I'm not sure what to think.

Hopefully, you've gotten your precise answer before I even read your problem!

Help, My car won't start!!!!!


Check to see if the vacum hose is cracked or broken off the fuel pressure regulator. The other thing in my thought's is it could be a bad fuel pump or a cloged fuel filter. Start with the vacum hose and then the Fuel filter. Good luck

Won't start! really need advise!


If you are talking about not able to turn the key, then move the steering wheel back and forth while you are turn the key. That should unlock your steering column.
If you are talking about car not starting after you turn the ignition, then it could be the starter. If it's the starter, you would hear a clicking sound but no cranking
