Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad


I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.

When the car is off i hear a ticking nosie by the the fuel tank. my guess is the fuel pump. i have a riugh ideal and los of power


well the fuel pump does not run when the key switch is OFF, however the ticking noise you are hearing would most likely be the HOT muffler after driving for awhile the exhaust heats up and expands then when the engine is shut off it starts cooling and shrinking and will tick and ping like crazy. as far as the rough idol and power loss it could be a number of things! is there any check engine lights on??

2002 chevy impala has loss of power. will not go


I would look into the catalytic converter too. I just went through this same symptoms. The engine will sputter and run rough. Drive a few miles at night and see if the front exhaust pipe, right behind the radiator, is glowing. That keyed me in. There is a special service to fix certain models for 01 and 02 which is sort of a recall but not exactly. The dealer just fixed it for free. The chevy customer service number is 1-800-630-2438, they can check and see if you Vin number is on the recall. Your local dealer may not know about it so call the number first and make sure you have the Vin, at least the last 8 of it, when you call.
