Charlie. You have replaced the ECM on your van?.
Kedwin,, Your problem is, the computer on that 3.3 L.
Need to be programed with the VIN nember of your car.
The Antitheft System will disable the injectors due a incorrect VIN, Bucause the body computer is not recieve the correct pasword between 5 seconds after start up.
YOU have 2 options. 1 get a ALOHA Smith. some of they have the computer required to program ECMs.

The other option is: Get a new ECM from the dealer, They will program if ask for that.

NOTE:::::: Other way is . Put the body control module with the computer from the same car.

OK... I hope this work for yours.
If NOT letme know I can look for more information.
Thank you.

"when the fuel pump kicks....it makes a very short duration sound....you can hear it....but in seconds it will be gone......as gasoline has made its way to the engine.........

if you cant hear any noise from the fuel pump......it could be that the fuel pump realy is bad........if you happen to change the relay....and it still does not work.....then it is the fuel pump. that is fried.......

about the water.....i am not shure......unless there was water in the gasoline itself....or somebody put water in there in purpose....

hope this helps...

2012 maxima will start, but won't idle and dies after a few seconds. Has been running perfectly until this morning.


Check the fuel lines and unions for small air leaks (smell of fuel) also check fuel filters for partial blockages P.S CHECK THE FUEL GAUGE FIRST.

93 toyota pickup 4x4 it will stay running after I turn it on to start it up, it starts up then after a few seconds it kills


if I'm reading this right...
... the engine starts and dies within a few seconds.
... you jumpered the fuel pump test connector and it will keep running.
... you smell fuel after trying to re-start when it dies.

Disconnect the plug to the cold start injector. Even if you have an issue with the engine running then dying after a few seconds after doing this, if you don't smell fuel after disconnecting the cold start injector and try to restart it, the cold start time injector time switch may be failing.

Buy a can of starting fluid and have someone start the engine then spray short bursts of the fluid around all the intake fittings. If spraying the fluid in any particular area keeps the engine running, I'd start looking for leaks around that area.


It does sound like an AFM or COR issue considering it dies after a few seconds, but the fuel smell when trying to restart the engine may be a separate issue that needs corrected / isolated first.it will keep running.

I have a 2001 rodeo V6 standard. The check engine code is for mulitple missfires. Sometimes when you stop the rpm go down to zero and acts like it wants to die. Have tried taking off the coil packs one at...


whats your fuel pressure when this happens are there any O2 sensor codes also? or fuel trim codes?
if low is pump at fault? or is fuel filter blocked?
check fuel pressure regulator on rear of inlet manifold left side of car- pull off vacuum hose going to inlet manifold while engine is running to make sure fuel isnt leaking out of hose, might have to take of protecting bracket dont usually have to though.
what is your fuel quality like?(no water or contamination/stale fuel)
how many KM's what are plugs like or plug gaps?
and check is it burning oil? fouled plugs?

there was a problem with earth crimp in engine harness on left bank front section near injector that needs to be cleaned and soldred to repair or replace with new engine harness, its for O2 sensors, TPS, canister purge solenoid and IAC motor injectos also wires break in same harness on the front left head(rocker cover/cam box cover) while its running wiggle and pull on loom if engine starts to run rough or stumbles its probably wiring related.

dont disconnect coils wiring looms while engine running it can damage driver circuits in engine ECU!!!

so some things to look over hey.

Okay I have a 2000 isuzu rodeo v6 4wd and I have been having problems with it since i've had it.I started having slight engine bog and then the car wouldn't even run i replaced the intake manifold gasket...


IT'S CALLED MISFIRE, that get a tuneup yet>?
lacking cash for shop
or cash for tools
how can one fix a misfiring engine,?
no scan tool either.
be impossible.
now DTC errors code stated by you.
there are 50 causes of misfire, at least, i have a list but nah.....
new spark plugs.
see those 3 coil packs, put on new HV wires there
1 by 1, DO NOT MIX THE WIRES UP.
new air filter and fuel filter,? a tuneup, do that first.
is compression at spec. 150 psi or 80? if at 80 the cam belt slipped
that belt is a 60,000 service item are you skipping belt changes.

EGR DTC errors
P1404
1406
1491
1498
which one. each has a different cause. guessing will fail.
fuel pressure
sure.
but no PSI stated
or at key on, idle and at WOT for 1 second. (gunned)
pump pressure is 3 tests NOT one, infact its 6 tests, buy the book.
or more if you do an injector leak down test.

one question really
can you force engine to have full power WOT>
wide open throttle up a hill,? yes..no (right foot aggressive)???
pretend helper cant drive car
tell all things the engine does good./bad/ugly
all things tells use whats up.
hot engine cold, parked and driving flat ground and hills.
all things,
or its going to be expensive guessing.

Car starts runs for ten or fifteen minutes then just dies


Check fuel pressure when it dies? Or remove air intake hose at throttle body inlet, open throttle slightly,(with key off) and spray wd-40 inside throttle body for a second or 2, then try to start. If it starts for a second or 2 then quits, you have a fuel delivery problem, such as bad fuel pump or plugged fuel filter.
