I assume you have checked the oil for proper level? They cant be low or the thing wont start as oil is needed to fire the fuel injectors. Your gone to really have to have a scan tool that can read the oil pressure off the high presure pump. The thing will have to have about 700psi ICP pressure anything less and it will not start. You could still have a HI psi oil leak under one of the valve covers, or at the hi psi pump snap together fitting. If its big enough leak it can cause no start or symptom you are describing. Unfortunatly its complicated to find you need a scan tool, special test fitting so you can air check the hi psi oil system and listen for leaks, it can come from eithe valve cover area or under the hi psi pump.

If my trubo diesel 6.5 chevy if the timeing is off it wont stay runing if i fix the timeing well that make it idelthat was 1 of the code that came up its geting fuel u give it gas it well run u let of


Yes timing is everything with motors if the cylinder isn't firing at the right time all u are doing is filling the cylinder with raw fuel and dumping it into exhaust un burned it can eventually ruin you're catalytic converters also, get it professionally timed you're truck will run like a champ, unles u already caused damage.

1997 nissan serena diesel 2.0 van it starts and idles, may rev, then engine light comes on and it wont rev ?


If the "engine light" turn on, scanned the computer car in order to know what fault code is stored there, then could start directly with this issue.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

2004 Pontiac Montana -brand new battery, new alternator(not rebuilt). have to jump start and runs for a while then dies some times wont take charge. battery will die not running in a day. very intermi


First, you can't and shouldn't test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable while the engine is running. You run the risk of cooking the alternator and the computer. Thats how we used to test generators back in the last century.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ? Is the battery charge warning light on ?
There should be a fuseable link between the alternator and the battery that could keep the alternator from charging the battery.
The ignition module would have no effect on the charging system.

Starts and dies unless I rev it up then it will Idle


The battery might be low but I doubt it is causing the "no idle" problem.
You should have an idle air control valve that the computer uses to adjust idle speed. That valve could be faulty or dirty.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?
