Did you check the crank sensor wire, it may be hitting the hot exhaust. does the wire going to fuel pump have a problem and is shorting out. ECM 1 ..... then there are 5 components that this fuse feeds
2- all injectors
4- electronic ignition control module
5- ignition coil - check for a bad wire in these areas. Hope this helps.
sounds like problem i had, the head needs to come off and needs reshimming, I bought one like this, £100 later , It was sorted, I got a bargain cos the van sales bloke didn't know what the problem was and just wanted rid. 50k later still going strong.
Try this: You will need 2 people - Have someone Spray Starting Fluid in the throttle then start the car and have someone spray the fluid continuously into the throttle. If the car continues to run you have a fuel problem, but if it stalls out, replace the coil pak. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
hi i have a 1997 chevy tahoe that starts but won't stay running i have changed fuel pump, fuel filter,relay ,spark plugs, and just changed rotor and dis. cap ready need some help to figure this out please.
Take vehicle right back to the used car lot. let them know they need to fix this problem right away. They just need to fix this be adament. this is a safety issue. The electronic fuel control may need to be adjusted
sounds to me like the fuel pump is bad, when it warms up it dies, try to check this by filling the tank and running a while, then run the van with a near empty tank and see how it does. A full tank of gas should keep the fuel pump cool as it is surrounded by the liquid. I had a similar problem. when my tank got to about a quarter full (3/4 empty) the van would shut off after a short distance, then after sitting for a while would start up again get me a little farther then shut off again. i ended up changiung the fuel pump cost me almost $300. if this simple test shows no results the you got electrical problems, check distributor, and surrounding cables. good luck. also check your fuses could be dirty!
