Can an overheating transmission affect the computer box? iam thinking that maybe the computer could have been affected after the transmission overheated

If you tranny is sending an error signal to computer it can prevent car from starting. Kinda like when you have the auto stick to choose Drive, Reverse, etc in the Reverse position car win't start unless in Drive. Take to a place that can read the code from the computer and it'll likely have an answer to your non-start. Hopefully you won't be spending $2000 for a transmission job!
Why change fuel pump? Was there no pressure on fuel rail? Was it not making its pump sound when key in acces. position? Did you check fuel filter if it indeed is a fuel related issue? Clues are awaiting your inspection such as rusted fuel tank, water in line, etc. by checking. But I'd want to know WHY you chose to replace pump since it has nothing to do with tranny.
IF a transmission related issue and you haven't gotten it to a place to read computer you might want to check if your vehicle has a separate transmission cooler up with radiator (usu. in front of radiator behind grill). See if fluid is flowing thru the cooler. If it is plugged then the transmission can have fluid but its overheated because its in a closed loop essentially and if it hasn't warped your metal trans. parts the overheated trans. fluid might send a stop signal to computer so won't start. Open T-valve and see if trans.fluid is in trans. cooler (again IF your vehicle has one, not all do but things meant to tow usu. do) and if so examine fluid and connections.

Jeep Cherokee stopped and leaked water and will not start

water, is it clear or green or to be more accurate.
is the water on the ground (its on ground right?) same color
as the engine coolant.????????
my guess is you overheated engine. (never drive leaking or overheating or unlimited engine damage can happen)

or it lost water and overheated.
1: check all fuses.
2: is the CEL lamp glowing key on, if not , it will not start, (lamp good)

btw2: make sure coolant is 50% Antifreeze at all times. or worse will happen.

My 2001 chevy blazer v6 auto transmission broke this morning. First i heard a sound like a band snapped and it started slipping, then it happened 2 more times. Now it sounds like it goes from 1st to drive....

Normally,the dipstick is between the engine and the firewall in back and labeled Trans or transmission fluid.However,some makes and models have been made so that the only way to check it is by a dealer or a shop.Why,I have no idea.That is the birdbrain decision someone made who obviously isn't consumer friendly,at least in my opinion.If you do find the dipstick,the proper way to check it is to let the engine warm up to operating temperature,car on a flat,level surface,pull out the dipstick and wipe it off.Don't bother reading the first dip.Dip maybe 3-5 times to ensure accuracy.I always do with an automatic anyhow because it is very expensixe to fix and you want to make sure it's good.Ever since I blew a transmission and found out the difference in repair prices,I switched to manual transmissions.It does sound like something within the transmission anyhow.If it is unrepairable and needs rebuilding or replacing,go with replacing.It may be a few hundred dollars more but I have heard many issues about the durability of rebuilt ones.With a new one,although the warranty is usually pretty limited(1-2 years),it is there,whereas a rebuilt one does not have anything,perhaps 30 days at most,if anything.Good luck!

While driving car stops moveing ,but engine is still running . Can turn car off ,start again and runs down road like it never had a probem, till it happens again maybe 3 weeks later

I'm assuming you have the F4-EAT Electonically controlled auto transmission. In that case, you have a problem in the TCM circuit. And since it's a intermitant problem, it could be difficult to find. I think I would look to the wiring,before examining the TCM. Start at the transmission, and work back to the the transmission control module. If this all appears ok, work further towards the power source and particularly check the grounding points of the engine, the module and any other grounding points. Make sure these points are clean and tight and not corroded.

2001 honda ex-Car overheated and doesnt start anymore!

The car overheated and something caused the overheating. Bad thermostat, low coolant level due to a leak or busted radiator hose, inoperative cooling fan, or a bad water pump. Lots of things can cause an overheating condition and I am not really sure that any blame can or should be assessed to anyone regarding what caused the overheating....something caused it and I would be hesitant to blame the driver. I doubt that the person did anything devious like drain the coolant out. However, poor judgement was used in continuing to drive the vehicle after it overheated. This can cause major problems like a blown head gasket or even a completely blown engine. Maybe the lady panicked or was unaware of the damage that it could cause to keep driving. I suspect that it wasn't something malicious (she probably feels bad enough, already), but just a simple error in judgement. I would probably give her the benefit of the doubt and explain (calmly), the mistake that she made and why it was a mistake. She didn't cause the original problem, she just handled it badly. I would check the condition of the vehicle out and go from there. What's done is done.
Start by trying to find out what caused the overheating and if it caused any permanent engine damage. Some of the things that I mentioned earlier would be a good start, or you could have a certified auto tech take a look at it. It was really nice of you to lend the use of your car to someone. I am really sorry for the trouble you are having and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

2004 ford taurus. Its not overheating but there

Did you recently have a transmission fixed?
If so it sound like the drive plate bolts were not applied with Loctite.
Maybe a oil viscosity problem if not a transmission job.

Unusally pressing too hard on accelerator to get car to move

Clean the air intake filter for the engine, replace the spark plugs.

Have you washed the engine lately. Or has the engine been wet.

If so the spark plug holes may have water in them.

Check the air hoses, battery should be at least 10.5v....

Most likely not expensive...
Just make sure you change the oil at least every 4,000 miles
