505 is idle air control motor circut. Check to make sure that control is clean and functioning correctly then trace back wiring to find problem if cleaning does not help.You can locate test values in nearly any half decent manuals.

While driving 2001 grand Jeep cherokee laredo it started sputtering and stopped as if out of gas( it was not) and the check engine light came on. I'm thinking fuel filter or pump?

When they sputter it is mostly the fuel pump. One way to check is hit the bottom of the tank in the center. The vibration will jar the pump and most times they will start pumping again. This is not a fix, you still have to replace the pump. This is just an easy way to make sure your changing the right part.

With 220,000 miles i thought it jumped time but half way home i pull up to redlight and just sitting at idle and engine dies out like no fuel. so i get it started just to go about 150 yards and it starts...

If you have spark and the fuel line is flowing gas it still may not have enough pressure 35-40 PSI is normal and has to be tested with a gaquge. The idea the the timing jumped is a good one and a comression test can find it as the compression wiil be low on all cyclinders. 150 PSI is normal good ones as high as 180 PSI and lower than 100 they flat won't run. Adding a little gas to the air inlet as it's being cranked with the key makes it fire up and run breifly tells you it didn't jump time but has an injection problem or low fuel pressure. Make sure that your not out of gas and that the gas that;s init is gas not something else.223873880.jpgThe filter for the fuel looks like this and you might find it has water or **** in it. sugar even. 24734041.jpgBeing the timing set is gears and a chain unless it's been making noise for awhile they are quite reliable and seldom fail without making noise for many thousands of miles. The tensioner can braek making the chain very loose and noisy but you have to pop the clutch or somthing nasty to make them jump. A timing light connected to the number one spark plug and crank to see the mark may find it way off and the compression low so these are the parts pluse the chain that you'll need.1008659640.jpg

2001 Ford Windstar van seems to skip when you push

It may be due to plugs, fuel filter, fuel pump, or mass airflow sensor. Is your check engine light on?

A noise has started coming from under my glove box. thi stops when i press in the air circulaion button and immediately after letting go of the circulation button it stats again?? any ideas

Could be something like a leaf stuck in the air system. I would pull out the cabin filter( under the hood, near the windshield on the passenger side) with a phillips screwdriver removed screw and pull out black plastic housing...removed cabin filter, and look inside area for any debrie. You will see a fan inside. Replace that filter every 15,000 or every year.

My truck skips & rumbles when I press the gas pedal...I also hear a banging metal noise the harder I accelerate;especially going up hills...Please help

Is it throwing a code (is the check engine light on??) This is a hard one to diagnos without hearing and feeling the problem.

You might have some critical mechanical issues. If you care about your truck, I recommend not driving, or even starting the engine. Have it towed to a good, honest mechanic (dealer maybe??) and have them diagnose the problem. Sorry to say, but the worst case problem is not pretty.

Then again, it could just be pinging from bad gas...of which I would add two bottles of octane booster and some water-remover to the gas tank.

2001 Volvo S60 2.4T starting problem

This car won't start unless the gear is in the P position. Some times the sensor that tells the computer that the gear is in the P position doesn't make a good contact and the car won't start. Move the gear backwards and forwards until it makes a good contact and the car will start again.

Have you changed the fuel filter? I know it sounds weird but a plugged filter will make a truck use more gas. The computer tries to compensate for less fuel by commanding the injectors to open longer. Also a plugged filter will cause excess back pressure on the fuel pump making it loud.. Good Luck.
