Do a tuneup on it (new plugs, wires, cap and rotor, if they have them. This is the best place to start because this thing will go bad. If it does not help ask me then

2010 Honda Odessey Handicap Van won't start after sitting for a couple of days. Have a new battery best from Sears. Mileage is @7K miles. and we don't use the van to often.


Not clear what is happening but you say it does not run a lot of miles. I do know even with a new battery the van must run every once in a while to keep the battery charged up. Batteries run down just sitting and has to run at least a number of miles to charge up. I suggest you purchase a little battery charger that you can leave hooked up to the battery all the time and when you want to use the van just pull the plug out of your extension cord. Then plug it back in when you are back home. That way you know the battery is charged fresh all the time. You might want to have the battery checked for power just to make sure the battery is operating properly. Any place that sells batteries should do this for free.

Why would an 2005 Town and country van with a 3.8 engine start and sound/run good for a couple of seconds and then starts missing real bad.


Crankshaft position sensor maybe , throttle position sensor , coolant temp. sensor etc.... It could be a lot of thing's . Instead of buying this part an that part ,take it an have it diagnosed . To a good ASE certified repair shop . Unless you like buying unneeded parts .

Truck fires really well but wont start, seems like no fuel


Please define "fire power". Is this just the power from the battery swinging the engine, or did you check if there is a healthy spark on the plug wires? If an engine dies without warning, the chances are very good it is the crank angle sensor in which case there will not be any spark on the wires even though the starter will swing the engine quite lustily without starting.

Why won't my 2010 Ford Econoline start despite all lights/radio etc come on?


It takes a lot more power to start a motor than it does to run the accessories.. First thing to check is for loose or corroded battery cables.. next check the output on the alternator to see if it is charging the battery.

2003 ford taurus - replaced fuel filter & fuel pump - runs great then starts chugging, RPM's drop, pull over, turn it off and wait about 1 or two minutes, then runs great, only in the heat of...


is the car missing when driving? 2000 and on has coil over plug's there are no wires. Is the check engine light on? if so go to an Auto Zone parts store or one that will scan the car computer for free and get the codes out to pin point the problem. Sounds like the cars miss firing. it could be more than one coil and or plug going bad. Did you replace any coil packs? Bad coil packs are 90% of all miss fires on todays cars and trucks.
