    I put a new battery in last week. I can hear the fuel pump whine. the plugs get wet and foul out. was wondering if it is the coil or plugs wires. I'm not sure how I change the coil.

There are three relays all grouped together on the firewall on the passengers side. All three are related to your situated. We can eliminate one of them because you stated that the fuel pump is operating fine. Now that leaves the relay for the ECM(engine control module) this tells the injectors, cold start and run, when and how much fuel to supply and also controls ignition timing and spark advance. The third controls the AC compressor. Now I've got to remind you that I started working on fuel injection systems the day they started failing here in the US around 1972.These were such vehicles as Mercedes, Saab and Volvo. I've worked on every configuration, TBI, MPI, diesel etc.etc. I may on occasion cross one fact with another or mispronounce certain aspect of a system however, These three injectors are where you want to concentrate your efforts. With some finnesse you can swap the harnesses from one to another. If your car runs fine and your AC suddenly does not, then you know that that relay is faulty. Do this until you get your answer. Best of luck my friend, Dana

SOURCE: my 98 monte carlo has problems starting

If you have checked your battery voltage and it is registering 12.4 volts then the battery should be good enough to start the engine. However, if the battery is 4 to 5 years old, it may be getting "tired".
I would recommend removing the battery cables from the battery, cleaning the terminals and posts, reconnecting the cables making certain they are tightened securly.
Start there and let me know.
If this is not a "maintance free" battery, check the water level under the caps. The level should be just above the plates.
Let me know how it turns out and we can go from there.
Regards,

I would verify fuel pressure is in spec.On the back of the motor on the drivers side you will find a shrader valve(kinda like a valve stem on a tire)Its just alittle larger.You can buy a fuel pressure gauge at your local parts house and they can give you the spec as well.If its not in spec the pump is in the gas tank.

A couple of things can cause this. First, make sure that your fuel filter is clean. next make sure that the fuel pump is putting out adequate pressure. I'd also check timing to make sure it has not been set too far retarded. A bad ignition wire or spark plug can also give you similar symptoms but generally you would feel a slight miss at all times but sometimes unless "loaded" it's not as obvious as you would think it should be.
Obviously I'm not there to drive it but the items I've listed are where and in what order I'd begin to check.good luck!!

98 Chevy Tahoe runs great, but from time to time will not turn over, I leave it for the day and it starts fine. Have changed fuel pump, distributor and cap, starter, battery, plugs and wires. No idea why...


When this happens check for power on the s terminal At the starter while someone holds the key in the crank position. I suspect a faulty ignition switch.

Background: '98 intrepid (170k) has been running fine over last 4 months...no problems. It has been kept in the garage through the winter when not used. For the past 5 days it has been kept outside in...


You don't say what engine is in it (2.7 or a 3.2) but you need to check to see if it is getting spark at the plugs-it may be the crank sensor, weak links in Chryslers of this era. pull a plug just to be certain it is getting gas, but I'd guess it is a crank sensor.

Runs good til it gets hot, then backfires and sputters


Have the catalitic converter check sounds like it may be clogged. This will cause it to choke off exhaust when it gets hot
