In 1998 they changed the ecm (Electric Control Module) format so you'll have to most likely find one at a junk yard or buy a new one for a 1997

1998 jaguar xj8l, it wont start, i can hear the fuelpump come on but also hear gas pouring back into the tank, is this normal or has my fuel line come loose?

Have verified the injectors are energized and if the ignition coils are firing the spark plugs. Do your rpm indicator show the engine is turning and sending a signal to the rpm gauge.

Fords have the inertia switch in the trunk like the Ford Escort, for instance. But, I think that GM doesn't have this feature, in general.

Does the car's engine turn over? If it does, then I would check for gas and spark, next.

Truck idles,but stalls when given gas

Sounds like it may be a fuelpump, the best way to know for sure is with a fuel gauge,as far as interchangeable pumps it depends on the motor size, and tank size, the 1995 1996 are interchangeable depending if its a returnless fuel system, as you go up it years there are diffrent fuel modules and diffrent tank sizes,

Check for a linkage problem, either under the floor console or down under.....There should be a manual at your local public library, Motors or Chilton's; or -
I always buy a Haynes manual at my local parts store for my particular make/model. Full of pics, the best, around 20 bucks

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
