If you have a smart phone download an app called ' torque '. I got mine for $4.99. Then buy a bluetooth OBD2 scan tool to plug into your computor.. Elm makes these. Usually around 12 to 15 bucks. Your phone will give you the error codes and take you to a website that will explain them. Fix it with the right parts yourself and save money.

SOURCE: 2000 chevy venture doesnt start

Not the IAC, or MAF, or 02

Does the Van Crank over?
Have you checked the IGN Relays? 1,2,and 3?
How did the Battery test out?
Anything below 11.9v battery is dead.
So I suggest that you do not throw any more parts and check the battery again.

Crank sensor has to be bad,or the ignition module.Remove the ignition module and have it checked at the parts store.If it checks bad,replace it,if it checks good replace the cranksensor.The cam sensor,cranksesor,and the control module control injector pulse,and coil spark.I would point more to the ignition module.But I have known the crankshaft sensor to do this also.I hope this was helpful,if so,let us know,thanks,and good luck.

1997 Chevy Silverado will not start replaced fuel pump also replaced spider injectors. Call shut down while driving


Does the engine have spark to the spark plugs? Is there 12 volts to the coil and is the coil being triggered on the ground side? Check to see if the coil is sending spark to the distributor. Several more things to check that will not let the truck start. Check these and get back with me and I will help you more if needed. Good luck.

My 2001 Tahoe ran fine going to work. When I got off work, I started it up and it ran for 20 seconds then shut off. started again and started to go home. It jerked twice then ran 100 yards then shut off....


Check the crank position sensor. Also it could be as simple as a bad coil or coil wire. It definitely sounds electrical if you hear fuel pump priming. Also check distributor cap and rotor. Hope this helps

98 Chevy 1500 Running down road dies Has fuel. Has spark.


If it has spark to the plugs, normal compression, and fuel, it should start. So assuming it does have normal compression, I would want to know if it will try to start by spraying carb cleaner into the throttle body to substitute the injector spray. One of the three components is missing.
Another thing to check is the distributor cap and rotor to make sure spark is reaching all of the plugs at the right time.

My 97 tahoe the rpm's start going funny engine startes running like its missing popping and ******* and die's it has new fuel pump ,sending unit ,rotor,cap.cam censor ,fuel relay everytime i c


I'm assuming you replaced the fuel filter when you did the pump.
You'll have to try to figure out if you are loosing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
Its possible something is failing inside the distributor among other things.
I'm also assuming you have checked the computer for trouble codes.

1993 mercury village engine was running was driving down road it shut down, check engine light was on , friend said to change fuel pump and still no spark at engine plugs, what should i try next? is there...


Fuel pumps don't have anything to do with spark. Have the codes read. My guess you lost the crank sensor, ignition module, or coil. Check your fuses also.

Car turns over great getting fuel and spark but wont start


Spark without fuel = just spark. :) Are you getting fuel movement? You could have a bad/clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump - could be a few things. Check to make sure you're getting fuel.

Driving down the road and all of a sudden the van starts jerking like its having trouble getting gas and then when i turn into a parking spot or onto another road the cars dies and i have no power steering


It could be either a bad fuel system or a bad spark system....
Fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injectors, fuel regulator, spark plugs, ignition coil, distributor cap, etc....
