I have a 99 isuzu rodeo that made a loud popping noise, the brake light came on and the power steering stopped working.


popping , i cant hear it this far.
OKAY that mean the engine stalled,
when the tachometer shows 0
and the car dont go
and the charge lamp goes on on other warning lamps all gone on
that is and ENGINE STALL
and 99% are due to not getting a tunuep this decade.

Starts but wont move whats wrong


Auto or stick transmission.
cars that dont move are
bad tranny/clutch or weak engine.
until you tell what trans in car, we can not help.
does the dash hve a Tachometer RPM gauge.
good, does it go real high with right foot, over 3000 RPM?
yes, bad transclutch
no, it says about 2000 max .
yes:>
then its ice frozen brakes. or a weak engine
only you know the ice question, i can see you. or car. or weather there..

Car often difficult to start in cold weather


what engine? what tranny, A/t or M/T????? auto or stick?
NO CRANK, turns over means nothing (starter turns, or crank shaft turns????? over.........????)
it dont crank sometimes. is clear. no guessing. at all.
by starters can spin and engine not, its one more clear symptom.
eg; starter spins and tachometer is dead.?
my guess here. is the key line is dead

Car wants to start but dials will not move


cranks but does not start and stay running.
dials.??
My guess, is dials is tachometer, RPM, that is correct. all engines
that do not start, have 0 RPM.
there are 100s of steps , if unlucky. (burned engine valves?)
ill post 3 of them.
1: check all fuses. in both fuse boxes.
2: check spark.
3: get a 60k miles tuneup , as stated in the operators manual.

My 98 explorerr wont move in drive and kicks hard but will move in reverse and all of a sudden my fluid level is showing at least 2 quarts to much


hot engine,cold or both>?
quarts? who a quarts gauge,
don't feel bad we had RCH , in the military. (xrated)
wont move is always 1 of 2 things.
1: engine stalled or almost no horse power (torque)
2: tranny MALF!

find out which first.? #1 fact to know.
for sure slush pump trannys that is always and issue.
slips too much, or too little, not in any manual gear box.
we know instantly when power is low (engine) every time.

my guess is engine power is near zero.
is idle below normal (800 hot)?
or too fast? idle?
evidence we need that. to wax smarter.
here is your first test:
1; start car select drive,or L, and step on gas (right foot)
2: does car move, sure no. but does RPM look right on engine.?
when the tranny slips the RPM rise and car dont move.
there is no longer a 1 for 1 relation ship engine to wheels
this is slip or as tranny men call it FLARE.
if you have no tachometer, then all this is hopless.
never drive a A/T with no Tachometer.
no way to communicate facts. see?
i have one in my drawer here,just for this case.
a mech, can do this by ear and is impossible to put in to words.

Engine acted like it was going to stall, then tachometer(rpm) and speedometer jumped up high, gas gauge dropped to empty level though there was half tank of gas acted like it wasn't getting gas pumped gas...


Ignition or fuel problem probably . When you turn the key to start does the engine spin ? Crank no start or nothing happens NO CRANK - NO START ?
If the engine spins an does not start an run you need to test to see what's missing Spark or fuel . Pull a spark plug wire off a spark plug an stick a screw driver in the end an hold it near ground (metal) and have someone try to start the vehicle ! Is there spark ? Spray starting fluid into the engine , does it start then ?

Tachometer and speedometer don't work - they go to the bottom and don't move


If by the bottom you mean 0 then this might not work but I had a similiar problem with my tachometer. It was starting around 4 rpm (instead of 0) and would move up and beyond 7 when I would accelerate. Found a post saying to put the car in reverse, turn the engine off and then try and start the car 3 times (in reverse). Amazingly this worked perfectly and reset the tachomoter. Might try this for your problem.

How do u know if a crank sensor is bad on a 1994 dodge intrepid?


Check to see if you have any rpms on your tachometer in the car during engine crank. If you do sensor is probably fine but if your needle doesn't move at all sensor is bad. Your problem might be the same as mine at the coil pack/module connector. Four wire connector that was not getting a good connection. I got very lucky to have found this.
