So many possibilities and you need to do some narrowing and less parts replacement. Check fuel pressure AND see if the pressure drops off. The pressure shouldn't drop off when you shut the engine off. Are there any codes or engine lights on? I just had a PT come in and the cel bulb had been disable. After reading the code I could fix the problem. If the plugs are swimming you will have a code. If only one plug then maybe not.

YOU'RE GONNA HATE THIS BUT IT DOES SOUND LIKE A FUEL ISSUE. HOWEVER HERE'S THE CATCH.....THE FURL FILTER IS IN THE GAS TANK CONNECTED TO THE FUEL PUMP. YOU HAVE TO DROP THE TANK OR TAKE THE BED OFF TO GET TO IT. AND YOU CAN ONLY GET THE NEW FILTER AT THE DEALER. THE LOCAL PARTS STORE DOESN'T CARRY THESE. BUT I'M NOT SURE ABOUT NAPA, THEY MIGHT. YOU MIGHT ALSO WANT TO CHECK FOR A VAC. LEAK AROUND THE THROTTLE BODY. LASTLY WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID ANYTHING TO THE TRANS.? MIGHT WANT TO LOOK INTO THAT.

turn the key to the on position a see if you can here a buzzing sound around the fuel tank,if you don't hear a sound then. (be very careful while doing this) with the key off take a fuel line coming from the tank loose,make sure its pointed away from you and turn the key to the on position,see if any gas comes out,if not then your fuel pump is probably bad.

Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

Find your firewall electrical junction block (where all the wires enter the cabin on the passenger side) and with a zip tie pull up the wire bundle so it does not ride on the upper tie rods and, fasten the zip tie to anything that is solid in the engine compartment and, let me know what happens

You can manually test the egr valve by pushing up from underneath it and seeing if the spring loaded valve moves and re seats itself. If no, it's bad.

its time to stop wasting money guessing and verify if parts are good/ bad. ck fuel pressure, and check the tps (Throttle Position Sensor) , see if it runs better with the EGR valve disconnected. If it does, replace it Use only AC DELCO parts they will need number off old EGR valve usually starts with 17------. NOT from ottozone or others.

How can i tell if my ignition is going bad i can crank it over but as soon as i start to drive it shuts it self off


First, make sure all your ignition components test out good; ignition coil, spark plugs, plug wires, power transformer, and even your alternator and battery.

Next, check your fuel system; fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, and even your fuel injectors. Many times a clogged fuel filter can cause idling and hesitation problems. Also check for any restricted air passages starting from your air filter, all the way to your throttle body and EGR valve.ry checking the tps sensor (throtle positioning sensor). if the tps sensor is not working right when the engine warms up the tps sensor will not allow the fuel pump to pump as much as it needs to keep the engine running. The reason it only happens when the engine warms up is because the throttle is chocked when the engine is cold so it does not take as much gas to run it.
