SOURCE: 318 starts but wont stay running blows black smoke

The older chrysler products have a ballast resister on the firewall that is used for dropping the voltage to the ignition coil. During a start procedure, while the key is turned all the way in start position 12 volts bypass the resistor forcing a high output of coil voltage. When you release the key to the run position 12 volts goes ito the resistor & a lower voltage of around 6-7 volts comes out, & goes to the coil.
What happens, is the resistor breaks inside and no voltage is coming out the resistor. Thus only a start condition exist with no run.

SOURCE: my intrepid runs good but the engine lite stays on

Use a Auto Scanner tool,fallow step by step reading process,take note witch code number "show" as defective,possible sensor fail, after replaces erase code using your Auto Scanner.Do it the same if another code number come out.

Unless you have a code checker with a reset switch, the easiest way to reset the light is just to remove the negative battery terminal for several minutes. That will usually do it.

Also, you don't actually need a code checker to pull the codes. With the engine shut off, you can quickly turn the key back and forth twice between the OFF and RUN positions. On the third switch from off to run leave it in the run position. The engine light will flash one or more two-digit codes. For example, if the light blinks twice, then pauses, then blinks three more times that's error code 2-3.

SOURCE: Why won't my truck stay running when I'm not

Try cleaning your throttle body. Over time on high mileage vehicles, the throttle body butterfly valve will gunk up with sludge, and dirt. This will prevent air from entering the intake manifold while the engine is idling, causing low idle/stalling. A can of throttle body/carb cleaner will do the job. First, remove the intake tube to get to the butterfly valve. Spray a small amount of throttle body cleaner directly into the intake, and wipe any excess fluid with a cloth. Also, inspect your air filter. I hope this helps

SOURCE: fuel delivery error 0148 losing

P0148 Fuel Delivery Error, this can be a clogged fuel filter or a weak fuel pump, now if you happen to have a diesel it could be the lift pump a dealer would replace that along with a Fuel Control Actuator to clear the code

time for replacement of or severe cleaning with fuelinjection cleaner..also if diesel, add cold start to the fuel system..check and replace oil filter type fuel filter since jelling of fuel may be a cold start issue..crack open an injector line and see if injector pump is pushing fuel really well..and see if air cleaner needs replaced blackened element is not good..good luck..

2004 chevy 2500 hd deisel, wont start, canged fuel filter about 3 months ago, started today and ran for about 10 seconds then shut off. Haven t been able to start it since??


2 items that will put you back on the road. The glow plug controller When you turn the key on do you hear it. Its on the left rear of the engine above the rocker cover to the left of the turbo charger the glow plus is a assistant to aid in starting, There are two type of controller its either a rely or a solid state, Cycle the key it should come on for 2 seconds. cycle the key again. then start it,if it start get a glow plug control.now if it doesnt start are you willing to use either(its called instant start) use the one for diesel. did it start and stay running. if it stays running glow plug control is needed. Now if it didnt stay running and shuts right of youll need to replace the cam sensor, the cam sensor is located in the right side of timing cover behind the water pump pulley. They are plaque with damage. inspect the cam sensor and the connector for damages, If the camsensor rattles its defective. This cam sensor are failing left and right oh by the way carry an extra one the are common failures

Just bought a used 1989 Delta 88 Royale Brougham. It worked fine but when I got it home and plugged it in (its winter) it won't start now. It turns over but won't stay running


is this a diesel? surely not. the plug in heats the oil in the oil pan to make the engine start easily in wintertime. you may have a faulty plugin, or if someones installed a deisel motor, you most likely have bad glow plugs,hmmm if gas, i suggest you check for faulty oildipsick heater or bad or weak fuel filter,fuel pump, it really makes a difference whether it's deisel or gas. please repost if this does'nt help, thank you for choosing fixya.com

I have a 1994 2.8ltr Diesel (4M40 Mtr), Delica, that conks out


try changing all the heater plugs there are warn out by now,,if it realy dont like starting up on cold days do what i do,,, give it twice the heat up time,,,,,
turn on the kye wate till the heater light go's out then quikly switch it off and turn it back on for a re-heat before trying to start it up,,,also try changing the glow plug heater relay,, it should hold the glow plug heaters on for about 30 seconds after the light has gone off even if the engen has started and is running
but i bet its not doing this? giving twice the heat takes less out the battery than cranking it over and your not wearing out the starter as well?
doing this to my old girl gets her going every time!!!!!
