Fuel pump is working, plugs and wires changed and firing, everything seems to be working great. turns over but acts like its not getting fire or signal somewhere. thinking its the timing but did look up where it said the speed sensor would cause it not to crank. that's the only explanation I have for it just quitting without any warn ing.

I would check 2 things that would give you this issue. first and relatively easy to check would be the fuel pump relay. located out on the fender well driver side. they go bad and work sparattic causing an intermittent issue. second would be the throttle position sensor. they can get moisture build up and cause it to work weird. it should be located in the air box where the cable attaches to the throttle body small controller with a wire harness attached.

    my 05 neon did the same thing when i changed the spark plugs in it....i bought the $10 a piece plugs and come to find out they where the problem....i finally found a dodge guy who told me "those cars are meant to be cheap...get rid of those high $$ plugs and get the $1 copper plugs", so i did... never had that issue again. Hope this helps.....i also had issues with the car cutting out and stalling at times....this end up being a crank shaft sensor that often goes bad but easy fix....sensor bout $204

Did he physically check the timing? IE pulled the timing cover off? You need a good scan tool. See if it shows cam and crank sensors, and if they are in sync. If you are infact getting fuel and spark, it should run, but you are not getting one or the other.

The "wait to start" light is your glow plugs. You must have a loose connection to them or something not connecting. They come on almost everytime you start them, hot or cold.

Gas cap has no bearing,lol. Check the wiring under the battery tray. They're notorious for corroding through the wiring & cause a short to the ecm. This results in retarded timing & wierd stuff going on. Write back if you need more. Old car,lots to check.

Burns to much gas


my similar problem on 4 cyl jeep was cured by replacing both O2 sensors and coolant temp sensor (for second time). Also problem seemed to be related to putting too much oil on spector air filter and using carb cleaner which appeared to foul O2 sensors (a second time). replace sensors O2 sensors a 2nd time, stopped carb cleaner and now wipe off excess air filter oil and let dry in sun, and fuel economy went back up to 75-80+ miles per 1/4 tank of gas (vs. 55-60 miles per 1/4 tank of gas with fouled sensors).

Jeep wrangler is using too much gas


I have a 4cyl 97 jeep wrangler. My fuel economy went from 75-80 miles per 1/4 tank to 55-60 miles per 1/4 tank of gas. I traced this to a bad coolant temp sensor (replace twice), and fouled O2 sensors believed caused by my self by placing too much oil on spector air filter (now wipe off excess and let dry in sun), and using carb cleaner and or gas treatment (stopped using). fuel economy went back up to 75-85 miles per 1/4 tank. (also disruption of sensor input/output signals didn't help from battery sliding into computer wiring harness, which I cured by placing a 1" spacer on rear clamp to keep battery away from computer.)

Knocking sound under floor board while driving


Hi,
Check your tires for uneven wear. Sounds like they are out of balance and causing the shock or other suspension part to bounce/bump the under side of the car.

After getting gasoline, it increases wrong mileage with camry 2003


One tank of gas is not enough to compare mileage. Or are you saying the computer's readout of mpg estimate is showing less? Try a tank or two of premium and see if that helps. Keep track of gas mileage. Driving techniques have a lot to do with gas mileage, as does long trips vs. short trips, highway cruising vs. city driving. For best mileage, do regular maintenance and keep the car in top running condition-good spark plugs and clean filters and clean oil ! Attend to minor problems before they escalate.
If you want to check actual miles per gallon, start with a full tank. Write the odometer reading down, and go. Everytime you put gas in, write down the amount. When you are close to 1,000 miles from the time you started, go fill the tank and include that amount of gas to your previous list. Now add up all the gas used and divide it into the miles to get miles per gallon. (976 miles/31.8 gallons = 30.69 mpg ) . Only one tank will skew your numbers, might be off cause the tank was filled more to the top than the previous fill-up. About a thousand miles of driving will give you a very accurate figure of miles per gallon for your car.

My 1993 Safari Van is having trouble climbing hills. It seems to run well when on flat surface but all of a sudden it has had trouble going past miles per hour on the interstate and slows when I go up...


Sounds like a weak fuel pump.You will need to put an inline fuel gauge to check if you have good fuel pressure, if it's over 10 lbs, you have another problem, like a clogged fuel filter. You can find an inline fuel gauge at Kragen or Pep Boys.

Getting way less milage after fuel was replaced : HELP


First off,If the mechanic didn't have the pump in his hand when you met,Have the car towed to his shop right then and go into work early,He didn't put a new one in and have your car back in 2 hours (since the pump is located inside the fuel tank and the tank must be removed to get to it and)

Not saying it can't be done in 2 hours,if all the tools,parts,and ducks are in a row waiting for you.

Secondly,Additives are great until you over use them,mix and match them,Etc.....

To the search questions
#1 The filter should have been changed with the pump or at least at the same time.
#2 The fuel pressure should have been tested by the mechanic after installing the new pump.
#3 If you have a vacuum leak,the car will run rough or at a higher or lower idle.

Try a good tune up.The additives have probably fowled the plugs and may even destroyed the injector seals inside.
