Check the fuel pump when you turn the key forward but dont crank it and see if you hear the fuel pump engaging. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: My 2004 dodge durango runs hot when sitting in

First thing I would check is the cooling fan. While running in your driveway allow the car to warm sufficently. The fan should kick on. If it isnt running check the fuse located on the driver side kick panel first. There is also a relay under the hood inside a black box on the right hand hand if facing the engine.

As far as the coolant goes. make sure the thermostat is open when you fill with coolant. If it isnt you only fill the reservoir and then when the thermostat opens it draws down water through the engine making it low again. Same deal, just allow the car to warm up with the radiator cap off. You should see the water swirling if the thermostat is open. SHoudl open around 180 to 190 dpending on which yo9u have installed. Be very careful not to open the cap under pressure. Safe thing to do is squueze the top radiator hot to see if its rigid or soft. If it rigid (tight) dont dare open the radiator cap. If you can aqueeze it easily go and and half turn the cap to allow the pressure to vent just to be safe then remove it al the way. Be caeful because sometimes water will sure out. Be sure to replace the cap prior to shutting the engine off or else if will surge water out whn the engine stops. Good luck and be safe.

SOURCE: overheating 2003 dodge durango. What could be the problem??

When engine running, ensure no engine combustion gas bubbles in coolant resevoir (if so, the head gasket is blown).

Check cooling fans are operating ok (when required when car warms up), if not check
1) fuse,
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.

Replace thermostat.
When re-filling cooling system, bleed off any airlock as necessary.

Check for collapsing (soft) coolant hose on suction side of waterpump when engine revs above idle.

Engine problems?

Head gasket. White smoke is always a sign of water getting into engine cylinders. And if not the gasket there could be a crack in cylinder wall allowing coolant into chamber! Water does not burn!

Engine will run for sh**.

Why chevy blazer won t start after it rains ?

Its a possibility, that you can have a bad coil pack. start the vehicle, and spray the coils with a mist of water, from a spray bottle. If bad you see a spark. The coil pack is cracked somewhere.Meaning it was not water tight. It should be. Good-Day!

My 98 dodge stratus won't startbut it will turn

You need to check if its got air, fuel, and spark. spray some throttle body cleaner in the throttle body and quickly try to start it. if it fires up then your not getting fuel so you may need a fuel pump and filter. If it does nothing check for spark, if you have no spark then you need to check the coils and crank position sensor.

I have a 94 s10 tbi it runs fine when its completely dry out but loses all power when it rains or snows what is my problem

it is a spark issue.
im pretty sure these have a coil pack ignition.

when a coil pack gets old it may develop a crack and anytime moisture gets in the coil it kills the spark and the engine doesnt burn fuel like it should.

the way to check for a cracked coil is to start the engine and get a spray bottle full of water and spray the coils with a light mist of water. the engine should die down or quit completely if a coil is cracked. you will notice no difference if the coils are fine and the water will not damage anything.

if you have a cracked coilpack then it will need to be replaced accordingly.

2000 Dodge Durango (5.9) i replaced map sensor for an on going problem because of no start problem.When i tried to start it,it almost started .It seems to be flooding it self out.Whatelse can i look at !!

Try the coolant temp sensor, it could be telling the computer that the vehicle is cold all the time, therefor giving it more gas (they don't always throw a code either).

What causes sputtering in the engine of a dodge neon, does it need a tune-up, cause I keep up on the engine maintenance?

those neons are known for the coil pack on top of the valve cover to get cracked, if that is the case it will arc from the spark plug wires!!!
when it gets dark go out under the hood with a spray bottle full of water and while the engine is running spray a little water all around the coil pack and where the spark plug wires connect to the coil pack!
then while you are doing this, watch for any sparking/arcing you'll know it when you see it it will look like electricity kinda like a mini lightning bolt!!!
