After driving my car for 20 minutes my car dies. I wait about 5 or 10 minutes and it starts right up.

According to engine analyst system it is getting too hot or low on oil, check these levels, if electronic ignition there should be a ignition 'IGNITER' box on side of distributor it has a white soft compound/heatsink behind it sticking it to distrubutor it is not making correct contact with the distributor causing ignition problems.

Check the main wiring harness at the fire wall bulk head connector for corrosion. All power enters cab here. Use dielectric grease on the connector.

Ecm will not communicate on the OBD11 connection to scan for codes

Hi Juanatijerin, Make sure that your vehicle has the sixteen pin connector and that it is OBD2 compliant. It could be fitted with the sixteen pin connector but compliant to OBD1. Check the ECU fuse. If that is okay check the power feed to the unit and the earth connections. Regards John

U1064 code & can't check the codes on a scanner. engine starts & dies. when it was running the abs light & brake lights were on & theft & service lights were on.

Sounds like a blown fuse to one of the computers, either the ECM (engine control computer) or the BCM (body control computer). The ECM fuse should be under the hood and the BCM fuse in the cabin. The U1064 means a loss of communication on the data line between computers (64 usually is the BCM). If the computers can't communicate they will shut down the engine and set trouble codes. The other issue could be a faulty ignition switch not allowing power to a computer (but not common for cavaliers or sunfires). If fuses are good, chances are you have a faulty computer somewhere in the data line, shorting out communication.

95 jimmy with 4.3 v-6 running too rich. I put it on the scanner and the code advised that it was running too rich. what could this be? When the car is idleling it is very irregular and it also backfires...

If you have the fuel pressure regulator and spider setup ,on your vehicle, that is a common problem, after a few years of service. To get to that ,you need to remove the intake manifold. There are pics and info on web, about the system,as well as blogs. May be other issues, but the leaking spider check valves,elude people, because you don't see it or expect it to be hidden

P1689 code. Hard starting 2001 Dodge diesel. Fuel pressure before start 10 psi runs at 8 psi drive at 6 psi unless peddle fully down and over 3000 rpm 3 psi

P1689 - No communication between ECM & Injection Pump Module. This is why it's a hard start and the peddle isn't acting like it should. There's a problem where the (Computer) ECM, isn't making contact with the Injection Pump module. So the computer doesn't know what the pump is doing or sending. Could be a cut in the, corrosion, etc.. So many things it could be, but this is why your truck is acting stunned.

Gear slipping between 2nd and 3rd

most shifting probs on the late model vehicles are caused by the shift solenoids or the vehicle speed sensors. look at that first, then figure out when you last had the trans fluid changed and the filter replaced, and the bands adjusted.

1995 cavalier z24,quad 4,dies at random moments.

Have someone else see if their scanner will communicate, if not, this is a sure sign that the ECM has gone bad and will cause intermittent stalling. Normally I would recommend changing the crank sensor for this problem and it still may be the cause if you want to try it first, but it sure sounds like a bad ECM.
