I know this is going to sound stupid, but I've done it before, did you put he car in park? You might also want to try it in neutral also. If neither of these two tests work, you can try to jump across the solinoid on the fender well. Don't stand in front of the car, and make sure that the parking brake is set, just in case it starts and tries to run you down. If jumping across the two big posts cranks the motor, chances are either the solinoid or the electrical half of the ignition switch is bad.

98 escort runs like choke is sticking any ideas ?


Check to see if choke valve is stuck close, if it has one. Check throttle linkage for sticking. This car may have an idle control valve. It may be dirty of defective. If so, remove it, clean it, replace it. Diconnect the battery for 10 minutes, reconnect and start it up.

My 1993 dodge ram B250 wagon is showing signs of a bad fuel pump but mechanic says fuel pump is fine. Wants me to buy a new PCM (which we just did a month ago for a previous problem). The van was running...


one thing to look for is your gas gauge. if it doesnt read or your wagon constantly stops then i would go with the fuel pump. replace the pump and replace the fuel line any water in that line would be bad.

1999 Ford Taurus Wagon stays in 1st gear


Most Ford Taurus wagons have a transmission that generally goes first. that's the main reason. Just something to do with the way they are built. The only advice that I could offer is either replace the tranny or just not run the a/c. Usually it's just the motor working twice as hard running the a/c and that in turn puts the computer into the phase of lower gears for the transmission. there in being the problem.
