Sounds like you don't have a good ground at the battery. Take the clamps off of the battery and give them a good cleaning. Then, put some dielectric grease on the battery posts when you put the clamps back on.

1990 k1500 I from 4wd to 2wd the front axle stay's locked in. I have to take the actuator out wiggle the "pin" inside the differential to unlock it.


the pin may be locked in because of torque wind up from driving on hard surface in 4wd . Check power/ vacuum to actuator as well. Run on grass / mud/gravel/ ice surface as you try to unlock 4wd to allow the torque wind up to disappear.

1990 Volkswagon Jetta won't turn back on after long drive.


Then you have a start up problem and it reside with the cold start valve,The cold start valve operates even if the vehicle is warmed up,the cold start valve can be plugged up,or even have a bad connection,The cold start valve operates by a thermotime switch.This switch located on the near bottom of the radiator may have gone bad or disconnected,Here is the easy cost effective route, replace them both,it will cost more to trouble shoot it than just replace it.

1990 dodge dakota with a 3.9l well die while in motion but dosen't do it all the time


The key is to figure out if you're losing spark,fuel, or both.Next time it quits,see if if you smell raw fuel at the tailpipe.(this would mean ignition issue).If not,you may be losing the crank signal.If it happens while your moving,you may be able to recreate it sitting still.Try starting it up and wiggling connectors,wires,etc.Also try thumping sensors lightly to see if this will make it happen(use a high tech tool,like an old mop handle!).This is simply a way of attempting to make the condition occur like it would over a bump or rough surface.I figured out an intermittent miss on a 2.0 liter Turbo Grand Am by doing this(several techs at several dealers had replaced an insane amount of stuff trying to fix it,including our own shop foreman!).All of that for a broken injector wire!

1986 Toyota 4wd pickup: problem starting


in my experience alot of times what happens when ignition systems get hot from running for a period of time the ignition coil breaks down and weakens when old and worn out then let it cool down for awhile then starts right back up. so look into checking into the coil break down for loss of spark

I have a 92 GMC K1500 I drove approx. 2 miles to deliver a package truck was running fine. shut it off approx 10 min. later would not crank. pulled off air breather was not getting fuel. thought fuel pump...


It can still be the fuel pump.the pump could be getting hot and not working. If u let it set for awhile and cool down it will start. You need to do a fuel pressure test it should read between 40 and 50 psi. Let it run for awhile and see if the pressure drops. If so I would replace the pump

2001 Chevy Silverado will start up but cuts off after seconds


Could be either one of these. Or both. Check to see if you hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to ON. If you can't hear anything , the pump is bad . Or going bad if you don't hear it all the time when your key bis in the ON position.
