Mcdevito75 here, Timeing for the injectors is from your cars computer, your trouble could be a fuel p[ump relay. Haver the shop run a scan on your computer, and have them check out the injectors. Sometimes you can"t avoild a tow. Sorry.

What if the car is stuck in limp mode and it loses power?

if it won`t start call a tow truck to take it to a shop. if you don`t want to spend the money for a tow you won`t want to spend the money to repair the car anyways.

Can this car be towed with a car dolly? will the rear wheels 'freewheel', or do they need to be disengaged somehow?

most cars can be towed short distances(around 25-30 miles without damage in an emergency..but if the car is towed across country and it is all wheel drive, you need to put the entire car on a flatbed trailer..u-haul rents them..and they require a frame hitch to pull it..usually a stout truck or you can also rent one of their trucks to pull the trailer..

Electrical issue

Does the vehicle start an run ? If it does ,the brain as you call it is working fine . The check engine light has nothing to do with the PCM /ECM sensing problems .You probably should take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

Clutch will not engage

Newer cars have a clutch-pedal switch that has to be pressed to allow the car to start. Even if the clutch won't disengage, push the pedal to activate the switch, which lets the starter crank the engine when you turn the key. Hang on, and you're off. An advantage to driving without a clutch is if the clutch fail, you still can drive without a clutch so you won't need to call a tow truck.

starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

Check your fuel tank, fuel pipe and hoses might have a leaky somewhere.. else your injection pump has a leaky internal high presure pump.

I have a 97 crown vic with police receptor chip. My car starts ok, if its the first time of the day. If i go somewhere, as soon as i get into car, it won't start. sometimes, if i wait for a few hrs, i...

Hello, This is a tough problem to find when there are no Diagnostics. I suspect the problem is due to a term called "Heat Sink"

What this term means is that the engine compartment is getting hotter when the engine is just shut off, than when it is running. When the Tow truck moved your car, wind passed by while the Tow truck moved your vehicle. This helped cool it off regardless of when the car was towed.

A lot of times the heat shields on the Catalytic converters are rusted off. In a pursuit vehicle, they could have been knocked off. This means someone needs to look under your car to see what is missing.

The electric components like the Ignition module, coil, Relays, and fuel lines can be overheating.

Try opening your hood when you park your car at home and then go out shortly afterwards and try starting the car. If it helps, you need to find the component that is overheating and replace any missing heat shields.

I hope my solution is very helpful. You can also get FREE scans at Autozne, Advance, and Oreillys autoparts when you get a Code light.

My emergency brake cable broke with the brake engaged. how do i disengage it so i can get to a garage?

If the emergency brake cable broke, then the brake should disengage by itself, unless there is rust in the braking system preventing it from doing so.

An engaged brake needs tension on the cable to continue to hold the vehicle still.

You could have it towed by a flat bed that slowly draws the car up onto its flat bed, even if the brakes or park was engaged. Allow the tow truck operator to worry about this problem.

Good luck on getting your vehicle to the garage.

My 2002 pontic grand am will turn over from the solenoid but want start is there a realy thats stopping it from starting

All fuel injection vehicles have a motion sensitive fuel cut off. It shuts the fuel off in the event of a crash. Hitting a large bump will sometimes cut the fuel pump off. The reset is usually a red button about as big around as your pinky finger. Your owners manual will tell you where it is. Look up "fuel cut off" it is sometimes under the hood, sometimes in the back. I once saw a tow truck go 100 miles into the booneys to get a Subaru that ran over a big rock. Tow truck driver pushed the reset and followed the Suby back to town. No it wasn't me. I dispatched the truck.
