    I will do as you suggest; are there other possible problems?

    I took my truck to autozone, they hooked it up to the diagnostic machine and it did not return any codes. However, the check engine light is still on. Could there be another problem beside that it might be the fuel pump?

Best thing to do is hook up a OBD II (on board diag) scan tool and get the error codes stored in your Dodge Ram computer. Then look at the back of a Haynes repair manual and match the code with the list of codes this repair book provides. This will save you time and money. You can use this scan tool for free at your local auto parts store. I would say that your fuel pump is going out but before you go and change the fuel pump, find out the code.

I HAVE A 2004 AZTEK AND HAVE VIBRATION WHEN PRESSING GAS PEDAL. WHAT CAUSES THIS?


you don't say where the noise is. that is important to give a clue where the issue is. when stopping on the brakes 3 things happen. you press the pedal and the abs pump starts pumping fluid. the second is the brake capilers start pushing on the rotors to slow the car. the rotors are attached to the wheels and that stops the car. so if the rotors are warped you will feel a vibration in the steering wheel when stepping on the brakes. if its your foot feeling the pump working that is normal for abs pumping. you should feel it and holding the pedal will keep it working and stop you from skidding if everything is working correctly

My 1990 s10 vibrates when in park and giving gas .. And also. When driving but stoped on idle or letting go on the gas pedal it doesn't vibrate .. I have replaced flywheel and torque converter and still...


Sounds like a bad spark plug, spark plug wire. Probably the spark plug wire. They usually act that way when load is applied. It may misfire under light load and not at idle. Try plugs and wires.

My 2003 buick lesabre will start to vibrate when you get up t 45 mph and will get worse if you give it gas but will stop vibrating if you let off the gas


Sounds like a motor mount or trans mount, maybe a axle shaft worn out.To check the motor mount and trans mount start the car raise the hood have someone stand by the side of the front end put the car in drive with your foot on the brake use the other foot and press the gas pedal a little bit and see if the motor raises up on one side or the other.

Crank no start ,got fuel got spark, when trying to start spark plugs get wet ,changed plug pinched fuel line shut try srarting flud wont start???


You pinched the fuel line????
If you crank for too long to start the car, the engine will "flood", this is why the plug was wet. It had too much gas and wouldn't start.
Pull out ALL plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
HOLD your gas pedal to the floor and crank.
This will stop gas from entering the engine.
you need to get that extra gas out beofre it will start.
If you have so much gas in there you can do damage to your engine!!
Now after a few crnaking attempts with your foot to the floor, take your foot of the gas pedal and try to start it again.
But remember if it doesn't start in 3 tries, you need to do the pedal to the floor once or twice to remove the excess gas.
When you crank the car to start it sprays gas into the engine, even if it won't start. So it very easy to "flood" the engine, and then you'll have a hard time to get it going!

96 GC Orvis-Severe vibration in Idle.


Before you go changing the idle motor, clean the throttle body out with a spray cleaner and make sure you get into the idle speed motor orifice. Spray the cleaner into the throttle body with the engine off, do'nt be afraid to use it all then let it sit awhile. When you try to start the car it might not want to start, just keep your foot all the way down on the gas pedal and as it starts and clears up just release the pedal slowly. If the car smokes out of the exhaust, thats normal. Hope this works.
