Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad


I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.

Won't start but cranks has 300k miles. Check fuel pump working, replace glow plugs, checked fuses and relays, fuel pump won't come on but works hooked it direct to battery, wait to start light does not...


If you can't pull the codes from the pcm it has either died or lost it's ground assuming it has power. I would try to get a wiring diagram and check both the power and the ground for the computer itself, because it is what turns on the pump and the wait to start light.

2004 Toyota Camry keeps dying while driving but it starts right back up. Replaced fuel pump and air filter but it's still doing it. Someone said it may be the catallytic converter? Does that sound right?


You may have problem with your cooling system. Follow these simple steps to try to rectify the problem:

1. Write down the code of your radio.
2. Allow the engine to cool down. Disconnect the battery negative terminal.
3. Locate the ECT-engine coolant temperature sensor. It is located to the right of the engine head-cover, by the metal hook. The number two sensor with black wire connector. You will see the large coolant hose connecting to its body. That's the ECT.
4. Depress and pull out the wire plug.
5. Use a deep socket with wrench to remove the sensor.
6. Replace the ECT, reconnect the plug wire and the battery negative terminal.
7. Crank up the car again and test drive.

2001 Ford escort zx2 wants to die while idling


The check engine light indicates a problem. You need to have the codes read. Most parts stores do this for free. Write down the codes and ask them what they mean, and what u should do. You can come back here if u need more info.

CAR CUT OFF WHEN DRIVING


Have u checked for spark? U can pull a plug wire off, install a plug in the wire (saves u from taking a plug out), place plug on metal surface, crank engine while someone watches for a spark. If no spark check coil and ignitor (inside distributor). If u have spark check to see if u have gas making it to plugs. Crank engine over (no more than 10 seconds, give it a 10 second rest, try again for 10 sec. etc, ) After doing this for several minutes, pull a plug and check it--it should be wet from gas. If the plug is dry, u aren't getting gas (change fuel filter, check fuel pump). countrycurt0
