2000 chevy silverado v6 vortec engine, died driving, changed fuel pump, plugs wires, etc. and still wont start. ever heard of that

1st, check to see if the fuel pump runs for 3 seconds when you turn the key to run (not start). If it doesn't run, then check the fuel pump fuse & relay in fuse box under hood, if OK, (spray starting fluid in the intake to see if engine fires at all), if no fire then look towards the ignition as the problem. There are 5 things need to start an engine: 1. fuel (delivered & pressure), 2. air, 3. spark (distributor/ignition module or pickup coil), 4. rotation & timing, 5. compression. any of these that are wrong or not there, the engine fails.

The service engine light means that there is a sensor that is bad or something is wrong. The only way to tell what sensor is bad is to get the diagnostics ran. You can do this at any Autozone. It is free. They will give you a printout of all of the codes that is making the service engine light come on. And what sensor that is causing this.

1999 ram v6 abs and brake light on, drove a block

Sounds like your alternator died. Check wiring, fuses and replace alternator as should test bad.  $80.00 at a scrap-yard should be a general price for used.
Back-yard mechanic should install for $20.00
Good luck.

Check engine light on

Lots of different minor things could cause the check engine light to come on , even something as simple as a loose gas cap.
Most mechanics can plug in a diagnostic tool that will read a code from your computer that will tell them what is causing the light to come on.
This should not be an expensive test.

1999 mercury cougar. won't start...cranks...battery ok.

V6 ? 4CYL? Have you verified SPARK? Did anyone check the "fuel pump inertia switch?" Its in the right front kick panel. If it was a "Anti-theft Issue" the light would be on or flashing.

Where is the rotore /cap located in a 1999 silverado 4.8

I believe those motors have a distributorless ignition system. Each cylinder has a coil mounted on top of the valve cover.

1996 Olds ciera, V6, Engine dies when put in drive

Try disconnecting the electrical connector at the transmission and see if it stall when you put it in gear. You will get a service engine light, but not to worry, it will go back out once you reconnect.
By disconnecting the wire connector we can tell if it is transmission related.
Good luck, let me know.
