Hi,

You need to have the car scanned for codes. There are a few possibilities here but the symptoms you describe are very typical of a faulty crankshaft sensor and thats what my money is on from the description.

However to avoid chasing after shadows and throwing money at various parts, it is important to have the cars computer scanned with diagnostic software. For example faulty coils or non electrical fuelling issues can throw up similar issues. A scan will identify the trouble codes stored in the cars computer and help confirm the diagnosis.

Autozone will do this for free or your local dealership will do it for a small charge and if it is confirmed as a simple sensor issue you can replace this yourself afterwards to save a few bucks.

Working diagnoses: Faulty Crankshaft sensor - obviously pending result of diagnostic scan.

Please do leave a vote for the solution. Many thanks.

RE LK 3504 (35 hp 4 wheel drive Tractor starts, runs 5=10 minutes under load, then slowly fades away running slower and slower until it stops. Restarts in 15 min, same result


Here is an idea.
It sort of sounds like there is a blockage after a while in the gas tank.
If there were sediment in the bottom of the gas tank, it would start and run fine sitting still.
However, when driving it, it would be a matter of a few minutes until the sloshing of the fuel would cause the sediment to mix in with the fuel, and clog the filter screen in the fuel tank.
When it stops, the sediment would settle back down, and in 15 - 20 minutes, it would be clear again.
God bless your efforts.

Chevy venture draining battery


The alternator is out. The ONLY time your vehicle uses battery power (while the engine is turning) is during start up. After that the alternator runs the car.

With the car running put a volt meter on the alternator. Red lead on the big nut on back side if alt. Black lead on the neg batt cable or a good body ground. Voltage should be around 14.5v DC.
Then still with engine running, red lead to batt postive, black lead to batt neg. Voltage should read the same. 14.5v DC
If not, the alt. Is bad

Hi my chevy venture has always engine check light whenever i start and somthing not right. Any idea to solve this problem? what are the symptons of this problem?


to reset engine warning light simply turn key on without starting slowly depress gas pedal to floor 3 times in about 5seconds wait 15sec then shut off key...this is in the owners manual under engine check warning light.but also may want to have someone plug a obd2 code reader into the plug under center of dash under steerind wheel....code readers cost around $100 at canadian tire or other such part stores..this reader will tell you what trouble codes if any are present in your vehicles computer.hope this helps..

Why does my radiator cooling fan remain on after I turn off the ignition?


The car has a computer that is linked to the engine. It is hard wired to it meaning the computer is always on. Upon shutting your engine off taking the keys in hand the computer is still on sensing the engines temperture. The coolant sensor will send power to the relay to keep the fans running untill cooled down enough. Then the sensor will cut off power to the relay shutting off the fans
