I sprayed engine cleaner on engine, and i thought that i carfully rinsed of the engine. The car started and ran fine for the next two days. NOW the car will not start. The engine turns over fine. But i don't think i have any spark, because engine won't fire.Did i get somthing wet? and if so what, and how do i fix it?

Ok if the car ran after it got wet then its not the problem engines can get wet and be fine sure thats not the problem they burn of the water anyway check the plugs and see if fowled out and check wires for cracks if older wires when you got them wet they might have got hot then cold then cracked from age check and see if they need replaced hope this helps

1989 dodge ram pick up losing compression will start and idle fine but when in gear it has no power


You have an intake vacuum leak. The vacuum is sucking in water and causing the truck to run rough. It may get better when the truck is hot because this sometimes causes the plastic or gaskets to swell closing up the leak. To confirm ... when it's cold you can start the truck and spray some brake cleaner or quick start around the sides of the intake and you will see the engine will rev up a little.
Hope this helps.

90k , timing belt new @ 80k worked fine sprayed engine with water to clean dust started and ran fine nest day started but then idled up to 4k and wouldn't idle down drove it about 5 miles and got off...


I have ran into this problem at my shop. There are 3 things that could be bad. Idle air control valve, pcv valve or the vacum hose for the pcv valve. Vicually inspect the pcv vale hoses. If you dont see a tear, spray carb cleaner around the hose, if engine idle changes there is a vacum leak in hose some where. If pcv valve and hose are ok than its your idle air control valve. You can attempt to remove part and clean it but this is only a temporary fix, Good luck.

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?

Sounds like the fuel pump got air in the system. You may have to bleed out the air. Then it will run. Check the fuel tank for fuel first.
