Check fuse 6 (15 amp) in charge circuit. Probably in the engine compartment relay box. Check the voltage at the battery with engine running. Should be at least 14 volts. If these are good, suspect a short in wiring.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5925550-dead_battery_troubleshooting . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

What happens when a fuel pump starts to go out?


You shouldn't have to pump the gas for a fuel injected vehicle to start. Where is the very loud noise coming from? If it's from the gas tank, then it very well could be the fuel pump beginning to fail. Sometimes you get no warning. You just get stranded. A mechanic would likely check your fuel pressure with a gauge.

2002 CHEVY VENTURE, ran through standing water, now it starts, sputters, and stalls.


I think you should head to a mechanic. Sounds like you got water in the fuel system. You could possibly resolve the issue by filling up with a fresh tank of gas, but that could also cause more problems if there is a lot of water in there already. I'd take it to a trusted mechanic.

Is the check engine light on ?
Fuel in the oil could be a faulty injector or the fuel pressure regulator.

DROP THE TANK & REMOVE ALL OF THE WATERED DOWN GAS FROM THE TANK.USE DRY GAS IN THE TANK AS WELL & A LOT OF FRESH GAS IN THE FUEL TANK & CLEAN UP THE FUEL SYSTEM ON THE TRUCK ALONG WITH REPLACING THE FUEL FILTER BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO BE FULL OF WATER FROM BEING FLOODED OUT.ALSO DRAIN THE OIL & REPLACE BOTH OIL FILTER & OIL TOO WHILE YOU'RE @ IT.CHECK OVER ALL OF YOUR ELECTRICAL WIRING & OTHER ITEMS THAT ARE ELECTRICAL AS WELL LIKE THE STARTER / ALTERNATOR / PLUG WIRES / SPARK PLUGS / YOUR TRUCK BATTERY AS WELL WILL NEED TO BE CHECKED & REPLACED IF HAS SHORTED OUT.EVEN YOUR EXHAUST SYSTEM WILL NEED TO BE CHECKED & REPLACED IF THERE IS WATER INSIDE IT AS WELL BECAUSE THAT TOO WOULD CAUSE IT STALL OUT IF THERE IS NO AIR FLOW FROM THE ENGINE TO THE TAIL PIPE.ALSO REPLACE THE AIR FILTER AS WELL IN CASE IT IS EITHER CLOGGED OF WATER LOGGED FROM BEING IN DEEP WATER.
REMEMBER IF ALL ELSE FAILS TO CORRECT IT YOU NEED TO GET IT TO A REPAIR SHOP FOR A COMPLETE CHECK OUT & ALSO TO GET IT FIXED RIGHT.

96 honda accord will not start battery works fine car will not turn over the past couple of days when i tried to start the car it would sputter.


Remove your alternator and starter and take them down to an auto parts store to be load tested. Use an amp meter to double check that your battery is reaching AT LEAST 12.5 volts. If it is getting anything less than 12v, such as 11.5 or 11 or 10.5 or anything under 12.5, then it too needs to be replaced.

If your alternator and/or alternator test to not be working, replace them. If they test to be working just fine, check your battery terminals for calcium build up, old terminals, bad cables or a bad ground. Check the alternator and starter wiring for the same wear.

The car is sputtering and backfiring. After awhile


buy a couple bottles of gasline antifreeze (it absorbs water). add one bottle to your gas tank now and another bottle next time you fill up. you should notice results almost immediately.

Car shakes at stop signs, very poor gas mileage, and sputters whe


Try having your fuel injector cleaned, you can start with running fuel injector cleaner though your gas tank and if that does not help then you have to get it cleaned out professionally or even worst have the injector's replaced if they are bad.
The other thing that will give it bad fuel would be a bad air intake temperature sensor go bad, as for the ruff idle that is common to a dirty or stuck EGR valve.
Good luck and keep me posted, by the way, what kind of Garage did you take it too? And are there and DTC codes from the ECM?
