Question about 2000 Plymouth Breeze
An engine only needs 3 things to start and run. gas/ fuel air charge. spark and compression. you can check all three with little to no tools. #1 put the key in ignition and turn it on DO NOT CRANK IT. just turn it to the on position. Then go under the hood and look for a fuel bleed off valve which has a cap most times on it that is IDENTICLE to a air fed valve for your car tire, that is exactly what it is oif the cap is on or off it lloks exactly like the car tire valve. Find that, stand as far back as you can from it. Make sure before you push the valve down (like you are letting air out of the tire) that all electric things are off and nothing to cause a fire is within 5 ft in any direction from that little valve bleeder. Press it down just a quick second. Gas should shoot out or up or in any direction of that valve about 4 ft. remember this so you take correct percuations to avoid fire and or getting gas in yer mouth or eyes. If gas shoots out under pressure we will move on the the next one spark. get some type of metal bar or anything like that (screwdriver) that will slip in between spark plug and the end of the wire. set it up so, if it is sparking. You will be able to see the spark jump from the end of the wire Or what you stuck in there to make the connector stick out closer to being able to see and ground it. it should be a very small amount from some type of metal. then while cranking the car you can see the spark jump and know you have spark. and last is compression, pull any spark plug out, put you thumb over the spark plug hole. have a friend turn the engine over. do not push your thunmb on to that hole just set it there.,this because if all is good the intake stroke can **** yer finger into the hole and do something real nice like peel yer finger nail right off. as the motor is turned over about every 4 times around it should **** quite hard on yer finger and opposite that, it should make a load air pushing nosie. Those are the 3 basic ways to check for the minimums a fuel injected car engine needs to run. If you have all of those then it gets more complicated. most often if they are all good, it will start and run, most on board diaognostics have a fail safe built in and will run with the very minimums. if it wont, you are more than likey missing 1 of the 3
