Sounds like the results we had on a Jeep Cherokee after a friend showed us how well his heated pressure washer could clean up an engine comparment.

It took a couple of days before the Jeep ran normally again.

I think the splash caused some seepage into a connector, perhaps one connecting some sensor to the 'computer.'

Letting the car dry out if you can keep it running for 20 minutes or so until the engine is warmed up and then ignoring it for some hours might help.

Whats wrong with Helen?


The speed sensor might be bad. I used to own a 99 Mitsubishi Eclipse with the same symptons. The car will start, but will not pass the 1st or 2nd gear, the speedometer will be at 0. I replaced the speed sensor and all the problems went away.

Hi Shane, I'm glad to help!

Shane, I'm not there to do a diagnosis but it sound like you may have a rocker arm that may have came off. You can pull the valve cover off the side where the noise is and see if that has happened. Not sure, but you need to start somewhere right. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Shane.

2004 sebring won't start at all


sounds like you might have lost the altanator. Check the battary to see if it is very low, if so it was running of the battery and not the altanator. try charging the battery and see if it will run. If it does, checkthe voltage on the battery. it should be above 13 volts when runnig.If not it is the altanator.

Bought 2001 Lumina.. head gasket was leaking. fixed that n noticed cooling fan motors were not running. Replace all 3 relays n ect n fans started working. Drove it two days n it started runnin hot pulled...


I had a similar problem. Is your temperature gauge pegged to the right as very hot? Or reads always cold, even when hot. If it is a 3100 motor their is a coolant temperature gauge sending unit under the air breather intake that is right next to where you replace the thermostat.

Get a haynes repair manual at a parts dealer, Amazon, or your public library.
On the Chevrolet Lumina, Monte Carlo, & Impala FWD 1995 to 2005 it's under section 3-8 on page 3-6. It goes into great detail, and it's too complicated to explain here. If your sensor is bad, but the wires and fuses are good then the fans won't run.

Your second fan only runs when the air compressor is turning, If your ac compressor is not running then the sensor will not have the passenger fan run.
You have to see if the fan motors are good and then the wiring is good, and no fuses blown. You might blow fuses so have extra blue ones if I remember right. Recheck fuses after testing.

Reverse just quit on '95 Pathfinder


If it is an automatic transmission it probably needs transmission fluid. If a standard shift check and adjust shift linkage.

I have a 96 Chevy Lumina with an electric sliding side door. A few weeks ago we started having problems with it. I went to work and when I got ready to leave it would not start. I had to have it jumped. Got home and let it set over the Thanksgiving weekend. Went to start it the Mon/Tues after and nothing. Let it set another week and still nothing. We jumped it again and it took 15 minutes to get enough of a charge in the battery to get it started. Took it to a battery store and they checked the battery and said that was the problem. We replaced the battery (it wasn't that old) and went home. A few days later it wouldn't start again. Could this problem have anything to do with the electric slinding door? if so, any suggetions on how to fix it?

Car dies when you put it in gear


I don't know if this will do it for you but I experienced a similar issue. During my efforts a GM mechanic told me that these engines had very tight injector parameters, he recommended I try to use a GM product for cleaning the injectors. It is a little costly, about $25.00 for a black bottle, but I put one in my gas tank and my problem went away. So, every six months I put one in the gas tank and have not have a problem.

Get the real thing at your local Chevrolet dealer.

Good luck
