Hello Foxyj476,
If you don't have if fixed by now Give me just a little more info
Year and engine size, But without that I can only help you out with what I can guess, It sounds like the ECM has went You obviously changed the fuel pump so we can eliminate that so I would say that the computer or ignition Module went out. Another thing is to take a good look at the fuse links down by the starter and make sure one of them is not bad. The way you would check them is to grab them in your finger and squeeze them and if there nice and firm but not hard they are alright and if there crusty then there bad, But I really don't think thats it, I am leaning more towards the electronics. Check and make sure your getting spark and if not it is more than likely its the ignition control or the computer. Ok foxyj476 hope that sends you in the right direction. Thanks for using Fix Ya Bear001.. Oh yeah if you need to give the info because of what is suggested is not your problem give me a line back here and we can try some more testing.

    Hello again

    I see Its 4.3 liter so the chances are it may be computer. But first check for spark and make sure its getting good Spark, Like you said you have already changed fuel pump so we can pretty my rule that out.

    Do you hear the fuel pump run ? Make sure you hear It when you turn your key on in to On position not cranking it, Listen closely and you should hear the Pump run for may be 2 seconds like this bzzzzz. Ok after you check for spark and if it has any Let Me know. But it If it doen't Your probably looking a your Ignition Module, Hope that Helps You out, And get back and let me know. Oh Yeah Foxyj476 If there is any one you Know with a OBD II computer It will tell You what exactly is wrong with it, Making it much easier to fix, But If You want to continue to trouble shoot with me I will be avail. until thursday then I won't be on line for about a week. So Check those things and get back to me, You can email me at bear1 at huges dot net I wrote it like that because it can not just be seen by anyone, Hope Everything works out and hope to hear from you soon..

Cutting down on wind noise while driving

There's a quick and easy way to cut down some of the wind noise in your car while driving on the highway. Open the doors and look at the rubber seal at the top edge. See how it's a groove? This is to allow rainwater to channel down and off of the car.

However, that groove keeps the door from sealing as tightly as it could, and as a result, you may have wind noise at higher speeds. To fix that, try this:

Go to a hardware store and get some clear PVC hose (aka "fish tank tubing"). For an A4, get a single length about 14 feet long. On an A6, you'll probably need 18 feet to be safe, and a few extra still for an A8. You'll need the hose, a pair of cutters, and five minutes' time.

Starting at the front edge of the groove on the driver's door, press the tubing into the groove, trying not to twist it. Press it in evenly and smoothly, and when you get to the back edge of the groove, cut it off cleanly. Repeat for the other doors.

By using the tubing, you allow the door to seal more tightly, but you still have a channel in the tubing to allow rainwater to drain away, so you have the best of both worlds - a better door seal for quieter driving (and possibly better sealing to keep heat or AC in), and a way to still channel away rainwater:)

I have a 93 Plymouth Voyager. About a week ago both the brake and ABS lights came on and I had almost no brakes. Made it home, and found broken springs in rear passenger brake. Fixed them, also bled the...

The question is: do you still hear the buzz of the brake pump? If your brake pump has stopped get a hammer and metal rod about 2 feet long. Open the front hood of the car and turn the ignition on but do not start the car. Locate the brake reservoir (with fill caps) and follow the two large hoses down to the metal pump directly underneath bolted to the top of the transmission. Place the metal rod against the side of the pump and rap it several times with the hammer. If the pump is stuck it should start running again after a couple of taps. With the pedal is now soft and the ABS is now working the lights should go out after a couple of stops. You should be alright to drive until the pump gets stuck again , usually from 2 to 6 months. If the pump will not start up go to the salvage yard and purchase a used one. A new one if still available it will run about $900. If you have made the right repairs the lights will go out on there own.

Car will shut down at random times. There is no pattern to it either. It will shut down at a traffic light, on the highway, or on city streets. I have power everywhere else: lights, radio, and everything...

It could be an electrical problem or a fuel problem somewhere, but I suspect the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) is going bad. When this starts going out, the car will shut off at anytime, but it will sometimes start right back up and sometimes a couple of hours. But I will say, if this is the problem it will leave you stranded. Good Luck.

Location of speed sensor on 2004 silverado automatic transmission

the speed sensor is located generally on the tailshaft housing or in other words where the driveshaft slides into transmission has a small black sensor with a couple of wires going to it. those trucks have a bad problem with the cluster going out on them though. more than likely that is going to be your problem. you have to take cluster to dealership (new one) and they have to burn the current mileage into it.

2002 pt cruiser dies then fires right back up randomly going down the highway

most of the times when the car cut out it is cause by the crank angle sensor you wait for it to cool down and it will fire back up again, best way to check it is to take a bottle of water with you and try to locate (which is between the fire wall and the engine on the driver side on the engine block) where the crank angle sensor. when the car cuts out pour the water on the sensor to cool it down if the car then starts right away that is the problem.
