pump runs and car will rise most of yhe time but at times it rise to the top of stroke of the cylinder . after the car has sat for some time an hour the rear end wil be on the bottom . when drivening the car the rear end will hit bottom in about 5 min.
I checked leaks by ear and with soapy water but had no succest.
almost inpossible to check all of the lines and fittings with soapy water.
My buddy suggested I inflate AIRBAG SYSTEM with propane and use a match to check for a leak !!! Not agood IDEAL Home owners wont cover my garage.
Looking for a better way!!

iT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE GOT AN AIR LOCK ....yOU NEED TO EXPAND YOUR EXPANSION TANK WITH A LARGE FUNNEL.... THIS ALLOWS THE AIR TO PUSH THE WATER UP WITHOUT LOSING IT ALL OVER THE FLOOR.......THE CAR NEEDS TO RUN UP TO TEMP TO ALLOW THE THERMO TO OPEN....THIS WILL ALLOW THE AIR & WATER TO FLOW ALL THROUGH THE SYTEM UNTIL IT REACHES THE EXPANSION TANK................HOPE THIS HELPS......PAUL B.
after water pump did you burp air from system? as for the timing chain did you put the old worn out timing chain in the same postion you taken it off? and you sure you didnt knock off a vacuum hose somewhere. to check that while engine running spray choke cleaner along hoses if idle rises you near the leak ,BE CAREFUL CHOKE CLEANER IS FLAMABLE
If your air conditioning isn't working, and you've had the fluid topped off, it usually points to a bad compressor. You'll have to buy a new one and replace your existing one. If you do go this route, contact me and I can try to guide you on how to do it.

You could try replaceing the fuel filter its on the frame under the drivers side door. but it could be the fuel pump if its the orginal one its about time for it to go you get 10 to 12 years out of them. The fuel gage is also wired to the sending unit and that is in the pump to. There is also a problem with the wireing to the fuel pump its not resistor wire it should have been a recall but the new pumps come with new wireing that has to be spliced into the orginal harnest so you might check the wireing to the pump it runs on top of the tank if you can lower the tank 2 or 3 inches you can reach in and pull it out to test it good luck
I would start by spraying starting fluid in the air filter. If it starts then you will know for sure it is a fuel problem. A way you can check the fuel pump is take off the gas cap. Have someone listen where the cap was. Turn the key to the on position and the person listening should hear the fuel pump run for about 5 seconds. If it doesn't run it could be the fuel pump relay which is under the hood on the driver side. You can swap it for the one next to it temporarily. But 98% of the time it is the fuel pump. You have to drop the fuel tank. It is held up by 2 straps. And the fuel pump is in the top of the tank. You have to turn a retainer ring half a turn to get the pump out. Be sure to get the filter on the new one really good. It will ruin the new pump the first time you start the car. It will **** up dirt off of the bottom of the tank.
Are you sure the new belt didn't jump time? How was the belt tensioner when you replaced yhe belt? Did your water pump leak onto or into your crank sensor?Are you sure you have proper fuel pressure?When you replaced the timing belt, did you make sure to find top dead center on cylinder 1 ? Just lining up the timing marks may not have worked if this is indeed what you did.If you had the crankshaft rotated 180 degrees, your motor would be trying to fire on the exhaust stroke, instead of the compression stroke. To find T.D.C. disconnect your battery,rotate your crankshaft until the piston that is marked #1 in your firing order is at the top of its stroke, this can be accomplished by carefully inserting a wooden or plastic dowel into the sparkplug hole of cylinder#1. The dowel will rise with the piston and at the point where it starts to fall will be T.D.C. Now your timing marks should line up,and you will then be on the compression stroke. good luck! hope this helps
Check all the fuel lines and connections very carefully for leaks and condition. The pump may be drawing some air.
We assume you have the correct fuel pump for the vehicle, that it is operating normally, you have the correct fuel filter and that there are no obstructions in the fuel system as a result of the work carried out so far.
If your getting gas and spark get an obd 2 scan tool and check your mass air flow sensor. I had the same problem. If your having a problem with this vehicle always check the computer first; it will save you tons of headaches later.
