I have toyota Gaia wit 1az-fse engine when engine check light comes on it loses accelleration power,so we changed the fuel pressure sensor nothin changed next we changed computer bt after some time th


In stead of changing what is not wrong, save money and time by having the fault codes read and fixing the fault
check engine lights refer to both an engine problem and a transmission problem so what you may have could be in the transmission.

Have 1994 toy. truck with v6, when choke goes off the engine misses


Hey 94 TOY...

When did the problem start? Before you changed the wires and plugs? Or did it start, AFTER you changed the wires and plugs? Did the problem remain the same BEFORE & AFTER you made the changes?

1 - If the TOY ran fair to Okay before you did the work, then you may have done something wrong when you made the cahages. Check for correct plugs and firing order. Check for cross wiring. With engine runing pull one plug wire off each plug one at a time. Each pulled plug wire will slow down the engine. When you pull a plug wire that doesn't react and does not make any change ON or OFF that cylinder Plug.
Then that cylinder is not firing.

2 - Check for spark at that wire. If you do-not have Spark there, But the other wires do... the wire going to that cylinder is BAD.

3 - If you have the correct firing order and spark at all cylinders then the cylinder that did-not change the speed of engine has a compresstion problem. Bad valves, Piston or rings are bad... Major engine work and Major repair bill for the repair job.... GOOD LUCK....

What is an engine wire harness? Could it be responsible for my check engine light flashing? Could it have anything to do with the temperature gauge staying below C and running rough?


Your vehicle has hundreds of electrical circuits. The wires for these circuits are bundled together in what is called a wiring harness. The engine wiring harness is the bundles of wires that go to the electrical components of your engine.

Damage to a wiring harness can cause all kinds of electrical problems that can affect everything from how your engine runs (or fails to run) to how your lighting or entertainment systems work.

Yes, a damaged wiring harness could possibly be the cause of the problems you are describing with your vehicle. It could also be a lot of other things. That is what DIAGNOSIS is for. If your check engine light is flashing, it is because your engine control system needs to be diagnosed to determine what is causing the problem with your car that is causing the light to flash. The check engine light means pretty much what it says: CHECK YOUR ENGINE, or more acurately, your engine control system.

Ei have a firing problem no fire getting to the spark plug


You most likely have a bad spark plug wire. That is the cheapest fix for the problem. One way to test the plug wire is to take a pair of pliers and grab the plug wire while the engine is running and to pull the plug wire off WITH THE PLIERS!! DO NOT DO WITHOUT PLIERS!!! If the engine doesn't start to stall then that is a bad wire. Unfortunately this problem can also be a bad coil or distributor. But I suggest the plug wire first.

Need wire diagram for 99 durango firing order


FIRING ORDERS printpage_icon.gif

Before carrying out extensive tests to isolate poor running problems, check connections of spark plug wires. This is especially important if plugs, wires, distributor, etc., have been disturbed recently for service. Obviously, this is not applicable to the wireless 4.7L engine.

NOTE To avoid problems, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time to ease reinstallation.
For vehicles with an extensive service history, keep in mind that the distributor could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason, it is very important that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired.

Blowing engine control fuse on 94 grand cherokee


You might have a wire from the engine control circuit that has rubbed through on the engine block somewhere. Do a visual inspection of the engine wiring, and look closely for any damaged insulation. I have seen a problem like this before. Good Luck!

Keep blowning fuses, dont have fuse box cover to tell me which one it is?


The problem might be that you might have a short somewhere. Check in the engine bay for a loose wire which might be touching the engine or metal surface. Check behind the dash take the dash covers off and check for loose wiring. Check under the truck for loose wiring exposed wire touching the frame. I had the same problem the fuse blew for the brake light constantly till a friend of mine suggested to check for a loose wire which I did find. The wire for the a/c in the engine compartment came appart from the plug and it was touching the engine and it shorted out the electrical parts. I taped it up and no more blown fuses.
