Question about 1998 Plymouth Breeze

1 Answer

My car won't start after replacing the engine when told it was timing problems and easier to replace the whole thing rather than tinker with it, and a new fuel pump when there was no fuel being sent through the lines. It's still not getting fuel or spark but it seems there is a wiring problem under the fuse box, how do we get it out to figure out where the problem is? And does this seem logical?

I wonder if maybe some wiring got pinched when replacing the engine, that is completely illogical that you have no fuel or spark. Thats what I would do is start checking for power and ground at fuel pump and spark sources like the crank sensor. That would be the only thing that makes sense to me.

Starts but won t keep running

Probably not. Once the oil passages inside the engine get plugged up the block has to be hot-tanked to get them cleaned out. Thats after the engine is disassembled.
You can try an engine flush or two, but I would not expect much.
You may not be getting power to the fuel pump if oil pressure is low.

98 Isuzu rodeo, engine cranks and trys to start but it won't

If this is a diesel engine you probably have an air lock in the fuel system. It will need "bleeding" before it will start. If you have already tried bleeding the fuel system there may be an air lock in the injectors. If it still doesn't start I suggest you carry out a compression check because diesel engines need to be in good condition to start easily, especially in cold weather If it is a petrol engine, there could be problems with engine timing or ignition problems.

2006 dodge stratus won't crank and cruise control won't light

Must not have been much of a mechanic. If the engine runs and sounds fine sometimes and other times it doesn't then it does not sound like a mechanical problem with the engine. Sounds more like a issue with either the ignition system or fuel system.

Hi. i have a 1986 mazda 626, with the 2.0 4 cyl engine. car sat for a year or two. i replaced the driver side c.v., and the clutch. after some tinkering i got the car to start. but, for some reason it...

If the cars stays running for this amount of time I would replace the fuel filter to start. If it continued after this , check the fuel pressure and replace the pump if necessary. The only other thing I would be concerned about is the security system. But these usually only let the car run for about 2 to 3 seconds before shut down.

Trans shifts into overdrive at to low a speed. Then has a real hard time downshifting. The fluid is full and its red not burnt. I don't notice any slippage either. But when you try to accelerate it...

Sounds to me that your transmission is starting to wear out. The only thing you can do is replace the whole thing if it's an automatic. Standard transmissions are a bit easier since all you'd have to do is replace a single gear. Also, it helps if you replace the fluid and filter which involves dropping the pan since the filter is located inside the transmission oil pan.

I need to replace the transmission mount on a '94 1500 4.3L, 4X4. Which is easier, support the transmission and remove the cross member or release the engine mount bolts and raise the drive train? Tks

Supporting the transmission while removing the cross-member is easier. You will have the engine mount holding the whole thing in precise place, while you deal with the crossmember, and the transmission.

Comparing: if you release the engine mount bolts and jack up the drive-train, the whole thing would shift, and you could have trouble when the cross-member fails to go up well enough.

On the other hand, if the cross-member bolts fail to release due to "home-mechanic" syndrome, you have only the first option.

REplaced fuelpump , but it won`t start . I hear the fuel pump run and I was told the inline filter was replaced. So what is rong ?

Do you have a "no start" based on fuel, ignition, or engine problems? All of these are required to be good to start an engine. Must check for spark at plugs. If o/k check fuel pressure at fuel rail.If o/k check engine copression.
