Hi, the "check engine" light on the Chrysler means that the engine electronic controller has observed a problem and has stored it as a coded number in its memory.

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok

Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

Changed fuel pump. Fuel pump does not come on and it's not the relay. What could the problem be? Was driving down the road and the engine shut down, but still turns over, just won't crank because...

do you have ignition fire? does the check engine/service engine soon light come on when when you turn the key on? can a scan tool communicate with the ECM? there are several things to check if you have no power to the fuel pump because the fuel pump relay is controlled by the ECM.

I have 2004 nissan titan with 110,000 miles and my service engine soon light came on. I had it checked and someone said it had something to do with the fuel area

actually could be many reasons, dont want to scare you but there are several sensors that control this grey area, Oxygen,temp,crank,mas,knock sensors. dirty air cleaner, dirty oil (oil sensor) the light will only stay lit if the computer has stored a code, so i suggest getting a scan done to narrow the possibility of causes. What sucks about this is it cost $80-100.00 for a complete engine diagnostic, (fuel pres,timing,air fuel,cat,misfires,etc..) But first,if you take the car to a auto-zone or O'reillys,maybe a napa they will perform a basic code test and hopefully give you a basic or solution to the problem. does the car still run okay? if so have them clear the code,maybe you got some bad gas or something that triggered this. Unless the car is running unusual, or you can hear, feel a problem don't be to alarmed of that light starring at you. Check all fluids,clear code which will shut light off and try again. Hows the fuel mpg holding up.

During the summer time it will cut off sounds like it is loosing fuel pressure will turn over, but wont start back up until at least an hour later. Drives perfect during the winter time no problems,...

What causes this is ussually the oxygen sensor. It works when the engine heats up and if its no good, it will run your engine lean or even shut it down. check them and replace them. They should be done every 2 years.

Throttle problems. as soon as you start the car it revs up to 4 RPM's and wont go down

Your idle needs to be tuned down, could also be an injector relay or fuel pump / injector pump relay

2000 Ford Expedition wont start

On the engine there is a tube that supplies fuel to the fuel injectors, on that tube there is a valve, like a metal tire valve, this is the fuel pressure test port, you will need a special guage to check the pressure that screws onto that valve, Kragen and other parts stores sell this test kit, it is very inexpensive, about $20.00, but cheaper than having a shop do it for you, if you do the test and you have no pressure while cranking the engine then your fuel pump is bad, the pump is in the gas tank, a big job and dangerous due to chance of fire if you are not cautious.

1994 geo tracker fuel problem

The fuel pump has 2 sources of power, when you crank the engine power to the pump is supplied through the cranking circuit of the ignition switch, after it starts the power comes from the run circuit, you most likely have an issue with the ignition switch.
