Sounds like you got a pretty good idea what youre doing, are you sure the immobilizer is disconnected. Sounds like thats the only thing left.

    wouldnt it usually catch and just run lumpy for a few secs then cut out if it was the float?? Not 100% sure but got feeling the immobiliser is prime suspect. Still without seeing the car its hard to tell

I have a 98 Intrepid with a 2.7 engine. It was driving fine on Thursday night. Went to leave for work Friday morning and it wouldn't start. So far, we have tried a new battery, had the started tested,

The 2.7 had alot of problems with the cam sensor. I would start there. Its located on the front top of the timing cover. Unplug it and see if it "Pops" attempts to start.

I have a 1996 GMC Jimmy with a v6 vortec in it and i have a huge problem. When i bought the truck it started missing so i thought plugs and wires and oil change and its good. Well the problem isnt always...

Check fuel pressure it should be at least 52 psi if anything less replace fuel pump.If pressure is good then pull vacuum line off of the fuel pressure regulator and if fuel runs out replace regulator.

My Iphone wont turn on

my best guess is to plug it into itunes and hold down both the home and sleep buttons. this will put the phone into recovery mode and sadly has a very high chance of erasing everything on the phone. It, however, seems to be the only way to turn it on.
