Trying to get it smogged
Now- when I turn the car on, after it has been sitting, there is a rumbling noise that goes away once I put it into drive gear- then it seems fine. I am worried that there is something bad going to happen and I do not want to get stranded on the highway I use. Can you think what this might be? I have given up on the dealer in the area...way too costly with shop hr rate. Just want to know if this might be a serious precursor to a bigger problem.
Have replaced crank and cam sensor and fuel relay. What can be causing this?
I received this answer when I asked why my truck chugs only when it is hot out. It also has two tanks.
My left rear end sags after car parked for a few minutes of being parked
Ok so the fuel pump stopped working on my truck. The mechanic said it was the relay connector, and got one of an 86 E150 Van. Well, after that we had no luck. We still had to replace the fuel pump. After getting the right fuel pump, it would not prime itself with the key on. You have to twist the relay wires together ( where he spliced them) in order to get the fuel pump to kick in, but it does not turn off. How do I get the fuel pump back to factory settings where it turns on with key then cuts off????
This is a ex model. I have a code p1381 (cyl pos sensor). I have replaced the distributor,ECU and the alternator. I have checked the cable harness from distrib to the ECU and it test fine. The plugs and wires are new as well. The car will almost start then die, it will do this twice and then start fine on the 3rd try every time. I also checked the timing and everything is on time.the car seems to run fine when it starts and this is the only code.
