THE CAR GO IN D BUT NOT R

in morning time-it will crank up and run perfectly fine and idols like dream-after a couple of revs-it will sound like it is rev llimiting and sputters till it dies and will not run again that day-this sequence happens every day. This is what has been done---starter replaced 1 month prior from this problem and ran perfectly fine. Fuel pump is working fine-fuel filter replaced and fuel pressure just fine. Spark plugs, spark wires,ignition module, iginition coil, magnetic pick-up has all been replaced--and still the same problem and gradually getting worse. The odd thing is-I put 3 different gauges and timing light on spark plug wire and when you turn it over-there is nothing and timiming light does not blink. When you take the spark plug out -it is indeed wet with fuel, when you place the spark plug and wire on to the intake manifold and turn it over-it shows great spark,the timiming light blinks,the gauges say good spark and the spark on the spark plug is bright blue. But when you place spark plug back into engine -it dows not spark, the timing light does not blink,and the gauges say no spark. What in the world can be happening? After new starter was put in----the car was driven from nashville to atlanta for christmas break with no problem. During xmas break--this all started. Daughter needs car for her nursing clinicals---please help.

Replacing sensor on the power steering pump. Could use diagram of the pump. Can not find sensor.It is a 4 cylinder, 2 wheel drive, manual transmission.

My car keeps giving me a check engine light with a code of PO455 which is the EVAP Control System. I have already checked the fuel cap and the problem still exists.

The problem started about a year ago. It started shifting smoothly after i had replaced the battery. But it would start shifting hard again after a while. I would disconnect the battery annd it would shift smooth again. But now that doessn't work anymore. Right now it's shifting too hard. Something in the electronics is causing the problem, maybe the computer control module.

They used to work. The system works good otherwise. I suspect something could have been moved while installing a stereo system. I can't really afford to take it in and hope to fix myself, any suggestions?

What does this mean? Can I take it anywhere or should I go to a Toyota dealership?

please help .Thank you

turns over gets spark from new coil to spark plugs. fule pump works, new fule filter, ICM, roter and cap, fule relay, fuseable links, starter silanoid.
could it be the pick up coil inside the distributer.

Fuses & wire connections intact, radio lights, cd/aux/BT functions all appear working, but zero sound. Note, car battery was replaced by dealer the day before. What is rec next step for repair/troubleshoot? It's become a very quiet, tiring drive!

what could itbe what should i do where should i take it?

The car seems lifted in the front a lot more than usual. Does not drive as smooth.

gas a little more, still nothing. I pushed the gas more than it needed but finally it moved back abruptly. It did it agian as I was still trying to back out. I put it in drive, same thing. It wouldn't move but with a lot of force on the gas it lurched back. I managed to pull to the edge of the parking lot and turned the car off, then back on. I was able to make it home. The next time i pulled out, same thing.

Today, I drove my car to the bank. When I came out and started the car and put it in reverse it wouldn't move. I pressed the gas a little more, still nothing.
