Car wouldn't crank over. Battery at full charge. Able to start under the hood, told it ment i needed to replace solenoid in starter. Replaced it, but wires were hooked up to where reconnecting the battery tried to start the car. Now, it cranks over over (with wires hooked up correctly), but won't stay running. Ran for a second, really rough, then not again... Sounds like it wants to run, but sounds like it's choking. They also sprayed something into intake, wanted to run more than before, but still wouldn't. What happened?! ECU?!
I put a new switch in it for the headlights all lights work except headlights and dome light. but still can not put the breaker its gets hot. but no lights
What else can I check
I was told it could be the heater core
the rate of loss is about 1qt per 200 miles.
Could some wires be touching or something coming from the starter in turn making the car not start? It doesn't even crank once ..smoke coming from it...got juice..and negative on the alternator..on empty but that wouldn't cause it not to crank at all would it...also every other time we go to drive it hve to wait on the bypassing of security lite

Just wanted to know the time frame in changing a battery.
The transmission will not do anything when putting it into any gear. Think it needs to be replaced.
Have checked tranny oil and linkage transmission just quit doing anything. I've read all of the forums and not 1 person has had any transmission problems especially with only 60,000 miles. I would appreciate any helpful ideas.
Have checked fuel pump, fuel filter, and opened up lines to see if gas is at the engine compartment. All of that checks out ok. We have no spark at the plugs and cannot feel any gas being pushed out of cylinder plug hole when cranking. Could it be the ignition control module or crank sensors?
