cold morning, i let my truck idle to warm it up for about 15 minutes. while standing next to it the engine just stopped running. no sputtering, just died. the fuel tank had maybe an 1/8 in it. i put 2 more gallons of gas in it still nothing. ive since been told, the pump relies on the fuel to keep it cool. is this true? maybe idling it for 15 minutes with low fuel caused the problem. please help. i am stranded at a hotel far from home

Out of the blue my Dodge Shadow, which only has 22,000 original miles won't go into any gear.The fluid is full, clean-not burnt, and no leaks.The engine runs but won't engage,

I would like to know where to hook up pressure guage to check the fuel pressure

Sounds like a lifter sticking on cold starts,
until oil circulates!!!

The passanger air bags on my 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan SE are turned off. Is there an easy way to turn it on?

car shimmys bad when i slow down to a stop after any speed i come down from and it starts to shimmy at 15 mph , and i can stop it from happening if i shift to nuatral to a stop then i put into gear and it takes off grate through all the gears please help thanks danny

I've read the cause of this issue is a faulty low pressure sump pump located in the oil pan.I cannot validate this but if I'm going to drop the pan to clean the pick-up screen would it make sense to replace the pump as well?

This issue began last January, 2010. I relocated to a cold climate from the tropics of S Florida. First day out on the road, I lost oil pressure and the knocks began immediately. I had it towed to a service station. After the 'Lecture' I got about proper and frequent oil changes, the mechanic went about looking for the problem. A few days later I got a call from him saying the pick up screen was clogged (Another lecture). 1600.00 later I picked up the car and the issue seemed to be resolved. From that point, I changed the oil religiously at jiffy lube and also used their oil system flush thingy too. Everything seemed to be alright until a couple of weeks ago (12/2010) when the oil pressure thing came back. Back to the mechanic I went (Another lecture). This time the pressure gauge was moving up and down from Zero to the low point on the gauge. I believed it might be the pressure switch and had it replaced. That did not resolve the problem and back it went to the mechanic.

This next visit was to replace the oil pump. It was a very big job. Once inside the motor, they found the timing chain guides disintegrated and the tensioners needed replacing. Those parts and a new oil pump were installed. After all that pressure is still low. The question is, should I try auto-rx to get rid of the sludge and look at the pick up screen again?? I can't afford to walk away from the car right now


Our Van will not start and has no power to fuel pump we have bypassed the relay and the fuel pump came on the relays are good and so is the fuel shutoff switch on the firewall what else could it be.

dies while driving,sometimes hard to start,new plugs,wires,rotor and dist.cap.the idol control mod. does not seem to function. how far does the I.C.M.suppose to travel? no diference when idoling, pluged in or unpluged.should there be a diference?

i was wandering why both front brake calibers are locking up on there on i will be riding 55 and they will lock right up i have done allready put two new calibers rotors and shoes

after i fill up at the gas station the car does not start so i have to reset the pcm and it starts, but if i dont fill it up all the way it starts with no problem, would this be roll over valve issue?

Price on replacing from engine seal

Van has new or replaced everything, including battery,cable connectors,starter, electronic distributor, plug wires, plugs, relays. Will not start when cold. Electrical system checks out. Fault code is 12-26-55. Runs rough and engine light comes on after a few seconds of running.

My van everyone once in awhile doesnt shift in gear...it will jus rev but nothing else....I was told to change my transmission fluid...is this the correct fix?

will i likely be replacing front and rear rotors? i'm sure front need replaced when i do the pads. how likely is it that the rear will need replaced too?

Today, I used my key to open the door and the alarm went off. Now, I can not turn the car on. However, the battery is still operational and my radio still works. The car turns over for a second but then nothing.

ok so i went to see why my check engine light was on they did a smoke test checked fillters and oxygen sensors and as well the gas cap and was good but did not find any thing when disconectting the battrey the light will go of for about a week then comes back on what would be the problem?

I just had my car inspected on Tuesday, where they informed me that my left balljoint needed to be replaced. I went ahead with the repair and yesterday I noticed that there is black oil all over the side of my car, originating from the left wheel well. It looks like while I was driving, it was dripping and getting thrown back onto my car.

I'm ruled out that it is motor oil. I just had my oil changed, and just now checked to make sure that my oil levels were good. Which they were. Besides, this "oil" on the side of my car is really black.. no real smell. Wipes off the car cleanly. I called the repair shop that replaced the ball joint-thinking that this was some sort of lubricant that is dripping out... they can't be sure and want to see my car again. But I am livid! I just dropped a lot of money into my car these past few days and I have nothing left to spare. The car was fine until this ball joint was replaced. Please help? Any Ideas?~!

what is the cost for changing inner tie rod on both side

I replaced the clock spring in my 2001 durango and the air bag light went out and the cruise control works again, but now the horn on the steering wheel doesn't work?

I pulled out of the drive way last week and the brake felt soft. Looking at the dash I saw the brake light and ABS lights come on 2 seconds apart as the fluid emptied out behind the truck. Turns out dodge had a recall for brake lines going out next to the tank on the frame rail in 2001. I'm the second owner. The lines are now replaced by Car-X and the brakes seem to work fine. Car-x said they could'nt find any codes making the lights stay on. Dodge wants 100.00 to run a diagnostic instead of just shutting them off.I've disconnected the battery for several hours to see if that would help, but they are still on. Any ideas? Kevin

where is the fuel pump shutoff relay on this truck?

I'm installing H.I.D. headlights and the wiring is giving me 12v on all (3) wires going into the headlamps. There is a red wire, purple w/ white, and all purple. Now the purp. w/ white is the high beam and the red wire is a low beam but everything shows power untill I hit the high beam switch then the red and purp. w/ white alternate. Now when I plug up the H.I.D. kit the red wire drops in voltage. I simple fix that problem with a relay but then the red wire stays on constant. I would like to know which wire to use for my low beam headlamps....

no heat never

i need to see the picture of the defroster hook-up because there is an arm disconnected and the temp. of the cab isn't hot enough?
