On occations, the motor is cold, my eng. light stays on, po442 (EVAP sys., small leak detected). My gas mil. dropped alittle.

I just replaced the fuel pump the splice was not corroded it gets spark from the distributor but it just cranks and cranks if fuel or starting fluid is put into throttle body truck starts but doesn't stay running although it does backfire. It had been stalling out occasionally then went to the gas station put some gas in it drove home then wouldn't start.

Yesterday, in Petersburg, I can't get the gearshift to release after pressing brake pedal very hard.

turn the key on, has fire to coil for a second, when cranked no fire to coil. does it have anything to do with the automatic shutdown relay?

what would cause temp gauge to go straight to hot even after vehicle has sat all for day or so on 2001 dodge Dakota 3.9 L V6, but didn't do this until I change the alternator. Today have changed the thermostat and coolant temp sensor and still no change to the gauge.

sometimes the shifting problem will go away, but chattering and squeaking stay.

Want to buy a 02 dodge Dakota SLT 4x4 V8 4.7 liter but the owner told me it needs Oil sending sensor changed. I need information on where its located? What tools will i need? And is it easy to change?

I have done O2 Sensors, TPS (Throttle Position Sensor), Plugs 2X, Wires 2X, Cap Rotor 2X, Coil, and a lot of other new parts however my truck will not turn over. I am at a complete stand still trying to figure out where to go next. I have replaced everything and then some of what any code has ever come up (Which was always with the O2 Left Upstream, and 5 & 6 Misfire). What Now?
