Can you check a fuel pump without taking it to the shop. If so how?

My van has 178,000 miles on it. It was running perfectly and then I felt a miss in the engine, dash lights dimmed and I lost some power. My temp. gauge was as high as it would go. I shut it off and called a tow truck. The van started when they arrived, but blew a great deal of white smoke out the exhaust and could smell antifreeze burning.
Is this a blown head gasket?

Will you still hear the fuel pump kick on if the fuel pump is failing

I DROVE THE CAR AND IT DIED WHILE I WAS DRIVING IT AN HOUR LATER IT STARTED AND DROVE IT MAYBE 5 MILES IT DIED AGAIN ANOTHER HOUR LATER IT STARTED AGAIN AND MADE IT ABOUT A 1/4 MILE AND DIED. WE CHANGED THE FUEL FILTER. NOW IT WILL START AND IMMEDIATLY DIE. BUT IT DOES STILL START.

Light just came on. Taken to mechanic and I wanted to make sure the starter can cause the engine light to come on

How do I find the bulb and change the light?

I have been hearing a clunk in my front end when I go over a bump. The service department at my auto dealership said that the bushings on the front end sway bar are loose and need to be replacement - cost about $140 and a one hour repair job. Is this legitimate diagnosis or will it lead to other problems? This problem is not affecting the performance of my vehicle.

I poped the hood then started the car and i can see gas leaking out of the injector every time i try ta start the car

i just had the transmission replaced

what does it mean if I need to reprogram my body control module

I have an oil bad oil leak that i thought was coming from the oil filter/pressure switch housing. i replaced gasket and switch, but still leaks very bad. I think that it is coming from above this. Can you help?????

My car is actually a 1987 Pontiac 6000 LE. I was told it could be one of the following: Throttle Positioning Sensor, EGR, or Oxygen Sensor. Which one is most likely to cause this problem?

ok,I had the battery & the alternator checked, & nothing wrong with them, the amp gauge,the tach, & the speedometer doesn`t work, & when you take off you have to give it the gas ?

the car overheated. I put coolant in it, but it leaked out as fast as I put it in the radiator. it leaks only from the back of the engine, not from the radiator or block.I cant get to the freeze plug to replace it.

Both reverse light and both rear side marker lights are out. Fuses are fine and bulbs are not blown! Any suggestions?

Ok, I got one for you. I normally answer these but I am a little stumped. The pass side headlight actuator motor started to make this groaning/howling/vibrating noise when opened or closed. It opens and closes smoothly. No skipping like I would expect with a failing actuator. The weird thing is that now when you set the door locks with the key fob the headlights cycle open and close with the same noise happening. If you lock with the interior door locks does not happen and then if use the key fob to unlock the cycle again happens with the noise at same time. Never did the open/close cycle till noise started. When turn on or turn off the headlights from inside it happens when opening and closing but will stay up till turn off the switch. I am tempted to replace actuator motor but unsure why does not skip when opening/closing if gearing is stripped and I do not believe the cycling open/close will stop with replacement. Thank you in advance for any help. Wife's car so must fix somehow, get what I mean?

When stopped and turn on left or right turn signal causes the idle to drop and sometimes will stall. When stopping in drive low idle also causes engine to stall even when it is warmed up.

I have an automatic transmission. My problem is while in drive the car will not shift out of first gear. I can go up to 20 to maybe 30 miles an hour then it slips to neutral. when the car slows down to about 15 mph it then goes back to first gear. My question is does this always conclude I need to get my transmission rebuilt or replaced? Could bad or low transmission fluid cause this?

how to replace a water pump

Hi I just recently replaced the ECM in my 96 Sunfire and now my gauges are going crazy! My speedometer is jumping all over the place in idle and is registering way too fast when Im driving, causing my trans to shift through the gears too fast, Im in 3rd gear when Im going about 20 but the speedo says im doing 60 or so.. Also check oil light is on and oil is not low, and coolant light is on but also not low on coolant...Is it possible I got a bad ECM (bought it from AutoZone) or is there something else I should be looking at? P.S speed sensor was also recently changed
