May 28, 2009, 03:44 PM
when my car is idling it kinda revs up and down all the time, back and forth nonstop. and when i step on the throttle in a normal fashion it hesitates, then runs rough till i get to about 25 mph after 25 mph it pretty much runs alot smother. i thought it might be a bad timing module. any one have any inquire to my problem? feel free to throw out anything u might know about the problem too, eveything is appreciated.

Question Asked: wont start after 3 hr drive
May 20, 2009, 06:28 PM
i had drove this car 3 hours nonstop at about 65-70 on the freeway until i arrived in my hometown, when i got off the exit and came to a stop the car had stop running. after that i had tried to start it again and again, and it just wont start. since then i have had it towed to my house and replaced the spark plugs and confirmed there is a spark coming from the spark plug wires. i dont have the tools to take apart the fuel lines to check for fuel but is there any other way i can make sure the engine is getting fuel?
i had heard from this site that if the distrubutor cap has a leaking seal that engine oil will get in there and let the car not start, would it still make a spark if this has happened? please help, thanks everybody!
