Question Answered: 

Owner / Operator; This one can separate the Techs from o-zoners, possible causes: restricted fuel filter, faulty fuel pump. faulty mass air flow sensor, contaminated mass air flow sensor, leaking intake manifold gasket, air induction pipe leak, leaking pcv vacuum harness, faulty brake booster, or leaking throttle body gasket. Contaminated / restricted fuel injectors also may be an issue. Only systematic troubleshooting by a trained, experienced, & equipped technician will arrive at the best, most cost effective solution.

Question Answered: 

Owner: I do not believe a restricted fuel filter would have anything to do with an evap code or light on condition, I would recommend a complete evap system test, fuel cap test, & smoke test.The scan should be done with a vehicle specific scan tool. The scan tool used by aftermarket automotive part supply stores is a "generic" or OBD Global scan tool, and it may not show " pending " codes, which may give the tester the impression of no codes.

Question Answered: 

Owner: Odometer reading on this vehicle? If it is high mileage, over 100,000, with the original calipers, there is a good possibility that the brake calipers or caliper slides, or both, are causing the pads to wear out prematurely, other causes: master cylinder compensating port restricted, internally collapsed brake hoses,abs hcu problem, extremely aggressive driving habits, or driving with both feet!

Vehicle owner: The solution may be engine and/or transaxle mount(s) replacement, or possible transmission or exhaust problem, like a failed catalytic convertor, or exhaust hanger, Most shops, including this one, would give you a free estimate for this issue.

Question Answered: 

owner: Po441 indicates a problem with the evaporative emissions system, the purpose of this code is to give the technician a diagnostic path for the most efficient diagnostic procedure, the code definition does not pinpoint a specific component. The most likely cause is a split hose connection on one of the control solenoids, but there are a host of other possibilities. Good professional technicians never diagnose a vehicle based on a code, rather, they follow a diagnostic procedure which starts with the code for direction.

Question Answered: 

Owner: For about $50.00 or less, you can buy an OBDII Generic scan tool @ an auto parts store, which is not a bad investment, plug it in & look @ data, while cranking you should see a RPM reading of 300 to 600, next check for spark by removing a plug wire & put a screwdriver in the end of the wire & position it next to a ground, crank and you should see spark, if you do, check for fuel pressure with a fuel pressure guage,or, end the agony and tow it to a qualified shop and get it fixed !

Question Answered: 

OWNER: V-6 ? If so, check the foil-covered wiring harness between the block-mounted rear crank sensor to the ignition module, pull it out & open it, you may find the wire insulation has failed allowing these two wires to touch, if so; there-in lies the problem, we have found and repaired several of these.
