Self-described MNA (Mr. Know-it-all) I've been in, around, under, next-to, and towed almost everything with wheels. I work at a very busy tire and auto repair shop alongside 3 Master-techs and 30+ year auto and tire sales veterans. I don't deal in absolutes, I work with Murphys' Law in my front pocket, and Common Sense is priority # 1.

Try another battery. Just because your battery has 'volts' doesn't mean its strong enough to get juice to the vehicle.

Most newer vehciles you can't. There's no bleeder screw on the clave cylinder. You have to replace the entire slave assembly and master as one piece.

You'll probably have to replace the entire assembly- lens and all. Its probably a one-piece unit that plugs into a wiring harness.
Question Answered: can i replace my pcm myself?
December 30, 2010, 07:52 AM
You probably can replace the pcm yourself. But you will need a very expensive scan tool (1000+ dollars) to reflash the pcm when you install it. And you have to buy a new pcm also- that won't be cheap either!

Was the car driven into deep water and water filled the engine? Or has a head gasket failed and coolant gotten into the cylinders? Might want to answer that question first!

Not to be a wiseacre- reset your trip odometer when the low fuel light comes on- and then drive it till it stops- then you'll know for sure!

Check under the hood itself or on the radiator support for a white colored decal with very small print that has the necessary engine ID you're looking for.
