Drives like a beast, then the check engine light came on right before I stopped for gas. Ran fine for a few minutes, stopped and started again... 2 miles in it stalls and dies. It started back up and made it to the house, but then won't turn over at all. It tries - hard! But it sounds like it's not getting any gas. I can hear the fuel pump come on when the key is in accessory, the relay switch clicks, and the fuse is good. But won't start!! Help quick!
spark plugs and cables which order do they go
While driving the gas pedal stopped working, and we just coasted off the road with engine still running at a regular idol. I shit the engine off and now it won't start. I have changed the TPS and the fuel pump seems to still kick on.
It like the car is going dead ...
Not sure what type or brand is best for my van.
Van drove fine. Parked it for an hour. Acted like it was out of gas, put gas in (thought maybe gauge had quit), didn't help. Idles erratic, backfires with black smoke when driving. Using way more fuel than before. Runs too rough to drive. Checked for basic vac leaks.
Driving interstate, major growling noise like rear end going. Got to the house no reverse. Could this possibly be an electrical issue. I had recently pulled transmission out from the motor just enough to replace freeze plug. When I pull it into reverse I get nothing, no weird noises, no surges, nothing. Oh yea van is used for ice cream business.
When the weather is hot my van starts but dies, happens multiple times. Once driving it is fine and when weather is cooler it runs great. It has died coming to stop in hot weather once also. Was told it was vapor lock? How can I fix the issue? Thanks
Has no hookup on bumper. Can I add one/
