Then try to restart but won't start up had fuel pump replace filter and flush the fuel lines. But still won't fire up
I was pulling out of my drive way this morning and started down the road. When my car jerked and shut off. All lights come on. So I the switch off and tried to crank it. All the lights come on on the dash but will not crank. Does not even make a sound when trying to crank it.
It has a tapping or rattling sound when i start it up. I have replaced the lifters. The rocker arms are not loose. Im teying to see if the push rods are bad.
The temp gauge for the oil stays in the middle for the most part, good I know but past few days I start hearing a whistling sound it goes up to hot the check guage light sometimes comes on at that point then I hear a gurgling sound and it goes back down.
it will stay smooth at hywy speeds then when u come into slower speeds 50% of the time it will start this jerking feel .if its doing it at 20-30 ill engage 4x4 it stops.until i disengage it .also has a clunk when ill make a left turn at times dont know if they could be related or not.
starts on first crank
if the timing chain or the tentioner was bad the chain would rattle all the time why only when the engine warms up
apparently my timing chain has broken and estimated 20 hoiurs in labour to remove the engine to fix the small and easy part. alternative another engine. you would think this would be cheaper since there would be no replacing of parts?
My wife is driving to work and says her car is making alot of noise, she said oil pressure light and battery light came on then a green clock ?
I can fill gas into my gas tank
