Was doing a TBI cleaning. Gas came up n out so there was extra fuel to burn when starting. When starting it killed the battery and obviously wouldnt start. This is where it gets mind boggling, I put a brand new battery in and even had it on jumper cables an it still wouldnt turn over in the slightest. Now im on to believe in that whole ordeal I shot the starter in the process of trying to start it.
I forgot to mention, I have slightly larger than stock tires and.polished aluminum rims, perhaps it's a shock or suspension issue, although it does not do it at high speed ?
My 94 Sonoma runs like a champ, drive train issues. I have noticed in City driving, 35 mph and under there is some sort of hopping thing. Is this Normal ?
Between 20 - 35 mph it always hops no matter which gear it is in. Full acceleration and freeway speeds it runs smoothly.
It's been awhile since I changed the spark plugs and the fuel injectors have recently been replaced
Got minimal information from the guy. He didn't really seem to know about the truck itself. He does know what's wrong with it. There's some rust in the rear left wheel well, not sure how bad it is, haven't seen it yet. The front wheels in the 4 wheel drive are not engaging. He had the engine replaced last winter, and the 4 wheel drive stopped working after that. He thinks it's the same engine. (Doesn't know much about the vehicle at all.)
Also the AC compressor needs to be put back in, why would it be taken out in the first place.
How much would the two major problems (AC and 4wd) approx cost to fix?
My truck feels like its miss firing and ist sputters. What could cause this? No other problems at all.
