I know nothing about vehicles so it's hard to explain the issue correctly. It started with rpm gauge jumping up and down. Van was jerking... then heard a knocking noise followed by what sounded like metal getting caught up in Motor. We just got new spark plugs and wires... my husband checked to make sure wires were in good. Anyone have a clue before I take to mechanic tomorrow?

cut off while driving , not out of gas, rotor is turning , changed fuel filter got some black stuff out of it, getting a small spark out of plugs

I changed spark plugs wires distributor cap rotor butten knock sensor. then had no fire comeing from the plugs changed distributor got fire still no start

My car was getting hot so I took it to a mechanic and he says he flushed out the water pump and when I asked him where it was because it was right on top he says now it's undeneath by the timing belt. I've never heard of that.

Tried a jump,checked fuses and replaced distributor.But I am still not getting fire.The motor cranks but won't fire. Please help!!!!

It has been shifting hard

When idling it misses and quickly engine does
Misses while driving
When slowing or stopping engine dies
Giving it gas helps but it still misses
Diagnostics listed knock sensor

I can lock my car at night before I go to bed, and in the morning when I get up, it will be unlocked. This has been happening for several months now.

I have replaced fuel pump fuel. mass air sensor and car starts but when it comes time to leave from a stand still it makes like me using a walker and sputtering have I left of a hose or what ?

the problem occurs every time the van starts and I need to fix it ASAP because my mom has taken my vehicle and i need it back fast, so please help me.

I have replaced about $400.00 so far.My wife will drive the kids to school one day and the next day the motor will turn over but will not fire up and that afternoon
fires right up. I have replaced the dist.pluggs,wires and fuel pump and fuel pressuse reg. weard. I think that this is electrical.I noticed that the dash light will dim
when driving.I can't trust this van and my wife needs to be able to trust it.
