OIL PUMP , BALANCE SHAFT BELT, & TIMING BELT REPLACEMENT
OK so my sone was driving this car and it just stopped. After it sat for about 2 months we finally got it home from his friends house to work on it. We first checked and the fuel pump was bad so we replaced it. Then it still would not run good so we were told that the sensor in the distributor was bad. We then replaced the whole distributor. Now it starts but wont stay on if you let off the gas. We have since checked and changed the crank sensor and all the plugs. Still not change. It will start then dies if you let off the gas. We had the timing belt checked and it looks good. The last suggestion we got was to change the brain. I really could use some good advice. I have to get this car working and soon. I just cant believe that the fuel pump, distributor and brain all went out at the same time. Please help, my son needs this car asap. There are no reliable mechanics in my area that I can take it to so I am on my own fixing this.
installed new water pump and timing belt kit. started/ran for 2 days then wouldn't start / turn belt. fluid levels were good.
also will not roll back in nuetral
is it fixable?
Was driving and felt like transmission shifted. Then lights came on. Drove home and seemed to run and shift OK.
I Don't know if its the oil pump or oil pressure switch. only help?
Prior to that the driver floor board had been wet. And the idling had been acting up.. Timing belt was recently replaced also put new radiator..
I've had it a week, when I got it it threw 5 codes,now only egr,and bank 1 sensor 1 02
I HAVE A 2001 SPYDER AND IT WONT START. IT JUST CLICKS. ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES WORK. THERE IS A LITTLE BLACK BOX ON THE SIDE OF THE BATTERY AND WHEN I MOVE IT, SOMETIMES IT WILL START. WHAT IS THAT BOX CALLED? IT LOOKS LIKE THERE IS A FUSE IN IT...
burns oil fast and seems as if it gets hot under my hood
I had a mechanic friend replace the 2 belts. 3 days later the belt for the alternator ended up shredding and being sucked u into where the timing belt is and now after resetting the timing belt the engine turns over but wont actually start. Is this engine zero tolerance, and are there any tests I can run before ultimately having to replace possible bent heads?
sometimes have problems starting the car
