Time for an engine service!! Oil change due?
Possuble exhaust restriction ie..catalytic converter blockage. Yellow light on in dash with engine runnng?
Contaminated or wrong fuel.! Spark isn't the problem. Even if it were flooding from good, clean gas, it should start at wot! Gas to the floor in other words. That is "clear flood". Try that to see if it starts then post results. If not check for water in fuel filter!!
Engine size needed!
4 or 6 cylinder engine???? While we are at it, manual or auto transmision???? "I" would just like to know!
See any smoke or hear noise uner hood while engine is running? Possible fluids from repair burning off hot exhaust and should get better as it is driven!
It may have an override button/switch that will turn the lights off until it's repaired, or remove fuse/bulbs if it's going to be awhile before shop can fix it. Can use manual map lamps for lighting, if equipped. Suspect shorted combo or dash dimmer switch.! Dash lamp dimmer should NOT dim the 'dome' light(s)!!
Have it tested with a professional scanner, used by a professional to HELP find the trouble!
If 3.1 engine,, look closely underside of hood on passenger side for a line drawn by coolant splatter, IF you see that, the water pump is leaking!.....Have another mechanic pressure test the system and check for leaks,, timing cover gasket leak is the least likely suspect....but possible!
Time to let a mechanic diagnose it to find the actual problem! That's what I suggest...throwing on parts doesn't seem to be working!
