Check for vacuum leaks.
Question Answered: truck went dead while driving wont crank over
December 14, 2009, 03:47 PM
A visual inspection, and possibly a few test should narrow this down considerably, but without seeing the truck and performing the tests, it's extremely difficult. I suggest towing it to a shop and get it looked at.
Question Answered: hard starting
December 14, 2009, 03:20 PM
The fuel pump is in the tank, and if the hose/pipe between the pump and the fitting on the tank has a leak, it can draw air into the fuel system, causing the problem you are experiencing. I would pull the fuel pump and check the pump and the hoses/pipes in the tank, make sure they are OK.
Question Answered: long crank,hard start.

Check for trouble codes stored in the engine module, check that the software in the engine module is up to date and check the fuel mixture (trim) settings. Verify that you don't have any vacuum leaks or air leaks in the intake system.
Question Answered: Engine Lacking Power

There are several things that need to be checked to determine what the problem is. If one plug is black, I would focus on that cylinder and make sure it is mechanically OK. Also check the spark to the spark plug in that cylinder.

Car Review: 2005 Nissan Armada

My experience with the Armada came when my car was in the shop and I rented one of these. I liked the interior, very nice, an tons of leg room. Nice power too!
Car Review: 1998 Volvo C70
December 01, 2008, 12:19 PM
The C70 is a fun car to drive! I think it is the first Volvo convertible, and although I had a few problems with the top and the windows, they were addressed under the Volvo warranty. When the sun is out, the C70 is a blast!
Car Review: 1990 Volvo 240
November 04, 2008, 03:22 PM
I had too many problems with my Volvo 240 wagon. It had starting problems, the ball joints wore out, and the a/c blower fan didn't work. I only had it for a few months and had to sell it, I couldn't find a good mechanic too fix the starting problems.
Car Review: 2003 Honda Element
November 04, 2008, 03:15 PM
I have 95,000 miles on my 2003 Element and I love it. I take it everywhere, in the dirt, snow and mud and it has been great. I can fit a lot of stuff in it for camping and fishing and it cleans out easily. I had a problem with the shocks but Honda replaced them for free! I will buy another Honda!
Car Review: 2001 Chrysler Sebring
October 29, 2008, 01:55 PM
I had the heater fan go out, and the door makes noise when I open and close it. Other than that, no problems except normal wear and tear stuff. I've had it for 2 years, so we'll see what happens over the next couple...
Car Review: 2005 Lexus RX330
October 29, 2008, 01:51 PM
This is the best car I've owned. Power is good, handles well, it has a really good "feel" to it. It's a solid vehicle. I don't think I'll get a car without GPS and a rear view mirror camera again!
Car Review: 1999 Volvo S80
October 29, 2008, 01:46 PM
I thought buying the new S80 would be a good idea, and I was wrong. I bought the T-6 the first year it came out and had many problems. Check engine light, bulbs that constantly burn out, and oil leaks to name a few. It was a nice car to drive when all was working, but it had too many problems. I heard they fixed many of the problems after a couple years, but stay away from the 1999 model!
Car Review: 1995 Ford Aspire
October 29, 2008, 01:40 PM
This may be the most aptly named "car" on the road. The dictionary def. of Aspire is "to seek to attain or accomplish a particular goal", and in this case that goal is for one day to be a real car! I rented one for a week because my car was in the shop and it had no power and a very inexpensive feel about the whole thing. I guess that's what you get for less than $10k.
