Having problems with your 1987 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup ?

Won't start I parked my S10 blazer for a couple months, went to drive it and it hesitated a ccouple times then quit, now I cant get it running. Changed the ignition module and the coil, everything seems to be fine, I'm just not getting fire. I'm a new single mom of 4 and I really need help. Please I've checked everything I can think of. Any ideas?

A few days ago my 03 murano died as I was pulling in the parking lot. I got a jump but it died as soon as we took the cables off the battery. I then went to get a new battery and installed. Everything seemed to be fine until last night. It started fine but as I was cruising through the neighborhood it cut out like it was going to die but never did until I got a mile down the road then it bit the dust. I had to get a jump with my new battery. What could be wrong? Fuel pump?, altenator?

I seem to be having a simlar problem to several 406 owners, but none seems quite the same - any advice appreciated! 2002 406 L 90 HDI Remote key fob fails to work at all, even with new battery in fob. Doors lock and unlock 'manually', battery seems fine (did 400 miles at weekend, and internal light works) and fuses etc ok. Putting key in ignition gets *no* response at all from car - engine turns over but does not fire, get no display on central console (eg 'immboliser fault') or mileometer etc (


Check for fuel and spark, For fuel it's as simple as removing your air filter and spraying carb cleaner while cranking. If still no start, then carefully remove a plug wire, insert screwdriver into wire (make sure you are not touching any metal or w ... 2005 Peugeot 405

My 83 Chevrolet runs great, (brand new 350) and starts great but if it idles to long (with no sounds of any problems) and I get truck up to 20-30 mph it either bogs down real bad or dies. Once it seems to cool off everything is fine. As long as truck don't idle very long everything is fine. What can this be? I've replaced fuel tank and all hoses as well as fuel pump. Could it be vapor lock??


Mine did that and it was vapor lock. I wrapped a 3/8th piece of copper tubing around a 3" iece of pipe and made a coil and slipped it up onto my a/c dryer and put insulating foam tape over it. connected my fuel line from fuel pump and to carb and whe ... 1983 Chevrolet C1500

I have a 1997 Volkswagen Jetta. It will not start. Cranks over fine. Getting fuel and spark and compression is good. Seems to want to fire as soon as I stop cranking. At other times I get a large amount of backfiring. It was running a little rough, but I drove it to where is parked now. The next day it will not start. New cap and rotor and plugs. Replace distributor and coil. I am new to Volkswagen, and don't know where to go from here.

Van stalls and will not restart. New electronic Modual, new fuel filter, plugs, wires, cap and rotor, fuel pump, everything I can think of. Compression varies from a low 80 to a high 100. Have overhalled the carborator recently. Is getting spark.... what else. problem seems different on different occasions. Last time got running and 4 min. into running slowly stalled and would not restart. Head gasket seems fine: no indication of coolent in oil, nor in pistons....


Check the ignition coil, it could be overheating and shuting down = by the time you get to test spark it's cooled enough to work. The compression is low but it still should run. You could also check to see if the EGR valve is sticking open as this ... Ford E-150

I just got done changing a 460 motor out of 1992 F-250. The old motor still ran when i took it out. But can't get the new motor to start. It seems like its not getting a strong enough spark but it is getting one and it has fuel.. I can't figure it out so any help would be appeciated.

My 1992 honda prelude has a starting problem. When I turn the key to start, once inawhile it will just crank over and over without firing up the engine. Then 30 minutes later, it starts up perfectly. The car runs great and smooth without missing or timing problems so I think the distributor is ok, and i have new spark plugs. If its a fuel issue, I replaced the fuel filter, and starter fluid doesnt seem to help fire it up. Also like I said, the car runs fine, so I imagine its getting sufficient g
