My 1994 J30 with 200,000 miles starts fine, but runs rough after a-while of using it and it will not start when you turn OFF then ON the engine. I have to wait the next day to start it and be okay. After replacing the TIMING BELT, BELT TENSIONERS,AC BELT, ALT BELT, PS BELT, CLOG INJECTOR, SPARK PLUGS, FUEL FILTER as regular maintenance, the car now runs great and very smooth like new. But, the OFF and ON problem of the engine is still there, It runs great when its running, but once you turn th

After rebuilding the engine of my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 it won't start. I bought the car as a non runner after the previous owner kept driving after the drive belt tensioner seized and shredded the belt, and basically cooked the engine! I managed to buy a brand new lower engine, and had the heads crack tested and rebuilt, I fitted a new timing chain kit and finally fitted it into the car. The battery has been off the car for more than a year, and when I refitted it, there are 2 orange lig

Why wont it start when you push start it has alt belt and has gas no ignition would that stop it from starting not geting gas to engin but all lines are holding gas so how do you bypass the fuel pump to engin to engage gas to injectors


When you turn the ignition on, it starts the fuel pump then sends fuel to the injectors. Since there is no ignition to engage the pump, it will 'starve' the vehicle of fuel. You might run a power source directly to your fuel pump but I'm NOT suggesti ... 2001 Hyundai Accent

Hesitation My Toyota has 122,000 miles on it but I replaced the engine last December with a compatible engine with 50,000 miles. About 2 weeks ago, my car started hesitating badly. Thought it was bad gas and used a fuel infecter fluid to solve problem. No good. Brought it to a mechanic who checked everything out on his diagnostic computer, checked timing belt(recently replaced also) and then gave up. Suggested taking it to a dealership but I am not close to one and would like to use that as a la

Atos GLS 1.1. -2007 with 22,650 mileage. My Atos engine has started about 5 months ago with a stronger/louder/higher running and idling sound coming from the right hand side of the engine - on the drivers side. Perhaps or by co-incidense, I've started hearing this sound after I had added its 1st tin of oil at a petrol garage - as a top up? My car has had its services according to the service plan on time of buying for 3 years. The mileage is low as I'm only using it to trave

Loud noise! 0 Jeep Grand Cherokee after about 5 min starts a very loud high pitch whinning.It used to eventually go away but now it is always whinning and even louder!Seems like it's coming from drivers side engine compartment near the intake manifold. I thought it was a belt because when you step on the gas the rpms go up and the noise quits until you slow down or come to a stop then it starts again!! Is it a vacuum leak? A bearing seizing somewhere? Belt tensioner?


I would say a bad pulley also. Try to open the hood at idle and see if you can hear where it's coming from. Possibly a bad idle pulley or even the fan belf if yours is a mechanical fan. ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I am thinking of buying a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder that has a 3.0 litre v6 that has 231000 miles on it. The guy that has the car at the moment has changed the radiator, timing belts, hoses and all of the drive belts, and the car ran just fine, He then stated that he had the water pump replaced, filled the tank with gas and the engine started knocking. He has advised me that the knocking/tapping sound/noise started about 20 miles after he had the pump replaced and filled up with gas. The noise soun

2004 Nissan Altima 2.5liter (125k miles). The check engine light came on during the day. When my wife drove the car up a hill she lost all power. The car will not start now and had to be towed. The car ignition and starter are fine as the car turns over but the engine will not start. I initially thought it might be the timing belt but was advised a timing chain is used on this vehicle and usually lasts the life of the vehicle.


I had the same problem and went to the dealer who wanted over $500 to replace the two sensors. the original ones are encased in plastic and send the wrong signal, the new ones that you can get at the parts department are all metal and I paid about $9 ... 2004 Nissan Altima

My 1999 Lexus 400 engine has a knock, sounds like it's coming from the drivers side of the engine. IUt's not inside the engine. I had the oil changed, I was using Castro 20-50W oil and the service center replaced it with Penn's oil 10-30W. Ever since the oil change the knock has started. Whenever I turn my wheels it's much louder. It's also louder when the engine is cold.I don't know if it's my power steerin g pulley or not. I thought my power steering unit was on the psg. side beneath the P.S.

Engine Belt I have a 91 olds v6 cutless cierra and my AC hasn't worked for awhile now and the Air Compresor is making alot of noice when the car is idle or moving very slowly, What i want to do is bypass the AC Compressor and just put a smaller belt on my car so that way the noice would go away. Is it possible to do that and if so what size belt can i use since the original belt for these cars are very long. Thanks

Engine noise I have a 2000 dodge grand caravan with a 3.3L i bought new, it now has 110k miles on it uses no oil runs great. it has a noise in engine that has been getting worse the last year. its coming from the front of engine, i can take the belt off start it and its still there. its not a rod or wrist pin or bearings i don't think because when i put it in gear under load its stays the same, driving down the road whether under load or off the gas its the same it sounds to me like a chain tens


It is true that this engine DOES in fact have a timing chain. The 3.0L uses a timing belt, which has to be replaced at regular intervals. Typically, the 3.3 & 3.8, which both use a timing chain, don't have to be replaced nearly as often but sti ... 2000 Dodge Caravan

My 1998 Jeep Cherokee seems to loss power everytime I start it. After just 2-3 seconds, the engine shuts off. I got the vehicle from an impounding area and it has not been used for more than three (3) years. All electricals are working including the engine computer unit and all fuel injectors. It has a manual tranny and has a 4-cyclinder, 2.5L, petrol fueled engine. I have already replaced the fuel pump and all the spark plugs but still did not fix the problem. Is there some kind of switch that


Since is sat so long, whatever fuel was in the tank has probably gone "sour". Old gasoline gets an unpleasant "varnish" smell to it. The only certain way to remove any bad fuel is to drain the tank, and by all means change the fuel filter again. ... 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Changed a timing belt on a 87 ply reliant 2.2 engine. Disconnected the battery terminal and that is when the problem started. Started the vehicle and it has a very rough idle. got a code 51 with the scanner, a colsed loop fuel control latch rich condition indicated by by O2 sensor and the timing is eradic using the timing light. unable to set timing because of this problem. Is there a problem with the injector itslf, or another sensor, or the pcm? It all started by disconnecting the battery cab
