Answers :

If the a/c line exploded and it the juction box and it arced chances are you got a voltage spike to the ecm and fried it that would explain the the rough running and the cluster going nuts. you can get a replacement ecm at a salvage place for around 200 bucks maybe less. for get the dealership your going to pay alot more. if you check the ecm i'm sure you will find the main plug probably burnt too. please rate this thanks and good luck.

My 2005 Nissan quest have two trouble code P0113-P0183, I already replace whole Fuel Pump for P0183 (built in fuel temp sensor), And replace Mass airflow sensor for P0113. But it,s still showing three code as it is. Two code are related with harness and connecters problem. So Problem is some where else.

My gas gauge stoped working, What i mean is, I can fill the gas tank all the way full and it want read but when u shake the car from side to side it will move up to the 1/4 mark but when it stops shaking it goes back to the empty mark and the gas light comes on. But if there's less than a half a tank it don't matter what you do it want read. I have checked the wiring up under the dash to see if there was a loose connection but found nothing. Could it be the fuel sending unit?

Car ran fine for about three miles then temperature gauge and gas gage stopped working...After parking it, went out to start it and it would turn over but would'nt start...could it be a loose connection in steering column?

No check engine light on until it stalls out. While driving around town and approaching stop sign/light, sometimes car will stall out. I also notice that my fuel gauge dips down about 1/4 tank and then comes back up slowly within 5-10 seconds. Sometimes when it does this as approaching full stop the fuel gauge will dip and car stalls. I had the o2 sensor, spark plugs and wires and fuel filter replaced. Still does it but not as bad. I have put fuel cleaner in when near empty and put 1/2 tank g


You didn't say how much fuel is in the tank when this happens. Some of these old GM cars will starve for fuel if the tank is near empty and you are braking or stopping with the car facing downhill. It could be rust or scale in the fuel tank clogging ... 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Starts and runs fine but after 15-20 miles if you let off the gas the RPM gauge spikes and the engine cuts off. I have replaced the Idle Control Valve, EGR, Fuel Pump Relay and Fuel Pump, Water Pump, Torque Converters. Also after the engine cuts it wont restart for 15-20 min at least. Not overheating at all on heat gauge either. Another problem is the brake lights stopped working. I replaced the bulbs, fuse, and brake light switch. Still they wont come on. The operating lights and blinkers still

I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 automatic The engine stalls at various times, mostly at idle, but not always. I have used a fuel pressure test gauge to monitor fuel pressure while driving. When the engine stalled, I continued to have close to 50 lbs of fuel pressure at the rail sharader test point. I suspect a problem with a sensor or maybe the wiring connections, but unable to to see inputs or outputs that might be causing the problem as I never get a error message or error code set. I ca

2002 Chevy Avalanche died while coming to a stop. The "check engine light" does not come on when the key is in "ACC" position. ABS light comes on only. Fuel gauge has been acting up also. Just put in 15 gallons of fuel, so I know I have fuel. Will not fire with carb cleaner either. Does crank, but will not fire and like I said "check engine light " doesn't iluminate. I am guesing cluster assy?? Thanks all.

Re: 2000 Honda Accord EX 4-dr V6 76000 miles Every few weeks, hot or cold, the engine turns fine but will not start. Removal and reinstallation of the 15A fuel pump fuse always resolves the issue. I have replaced the fuse and the main (fuel) relay. The new relay is a genuine Honda part from a dealer. I noted that the old relay clicked like it should when the ignition is turned on. Looking for a loose connection, I have tried wiggling the connections near the fuse without any change. Th

I had to take my 2008 F250 6.4 turbo diesel to the dealer because it was loosing power, It had codes poo87,p0088 and p2291. I cleared these codes after I changed the fuel filter, but lose of power issue came back after 10mi of driving. If I stop and shut of the engine, restart it, the full power comes back, after about 10mi. the lose of power issue starts again. Each time this happens the cruise control also stops working.

I have a 2001 VW Passat and my check engine light came on. I went and had it diagnosed and they said my fuel was just running lean and it was probably because the screw connecting my fuel line to my engine (or something like that?) was probably just loose. I have NO idea where it's at. Help?

Have a 99 ford ranger v6 3l. About a week ago I went to start it and it would turn over but not start. The gauge for the battery read as low. Checked the battery connection one of the terminal connections seemed loose. My husband fixed it later in the day and started. Then we noticed the same problem when the temp went down but as soon as it warmed up would start. Used throttle cleaner as well as engine cleaner stuff thinking there build up in the engine. It didn't help now it will not start at
