You obviously need to replace your TPS, and you may need a new belt tensioner as well. On these cars the timing belt setup is not about no 1 cylinder being top dead center. Here are the proper steps to do a timing belt on this vehicle:\015\012 ... 1996 Ford Escort 4 Door
Stats: Ford Bronco xlt. 1985. 170,000 miles. New Starter. Oil & Oil filter replaced as of a week ago. Carbs cleaned with "Carb Cleaner" and a toothbrush. All original parts, otherwise. Now my issue is, my car wont STAY running. I turn the key and it starts - no problem. Engine turns over and sounds fine..just like it normally does. If i sit there though, or even if i drive and come to a stop light, the car wont STAY alive! It will bog out and die. This ride wont keep an idle. Why do
This is a carb vehicle right. You didnt say whether or not you adjusted the idle screw on the side where the cable attaches. This could be your reason. . \015\012Also there are a couple real small holes in the venturi where you cleaned. Is it ... Ford Bronco

My 2002 mitsubishi galant stalled while driving yesterday. it does have 196,000 miles, but it had been running very smooth since i got the car. I came up to a stop sign and went to pull out onto the highway, and as soon as i started to accelerate she shut off on me. I say shut off because there was no strange engine noise when the car stalled. no hesitations nothin. it just shut off, and now it wont start at all. It does sound kind of "wonky" when it turns over. (like each rotation it goes norm
If it broke a timing belt or chain it would roll alot faster than normal.. if it just jumped time a notch or two it would still act like it was trying to start.. a chrankshaft sensor is a place to start.. but check to see if its firing first before y ... 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

2003 aerio start in morning, runs, go for a drive to make sure warmed up. Stopped turned the car off. Waited a few minutes, starts no problem. Let the car cool for about 3 hours, out side temp is a Balmy +4 Celsius, should be no problem in alberta. After 3 hour cool off wont start. This happened the other day also at the Walmart, would not start. Left it over night, and it started No problem in the morning. Made sure ground conections were good at battery terminal. One of Lifes Little Mysteries.
Sounds like a fuel problem. Check the filter - replace if not replaced before. If you hear the fuel pump working when it still won't start - try spraying some WD40 into the intake - this should cause it to try to start if it is fuel. If it is electri ... Suzuki Aerio
My daughter was driving her 08 Eclipse, it just stopped running on the highway. It wouldn't start back. The starter wont engage now. Starter motor just turns. She said it made a funny noise before it quit running. Sounded like someone threw gravel on the front of the car? Anyone help?
Usually when the starter won't engage, it is because of a misalignment of the teeth in the flywheel. Sometimes just turning the engine over by hand, a quarter turn or less even, allows it to start up just fine. If not, then it is probably the start ... 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse
2002 Rendezvous When I put the key in the ignition and start turning it, the car starts before the ignition is fully turned. Once running it sounds like the starter is trying to turn over when the car is in Drive and Neutral (a really loud grinding noise that stops in Drive And Revers). Also, the mileage lights up before the car is started, the doors will lock when the key is not in the ignition, and the A/C will not run...help?!?
The first thing I would do is be sure that your ignition switch is not shorting out, then I would be looking at the solenoid on the starter. The solenoid is the most common thing that fails and causes this to happen, eventually it will burn out and t ... 2002 Buick Rendezvous

I have a 2004 Kia Optima 4-cyl w/AT. I was driving about an hour ago. The car was running fine and I made a left turn. All at once the car started running rough. Then the check engine light came on, but would go off if I left off the gas (although the engine still ran rough). A minute or so later I stopped at a stop sign. I turned the car off and cranked it up again. Still ran rough, and now the light stays on. Could this be a simple fix? About 64,000 miles on the car.

When i drive my chrysler cirrus 98' the RPM's race up and down and the motor revs up also. it mostly does it when the car is running for a while. when the rpms are racing up and down, and the car shuts off, it wont turn back on. If it does turn back on, then the rpms will continue to race when you try to drive it. Some days it acts completly normal and drives fine, other days you cant even drive a mile without it turning off 5 mins after you drive it. any answers? thanks
Is the check engine light on? If so it may be the idle air control motor that needs to be cleaned or replaced. ... 1998 Chrysler Cirrus

With new plugs wires and coil in place it probably wouldn't hurt to make sure that you are actually getting spark. Pull a plug and ground it DON'T USE YOUR HANDS TO HOLD IT. Then have someone turn over the motor for you as you watch. A ... 2001 Hyundai Accent

93 Dodge Shadow 2.2l started having issue of running then dying, replaced fuel pump and filter. Car ran till warm up, shut it down to clean up for a test drive, stalled and now wont start, cranks but no start. When the key turned on I hear the pump work(prime the line) then it stops.
I would look for spark, you may have an ignition problem. it would be a sensor that goes into your distributor, the plug should be a round one with i believe 4 wires. ... 1993 Dodge Shadow

Oil is fine and when i turned key to on the temperature gauge was over hot, next day car tries to turn over but

The root cause may be a batch of dirty gas, aggravated by a fuel filter that was long overdue for change. I would start by replacing the fuel filter. then replace the injectors that feed the fuel-drenched cylinders. Those injectors have contamination ... Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a 1999 Jeep cherokee Classic. My wife is the only one who has had problems with it. She says when she drives it she will be driving down the road and the engine will stop running. Its not electrical because the radio and A/C still work. The check engine light comes on when the car dies. After the car comes to a stop she turns the ignition and starts the car back up and the check engine light goes off again. Any suggestions?
