My 1997 Jeep Larado had the distributor brake at the braket that holds it in place. The jeep stopped running of course. I went and got a new distributor and brought the number 1 cylender to TDC and put the timeing mark on 0. The jeep turns over smooth but will not fire, I have spark coming out of the distributor. What am I missing.


If the distrubutor is definatley installed correctly, as you have some one crank the engine turn the distributor sightly counert clock-wise and clock-wise until the engine fires up. Then set the timing with a light. Double check the wires are in the ... 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I Have a 2000 gmc safari van 2wd The fuel pump stopped working so I replaced it. now cylinder 1 and 3 and not firing. So I looked at the plugs and they look good. I changed the wires but still no 1 and 3 firing. I get and p0135 error code (No 1 Ox sens) but that should not stop the plugs from firing. Could a vaccumm leak cause this or what? Thank you, Steven


The P0135 is indicating an O2 heater problem which is separate from your miss-fire problem.\015\012I would ask the obvious, are the #1 and 3 injector harnesses connected to the injectors? Have you check for a pulse at the suspect i ... 2000 GMC Safari

I have a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville 3.8 non supercharged. It is throwing the codes P0446, P0452, P0453. Yes it is throwing all of them and that is what is confusing me. Just reset the codes, did a start-stop-start-stop and got the 53 twice. Also, the fuel pressure isn't good, you hook up the gauge you get 0, when you turn the key on it jumps to 50 and as soon as the pump shuts off it goes back to 0, and when running it stays at about 47. I would greatly appreciate any help. and no my craftsman

91 Corvette - Service Engine lights, Speedometer goes (usually) to 0, Average miles per gal goes to 5Y5, engine stops. Engine cranks but will not start. Wait a bit, remove key, insert key and it will usually start. only code is 12 which is normal. (Speedometer sometimes goes to 108 or 17 instead of 0 - while sitting and Idleing) Can sometimes get out of engine stopping by flooring it - must be driving to do this.

My 94 Ranger 2.3L 4 cylinder would occasionally loose power when I was driving. Then it would start running fine again. It finally got a little worse, where I could stop when it was running rough so I could check it out. I put an inductive timing light on the plug wires. On the front coil 1 & 4 were firing while 2 & 3 weren't. On the back coil 2, 3, & 4 weren't firing. When it was running ok, all 4 were firing on the front coil, but on the back coil 3 & 4 still weren't firing. I'm not sure if th

I was driving into town, stopped at the stop sign at the end of my street, and when I hit the gas off the stop sign, the truck died. After 10 minutes or so of trying to start the truck, it fired up. Every time I tried to start, the engine turned over freely, and would sputter just enough for a shake. I drove for 3 miles with no problems, until it died again as I stopped at a stoplight. I had suspected the fuel filter from the beginning, so I went and bought a new fuel filter and swapped it out.


It still could be the fuel pump. Sometimes they don't just quit outright. Go to the vehicle. Reach through the open driver's side window. Turn the key forward to the run position. Listen toward the rear of the vehicle for the fuel pump to prime. ... 2003 Ford Expedition

Distributor problems?? I installed an accel distributor in my truck, found it was not compatible with computer for fuel injection. So, I went back to stock. I installed it found TDC aligned timing back to 0 noted the location of the distributor cap for number one firing position and connected wires in a clockwise fashion in the right firing order. Truck will not fire off now, I repeated the same steps three or more times, nothing. Any ideas?????


Are you certain you were on TDC of compression stroke? If you were on exhaust stroke, your dist. will be 180 degrees off.If timing is right, check for spark. You need to see a blue snapping spark at the end of the sparkplug wire to know ignitio ... 1989 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with a non V-Tec 4 cylinder that stalls when I do a fast deceleration and come to a stop. I can cruise along, hit the brakes hard to come to a stop, as it comes to a complete stop, it sputters and shuts off. Then it is hard to start back up right away. The idle speed is where it's supposed to be. It almost feels like it maybe floods over somehow. I'm not sure. The fuel pump is new, new plugs and good fire on all of them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Check the power brake booster for holding a vacuum. It may have a small leak when the brakes are not applied and a larger leak when they are applied. Check the EGR valve for sticking open or for a leaky vacuum diaphragm. ... 1996 Honda Accord

2007 Elantra...This is my third winter with the car and I was always suspect about the abs braking. once the abs system kicks in ( grinding sounds as I apply the brakes on a snowy road) the car shows no intention of stopping...On several occasions I've rolled through stop signs. My only hope of stopping then is to pump the brake hoping that one of the times the abs doesn't kick or as in one instance, to prevent hitting a car in front of me, applying the hand brake. At first I thought it was jus

Today i found that the reason my car has been leaking oil is because my oil cap was gone!! the engine was dry this morning and clunking. I immediately parked it and added oil and a stabilizer. when i turned the car on it immediately stopped clunking but when moving from a completely stopped position it clunks some and then stops. Noticed it happens when I turn a corner too some. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to prepare myself for the worst:0(
