91 GMC c1500 4.3l... I have an intermittent charge problem, gauge and dummy light read low, accessories start to dim... I had system tested, all ok, still replaced battery, alternator, and belt. I threw the wires out, installed new grounds, directly to alternator, and new power wire from alternator to junction box, and straight to battery. Clueless as to why still having problem any advice?

I have a 1993 Ford Tempo manual transmission and it won't start. For about two weeks before it stopped starting it would start fine sometimes, other times it wouldn't start at all and then sometimes it would start and then quickly stall thereafter as if it ran out of gas. I checked the sparkplugs and wires and they are okay. I replaced the fuel filter and the gas that came out of the old one was quite dirty. The car however still won't start.

I was having trouble starting a 2003 Kia Sorento. With 150000 miles on it I was told to replace the fuel filter.

Mazda misfire My car wouldn't start about 3 weeks ago. I replaced the distributor, as there was no spark, and it started right up. It sputters going uphill, or if I accelerate too fast. I replaced spark plugs and wires, fuel filter, fuel pump, and am still having the same issue. When I took it to autozone (before replacing the wires) their codes came up as a misfire in cylinder #4, and O2 sensor 2. Could an oxygen sensor cause this? After replacing the plugs, the code for the misfire didn'

Fuel Problems To whom it may concern: I have recently developed a problem with my fuel system. I purchased some fuel from a common place and come to find out that the fuel filter had obtained the water. I then replaced the filter and now it died again and would not start could it be that it might either be the electrical grounding out or could it be i need to drain the fuel tank and start with a new one and replace the filter again? any help with this situation would be much appreciated.


I think the tank has water and you will probably have to drain it. There are water removal fuel additives on the market, but I do not know if they work or not. you can buy them at any autoparts store. ... 2004 Ford Focus

My car is a 90 and the Fuses started to blow for the fuel pump. Replaced the fuel pump, filter, fuse, then checked all the wiring up to and including the injector plug then replaced the injector plug as well. Drove the car ten minutes and all was well until I let off the fuel and the fuses started blowing again. Checked all the wiring again and still seems fine from front to back.

My 98 Chevy Metro will only start after it has sat for two hours or more. It starts right up in the morning, but if I make a quick stop, it won't start back up. Friends have advised I replace the spark plugs and ignition wires, which I did and there was no change. Another friend said I should replace the started, which I also did, but still no change.

1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme won't start. It does try to start but stops immediatly. I have replaced the sparkplug wires and the fuel filter but still wont start.
