Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The real problem is that the motor spins but does not turnover. The fuel pump fuse was loose and now the fuel pump is running and I now have fuel pressure. What is the next step, I have not checked the relays yet
Expert:  car tech replied 4 years ago.
if the pump is running and you have pressure it has nothing to do with the relay i would recomend checking for voltage at the fuel injectors
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
not gettin any spark to spark plug
Expert:  car tech replied 4 years ago.
let me look up the ignition on this one
Expert:  car tech replied 4 years ago.

PO743 AND P1870 I READ THESE A YEAR AGO, DON;T KNOW HOW VALID THEY ARE, WHAT DO THEY MEAN
Expert:  car tech replied 4 years ago.
po743 is for the tourqe converter clutch solinoid not the current issue and 1870 is transmission control module again not the current issue can you get a code reader and scan for current codes
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
GETTING SPARK NOW, IT STARTS AND SHUTS OFF-STARTS AND SHUTS OFF, ECT. WILL NOT STAY RUNNING
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
HAVE GAS PRESSURE, BUT NOT ENOUGH TO KEEP RUNNING, COULD THAT BE THE FUEL FILTER NEEDS TO BE CHANGED
Expert:  car tech replied 4 years ago.
it may be shutting the fuel off with the security system after it starts i would recomend a fuel pressure test to see how much pressure it has when you turn the key on and a new scan for codes this will help us determine the problem
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
THE SECURITY IS ON WHEN I AM TRYING TO START THE CAR, IS THERE A WAY TO DISARM THE SYSTEM?
Expert:  car tech replied 4 years ago.
this will take me some time to get that info this car is a little harder togather info on so i will have to get back to you
