I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problemwith the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computerdata/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. I am also going todirect you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it.Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.
the next step is a scan test to see what faults are stored in the engine computer . need to narrow down the issue!!
let me know what codes are stored!
i understand what are you saying but that would take alot of time to check . that is why the scan test would be beneficial and shorten the list to a couple of things than over 20 things. autozone does a free scan!!!
Alan the phone call service is a premium service. Due to site regulations if you want the phone call a premium service must be accepted and we can continue!!
alan so you have wht Pxxxx code?
Alan i can lead you to numerous checks here and there and most likely you will be in the same spot when you began with no fix. That code number has meaning of which way to go in diagnosis
example p0301 misfire #1 cylonder 004 and p1296 malfunction in cooling system 000 the p # and the 3 digit # narrows down if it is a short, open , operation fault, range performance fault , etc......
i do not want to waste your time on this and not get anywhere . I do hope you understand. so the code #'s and the 3 digit # is needed to get you in the exact area of testing and the right test plan.
