Customer Question

my 2000 dodge Durango w/360 gas engine has; new ecm, new plugs, and new injectors . ran fired beautiffly, was parked for a week. I tried to start it, it fired briefly, and that was the last gasp until the mechanics pulled the pcv from the valve cover. then it fired right up then died when thevalve was reinstalled
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: I said it died when the pcv valve was reinstalled
JA: Are you fixing your Durango yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: are you blind??? I told you what the shop had done previously, all since the second week of January this year.
JA: I hope not. Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: it has a new pcv valve

like I have told you people, it's in a shop. I'm not that good on a computer and feel that I've given you plenty of info, this is a reputable shop and they have checked everything and they are getting nowhere
