Hello and thank you for your question. My name is James.

I don't think your entire question came through on the page. Do you have the trouble codes handy?

Can you give me some better symptoms like was is seen, felt, heard, from starting the vehicle to getting up to 55mph if it will?

Do you know how to do electrical diag, we need to pick one of the codes, diagnose it and see how many issues that resolves.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

Thanks Chris
