Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • WORK TIME, I am here 7 days a week but not all hours of the day, do not worry I will respond.
  • FEES, I am user of the website like you, not an employee. Any fee or account questions need to be addressed to the website.
  • PHONE CALLS, I will never offer nor ask you to pay more for a call, calls and memberships are pushed by the website..
  • UPLOADED LINKS, if I upload dropbox links, without the phone app use the box in the top right for direct download.
  • RATING ANSWERS, please let me know what you need from me so you are pleased with my answer.

Do you know if there are codes stored?

Have you checked the fuel pressure and compression?

No I haven't been able to move it but the engine light is on and the manual said that has to do with the ems system I think i said it right
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'll have to look At MANUAL AGAIN To See If I Said THAT right

Do you have the tools or skills to check the things I asked about?

I had tested at autozone months ago and got a code when it first died on me in traffic
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I lost that code but they also said I need to take to have put on a better tester cause it just listed possible reasons with them
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No I don't

I do not have much to go on here to diagnose what is wrong and you are not able to do the tests we need. Let me know what would help you best and what help from me would you appreciate?

I also cleaned the mass air sensor and hoses

Did you read my response a moment ago and can you respond to it.

Well I'm not sure wat to do
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I want to know where the gas filter is and how to change it
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Then change mass air flow sensor and throttle sensor
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I also wanted to know if sounded like maybe spark plugs before I have them changed

This model doe snot have an external serviceable fuel filter. The filter is inside the tank attached to the pump.

Since it runs briefly I doubt it is ignition spark related. Though that does not mean servicing them may not be needed.

The path you are taking guessing at parts to check and replace is going to get expensive. You need someone whom can do all the tests I mentioned in my first reply. That will get you in the right direction to see what repairs are needed to prevent replacing good parts.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

when I get the tests done and come back here does that mean I will be charged again.

No you will not be charged again. You have already paid all the fees due to get help from me. You have not yet rated the post which pays me. Once you rate this post will stay open forever and you can reply anytime.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok that's all I wanted to know so I can rate and come back after I get the codes

Yes, I want you to return and want to help you get this addressed.

Ok thank you and I'm going to buy the gauges but not sure I can test them if car won't start
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It's been 2 days and it won't turnover

Just reply when you have the tools or time to do the inspections or if you get stuck doing them.
