     Please read so we can help you  

Hello and welcome to our forum. This is a starting point for all questions that are posted. We have a hard time trying to get information to help you fix your vehicle. We NEED all the information you can give to us to help you. Remember, we do not have the vehicle in front of us and have our diagnostic tools hooked up. So please supply the following information:

Year of vehicle
Make of vehicle (Ford/ Chevrolet)
Model of vehicle ( Taurus/ Cavalier)
Engine size (2.0/ 5.7)
Mileage/Kilometers

Then describe what the vehicle is or is not doing. Do not say "CAR WILL NOT START, REPLACED FUSE, STILL WON'T START. WHAT IS WRONG?" We need to know what lead up to the car not starting. -- Lights started dimming and then car died. -- Just running down the road and the vehicle stopped running. --Made some noises and it died.

Then we need what you have tried so far. Replaced battery -- replaced fuel filter -- replaced relay. What have you done to try to correct the problem? We need to know these things so we do not have to suggest something that you have already have done. That helps neither one of us. It just takes up more time. We really want to help you and want you to come back here for your advice.

If you think it is a fuel problem, please have the fuel pressure readings when posting. If you think it is spark, be sure you have checked to see if spark is actually going across the spark plugs.

If you just don't know for sure, we will assist you as best as we can, but the more information we have, the better information we can give you.

PLEASE LOOK AT DATE OF POSTS!!!!! If it is over a few weeks old, you probably are not going to get an answer. Please respond to newer threads. Do not attach your problem to another post. Please start a new thread.

Thank you for reading and please help us help you. I am sure DanD, Tom Greenleaf, Dr. Electrics and the others here agree with this.

OK Let's fix your car. way2old
