Question From Guest on fuel injector

I pulled the fuel injector from my 93 plymouth acclaim I am trying to test it with a 12 volt power supply, the problem is I have no idea what a properly functioning fuel injector is suppossed to sound like, please help.

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

I'm assuming that this is the 2.5L engine, since you stated that you "pulled the injector"? You can do as you were intending, but no longer than 5 seconds at a time. All an injector is, is an electric solenoid that opens and closes when power is supplied. You'll hear a very rapid clicking noise, almost a hum. What kind of symptoms are you dealing with? Those type injectors very seldom go bad. Take a resistance check of the injector. If memory serves, it should be in the 14-16 ohms range at room temp.

Response From Guest Top Rated Answer

The reason for removing the injector was because the car would not start after two days sitting in minus 30 degrees. I had figured it was frozen fuel lines but after removing a gas line that lead directly to the throtle body I had pressure and gas. After trying to start the car twice i quickly removed the injector cover to look in side and found that the top of the injector had some liquid residue which i believe to be gas.this led me to believe that the gas was entering the injector but not exiting. I removed it to test it and to let it thaw if being frozen closed was the problem. I have tested it and it does make a distinctive clicking noise. Thank you for telling me no more than five seconds because left to my own devices i would surely have tested it until it broke.

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

If you've got fuel to the injector, but none coming out, I'd suspect the crank sensor, which on the 2.5, I believe, is in the distributor. Check for injector pulse during crank. If you don't have one, a Noid light should be available at your local parts store.

Response From Guest

on reinstalling the injector i slipped a piece of paper under the nozzle and tried to start the car when i checked the paper it had been sprayed but car did not start when i removed the paper and tried again I also replaced the plugs because they were quite old and worn but still nothing. The car did not seem to fire at all but i removed several of the plugs to examine them and they seem to show signs of having fired. Because they were perfectly new i took a slight discouloration of the electrode to mean that it had fired. The last time the car started it was quite rough and ran for just a few seconds and then died. It was this that led me to make my original erroneous diagnosis of lack of fuel or injector blockage

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

Have you checked for injector pulse, yet? Have you taken a fuel pressure test? Have you checked for available voltage from coil? You can have fuel coming from the injector, could be NOT enough or TOO much. Fuel pressure could be too low, although this is a low pressure system. You could have spark to the plugs, but not hot enough to fire. You are going to need: Noid light, fuel pressure guage, and spark tester. Do the tests, then post the results, and we can go from there.

1988 Plymouth Reliant K won't start

Question From ashleyv829 on 1988 Plymouth Reliant K won't start

My Sister has a 1988 plymouth Reliant K with a fuel injector. Two days ago she completly ran out of gas. We have put 3-5 gallons of gas in. we charged the battery and primed it( turning the key to right before you would crank the engine keeping it there for about 5 seconds and repeating the process 3-5 times) It cranks like its going to start but it just doesnt.....what do i do?

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

In tank fuel pumps are cooled and lubricated by the fuel in the tank. When you run a car out of gas, it pumps a lot of air through the pump which overheats it and causes some severe wear and many times, failure when they cool off.
You will need to use a fuel pressure gauge to verify this

Response From re-tired

The first thing is stop making mutiple post on same subject. OK ,when you turn key on have a helper take fuel cap off and listen for a hum for a few seconds. If no hum ,reach under and firmly smack the bottom of tank while helper cranks car. If car starts you will need a new pump.

breeze idling rough& pulling at stops

Showing 3 out of 24 Posts | Show 21 Hidden Posts
Question From RoughBreezing on breeze idling rough& pulling at stops

I have a 1997 plymouth breeze 2.0 SOHC with auto 4 speed tranny I got about a month ago it has 142500 on the odometer. I have two major problems with it...

1) When I am coming to a stop I feel the car shift to what should be neutral as I reach 3-4 MPH, then the car starts pulling itself forward in small bounces like I'm in a 5 speed and forgot to hit the clutch. It has stalled the engine a couple times but for the most part it doesn't...

2)the idle is pretty rough at times and vibrates the steering
wheel badly it has a chugging sound to it but still runs at 750 RPM I have seen it raise the rpm just a hair and the chugging stops and the engine is pretty smooth I was going to adjust the idle air screw but there is none and no MAF sensor to clean. If i rev the engine a bit it has a problem catching itself and will often stall even in gear in stop and go traffic when I start the car the RPMs go up and then drop to 500 or less then even out.

Both of these problems seem to come and go or at least get worse /better at times. I cleaned the throttle body the plugs and wires are ok aside from a bit of oil leaking into the plug compartment that I clean out regularly I used a bunch of fuel injector cleaner. The exhaust doesn't smell very rich or lean. I can't find a vac leak and the egr valve seems to be working properly the CAT rattles and I'm thinking about tapping it out. the car seems to run better when completely topped off with oil. all fluid levels are good and I'm sure there would be an engine light but its burnt out

Long post I know thanks in advance for any help

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Code reading would help now. If bulbs don't light as a bulb check with just key to "run" or some just while cranking perhaps that is a problem,

T

Response From Discretesignals

I agree with Tom, you need to have the computer scanned. Write down the code numbers.

Number 1 sound like the symptoms of a torque converter clutch staying engaged when coming to a stop.

aside from a bit of oil leaking into the plug compartment that I clean out regularly I used a bunch of fuel injector cleaner.

If you mean that oil is leaking into the spark plug wells, you need to replace the valve cover gasket and tube seals.


Hollow a cat out? I didn't just read that did I?

Response From RoughBreezing

Ok so I took the car to advanced auto and had it read its throwing codes P0403 and P1390. I believe he said an egr valve flow problem and something about a misfire for the second. I don't have a lot of money to throw at the car, but I guess my first step is to replace the valve cover gaskets, plugs and wires and see if it gets rid of the misfire(which i don't hear or feel at speed, does that make sense?). As far as the egr valve goes should I be able to see it move when revving the engine? And does anyone know where to find a diagram of which hoses are the vac hoses so I can check them better? Also I was convinced it was the torque converter lockup sticking too from how its acting and I still kinda think it is. wouldn't the car have reported it by now though? Thanks for the help!

Oh and I thought maybe the cat was clogged and tapping it out is free (Sorry ozone). its my girls only transport and I could really use a cheap fix as were tight on cash for another month or so and she is afraid to drive it, heaven forbid it stalls :)

Response From Hammer Time

Misfire? I don't see any misfire code.

The P1390 says your timing belt jumped and you have an EGR issue.
Your first step is to immediately stop trying to run it and replace the timing belt.

Response From Discretesignals

One common problem on those engines that sets that P1390 is a sheared cam sprocket dowel pin. Pull the cover off and inspect the pin too.

Response From RoughBreezing

Is it possible I can re align the timing belt if its not bad or will I have to get a new one? I guess they can't cost all that much. The sheared cam sprocket, I'm assuming you mean under the valve cover...will it be easily noticable to a mechanical mind with limited car experience?

Response From Hammer Time

To add to that, no, you definitely don't want to re-use the belt and you should also replace the tensioner and water pump while in there.

My moms b/f is a retired mechanic and he already offered to help change the valve cover gasket and tube seals I'm sure he will do the timing belt too but all I can find in way of timing belts is full kits for 250 and up is it possible to just get the belt? I only have about 250 total to throw at it and I need to get gaskets plugs wires and the timing belt. Will 250 cover that if I can get the work done for free? EGR will have to wait a bit I guess.

Let me make this perfectly clear to you. If you skimp on this job or make even a small mistake in installing it, you will be looking at a couple thousand in repairs. This engine is not forgiving. One turn of the engine with the belt out of time will bend nearly every valve. If this guy has been retired for more than a few years, he will not be familiar enough with doing this job.
I recommend you pay a shop to do this.

Response From nickwarner

Park it until you can pay a pro to do this or let the other guy send it to the scrapyard. I know it sucks to be broke but HT and DS can tell you the same horror stories I can of people who thought they could save a buck with having any so-called mechanic fic this motor. Just being able to fix some brakes or a radiator doesn't make you a true tech. Thats what we give to junior techs and even they screw the pooch from time to time. This isn't something for someone who isn't fully versed in late model engines with the toolset to go with it.

Wonder why its so damn expensive to see a mechanic for this? Thank Chrysler.

Response From RoughBreezing

Taking it to a shop probably won't be an option for me unfortunately. I was charged over 700 bucks for brake shoes engine mount windshield wipers and inspection! My options here are going to be junk it, run it into the ground or take it to my moms b/f (he's 60 and retired pretty close to 3 years now but because his spine is deteriorating not because of incompetence). at least ill have a shot at keeping it on the street with option 3 and at the very least this can be a 'what not to do to your car' post. At any rate ill keep updating this thread with any major happenings until its fixed or in the junk yard just so the information is out there.

PS: I'm not purposely ignoring you guys' advice. I just really am that broke. Thanks a million for pointing me in the right direction I would have been trying to solve a misfire problem that was really only the tip of the iceberg.

Response From Hammer Time

Being broke is not going to make this job turn out any better. If he has back problems, this is not the job to try.

Here is one thing you can do for not a lot of money. Do to www.alldataDIY.com and get a year subscription to this car. I think its about $25. Haynes manuals don't cut it and if this guy was a pro at a good shop he has used it before. This is the data provider we all use and it costs a shop several hundred a month to have access to the whole database. Let him read through the procedure carefully and see what special tools are involved. Then he can make an informed decision as to if he can do this or not. If he can't, see if you can place decently in a demo derby because you have very little time til boom to get some cash together for another car and may as well have fun with it for the last hurrah.

If he hasn't used Alldata before, don't let him do the job. This isn't a riding lawnmower or the cars we had 20 years ago. The warnings we have given are for good reason and we have all seen wrecked engines from novices attempting to save a buck or buying just a belt instead of the kit. Your $30 water pump can and will wreck your head when it takes out the timing belt and you won't get any warning.

Response From RoughBreezing

I messaged him earlier and described what was going on and asked if he was comfortable replacing the timing belt if it wasn't a sheared cam sprocket pin. he goes to sleep early so I should have an answer in the morning. I didn't read about the alldataDIY till after I messaged him but ill be sure to ask him about it and ask if he would want me to subscribe.

Also, would a bad cam/crankshaft sensor throw the same code (P1390) or does it generate its own code? Is there any way to check them without a volt/multimeter?

We have told you exactly what that code means. If it could mean something else, we would have told you that.

Response From RoughBreezing

Turns out the timing belt assembly is brand new but the cam shaft is just less than a half tooth to the right when TDC. We didn't have a puller for the large pully so we couldn't adjust it though. I was messing with the EGR valve today and its functioning but not completely closing. When I hold it closed with a screw driver the idle stops chugging and sounds great. Do you think its carbon buildup since I can still press it closed or would a vac leak do the same thing? I'm planning on taking it off tomorrow and taking a look at it. ill post my findings

The car has been being drivin this whole time. Since the assembly is new I'm just going to take my chances with it especially after hearing how nice the idle was with the egr closed

Response From nickwarner

If you can push that EGR valve manually and make all troubles cease, you pretty much confirmed the issue. They can and do get sticky with age. I'd swap it out and good luck with the car. Thanks for coming back to post the fix, helps plenty of people who search older posts for similar info on their cars.

Response From RoughBreezing

The garage that did the timing belt before I owned the car, also charged me for turned rotors and new brake pads which they never actually touched... Never going to them again. Sad thing is they are a pretty established business here in central PA. Anyway, I'm not sure what the valve positioning would be at ignition with it being off that little bit but my moms b/f said it could already have a slightly bent valve but I'm assuming it will run as is untill the new assembly starts going bad right? I can definately live with how the engine sounds with the egr closed. And since it was hopping to the chug of the engine I'm hoping it will cure that too or at least dampen it. I was going to take it off and look at it but the seal to the exit of the egr looks pretty rough so ill have to wait till I get an extra hundred or so for a new unit. Some people online said you can clean them but mine looks original so its probably way past that point.

Response From nickwarner

If you had a bent valve you would have a dead miss on the cylinder and no EGR valve would help, just a new head. By the fact it runs better when you are manually closing the EGR points me toward a bad valve. Don't bother trying to clean it. Once it gets to this point new is the only way to go.

Response From RoughBreezing

Thanks for all the help! I should be able to swing a hundred with my next pay and close this thread for good hopefully.

Response From Discretesignals

I suggest you take it to your local mechanic and have them check it out. If you haven't ever done a timing belt change before, that engine isn't one you want learn on. You get it wrong and you'll end up with major engine damage and one pissed off GF. You won't be able to see a sheared dowel until you remove the cam sprocket.


edit: If it hasn't ever seen a timing belt replacement and you have 140K something on it, it is way overdue.

Response From RoughBreezing

Hmm the guy said something about a misfire for the second definately nothing about a timing belt. Does the head have to come off to get to the timing belt?

Response From Hammer Time

No, it doesn't.

The only way it could be a misfire code is if you transposed the numbers from PO304 to PO403 but the other code is still a timing belt problem and that can cause a misfire.

Question From Guest on Engine cutting out.......

I have a 1993 Chrylser New Yorker, 6 cyl. I thought it had a transmission problem, that's what the wife kept telling me. I was riding in the car yesterday and the problem began acting up, this was the first time I have been in this car when this problem was happening, it sounds like a fuel problem, not the transmission. You'll be driving along at 55 mph and the car will start slowing up, the motor RPM's start dropping. The motor will seem to cut out then run again, rev up, then drop, it's just like it's running out of gas. If you pull over and shut the car off, then turn it back on, sometimes this will correct the problem, sometimes it takes 3-4 times. Any ideas?

Response From Guest

I was reading about your problem. Did you ever find out what it was exactly? I am having the same issues with my 07 saturn vue and the dealership can't "replicate" the problem, so they say there isn't anything wrong. Any info would be helpful! Thanks

Response From Guest Top Rated Answer

I had a 1990 Plymouth Acclaim with the 2.5ltr 4 cyl engine. It quit while I was driving 55mph; it was ten years ago now but I think it did not sputter like yours; I think it was a drop-off-the-cliff shut off. However, for what it is worth, mine was a "pick up plate"--an adjunct to the distributor that helps supply the power for the sparks. The problem was very intermitant--all of a sudden power was gone and the engine shut off. The part was very easy to change and was less than $50.

If that is not it, you could go the fuel route--filter, check fuel pressure (fuel pump), fuel injectors...so many possibilities there.

Good luck.
