Have the fuel pressure checked after it sets over for a few hours.

it is very possible that when the pump/fuel level sender assembly was reinstalled, the fuel lever float binded preventing it from floating to indicate proper fuel level, or the fuel level sender plug isn't plugged in at the fuel pump.

You can exchange it with one that is inner cooled and turboed But thats $1500.00 in parts plus the engine and labor. Your best bet is to find out what is wrong with your engine and rebuild it. As long as there are no major damages.

Power windows work either by direct gears or through a cable attached to the motor. In most instances the cable brakes and you may have to by a complete unit. check with a spares department an decide on either a new one or one from the wreckers

The public library will have either "Alldata" or "Mitchell on Demand" which will show component locations for your car. Also some part stores can also tell you where that is located.

Ok....what do you want us to do about it? Take your car to a mechanic. Unless your just not pressing the clutch....

Rarely a fix for that --other than a rebuild

May want to have a trans shop check it out

I will guarantee you that they will want to rebuild it
necessary or not.

If it is original from 1997 then it's all over,go for for a reman
or rebuild yours

Going forward --- you change trans fluid as well as power steering,
every 3 years period, or keep your check book handy (all vehicles)

Hi there:
Two ways it could be a lack of fuel. Low fuel pressure or lack of injector pulse. Low fuel pressure is usually just a bad or weak fuel pump.. but you would want to check power to the pump when this happens before replacing it.

Injector pulse would be too low based on an input to the computer. These would include the coolant temp sensor, tps and mass air flow sensor.

Just a hit, sometimes the purge valve leaks fuel vapors into the intake and causes a hard start condition. However, this usually causes the engine to be flooded.. or have too much fuel or fuel vapors.

Other posibilitie could be the CKP (Crankshaft Position) sensor, but rare.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

need to check for transmission codes to make sure you don't have a bad shift solenoid if it an automatic. if it is a manual shift check the clutch disc for wear.

This is a situation where the onboard diagnostics is not monitoring the defective part. In this case you must trial and error a solution starting with the cheapest part or the most probable bad part.
In the old days a problem like yours would point to a bad coil. But many of the newer cars have coils on each sparkplug or 2 or more groups of coils. You then would have part of the system working and would find spark in part of the wiring.

Since you have no spark at all, a controlling part for the entire system must be bad. If you have but 1 coil on your model, change it. But look to other parts like Ignition relays, crankshaft or camshaft sensors or the Powertrain control module for defects.

You can get a fusebox or powerbox diagram at Autozone.com when registering your car for FREE. Then you will know where the proper Relay is if you do not have an Owners manual.

There may be a defect in the safety mode of the engine controls which are suppose to engage a LIMPHOME mode to keep you running when an engine overheats. It would be a defect if it killed the engine instead of limiting RPM and other dash indicators should light up.

Besides trying a new coil or Relay about all is left is an attached monitoring device which a Dealer mechanic would use to drive your car until it fails. These better monitoring devices record things directly and can bypass the onboard system, which allows previously unmonitored systems to be observed.

The failure is recorded on this added on device and it can make difficult to solve problems apparent to the mechanic. Sometimes it is the only way to catch a defect in he act. Depending on the parts prices, guessing can be more expensive than using this Dealer device.

If I was accurate, please let me know the outcome as some others may have future problems I can solve knowing this.

There is a special puller tools you may need if the pulley does not pull out after removing the center bolt. This puller has two bolts included in the kit that thread into two holes on the pulley to help extract it.
