Last night I started it up and it started ok but with a bad vibration, so bad as to vibrate the entire cab and bed. Started it later, with lots of trouble having to crank it a few times, and attempted to drive it. I got to the end of the street and took my foot off the gas to turn it and it stalled. Got it going again and again it stalled when i took my foot off the gas. It does have white smoke coming out of the exhaust that smells like unspent gas, and it has white smoke coming out of the engine itself but that smoke is intermittent. I have changed the spark plugs, swapped the battery, and checked the fuel injectors. The injectors are functioning correctly and the battery swap had no effect as did the new plugs. I also ran a test to see if the head gasket was broken. Took the cap off the coolant and cranked it to see if the coolant came up out of the pipe. It did not so it leads me to believe there is no excess pressure in the head gasket but I still smell the gas in the exhaust. I am thoroughly bested and I need some help.

What would cause the brake to be hard and the push button not to start the vehicle? Normally to start the vehicle I have to push the brake down and hit the push button and it starts. The push button is making a click noise and the check engine light appears to be on.

I just replaced spark plugs and wires, distributor cap, rotor button, pickup module, throttle position sensor, relays, fuel pump and finally the pcm after learning of the design flaw that causes them to overheat repeatedly. After driving for  about 30 mins all the gauges in the dash stopped working, the ABS light, air bag  and gas light came on and the engine was still running. When I pressed the gas pedal it would sputter (work, then not work) repeatedly like it was getting gas and then not getting any and I had 3/4 tank of gas. Got home and I could smell gas fumes on driver side. A friend took a look and said the fuel line clip is loose. I don’t know if all of these problems are due to the fuel line issue or if the new pcm I just spent $400 on is faulty. Please help.

Hi, when my truck has been running for awhile and you slow down completely at like a stop sign it boggles down and shuts off. The rpms lower then just stops. I am not sure what it could be. Could be multiple just wondering your best guess? Also after a couple minutes it fires right back up no problem and runs great.

okay so when i gt my car 2 1/2 yrs ago it ran but there was timing chain problems as well as strut and suspensin problems that were all fixed… there was also an electric probem when i would accelerate the car would die about 5 minutes after a full charge so i replaced the battery with a really good one and cleaned the corrosion off and also tested the wires or so i was told… well i just came back from indy to plate my car and drive it home and the battery is dead… there were no lights left on, no car door open and my key fob though its dead is in the house about 100 ft or so away……. I am tired of replacing my vehicle piece by piece so if anyone could give me correct information and not “well it could be this this this and 72 items and 10k later….. also i have a python car security pop out door system thing…. as well as a massive sound system that is currently disconnected as well as the radio the only thing that is not disconnected is the thing that makes all my speakers work but i dont think it has any power running to it…… but the wires run right through my center console….. and i dont have the patience to take each seat out nor do i have thin arms or a car lift……

batteries were thrown away due to dead cells and the amp and speakers have been disconnected as well as the radio

my main accessible electric.

Driver side running lights front and rear don’t work bulbs are fine. There seems to be just a single fuse for the running lights so that is OK. The van is modified by Braun to be wheel chair accesible but that doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the lights compared to a base van. Turn signal and emergency flashers work fine.

Have 2007 Dodge caliber base model no extras. Plane Jane. Anyhow got new battery thought old one kicked bucket after 6 months put new battery in everything worked. So now to find why old battery drained turned everything off took keys out and on the instrument cluster where it shows the manual transmission position P N D R L well this indication these lights all stayed on even after several minutes didn’t shut off with keys out? What’s going on? Any fix ideas? Hope it’s just a relay stuck or something.
Thanks. Scott.
