What do you mean he fixed your water?

Oh I meant he fixed my water pump

That has nothing to do with the ECM

He says it won't idle! What could be wrong? It worked fine until that!

The first thing I would check is for a vacuum leak. Chances are he knocked a vacuum hose off when he was working on the pump.

Okay thank you! I will do that! Could there be anything else wrong with it? It starts but when it goes into gear it cuts off.

Check the idle air control valve (IAC). It is on the throttle body and is responsible for the idle.

Let me know what you find.

I will thank you so much!
