I rebuild the engine and it was running for 7 days. Now it doesn't want to start. I replaced the intake runner sensor, (2) camshaft sensors. The TPS light blinking and won't start. I checked all fuses, and they are okay. It has no spark and no injectors power. Is the crankshaft sensor related to spar or the injectors?
Do you
have the same problem?

Have you checked all connections at the PCM? Have you checked the auto shutdown relay and fuses? Is the starter turning the engine or not responding?

Let's start by checking fuse 26 in the under-hood fuse box and the ASD relay. In addition to checking the fuse, confirm there is power to it.

Here are two links you may find helpful when checking:

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-check-a-car-fuse

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-check-an-electrical-relay-and-wiring-control-circuit

I attached a pic below of the fuse box and highlighted the fuse to check.

Let me know what you find.

Hi,

The runner is stuck open. Have you been able to get that repaired? Also, the P2015 is related to the throttle pedal assembly. Have you done anything with that yet? I'm not sure what you mean by threado body. If you meant throttle body, don't do that until we go through the diagnostics for the present codes

Let me know.

Hi,

You would be amazed how many faulty parts I see people getting online. I have a feeling that is the issue.

If possible, let me know if that takes care of the issue. I'm interested in knowing.

Hi,

I noticed I haven't heard from you for a couple of days. I was wondering if the parts came in and how things worked out for you.

If you haven't received them yet, no need to get back to me until they do. I'm just interested in knowing.

Take care,

Joe

Hi Joe, everything was going well, fix the engine intake runners, and now po700 and po755 are on. The transmission is not shifting at all. I changed the filter and transmission fluid, from this point I need help. I do not feel like pulling the transmission out and spending more money for new transmission. Help!

Hi,

You have the same kind of luck I have with my personal vehicles. LOL It never ends.

As far as the question is concerned, I have a favor to ask. We try to keep the threads specific to one topic, so it is more helpful to others. Is it possible for you to copy your new question related to the transmission to a new post?

Here is the link to start a new one:

https://www.2carpros.com/questions/new

I hope you understand. I will watch for the new question.

Take care,

Joe
