93 Dodge Shadow suddenly not starting


Hello. I am hoping someone can help me out with my 93 dodge shadow. It has 145k miles with a recently rebuilt engine, new heads and transmission. Since I have had the car it has always had a little bit of "hesitation" every now and then but its never been that bad. I'm not sure if this hesitation is related to my current problems or not, but it recently started to overheat alot, so I had the entire cooling system replaced but it is still overheating sometimes and there is some kind of liquid pouring into the car on the passenger side floorboard (condensation?). I notice this mostly when the AC is on. Then my brakes suddenly went out as I was going down the road. I got the car safely off the road but now it wont start. I am at a loss, and I dont know much about cars but I thought perhaps it was a bad fuel pump? Please help.

Do you
have the same problem?

Ok first thing, liquid on the floor board could be a sign of a leaking heater core, which yes, will result in the vehicle overheating due to the loss of coolant. Now the brakes on the other hand has nothing to do with the coolant leak. You either have a leaking wheel cylinder, caliper, brake hose, or a faulty master cylinder that will give you brake failure. Anyway let me know what you find :wink:

Was this
