    @6000 RPM ? WTF are you thinking. Is there a chance the CEL or SES (Service Engine soon) light is on? A PLAN - I would suggest you start by getting the system checked for codes.

    Truck cranks but won't start and no bus on odometer

    If you have a scanner lets see what is stored in PCM If not no buss often indicates a sensor is pulling down the system. unplugging sensors 1x 1 may have 'no buss' message go out and we can proceed. 1St is SRS airbag light on? Unplug TPS, Map, CKP, CMP one at a time and advise. Do not...

    2003 Volvo c70, I swapped the motors in this car because he blew up the motor, I think it blew up because it got to hot. New motor is in but the fans

    May not come on until ECT reaches a preset temp. Need to find out if AC commands fans OR no fan until a preset High psi. The fact the disconnected temp switch causes fan shows PCM is controlling the fans. Time permitting I will check volvo 'logic' and repost.

    Timing belt confusion... IIRC some states decided new vehicles had to 'last' without major repairs for X miles. So the manufacturer could build different engines to satisfy them OR do the math* and change the printed requirements for those states. I think NYS was a case in point, *...
