Ignition switch relay most time up under the dash by steering column or a CPU/ECM did you have a check engine light on taht stayed on all the time.

Yes it's been on and I am so frustrated with this vehicle


There is a sensor that tells the Computer if the throttle is open or not if its dirty it can tell the computer its not open and will not let the car get fuel not sure about spark. Its in the throttle body in fact there is one in the throttle body and one just behind it in the intake I would take some throttle body cleaner and clean them and put on new gaskets. After re reading your post I would check all connections and ground to engine/frame


If the check light was on you can borrow a scanner or get a cheap on and still read it, but if it was on before the head gasket fix it may have nothing to do with this issue.


did the car even run after the head gasket fix.

Yes for over a month it ran just fine I went to the gas station put $10 of gas in it came home went to sleep I was actually planning to do my brakes in the morning when I got outside to the car over all it did was crank the pump works because I took the fuel pump out and checked the pump itself and its fine I also just did the spark plugs a couple months ago so that shouldn't be a problem either


Is it cranking over real fast or normal, and when I say real fast I mean faster than normal like it got no compression. I would still check those sensors as I said in my other post too. If that new gasket has let go somewhere it may be loosing compression and too much to crank just an Idea, of course check all connections & fuses.

Hey thank you guys all so much if anybody else has any opinions please feel free to let me know it's not cranking faster than normal it sounds just as it did before I'm definitely going to checked all my fuses and relays again like before but I have not clean the CPU unit so I will do that next butt as I was asking before is there a relay that controls both the fuel pump and Spark of the engine


Check your main fuse,s ECM?
