Yes... the 'firing' is the fuel combusting in the chamber being ignited by the spark plugs.... No fuel? no fire.

It's possible that you are trying to connect to the High pressure side of the a/c. You need to connect to the Low side connector. The connections look the same, but are different.

Group 7 oil filter oil filter number V1A will screw on just check seal (o-ring) on oil filter to old one. Should work you will just have to add more oil due to the size if oil filter.

sounds like fuel line, or a blockage at the throttle body

1999 Chevrolet... | Answered on Jun 14, 2010

Your problem sounds a lot like what some older Chrysler cars used to do when they had carburetors and chokes.
What would happen is that the choke would open a bit early and if the timing of that event coincided with a stop, since the engine was a bit lean at that point, it would stall. (otherwise you could drive right through it and never have a problem).
With an injected engine, the same fuel air ratio needs to be maintained, but it is done differently. In a carbureted engine limiting the air supply would richen up the mixture. In an injected engine, instead of limiting the air supply, more fuel is added instead.
This is controlled by the computer which reads the signal from the coolant temperature sensor and "knows when the engine is hot enough to stop adding fuel. If the coolant sensor is slightly out of range, you may get to a point where the computer "thinks" you are up to temp, but you are not.
So the conclusion would logically be to replace the temp sending unit...but not always. A thermostat that is not operating perfectly, a slight vacuum leak, a slight egr valve leak, a slight problem with the idle control motor, a glitch in the throttle position sensor or dirt on the wires inside the bore of the mass air flow sensor can also change the composition of the air fuel ratio, as can a bad spray pattern from an injector or two.
I'd begin by replacing the thermostat and temp sending unit, then follow up with careful testing of all the components I mentioned, using a haynes or chilton manual as a test guide.
One not factory recommended way of cleaning out the fuel system is to add 3oz of acetone per 10gal of fuel. Acetone will change the vaporization rate of the fuel and cleans as it passes through the system I've personally tested this and contrary to what has been said about damage it can cause, it has never caused a failure anywhere in any system I've used it in. (even at higher concentrations)
You asked for ideas...so I gave you a bunch of them.
Just don't go replacing everything without testing...that is a waste of time and can get really expensive.
Good luck!

Could be a bearing or the ring and pinion gear. I would check the fluid level of the rear end. I would stay away from it, it could be a bit pricey to fix.

ALL serpentine belts have a tension pulley which holds the belt tight to the various equipment it turns (water pump, alternator, a/c compressor, etc). Find the one spot where the belt goes over a component that has nothing connected to it, and you have found the belt tensioner. The tensioner is designer with a nut on the face of it so that you can put a socket wrench on it; by 'unscrewing' the socket wrench, you should be able to release the tension on the belt - it will take some pressure to release. Once you have tested this, you can pull onthe socket wrench and remove the belt; replace it witha new one and take off the socket wrench. Make SURE you have the correct belt and be careful with the socket wrench; it takes lots of pressure to keep the belt tight.

Low voltage.... may be an alternator or a weak battery

Is there any services engine lights on.? it sounds as if it is flooding , it is also possible that the TPS. is faulty . the cheapest and best way to start is to have system scanned,for codes,that can be done for free at most Auto Zone part's stores,if you get more then just a simple code for the temp sensor , then you will need to have a more in depth testing , feel free to check back here for more info once ,you git codes. Thank you for using Fixya.
