Hello! I've replaced the distributor cap and rotor, ignition control module, crank sensor & fuel pump. My truck still won't start. The mechanic who did the work seems to think it's the PCM/ Computer. I've spoken with other mechanics & they've said the problem could lie else where. I just need some answers. This is getting really expensive. I've already spent over $400 & haven't solved the problem. What do you think? Thanks
My car has 173000 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

Hi there. Has the battery been tested? Have the battery tested with a digital tester that provides current voltage, cold cranking amps, and state of health. A bad cell in the battery can wreak havoc on the electrical system and have technicians chasing ghosts. If the battery tests ok, that is a good thing as it does not need to be replaced. There is a basic acronym I use for no start conditions: FAST (Fuel, Air, Spark, Timing). These are the basic things that every engine has to have to run. After checking these the diagnosis can move forward. A capable scan tool may provide data that can assist in the diagnosis as well. I suggest having a qualified technician perform an inspection to avoid replacing any more unnecessary parts. Your Mechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with a car does not start inspection.
