    well yeah it started off as i went to work and delivered something and then battery died, my friend came with jumper cables dunno why he didnt look but he put a postive on a negative on the battery smoke started comming out, i looked a saw it and took it off, didnt know what went wrong yet, so we swaped it to the right way and we charged the car, we got it running but the rpm and mphs werent moving, after work i tried to start the car and no go, notting turns on

    what we changed was the fuel pump as it wasnt pumping gas, and i changed the fuel filter just in case. but when i start the car it'll bog and die, or if im lucky it'll start for 5 seconds and then bog and die. if i step on the gas while it is idling it'll die. the other weird thing is that if the check light is on i cant start the car i'll have to wait till it goes off then i can try and attempt to start the car. just alot of weird things. we changed the relay near the fuses under the dash.

    and still notting

    any1 knows why this is happening? .

    I'm not sure you'd really want to continue utilizing the advice of your "buddies" in this situation...

    Why did you change the fuel pump if the battery was giving you trouble?

    You have codes? Check them....it is far from anything difficult. This would start you in some kind of direction

    Cheese and Rice!!!!! Check the flippin' codes will you? We can act like everything is fried and just take the car to the junkyard....or you could start with the codes and see what it tells you.

    After checking the ecu check out the dizzy, honestly I've seen a few people with similar problems which I had with my eg and it was the distributor, wouldn't hurt to check out, see if one of you're friends has an extra one.
