The diagnosis usually starts with a Battery Test. A Digital Volt meter is then used for further diagnosis. Other than that...about all you can do is to try a PROPERLY executed Jump Start. Careful now,.....find someone who knows how to do this correctly....big $$$$ repairs can result if mistakes are made. Let us know result.

Trent..any updates concerning the issue with this vehicle?

85

yes. as far as the power outage goes it was simply the cable had cracked at the hot side. as far as the running part goes. i installed a new egr soliniod a new knock sensor and a new e.c.t. sensor and the improvment was vast. still has a lil stall at take off sometimes but i think its anexhaust or intake gasket leak issue
