Why are you randomly replacing parts without knowing what the problem is? Just curious. Scan it for trouble codes. That's the first step. What codes come up?

there are no codes just the starting problem.if there were codes i would not be talking to you no one can help me. all they can say is what code.i am looking for someone who can help thank you for your time
