    ok so I think i have found the problem I pulled the main computer behind the ash tray area and it was full fo Anti freeze. Anyone know of an easy way to replace the heater core without pulling the dash?? or any hints on pulling the dash ( I have never pulled a dash before. Thanks for any help of tips you can give me.

    I've never removed a dash either, but I'm almost certain it has to be removed to get to the heater core. The water/anti freeze probably shorted out the ECU being the reason for the no start.

    thanks for the video link that will be very helpful, looks like a few days job after work to do the removal and install but with the price of gas it will be worth it.
