Borrow, rent or buy a GM code scanner and see if there are any stored codes in the computer. It could also be something simple like a map sensor or temperature sensor that is out of calibration. If the computer is being told that the engine is warm, it won't send extra fuel during startup. Also, check the compression and ignition. A weak spark will make it difficult to start when cold. Low compression is a serious problem and there isn't much you can do for it except rebuild or replace the engine. Good luck.

What can cause intermittent starting problem with a 1992 Pontiac Bonneville SE where the engine cranks but does not start?

Check the fuel pressure. There should be a test port near the throttle body. If that checks out OK, test the spark to make sure the coil packs are working. If everything checks out, try a little starting fluid to see if you can run the engine briefly that way. If it will start with starting fluid and not without, you have a fuel delivery problem and you need to go back through and test everything along the way. If you have good pressure to the test port, that's not the problem.

Why wont your 1999 gmc jimmy start after sitting for 6 days?

AnswerUnfortunately tbat doesn't give enough information. Is it cranking? If not the battery could have gone dead. If it cranks but doesn't catch there could be a fuel delivery problem, try some starting fluid to see if you can get it to run at least a little.If it doesn't start with the fluid, check the distributor cap. it likes to accumulate moisture.

Where do you put transmission fluid on 1995 Chevy Corsica?

you apparently have a manual transmission or you would have found the dipstick/filler tube commonly yellow in this year range as is our 95 corsica! manual trannies don't usually require fluid until full servicing. but in the case you do need it, should be steel plug about 1/2 way up the side of tranny usually passenger side.
