1991eclipse 2.0L starts 2 to 3 seconds later shuts off
Crankshaft position sensor has failed.... it works fine when cold but as soon as the engine and wiring warms up... it fails to signal properly and kills the motor.... 16-40 bucks at the parts store
The most common cause would be lack of fuel. But without having more information that is just a guess.
The engine in your Accord is an interference engine. For that reason alone, it is critical the belt be replaced correctly. Do it wrong and there will be severe engine damage as soon as you start the engine. Therefore, I recommend you have the belt replaced by a professional. This is not a job for a novice.
you need to scan the car to find out what is wrong. if you have a auto zone near you they will scan it for you.
meaning something's wrong with your engine, go to your car shop and have it diagnosed.
I can, and so can anyone else who has a relatively new engine diagnostic code scanner. However, if the problem is not resolved, the light will return as soon as you start the engine
The service engine soon light is illuminated by a signal from the computer to indicate a sensor(s) has detected something wrong. While you are driving around, stop by AutoZone or a similar auto parts store that offers free computer scanning to retrieve the trouble code(s) to see what went wrong.
The Service Vehicle Soon indicator is usually a light bulb, headlight, or something to do with the vehicle. The Service Engine Soon indicator is anything that could be wrong with the Engine. Some computers can read codes for either, but some computers can only read codes for the Service Engine indicator.
The fumes are the burnt exhaust gasses.
That's the computer's way of telling you that something is wrong and it wants you to read the diagnostic code.
it could be weak spark plugs.
not very long at all because the cylinders will start rusting soon
That is normal but, when you start the engine the light should go out.
The check engine or service engine soon light comes on to alert you that there is or was a problem with the emissions system on your vehicle. If the light comes on steady and stays on, it means that there is a problem and you should have it checked out soon. If it comes on and flashes, it means you will cause damage if you continue driving.
It's either fuel, spark or compression. If the engine has all 3, in the proper order and quantity, it WILL run. So start by checking the easiest first; get a can of starting fluid, remove the air filter from the throttle body and have a helper try to start the engine. As soon as you hear the starter engage, start spraying the starting fluid into the air intake. As soon as the engine starts (or when the helper stops attempting to start the engine), stop spraying the fluid. If the engine started, you have a fuel delivery problem. Check the fuel pump, injector, fuel filter, fuel pump fuse... all that. If the engine didn't try to start, run a compression test. If you have low or no compression, rebuild the engine. If the compression is OK, check the spark. Lay a sparkplug on some GROUNDED metal part of the engine and connect a sparkplug wire to it. Have the helper try to start the engine again while you're watching the sparkplug. You should have a strong spark at the plug. If you get no spark or if you have a weak spark, that's your problem.
It means there is something wrong with your pollution controls, most likely.
it's your crank sensor as soon as the engine gets warm it shut offs. let it cool down and the car starts back up.
It's Pontiac that's your problem.

No, but if you start a water-cooled engine with a broken water pump, your engine will soon fail from extreme overheating.
No , the engine coolant will start flowing through the radiator when the engine coolant thermostat starts to open ( assuming everything is working properly ) Helpfull
First diagnos the problem(whats wrong). Did the "check engine"light come on? Failed smog inspection? "service engine soon"light driveability problems? engine pinging bad gas mileage no power/performance? Need more info. First diagnos the problem(whats wrong). Did the "check engine"light come on?
