Often a fuel filter will be partially blocked and the fuel pressure will drop after the engine runs for a short time. Also, a fuel filter can run well for a short time and then fail from bad bearings or heat. Electronic components are notorious for failing after they have run briefly. If an electronic component fails it can appear to be just fine while you're testing it, but fail shortly after starting the engine. Often an engine will run briefly but the injector computer does not receive the indiction that the engine is running, and the computer will shut down the fuel pump. In fact, that usually happens after about 10 seconds. That's plenty of alternatives for you to check out. If you can get a GM code scanner you should be able to get some kind of reading. Good luck.
Have you checked for spark? Have you changed Spark Plug?
Spark at the plug, and fuel to start with.
More information is needed. Does the engine turn over, but not start? Have you checked for gas and spark?
You should probably get that checked by a mechanic.
Assuming that the starter is rotating and turning over the engine. Check for spark Check for fuel - You can get a can of starter fluid form an auto supply stoe - spray a little into the intake. Car should try to start - if it atttempts to run for a few seconds then the problem is fuel relatedm if not then it is spark related.
if it is getting fuel and spark it could be the map sensor
In order for the vehicle to start, you need to have a spark, fuel and oxygen. If you're not getting an adequate oxygen supply, your vehicle won't start. Have you checked your intake? Or perhaps your exhaust system could be clogged as well.
I did have the same problem but found that after inserting the key into ignition I deed to wait +/- 3 seconds and I can hear the start relay (on the relay pannel) click in. If I do not hear this relay click in the car just does not start (No spark from the electronic coil to the distributor).
CHECK THE IAC
Most starting problems are checked by starting with ethier fuel, spark, or battery.
try the crank/fuel sensor...
are you getting fuel past the fuel filter. do you have spark at the spark plugs
My 1998 Jeep Wrangler turns over great but will not start. What are the choices to be checked out?
Have you alternator checked also starter my be going out.
You have to figure out first, is it getting spark? Is it getting fuel? Have you disconnected a spark plug wire and cranked engine? Have you checked fuel pressure? . Start there first and get back. Need more info to help you.
Check electrical spark, if you have good fire, you can put a few drips of gas or spray some ether in to determine if it is a fuel issue, if it runs on ether, then try rotor and cap.
check to see if it's still in time and have the compression checked, if these four are correct it has to run. time, fuel compression and spark. hope it helps
The first thing to check is the spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor. Failing spark plugs/ wires are a common cause for a poor cold start condition. There may be a problem with the coolant temperature sensor. Have the sensor checked and the vehicle scanned, but don't over look the basics.
Have you checked for fuel and spark? Fuel pumps ad burnt ignition rotors are very commen on these vehicles
I have a 1993 Mazda 626, 5 speed. Had to replace the whole wiring harness. After replacing the harness my car will not start. All it does is crank, I checked for spark and i have none. Replaced the distributor rotor, spark plugs and still no spark. even checked to see if the fuses are all good. Oh also i don't have to hold the clutch in it cranks without holding the clutch in Never did that before. Anyone have any ideas? Or where i can look for more help?
No, timing is not adjustable. If timing is not correct a part has failed.
Hi..I recently had troubles with my alero, and it was the intake manifold gasket, which i guess is a common problem with 2000 alero's...i would get that checked out
check reset for fuel switch(rollover sensor)
Change the oil of the lawnmower and clean the air filter. Your spark plug might need to be cleaned.
no. Maybe for a few seconds when they are first inserted. Otherwise, the prescription needs to be checked for accuracy.
