Hi if the engine light comes on you need to get the diagnostic tester to find out what the fault code is otherwise finding the fault can be a bit hit or miss and end up costing you more money then it might have you had the engined tuned [seviced] as this is the first thing to get done its the basics then look deeper if need be yates210456

Car won't start


Have read this twice and based on what you have indicated I think that maybe you have an intermittently operating fuel pump - sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. And while you are it, U might just want to check to make sure that the pump is always being energized -see if there is a loose connection somewhere that could result in the pump not running at times. If you have access to a voltmeter have your husband hook it up to the hot line and a good ground and have the meter in the car next to you. The moment you turn the ignition on the meter must register 12 volts or more. And once on, there is no cutting off - it stays at 12 volts at all times and any excess fuel pumped is returned back to the gas tank. Good luck.

Starting problem with my 98' chevy metro


Use a carb-cleaner spray on the choke assembly, and give it a good work-out to free any sticking linkage.

If this doesn't get it, replace the auto-choke valve...when's the last time you changed the air filter?
Think about it when you're shopping.

*To test: When you park with a hot engine, pop the hood and flap the choke open about halfway and try a restart.

1999 Toyota 4-Runner sometimes won't start


Sounds like the starter is getting ready to go out. I'd look at being ready to replace it soon. If it is a stick shift transmission car, you can PUSH start the car, but you probably want to get it done before this happens. This is what mine did, click, click, start, over a period of about 2 weeks before it finally went out. Replaced it, starts first time every time now.

Hope this helps.

Honda Accord 1994 V4 LX: Starting problems in the morning


There could be a few things causing this. When the car finally starts, is there any smoke coming out the exhaust pipe? White smoke would mean your headgasket is leaking and is letting coolant into the engine, then it is burned along with the fuel. Does the car run hot? Meaning has it ever overheated? Back to the smoke, if its black, your oil is getting in and is burning.

Now, the reason why it would be hard for a car to start, could be, a leaking headgasket, flooding the car while the car is sitting.

And yes, the car would be able to crank, but just wont start, for a while...because it has to get rid of all that fluid that has leaked into the engine while sitting at night.

Another thing you could look at, is your fuel pump, is it supplying a sufficient amount of pressure? If it isnt, it will take a while for it to pressurize and deliver fuel into the engine. You can check the fuel pump yourself by renting a fuel pump pressure tool from stores like autozone, kragen and more.

Your gas cap on tightly?

Good luck with your problem.
