Having to cycle the key to get it to start better, that sounds like a fuel system problem. To me, it sounds like the fuel pump was going out. It wasn't picking up enough fuel in the 4 seconds it runs when you turn the key, so cycling it several times built up the fuel pressure so it would start. Do a fuel pressure test to see if this is the problem. Sorry, I do not know off hand what the fuel pressure is suppose to be when you cycle the key once.

Well im not so sure you gave us enough information but i will tell ya what i can, with what info you provided. First of all I want you to know this sounds like a gloomy scenario. Normally these hoses blow because of a couple different reasons. Either old age or to much pressure in your cooling system. Now if the truck has been very hot you may have destroyed your heads. Normally when someone has a vehicle that is hard to start and then blows cooling system parts you are gonna spend a lot of cash. But by the info you provided this is the only answer. Sorry maybe you can provide some more info and i can help ya more.

2000 silverado problems

Common problem on that model chevy. Check the fuel regulator to make sure is not leaking. Allow it to run for a few minutes and shut it off then pull the vacuum line off of it. If there is fuel in there that it is leaking. If that checks out it will most likely be the fuel pump. If you cycle the key a few time then it starts fine it will be the pump

Where is the fuel filter on a 2.2 engine for a 2000 Chevy Cavalier?

The fuel filter is directly behind the fuel tank.Between the rear axle and the fuel tank.You may have to blow out the connector because it gets full of dirt and makes it hard to remove.You should also be careful not to release it to quickly because the fuel system is under pressure.What you need to do before removing the filter is remove the fuel pump fuse and start the car til it stalls.Then turn the key off and now you can remove the filter connections.You will still have some spillage but not as much.Try to have the other filter ready to install when you take the old one out.This will keep you from getting too much fuel on you.Once you have installed the filter cycle the key on and off about 3 or more times then start the vehicle.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Fuel pump relay for a 1994 Chevy Truck WT1500

The Fuel Pump Relay is located in the Glove Box under a little cover on the upper left side. The Fuel Control Relay is the left relay and The Fuel Pump Relay is the right. To test these relays, swap them and then try to start the vehicle, or blow the horn. If the horn blows then use that relay for the pump and you may at least drive the vehicle where needed! If the vehicle starts, then replace them as a pair.

01 nissan altima. problems starting in cold weather

Next time, before you try to start it, cycle your key to on,(not start),then off, then, on, then off. Now try to start it. Did that help ? If it did, have your fuel filter changed if not done recently. If it didnt, have it scanned for trouble codes, and either have it fixed or record them & get back to us.
