Go to the hood and open it up and there is a box that is called a power distribution box it has a lot of fuses and much more.What you need to do is replace the fuel pump relay fuse. ( it will cost under $10.00) That is what will fix your problem. This fuse that I am talking about is on the left side next to the power point fuse and the other side is a pcm power relay so just replace the fuel pump relay.

I did have the same problem and it would start when it felt like it and you never new when it was going to start it was the most annoying thing I have every had to go through. I hope that this helps let me know I would be glad to look in it some more to see if there is Any thing else I could fined to help you,

Nikki

You may have a map sensor prob. Try to unplug it and see if it stays running.

Have a 96 bronco II had similar problem. Turns out there are 2 fuel pumps one low pressure in the tank and one hi pressure on the frame rail under driver side. Check the hi pressure pump. If it is bad just enough fuel will be delivered to start but not to stay running for long. I found out you don't need the tank pump that the hi pressure pump works the system fine. Disconnect the tank pump if replacing the front one. It was a recall not advertised. Mine has been working fine for seven years. Hope this works for you.

Sometimes my car starts and sometimes it does not. everything is on in my car but engine won"t turn over. i let it sit for a long period of time and it starts. what could be worg with it?


The first thing I'd suspect would be the distributor cap & rotor, but my 2003 PT Cruiser manual says:

1 - Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator --- Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
2 - Inspect Carburetor Float --- Faulty Choke Float.
3 - Inspect Choke Pulloff --- Faulty Choke Pulloff.
4 - Inspect Choke Thermostat --- Stuck or Improperly Functioning Choke Thermostat.
5 - Inspect Fuel Injector Cold Start Valve --- Damaged or Faulty Cold Start Valve.
6 - Inspect Spark Plugs --- Fouled Spark Plugs.
7 - Inspect Relay - Fuel Pump --- Faulty Fuel Pump Relay.
8 - Inspect PCV Valve --- Plugged or Damaged PCV Valve.
9 - Inspect Carburetor --- Choke Not Operating.

1975 Datsun (ie. mechanical fuel pump). Carburettor, electrics (inc. battery all good) fuel strainer all good. On cold start engine needs to be cranked several times. Warm start is invariably immediate. ...


Carburated vehicles ether have an automatic choke, or the very old ones, a hand choke. Yours has an automatic choke. The starting problem likely is a problem with the choke. The problem is almost certainly not the fuel pump.To set the automatic choke, push the accelerator to the floor, and RELEASE. Then start the engine just like you would a fuel injected vehicle. If this doesn't solve the problem, then the automatic choke needs to be repaired.

Chevy suburban not cranking


Check the fuel pressure you need 13psi to 15psi, anything different you will not get a start. The other thing to that is common to fail is the Ignition Control Module (ICM), IT coast around $40,00 at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instruction to getting the job done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

No spark in 93 toyota camry 4cyl


The Toyota 4 cylinder engines have a problem with the electronic units inside the distributor. You will need to replace the entire distributor to fix the problem. You can get aftermarket distributorsat ebay or similar sites for alot cheaper than the originals. It's an easy swap that will take about an hour to do if you are mildly mechanically inclined.
