Question about 1993 Volvo 940

Car is Difficult to Start and Fuel Burns Fast - Possible Carborator or Fuel Line Issue

This car was not driven frequently- Had to have the battery recharged. Encountered difficulty startting engine. Car idles rough and cuts off. I replaced the following items hoping to resolve the problem:

1. Intakae Gasket
2. Spark Plugs
Spark Plug Wires
3. Dist. Cap
4. Roter
The care will start now but it cuts off, as if it is not getting gas.

Should the computer be reset?

I am not a mechanic but the person working on this care does not know what is causing it to continue to cut off with a rough iteling.

Please help.

Thak you

K. J.

2004 325xi BMW wont start - replace spark plugs and fuel pump


If u hear the engine cranking in the AM, the batt & alt sound good. If you don't get any engine cranking in the am you may have an electrical short draining the battery. Before u convict the starter u must make sure the battery has full power in the AM. (12V) & 12 V to the starter

Car will not start turns over fast.


Car no start problem is sometimes very difficult to confirm. You try all the possible things, but still you get no fault and problem is still the same.--------
In that case, you need to check few things individually.
Check the spark,the battery,the crank, the fuel and other most possible parts. Click this link below for more details:-- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/10/car-troubleshooting-tips.html

New battery, new alternator, still wont start


    • 1 Ensure that your battery cables are properly connected to the battery.
    • 2 Start your car.
    • 3 Let the car run for around half an hour. Most cars idle fast enough that the alternator will be able to charge a battery while sitting at idle.
    • 4 Turn off your engine and test your electrical systems. If they work properly, your battery has been charged. If they do not work, or are sporadic, turn your car back on and drive around for another half hour. After the drive, your car's battery should be sufficiently charged.

2001 Firebird does not usually start after being driven.


Sounds like fuel and/or fuel pump related issue. In warmer climates you get "vapor lock" after running AC, etc... You'll get same symptoms for a weak fuel pump and or possible corroded connections at fuel pump. Connections when cold are tight and make good contact. After you've driven it and they warm up they expand and loose some of their contact surface. Look over all the grounds on you car, little wires attached to firewall, fenderwells and check connections (electrical) on your fuel pump.

My 92 saturn sl burns through gas way too fast. I barely make it 30 miles without having to fill up again. What do i need to do to get better gas mileage?


Need some more info. How much gas are you putting in it? Does it smell like raw gas at anytime? Under the hood or under the car? Possible broken (rusted) fuel line. Any service engine lights on? Does the car seem to run well?

1994 corolla: hard to start


If it is happening more frequently in cold or damp weather it could be a spark issue. Wet or damp weather can effect spark plug wires if there is even minor damage to them (usually occurs durring rain). The other things that come to mind are the fuel pump and lastly the fuel line check ball that is in the fuel tank. If it is leaking then all the fuel in the line will drain back into the tank over night (pressure lost in the fuel line) and this will cause repeated, extended cranking when you first start the car in the morning or after the car has sat for several hours.

Engine turns over but wont start


When you changed the Battery you likely have "erased" the computers memory and the security system I might try locking all the doors and opening them with the key, see the security system shuts off the fuel injectors and even though you have spark and fuel at the rail the injectors are not allowing fuel to the cylinders.
You can confirm this by spraying some carb cleaner into the air intake and crank it over see if it tries to start. This will tell you if its a fuel problem for sure.
