Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada
I was driving and it stalled. I pulled off the road and my sister's friend came to look at it and told me to get some starter fluid. I did that and it would start for just a second then die again. What is wrong with it?
Please stop using the starting fluid, it is terrible for your engine- use choke cleaner if you need to do this in the future again. you can run it on choke cleaner indefinately if needed.
It sounds like your fuel pump quit on ya. When you turn the key to the "run" position do you hear the pump run in the tank for 3-5 seconds? you should. The fuel pump is in the gas tank and the tank has to be removed to acess it.
you can remove the coil wire from the coil and check to see if the coil is firing a spark. crank the engine with the wire off. make sure there is no starting fluid or choke cleaner fumes around before you do this-k? Carefull not to let it shock you. if it is sparking then you should check the fuel pressure. it should be 60psi while cranking the engine. you will need a fuel pressure guage to do this.
