Car starts fine sometimes, runs great. Other times it turns over good but doesn't want to start. Almost sounds like it is flooded.

The fuel pump relay (found under the dash) stops working in hot temps. Replace it with an aftermarket relay.

Hi there,

Honda has a problem in hot weather... If you car has been setting in the sun.... Especially a black car... .and it fails to start..... Cranks over but will not start.... Open the hood and let it sit for about 5 minutes and then try to restart it...... If it works you know that the problem occurs from an over temp in probably the ignition module..... There is also a module on the car that is refered to as the MAIN Power Module... This module has been known to have bad soldering points. If your problem is only related to starting it could be the Main Module.

Hope this helps...........
thanx for using Fixya
have a good day
bye
take care...

1994 Isuzu trooper very hard to start. acts like it flooded but when it finely starts it runs great and will restart every time. once cold it ether won't start or is very hard to start and acts like its...


Have a test done on the glo-plug system as it appears that they have burnt out and are not pre-heating the cylinders or providing a source of ignition for the atomised fuel from the injectors

2005 Suzuki Aerio hard to start, runs fine!?


I must assume the starter cranks at full speed. if yes.
then
its
1: never tuned up.
2: flooding (use wide open throttle to clear floods) "bad spark"
3: starving for fuel
there are simple tests for all 3 failure modes.
do you wish to test , or guess.?

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

Wont start takes hours to start again


.When the injectors leak they flood the engine and holding pedal to the floor or waiting hours for fuel to dissipate. See if you have spark and fuel when it wont run. If there is no spark check the electronic control module under the cap

2001 BMW 530, car turns over fine but sometimes just cranks and cranks without the engine starting. Battery turns engine over great but wont start. Next day starts great all day, then acts up again and...


sounds like a fuel pump or filter problem. replace filter first its cheaper than a fuel pump.my fuel filter on my 01 530 was under the driver side half way back along the bottom rail of the car.i had to remove the aero plastic with a plug puller that gave me acess to it.try and replace that first. if it doesn work its prob.fuel pump.

Start's great at times,then won't turn over,starters good


yes the switch would cause that problem with the brake light but not the dash lights, these cars had problems with the ignition swith and the chip reader on the ignition, hope this helps.

The 1996 Chev Cavalier runs great. Then I stop,


It sounds like the fuel pressure regulator has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Start with that if your engine is flooding over with gas as you ****. If there is an Auto Zone around you area, have them scan the car for any DTC codes that may be related to your car not starting like a bad MAP sensor which would also cause a no start when the engine is hot. Auto Zone also carries the parts you will need to replace and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the parts with common tools. If your good with tool both job should take about 30 min to replace. Good luck and keep me posted
