SOURCE: won't start unless you push

it sounds like fuel pump is going. pressure should be around 40 psi.
Or it could be flooding. Holding gas pedal to floor during cranking of the engine, shuts off fuel flow through the injectors to clear a flooded engine. After engine is running again, it lets fuel flow.

If you have a Mass Air Flow Sensor in the iar intake tube, clean it with spray carb cleaner several times.

Also, try disconnecting the oxygen sensor to see if it helps. It will turn your check engine light on, but you can cycle key from off to "on" 40 times to turn it off.

Injectors don't actually go bad they are really only a spray nozzle, BUT being a spray nozzle they can clog up like a can of spray paint, adding a pure hydocarbon to the fuel can help a little, but to get them really clean, remove them, then clean them with a pure hydrocarbon and a tooth brush, toluene, or xylene will work best, be very careful not to get any on any rubber o-rings, it will destroy them instantly. Your problem also sounds alot like bad gas or water in the gas, these symtems are also a sign of a bad catalitic converter, I can't tell you witch problem it is but hopefully this will give you a place to start your search.

SOURCE: When I push the gas on my car it won't go past

The car runs fine after it warms up? Is it running with the check engine light off? But it does come on with the key before the engine is started? If the coolant temperture senser is bad ( or disconnected someway) the check engine light will be on but the car might run OK at normal operating tempertures. Have the car checked for codes. It's OBDI so you might have to find a service provider that can ceck the codes on this pre OBDII car. If it turly runs good at normal operating tempertures and the transmission is'nt low on fluild then the coolant senser does'nt always turn the check engine light on if it's bad and still reading something but wrong. Truly running good and the coolant is full ( all the way). chage the senser and see what happens as thier cheap and easy to change with commn hand tools.654437604.jpg

2001 Buick Lesabre starts normal everyday. Car sits three days or more will not start unless you put the accelerator pedal down at least twice


put the accelerator pedal down at least twice ? While cranking the engine ? key on ? what ? Your vehicle has electronic fuel injection ,not a carburator . Pushing the gas pedal doesn't do anything The only thing if pushing the gas pedal to the foor an holding it there will put it into clear flood mode , shutting off the fuel injectors .

2003 nissan maximal 3.5 v6 engine just shuts off sometimes will crank back sometimes want crank just turn over till u push gas to floor and hold it


You must have an engine light on (unless some shady person unhooked light). Take car to place like Autozone or other parts stores that read codes for free and have it checked. If code is found and no engine light then someone unhooked the light. On fuel injected cars you should always be able to start with no gas pedal. On old carburetor engines flooring them while cranking would start a flooded engine - but there is a problem if you are doing that with a fuel injected car. It sounds like a major sensor is dropping out, or fuel pump is going bad. If it is doing what you say - just going dead - and when checked it shows no codes at all - it is probably fuel pump getting weak.

My 1968 chevy impala wont start unless i push gas pedal to the floor


it is your carburetor the fuel float is set to high and probably leaks. If it older than 10yrs old and has never been rebuilt . do that if you want to save yourself a bunch of time and little more money make the investment of a Brand New not rebuilt. if you get the carb manufactor specs matched to your motor , Out of the box, it will be very close to being on the money .

1998 Ford Escort Se 2000cc SOHC will difficultly start the first time then has to set 30 - 40 minutes before it will start again


Holding the gas pedal to the floor will cause the PCM to put the fuel injection system into clear flood mode , cutting the amout of fuel going into the engine . Pumping or pushing on the gas pedal while cranking the engine over does nothing but allow more air into the engine , it's not giving it more gas . The computer has a set program it follows at start up . It's not like a carburetor ! Fuel pressure regulator .

Hi,, your computer should be giving you a code. Do you get a check engine light? Most likely the IAC (idle air control) valve or throtle position sensor. If you can get the codes its giving you can track the problem down better without guesswork.

Dirty airfilter, car will not start


If you took out the filter and it's dirty you can't see light thru it replace it. As far as not starting unless the air filter is now a solid block of dirt it should start, if the engine is fuel injected you must not touch the gas pedal while starting the engine or you will flood it.If it's flooded assuming you replaced the filter. Push the gas pedal to the floor hold it there while starting, after the engine starts remove your foot from the pedal to avoid engine overreving. This should fix the problem. Air filters should be changed every 12 months if you drive in dusty condtitions sooner the better
