When this no start occurs does the engine starter motor crank the engine or not, we call this "Crank No Start", if that is the case then you may have a defective fuel pump, get a can of spray starting fluid from the Hardware store and when it doesn't want to start spray the fluid into the air intake hose of the engine then crank it over, if it fires up then the fuel pump is likely defective or the circuit that supplies it power.

Many cars nowadays have sensors built in to make then run economically and reduce pollution. If you start you car for very short runs, after a while these sensors become fouled, and/or they shut down to protect the engine.

Without diagnostics, I can't say exactly what the problem is but, I would suggest the next time you start the car, you give it a good run and get the engine good and hot to burn of any deposits stuck inside. (about 40 miles). Assuming this works, give you car a good run, 20 minutes, at least once a week.

SOURCE: my 2000 acura 3.2 tl is misfiring

Check the wiring. to Coil, plugs, Crank Positioning Sensor. check to see if the wire is in good condition sometimes if wire is checked, in poor condition it will allow bleed through especially when the wires get hot. This is why it will often start when engine cools down and why it shuts off when your sitting cause it heats the wires up there is not the cool air running accross the wires when sitting. Good Luck and a grt day. Would appreciat 4 thumbs up if this was helpful.

You are likely experiencing vapor lock. Changing gasoline grade, or getting a vented gas cap may help.

2000 volvo s70 difficult to start, more so as fuel level drops. Cranks fine. Recently changed MAF sensor, B+ cable, plugs, fuel filter - no improvement.


Sounds like the fuel pump, as the levels of the fuel tank drop, there's less natural pressure on the fuel, which would definitely make it harder to start with a weak fuel stream from a bad pump.

You either have a loose connection at the starter, or loose battery terminal.

You'd be surprised how many calls I got about your problem, and all it was, was a loose battery terminal.

Also, tap on the started itself...or the starter relay (under-hood, driver's side...in Electrical Center Box.)

Good-luck.

p.s. there is no sensor or reset for starter
