Question about 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

Fuel injector fuse is blown, keeps blowing. Engine turns but won't catch and start.

It was driving fine, and then suddenly the engine died shortly after exiting the freeway. Fuel pump seems to be fine, but the fuel injector fuse is blown and when replaced, blows again.

If the injector fuse is blown then the car won`t start as its not getting fuel into the motor to fire.if the fuse keeps blowing then you could have an injector/s that is drawing too much or the injector driver in the ecm may not be any good and needs replacing or a used ecm.it could be a short some where in the wiring for the injector system that is going to ground.

SOURCE: car starts then dies

Your antitheft system is shutting it down. You need to reprogram it. First hook up a battery charger. Then turn the key on. The security light should blink on and off. Leave the key on for 10 minutes. At the end of ten minutes, the security light will stop blinking. When it does turn the key off for five seconds. Then turn the key on. Repeat the 10minutes. Turn the key off then on. Repeat the 10 minutes a third time. At the end of the 3rd ten minute period , start the truck. It should be reprogrammed and continue to run.

Engine died while driving on the freeway, now only cranks but wont turn over/


As with any no start problem, have you checked for spark at the plugs and normal fuel pressure at the injectors ?
Does it crank with normal compression ?

1990 olds 98 suddenly dies. starter spray into inj. cover starts it but then immediately dies again. fuel pump and cannister filter ok. new module filter off inj. line under hood. still won't start. w


You cant check fuel pressure that way. You have to connect a fuel pressure guage to the fuel rail at the schrader valve. It should have 30-40psi when ignition is turned on. Injectors not functioning properly will cause a misfire Sounds like a fuel pump or fuel going out.

I have a 1999 Legacy. Died while I was driving. Oil didn't register on dip stick. Won't start now. It turns over fine. Has power, compression, oil & fuel pressure is good. Plugs are dry(Not saturated)....


Could have overheated because low on oil, the engine may not start until the computer is reset, a safty feature which keeps the engine from damage in such cases., Take it to a mechanic to reset the computer if you think the oil being low was the main issue.

2002 dodge stratus suddenly became hard to start. Switched windshield wiper relay with the fuel pump relay. Seemed to work then after sitting over night problem returned. Showed P0171 and P0174 codes....


Get a can of spray starting fluid and see if the engine starts up and dies right out, if so you have lost the injectors, either the PCM is fault (unlikely) or the power circuit to the injectors from the injector fuse is defective due to a defective wiring issue.

Car dies on freeway.Never overheated!!! What could it be.I'm guessing the fuel pump


Hopefully you don"t need gas first in the tank.While driving did your motor seem to ruff suddenly and as you went slower to a stop did you pull over and turn car off? When you turned it on again did it start up really ruff without giving gas.Can be that you need a fuel injector replaced you can not clean it because it also works electronic.Toyota runs better on higher octane period.

I have a 1992 chevy c1500 ext cab truck. 5.0 engine, 2wd. The other day i was driving on the freeway when all of a sudden the engine just died. after pulling it over to the shoulder i tried starting it...


Your problem my friend is the fuel pump. These go out and your dead in the water. If all electrical systems seem fine and no warning light then I would highly suspect the fuel pump. Can you have someone get in and turn the key on and then turn it over while your looking into the throttle body, check and see if your getting gas, if none then it.s the pump. You can also try a LITTLE bit of starting fluid in the breather and it should try to start or may even run a few seconds, again this points to the pump or a completely clogged fuel filter. The pump is located in the gas tank just so you know.

My intrepid dies while driving


It sounds (based on your description) like there is a Fuel problem:
1. Check the fuel pressure at the port on the Fuel Rail. Check especially when operating at higher RPM's than at idle or stop. At these levels there is enough gas being provided to keep the engine going. At higher RPM's the Pressure/Volume may not be enough causing the stalling.
2. When was the last time the Fuel Filter was changed? Change this and check operation before moving onto to #3.
3. The Fuel Pump. If the Fuel Pressure and Volume at the Fuel Port is falling at higher RPM's and the Fuel Filter did not help: It sounds like the Fuel Pump is failing. These will fail especially after they warm-up. This problem (losing power and dying) will happen more and more frequently and the Fuel Pump will eventually die all together.
You have to replace the Fuel Filter when you install a new Fuel Pump - it is part of the warranty.
4. The Fuel Injectors: If the Fuel Pressure/Volume at the Fuel Rail is fine, then it is not the Fuel Filter or the Fuel Pump. The problem is "downstream". It may be the electrical aspect of the Fuel Injectors or the mechanical side of the Fuel Injectors themselves. Check each Fuel Injector for correct voltage. If the voltage is correct - Pull and replace that corresponding Fuel Injector. I actually recommend: if you have to replace more that one Fuel Injector - go ahead and replace them all.

Question: 2000 GMC Jimmy mileage: 97,000. The car wouldn't start. Replaced the fuel pump twice and still no start. The fuel pressure would only go up to 55 psi. Finally got it started the other day, but...


sounds like the fuel injectors are not delivering fuel, this can be a shorted engine harness, have you checked ECM fuses in uhnder hood fuse box drivers side?
