Question about 2005 Chrysler Crossfire

1 Answer

Periodically the car won't start. full tank, half, doesn't matter. can hear the fuel pump engage when starting. help? On four occasions during the past month, my 2005 Crossfire Roadster has refused to start. All of the electricals work, but the engine will not turn over. After 20-30 minutes, the engine starts normally. On two of the four occasions, I have stopped in a parking lot, run into a store and when I came out the engine would not start. On two occasions, the engine has stopped running at low speed and then the engine will not restart. Again, after 20-30 minutes the engine restarts.

GMC 2000 sierra pick up 1500 sounds like it wants to start but won't turn over. Battery sounds good so I guess battery and alternator are ok. For several years fuel gauge doesn't work and...


It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

Engine turns over but wont start. 1997 gmc jimmy


Fuel Pump or starter. Since you say it's turning over but won't start I'd say it's your fuel pump. You'll probably have to drop your gas tank to fix this problem as your fuel pump is in the tank. You might be able to just loosen the straps and lower your tank a little to access it without removing the whole tank. Check around to local junk yards for this part and you'll probably find it for half the price as new. Make sure you can get your money back if the used pump doesn't work before you pay for it though. Don't forget to run fuel system cleaner (2 bottles to a full tank) once a month.

How do you know if the fuel pump or just the strainer is bad? i've had to "prime" the fuel pump (turn key forward) for sveral months now in order for the car to start if i dont, then im stuck...


I personally don't think its either. Do this for a living. You have an electric fuel pump and in most cases if they go bad it just plain doesn't work. If it was the strainer you would have problems with fuel pressure while running at all times. As far as having to "prime" the system you could be looking at a loss of pressure somewhere but sounds to me more like a relay or an electrical problem. What I am saying is that as you turn the key to "prime" it, you are maybe not priming it and its more of a hit or miss on the electrical problem. I would check to make sure your fuel pump relay is working. It should engage for about 5 seconds after you turn the key. You can feel if it is engaging by touching it when someone turns the key. Also there may be an ECM relay thats not engaging at all times. Are you able to hear the pump turn on when you turn the key? If yes when it will not start is there power (electrical pulse) on the injectors when it won't start? I would just hate for you to drop the gas tank for no reason and pay for a pump for no reason. Pumps are bad or not bad. Work or doesn't work in 99 percent of the cases. Fuel pressure doesn't change that much either. If there is a blockage it's there or not. Just my opinion and I hope it helps. Good luck.

Wont start think it might be fuel relay or pump


the relays are quite dependable now a days,check the fuse for the fuel pump in the fuse panel under the dash if the fuse is good then the relays are under the hood in a large relay box.you can interchange the relay with another relay that is the same as long as the relay is not used to run anything to allow the car to start.this will eliminate the relay.if the fuse is good you can just go from there to have someone bang on the fuel tank near were the fuel pump would be(middle of the gas tank),while someone tries to start the car,if it starts then it is the fuel pump that needs replacing and you won`t have to bother with the relay in the second step mentioned above.also the fuel filter could be plugged but you should hear the fuel pump working first.also just because you hear the fuel pump working it doesn`t mean that it is pumping at the correct fuel pressure

Usually that is a bad fuel pump. Filter is not on the tank. Test it when it doesn't start, or listen, as when you first turn the key to "run", you should hear the fuel pump cycle.

the fuel pump in the front tank could be over heating causing it to shut down for a short period of time. gas in the tank acually works like a coolant for tank mounted pumps so less gas = more heat

Periodically the crossfire won't start.


This sounds like one of those interesting problems. What you are going to have to do is find a light bulb type of electrical tester, and a schematic for the wiring on the car (or get a mechanic to do it). When the problem comes up again, you have to find where the power to the module is not coming through a weak connection. It is something that warms up and then breaks connection.
The first thing to do is change the fuses for the engine controls. Fuses are cheap and sometimes they develop a crack that opens when they see a rise in temperature from a heavy electrical load or warm or cold weather changes. Other things that cause problems are the wires that connect to the battery, and splices in those wires which are usually hidden inside a bundle of wires. Also inspect the connectors that hook up to the engine module and make sure the pins are not pulling out from tension in the wires and other defects.
You said it doesn't turn over, so also check the connections at the starter. Sometimes main power is routed through there.

Periodically the car won't start, all the whistles and bells but not an engine sound, then it will start right up, then while driving eight miles per hour, it just died. Any ideas?
