Its your fuel pump.I had the same plomblem not too long ago.I was spraying either in to start it.I have a 97 chevy truck witch requires 65 psi to start and 55 to run properly.You need to find out much psi you need to start it.You can probaly look in your manual or just make a few calls.My truck had 55 psi and it ran fine i just had to get it running first.Good luck.I wonder if that fuel pressure regulator was a waste of time like it was for me.

Will not start after raining.Takes two to three days of no rain to start again.Then van will run again till it rains again.


you don`t say but it sounds like the moisture from the rain is sitting on the plug wires causing them to short the voltage to ground and possibly moisture in the distributor cap.how long has it been since a tune-up was done to the van.

My name is Kenny from Dalas, Texas I have a 95 1 ton chevy van with a 4L80E Transmission. It started shifting hard a couple of days ago. Ichanged the Filter and The Fluid. Now it takes along time to shift...


Shifting hard goes to line pressure. Check the filter you put in. There's a short version and a long version. If you have the long version in there, it will bottom out in the pan. Do not change the solenoids because it already shifts differently after changing the filter.

2005 Chevy Malibu starting problem


Sounds to me like you should check your battery and connections to it. Maybe they are dirty or corroded- not allowing full amperage to start your car or recharge the battery fully.

Just a relatively easy check and usually a no- cost fix!!!
Hope this helps you out!!

My dad is having trouble starting his 95 GMC Safari Conversion van after it has been running. After setting overnight the van starts right up. If he runs a short errand, turns it off, then tries to start...


My 1997 safari was doing the same. After being shut off for a short period of time it started as if it was flooded. If I put the accelerator to the floor it would fire up. As well, I had no engine codes to report. I replaced the fuel pressure regulator and everything is great. It was leaking fuel into the engine causing it to act flooded when starting. Once started, the computer system made adjustments for the leaking fuel so the engine ran fine. If you turn the van off and immediately try to start it, it should fire up. (don't give it time to leak extra fuel into the engine)
