Starts then dies


check fuel pressure. could be multiple things causing this but weak fuel pump is most likely. if have no access to fuel press guage, have friend crank engine while you (carfully) feed fuel to throttle body and see if it tries to stay running. use carburator cleaner with small burst of spray at a time. if it sounds like it about to die, give a squirt...etc. just be carful and aware and safe. have fire extinguisher close just in case. keep face etc far as possible away. if dont feel comfortable, dont attempt.

1990 chevy silverado 1500 wont run


Code 12 means you are in test mode, code 34 is a problem with the map sensor, and code 35 is a problem with the idle control valve.
But those two codes could show up if you disconnect those sensors or if the engine is having other problems.
In situations where the engine stalls, it is very easy to overlook something or assume a component is working.
Treat it like a no start. Pull a plug wire and watch the spark as the engine dies. Use carb cleaner or starting fluid to boost fuel supply.
You'll have to figure out if it is loosing spark or fuel to proceed.
Things like the coil, the stator in the bottom of the dist, or a relay can be the cause. Even low fuel pressure.

2004 Jeep dies on acceleration, then will not start. After it starts will idle hard and guages start to move erratic. Will aso just die while driving down the road! Does not lose power just dies. Tried...


NO ENGINE STATED, WHICH ONE?
ON ALL MACHINES LEARN THIS. FOR SURE WITH COMPUTERS.
TO FIND INTERMITTENT's:
You must scan it while it fails, for 2 reasons,
you cant fix it if its not broke, (NOW)!
and the computer may not store the code until 1 or 2 or 3 trips
are completed (a trip means code to hot engine and miles)

in most cases (all?) on intermittent you must scan it and do that as it fails.
look for DTC's live before turning off the engine,and in PENDINGs

this does NOT mean you can't get lucky, luck happens
3 trips happen or not.
The SM book covers these rules on trips to set and clear.
its tricky, avoid tricky, and learn to SCAN !

and reason 3?
gee, the tool is less than paying 10 shops to find it when not broken now, is it not? (< a hard cold truth on all modern cars)

You can (personally) do 2 things, guess or tests.
which do you want?
do tell the helper, as we can least over 50 reasons for a stall
even bad spark plugs. (called a tuneup)

1984 toyota pickup, 22R engine, stalls out when driving 2-8 miles


I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the rubber fuel lines being old and cracked. The hoses would warm up and fuel would squirt out of the cracks. I had to replace three fuel line hoses and it has been running great ever since. Good luck.

Cranks but no start


Sounds like the carb is dirty. I would check that before spending a lot of money of other things.

Car wont' start


I don't have a Corsica, I have a 2003 Suburban but I have a similar problem. Every few months or if the car has been sitting for 12 hours and the fuel guage reads less than 1/2 the car will crank and start for a couple of seconds and then die. You can keep trying but it will not run for more than a second or two. If one hits the gas tank bottom then it will start okay. At other times the car will lose power and the engine will struggle to stay running. If that happens you have to turn off the engine and then hit the tank.

We tried replacing the fuel filter to no avail and other fixes would cost a lot more so I live with it and keep the tank at least half full.

One mechanic thought that something in the tank may be coating the fuel screen and the engine had to be shut off to release it. Our other guess is that a fuel line pressure regulator check valve gets stuck and banging the tank breaks it loose.

If your problem is similar then towing the car might have the same effect as hitting the tank. When you drive the car keep an eye on the fuel gauge. My Suburban's changes readings at times. It's possible that your car thinks it's out of fuel and shuts off the pump to protect it. If your engine dies and you are coasting and you can do so safely, hit the brakes hard. That may shake things enough to help.

I've been told I have a fuel pump going bad and that banging it is only a short reprieve but it's done this for 3 years now so I doubt it.

Toyota Prius starting problem


There's a known problem with the early Toyota Prius (2001 - 2003), when running the engine for a long period of time without moving or when the car is driven only for short trips (short city driving), the Prius might not start.

You have to change the original battery with a 356 CCA which is bigger because the battery is bigger you also have to change what is holding it into place.
