It sounds like the starter is not engaging the flywheel to crank it and is just spinning. If it were mine, I'd pull the starter out and see if anything looks strange and see if the starter gear moves easily.

You have a bad idle air / idle sensor. Your car believes that you are in idle at all times so when you come to a stop the engine floods. When the fuel evaporates you can drive again. Drove me crazy when it happened to me.

check to see if the starter is ingaging or making a clicking sound when you have the hood up. If you do not hear the starter ingaging then its your starter but also you might have a ground issue too so use a multimeter if you know how and have one check things with this to see if there might be any short to the ground of car plus there might be bolts lose or missing as well you should check.

Where is the starter on a 1988 Pontiac 6000 LE 4 cyl 2.5L ?


Should be between the engine and radiator underneath the car. You may be able to see it if you look down towards the oil pan, on the radiator side of the motor.

Sounds like you are loosing fuel pressure intermittently. Is there any damage to the fuel lines? Maybe the fuel pump is on its way out (loosing prime.) If you find this helpful, please rate, thank you.

Why wont my 91 6000 3.1 start when it has good fuel pressure and spark but start for a second or two with starting fluid


Obviously, there is a fuel delivery problem, even though there is pressure; the injectors have to open to squirt the stuff into the cylinders. Got a code reader? That would be a good step in the right direction....accordianman
