    By firing im thinking you mean turning over, or cranking. Can you check to see if your are getting any spark at the plugs?

Hi, 1997 monte carlo that idles, but cuts out when put in gear, or at times while driving. 3.1 engine. 184,000 mi.


I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a similar or maybe even the same issue with mine. It usually starts up fine, and idles and runs fine when first started, however a few blocks or a few miles down the road it starts to cut out on me, sometimes dying completely... throwing it into neutral and pumping the gas usually will keep it running. This has gone on for a couple of months. When it does die, It normally will restart after sitting for a few minutes. Then a couple of weeks ago it died on me (normally this happens when slowing down and coming to a stop,) and would not restart even after a 1/2 hr, I had to have it towed. I periodically attempted to start it for over a week, it would turn over, but nothing more...then someone suggested that I disconnect the auto start box...It started right up. However, it still continues to cut out when slowing or stopping unless thrown into neutral and pumping the gas. It seems to run better on the open highway, than it does in town with all the slower speed and stop n go. I bought this car used about 6 mos. ago, and considering it's age and the 135K miles on it, I don't want to put any more money into it. I just read there is a recall on this vehicle for the fuel pump and additionally the fuel assembly, I'm not sure if this would be the answer to the whole problem or not.

2000 silverado wont start


one good way to check that the fuel pump is running to listen. take the gas cap of and put you ear the the fuel tank fill neck. have a freind turn the key from the off position to the on position, but do not start the crank the engine over. you should hear a huming or wizzing sound for a few short moments. if you hear that sound the pump is running and more thatn likely pumping fuel.

90 Honda Accord will not crank or start. It has full power, checked fluids, pulled main relay and it looks fine. Starting to think it might be the starter but it was just replaced a few months ago.


you might want to check to see if it has fire if not it is probally the timming belt if it does have fire then you need to chek your fuel pump spray some strating fluid in the intake where the air filter is and if it starts then it probally your fuel pump

TRUCK WILL NOT START


Do you hear your fuel pump coming on when you turn the key to run? Could be fuel pump if you don't hear the whine/hum. Could also be anti theft system.

Current cut-off


Hi, If the vehicle cuts off and starts right back,it could be the fuel pump relay, defective charging sistem (battery&alternator) can also cause it , If the lights and all the power goes off there is a contact problem ,could be a lose wire, or a defective ignition switch . If it takes some time to start back ,check the fuel delivery sistem,fuel filter ,fuel presure,or clogged injectors.

Hey there boatright33,

A few things things immediately come to mind.

There may be a problem with the engine controller. You could check the ODBII onboard diagnostics. Auto part stores will usually do this for you at no cost.

When you pulled the ones that were/went bad, how did the filters look? Could there be particulate matter still in the tank causing them to fail.

I always put this one off until last. Check the injectors. Are they gummed up?

Let me know what you find out
Mike
