Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada

1 Answer

Ran out of gas. Put new gas in it. Ran for a while...but...

I have a 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada. I ran out of gas three days ago. This is about the 2nd or 3rd time its' happened in about a month because my fuel gaige is broke. After I put gas into it to get it started, I filled her up, went to work, and, after work I started it to let it warm up...and it died. I started it again: it went it was trying to stay started, but it died. This happened about three or four times...until I couldn't turn her over any more. I had a mechanic come look at it. At first we thought it was fuel filter, but, he got 60 PSI fuel when he hooked his machine to a cap under the hood. We checked everything: sparkplugs, distributor, cords...we couldn't pinpoint it. He sprayed starting fluid into the engine and it acted like it wanted to turn over...but it didn't. Out of options. What can I check? Sparkplugs are old, and, the engine could use a tuneup, but, is it coincidental that this happened after I ran out of gas?

Please help!

I have 2000 Oldsmobie Bravada that spits and sputters every time I hit the gas. I've had an induction, transmission flush, tune up (all new wires and spark plugs), new EGR valve, new throttle position...

I went through this problem, and did everything you did, even the SeaFoam. Turns out, the new distributor caps I bought were defective. I switched it out to another brand, worked for a day and then sputtered again. I read somewhere that (FOR THIS VEHICLE) aftermarket caps and rotors aren't manufactured correctly, causing arcing. Switched the cap and rotor to AC Delco brand, and all ran good, going on 1 year now with no problems.

I changed my fuel pump yesterday and it started right up and ran fine now the next day it ran then went to start it and it wont start now just like before i changed the old pumnp out

When you changed your fuel pump, did you also change the filter?
Also, I had 4 pumps go out in 1 year on a truck I had. It was a crappy pump. Remember you get what you pat for.. Got the name brand and didn't have any more problems.. Also, look for a loose or pinched wire, had that happen too.
Good Luck!

bleed the fuel system of air. If the vehicle runs then there was air in the fuel lines. If the following day it doesnt start again then there is air getting into your fuel system somewhere

My 2000 bravada wont start.

you pulled the ignition switch and installed a different switch
that means that you have installed a different immobilizer system
try reprogramming the new key to your ECM and it will probably go

My 2002 oldsmobile bravada wont start what do i do?? Ok I drove my bravada the other night it ran fine I just noticed a clicking noise but did'nt think anything of it cause truck was running fine no power...

No one can guess from afar

You need to have the vehicle to run
some tests

Worn out Battery or Run Down
Bad Starter Solenoid
Bad Starter

Gas doesn't freeze.

You know how to fix it
You have a local repair shop
pick it up,diagnose and repair

Engine check light is on

does the car buck on the highway when accelerating under a slight load?
i owned one of these exact cars,3.8 litre.
2 problems. one,the baffles braek in the gas tank,and if you run 1/4 tank or less it will stall in a turn.
mine it was a right turn.
2nd problem,the EGR valve was stuck and it would surge or "buck" on the freeway.
replaced the egr (exhaust gas return)valve and it ran like new.
if the egr valve is code 42,(i do not have the manual in front of me) you have found the problem
check the egr,it can cause the problems you have.

fuel pump died replaced it truck ran poorly afterwards. Had a prussuer test done pump determend pump was no good. Put in another ran good for 2 days started running poorly hard to start no power. 2nd fuel pump. So i figure another bad new fuel pump wow changed it put in a third brand new fuel pump. Still will not eve start now. I had it tuned up 2 months ago new plugs rotor, cap, etc. put in a new fuel filter made sure it is on proper checked all connections for leaks. this cannot be a fuel pump problem now. no problem with the elctrical i figure i have great spark on ignition tester. I can hear the fuel pump prime when i turn the key. but when i went and checked the fuel port i had no pressure. When it is being cranked gas sews out of the test port. Also i dont if this is comon cause i used to turn my keyand go. but when i have someone turn the key and i listen at the gas tank whn the key is shut off i hear gs spraying back into the gas tank. So i am open for opinions.
