How do i fix my car it stops after driving a mile?


You mite as well change the crank sensor too , you replaced everything else ! Parts stores love you ! What's missing after it stops , spark ? Can't be fuel you replaced everything there or did you ? fuel pump relay ! What year is your Cutlass ? What engine does it have ? 2.4 or 3.1 L .could have two crank sensors 7X an 24x an there is also a cam sensor ! You could have taken it to a repair shop an spent less ! You should have had it hooked up to a scan tool that shows engine data !

Excessive crank time on cold engine start


The way the newer systems work the engine spins at least a few turns while the computer checks everything for correct readings. In the old days it was "cool" to be able to reach in and "bump" the key and have the car start. It meant you had the car tuned perfectly. Now the vehicle computer will not turn fuel on until it is happy with readings. One trick you can try is turn key to full on position and let it sit for a second or two before turning key the rest of the way to crank. This allows the system a second to do it's checking without wasting power cranking. Had Nissan that was just like this. Just wait a few beats before turn to full crank. You can also listen for fuel pump whine in that few seconds, and then hopefully whine to stop when pressure hits full. If whine never stops fuel pump may be getting weak. If you can get access to higher end code reader you can also check for "pending" codes that may be showing up sometimes (holding start up) but then working (so engine finally fires).

I have a 1997 chevy lumina 3.1L V6 i had the full tune up done oil change oil filter change spark plugs wires fuel filter my car was driving just fine. I went to the store came out to crank my car and it...


Make sure the fuel filter wasn't installed backwards...if it is correct..then replace the fuel pump..just because it works,doesn't mean it's strong enough to deliver fuel..best of luck

Fuel pump and filter good condition. but the car wont start, ignition does turn engine.pls advise. booysen


First establish fuel pressure at injectors.

After cranking the engine, break open the fuel line at the stainless steel manifold compression joint over the injectors with two wrenches(17mm? ).

Using a shop cloth to stop spray covering everything... you should get fuel comming out under pressure ...allow to stop weeping fuel and clean up any wet fuel.

Close fuel line and crank engine again.

Repeat...if fuel does not spray out pump is not pumping.

Aggrivating cranking demon,


I'm not sure if your engine has hydraulic lifters or not. sorry, but if it does, then pumping them up might take a few cranks to build up oil pressure. I would check compression, cylinder leakage, to start. The more information you can get on the engine, the better. If the mixture is too rich BEFORE start up, it might take a few cranks to get fresh air charge into the intake header before right mixture is present for fireup.

"Cranks, but won't start". Replaced fuel pump, CKP, ICM & nothing


If the engine cranks over normally when you attempt to start you car, but the engine does not start, the problem may be NO FUEL, NO SPARK or NO COMPRESSION. The engine needs adequate fuel pressure, a properly timed spark and normal compression to start.


1) To find why the engine won't start, remove the air inlet tube from the throttle body, push the throttle open and spray a small amount of aerosol starting fluid into the engine. Crank the engine. If it has spark and compression but NO FUEL, it will start and run a few seconds before dying. If it does NOT start, it probably has NO SPARK.

2)Another method to check for spark is to pull a spark plug wire off of a spark plug (if it has plug wires, coil-on-plug ignitions do not) and place the open end of the plug wire near a metal surface on the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch for a spark. DO NOT hold the wire while doing this as it can shock you. If you see a spark, the problem is not spark, but most likely NO FUEL or NO COMPRESSION. If you do not see a spark, the problem is in the IGNITION CIRCUIT.

3)Proper fuel pressure is critical for fuel injected engines to start and run. You should hear the fuel pump inside the fuel tank buzz for a couple of seconds when the ignition is turned on (no buzz means the pump is not running and the engine is not getting fuel). You can smell the tailpipe for gasoline vapors after cranking the engine. If you smell gas, the problem is likely not fuel but NO SPARK. You can also remove the plastic cap and press the schraeder valve test fitting on the fuel rail to see if there is any fuel pressure to the engine (not a very accurate test because fuel pressure must be at a certain level for the engine to start, for that you need a gauge). Even so, no fuel at the fuel rail would tell you fuel is not getting to the engine..

1989 Ford Bronco 5.0 engine will not crank. Replaced fuel filter and fuel pump, but still will not start. Engine turns over and will try to crank with starting fluid.


Timing is everything. Try testing you PCM. It's the little gray box near the base of your distributor. If you have spark, and fuel at the rail (plus good fuel rail pressure) than the timing is your problem.

Check the pet-**** on the fuel rail assembly to make sure the fuel at the rail is under presure and getting to your injectors. Then again make sure you have spark, lastly you should be able to test the trouble codes to see if your PCM is the issue.
Goos luck.
