It might have a lick on your valve make a compression test to justify it..or you may need a tune up on your car it should cause that problem too . if it your map sensor it should trow a code in it so i probably say that your map sensor is still working as a champ.

Starts but goes dead,stARTS aagain and DOES THIS FOR A FEW TIMES THEN IT WILL RUN PROPERLY


I doubt it.
If the map sensor were faulty, you should get a check engine light and a trouble code for the sensor stored in the computer.
I would check the fuel pump relay and base fuel pressure.
The pump may not be getting power from the relay but instead only from the oil pressure switch.

I have a 2002 Trailblazer and it goes dead at stop signs,etc. Also, upon idling, floods and goes dead when the a/c is turned on. Don't know if relay, map sensor or fuel pump. Sometimes the gas gauge...


drive the truck or van to advance auto parts store near you and have them check the OBD II code sensor to see if you get any codes at all. Usually your check engine light should come on by your dash but if you have a short too that this might not come on. Also usually have autozone or advance auto parts check your altinator and battery out first when you are there. I think that the wires might be shorting out things by your engine that is causing this problem.

Hi, I usually suspect the MAP sensor when I see this symptom, but it can also be the throttle position sensor. Which engine do you have and is your check engine light on?

1992 Buick Park Avenue - car runs great..when it runs.


The crank sensor is located on the side of crankshaft damper/pulley it mounted on a bracket. However it think that you may have a map-sensor problem that's very common with this vehicle. The crank sensor is not hard to change at all. Good Luck get back in contact if you need more help

The "check engine" light will "light" when there is a malfunction in the engine management system. The fault code is then stored in the computer. The computer must be scanned to retrieve these stored faults to pinpoint the malfunctioning component. We recommend buying your own scanner and doing it yourself. With a pocket scanner you can check for fault codes to find out why the light came on in the first place. You can clear your cars trouble codes after you replace the malfunctioning sensors.
