Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire
I have a 97 sunfire, and was trying to start the thing when it was about minus 30 degrees celceus outside, the car was cranking but did not start. I went to try it the next day and the starter would not even crank, so I thought I fried my starter so I replaced it, and was still getting the same problem, the starter won't crank. I tested the starter with jumper cable and the engine started for 2 seconds then shut down. I don't know where or what a fuseable link is and can't find it. Also the Theft lock light is on solid, so I don't know if this is caused from it barely starting in the cold weather. How can I tell if this is the problem. How can I tell if it is my ignition switch or fuseable link, or ignition coil.
O.K, I jump started the starter and had someone inside the car pushing on the gas padal, the car started and ran, when I turned the car off after 5 min, the same problem happened. The starter would not crank over. If my theft lock was activated the car should not rn when I jumped the starter right. I have no clue now.
Sounds like you got a little "Bad" Fuel in there. Sometimes fuel from Cheaper Stations can get Condensation in the Tanks witch Transfers to your Gas Tank and will Clog up the Fuel System. Try to get to a Good Station and Fill up Then get a Can of "B12 Chemtool" and pour it in the Gas Tank. You can get it at Wal-Mart or any Auto Parts Store. Let Me Know!
