Question about 1996 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

96 Sunfire won't start

I have a 96 pontiac sunfire, recently my car has stalled anytime i wasn't applying gas, and now it won't start at all. On the dashboard above the P R N D 2 1 is a little orange arrow that will light up to show what gear i'm in, however every other time i get in my car the light won't go on and until it does the car won't start at all. I have checked the battery, changed the oil, air filter, and spark plugs and problem persists. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful.

My 2001 sunfire starts fine.but after i drive for about half hour it will stall and wnt start again for half hour.the oil light stays on when this happens.wassup with this?


This happened with my Sunfire. It was the radiator. The engine wasn't cooling, but the sensor wasn't showing that it was overheating. So the engine would start when it was cool, but as soon as it got hot, then if I stopped it wouldn't start again.

96 sunfire starting problems


Change the coolant sensor, it is stuck in advanced mode causing the engine timing to be out of sinc. Do not over tighten the sensor. About 5ft.lbs is enough. Good luck!
