Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Buell Lightning city. It has run perfectly until today. The fuel pump runs and the engine starts but is only running on 1 cylinder. It will only stay running if the throttle is engaged. Any help would be appreciated

Sounds like blown valves. Have it checked for cylinder compression.

SOURCE: 91 Camaro RS V6 starts, but won't stay running

I'm willing to bet you have bad fuel injectors. Back in 91 they had a problem with on injector shorting out causing the rest to short out. I have a 91 that had the same problem, and my injectors were junk.

Aftermarket fuel pump failure? Try "thepartsladi" store on eBay for low price GM OEM parts. Could also be wiring harness to fuel pump.

Jeep liberty 2005 crd start and engine goes off after four seconds

To start with, most models have a fuel pump relay that gives the pump voltage until the computer sees that the engine is running.
Sounds like the computer is not knowing the engine is running, so there is no power to the pump after it starts.
It could also be something with the anti-theft system.

2005 ford explorer spot trac acts like is running out of gas but has 1/2 tank


sounds like a combination bad vacuum leak and/or fuel. find the egr valve and temporarily plug the line going from and to it and test it, check all your vacuum connections, you would hear it hissing. those plastic vacuum connectors get brittle and crack about this time . Ive had a few electric fuel pumps fail that way, half dead. bout time for one of those. check fuel pressure also.if it threw a code and the check engine light is on then you can have the code read at autozone for free.

I just changed the two belts that run my engine and the water pump and the idler pulley. I have a 2003 bmw 325i. It was running great since we did the repairs for about 1 month now! Now all of a sudden my...

When you say that it tries to start but does not turn over - I interpret that to mean that the starter is cranking the engine, but the engine fails to start. Is that correct?
The ignition on these cars occasionally looses a single coil, but is not prone to loosing all ignition on all cylinders at once, so probability indicates that the problem is lack of fuel delivery.
This car is prone to two fuel delivery problems: 1) Failure of the fuel transfer pump that moves fuel from the driver side tank to the passenger side tank where the fuel delivery pump is located. If the car runs out of fuel when the gas gauge registers 1/4 full, and runs again if you add more fuel, this is the problem. 2) Failure of the fuel delivery pump. This is less common, but my wife's '04 330 lost a fuel pump at 80k miles, so it can happen.
