Question about 1995 Chevrolet Corsica

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Chevy Corsica 4cylinder. Car worked one day and the next the car wouldn't start. Replaced the fuel filter and spark plugs, and the car still won't start. It sounds like it wants to but can't. Keep turning the key and it wants to crank over, but stutters...could this be the fuel pump? And if it is...is there a way to have my husband replace it without taking it to a garage?

It could very well be the fuel pump. GM pumps usually go like that, one minute they are fine the next they arn't. Unfortunatly the gas tank must be removed to replace the pump. Depending on the climate the car is in this could present further problems with rusted fuel lines and even a rusted out tank. If you are in an area where it's usually dry and no salt gets used on the roads you are probably ok. Here in Michigan a vehicle of that age that needs a fuel pump usually needs a tank and sending unit also due to rust. Now for the quick check, if you follow the fuel lines to the engine, one of them should have what looks like a large valve stem cap on it, unscrew the cap and you will see what looks like a tire valve. After you try starting the car use a small screwdriver and depress the valve and see how the gas comes out. If it sprays out with a good amount of pressure that is good, if it just dribbles out or only a little bit comes out it's a bad pump. Hope this helps.

Check your fuel pressure regulator,sometimes it does not hold the pressure, also check the fuel pump for proper operation. Try to change fuel filter it could be clogged...

I have a 1995 chevy corsica 2.2 4cyc. The car turns over but will not start.


Yellow spark is usually a sign of a faulty coil, but you have two.
So if the coils are not the problem, it could be not enough voltage to the coils or something else.
The coil fires when the ground connection is removed, in your case the coil fires two cylinders at the same time.
I would check battery voltage to the coils thru the module next.

95 chevy corsica wont start. it ran fine the night before but now it turns but wont start.


As with any no start issue, you need to figure out if you are dealing with a no fuel or no spark problem to proceed.
The pump could have failed, or the filter in the tank could be plugged up.
I would make sure it has spark at the plugs and then check fuel pressure with a gauge.

Try tapping on your PCM behind your glove box,also are you getting fuel pressure and a good blue spark at the plugs when cranking the engine?
