Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 98 Chevy Metro will only start after it has sat for two hours or more. It starts right up in the morning, but if I make a quick stop, it won't start back up. Friends have advised I replace the spark plugs and ignition wires, which I did and there was no change. Another friend said I should replace the started, which I also did, but still no change. The guy at the auto parts store suggested I change the fuel filter and/or pump, but before I do so I'd really appreciate some feed back. Thanks

SOURCE: 1999 Saturn SL1 trouble starting when warm

It was the coolant temperature sensor. It was telling the car that the coolant was always cold, therefore when starting a warm engine it was being flooded. $$$

SOURCE: stalls or just wont start

i've had a bunch of hondas and usually when they dont start and then start after a while it is the main relay. as far as i know they dont make them aftermarket, you need to get them from the dealer. they cost about $85 last time i bought one. it is located on the interior, drivers side, to the left of the pedals. i think it has 7 pins and is mounted by one 10mm bolt. it seems they act up mostly on hot days. good luck!

My 2003 chevy tahoe won't start in the morning


Many possible causes....Too little info to make an intelligent suggestion. Try charging the problem vehicle's battery with jumper cables for 2 minutes with the supply vehicle running at fast idle (or about 1500-2000 RPM, if it is tachometer equipped) before you try to crank the problem vehicle on a cold morning. If it starts right up, you likely have a weak battery that needs replacing.

Wont start takes hours to start again


.When the injectors leak they flood the engine and holding pedal to the floor or waiting hours for fuel to dissipate. See if you have spark and fuel when it wont run. If there is no spark check the electronic control module under the cap

98 Chevy blazer won't start up but will crank ,,


Try giving it a shot of starting fluid. You don't say if it's actually firing. If it tries or runs for a few seconds off of the starting fluid then try changing the fuel pump relay. It's inside of the glove box on the left hand side behind the little door. If that doesn't work it's most likely the fuel pump.

Starting problem with my 98' chevy metro


Use a carb-cleaner spray on the choke assembly, and give it a good work-out to free any sticking linkage.

If this doesn't get it, replace the auto-choke valve...when's the last time you changed the air filter?
Think about it when you're shopping.

*To test: When you park with a hot engine, pop the hood and flap the choke open about halfway and try a restart.
