    What do you mean by "roll". Do you mean the engine turns or cranks slowly?

It sounds like the check valve in the fuel pump inside your fuel tank is starting to fail. The check valve keep a fuel pressure in the fuel line, so the next time you start, the pressure is there and you get a rapid start. When the check valve is bad, the fuel pressure bleeds off and the pump must build up the pressure again.
BTW- When you turn the ignition key, the term is "cranks" or "turns over" until a start condition.
Hope this helps.

Hi all,hyundai get some times power window doesn't roll back when I open door panel then It roll up for a while it does roll down but don't roll up any way to fix this


Sounds like a power window motor. Sometimes this will help diagnose your problem for the mechanically uninclined. While holding the switch to power the window while the window is stuck, just bank on the inside of the door panel for that window without causing damage. Sometimes this will jar the motor and it will start to move. This is a sign of a bad power window motor. It may also be a switch as the alternative problem but most likely the power window motor. I recommend replacing the window motor and window regulator at the same time. You can usually buy both together.

How do I get the electric window on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee to roll back up?


Jeeps are really bad for the window regulators going bad. That's your problem. No fix for them, just replace it.

My 2002 1.8 mondeo holds back on power wen driven at town speed and engine cuts of wen driving but dip the clutch and engine will run again. any ideas


Have you checked the fuel filter? It may be time for a change. In a Manual transmission when it dies any time as long as your still rolling at a decent rate of speed you should be able to push the clutch in to start the engine back on.

Sometimes when I start my car, the guages, headlights, a/c, radio won't come on


The randomness of the power coming onto the electronics is indicated by a loose wire, you should have a shop technician check your wiring, however wiring can be very costly.

Engine ran fine. Stopped it. Could not restart. Fuel pump was replaced and fuel filter. 40 psi when rolling over engine. Have compression and spark on all cylinders. Timing belt appears okay. Engine rolls...


try spraying starting fluid in the breather and see if it tries to start if so check fuel lines etc. to make sure that it is getting fuel to it.
next would be check injectors to see if they are getting voltage to them.

1999 chevy silverado 2500.6.0 l.if truck sits all week sometimes it rolls over slow and wont start.sometimes it will start.new battery starter and alternator is good.if truck does roll slow then starts...


2 things come to mind, first check and clean all battery and starter connections. second, maybe you have something draining the battery. next time it rolls slow, put on a battery charger and see what happens. also, even though it is a new battery, it still could have a weak cell.

Nissan pulsar '88. replaced starter motor, then


Is it a manual, or an automatic? Earlier Nissans sometimes have a problem with the neutral safety switch (a device that keeps the engine from rolling over in gear or without the clutch depressed.) Generally, if their bad, they need to be a little warm before they'll start, like setting in the sunlight for a few hours.

Good Luck!

Car does not always roll over, sometimes if I try quickly to turn it a few times it will start but not always.


Do you mean the motor does not turn all the time when you try to start it with the key?
this could be :
1:!gnition switch needs replacing
2:Starter motor replacing/overhaul
3:Check your wiring

Rolled my 03 Jeep TJ, I'm ok but after waiting, the engine won't start.


Some vehicles come equipped with a roll-over valve that prevents fuel from spilling uncontrollably in the event of an accident. In many cases there will be a reset switch to enable the fuel pump to operate normally.
