    Don't want to take it to a shop. I prefer to fix my own cars. Does anyone know if it may have jumped time? That is my next step if no one here can help me.

Car will not start like its not catching fire , i have a 2008 suzuki xl7


old post. but will answer.
the starter only cranks the engine, that is it's only job.
if it cranks robustly (at crank shaft pulley ,see it) then its ok.
250 RPM is typical cranking speed. RPM
no starts are complex.
for any engine Gas, to start you needs 4 things.
  1. ALL FUSE TO EFI GOOD, TEST THEM. CEL glows key on?
  2. full engine compression and crank vacuum 5" HG or more.?>??
  3. Spark , try a fresh tune up with fresh spark plugs. all 6 sparking.?
  4. Fueling , must be right. not flooding , not starving
if spark and engine are good, all engines(most) will start with test fuel.
This one simple test. proves the engine is ok, and spark is ok.
and the fuel system is dead.
these checks , will let is work the 4 systems. that might fail.
this is the classic basics path.
and works 99.% of the time.

exceptions, are clogged melted cat.
or stuck wide open EGR
or ISC stuck closed, (no starting air.) use 10% throttle to prove that.
or flooding, if flooding use super secret unflood mode (opr guide)
hold the throttle (right foot) pedal to the floor, this cuts fueling
and the flooded engine starts, for full time or runs and floods and stalls again.
This is called basics , in all ASE books in print.
RTM.

Hello I have a 97 Cadillac Seville that I am


Being that there are misfire codes, (300 series P codes), and it's flooding I would put a fuel pressure gauge on it and try to check the injectors and the fuel pressure regulator for leakage. If the vehicle has sat for a while, 1 or more of the injectors may have stuck open. If the fuel pressure is way to high it can cause the pressure regulator to leak. See if that helps.

2001 chev suburban 5.3 gas, engine dies after you start it up. It acts like it is starving on fuel. Could it be fuel pump, fuel filter or what?


try reving it after you start, if it still chokes or sputters your right. if not check your battery guage. i'd try changing your filter first because its the cheapest option. you might want to consider flushing lines too. worse case you'll need a fuel pump sending unit.

Engine died as I came to stop off hiway on off ramp, tried to start and engine would not turn over. Acted like it was flooded. left to get help and found oil cap off under hood latch area when I returned....


pumping the petal will not flood engine. Can u smell gas while trying to turn it over? can u pull a spark plug and smell fuel on it. You also do need to make sure you are getting fuel to the fuel rail first can u hear the pump come on when you turn key in the on position second with key on engine off see if fuel comes out of the port at the fuel rail careful contents under pressure.

Car started and the check engine light came on. Had previously ran fine. Died backing out of drive but restarted easily. Died again at end of street. than about a half mile it acted as if it was running...


read your code

,my advice to you is to purchase a Chilton or equivalent service manual for your vehicle,
all the necessary information to service
most any problem can be found within the pages, these manuals can be obtained
from almost any parts suppler at a reasonable cost there will be a section on how to retrieve codes and list of faults and basic repair suggestions

1997 suzuki sidekick 1.6 liter runs like 20 minutes then dies. like its not getting gas. wont start till cools down again . any help much appreciated :)


not too cool kick
is check engine light on, at key on and goes out after running?

you forgot to say, does it restart instantly after it dies.
and does it stink of raw gas after or make black smoke.?

when it dies, can you keep it going with a fast right foot>
if it dont start , right after did you try the secret
unflood mode (wide open throttle)

if car wont start , try test fuel
best is instant start in a can (spray)

key test here is car flooding or is it starving for fuel.
those are the top Suzuki tricks.

WON'T START AFTER RUNNING FINE - STARTS FINE WHEN COLD THEN AFTER RUNNING AWHILE , IF YOU TURN IT OFF - ACTS LIKE IT'S GETTING NO GAS - HAVE NEW FUEL PUMP AND FILTER -


I have the 1999 suburban, and my mechanic says that the injectors are worn, and that when you shut off the engine, fuel pressure continues briefly and the injectors "leak" a bit, flooding the engine briefly. That's why after they still start right up after a few minutes, i.e., not enough time to flood, or they start up cold, having drained any of the fuel out of the injectors. Park for a couple hours, and you've got a mildly flooded engine. Replacing the injectors is what he suggested, but that is pricey. Not sure if this is the answer or not, but it's what I've been told. Good luck!

Sputters and dies


Do you have the shop manual? You need verify the workings of each part and system one at a time. Follow the working line. You stated you checked the fuel pressure. Where was it checked? At which location? Was it checked under throttle? Does the fuel regulator check out? Is the fuel good (any water)? These problems can sometimes be a bear to find. It takes time and patience. Do one thing at a time and verify that it works properly before moving on to the next part/attack plan. Check all ground conections from the block/engine to the frame/body. Once you verify that the fuel delivery is good, start looking at emission related parts and fuel management parts (TPS, MAF, Cold start injector, EGR, etc.)
