SOURCE: Starts fine when cold, after running dies on idle then wont start

Sounds like the fuel filter is dirty and needing to be changed. It's cheap and easy to swap out.

Did you try changing the air breather for the motor?You need three things inorder for the engine to run well. Air,fuel,and spark.since you had a tune up and fuel flushed.I can only think of two things.First I never heard of flushing a fuel filter,you change it ( not flush it ) change your fuel filter,eliminate the guess work.And change your breather.

SOURCE: crank no start ,got fuel got spark, when trying to

You pinched the fuel line????
If you crank for too long to start the car, the engine will "flood", this is why the plug was wet. It had too much gas and wouldn't start.
Pull out ALL plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
HOLD your gas pedal to the floor and crank.
This will stop gas from entering the engine.
you need to get that extra gas out beofre it will start.
If you have so much gas in there you can do damage to your engine!!
Now after a few crnaking attempts with your foot to the floor, take your foot of the gas pedal and try to start it again.
But remember if it doesn't start in 3 tries, you need to do the pedal to the floor once or twice to remove the excess gas.
When you crank the car to start it sprays gas into the engine, even if it won't start. So it very easy to "flood" the engine, and then you'll have a hard time to get it going!

Car not starting, whirring once ignition engaged


Check the obvious. Shift to park (also try neutral) If you jump from the battery to the starter directly if it turns then you may need to replace the solenoid. It may also be an ignition that needs to be replaced.

Car: 94 Chevy caprice, 5.7L engine/port fuel injection Problem: very hard cold starts, rough idle at cold temperatures and stalling at low idle(when able to start after minutes of continuous cranking)...


Have your temp sensor checked. It may not be setting off a code but a sign of a failing temp sensor is hard starts, rough idle, until the car heats up. It sends a code to the ECM to help adjust fuel mixture. If it sends gals readings, the computer will adjust the fuel-air ratio and cause vehicle to run too lean until warmed up. Some people have had to keep pumping the gas pedal to keep it going from a bad temp sensor.

New thermostat spark plugs battery and coils got hot wont start water in overflow gurgling and boiling trying to turn over


It could be alot of things. If it starts when its cold and dies or idles rough when it warms up, its usually an ignition madule or a crank/cam shaft sensor. If it does not start at all it could be either one of those, a fuel pump, the ECM, broken timing chain.......ect. in other words I need a little more info in order to diagnose it as good as one can over the internet.
