Test your fuel pressure. Sounds like the pump is failing, that or the fuel filter. A pressure test will confirm if you have a fuel problem.

Car will not stay turned ON when cold


Try this. When you first try to turn your engine on, keep your foot on the gas pedal. The car should turn over but not start. (don't worry, its not supposed to). Take your foot off the gas and turn the ignition on again, but Don't touch the throttle this time. That should set your choke correctly. To summarise: Turn key with foot on Gas. Take foot off Gas, and turn key again.

How do I reset oil change light


For a 2005 trailblazer to reset the oil change light you will need to make sure all doors are closed then turn key on and slowly push gas pedal to floor three times within five seconds, this must be done within 5 sec, from the time you turn key on, the key must be on so all dash light are on its right before the engine start postion, after you push gas pedal to floor three times the light will flash a few times then go out. the system is now reset, if it doesnt reset then repeat steps starting with turning the ignition on, take note engine must be off, not running, have a nice day and i hope this is helpful.

Sounds like the warm start choke. It positions the carb butterflies when the car is warm and adjusts the fuel mixture.

Had oil changed at first service as light was flashing didn't take to suzuki dealership ,garage couldn't reset .how do you reset and stop the light flashing . my car is 08 suzuki swift


Okay in your owners manual look up oil service light and it will give you a few steps on how to reset it this has to be done every time you change the oil and most mechanics should know how to do it except wal mart their not certified mechanics. But you can take it to any mechanic or say like a Jiffy Lube or who ever doe's oil changes like these guys and have then help you reset the light but it should tell you in the owners manual.

Starts some times and some times not


Have the ECU tested an a garage - I suspect a temp-sender/temp-sensor is giving a bad reading to the ecu, making starting difficult in some conditions -
When the car wont start like this you can hold the accelerator to the floor while cranking the engine, keep your foot planted while turning the key, this is a failsafe start operation - it will clear the cylinders with no fuel for a second or two then slowly increase the mixture till the engine fires, it can take 15 seconds to start. this nearly always starts an engine with "minor" sensor problems.

Has been sitting for months, dead battery. door locks are jammed


Take nozzle of WD-40, stick it in key slot as far as you can, lots of spray in there and keep spraying as you pull little red nozzle out slowly, and give it a little time, and try working key, first just slide it in & out a few times then keep trying to turn it. May take 2 or 3 sprayings to unseize things.
