Really sounds like a broken timing belt. Such a problem "sounds like" you hooked 2 car batteries to the starter at once and it seems to crank twice as fast as normal.
For sure, remove the cap on the valve cover where you add motor oil.
Take a good flashlight and peer intently inside. You will see the top of a valve and the valve spring just to the right of the opening. Have a helper crank the engine.
If it is a broken timing belt, the starter will turn the craknkshaft, but the valve will stay motionless.

The fuel pump on my 1999 GMC Sierra is not working.


Never tried it, but it should work because it\'s a pain to drop the tank and eyeball it. Electric fuel pump in the tank... ok. It\'s a motor and motors draw current right? One could -possibly- yank the fuse and replace it with a ammeter (DVM on Amps). If the circuit is complete, it should pull 3-4 amps minimum when the pump is running I\'d think. If the circuit is open, it won\'t draw anything, zero or close to it. There may be a small draw from other stuff that\'s on the fused power but the difference should be obvious. Better yet, drop the meter into the relay contact circuit. The only thing that should be on that one is the fuel pump itself. Put one lead on the +12 battery and the other lead into the contact block that goes to the pump. It should turn on. If you\'re squirmish use a pigtail fuse at about 4 amps. The coil and contact arrangement is usually printed on the side of the relay. If not, the contacts are usually on beefier terminals than the coil. If all else fails, get the chassis service manual and look up the color codes.

When you start engine you have to give it gas or it won't start


replace your fuel & air filters, add some fuel injector cleaner to gas tank, todays fuel w/ ethanol is hurting your engine, change your oil also.

97cc baja doodle bug won't start


Assuming that the engine can be turned over with the starter, the most likely culprit is it's not getting enough fuel, especially if it's been sitting for 6 months or more. AT YOUR OWN RISK, remove the air duct after the air cleaner and pour a shot-glass full OR LESS of gas directly into the carburetor or throttle body. It should start and at least run briefly. If it does, then add at least 3-5 gallons to the fuel tank. If you've run out of gas, then adding just one gallon is not enough. Today's fuel-injection systems have pressurized fuel lines which need at least a gallon just to fill all the pumps and filters between the tank and the engine. Good Luck, TechJoel

Driving in 105 degree temp, truck quits! What happened?


If the engine won't crank with compression in the cylinders, either the head gasket has blown or something else major has happened.
You will have to get it towed to a shop.
If it cranks normally but won't start, you have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Did the temp gauge show it was overheating before it died ?

2001 chevy malibu. I filled up with gas this morning and didn't get very far and it died. Won't start back up. What could it be?


Hello! I'm not so certain that the filling of the tank and the fact that the engine died and won't start are related...Lets get a little background...Has the car been running poorly; Or was everything in tip top shape, and after filling the tank it quit? Is the Check Engine Light on now? Any idea how many gallons you pumped in; And the octane you used? And lastly, was it an often used gas station?

Car has been sitting; will turn over but won't start. Used starting fluid and car starts but quits. Won't fire without starting fluid. There is fuel in the tank. Help!!


My first thought is to check the fuel pump operation.
Check to see if fuel pump is getting power.

This is how I check the pump.

Usually there is an in-line fuel filter that can be removed.
While its removed...bump the starter to see if gas shoots out the gas line.
If not, there might be a clog at the pump...or the pump needs replacing.

Hope this helps...

Car will start but won't stay running


Is the Check Engine Light on/ If yes, go to AUtozne & get codes read and report them here.

Also, try cleaning the MAF sensor and throttle bdy with spray carb cleaner.

Check for 40 psi of fuel pump pressure. Can you hear pump hum for 5 seconds when key is turned to ON? Listen at tank at rea of car, pump is in the tank.
