Why won't my 2005 Pontiac Vibe start?


Did you do any testing, before replacing anything? Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and check fuel injector pulse. Before you replaced anything, did you check for applicable trouble codes?
If there is a problem on wiring circuit, somewhere, replacing parts won't fix it.
If you had a mechanic working on this, I'm surprised it wasn't fixed?

My fuel pump seems to be pumping gas but my van wont start 02 chevy venture cranks gets fire an gas but wont start


Just because it pumps gas doesn't mean it is at the exact pressure it should be? Most fuel pumps have a psi of 40 to 45 psi, your fuel pump could be pumping at 25 psi or less which is not enough to start your car even though you can see some fuel pumping out. A simple tool to check fuel pressure can be bought at any auto parts store, check the specs on the fuel pump for your 02 Chevy first to see at what pressure it works, then use the fuel pressure gauge to check it. Anything less than what the specs on your fuel pump are suppose to be and you have a bad fuel pump?

Let's say your fuel pump works at 43psi, you hook up the fuel pressure gauge and you find that it reads 25 to 30 psi, that means it's not enough fuel pressure to start your engine.

VEHICLE CRANK, DOES NOT START Change fuel pump, crank and cam sensor, unable to get orb code


Does yours have a theft deterrent system ? SECURITY light on dash ! Before replacing parts you suppose to test for spark at a spark plug wire . check for fuel pressure . You really should take this to someone who knows what he is doing . You already spent more then it would have cost at the dealer !
The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table is an organized approach to identifying a condition that causes an engine not to start. The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table directs the service technician to the appropriate system diagnosis. In order for the engine to start and run, the correct amount of good quality fuel must be properly delivered to each cylinder. The timing of the valve train operation in relation to piston position is also critical, as is mechanical compression of the air/fuel mixture.
The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table assumes the following:
?€¢
The battery is completely charged. Refer to Battery Inspection/Test in Engine Electrical.


?€¢
The engine cranking speed is acceptable. Refer to Engine Cranks Slowly in Engine Electrical.


?€¢
There is adequate fuel in the fuel tank.


When you turn the key to the on position does the check engine light come on an go off after a few seconds ? Did you check EFI relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . Why are you unable to check for OBD 2 codes ? Don't you have a code reader ?

Feul problem


Lots of things could cause a no-start, Hendrik. Is your "Check Engine" light on? If so, please have someone get the OBD error codes from the car's computer.

Does it crank but not fire?

If it doesn't crank, check the battery condition, battery connections, ground connections to frame and engine block, starter solenoid, starter motor.

If it cranks, doublecheck your fuel pump installation. Make sure the new fuel pump is properly connected and properly electrically grounded. Look for a fuel pump fuse. Check for proper fuel pressure at the fuel rail, check the fuel flow rate. Check for spark, check or replace spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor, plug wires. Check valve timing, replace timing belt or chain if necessary. Check compression.

1990 cadillac fleetwood die when iddling and sputters at stops.


Sounds like you might have a weak fuel pump.You need to check your fuel pressure you didn't say which engine it has but if its a 5.7 you need 9-13 psi with the engine running.If its not within the specs then replace the fuel pump and filter.

My 2002 chevy 1500 van , 4.3 liter v6, will not fire. ran great, no signs of trouble leding up to now. Cranks,cranks, & cranks but no sputter, fire, anything


I would check and be sure I had fire to the plugs and fuel to the throttle body. I read what you wrote about the fuel pump but then on the end of the description where you put gas in the van the pump might not be working. If so you could have a bad wire to the fuel pump or a plugged fuel filter. Once you verify those items I would pull the 02 sensor ahead of the catalytic converter in the exhaust and make sure the cat or muffler is not plugged. If they are it will put back pressure on the engine and not allow fuel into the cyl. to fire.
