If air filter is the round type then remove it and see it the black cone on the end of it didn't come loose and **** up inside the filter so it is blocking air to the Mass Air Flow Sensor. If that is ok then clean the MAF sensor bulb with a good electrical cleaner then let it air dry before hooking back up and see if this corrects it.

I started my car this morning and it ran fine for about 4 min. then died. try to start it again, and it wont fire off.


start simple check gas and fluid levels look for loose connections in wiring are you using remote starter? check for fuel pump noise have someone turn on the key while you remove gas cap listen for humming sound when ignition switch is in run note fuel pump will only stay on for 2-3 sec unless starting car

Car will start for a few seconds then dies.


Still sounds fuel related to me. Getting minimal fuel enough to start & or rev, but not maintaining proper pressure required. Try this. Get a can of WD-40 ready, remove air intake hose at throttle body. Start car & when it starts to begin to die, spray some WD-40 into front of throttle body & see if engine continues to run, as long as you keep giving it squirts of 1-2 seconds. If it does, change fuel filter first, but be prepared to do pump too. If you can get a fuel pressure test done on it, that would be even better. Let me know what happens.

2000 silverado will start but wont stay running just dies.


I also agree it sounds like a fuel pump issue. Its easiest to remove the box (6 bolts {need impact wrench} disconnect wires at plugs and disconnect gas filler hose) and lift box up. A hoist is easiest but 6 people can lift it easily. The fuel pump can easily then be replaced. Takes about 1 1/2 hrs. to do entire job this way and its so much easier!
Good Luck!

1992 plymouth grand voyager wont stay running


i can tell you its not the fuel pump.if you smell fuel then the pump is working right,you may have a weak crankshaft sensor though which would keep it from starting and running. but its definately not the fuel pump maybe you have water in your gas
