Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Sometimes my 03 eclipse will crank but not start,,,let it sit 10min and it starts like a champ...always runs sooth and doesn't die once started....


If pumping the accelerator seems to work ( it actually does nothing) then there is an indication of a sensor failure either in the accelerator position sensor or accelerator motor. run the fault codes and replace any faulty sensors.

check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.

Drive for about 45 min It stalls i wait 20 min it starts back up


There's a possibility that your fuel pump is going out. What's happening is that you can drive for the 45 min. and the pump gets hot and shuts itself off. After it cools off, it starts working again.

89 regal won,t start but after 5 or 10 min. runs great


sounds like your fuel pump is going out. One thought might be that the fuel filter is causing enough resistance to over heat the pump. I would check the fule pressure to determine a free flow of fuel.

Car won"t start. starter turns. Happened once before. started after 30-45min.


I would start by banging the bottom of the gas tank while you are cranking it over. If this causes it to start, replace the fuel pump. If it still doesn't start, there is a valve on the fuel rail on the top of the engine (you may have to remove plastic cover). Remove the plastic cap on the valve, and while you have someone cycle the ignition to the run position from the off position, depress the center tab on the valve and see if gas comes out. If it doesn't, replace the fuel pump. If it does, let me know and I will help you further. (note: replace fuel filer at same time.)
