Question about 1993 Chevrolet Corsica

1 Answer

Took 5-10 min to start 4 few days. Ran. Now dont start.

For a few days It took me like 5-10 minutes cranking it on and off to start. It would start eventually, then run fine. I took it to the gas station and it wouldn't start as I tried to leave. When I try to start the car it only cranks like once then it makes like a hmmmm/buzzing noise which is when i would release the key in fear its hurting something. New starter? Its a 1993 Chevrolet Corsica. Should I just scrap the ***** for money and buy another car or should I get new parts? I bought it for $500. Wasn't really any problems with it other than using engine coolant quick and overheat but then I just put more coolant in and its fine.

    sounds like the starter is just worn out, a rebuilt one shopuld not be more than $50.00, if te car runs well and isn't all dented up then $50 for a reliable car seems like a low price.

Sounds like you need to clean the battery terminals and check and see if the battery needs charging or replacing. Good Luck.

Have a 99 Frontier 3.3. Started running real rough, bucking and jerking. Didn't idle. Hard to start when warm.

I have seen a few crank sensors do this. When I pulled them, they had a small crack in them. Don't know where yours is. But guessing under the harmonic balancer.

Car wont start. took a fuel injector out and put the same one right back in and it ran for 2 days fine now wont start again, what is the problem?

A possible fuel pump pressure issue. You will need to have a garage check the fuel line pressure. The engine requires more fuel on cold start and a failing pump may not be able to cope with supply. This may also be apparent at high revs, but not as apparent as cold start.

Truck having trouble starting.

With the engine running remove the positive battery cable, if the engine continues to run the alternator is good and the battery is probably bad. If the engine dies then the opposite is true.
