Why does it take 3-4 turns of the key to start my car? the first time I turn it the engine turns over normal. The 2nd time it tries to start. The 3rd time it starts but dies instantly. Then it will start...


Before you start the car for the 1st time of the day, pump the gas pedal 4-5 times to push the fuel towards the engine. I had a car which needed many pedal pumps, which was common for the car but mine had a iced up carburettor.

You car starts when it has been driven as the fuel is already at the engine. You could get a higher pressure fuel pump but pumping the gas pedal will work just fine.

Hope this helps, vote for me please :)

Starting problems


Dirty fuel filter or faulty fuel pressure check valve which is located on your fuel pump sending unit. Try this test, turn the ignition on for 10 seconds (engine not running) then turn it off for 5 seconds and turn it on again then try to start the engine after 10 seconds. This will re-pressurize the fuel lines to start the engine, the fuel injectors need 62-65PSI to have them start the engine. Anything less then that and you'll have starting problem.
If it start's right up, then your ether have a fuel pressure check valve gone bad or a fuel leak at your fuel pressure regulator which is also common, but if your engine is still running 100% then i'll lean towards check valve or dirty fuel filter.

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, a dirty fuel filter will cause fuel restriction that may just be enough to the fuel pressure below 62PSI upon cold starts and a dirty fuel filter will cause the fuel pump to fail early in it's life.
Thank you for using Fixya and goos luck.

2001 Buick Regal cuts off while driving at times also won't start


The ignition switch on that model is rated @ 50amps. When I was driving my 2001 Regal LS (at 120,000 miles) and used the turn signal, the engine would die, when I switched the turn signal off, the engine ran. So I replaced the ignition switch, and all is well.

Car would not start or the engine wouldn?t even turn over.


Try removing spark plugs and turning engine over by hand with socket wrench on harmonic dampner if it spins freely probably not engine problem fluid in cylinders will cause hydro lock indicating blown head gasket or injector stuck wide open. a broken timing belt would still allow engine to turn over as your car should not have an interference engine. If engine will not turn by hand with spark plugs out susspect internal engine damage siezed bearings broken rod and so.

Starting problem


Try turning your key on and off 3 times before you start the car, if the engine starts more quickly it means your fuel delivery system is not holding pressure and when you stop your car the gas at the engine runs back to the tank. You might also see if the engine will start immediately if you turn it off then restart right away compared to starts in the morning.
