Is your security light on. If your light is on then you have a security problem that means the fuel to your engine is getting cut off. It is a security feature built for the car so no one can steal it all you have to do is tun the key to the on position and wait 10 minutes the security light will be blinking during this time when the light goes off then turn the key to the off position and then try starting the car. This has happened to me you can see it in your car manuel

03 vue sometimes wont start. every once in awhile it just turns over but wont fire try it couple times then starts. the problem has got worse to turning it over several times to where its draining the


Several components help a car start: 1) Starter, 2) Battery, 3) Camshaft sensor, 4) Crankshaft sensor, 5) Fuel pump, 6) Coils/Plugs. Start by testing each of those to ensure spark is reaching plugs on a consistent basis. If u can hear fuel pump - and you are sure fuel is in the tank (sometimes the fuel sending unit goes out, making you THINK fuel is there...). Cover each of those, and it should start...if the security system isn't being signaled to stay activated...security can also prevent a start... :-)

2002 alero ran.shut off won't restart.Replaced fuel filter,now it gets gas,but still won't start.


For some reason aleros have this problem every once in awhile. It might be the security on the alero. What you would have to do is turn the key all the way to accel i believe right before you start it and let it sit for about 13 minutes. affter this the security will recognise itself and start your car

Wont start unless give it a shot of starting fluid


It sounds like the idle air control solenoid valve is stuck open. You can sometimes remove it and clean it with carburetor cleaner. It is located on the left side of the throttle body just behind the fuel control valve, it is held on with two screws.

Turns over wont start plenty of gas


I would check the fuel relay and see if it has a good connection. Chances are it doesn't just pull the relay out and put it back in and wiggle it around a little bit. That will tell you if your fuel relay has a bad connection.

Sounds like you have bad gas. Gas goes bad after a couple months of sitting. I've gone through plenty of other options when trying to figure out this same problem, and it turned out to be the easiest problem of having old gas. Try running fresh gas straight into the fuel pump and see if it turns over then.

91 acclaim v6. starts and runs good, but once its been running for awhile (hour or so), and i turn it off, it doesnt want to start back up, or does and dies. wait 2 hours and it starts right up. recently...


Sounds like either you have a clogged fuel line and or clogged fuel filter or the fuel pump is failing. What happens when the vehicle runs the fuel pump heats up, as it heats up it produces less and less fuel for your car. Eventually ti stops working until its cool again on faulty pumps. Given the age of your vehicle I would say you need to replace both pump and filter.
