SOURCE: Vehicle dies while driving down the road.

could it be the A/C pump kicking in. might be boging down the motor or electrical circuit, not letting the injectors get enough power. This could happen if the bearings are going bad in th A/C pump or there is a short in it. Just an idea. sounds like you have done the main components.

I had the same problem after it sitting over the winter. I changed the fuel filter and added water remover to my gas and let it sit over night for the water remover to work and the next day it ran fine.

2002 taurus cranks but wont start . The starter went the other day, I replaced it and it now cranks like crazy but wont fire up, could it be the pats?

No can't be PATS . PATS on your vehicle disables the starter . Pull a spark plug wire an check for spark , do fuel pressure testing etc...

2002 Chevy Blazer with starting problem. It will start sometimes but mostly not. Runs great when it does start. Starter cranks fine. Has new fuel filter and gas lines.

You need 3 things for your vehicle to start and run.. Fuel, spark and air. If you've recently replaced the fuel filter I'd have the fuel pumps electrical connections checked out. It could possibly be on its way out. Also check all spark plugs, wires and coil pack to make sure nothing is damaged on the "spark system". Then of course make sure the filter is clean and that all of your sensors monitoring the air flow into the throttle body are connected. From personal experience though, I'd say it sound like the fuel pump isn't always doing what it should upon initial start up and that's where I'd direct my attention.

Battery, Starter or Something else?

There are three things ANY vehicle needs to start! Fuel, Spark, Air!
I would start with spark! it would be easier to check spark if you buy an extra spark plug! Pull the spark plug wires off one at a time and plug the extra spark plug into it. Set the wire and plug down away from moving parts! have someone crank the engine over once or twice. if the plug sparks, plug it back in and move to the next one! If it still has problems with a newer battery, I would rule out alternator! Follow the fuel line in the engine and look for a little screw on plastic cap on the fuel line! This is a pressure valve. After turning over the engine a few times, take a pen or small screwdriver and press this valve in. Fuel should spray out pretty good! If it has low pressure, fuel pump may be bad!

My mitsubishi eclipse 95 gs wont start and theres no light on my dash bored it will cranck but wont start at all i need help asap

Since the engine cranks, the battery, starter motor/starter motor solenoid are most likely
good, so suspect everything else on the list. When you narrow it down, re-post with a
more specific question about that particular component, since 100s of components must operate
nearly perfectly for a vehicle to actually start.

Chevorlet express 1500 want turn over

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Please do check the battery if it's fully charged. If it's not, have it charged for if it's weak there will be insufficient current for the starter to kick the flywheel.
If it still fails even the battery is fully charged then the problem can be on the starter, ignition coil or ignition switch. I strongly suggest that you have it looked at for this will require an on hand trouble shooting by an expert mechanic.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Car will not start. it cranks but won't turnover. have lights so thinking it's not the battery. could it be the starter?

If your cranks, the starter is working. If the engine doesn't start, then you are either not getting spark or fuel.

If you can borrow a fuel pressure guage, that would tell you if your fuel pump circuit is working. You can check for spark by inserting a spare spark plug into one of your connected spark plug wires, and ground it to a metal part of your engine.
Good luck on your hunt.

Car cranks but wont start

replace your injectors. your vehicle is getting the fuel to start from the starter fluid. however the injectors arent giving it the gas that it needs to stay cranked
