SOURCE: My car sometimes won't let

This is probably the ignition lock cylinder worn out or getting old. The TDM is most likely not locking the key in, but new cars are pretty tied into themselves. For now, just try leaving the key in. Use another one for the doors. Some cars have a small hole under the steering wheel/column that you can stick a pen or something in to release your key. Maybe just be ready for something else breaks, then you'll know what is wrong.

SOURCE: car won't stay running after sits overnight and runs good after you do get it started

In the morning, turn key to on position for 5 seconds. Do not crank.Then turn off for 5 seconds. Repeat this about 5 times. Then try to start. If engine starts right up, the fuel pump check valve is bad. Meaning all fuel in fuel line is returning to the tank when car sits overnight. The only fix is to replace fuel pump. If that doesn't work, replace coolant temp. sensor for the computer. About a 12.00 part.

SOURCE: have to boost then it won't stay running

just had the same problem and i ended up having to change the altenator, for 2 or 3 weeks i would have to bang on the altenator with a hammer while it was running because my battery light would keep coming on. but after a few taps with a hammer you could actually here it start working again. i did that one to many times and broke the housing on the altenator and eventually had to replace it.

1992 Dodge Stealth SOHC - no problems, running great, then I replaced the distributor (forgot to mark it) & now the car won't start up. It'll turn over, even got it to start once but won't...


put number 1 cylinder at top dead center and drop in distributor so the rotor points to number 1 on cap. may have to try several times as gear moves when lowering dist.

2003 Dodge Durango (5.9L V8) won't stay running unless you keep your foot on the gas.


Check temp sensor and TPS, throttle positioning sensor.The power control module,"pcm.is a possible thought.Just check all connections. It is always a good idea to spray WD 40 or equivalent in the connections.

My asb light comes on when starting and stays on. Lights won't come on , power locks won't work, power windows won't work, radio won't work. All fuses are good and car runs fine.


Those are all really common symptoms of the alternator going bad on those cars. I would have it checked to make sure it's charging properly.

WONT WHRIL OVER TO CRANK UP AND SMELLS GAS


[ Start over ]

The engine won't turn over at all ?

Or it just won't start ?

You have to know what the main issue is
& how to diagnose,we can only guess
up to a point.

Also-- what about how it has been starting &
running for the last several months?

What about preventative maintenance--spark
plugs,O2 Sensors,fuel filter,fuel pressure,stored
codes,fuel trim when it did run.

Those are things a professional checks,hopefully
on a road test with a scan tool & a helper along for
the ride.

How do you clear codes for 2004 saturn ion


Clear the codes AFTER a repair was made & the light
stayed on ?

I would purchase an inexpensive $60.00 code reader &
use that.

If you start disconnecting batteries on every vehicle you
do or will own,then bad things happen.

The radio won't work,the car won't start,etc

If you have service manuals to learn your vehicles systems,
then you can eventually know what the results will be

Again,if you fixed nothing,then the light is going to stay on
or come back

99 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0L Car will start but won't stay running unless you keep giving it gas


I had the same problem. My car sat for a few days and when i went to start it i heard an extremely loud pop (kind of like a backfire). After that it would start and sound fine, but die 2 seconds later. Thank god my bf is a mechanic he knew instantly that the pcv valve hose that connects to the intake manifold unplugged itself. He plugged it back in and it runs fine now. I didnt however get a check engine light, but i only tried to start it twice before he fixed it because i was scared it jumped time.
