I recommend you take your vehicle to a holden dealership and get them to put tech2 on it and check for diagnostic trouble codes.

Possible cause could be a crank angle sensor.

Fuel pump

computer problem

I have a 01 pt cruiser I was driving started loosing power n hesitating. Started a slight knock at lower end of motor n stalled. It'll start up fine n idles good for few min. Then it'll stall out u can...


Lets start at the beginning.
You can have most any auto parts store scan the computer for trouble codes for free. Then take the codes and start testing.
If the oil pump was bad you should be getting an oil light on the dash, not the check engine light.
It could be a fuel problem.

A/T oil temp light comes on accompanied with battery ligh. The engine wouldn't start. Toyota 2010 4Runner limited edition


which engine?
2.7 L 2TR-FE I4 (157 hp, 2WD, 2010 only)
4.0 L 1GR-FE V6 (270 hp)
that means the engine stalled, or was real close to stall
800 rpm is lowest on most modern cars.
so ..wow you like to guess, with $100 bills>?
wow.
NOOBS 101 (posted 100s of times)
  1. get in car, turn on head lights , do they work, (yes/no)
  2. yes, turn key, does all those silly warning lights glow (y/n)
  3. does CEL glow, check engine light, if not fuses are BLOWN if above 1,2. are ok.
  4. Is the IMMOBLISER light happy, not telling you its IMMOBILZED? per oper. guide? if yes stop here)
  5. turn the key to start (all this is in oper.guide) does engine starter crank the engine over fast? (y/n)
  6. yes, then its a cranks no start issue, if no,its starter key issues.
  7. Ok it cranks, do you have spark to all cylinders of unstated engine. seen above?
  8. if yes, then try test fuel, if not fix bad spark. scan PCM, see why the scan tool can tell you why it wont start, by cranking any engine, with tool connected, 1996 to now. do so now.
  9. and more, ask for more if you can get to here.

CRANKING NOT STARTING


Sounds like either the fuel filter or the catalytic converter. You will need to check the back pressure of the exahust and the fuel pressure after it fails. This I say because you did not mention any trouble codes.(check engine light on or flashing)

I changed the crank shaft sensor but the car still wont start what else could be wrong if that was what the diagnostic said was wrong?


a bad camshaft sensor will cause a no start also. Engine Sputtering, Poor Acceleration, Stalling/Inability to Start. At low speeds a bad camshaft sensor will cause the car's engine to stall. The engine may also experience an inability to turn over, resulting in the car not starting. This may not happen all the time since the car's on-board computer will use the last readouts from the camshaft sensor to operate the pistons and manage fuel flow, which will allow the car to start; but if camshsft sensor. check engine light will be on, if its really bad.

good-day !

Engine stalling when cold then won't start


You stated that the 'Check Engine' Light came ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.
