SOURCE: 1988 chevrolet celebrity cranks but will not start

try turning on the key and having someone stand by the GAS tank and listen for the pump to kick on? They may have to get lower to the ground to hear it turn on but they/you will know if you hear it.

SOURCE: Ignition Module Replacement for 1989 Chevy Celebrity 2.8 V6

First of all, number your wires before you pull them off. Pull the wires off, unplug the module. (You need a deep well swivel socket to get to the bolts). Also, make sure your battery cable is disconnected - being close to the starter wires. It's easier to get to from under the car. Make sure you use jack stands and be extra careful. Hope this helps.

You changed the computer because it wouldn't start? Or you changed the computer and now it won't start? Have you checked for spark?

Car runs great for 10 minutes then shuts off and has to set about an hour before restarting and will only spin over yet has spark and fuel pressure


This sounds like a bad control module, run the car until it dies then remove a sparkplug wire from a sparkplug and stick a screwdriver into it and place it near a ground then have someone spin the key as you watch for spark, if theres no spark then i would say its a bad ignition control module. this is common, when it gets hot is dies out, you can even remove it and have it tested at an auto parts store just make sure they test it a few times to get it hot. good day.

Motor starts and runs for less than a minute then cuts off and WILL NOT CRANK OVER again for 15 to 20 minutes. then it cranks over, starts, runs less than a minute and cuts off again. it has been fine...


It sound more like a plugged catalytic converter. When you start the engine the pressure starts to build until the engine sufficates then after you let it set the pressure bleeds off and lets the engine restart.

Car runs great for days, then stalls, won't start. let it sit for a while it will generally re-start run great for days, then re-occur... fuel filter has been replaced, fuel pump tested out fine, car...


No engine codes?

You might have a short in the ignition wiring or a faulty crank sensor possibly due to the accident that is just now manifesting itself.

The car runs great until the components warm up...a break occurs and then letting the car cool down allows the breaks to come back together.

You need to see what goes away when the cars dies. Is it spark? Fuel? Everything?

Good luck and be careful!

1995 BMW 540I starts well cold, then dies out after getting to normal operating temperature. Usually will not restart until cools for a long time..cranks but won't start....Jack


I would check the fuel pressure just after starting and again after 10-15 minutes (or before it dies). Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Could be a stuffed up filter, or the fuel pump could be dying. I had a Volkswagen some years ago and it had two fuel pumps, a large one up in the engine bay and a small "helper" in the gas tank. The one in the gas tank was bad but the bigone was fine, so I'd start the car normally, drive for about 20 minutes, then the car would die and not want to start again until it had cooled off. Maybe you have the same setup.

Starts when cold


You likely have a leaking fuel pressure regulator. Pull the vac line off the regulator with the engine running. If it is wet inside the vac line or you see any gas, replace the regulator.
