Question about Holden Apollo

Open Question

Apollo use to cut out on occasion out of the blue? Now for no reason at all it wont start? it has fuel and everything works except motor wont ignite ? it turns over ok but wont run ?

My Apollo 1991 wont run it has fuel and is turning over at the key but it just wont ignite and run? Ive cleaned the spark plugs and it has made no difference. It use to cut out for no reason in the past but that was only after sitting a day or so without use? I thought maybe it was a fuel problem but the tank is full. Can you tell me what you think it maybe and what i can check or do to get it running ? Thanks Jon

It sounds like you have a security problem, I had the same thing it would fire and run for half of a second and then that was it if anything at all. Had the security system rebooted, now it starts and runs fine.

You most likely have no injector pulse,this is caused by a bad cam sensor,or pick up coil,or crankshaft sensor.

SOURCE: We have a 3.2 DiD

You generally only get white fuel smoke from a diesel when one or more cylinders aren't firing. If it were injecting more fuel than can be burned into a cylinder that is firing you'd get black smoke. You can get gray smoke from a cylinder that is firing cold or late, but blue obnoxious smoke is more common with late injector pump timing. Dirty/failed injectors also generally make a rude blue smoke.

Run a can of Diesel Kleen through it. If you can't get it where you are call a local truck service and ask what they recommend for cleaning the pump.

Check and keep watch on the oil and coolant- white smoke from a warmed up diesel is usually coolant that is getting into the combustion chamber, typically from a failed head gasket or cracked head/block.

If you see any oil floating on the surface of the coolant, or if the oil starts to look milky, this motor must be serviced and the issue found or it won't last long.

The engine just dies when going down the road and when I try to re-start, the motor won't turn over. Why is this happening?


You didn't tell us is you have the 4 banger, 3.0 or 4.0 V6 engine.

The engine can stall for a number of reasons. For a engine to run it requires air, fuel, compression, and spark at the proper time. I doubt air is the problem. The fuel pump may be cutting out (bad pump, bad relay, bad pump wiring inside the tank (my 93 3.0 Ranger had the last issue). The engine stall could be a lack of fire to the plugs. A bad (cracked) coil, ignition module problem, EFI computer or wiring problem, or maybe an ignition switch problem. The starting system is somewhat isolated and pretty much separate from the ignition system in general. This makes me suspicious of your ignition switch.

I have a 2002 sunfire... and i have trouble turning it on. Once it startes it is stuck there because it will not turn at all. Once it is in this position the wipes wont work, the windows wont roll down,...


sounds like you need a new ignition, reason nothing works cause once it doese turn over n starts the car the tumbler is stick in the starting position jus not far enough to keep the starter engaged but far enough the it still trying to go trough the start process which cuts the power to everything else till the ignition returns to the on postion

did you try jus turning the ignition far enough to when the starter engages jus let go of it so the car doesnt start and see if everything else still doesnt work if it dont i belive its the igniton

also with out starting it or engaging the starter as in just turning the key on to get power does anything work?

My 2002 v8 lincoln navigator starts but wont stay on...the motor shakes real bad and then cuts of...it just started today...what could it be??


These problems can cause by several different reasons,
Engine needs air-fuel and sparks to keep running.
Ignitions and fuel system inspections will be good place to start and if you have any engine warning light on your dash the best thing to get the code read out to get first idea what is causing the problems you have!!

Daughter ran 97 ranger out of gas, now it wont start, reset the fuel pump button and have gas shooting out of releif vavle, but still wont start, tried many times. Please help. Thanks


You have fuel at the rail, now it's time to see if it's making it past the injectors. Disconnect the air intake duct from the throttle body. Have an assistant crank the engine over while opening the throttle slightly. Spray starting fluid into the throttle body and see if the engine attempts to start. If it does, then the injectors are not firing. The reason the injectors are not firing could be :
1. Blown injector fuse (sometimes marked "INJ").
2. Bad crank sensor.
3. No power to computer.
4. Computer problem (bad injector drivers).
If you have tried to start the vehicle many times, then you should start to smell fuel if it is getting into the engine. If you smell fuel, then let it sit for a while and try checking for spark. An inexpensive spark tester can be purchased from most parts stores. The reason for no spark could be :
1. Blown ignition fuse (sometimes marked "IGN").
2. Failed ignition module.
3. bad crank sensor.
4. bad ignition switch.
If everything checks out, then try disconnecting the battery for at least 20min. the longer the better. If the engine still wont start, then more advanced diagnostics will be needed to determine the problem. I hope that this information is helpful and thank you for using Fixya.com.
WARNING : Wear safety glasses when performing the starting fluid test. Keep hands and loose clothing away from moving engine parts and cooling fan motor. Use caution when working around distributorless ignition systems. These systems produce extremely high voltages which can cause severe injury or even death.
