Ck fuel rail, for fuel pressure. if no pressure replace pump and sock.

    the fuel rail supplies fuel to the injectors on electronic fuel inj. there will b a schrader valve located on it.
    cover with rag depress valve with ign on there should be apprx. 30.lbs of fuel pressure. be careful it is like letting air out of a tire. about the " sock " it is located with the fuel pump in tank it filters fuel before it goes into the pump. it is a pretty good job to drop a tank it can easily take a day to do this in a driveway
    good luck, james

Motor turns over normally when i turn the key but will not catch and run


When this happens have a can of spray starting fluid on hand, spray it into the engine air intake, if the engine starts you may have a failing electric fuel pump

2003 chevy impala, turning the key on, you hear the fule pump clicking on , lights all coming on like normal, but go to start, nothing happens, battery ok, starter ok, the garage changed the ignition ...


That would be a good place to start , I would check it with a test light first but If you do that and it starts sounds like switch or connector terminals and or starter relay in fuse box

After checking the spark plugs & changing the gauge from.060 to .040 like it suppose to be, the car will not start now. It will turn over though.


Sounds like the engine stalled and would not start long before you decided to replace or re-gap the spark plugs.

My first thought based on your previous posts is that your fuel pump has failed. What happens if you spray a little carb spray into the intake while somebody cranks it over? Does it start? Will it stay running if you keep spraying carb spray into the intake?

If that the case than I would definitely suspect a fuel issue and the next step would be to measure fuel pressure. Should be around 35-40 psi (off the top of my head). If there is no pressure the next step is to check for power at the fuel pump.

The connector for the fule pump will be behind the fuel tank on the passenger side of the gar. You will be looking for a grey wire. There will be two of them. The larger one supplies power to the pump. There should be power anytime the key is turned to the run position for 3-5 seconds. There should be power all the time when the key is in the crank position. If both of those are true than the next step is to drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump.

Hope that gets you started in the right direction.

MY 2003 V6 SONATA STALLED OUT WHILE I WAS DRIVING , IT WOULD NOT START WHILE I WAS COASTING TO A STOP BUT DID START RIGHT BACK UP AFTER I PUT IT IN PARK AND TURNED THE KEY OFF. I DROVE ABOUT 15 MILES...


This happens rarely but especially in hot weather you can get an Air bubble in the fuel line that will cause your car to stall out due to fuel starvation. This is normally resolve itself when you switch the engine off and on thus causing the fuel pump to prime itself again.

1999 Chevy Suburban 5.7 V8 Starts fine will run smooth, but will not take fast throttle. If stomp the gas it will die and pop. It will reach interstate speeds and run smoothly if only minimum throttle...


ok here we go, hook up a feul pressure guage that can be read from inside the car, and check fuel pressure while driving, if the pressure stays fairly constant then the best bet is to hook up a real time scanner with snapshot capabilities ( like snap on or bdm pro) and take it for a drive again, ti could be a sensor reading out of range but not enough to set a code

94 jeep grand cherokee stalls after the first 5 min of operation


Sounds like the automatic choke is either binding or gone bad.

On a cold start, that's why the RPMs are bumped up for a few minutes...the choke is allowing the engine to warm up, before dropping the intake mix to normal "run" level.

However, should the choke remain closed once the engine is hot, the stalling will happen for lack of air.

The choke-control is mounted on top of the manifold, near the throttle cable-cam.
Look for a small (about 3" wide X 2" deep) cone-shaped metal can with a linkage to the throttle cam.

With the engine off, spray the linkage at both ends with Liquid Wrtench and work the linkage in and out of the can a few times to check for smooth operation.
You should feel slight back-pressure when you move the linkage toward the controller.
With the linkage pushed in, spray and wipe the exposed surface inside the controller body.

Allow the cleaner to dry for a few minutes (it's just oil, I know...but if you used a spray, the propellants could be flammable) and start the truck.
Allow it ti idle at least 5 minutes until the auto-choke pulls back on the throttle...then take a short ride around the block to see if that cured the stalling.

My 2000 buick le sabre jerks and loses power while accelerating.


first scan for any codes if it comes up po 300 just a guess it could be random misfire puts the car in limp mode . the igniton modual underneath the coil pacs the coils sit on could be redy to go or if not that check fule pressure by puting fule pressure guage on shrader valve located on fuel rail on top of injector assembly and check fule pressure with fule pressure guage. car of key on pump reading should be around 48-55 key on car on reading should be around 55.minus -3 to 10psi = reading of 38 to45 only if the fule regulator has vacume line atached to it on fule rail dubble check psi reqirments in car manual for co mpleat accuracy. If it doeint have vacume line pressure stays constant 48- 55psi
