Question about 1998 Chevrolet Metro

2 Answers

2006 gmc envoy 4.2. Car battery, alternator, and starter test fine. Just had it in for a bad fuel sensor relay. Shortly after I have noticed the car is slowly losing power during the start up. Last I tried it has just enough juice to start the truck. Tried to charge the battery and it didn't help. The battery is about two years old. Any help is greatly appreciated as I can't afford to bring it in.

Check the fuel pressure valve. fuel goes in it and out the other side it keep the pressuer right when they weaken the fuel does not get through it fast enough. and you will lose power.

SOURCE: starter needs to be changed on 2006 monte carlo

It sound to me like the starter solenoid is bad. If you can remove the starter yourself you should be able to repair the problem. You will need to remove the terminal cover from the solenoid(be careful because there are wires connected to the underside of those terminals so do not force it.) If you look at the back of the terminals you will probably see that the inside part of the bolt is burned. loosen the nuts that hold the terminals and rotate them so that the burned sections are to the outside then tighten the nuts back. (not too tight because you can break the plastic) You can test the starter before you put it back in the van (after reassembling the starter itself of course) by connecting a set of jumper cables from the battery to the starter. Negative gets clipped to any good metal tab (usually where the mounting bolts go is a good spot) and the Positive cable goes to the big terminal where you first removed the cable from. touch a screwdriver to the smaller terminal and then touch the screw driver shaft to the + CABLE CLIP (not the terminal because you can damage the threads if it arcs) Be sure to have a good grip on the starter because if it works then it will jump. And keep your fingers out of the hole where the gear (Bendix) is because when you bridge the contacts the Bendix will pop forward and will shred your fingertips.

SOURCE: Changed alternator & battery but car does not charge

make sure all those spots the wire daisy chains too arent corroded and clean and shiny bright, check all your connections and check that theres no corrosion on the bolts or mounting points. other then that you may just have a bad alternator again, autozone parts arent always the best

Cant turn ignition over envoy 2002

If you mean that the engine won't turn over to allow the car to start then you probably have a dead battery or bad starting motor or relay. Get battery checked to start. If battery is good check that battery voltage goes to starter through relay, relays go bad sometimes. Finally if voltage at starter then it is most likely the starter that is bad.

Letter C... Then starting issues?

Check the output voltage of your alternator by starting your car and place a voltmeter to your battery's + and - ... it should read 13.5-14.5 volts, or if your car won't start, have it tested at auto parts store (they will do it for free usually). Im pretty sure your alternator is ok, but it does need checked. If your voltage is within range (give or take 0.5 volts), then you need to check to see if your battery is taking charge. You can have it tested at autoparts store as well, but if your car does indeed start, and your testing it this way, turn off vehicle and let it sit for 30 min. Check battery voltage. It should read 12.5 to 14.5, (no lower than 12.5v) If your battery reads low, then it is refusing to charge and your battery is bad. If your battery reads fine, then you can run this test of your other starter components this way:

1. Make sure your battery is fully charged.
2. Check connections from battery to starter relay.
3. Make sure you have voltage going to the start side (small wire) of the relay with the key in the "start" position.
4. If you don't have voltage going to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in the start positon, then your starter switch is faulty (under dash usually mounted on top of steering column).
5. If you have voltage to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in start position, and it don't click when trying to start your car, then the starter relay is bad.
6. If your starter relay clicks, but engine don't turn over, then the starter is faulty.

06 gmc envoy starts but shuts off shortly after and wont start again for a min or two

It looks like the OBD 2 connector gets power from the cig lighter fuse in the box near the battery.
I assume the check engine light comes on when you turn the key switch on then goes off when the engine starts.
I would check the fuel pump fuse and relay for power - the pump relay gets power from a PCM fuse which could also affect the computer.
You know now that the alternator has no effect on starting, and the security system kills the starter in addition to the injectors. It can not kill the engine after it starts in most cases.

2006 GMC Envoy has 2 problems. I thought the alternator was going bad because of some battery problems. Pulled it out and had it tested. Nothing wrong with it. The biggest problem is a loud whine when...

The whine could be a pulley, start the engine, raise the hood, and then rev the engine to see if you can duplicate the noise. It could be a weak belt, or a bad bearing in either the alternator, or a pulley when the engine is under a load. Check your fuel lines and the schrader valve on the fuel rail to ensure they are good, and stop the leak. Usually a fuel leak on an engine will dissipate to quickly and you can never find it, so be thankful that you did.

Nothing power works

This is probably due to a faulty alternator, or bad battery.

Attach the car battery to a second car, using jumper leads. If the accessories work fine in this situation, then you probably need to replace your alternator.
