SOURCE: Starts fine when cold, after running dies on idle then wont start

Sounds like the fuel filter is dirty and needing to be changed. It's cheap and easy to swap out.

SOURCE: 2001 gmc jimmy not starting

Did they do a fuel pressure pressure test to determine that its fuel pump? And if so what was the p.s.i.?It should be around 55 to 60 p.s.i. a few pounds under 55 p.s.i. Pump needs replaced, Your shop should have chk. this when it was there the first time. Did they by chance chg. the fuel filter, that can hinder it from starting too.

SOURCE: 2002 MERCEDEZ CLK 430 Shut off and wont start for atleast 10 mins wait???

Hi there, on the mercedes the crank sensor goes bad frequently. Its between the transmission and the engine on the drivers side about 11 o'clock position. You will need a internal torx 8 to remove the small screw that holds it, once removed see if it has oil on it, if it does change the sensor and get ready to do a engine rear main seal job because its going to happen again but not too soon. Please buy a Bosch crank sensor and no aftermarket, its going to save you future headaches.

Sounds as if you are experiencing early stages of fuel pump failure. The pump motor is getting "hot" during the 25 minute drive. After you shut the car off and try to restart it,the pump is weak and not getting the fuel pressure up enough to allow for a quick start and smooth running. I would check the bleed down time on the fuel system and the pressure to see what it is before and after the 25 minute drive time.

Electrical. wont re-start unless cold.


You probably have some corrosion on your battery terminals. Make sure they are clean and connected good and tight.
