Question about 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis

1 Answer

Car won't start. Good fuel no crank

My 2001 began having issues after I raced my friend down the street. Then I heard a squeeling coming from the serpentine belt somewhere. Later that day it seemed as if I could not get above 40 and it was hard to accelerate. I probably drove it another 4 times until it stalled while I was driving. Now it wont even crank. I hear the fuel pump prime also. maybe bad cpu or starter? Also I tried jumping it and no luck, still didn't even crank a little

Try removing the drive belt and hand spin each pulley to see if any are locked up . A frozen accessory could cause what your describing. If one is frozen, with belt still off, try to crank and start the car.

    I did what you suggested and all of the pulleys spin freely except for the main engine pulley. I figured this isn't actually supposed to move but I may be wrong. I then tried starting the car with the belt off and same issue. No turn whatsoever.

    Then it sounds like you may have internal damage. Here is a quick check, get yourself a paint filter from ahardware store, have a drain bucket under your oil drain and drain oil thru the paint filter, after the oil is drained check the filter for metal material.

check the fuel pump relay! It sounds like it is one of your relays. If it was an electrical or sensor problem, the check engine light would be on.

It sounds to me like you replaced everything but the most likely cause of a stall while driving...The crank sensor.

Sounds like a fuel delivery problem.
Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail with a fuel pressure testing gauge to see if it meets spec.

Have you check the fuel filter?
Is there any spark on the spark plug cable? If there isn't any spark, you might check the ignition coil and ECU

2001 Oldsmobile Alero, Passlock 2


There have been alot of this type problem you describe. That body style of GM car has had meny ignition issues with the PASSLOCK 2 system. The system for some reason thought it was being stolen, and shut down. The security light might not blink or come on at all in some cases. It should but may not. (if there are issues with the BCM (Body Control Module) or ECM (engine Control Module) The Chime you heard may have been a security reset indicator notice. Thlling you that the Security System incountered a problem,and was ready again.

I have a 1991 740 volvo, was driving down he street and it died,after i pulled over it wouldn't start


Check if you still getting fuel and sparks, two items need to keep the car running. Check fuses and fuel pump relay, if needing new relays go to the junk yard and get couple of them for nothing. Checking making sure you getting fuel and fuel pump working properly, unplug the the main coil wire to distributor so the car wont start we just want the engine just to turn over. under the hood, locate fuel filter, disconnect the line to or from it, wrap the bottom of the hose with old clothe firmly and to remember to point the house downward away from your face so it wont splash at you. and have a friend turn ignition over just like starting, see if the fuel come out with good pressure. if fuses and relay check out, your crank sensor may be bad, being 91' strong possibility. crank sensor send info to computer telling to send fuel to your injectors. For sparks, make sure you plug the main wire to distributor back. pull one plug wire and get spare plug, plug it and ground the plug and have a friend turn the engine over and see if you getting sparks, do not touch the plug, big shock. No sparks, check the coil if you getting 12v, if yes, than your cam sensor is faulty. The cam sensor work just like the crank sensor but telling the computer to send sparks to the distributor. Common for older European cars, crank and cam sensor tend to become faulty after years of service due to age and heat abuse.
