Sounds like a faulty fuel pressure regulator, or possibly the MAF sensor.

Was running fine on interstate, started losing power on hills, cut off would not restart


When it fails to start-- do you have spark or injector pulse or
fuel pressure-- while cranking--?

Could be a crank sensor --but replacing parts with no testing,
is not the way to go --learn how to test components

Could be a crank sensor failed, fuel pump or timing issue,
chain or belt whatever it has

Look at Professional Scan Tool Data--codes or not, that is
always where you start & check the battery out is always a first
step as well

My 94 fors Taurus cuts out while driving and sometimes will not start. It cranks but won't start. We changed the fuel pump, spark plugs and distributor cap, but it is still cutting out while driving...


are there any codes? have you checked the pressure in the fuel line. you may have a bad fuel pressure regulator. or a bad crank position sensor. spray starter in the throttle body and see if it starts

On my 1995 lincoln town car i just baught i was told that thee car ran like a champ no noises or nothing then one day he parks the car and in the morning he goes to try to crank it on and the car just...


It might not have enugh pressure to run at all. Try spraying aero start, start ya ******* or similar in the intake & see if the car runs with continual short bursts of spray. If so it is a fuel problem. you can also try to crimp the fuel return hose with a pair of pliers but this will only increase the pressure if the regulator is stuck open not if its a faulty pump

2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start


If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

My 96 crown vic police interceptor, cranks won't start without spraying starter fluid.. the car won't start without spraying starter fluid into air intake hose to carb...


starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

Maybe fuel injection?


TRY REPLACING THE FUEL FILTER , IF THAT HELPS ,BUT DOESN'T FIX IT,IT MAY BE THE FUEL PUMP,BUT IT'S DOUBTFUL IF IT RUNS GOOD AFTER DRIVING THE CAR ,THEN YOU CAN TRY CLEANING THE THROTTLE BODY,IF THAT DOESN'T HELP ,MAKE SURE TO GET THROTTLE BODY & INTAKE CLEANER SPRAY, BECAUSE OTHER SPRAYS,SUCH AS CARB OR BRAKE CLEANER, ETC, WILL DAMAGE IT ,& ALSO GET SOME MAF (MASS AIR FLOW) SENSOR CLEANER SPRAY & CLEAN THE MAF (MASS AIR FLOW) SENSOR ,TO DO BOTH YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE AIR INTAKE TUBE AND AIR FILTER BOX COVER ,WHEN CLEANING THE THROTTLE BODY YOU NEED TO OPEN THE FLAP IN THE THROTTLE BODY BY EITHER HAVING SOMEONE PRESS THE GAS PEDAL OR YOU CAN DO IT BY HAND TO GET ALL OF IT, AND THE INSIDE OF THE INTAKE CLEAN,YOU WILL WANT TO PUT AN OLD RAG OR SOMETHING UNDER THE OPENING TO CATCH THE EXCESS CLEANER COMING BACK OUT,YOU CAN ALSO USE YOUR FINGER TO HELP GET THE BLACK OILY SOOT OFF OF THE FLAP & AROUND THE INSIDE OF THE TB (THROTTLE BODY) ,BUT DON'T SPRAY TOO MUCH LIKE 3/4 OF THE CAN INSIDE THE INTAKE ,BECAUSE IT WILL FLOOD THE ENGINE,& IT COULD VAPOR LOCK THE ENGINE, IT WILL TAKE A FEW MOMENTS TO CRANK,AND YOU WILL HAVE TO HOLD THE GAS PEDAL DOWN JUST A LITTLE AFTER IT CRANKS TO CLEAR IT OUT AFTER CLEANING IT ,BUT SAVE SOME OF THE SPRAY TO USE WHILE IT IS RUNNING ,YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK THE THROTTLE BY HAND OR HAVE SOMEBODY INSIDE THE CAR TO DO THIS ,BUT BE SURE NOT TO OVER REV IT ,AND DON'T SPRAY FOR TOO LONG OR THE CATS WILL GET TOO HOT AND TURN CHERRY RED, & OF COURSE THERE ARE OTHER THINGS IT COULD BE ,BUT TRY THOSE FIRST ,& IF THOSE DON'T WORK,WRITE ON HERE AGAIN ,AND SOMEBODY WILL HELP.

Car turns over but won't crank?


you might have a bad manifold absolute pressure (map) sensor. it's on the intake manifold, it weighs the air that comes in the intake (weird huh) and if it goes bad it reports a condition that doesn't really exist to the computer that controls engine functions. if you unplug the sensor and then the engine starts, you got a bad sensor. the engine computer will set a code and the check engine light will come on, but you can replace the sensor and have the code cleared. if you unplug the sensor and the car still won't start, it's not that sensor. hope that helps. failure of this sensor will definitely cause a no start condition.
