1991 Saturn dohc 1.9 turns over tries to start then dies. we've replaced fuel pump,coils,battery all the sensors,fuel pressure regulator.

Find someone that knows a little about engines, Tammy. It's a 91. First is to check the engine. Compression. After that , check timing, oil pressure. Then go to tune up. Sorry to say, but you probably wasted money on a bad engine.

91 cad. 5.0 start but runs high idle for 10 seconds then dies when ck englite comes on but no codes can take neg. cable lose it do the same

Never take a battery cable off with engine running or with key in the on position-voltage spikes can kill the computer that way.

Check fuel pressure with key on. If not as specified for your car, the pump or the fuel filter may be the problem. Correct fuel pressure is critical on fuel injected engines.

91 plymouth sundance died, oil on ground, check engine on

If you feel like the engine is still ok, I would look at the oil pressure and check engine light issues.
On engines with fuel injection, the fuel pump is powered by the pump relay until the engine starts. Then the engine has to have oil pressure to keep the fuel pump powered.
Its a safety feature so if you are in a wreck the fuel pump does not keep running if the engine is off.
I would want to know why the oil pressure light is staying on and what the trouble codes are in the computer.

Fuel pump not always on

Did you reset the inertia switch that shuts pump down in case of collision?

2000 mercury grand marquis 4.6 Intermittent problem. 35,000. miles. Problem engine died several times wile driving. Also after car is parked from a drive will not start. Found that the fuel pump is not...

I'd have to test when problem is ongoing. When you first turn on key, no crank, you should hear the pump run for a few seconds then stop. For initial prime, the computer doesn't need rpm signal. Engine cranking, the computer needs to see rpm signal or it won't ground the fuel pump relay. W/o rpm signal, no spark at the plugs and no fuel injector pulse. I know your talking about fuel, but, when problem is ongoing, check spark and fuel injector pulse, engine cranking.
Intermittent problems are a pain, have to test when problem is ongoing.

I have a 91 vette i replaced the injectors because it seamed like i was pullinga trailer after the new injectors were installed it wont start just turns over, i had replaced the pump prior, it will start...

The fuel pressure need to be 48psi to 55 psi. The fuel pressure has to be correct inorder for it to start you said you have fule pressure then we need to assume the pressure is good first check for power at the injector with key on engine off If you dont have power check the engine fuse box for a open fuel injector fuse replace if there is a open fuse , then check the ground signal that comes from the ECM this should be a on off ground signal Now you check this on left and right bank since your vehicle injector is bank fired . You will also need to check the injector relays there should be 2 one for left and one for right more than likely you have the ijector harness disconnected so follow the wire to its junction and make sure its realy connected not just looks connected

I have a 1997 chevy blazer it died yesterday at a 4 way stop the engine just stopped.No engine lights or anything came on.Got it out of the road and after sitting for about 20 minutes I got it to start but...

Check for fuel pressure and check for spark during the no start condition. Also check the crank sensor, it is located behind the crank pulley mounted in the engine block on the 4.3 L engine
I hope this helps.

Buick Regal dying

You have a problem in the fuel pump relay circuit for sure then. I'm betting the relay, but it could be that dropping resistor.
