What you have seems like have a residual fuel pressure problem in which the fuel drain out of the line and back to the fuel tank. This creates a vapor lock situation when the car is warm. These CIS fuel systems have a hard time purging air from the system if the system is warm.

Perform a check valve test. The factory spec for fuel pressure is 75 psi running and 30 psi after 10 minutes when shut off. If your system fails to hold pressure replace the check valve. This screws into the top of the fuel pump. It is not necessary to remove the fuel tank on these car to remove the fuel pump and get to the check valve.

In the trunk there is 3 screws under the carpet that hold down the round access panel. Remove this and you will see the top of the sender assembly. Remove the sender assembly and then reach into the tank at the bottom of the tank and you will find the fuel pump assembly, lift this straight up to release it from the mounting pins and remove it from teh gas tank.

Change the check valve on the pump assembly and then reassemble.

Jeep will start and run then after you shut it off it will not start ?


NO start, but cranks ok ! (guessing i am on that cranking bit...)
no engine size stated, so cant be ACCURATE.
wont start hot. ok cold
so when hot it fails, and when hot that is when we try to fix it or diagnose it.. not cold.
so got spark on all unstated engine cylinders?
all must work not just one
ever get a full tuneup this decade or even ever?
when it dont start, did you read the oper guide.
and do the wide open throttle , cranking, and see IF the engine unfloods? (this is feature on all EFI cars).

all cars do this ignored, all do.
service it? ever?

if spark is good, try test fuel.
if test fuel works for 3seconds, or starts and runs hot, say so now?
if test fuel fails, check spark tips for soaking in fuel or bone dry.
if soaking, , its flooded,
if flooding it is, we work flooding
ask.how, (can be many reasons. more tests... )
like that....

i offer only one guess, on all cars, all cars ignored!!
eva get a tuneup?

Mitsubishi 6m 70 engine my car engine is sometime hard to operate but sometime easy operate what problem can be.


Min, You will need to break it down further as to what it is doing/not doing.
If hard to operate, do you mean cranking/starting from key?
Do you mean starting from hot/cold?
Do you mean the engine is not running correctly?
Do you mean when it drives its not right?
You have to go through the type of fault and be more accurate or get a more knowledgeable person to help before you ask the forum. We are good but not magicians.

96 corsica wont start when hot replace crank sensor and still does it 2.2 any help


nice guess. hot soak failures.
you failed
you failed to check spark, if spark is good, then it not that.
4 spark plugs tested,(ever tune it up?) and use a timing
light to see if it hits everytime and on the mark,
yes, timing lights work on cranking motors,
they do not prove spark intensity only test spark plug does that.
when hot? what's hot?

does that mean out door too hot or engine coolant.?
we have 85f temps now. air temp.. but you?
so... no location stated. make any help at all hard.
hot engine no starts.
1: engine gets hot and looses compression
2: lost spark. (yes, the Cam sensor can fail hot block. yes)
3: lost fueling, or floods,?
the tests are simple and do them in order to save huge wastes of time and guessing and huge wasted cash on useless parts.

you could just watch scotty. it gets this right. (skip ad)

There is a series of two videos addressing a very similar problem with a 1989 Corvette, first one diagnosis, second one fix. Seems like this is a not unusual problem for these older Corvettes. Check out the links.

Car hard to crank and stalling


Hi

Expensive part to fit, as a guess.!

Have an exhaust gas tested first, this will confirm that the cat converter is shot or not !

Sounds more like a sensor problem to me .

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice Please !
