SOURCE: hard start

Its your fuel pump.I had the same plomblem not too long ago.I was spraying either in to start it.I have a 97 chevy truck witch requires 65 psi to start and 55 to run properly.You need to find out much psi you need to start it.You can probaly look in your manual or just make a few calls.My truck had 55 psi and it ran fine i just had to get it running first.Good luck.I wonder if that fuel pressure regulator was a waste of time like it was for me.

SOURCE: starts then quits

Was there fuel pressure before you changed everything? It could also be the pressure regulator sticking or bad. When you crank it over and let off the key you should hear the fuel pump run for a couple seconds and then shut off. If it is doing that then I would be looking to see if you have likes hooked up wrong at the back of the engine or try replacing the pressure regulator.

SOURCE: 2004 chevy cavalier wouldnt start replaced fuel

Check your O2 sensors. They will give that affect and work only when your engine heats up. If the car cools down and starts up again, that is a sign that your O2 sensors are shot. Replace them.

Long story short I will give you the hows and not the whys.
  1. Remove the positive and negative battery cables
  2. wire brush the posts on the battery and the inside of the cables untal they are silver all the way around
  3. reconnect and MAKE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT.
  4. If possible remove caps and add tap water(it's OK) till all cells are 1/2 inch. from the top replace caps.
  5. You may try a start. If not
  6. check batt volts should be 12 or more volts. red to pos back to neg on volt meter. no volt tester
  7. charge battery and try start. If not
  8. follow the batt cables to there ends and clean and tighten them, Try start. should be ok, if not get back to me and we will continue

1996 audi a4 wont start


What happens when you try to start it? Does the engine turn over or is it completely dead? If you don't hear the engine turn over I would check to see if your battery is charged. If it isn't it's likely alternator went out. Report back if it's turning over (meaning the battery and alternator is good)

97 toyota avalon was running went dead while driving ,now wont start lights go dim,abs light and traction lights come on when jump started


Sound like you have a bad alternator, poss bad battery too.If you can jump start it with a volt meter check voltage at battery should have above 13.5 volts, do this after you unhook jumper cables and engine running.If bad voltage reading replace alternator make sure you charge battery before starting engine with new alternator or it could damage alternator.If good voltage have battery check.Hope this helped.

I was driving down the road and my motor stopped


the alternator may of went bad and stopped charging so the car died when the battery went dead. Charge the battery and test to start with. Are you saying wont turn over ot turns over and wont start. If it turns over and wont start then it could be several things. Will need to get it diagnosed to be sure

Guages when crazy. Now won't even try to start.


You likely have it repaired by now but it sounds like a classic case of oxidized battery or cable connection (sometimes mis-diagnosed as bad battery but cured with new (clean) battery)

The throttle body needs cleaning. It has some carbon build up, and when the battery went dead the computer lost its learned values, one of which is base throttle position. Now its reset back to factory specs, not accounting for a dirty throttle body. Seen it a million times

98 celica battery went dead replaced now it want crank


Try this: Unhook the battery. Reconnect the battery. When the horn starts to beep, cycle the ignition key in the ignition on-off 5 times. This resets the alarm; the cycling of the key. Please advise me if this works for you.
