Question about 2003 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

2003 Sundifre won't STAY running

New problem - Car will start most of the time, but then quit running after 10 - 15 secs. Also, 2 of 4 gauges do not work including odometer (for the last year or so). Battery good; full tank. Changed fuel filter. Could it be fuel pump for the new problem? Do you need whole assembly when changing fuel pump or just pump itself? Could the gauges not functioning be causing this new problem?

The gauge problem sounds like the common issue on the 03-05 Sunfire instrument clusters where the stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board fail over time. It can be fixed, check out this page for more on how to get it repaired - Sunfire instrument cluster fix

2003 gmc yukon xl


Sorry to get your hopes up but I have a similar problem with my 2005 Yukon Denali. How long does the truck stay running before it shuts down? Mine started out with short spurts of the truck shutting down while driving. It slowly progressed to the point where it will only run for about 45 seconds. Originally the truck would sputter the gauges would die and then the truck would die. It slowly progressed to the point where it only runs for 45 seconds and there is no signs before hand. Does any of this happen to your vehicle? I have checked all of my cables and the main ground wires. Along with changing a few of the relays. Nothing has helped. My problem started with an electrical component heating up and quitting. Now it doesn't matter how hot it is in only runs for a couple seconds.

You do not have a timing belt- you have a chain

If the shop put in the problems, wouldn't you go back there?

2003 Oldsmobile Alero won't start


Chances are you got water inside the fuse box or a wiring harness connection.
You may have to start tracing circuits to find out what is getting power and what is not.

Car was running then just quit and won't start. 3/4 tank of gas. will turn over rapidly


Really sounds like a broken timing belt. Such a problem "sounds like" you hooked 2 car batteries to the starter at once and it seems to crank twice as fast as normal.
For sure, remove the cap on the valve cover where you add motor oil.
Take a good flashlight and peer intently inside. You will see the top of a valve and the valve spring just to the right of the opening. Have a helper crank the engine.
If it is a broken timing belt, the starter will turn the craknkshaft, but the valve will stay motionless.
