SOURCE: car starts then stalls immediately

take the alternator off and have it tested at the auto parts store, this is more than likely your problem....

if it is good, then you need ot check your fuel injectors....

So you have power there, why not try a little whap with rubber hammer near it while key on to see if it will do anything. I;d try it just to see if it will come back to life.

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Optima no start after timing belt, crank, cam sensor replacement

did you use aftermarket crank sensor? if so that might be your problem. dealer has several different ones, by providing vin number, but there is only one after market for all optimas 01-05. try to connect thick pink wire and thick orange wire together on the ignition failure sensor. you might have the same problem as me. good luck.

My truck did this after I replaced the fuel pump. Turned out to Fuel Pressure Regulator. It would crank and crank but never start. It's located underneath the black plastic manifold on the side of the injectors.

GDI Engine Complaints Often Mysterious Hard to Resolve

all i know is that the inlet ports can carbon up
and need to be inspected and de carboned

GDI engine concerns:

Higher cylinder temperatures and pressures released into the crankcase accelerate oil vaporization. Eventually this causes oil droplets to coat intake valves.
Cylinder injector spray position means fresh fuel is not sprayed onto intake valves and flush away vapor build up. This build up can accumulate and bake on intake valves in as little as 10,000 miles (16,000 km).
Rings can become stuck into their lands by carbonized oil sludge. This can prevent these engine’s low-tension rings from properly sealing the piston. This also causes sludge, oil, and fuel deposits to bake onto piston tops.
Since inception, GDI engines have had known problems with coking—buildup of cooked fuel deposits that foul injectors.

1998 Mitsubishi Galant 1.8 GDI (EA1A model) starting problem. So it's not starting but turning engine over. Checked the spark plugs and they were oily. Cleaned them and still not firing. checked to see if...

Dude....putting 2 stroke fuel into a 4 stroke engine is just silly, but not where your problem lies. Check the coils to see if it is generating spark...if not then check the ignition module....even 'oily' the plugs should fire.

97 Mitsubishi legnum,runs great but takes a bit to start, thought it might be fuel pump relay as you can,t hear pump start when key is turned on, is that normal for legnums.

is your car a GDI engine? If it is GDI you can't really hear the pump working when you put ign on.
Give me some details and I might be able to guide you there.
Chassis, engine numbers, GDI ??

Spark plug location


They are right along the top of the engine going in behind the valve cover. They are deep down inside under the wire w/boot 2 of them have ignition coils on top of them (they are bolted down with 2 small bolts each) and have plugs plugged into them (1 each on outside edge) the other two are just beneith the rubber boots connected to the spark plug wire. Hope this helped you out. MWG

Fuel pump relay

Is your car a GDI or MPI? If it's a GDI version the relay is located on the firewall left hand side under the bonnet. If it's a MPI then the relay is in the fuse box near the battery.
