SOURCE: starts wont stay running

without seeing it here is my best answere, do you have the ability to pull codes if the cam and crank sensors are functioning properly ( no codes for them) i would then check the fuel pump fuse and relay . do you have fuel getting to the fuel rail . if u have a guage to check pressure at the fuel rail it should be above 30lbs , if you have no pressure and your fuses and relays are good then you have a pump problem provided you have not been in an accident , i believe that vehicle has a safety shutoff that might be located in the trunk .

Get under your gas tank and follow the lines. one of them should lead not far away from the tank where most filters are located. When you change it remember to release pressure by take loose the gas cap...and have some rags ready to catch some overflow.

03 subaru Legacy 2.5 won't start . Turns over but won't fire. I have replaced fuel pump , fuel filter , and the pressure regulator. Pure fuel in the intake and starts fine What could be the problem


Does it start and keep running? Or does it start and just run for a few seconds? If it starts and runs for a few seconds you need to check your fuses first. It could be the fuel pump or EFI fuse or a few others.
If you prime it and it keeps running, well, you've got me there.

Would an alternator make your car will not start


If your battery is fully charged, the car can start and run from the battery with no alternator at all. It might run 1/2 hr with no alternator.

A good test for the alternator is to start the car and then unhook one of the battery terminals. If the alternator is good, the car will keep on running without the battery. If the car turns off hen you disconnect a terminal, then the alternator isn't working.

But a bad alternator won't stop your car from starting...it will just not keep your battery charged or keep the motor running once the battery gets less than 12V

Runs for a short time and stops wat for 5mins. and strates up runs and stops


Sounds like it is starving for fuel or air. Let's check it out remove air cleaner when was it changed last? Check it is it dirty? Change it now try starting the car again. Did it run for a longer time? If so all it needed was an air filter. If it sills stalls Start it and let it run and when its about to cut off I want you to spray it with starting fluid and try to keep it running. If this keeps it from stalling you need a new gas filter. So change it and start your car it should run now. My advice to you is keep your car tuned up and change all filters.

If you still have an issue after all this we have to look else where. Let me know how you make out.

Trouble starting keeps running after turning it off


If it is chugging and running rough after you turn the key off, it may be "dieseling" which is caused by carbon buildup in the cylinders and the idle speed being higher than spec. Pulling the coil wire from the coil and the engine continues to run is a good example.

I would go with the fuel pump or the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve) Due to the fact that you have to keep the throttle on to keep the vehicle running that would be a sign of a faulty fuel pump or IAC. I would have the mechanic do a little more diagnostics before letting them cut lose on doing just one or the other.
