I would start with the cranksahft position sensor if the car has over 60,000 miles, very popular part to go bad at that mileage.

86 4.3 4BC 1500 Chevy Die rolling up to light Started up and ch of fuel and it died 3 times now no start smell fuel and quit yellow spark Have replaced cap rotor plugs wires EGR coil ECM Rebuilt carb


It sounds more like a fuel problem to me then a bad coil or spark ign the spark should be blue but its hard to see in daylight
You say you rebuilt the carb are you sure your main mixture jets are at least 2 to 3 turns out off the stops .
Try pouring fuel down the barrel fill the float bowl if it runs then dies its fuel don't let it catch unfire you should have 45 sec. of run time then adjust the the mixture screws 2 turns is base but when its is running good turn them in 1 at a time and give it 30 sec. to adjust until it starts to stumble then back it out a 1/4 two 1/2 turn then repeat on bank 2

1995 cirrus car will not start will turn over has fuel to the rail has fire to the plugs it just died on us with no indication stuck in Georgia with wife and two kids need help asap any help would be...


Check for a fuse for the injectors. Pull a sparkplug or two after cranking the car over and see if they are wet with gas, as they should be. When you checked for spark, did you see a good blue spark? An orange or weak spark could indicate an ignition problem. Other than that, I don't know-may have to have a shop diagnose it.

Car died. changed fuel pump and both filters. car will turn over but will not start. any help is appreciated.


Check for spark and fuel as a starting point. If you're getting fuel pressure at the rail, then the fuel pump and filters are not the problem.

Possible crankshaft sensor if the spark is not getting to the spark plugs in the 1992 Buick Century.

Have a 1993 gmc sierra. runs fine most of the time . but will just kill sometimes out of the blue. does not matter if it is warmed up or cold. when it dies will just turn over but not start. replaced spark...


When this truck dies,does it have spark,or fuel pressure?Check it for no spark,if it has no spark,replace the ignition module.These gm year models are bad to go out ,and the distributor pick up coil also.Replace the module first,if this does not help,replace the pick up coil.NOW ON A FUEL RELATED PROBLEMit could be fuel pump,fuel pump relay,or the pick up coil.The pick up coil pulses the injectors,and the spark.I hope this helps,if not let me know.

1987 k-5 blazer cranks and starts but won't stay running


Sounds like a large vacuum leak,low fuel pressure,fuel pressure regulator failure, idle air control valve stuck open,plugged fuel filter.Also check for good consistent blue spark at spark plugs or jumped timing chain.Hope this helps!

make sure you have the right firing order for the spark plug wires from the disbutor to the spark plugs. thats the most common for motor turns over and briefly fires and then dies. try looking up the firing order for the spark plug wires.
