Question about 1993 Dodge Shadow
My daughter was driving her car and it just died. IAfter raining nights, if the car sat for a while it had been hard to start. Sometimes we could get it to start after pumping the gas very hard and fast for ab out 10 minutes while turning the key. This did not always work. But as soon as the sun came up and it dried up outside, it would start.
Replaced distributor cap, spark plugs. It sounds like it wants to start but won't turn over. Could it be the fuel filter? We checked to see if it was getting fire and it does but not really great,
What you can do to diagnose this issue is - take an old spray bottle
(some kind of house cleaning solution), empty and clean it out really
nothing flammable is in it) and fill it with water. Then, pop the hood
to your car, start the engine, and squirt different parts of your
engine until you squirt an engine part that causes your car to shut
off... then you know that's the problem part!
I had the same issue with my husband's car. We determined that it was the distributor cap, which we purchased at Auto Zone and replaced on our own for like $30.
