2003 nissan maximal 3.5 v6 engine just shuts off sometimes will crank back sometimes want crank just turn over till u push gas to floor and hold it


You must have an engine light on (unless some shady person unhooked light). Take car to place like Autozone or other parts stores that read codes for free and have it checked. If code is found and no engine light then someone unhooked the light. On fuel injected cars you should always be able to start with no gas pedal. On old carburetor engines flooring them while cranking would start a flooded engine - but there is a problem if you are doing that with a fuel injected car. It sounds like a major sensor is dropping out, or fuel pump is going bad. If it is doing what you say - just going dead - and when checked it shows no codes at all - it is probably fuel pump getting weak.

1998 Ford Escort Se 2000cc SOHC will difficultly start the first time then has to set 30 - 40 minutes before it will start again


Holding the gas pedal to the floor will cause the PCM to put the fuel injection system into clear flood mode , cutting the amout of fuel going into the engine . Pumping or pushing on the gas pedal while cranking the engine over does nothing but allow more air into the engine , it's not giving it more gas . The computer has a set program it follows at start up . It's not like a carburetor ! Fuel pressure regulator .

1999 cavalier hard starting if hold gas pedal to floor it will eventually start.


Holding the pedal to floor should not do anything because the car is fuel injected...
You may check your fuel filter.. it sounds like its taking along time for fuel to start engine...
The fuel filter is located on the cross member just forward of the fuel tank....

Dirty airfilter, car will not start


If you took out the filter and it's dirty you can't see light thru it replace it. As far as not starting unless the air filter is now a solid block of dirt it should start, if the engine is fuel injected you must not touch the gas pedal while starting the engine or you will flood it.If it's flooded assuming you replaced the filter. Push the gas pedal to the floor hold it there while starting, after the engine starts remove your foot from the pedal to avoid engine overreving. This should fix the problem. Air filters should be changed every 12 months if you drive in dusty condtitions sooner the better

Fuel Injection Problem


Is your cat. convertor blocking up? If it is this condition, it could very well be the problem. Disconnect the convertor start the car & see if it takes the gas well. If it does, change the cat. convertor. Good luck!

Engine will turn over, but will not start


Suggestion, don;t try and start the car with the gas pedal pushed to the floor. Asking for trouble in the future.

Could be a fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.

Check engine light on? If so, Have the code read/scanned at your mechanic, or your local auto parts superstore.

Car won't start or idle


check fuel filter to see if it is clogged, sounds like it is starving for fuel. also check fuel pump pressure if need be.

My 1999 dodge intrepid is trying to start but wont fire up.I changed the chamshaft sensor & my fuel pump is working.i also changed relays & fuses.What could the problem be.


try the crankshaft sensor. it is on the transmission bell housing on the passenger side. You could also check for codes by turning the key to the on then off 3 times (DO NOT START THE ENGINE) and it will give you any stored codes in the mileage display

Engine will not start


If it is gas it may be flooded, so when you roll it over put the gas pedal to the floor as far as it will go if it is fuel injected. If you do this it will stop the gas flowing to the engine until you get it started.
