Sounds like fuel pump not working,have someone crank it for you,take off gas cap and listen . Can you hear pump while cranking? If not bang on bottom of fuel tank while cranking, if it starts you will need a fuel pump if not best check pressure and power to pump

SOURCE: 98 PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER WONT START - BLOWS ENG FUSE - HELP

You have a shorted engine harness, this is not common but it does happen, heat and engine movement cause damage to the harness, this is most common on hi miler cars and vans, the only way to fix it is to start by looking anywhere the harness rubs, that is where the damage occurs.

SOURCE: wont go into reverse and doesnt go into 3rd unless i let off gas

It sounds like you broke the sun gear shell in the transmission. This is real common on 4L60E. The transmission will have to be disassembled to fix it. If this is what is wrong it will have no reverse and hold 1st till about 30 and then skip 2nd, right to 3rd. Then never shift in to 4th.

SOURCE: tramission prom

Take it to a transmission shop that has a Tech 2 scanner. The tech 2 scanner will not only scan the transmission but can also recalibrate the shift points. Other reason to why it wont shift under WOT it low transmission fluid pressure so check the fluid level and have a pressure test done on the line.
The 4L60E is a great transmission but there are some things that don't work well with them like some shift kits. The ECM is program the shift points which get's messed up if done wrong. best upgrade on the 4L60E was to swap out the servos for corvette servos or after market performance one's all for under $100.00 and in most case better then a after market shift kit.
Good luck and hope this help. take care not to burn up the transmission.

this sounds like you have a problem with the electric fuel pump sticking, that would be where i would look, when u turn the key on with the windows up do u hear a humming noise for about 3 seconds? if not the fuel pump is the problem.

check the electrical part of your ignition switch . this is common to burn out and is easy and inexpensive to fix .does not require anything to be done to the mechanical part of the switch and key.

Oldsmobile wont start this morning, replaced battery and now threr is no sound. temp is below freezing. what could be my problem?


Is the starter motor good? Take it off and have it checked. It is always possible you got 2 lemon batteries (though not usually likely). Was the car running fine before? There are 2 rating for the battery: Volts and CCA (cold cranking amps) make sure you have the correct battery for the engine.

Hi i bought a vw beetle was running fine the last few days. I went to drive it yesterday and it wont start the immobiliser is showing its not flashing tho. My step dad replaced the car keys battery the day...


My immobiliser keeps flashing until I put the key in the ignition and then it stops. Normally changing key batteries has a period that if the battery is changed inside that time (say 5 minutes) then the key program will not loose memory Run fault codes to see if there is a problem in the electronics. Otherwise you may have to take the car to the dealer to have the key reprogrammed to the cpu in the car

99 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0L Car will start but won't stay running unless you keep giving it gas


I had the same problem. My car sat for a few days and when i went to start it i heard an extremely loud pop (kind of like a backfire). After that it would start and sound fine, but die 2 seconds later. Thank god my bf is a mechanic he knew instantly that the pcv valve hose that connects to the intake manifold unplugged itself. He plugged it back in and it runs fine now. I didnt however get a check engine light, but i only tried to start it twice before he fixed it because i was scared it jumped time.

Seat toledo v5 wont start just turns over


If there is a problem with the crankshaft sensor then when you attempt to start it the ecm cannot confirm when number one cylinder is on top-dead-center thus not activate the 'open loop' part of the engine controller. I think the reason that it was running fine then would not start was because the only time the crankshaft sensor is used is when starting, not after while in closed loop.
