SOURCE: replaced starter,battery,truck runs good 4 4 days

I would have to guess that you put the wires on the starter improperly, and they are either touching the engine block or each other. When you change starters you have to pay special attention to which way the wires are pointing, and which ones go where, or you may have moved them when you put it in. In any event, they have shorted out, and may have caused the solenoid to short, too. If not any of the above, your ignition switch on the steering column must be stuck. Good luck, and let me know how it goes.

SOURCE: o2 lincoln ls check engine

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?

SOURCE: truck will start first thing in the morning run

you must make sure the fuel is getting to motor, check the fuel preasure after it dies check preasure or try spraying starting fluid in throtlebody to see if it a fuel problem, if it doesnt start then check for spark at the plugs,the most common problems are fuelpumps or control modules going bad,

SOURCE: car won't start mechanic reset inersha switch care

Did the inertia switch get triggered again? On the side panel, down behind the hood-release, there is an access hole in the panel. (1.5in diameter?) Inside you'll find the switch. It's a round button; that acts kind of like the ground default switch on an outlet. If you can push it in; it's been triggered again. If not; well it should be fine.
What triggered it the first time? If it was an accident; there may be further damage.
If that's good to go: I'd have to ask whether the fuel filter was changed at the same time. Sometimes they can clog with debris from burnt-out pump.
I had pump go out in my Mystique. It didn't trigger the inertia switch; but it did stop working two days later, as well. It turns out we messed up the plug connecting to the pump. That would be worth checking as well. You need to pull up the rear seat cushion. Where you'll find a rubber cap with a wiring harness protruding from it. Lift that up you'll find the plug underneath. Unplug it and perform a visual inspection. If it all looks good, well you'll need to begin more advanced diagnostics.
Then again, as cars go; it may not have been the pump to begin with, just a coincidence. Or something else has gone afoul. Dang cars!

Good luck,

Alex

You may have loaded a fuel line or connector up with contaminants. What else is happening during the second or 3rd day of running? Is it running low on fuel? Try to make a list of your gauge set! It only makes sense.

i just had the same problem in my bmw 325i. Probably vaccum leak or exhaust leak. Check that nothing came loose in these areas. It takes time for your car to learn the new CPS (cam pos. sensor) so give it a few days and reset the code again and see if it works.

95 GMC ignition system doesn't power


Sounds like an alternator problem. Pull it of the truck and take it to a parts store and have them test it for u. Its free at most parts stores. while your at it replace all power cabels and grounds the trucks old new cabels and connections cant hurt. Side post batteries have a bad habit of ratiling lose connections. hope this helps and good luck.

1999 chevy malibu, stalls, no restart after getting to running temperture. fuel ok, cranks but misfires when hot. cools down and starts. runs good cold. crank sensors ok


Sounds to be a bad ignition module or one of the coil packs. Will need a scan tool to know what cylinder (s) are misfiring in order to narrow it down.

2002 ford windstar misfire!!!


Hello

Check your ignition components, spark plugs, wires, if they are in good shape. Check with Ford technical service bulletins. There is a TSB for the upper intake plenum gaskets leaking when engine is cold. The TSB also has a reflash for the Engine Control Module.. I tried just doing the upper intake gaskets and so far so good. The reflash (reprogram your original computer) has to be done at the dealer. Hope this helps..

2000 pontiac grand am gt turns over won't start


without acually seeing the car its hard to say but it sounds like the fuel pump is weak gm cars and trucks are touchy about fuel pressure if your off from the spec by as little as 1 or 2 pounds it wont start. it may start off the starting fluid and run but not start on its own. also try taking off the fuel filter and blowing through it and see if its plugged up this is a common cause of fuel pump failure.
