Question about 2002 Pontiac Montana

1 Answer

As soon as you attempt to start it will run only a few seconds then will not start at all.

As soon as you begin to start the car it will run a few seconds then it will not start again. New fuel pump and sensor replaced 2 yrs ago. You can hear fuel pump when you turn on the ignition. Good strong battery.

My car stops suddenly and after few minutes it starts and works normally.At the beginning it was doing this around once a month,then every few days ,lately almost every day,now many times every day.

Sounds like fuel pump is ready to fail. First do the easy stuff. Change out fuel filter. If that improves then you are good to go. Secondly I would do a fuel pressure test this test will tell you if the fuel pump is weak and or about to fail. Good luck

90 Chevy 350 wont start..has good spark getting fuel to tbi if anything possibly too much fuel??..not sure tho..injectors appear to spray a good cone shape..I have changed out cap n rotor pick up coil...

you have stumbled on the problem when you reduced the fuel flow / pressure when it fired with the fuel line off
yes it has good cone shape at the injectors but excessive fuel so it is in effect flooding

My 1999 cadillaic deville ran out of gas now I can not get the car to start

Hello. I can assist you. Your car is fuel injected. So it is not like the older models where you can just pour a tablespoon of fuel into the spark plug hole. That said, Begin by unscrewing the gas cap and leaving it off until the car starts. you may need to coax the fuel through the line. turn the key on without trying to start it. Leave the key on for a few seconds, then turn it off and let it sit for a few seconds, then turn the key back on again. Electric fuel pumps used by EFI systems only stay on for a few seconds if the engine isn't running. You're trying to get the fuel back through the line, to the injectors.

My car wont stay running

Does the engine die as soon as you release the key, or does it run for a couple of seconds after you release the key and then die? If it dies as soon as you release the key, try holding the key for a few seconds and see if it will stay running as long as you are holding the key (the starter will make a grinding sound while holding the key but won't hurt anything). If it stays running while you hold the key then dies when you release it, that indicates that the ignition switch is bad.
