Are you getting continuous spark? bad electronic module? check spark first. should be continuous. do you have oil pressure...some vehicles won't run if oil pressure is not there.

Grey or white smoke indicates a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Pressurize the cooling system and remove the spark-plugs and check for signs of coolant inside the cylinders

2002 Sunfire with 2.2 ECOTEC Car acted like it ran out of gas. Would crank, run roughly a few seconds, then again acted like it ran out of gas. The next day and the next 3 days it has performed...


have the fuel pressure and volume tested with a gage.this sounds and acts like a fuel pump problem.check the fuel filter as well and replace anyways.when it won`t start but cranks can you hear the fuel pump running.listen at the fuel filler neck with the gas cap off.if you can`t listen under the car at the fuel tank you should hear it running/if not hit the gas tank and if the car starts then the pump needs replacing.you should check to make sure you are getting spark at the spark plugs to eliminate an ignition problem but i think its fuel.

Have a 97 VW Passat VR6, it died one day as the check engine light came on, it would run for a few minutes and then die, running shorter each time. Took it in to the shop and got the fuel pump replaced,...


You need to check fuel pressure at the fuel rail.if pressure is at spec. Check spark at the plugs. Also replace relay for fuel pump if it isn't working. Could be a bad new fuel pump. Pull the codes first.

Quit and won't start


Does it make any sound when you try to start it? Quite often helpful to know. I've helped start a number of vehicles by tapping on the solenoid--sometimes the teeth get off by a bit and a tap gets them back--usually a specific noise if that's the prob... The two main things that keep a car from starting--battery and fuel. Hopefully when you installed the battery, you cleaned the connections real well--sometimes they look fine, but can't get a connection. #2, check the fuel filter, simple thing to overlook, again it can seem like it's fine, but it's clogged, may or not affect the pressure.

Beyond this--try these, much more detail than I'd want to type here.
