Unhook your battery again for about 15 minutes. After you re hook it up, let car sit with the key in the on position, but not running. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, and then turn key off, and start it. It may run rough for a few minutes as the sensors and systems are all resetting. If you try running it right away, or cold, it can confuse the regen process

My 2004 cavalier will not turn over without excessive pumping of the gas pedal. Battery, starter and everything else seems to be fine. Is it the pump or something else?


Try this next time you start it. Turn the key to the run position, do not start the engine. Wait 3-5 seconds and turn the key off. Turn the key right back to the on position and wait for 3-5 seconds. Turn the key off. Repeat the above one more time. Now try to start. If it starts right up you have a fuel supply problem. Either the fuel pump is bleeding off or the fuel pressure regulator is leaking. Pumping the pedal is doing nothing besides buying time for the fuel system to pressurize. Post an engine size and I'll help you locate the fuel pressure regulator. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

it could be a bad fuel pressure regulator. or a blocked fuel filter. heres the regulator symtoms. the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start ( usually in the morning )many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fowled spark plugs, replacement is only cure. ( black soot on plugs, blake smoke from tail pipe, running rough and stalling. check fuel filter first.

I suggest testing the fueling system, it sounds like you are losing pressure during shutdown. the start procedure that you describe would allow the fuel system to repressurize.

Hook up pressure gauges and test the system against specs., but then compare pressure during shutdown.

Pretty early for a fuel pump issue..I presume that you have changed the fuel filter...

Check the fuel pressure regulator. You didn't say what engine you have. If you have the V-6 it is located on the front of the engine on the drivers side near where the throttle cable hooks up to the throttle body. It will have a rubber vacuum hose coming out of the top of it. pull of the hose. start the car. if you see fuel coming out than the regulator is bad.

The other possibility is the fuel pump check valve is bad and fuel pressure is dropping off and the fuel is boiling in the fuel rail. It will take longer to start because it needs to push the vapor out of the rail. Once it cools down the vapor condenses back to fuel and it starts right up.

Two things to try
1. when it doesn't start cylce the key four or five times. Which means turn the key to the on position (do not start the vehicle) wait 3-5 seconds and then turn the key off and repeat. The final time go ahead and start the vehicle. You should hear the fuel pump run every time you turn the key on. If the vehicle starts right up you definitely have a fuel issue.

2. When it doesn't start hold the gas pedal to the floor. Then start the vehicle being ready to let off the gas pedal if it starts. If it starts up and then runs a little rough and then clears up it is likely a fuel pressure regulator leaking.
