2000 blazer won't start

As for it cutting off i would take the mass air flow sensor off and clean it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner then let dry for 15 minutes and re-install.As for engine not cranking overmost likely its the starter solenoid that is bad.

1987 Chevy Silverado Fuel/Oxygen Problem

it seems you have already replaced sensors related to air/fuel mixture.
You need to check for vacuum leaks. If there is a leak after your maf sensor, ( a crack on intake manifold or related things like rubber hoses etc)
engine sucks more air than calculated by ECU(so o2 sensor reads lots of oxygen and gives error TPS thinks it is open wider than it should). this is actually extremely lean mixture situation. when you step on gas engine sucks more air than it requires actually and stalls.

to prevent this you need to find the source of vacuum leak. spray some brake pad cleaner to intake manifold (not to filter housing) try to hear the sound difference in engine. if it happens it means it is sucking cleaner inside engine.

give it a try.

Our mitsubishi diamante won't start what could be the problems ? we have tried to start it several of times we have charged the battery we have put gas in and cleaned the engine still no start the...

Hello and welcome to Fixya!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive batter connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

Please do keep me posted on the progress. I'll be glad to help you out. Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

My 2005 nissan pathfinder acts like its out of gas. Put gas, started ran like normal for about two days. Then just stalls out with no warning. Will start back up like twice before it finally just...

My 2005 pathfinder was having the same problem. Took it to the dealer and they told me that there was a re-call on a relay that goes to the ECU. They suggested a engine diagnostics. If it turned out to be the relay, the part/labor and diagnostics would be free. My pathfinder is running great now. Hope this helps.

1998 Windstar 3.0 starting problem. About a month ago the engine would spit and turn but just wouldn't kickin. A mechanic gave me this much info as I cranked the car 1)Fuel was coming2) there was a spark...

not likely the coil,is engine check light on?has come on at all? if not light at all suggest you wait till check engine light comes on,then take to an autozone,or advance auto parts. they will code read it for free! just the check engine light HAS to be on to get a correct reading. only other suggestion is replace the idle control sensor.$20.00 for part 2 screws to remove and anyone that works at a parts store can tell you where it's located!i've always trusted advance auto parts,but i cannot recommend any one parts store to you as it would be considered as advertisement,so i suggest you do research on parts stores and use the one that you will be comfortable with. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

Hi sometime while I am driving my 1998 Lin. Navigator it starts to hesistation like small shakes. I take my foot off the allerator it smooths out. It don't do it all the time. Kenny

If it was mine I would replace plugs. Think it has coil over plugs it should turn check engine light on if its missing. Then I would install a new air filter and clean the mass air sensor. They make specail spray for this don't use carb cleaner it will mess it up make sure mass air sensor(small-wire) is dry dry dry before turning on the key.Its prob one of these two things or you got bad gas or a restricted fuel filter. hope it helps. If it's super charged use 91octane or higher.

Old gas turned "peanut buttery" in fuel line.

blow it backwards with a air line ,disconnect the pipe at the tank end and blow back from the engine end ,acetone will disolve anything ,but blow fuel line with air the pour some acetone down it ,leave it for a couple of hours then blow airline again

Getting better gas milage....

Hey there, well if its anything like mine(91 cressy) its pretty thirsty! but things worth checking(if u havnt already) are the engine timing, fuel filter, air filter, as they will make a huge differnce. still im getting 11L per 100 around town, and i dont exactly flog it. and about the octane, i realy wouldnt worry too much if its just the non turbo version, although sticking to 91octane or above is always a good idea. usually only costs a few extra dollars a tank for 98 octane here in Australia, so i think its worth it.
