SOURCE: Car choke after period of

Change your Coolant Temperature Sensor. This will fix it! I've seen a few of these. It is failing intermittently and telling the engine it's at -127 degrees Centigrade. The engine management responds by enriching the mixture dramatically to the extent that a hot engine will not start or idle. You can probably smell the fuel at the tailpipe when you can't start it.

Regards.

SOURCE: 1997 jeep grand cherokee cranks long time before starting

generally your problem can be traced to a faulty anti-drainback valve in the fuel pump. After sitting for an extended time fuel must be re-filled and pressurized before engine will start. Second primary cause is a leaking fuel injector which does the exact same thing from the other end of the system but, this is also accompanied by a puff of smoke after starting.
Other causes can be low comrression from engine wear, or, a weak ignition coil but these are far less common.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Buick

I had the same problem with my 2000 le sabre custom. It would die in the middle of the interstate. I could throw it into neutral and it would restart and keep on going or I'd have to let it sit for about 5 minutes and it would usually start. There is no code, Dealer said to bring it in when it's happening. Yeah, right..if it's drivable..it's not happening. Replaced the fuel pump twice, the camshaft and crankshaft sensors, but still happened randomly. I had to stop driving the car because it was unsafe.

SOURCE: My 2002 liberty is overheating. If if run the air

Have you tried to use the lowest thermostat - okay if you live in a place that you don't get real cold?

With all the problems you have had, I would take the vehicle to the best diagnostic computer in your area and see what it tells me.

I have a 1995 Grand Cherokee and still have original radio, relay, harness and compressor. I just clush the radiator and change antifreeze every two years, and change thermostats during flush.

Blower motor will not stay running it periodically slows down by itself or stops working all together


Sounds like the resister pack malfuntiong or the blower motor going bad. Pack is a cheaper fix and they age badly anyway. The pack is near the motor.

1993 chevy 1500 p/u. Alternator only placing 12.5 - 12.9 voltage to battery. At rear power terminal on alternator the voltage is 14.5. What would be the problem?


If the voltage output is 14.5 at the alternator, and by the time it reaches the battery it is only 12.5 to 12.9 volts, then there could be a bad connection in between the battery and the alternator.

Actually, on my Cadillac it says that it doesn't red flag the charging system until the voltage drops to 11.5 volts or lower for an extended period of time.

Maybe, the battery is loading down the alternator's charge and has a bad cell or something. I'm not sure without testing it on a starting charging machine.

Over an extended period of time gas will evaporate in a carburator. It's possible that presure is leaking off in your fuel pump as well. A weak pump will have trouble maintaining pressure over a period of time and will have trouble building pressure back up. Starting the engine on a regular basis and letting it run for a few minutes will cure the problem and help keep the engine seals from drying out and leaking. Converting to an electric fuel pump will also make it easier to start after sitting for a period of time.
Any generic LOW PRESSURE electric pump will work. It only needs to put out between 7 and 9 or 10 pounds pressure. Unhook the fuel lines from your mechanical pump and hook to the electric. The li ne from the tank goes on the inlet end. The electric pump usually ground through the case so it needs contact with bare metal or a wire running from the case to bare metal. Run the power wire to a powered wire in the engine compartment that powers on and off with the key or to an accessory fuse in the fuse box. It should run through a 20A fuse.
Hope this helps.

Miss sometime after sitting


It it sits for an extended period of time this could be due to bad gas (gas can go bad in as little as two weeks when left sitting); or it could be you have bad vale seals or other seals leaking slightly. This can only be determined by doing a good check out of the engine and systems.

If it only does it for a min or two after sitting then starting, I wouldn't worry too much. Alot depends on the age of the motor and how many miles you have.

2002 s2000 will crank but not fire


your battery may be dead dead. The electric clicking is a telltale sign that the battery is weak or depleted and does not have enough juice to turn over the starter. This is extremely common when the car is left to sit for an extended period without being used.

the clicking you hear is the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter, but the battery is to weak to do so.

There are a couple solutions. First you can get a set of jumper cables and jump the s2000 with anther battery. Once the car is running the battery will alutomatically begin to recharge.

the second is to buy and use whats called a trickle charger or 'battery tenderizer' this is a small device that you plug into the car and it will automatically keep the battery charged over extended periods of time without the risk of over charging the battery. If you use one of these it will also slowly charge yoru current battery enough overnight for it to work in the morning

02 4Runner 3.0 showing service code 300. Replaced


Replace all your plugs, po300 code is random misfire which could absolutely be caused by bad gas causing detonation. Try an octane booster and gas stabilizer when parked for long periods.
