Im not sure what you mean when you say wont start after being turn off for 30min, do you mean the starter wont turn the motor over after 30min or the engine turn over but it wont fire/run? if it start every time after its cool down. check the coil, the original coil tend to fail with heat over time. if its original coil for being 1990 I would go ahead and place it. distributor Assembly unit will also need replacing if its original and having high miles. a sign of the coil going bad when it get hot it quit working until its cool off. fuel pump can be another causing the problem. hope that help some

Throttle body makes a noise and wont start and runs battery flat disconect battery reconect then it starts


Choke is probably electronic and is sticking open... or has a flat spot.. you could try a bit of wd 40 on it.... it should be in the throttle body... another way is to soak the throttle body in carb cleaner over night to break up deposits... either way make sure to leave it air dry before trying to start.. both products are flammable

How to check for lose fuel pressure hyundai accent 2002


A mechanic would use a fuel pressure gauge, you could spray starting fluid or carb cleaner into the throttle body to see if it will start on that.
Also check for spark at the plugs.

Durango starts sometimes. then acts like its getting no gas and dies. if i stomp on gas it will keep running till i let off. bad gas ? fuel filter ? fuel pump?


I would suggest starting with the less expensive solutions first. If you pull the air intake hose off the throttle body and open the throttle with the engine off look down inside if it is black try spraying it out with throttle body cleaner make sure to spray it out good. Afterwards start it you may have to keep your foot on the gas for a few minutes to make sure it doesn't stall then take your foot off the gas pedal and see if it stays running if it does your throttle body just needed cleaned. Note do not use carb cleaner use throttle body cleaner only, carb cleaner can damage the sensor in your throttle body.

High pitch winding noise on cold start up.


Sounds like a constricted IAC Idle air control valve passsage. Fairly simple to fix. Remove air filter trunking all the way to the throttle body to allow access. The IAC allows air passed the throttle when closed at idle. Just on the inside of the throttle body in front of the throttle flap there is an opening in the throttle wall. This is the air inlet to the IAC; there is an outlet similar on the other side of the throttle. Use carb cleaner and cloth to shift the grime from this tubing and get it like new. Hold the throttle flap open to get at both ends of the IAC tubing. The IAC can be detached and cleaned to a shine. Reinstall the IAC and replace all air pipe ducting. Leave for about 20 minutes to allow any cleaner residue to dry out. When you restart you might experience a bit of uneven running but this will disappear very quickly as the last of the cleaner dries out

Starting in the morning cold is a problem. Jeep


The problem is with the engine management system that controls the idle speed for cold starts and pretty much everything else. In the old days the problem would be the auto choke but as this is a new model its the electonics I'm afraid. You can get this sorted out at a dealer. It should still be under warrenty.

My son says that he starts up the 1996 Dodge Ram pickup and it starts right away but if he doesn't keep his foot on the gas pedal for 30 seconds to 2 minutes or so, the truck dies. It will start up again,...


It could also be carbon build up on the throttle body, but regardless the cure is the same. Your going to need to clean the throttle body and the idle air control valve (IAC). With a can of throttle body cleaner, (follow instruction on the can) clean the throttle body blade and the IAC passage way in the throttle body and IAC. Once the throttle body is cleaned, with the engine off, turn the ignition key to the on position (engine not running) and wait for 30 seconds and then turn if off for 10 seconds and then start it. This should reset the IAC, if it did not work do it again and see if it helps. If not clean out the IAC passage way again. The turning on and off the ignition reset's the IAC and it may still be stuck with carbon build up. Once the engine has started, Note there will be lots of smoke form the tail pipe, that's normal. It's just the left over throttle body cleaner and carbon being burn off, take's not more then 10 min to burn off. Good luck and this should keep you from replacing the IAC. Oh and don't use Carb cleaner, Carb cleaner is to corrosive to the throttle body gasket.

This has been a regular problem on the 4.2 vortec motor. Usually the Throttle Body has to be cleaned. Even with as many as 30K miles. Easy process.. When you do this you must unhook the neg battery cable to reset the PCM. They make a throttle body cleaner (different than Carb/choke cleaner). You can get it at any parts outlet. Trailvoy.com has a article describing the whole process step by step. Takes about 30 minutes. Do a search in the article section under throttle body cleaning
