1995 Town Car cranks but won't start, intermittent problem

Sometimes if you let it sit for 10-15 minutes it will start. Changed fuel filter, seemed to be better but after 1 week started doing it again. The last time it happened it sat for 2 1/2 hours, would not start.
I tapped on the fuel pump relay with a screwdriver handle, still no start. I tapped on the EEC relay and it started immediately.

First, try swapping the eec relay with a known good unit and see if the problem persists.
Second, you could be experiencing a problem with your ignition module overheating, causing high resistance in the circuit. When the vehicle sits for a while, the circuit cools and will allow the current to flow again.

Check your idle air control valve first, then go to your PCM.

My 1977 Pontiac grand prix won't start after driving it across town. After it sits for a while then it will start. Was told this is a fuel filter problem?

Yes it could be a fuel filter problem but it could be some other things also. Do you notice a pattern with this? Do you drive the same amount of miles and it shuts off each time? Does the temperature outside have any pattern? Is the first time it happened? You could have a fuel pump going bad. Or your alternator could be intermittently operating which means sometimes your battery gets charged and sometimes it runs down.

My car sometimes shuts of while in motion or sometimes after the car has been parked not running for an hour or so it won't start. If I let it sit for another 1/2 hour to 45 minutes it will start right...

Sounds like the "crank position sensor" This would explain the intermittent problem...a visual inspection does not always confirm this. A good mechanic can confirm however. Hope this helps.

1995 ford contour cranks but won't start, change fuel filter, fuel pump, and spark plugs. Not getting any spark.

Have you ever heard of testing before replacing parts ? Fuel pressure an flow tesing , testing the electrical circuit for the fuel pump , amp draw testing , voltage drop testing etc... Thier are no magical fixes in auto repair . No spark ! check B+ voltage an ground circuits for the ignition system , Ignition System Designs Operation and Testing an SD Premium video

My 95 lincoln town car will be fine and then all of a sudden I can't get it to crank. I have changed the fuel pump, the fuel filter, I have sparks because I got shocked. was taught a trick of pushing...

check all your rounds on the body, behind kick panels, and in engine compartment. The relays you hear clicking are the power relay whcih turns your engine computer on. The other relay is the fuel pump relay, which is turned on by the engine computer. start there, report back.

PS. When you press the gas pedal to the floor during cranking, it shuts off the fuel supply to clear a flooded engine.

1995 Buick Lasbre 3.8L. Cranks over and wont start. Sometimes will start. Very random. Can drive 1 mile, shop, come out, car won't start just cranks over. Had replaced plugs, wires. Dealership...

If you have not changed the crank sensor,CHANGE IT NOW..Also in warm climates NEVER use fuel with ethanol in it.If it was a anti theft alarm problem,you usually get a light on the dash.
