Question about 2004 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

My car will start some times and other times it will not.

In order to get it started I have to push the gas down half way and turn the key to start 2x. Then we have to push the gas all the way down and turn the key to start. That's supposed to clear any gas in the engine. These steps are all listed in the owner book. Does anyone have any solution?

If it has a timeing sensor on a device that looks like a distributer in older cars it should be changed also. It and the crank sensor share info in order to work properly.

I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

99 altima turns over no start


Spray some ether in the throttle body and see if it starts. If the car still doesn't start, it could be an ignition problem. Check for spark.

try priming the engine a couple of extra times by switching the key to on (not start) a couple of times before you switch it all the way to start. That will just get a little extra flow going from the fuel pump. this should solve your problem. But the cold is the cold, it may be something to grow into, and is not a big problem.

My explorer ran out of gas, i filled it up to about a half a tank, now it just turns over but wont start


if it's fuel injected,look on the fuel rail for a schrader valve--looks just like a valve stem on a tire but shorter.remove cap,again just like on a tire.turn key to on-push valve stem in as if to let air out if you get air,then gasoline,you have just bled the system.replace cap,start car.if you get no gas,remove gas tank cap,turn on key,listen for ""hum'' of fuel tank.no hum,check fuel pump.modern[plastic] fuel pumps will self destruct if run dry,even for a short time.

Fuel pump? maybe


Just turn key as far as run, and you should hear it. If no luck, spray WD-40 in throttle body intake, and try starting.If it fires up, it's a fuel problem, if not, check for spark.

Oil light


Hi lady d tilli,

Take off the fuse cover on the drivers side of the dash. there should be a bunch of fuses. in the middle is a red button that says "reset." turn your key to the on position, but DO NOT START. press the reset button until the change oil light blinks, then turn the key back off it should be fine after that. for the 05's theres somthing you have to do with the gas pedal. i think you do the same, by turning the key on but not starting...and then tapping the gas pedal 3 times.

Hope this helps a bit,
Good luck,
Eitan.
