Question about 2007 Chevrolet Uplander LS Minivan

1 Answer

06 Uplander starts then immediately dies

I've had the vehicle about 2 weeks and about 4 or 5 times when I go to start it, it starts and immediately dies but usually starts up the second time. When it does start, it is real quite and sound weak. What could it be? There are no trouble lights on or anything but I only have a few more days on my warranty.

    No the light is not on. When it starts, it's real quite. It runs real smooth but it almost sounds weak. Thank you for responding.

    is the security light lit on your dash? If not it sounds like a fuel pump prob, Need a fuel pressure test to confirm.

I have a LS400 Lexus thats will start then immediately dies, I've checked fuel pressure and have 40psi, it is not pulling any codes, has new battery, any suggestions?


Hello,

Does the vehicle rev up to about 2k RPM and then die? Does it do this every time, meaning can you start the vehicle every time but then dies?
Was there any other things happening before or several different things? Example - black smoke out tail pipe, would not hold a steady speed and jerked or hesitated? If you answered yes to these questions it is a good chance the vehicle computer needs replacing. (I had the same issue, different vehicle).

If not, do you have any more information?

I hope this helps!!!

2005 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder intermittently won't start


try starting the car and while running disconnect the negative battery cable,if the car still runs turn on the head lights,if the car dies the alternator is weak. I think its weak and can charge the battery as long as the lights are off,but cant keep up when theyare on. so if drive most of the time in the day time you are ok as long as you dont have to start the car too many times. when you drive with the lights on and the engine slows to an idle like when you park the car dies. make sense?

I have to hit the gas to start my 2006 chevy uplander but once it starts it is fine, could this be a fuel pup problem if i dont hit the gas it will just turn over or it will start and die


I am a gm dealership tech, and also own one of these. My vehicle has the exact same problem. Cleaning, or having the throttle body cleaned well seems to help alot. I just rest my foot on the gas pedal alittle when I start it most times just kinda became habit. Unfortunately we have not found a real permanent fix as of yet.

You can reset the computer by turning the key to the on position. Don't start the engine. Press the gas pedal to the floor and release it all the way. Press all the way to the floor and release. Press all the way to the floor and release. After the third time it will reset the computer.
PLEASE RATE! Check the 4 thumbs up.
Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!

1991 Camaro RS v-6 will start but dies almost immediately


Keep it simple and replace the fuel filter first, if thr fiiler has not been replaced within 30,000 miles or 1 year. Then it's a good chance that it's going to be the fuel filter.

Van will not start. Can hear fuel pump but nothing else.


First thing check the fuses! Turn the key to the on 'run' position and check both sides of every fuse with a test light, or pull them out one by one, but test light is easier! If all is fine check for power on the starter main terminal (power will be constant when in any key position), then check for power on other terminal when in start position! If both powers are present then you will need a new starter!
