If you have spark, try changing the fuel filter. If you don't have spark, get back to me.

Check your IAC motor (Idle Air Control) It could be sticking open.
Ps. Might be called Idle Speed Control motor it depends on the make and i forget what chevy calls theres.

Sounds like a fuel problem. If it runs when you spray carb cleaner your "fuel" may not have enough octane. I suspect you could have 50psi with a high water content (or the wrong fuel i.e. gas vs diesel?)...Drain the fuel and replace with fresh fuel (gasoline or diesel depending which engine you have), along with a bottle of fuel conditioner.

1997 chevy silverado starts one day next will not start


The next time it does not start have someone crank it over while you tap on the mass air flow sensor,if starts then remove the mass air flow sensor and clean the small wires inside of it using a non-chlronated brake cleaner let dry 10 minutes then re-install.

2002 BMW 325xi, doesn't start after oil change


It sounds like just a coincidence. I dont know what a GRR noise is supposed to mean. It either Cranks, No Crank, or it Cranks but does not Run. Just tow it to a qualified shop and find out what the problem is.

Iac and throttle body


Cleaning the throttle body is no big problem; simply remove the air filter box, and remove the tube from the air filter box that connects to the throttle body. Spray carb cleaner on the flap valve and all around the flap valve. Regarding you idle condition, cleaning the Idle Air Control valve (IAC) may do you no good. Once it fails, it is usually done. You prob need to install a replacement IAC. It is UNDER the throttle chamber, you will see it when you remove the air tube to the throttle body. I change several of these a month. Common failure.

Hey Guys! Had the same annoying problem. Cadillac dealer could find nothing wrong with it. Gave me a new battery. Took it to PepBoys and it died for them and immediately they found that it was the Crank Positon Sensor!! Part was $70 + labor. GOOD as NEW!!!!

96 ford ranger will crank but wont turn over


Try pressing a fuel reset button located under passenger side dash,far right side. I believe this is a rollover saftey switch that shuts the fuel off.
