The car continually will not start. Sometimes if

The car continually will not start. Sometimes if you wait a few minutes, it starts. Other times we have to have it towed. The battery has been replaced. This has been going on for a period of 3-4 years. It has been put on the analayzer and it shows nothing.

    When is doesn't start has anyone checked to see if there is spark at the plugs? You can purchase a very inexpensive tester at a parts store that you can check for spark. Very easy to use. Need to know this before any further assistance.

I have a 2003 acura cl s type 3.2, while driving it, the car would just shutoff, i try to start it again and it want start,then i wait a few minutes and it would start, what is the problem?


Do you get a "check engine" light? If so, have the code read. Sometimes you won't get the error the first time.
I had a similar problem with a different car, was the cam position sensor. After the 4th or 5th time, I did get a code and that told me exactly what to replace.

Car cuts out sometimes when you are driving. Car sometimes struggles to start. It does start eventually and can drive perfect for a few days, then it suddenly cuts out when you are driving and it appears...


I had that problem. I unscrewed the idle control valve (near the air intake), applied contact cleaner spray and all dirt came out. After it was dry, I put it back on its place. No problem ever since.

My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Will die going down the road. Sometimes it starts back up without me touching the key.other times I have to wait a few minutes before it will crank again.Any suggestions? Thank...


I've got to be reading this incorrectly...You are driving, the engine turns off...you pull off the road? And then without touching the key the engine re-starts, but you haven't touched the key? Or, sometimes you need to sit there for a few minutes and then turn the key to start it?

1996 Oldsmobile Achieva: Security light flashes upon startup


Here is what you do, but only when the SECURITY light flashes - if it is always ON or OFF it's no use.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes ( SECURITY light will flash for 10 minutes and then stay on SOLID)
Turn the key to OFF
Wait 5 seconds.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes.
Turn the key to OFF
Wait 5 seconds.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes.
Turn the ignition OFF.

Start the car normally.
It has relearnt the keycode and you're good to go.
NOTICE - it takes 30 minutes to relearn, that's THREE cycles of ON - 10 minutes - OFF.

Good luck.
