Will not crank or will not start? it may be running rish..that ;s way the gas smell, the cylinders may be washed down with gas , and do to that lost compression, you will need to pull the plugs , put some oil , just a bit and let it seat for a minute , then put the plugs back and try starting , I assuming that it does crank.go to a mechanic and check the reason of the check engine, maybe a pluged air filtor or a air flow meter, many things could be..

2000 1500 Sierra will not stay running step on gas act like its running out of gas. Popped top fuel line gas came poured outbut didn't pump out when i rolled the engine over. Got underneath the fuel cell...


Replace the fuel pump and fuel filter to correct the problem you are having. Without the proper fuel pressure the engine will not run at all. Hope this will help you. You might check the fuse/relay panel for a blown fuse or relay in it to make sure you are getting power to fuel pump before you go to the trouble of removing the pump and fuel filter. Hope this will help you.

Engine light stays on, then engine light flashes while running crappy. If I touch the gas pedal just right engine runs fine and light stops flashing(but stays on). 1996 cavalier 2.4L OHV.


Most local parts stores like Autozone or Advance auto will check the trouble codes for free and help you get the parts you need to fix whatever is causing the engine light to come on.

I can drive for 30 min. With no prob. After that


Sounds like fuel vapor lock. When fuel is heated, it will change from liquid to gas.... gas bubbles don't feed very well through injectors or throttle bodies.
Inspect your metal fuel lines under the hood, most likely. See if a metal hose is touching the engine, especially the near or on the exhaust manifold. You might want to insulate the fuel lines (Lowe's or Home Depot $4) with pipe insulation.

Check engine light


RE: Check Engine Light

The check engine light may come on for several reasons
.
It is not necessary to worry as it may be as simple as putting the gas cap on without fully clicking it shut!. If this is the case it will go away by itself in about a week at most!

You can take your car to an auto parts store to have them run a diagnostic (Some will do this for free).

If your car is running fine, re-tighten the gas cap, give it a week or have it diagnosed if you still feel uncomfortable with it.
