Simply add a can of SEAFOAM(parts store) to a 1/2 tank of Premium gas, and let it idle for 5 minutes. You've got water and corn by product in your lines from the ethanol gas. Common problem now EGS(ethanol gas syndrome). Give it a chance to work.

95 Park Avenue Ultra dies for no reason I can find, I've replaced the crank sensor, cam ssensor, spark module, fuel filter, I've had the injectors tested, fuel pump tested, plugs & wires t


As you have probably figured out by now, you will have to treat it as a no start and troubleshoot it when it fails to start. Until you figure out if you are loosing spark or fuel to the injectors when the engine dies you have no direction to go in.

Hesitation problems can be caused by a number of thing's on vehicle's with electronic fuel injection , not like the old days of carburetors where most likely it had a bad accelerator pump . Throttle position sensors (TPS) can get a worn spot that would act just like a bad accelerator pump . MAF sensors (mass air flow ) Can also cause Hesitation plus ruff running , bad fuel economy , a IAT sensor ,(intake air temp ) ECT - engine coolant temp. sensor can also cause this problem . Unless you want to replace all these parts i suggest you have it diagnosed by a qualified repair shop that has the electronic diagnostic tool to test it .
ABS light on , DTC- diagnostic trouble code could be set in the EBCM - electronic brake control module . could be a wheel speed sensor getting ready to fail .

My 2002 4 cylinder highlander intermittent has starting problems. It will seem like it starts then will die.I have to hit the gas pedal couple times then it starts. Could it be time to change spark plugs?...


It could be all the above plus it could also be a bad fuel pump.My best suggestion would be have your plugs changed and take a look at them if there is a high carbon build up then check your air filter,ignition components and your engine control systems.If they have a gray or tan colored build up then there burning ok. I would try a tune up first to see what kind of response you get before going at the engine components.Also it wouldn't hurt to have the fuel pressure tested to make sure its at the proper pressure to eliminate the fuel pump.

Hesitation on take off and a miss while goin down the road in my 1994 2.3l ford ranger


Start with a complete tune-up

Plug wires can cause this.

Do spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, rotor cap, spark plug wires, fuel filter, air filter, oil & oil filter.

People often neglect these simple things which could save your motor, maintain it's efficiency plus improve gas mileage.

Malfunction indicator lamp is on. Gas cap was tight not sure what problem is 2004 civic 94,000 kms.


There are 3 major problems why car can't crank.

1. Bad fuel mix.. or no fuel.
2. Bad Air & Gas compression. (air and gas intake to the cylinders are not proportionate)
3. Poor spark plugs or poor electric wiring to engine (nothing to ignite the compressed mix)

There are thousands of other reasons why a car don't start, but the above mentioned are the most common and critical.

hope it helps.
