Is the check engine light on? If it is get the codes read. It also could be a bad vacume line off the fuel injector.

I started my car this morning and it ran fine for about 4 min. then died. try to start it again, and it wont fire off.


start simple check gas and fluid levels look for loose connections in wiring are you using remote starter? check for fuel pump noise have someone turn on the key while you remove gas cap listen for humming sound when ignition switch is in run note fuel pump will only stay on for 2-3 sec unless starting car

Car wont turn over


Sounds like you have a bad starter. To check this you can try taking a hammer to the starter and tap it while someone in the car turns the key. If it starts you know you have a bad starter and need to replace it. Hope this helps you out

97 sebring lxi, 2.5L - car died leaving driveway. wont start. been running fine, no noises, hiccups and nothing when it died. battery good, changed plugs, fuel pump buzzes when key is turned, engine cranks...


first thing you got to do is determen weather its electrical or fuel problem, you can take a test light and hook to a ground and the light end to a spark plug and see if it lights while someone turns over engine, if it lights you got spark. if its got spark, on to fuel, take fuel pressure test, don't think because you can hear pump working does not mean it is, it can sound like it is but its not, at least putting out enought pressure, not the correct amount it will not run. pumps will go out just that way with no warning at all.

if you can get the car started again and with someone helping you have them take the positive side of the battery cable off while it is running and if it dies then it is the alternator also check your drive belt and when was the last time it was changed because it could be slipping

My car wont stay running


Does the engine die as soon as you release the key, or does it run for a couple of seconds after you release the key and then die? If it dies as soon as you release the key, try holding the key for a few seconds and see if it will stay running as long as you are holding the key (the starter will make a grinding sound while holding the key but won't hurt anything). If it stays running while you hold the key then dies when you release it, that indicates that the ignition switch is bad.
