Sometimes no response when key turned on to start, let set and then may start as normal?


If when you try to start the engine all the gauges and lights go dim on the dash, you have a bad,dirty or corroded battery cable. If your gauges and lights do not dim then its probably a bad starter solonoid. They will work off and on when they start to go bad.

I get credit when you rate my answer..............Thanks

My 1995 Buick Riviera supercharged won't start. When I turn the key in the ignition nothing happens...no sound, no turnover. Nothing. The lights inside the dashboard light up so I know it cant be the...


Check all battery connections for corossion, battery to motor and battery to body ground for corossion under mounting bolts. Also check motor to body ground strap. Also check battery wire and all otherwires on starter solonoid. Check condition of battery, even if the dashboard lights up your battery can not have enough juice to turn car over to start.

My Saturn has been sitting in my driveway for about a year and a half. We just replaced the battery and the fuel filter and when I try to start the car, the engine turns over, starts for a minute, and then...


If the gas in tank is that old you need to drain it. Once you have good new,clean fuel in tank. Turn key to run position,(do not energize starter just want red lights on dash to come on) listen for fuelpump whine. It will shut off. Turn key off.Turn key to run again, listen for fuelpump again. Turn off key again. Repeat this procedure total 5 times. On last time turn key to engage starter. It should build up enough pressure & fuel & start right up.

The car only have 43,000 ml on it but it have


first drain the engine oil and oil filter.next replace the battery and clean the battery cables.then you will need to siphon out the old gas or if below quarter of tank added 5 gal. of gas to gas tank then disconnect dist.ign. lead on side of dist.and crank engine over with out starting.for about 10 sec. do this 4-5 times then crank over for 30 sec.this will help get oil to the bearings.next hook up the dist. and check all wires for rodent chewing and repair if found.then check antifreeze in radiator may need to change along with thermostat,and possible all hoses they may be dry rotted. the front seal on the water pump may start leaking after running so you may want to replace. try and start engine.do not drive. wish you the best let me know how it goes.

No power to fuel pump


What you need to do is drop the fuel tank and put a new fuel pump in it. I would drain the gas and put new gas in after you get the pump changed.

hello matilda,

im not sure if the reason is the leaded gasoline that you put, but if you want to replace the gasoline in the tank, you can trace if there is a drain bolt under the tank then drain the gas in the tank. be safety consious since your handling flamamble liquids. then if you can trace your fuel line that goes to the engine, you can flush that too with air. then when your sure that the tank is empty and the lines are clean, you can fill it up with your correct unleaded gas and have a good battery ready and crank your engine until the new gas is in the engine already and i hope it would start now.

i hope i was able to help you.

pls rate me..

tnx
