Question about 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport

1 Answer

My son's 1992 trans sport will not start.

Never had a problem starting it until he let the gas pretty much run out and now it turns over like crazy, but will not fire. I put in 7 gallons of gas, pulled the fuel line after the fuel filter, spun it over and it looked like the pump was shooting out gas with good pressure. I checked for spark and that looked good as well. I also replaced the coil pack since we had another one laying around, still no go.
I can hear the fuel pump engage when I turn the key to the run position and tried to get the pump to prime by cycling it a few times. Now since it looked like I had gas flowing to the engine and the pump sounds to be working, is it really pushing enough pressure to get things going. There is a pump pressure coupling on one of the frame rails ( at least the book says that there is ) but I don't own the correct tool to see if that would be it.
The battery is fully charged so the injectors should be getting everything that they need to work. Any ideas?

Sounds odd . One has nothing to do with the other . First off try checking battery connections . Make sure you have clean and tight connections and that nothing was left disconnected or lose . Next I would check all your fuses Under hood and under dash .

replace the fuel filter then check the air/fuel mix needle valve according to manufacturer specs. Sounds like you have way to rich a fuel mixture.

Engine problem starts and turn off


Someone would need to check base fuel pressure with a gauge before and after cranking the engine.
Could be the fuel pump, filter, or the pump relay.

Will the car move at all. If you put it in gear and let your foot off brake , does it move untill you touch gas , or does it jam up as soon as wheels start to turn. I am suspecting problem with diff.
Doubtfull about trans filter.

This is an idea not a for sure. Bad or worn valves can cause what you describe. Had something similar happen to an 2004 Toyota. Due to bad lubrication, crazy huh?

Could be a bad tranny mount. Look at all the mounts for broken rubber or rusted hangers. I have seen this in other fords as well. Also it would be a good idea to change your transfer case oil.
