Factory system????you cant....if you could, then anybody could steal you car. you will need a qualified shop or the dealer to diagnose and recommend repairs.

I put fuel pump ,crank sensor, fuel filter, tune up and I still do the same start and shut off

Does it have a SECURITY system in it ?
Is the SECURITY Light on or Flashing Sparatickly ?
Any Trouble codes ?
POSSIBLE - * MAF sensor (Mass Air Flow Sensor) has gone BAD causing car to start then shut back off . * Security has kicked in ( Due to changing stereo system or battery went dead or didn't have one on it for a little while .
FIXES - *Replace Mass Air Flow Sensor (in between the throttle and the air filter box) . * Take to Dealer and have computer Flashed/Reset if SECURITY is at Fault . I recommend the MAF sensor
Hope this Helps , Flaming Ratchets Auto Repair

My 96 sunfire will not start

Sure it is not getting any fuel? Then that is the problem. Check out fuel delivery system and components such as fuel pump, filter, injectors being fired, etc.

If the Vat system was activated the car would start but then almost right away after wards shut the engine down. But if you have had the battery disconnected you might just want to check out resetting it for "in case."

Does the security shut down the fuel pump

Absolutely it does. You can put a volt meter on the fuel pump fuse to confirm the pump is or is not getting power.
Turn the key ON and wait a few seconds for the security light to go out.It will not start til you get the light to go out.
Did you disconnect the battery when you replaced the gasket? If so the security system may be confused.
Let me know and I will walk you through the fix.

Engine starts, but shuts off like the fuel pump is out, good fuel pressure. security light on dash on. ideas?

yes some times a security system will allow car to start and get as far as 5-10 feet and shut down as if out of fuel but the security system acts like it is being stolen. if it is a factory install then call dealer and see if you can overide it with a sequence of procedures.

I bypassed the security system the car still want start I placed a hot wire directly on starter and the car turned over but there was no fuel going up what is the problem now

Try hooking the security system up again so that it's functional, then take out the fuse that's located on the fuse box in the trunk that's associated with the security system. It should be labeled "theft" and it's a 10amp fuse. The system will still function as normal only the horn will not sound if the security system is tripped and it will not shut down the fuel pump.

I have an 03 saturn vue, 2wd with auto trans. When driving, usually at less than 2 miles the engine shuts down at about 500 rpm like when stopping for a red light. Have to disconnect battery to reset...

sounds like a throttle sensor fault do to the fact that the saturn vue doesnt idle at 500 normally its uaually between 600-800. i suggest getting it hooked to a diagnostic machine to find wat the codes are cause im sure it will be several.

My 2001 chevy malibu ls v6cranks,starts up but right after,right after dies like somethings shutting it down. radio was locked from me disconnecting my battery without disconnecting the anti theft system....

Is the Security light flashing??? If so, the security system (passlock II) is ******** off the fuel because the car thinks it is being stolen. If the security light is flashing, leave the key in the "on" position for about 10 minutes and it will stop flashing. Then turn the car off and try to start like you normally would.
