It is very possible and i can tell you a way to help you see if that is the issue. after your car has sit a while (as long as it usually takes before it acts up) jump in the vehicle and turn the key to the postion just before the vehicle begins to turn over when all the dash lights come on. when the key is put in this position the fuel pump runs for a few seconds and then stops until vehicle is cranked, allow the pump to run for 5 seconds then turn the key back off. then return the key to the "run" postion i mentioned before and wait a few seconds then try to start it. if it fires right up you have allowed the vehicle to build fuel pressure before you started it, indicating you have a fuel pressure issue and you are most likely looking at a weak fuel pump.

1997 5.7L c2500 suburban. I have replaced ignition,coil,distributor,fuel pump,fuel filter,plugs,plugwires,crank sensor,egr,spider injection. After it sits for awhile, hard to start Need advice please


Sorry dude but did you test anything before replacing parts ? There is a step by step diagnostic path to trouble shoot a problem like these. Does it have spark, does it have fuel pressure an is there compression in the cylinders ? After all that you should take it to a ASE certified repair technician !

Where is spark plug located on lincoln ls 3.0eng 2002



The spark plugs in the v6 can become an involved job as the upper intake manifold. The LS uses a Coil on Plug (COP) ignition system, meaning that the spark plugs are located under the ignition coil

2000 Yukon denali having trouble starting. Sounds flooded. After it sits awhile it will start. Replaced fuel pump. Still having problem. Security light is on. Replaced ignition switch. Please advise.


If it is flooding,fuel is not the problem.Sorry you did a pump already.You need to check spark and air,I would start with spark.Check your plugs for spark.If they all spark normal,that also means the ignition coil is good.That leaves air.Check the filter and intake hose for leaks,holes,etc.I would guess spark,but you never know what you'll find.If you are not 100% sure how to check spark,sounds like you probably do though,just comment on this post and I get an auto email linked to here and tell you the best method.Good luck!

No start


I'll give you a list of a few things that could be causing your problem. However, I think it's most likely a bad ignition module. I looked this up on the web and I see a lot of ignition module problems for the 2002 Escape. I checked the Ford recall list but there was no recall issued for what looks to be a very common problem with the ignition module.

Here are some other things that could be causing your problem.
1. Bad ignition coil
2. Clogged fuel filter
3. Clogged air filter
4. Clogged fuel injectors
5. Bad spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and /or rotor.

These cars are famous for leaky seals where the valve cover interfaces with the cylinder head, at the spark plug journals. They fill with oil, short the coils and cause a misfire. Driving it any significant distance can destroy your catalytic converters ad unburnt fuel ignites therein, creating inferno-like conditions and a fire hazard too. You'll get a "300 code", such as 301 if cylinder 1 is misfiring, 302 for # 2, etc. Pull the coil off the spark plug for that cylinder and if it is moist at all, that's your issue. Have new seals put in, or you'll just keep blowing coils at $50 a whack.
