When you say it turns over FAST how does it sound when it turns over, or do you mean it has plenty of battery power to turn the engine over ?
EGR wires melted is not good. Must find out why they melted. Melting wires means shorting out electrical system, not good.
Do you have spark ?, fuel to the fuel rail ?

Car is turning over but wont start seems like gas problem


Listen for the 2 second hum or buzz from the gas tank, when you turn the key to on, not start. The pump should run for about 2 seconds to put pressure in the lines and up to the fuel rail. If you don't hear it, first check the fuel pump fuse, usually in the under hood fuse/relay center. Or you could check for fuel pressure at the testing port-shrader valve- on the fuel rail. If you punch the center valve down with a small screwdriver, gas should try to spurt out. If no pressure, the pump is bad or the wiring to it needs to be investigated. Power flows from the battery to the fuse to the fuel pump relay and then to the gas tank. The relay is turned on by the pcm and allows the relay to pass power on to the pump.

Many parts stores rent or loan fuel pressure gauges to check your fuel pressure. The correct pressure is critical for the injectors to work right. If the car won't start, check fuel pressure and check for spark. Usually gas or spark is the problem.

I cant get the gas tank full


Try slowing down how fast you pump the fuel in, the curve of the tank filler pipe and the stopper valve at the end of the pipe(in the tank)will act as a restriction causing a backup when filling too fast. Or the stopper valve is sticking in the tank. To fix that ,you would have to replace the tank.

White smoke and foam in the gas tank indicates antifreeze leaking into the engine somewhere. Do you smell antifreeze? You may have an engine seal leaking, most likely head gasket. It may be affecting the various engine sensors.

I have a chevy blazer 94 S10 still quit on the road.


How is it running before it quits onyou. This could be the culprit of an egr valve. How many miles on thevehicle. The egr seems to die on a certain mileage pattern. Also youcould start by cleaning the egr valve before replacing it. This couldvery well help the situation, but this is just a guess. Hope thishelps!!

Random misfiring on pistons on a 1996 chevy suburban


1st thing to check is the intake manifold for vacuum leaks, also check and make sure the EGR valve is not leaking when it is closed, to check the intake buy a can of carb spray and sray around the top of the engine, if a leak is present there will be a very noticeable change when the spray is near the vacuum leak. To check the EGR Valve start the engine cold, wait a minute or 2 then spray water on the EGR, if it steams up the water it is leaking exhaust into the engine, this will cause a rough run as well.

Runs sluggish at start up. It will cough, sputter, chug for about a minute(it seems). If you can get the rpm's up, it will sort of walk out of it. We've recently replaced the spark plug wires, oil, fuel...


  • Possible vacuum line related, suspect problem was related to EGR valve, as this was replaced Nov 07. Problem came back this past weekend. noted vacuum line to EGR valve had no vacuum. I removed device-located top front side of the engine near serpentine belt, noted foam filter inside-cleaned filter reassembled and problem cleared. I believe this device (part of emissions System, investigating official name) may be the culprit. This device has two vacuum lines coming in and 1 electrical connection obove the serpentine belt. with the foam filter removed I was able to stall out the engine by placing my finger over the orfice (care-full of the fan belt). This must be an electrical solenoid that goes intermittent.

    Hesitation when accelerating


    I am having the same problem with mine. It hesitates in 2nd gear and seems to come out of it after it gets going. I had the maching put on it and he said it was the EGR Valve. Going to change that here soon. Please let me know if you find out something different on yours.

    Thanks
