It sounds like you may have a dirty or defective IAC (Idle air control) motor or a vacumn leak. I am assuming that you have a 4.0 liter V6. These engines have some vacumn line on the intake that is bad about developing leaks over time and have to be replaced. Should'nt be an exspensive fix.

2004 grand am se v6 sometimes wont start unless gas pedal is pushed


when you say -turn over do you mean firing-turning over to me means the starter motor is cranking or turning over-firing is when combustion happens in the cylinders-as far as the cranking continuing-try some wd40 in the ignition switch-it may be hanging up-Denny

My 1995 ford explorer has a hard time starting. I have a new battery and alternator in. Could it be my starter.


Hi,
Sounds kinda vague. Hard starting, like cranking and cranking? Or no cranking?

Jeep Unlimited starts but then stalls immediately


The accelerator is the gas pedal...how are you cranking the gas pedal in park? and, if it only stays running when you are doing this how are you "ready to go"? Was the battery tested? if the engine turns over (cranks) when you turn the key, likely there is nothing wrong with it. If you can drive it after doing whatever you do to get it running, it's doubtful that the ignition switch is bad. If it runs well after you get it started, it has nothing to do with spark plugs.
Fuel pump may be draining back and loosing pressure but you need to have pressure tests done to verify that. If you cannot crank the engine in neutral, I'd check the neutral safety switch....it should start in either park or neutral. The pump and switch are about $200 apiece...good idea to test them before spending money not to fix the problem!!!
Hope I got this right...your post is a bit confusing.

Engine turns, catches, then dies


Could be the ignition switch. When you crank the engine, the ignition coil gets a voltage source that is different than when the car runs.This would give you the symptom you describe.

93 yukon 350 wont stay running at idle


when you crank the engine do you see fuel spraying from injectors .if you dont check for power at injector connectors one side should power and the other will be ground controlled from pcm.you can test with a 12 volt test for both. first test with test light grounded for power then test with test lead clip to battery to pos to the other wire from pcm while cranking engine light should flash.if it does turn key off again lean over tbi and have somone turn key on and listen for fuel circulating through tbi unit if you hear it without cranking engine replace fuel pressure regulator.
