This sounds very similar to a problem I had...after replacing the fuel pump, I still had the same problem. Turns out, there's a switch at the bottom of the steering collum that was messed up. It was about $300 to get fixed, but worth every penny!!

SOURCE: no start on duramax at time when hot

sounds like you are loosing the fuel prime from somewhere ? Not sure if you have a lift pump on the side of the engine on that model or not? follow the fuel rails from the tank pump up, and see if it runs into a lift pump or straight to the injector pump. I would guess that you are loosing your prime, so check the line and see if you if they are wet cracked or bent. also when you changed the fuel filter did you happen to notice if the o-ring came off with the last filter or not? You may just have doubled your gasket on the filter. Sometimes they stick on the filter housing and become unnoticed.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Fuel pump does always run on 2000 astro van

I would recheck fuel pressure and see if there was a hose or something let go inside the tank . indicated by no pressure, possibly a faulty pump I've seen new ones **** out, also these vans with the 4.3 were bad for having weak coil wires and shorting out against the inside of the engine cover ( doghouse) good luck.

Sounds like you have water in the gas. Are you in cold country? The whole country is right now. Anyway, if that is the problem, It could have easily come from the gas station, there tanks condensate too, Get a can of dry gas. If that is not it, get the code checker on there and see what it says, could be an o2 sensor, something in the air horn sensor. a bunch of things most people don't even know exist. hope this helps.

Engine will turn over freely but will not start. engine was running when it sputtered and died and will not restart on a 2000 Crysler Sebring Coupe, 2.5, 2 door. May have ran out of gas. added 5 gal but...


see if the cam is turning when trying to start the engine (look through the oil filler cap) if its not, you may have a broken timing belt (and engine damage) if it wasn't empty on the fuel gauge I doubt it ran out of gas.

This morning my 2000 Z71 Silverado 1500 had trouble starting. It took about 3 attempts, then started sputtered and die. On the 4th attempt I pumped the gas, held the engine rev about 3500 then it was fine....


May be a problem with the mass air flow sensor located on the air cleaner assembly. Dust particles sometimes collect on the very small resistors on the MAF Sensor. Buy some electronic dust spray you use for computers and spray the resistors. Be carefull not to touch them, they are very sensitive. Thanks.

On Saturday my car would turn over. the battery


Nothing you've you said seem out of the ordinary.
You do need to remove ALL the corrosion from the battery and then put Vaseline over the terminals so that it doesn't happen again.
The battery is not fully charged - it can take awhile, and depends how far you drive - and the corrosion can keep the car from charging it when you driving.
SO - clean it up and then charge it and it should start better.
