Try putting in a new starter. Try a compression test, check valve clearances. Check transmission fluid. Check clutch play. If the clutch is too tight it will stress the starter also.

93 saturn wont start unless you hold dowm gas pedal


Have you tried cycling the key a few(3-5) times, before cranking(and trying to start it?
What i mean is turn your key on, then off, and on, then off(3-5 times), and then turn the key back on, and try to crank/start the vehicle, See what that does!

If that works then you have a fuel leak somewhere.

if that DOES'NT work, fuel is leaking into your engine while it sits
(more than likely bad fuel injectors!)

Ever since i ran my isusu rodeo out of gas, it will crank but it does not want to crank. I've add additives to clean the injectors, i've changed the EGR sensor, with very little help. cld u give...


maybe it didnt run out of gas but just shut down, if it did run out it may have sucked up dirt from the botoom of the tank causing the fuelpump to lock up, what you can try to see if the pump starts again is to spray starting fluid into throtle body and cranking the engine, the engine should start and will die out after fluid is burnt but may stay running if power stays to pump and it frees up, you may have to try this a few times, if you spray and it doesnt start then you may have a diffrent problem. make sure to have someone hold pedal to floor and spray for 3sec, then release gas pedal connect hose to throtlebody and try to start. good day.

How can I bypass the starter in my car(manual trans) so it will start? I had the battery checked and it's fine.


  • If the engine cranks ("rrr-rrr-rrr") when you turn the key, then the problem isn't the starter or the battery.Plan to have at least one person sitting in the driver's seat and one or two persons pushing.Turn off all accessories (radio, wipers, lamps).Turn the key to the "on" position.Depress the clutch pedal with your foot.Put the transmission in first or second gear.Release the hand brake and the foot brake.Note that the people pushing need to get the car rolling as fast as they can. This works best down a hill or an incline.Release the clutch pedal while giving the engine a little gas with the gas pedal once the car is moving about as fast as you can run. The engine should start

    No fuel after running out of gas and adding more fuel


    Run out of fuel....prior the car is running....now after refueling, the engine won't start....if this is the problem,

    Make sure the battery is cranking and strong.
    Pressed gas pedal 4 times before starting.
    Repeat above 3 times in 10 seconds per attempt.
    Now press on the gas pedal pemanently while starting.

    If this didn't work...get a syringe and scoop some gasoline from your fuel gas container and remove the rubber connectig from your trottle body and spray the syringe fuel inside and return the rubber hose. This should start the engine, unless your fuel tank is equipped automatic shut-off then you have to pound the rear end of your car where the fuel entry is located or push the button on the inside your trank to open the flow of fuel to the engine. Check your manual.

    Will not start. have ignition but will not start


    if it seems to be getting fuel let it set for a few minute, turn on the key without cranking the engine, then crank engine do not step on the gas pedal. if it still doesn't start check your fuse. if the fuse is good, then your problem might start to get a little expensive.

    The owner's manual offers these tips on starting in cold weather. First, do not touch the gas pedal and crank the engine for no longer than 15 seconds. If no start, hold the gas pedal halfway down and crank for no longer than 15 seconds. If no start, hold gas pedal all the way down and crank for 15 seconds. If no start, hold gas pedal halfway down and crank for 15 seconds. During any one of the start attempts with the gas pedal part/all the way down, if the engine should start, slowly release the pedal so the engine will not race. Remember that fuel does not atomize as easily in cold weather and can be a problem.
