First, make sure the cap is on tight at the fuel tank.

Then, investigate the loud clicking noise in the engine.
Check engine oil level and add as necessary.

If this doesn't solve the problem repost your problem.

Catera 2000 Catera wont start, acts like no gas, fuel pump not heard,


https://s10.postimg.org/3ufs1il6x/fuel_pump.jpg

Click on the link for fuel pump wiring, note the fuses. Use a gage and check fuel pressure.
Key on engine off, can you hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds? If not, have to check wiring circuits and fuses--grounds, possibly a fuel pump issue?
Engine cranking do you have spark at the plugs, I'm just trying to decide if more than one issue? Any applicable trouble codes?

Radiator fan makes noise for a bout 5-10 min after start


There may be a problem but some cars keep the radiator fan running after motor has been turned off to help cool the engine. My car uses this system but if it is cool out (below 60 degrees) it will not keep the fan running.

I HAVE A 2000 CATERA AND IT CRANKS BUT WILL NOT START WHAT CAN BE? I NEED YOUR HELP PLEASE!


There are only 3 things that will make the engine run:
1. Fuel,
2. Spark,
3. Compression.

1. Check you are getting fuel to the cylinders, you should hear a motor sound in the fuel tank when key is cycled on and off. Check for fuel pressure at the fuel rails, the injectors should buzz.

2. Check for spark, test the output at the coil banks.

3. If all the above check out, you may not have compression maybe a broken timing belt?

Does it try to kick at all? Are you using a good key; the security system will check the key program and if not correct, will shut down the fuel pump.

No fuel getting to where it needs to be.


Check that the fuel pump is working. Take th egas cap off and have some-one turn on the ignition to run. If you hear a light motor sound it should be OK.
If not, you need to make sure you are using the right key for the car. The key is coded and if it is not the correct key, the engine will crank but the fule will be cut off via the pump.

Check the fuses (under the steering column behind panel) for a fuel pump circuit. I beleive there is fuel pump relay which needs to be checked.
