Hard starting when cold. 30 sec to min crank. Runs good after start.


Hi Thomas:
Sounds like it's not getting fuel right away.
I'd be checking the choke, and also perhaps try priming by pushing gas pedal all the way down twice, spin over 2 or 3 seconds, then pump gas pedal twice again, then try to start.
None of this is valid if it is a diesel.

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

Engine wont start


-Check spark plug. It could be too wet of gasoline it you crank so many times and not fire.
-Try this: Hole the gas pedal all the way down then start. Make sure as soon as it fire release the gas pedal immediately.

Car ran out of gas and when I put more gas in the tank, I have a check engine light, however the car turns over, but does't start. What can I do?


Fuel injected vehicles can be very unforgiving when they run out of gas. Add as much fuel to the tank as the situation allows and then get some one to give you a boost. While cranking the engine hold the gas pedal to the floor and keep it there until (hopefully) it starts. Do not pump the pedal. Just keep it pressed to the floorboards. It should fire up. Crank engine for about 30 second intervals and then let it rest about a minute before trying again. That way you will not burn up the starter.

First thing to do is replace you fuel filter, If there is a check engine light have the code read, Most parts store will do this for free. Get the code number type that into google for further advise.

Experienced recent cold weather. Car will not


It's flooded like you say.
If it's really flooded, you'll have to remove plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
Now when you crank engine, hold gas pedal to floor.
That will stop gas from spraying into engine.
You need to get the gas out of the engine for it to start.
Crank for 20-30 seconds with pedal to floor. Do this 3 times waiting 2-3 minutes inbetween cranks.
The starter needs to cool down.
Then after that start normally and see if it will start.
Remember if it will not start after 2 attempts, then the possiblity of it flooding is there and you'll have to clear out the gas by holding the pedal to the floor again.

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.

Car won't start!!


AmyLynn001, 1st thing, let the car sit for a couple hours (because u smell gas, it's definitely flooded). Turn the key to start (do NOT touch the gas pedal!! Cars are designed now to start w/out touching the gas pedal. If u do, u will flood it, and make it even more difficult to start) When u turn the key, only hold it to turn the engine over for no more than 10 seconds. If after the 10 seconds it doesn't start, turn key off, wait about 10 seconds, repeat. (this is to reduce wear and tear on the starter, and to not run the battery down real quick). It sounds like several problems coming together caused this. U state that the car needs a tune up, it's likely the overheating, need of a tune up (car not performing to optimum efficiency) and pushing on the gas pedal, resulting in flooding, all came together to create this no start condition. Eliminate any one (preferably all!) and u should be able to start the car. So, hopefully just letting it sit and not touching the gas pedal while attempting to start will be enough to get u back on the road, then get that tune up soon. Let me know how u make out.
