The water pump as long as it is not leaking is probably not the problem unless there is a LOT of sediment in the chamber.

Have it flushed out and replace the antifreeze with a 50/50 mixture and go from there.

WONT RESTART AFTER SHORT TRIPS AND ENGINE HEATS TO NORMAL


If you can duplicate the event in your driveway, you can check fuel pressure and spark at the plugs when it won't start to narrow down the possible causes.

1997 chey lumina runs fine until motor warm-up then shut off and won't start until motor cool off


Try getting your transmission solenoid replaced. After I got mine replaced it ran fine after that. That's the exact same thing my Lumina was doing.

My 1995 jimmy start die over and over


Josh, same problem with my suburban, very frustrating. Two issues to check.
Underneath your distributor cap and ECM module there is the pickup coil. The reluctor is most likely corroded really bad. It is about one hour work but you would be surprised how dirty and corroded that area gets. The reluctor is a fixed part of the distributor shaft and the little nubs break magnetic field which is
processed by your onboard computer. If the pulses are not correct the computer is telling your TBI injectors to spray which will flood out your engine. Ten of fifteen minutes later, it will start up again and then die shortly after. Have a new pick up coil on hand too ($10.00) since your in there. My reluctor looked like it was in Vavy Jones locker it was so crusty. Second- the fuel relay. Nororious for developing little cracks on the mini circuit breaker which get wider as voltage and amps increase due to resistance (dirt,moisture). The relay will shut off the fuel pump if the oil pressure signal gets cut, and if your breaker/circuit board is
bad the board heats up and trips off your fuel. When the board cools off in ten or fifteen minutes, starts up and then dies when engine gets warm/hot. It really had me stumped for quite some time. Hope ths cuts your wrench time down considerably.

Replacing the thermastat because it wont heat up that well. Just had the radiator flushed also


the thermostat is probably the problem. Check it on the stove to make sure that it opens and closes at the right temperature, it seems many bad thermostats are showing up. Also buy a good one, maybe at the dealer. I wonder if all these bad stats come from China?

My car anti-theft seems to have kicked in and I can't get it to start. What do I do next?


hi, you can perform the reset with just your key and a battery charger to see if this will allow for restart. what you do is, hook up a battery charger to start with, low amperage setting like 15 amp, or maybe 2 amp, and leave it on the battery, you will be leaving the key on for up to an hour and the battery must not die during this time. turn the key on and try to start once for about 1-2 seconds, then let go and let key rest in run position for fifteen minutes at minimum. then turn off the key, wait ten seconds, and turn on again to run position only, leave on for another fifiteen minutes, then again, turn off for ten seconds, turn back on to run position for fifteen minutes. after this time, turn the key off, wait ten seconds, and try to start the car. if it starts, check to see if the check engine light is illuminated, or the security light is on, if one or the other is on, take to a shop and have codes checked and diagnosed, if no lights on, you should be able to drive on. if the vehicle does not start after three reset key cycles, try the process one more time. it may have been interupted somehow. if you try twice and still no start, you have to have diagnosed further, maybe in the key, maybe in the lock cylinder, maybe in the theft module.
