The ignition module may be at fault here have it tested at the parts store,they are bad to go out .It will most likely be a tfi,module on the distributor,it will be grey in color most likely.If it is not mounted on the out side of the distributor,then it is mounted on the fender well on drivers side and will have large black connectors going to it.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Truck will start but engine dies and service engine soon light comes on/truck was idleing fine for 10 minutes then began to hesitate then shut off when first happened


When the engine dies the Check eng light is supposed to come on. You need to do a fault code test on the OBD2 engine control module.

92 vw passat 2.0 16v wont start.


I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

'79 Chevy van has been in storage for five years. How do I get it running again?


Start by cleaning the fuel tank (water from condensation accumulates in it), clean the fuel lines, clean and adjust the carburettor, drain the old oil, remove the sparkplugs,put some fine oil in the cylinders and crank the engine manually, put new oil,oil filter,sparkplugs,distributor cap and air filter, replace the water and start the engine. Check for leaks, run the engine for an hour followed by an oil engine cleaner.

I have a 88 Fiero GT V6 that has sat for over a year without starting. I put in 5 gallons of gas, and used starting fluid. Starts, but only keeps running while fuel is poured into intake. I suspect water...


1) Running fuel pump to remove water from tank will likely not empty it all, but it might help. Will still be some liquid in bottom of tank.

2) More than likely, the gas has gummed up and is no good, While your draining of the tank will help, may still need to change the fuel filter and clean the injectors. The ability to keep engine running while pouring into the intake is a good sign, but mayfind that more parts need to be cleaned and replaced prior to solving the problem.

1991 Cadillac Brougham not getting gas


The fuel pump is located on the frame undrneath the passenger side rear door.If you have the throtle body injection used on the 305 engine the electric fuel pump puts out about 8 psi.
Sounds like you have a clogged fuel pump. Not that bad to change if you have the special tool needed to remove the fuel lines to the pump. Ask your local Auto parts store for help.
