Hey there jonablac,
well if it starts and then takes a minute to start up all the way from trying to die or cut out the you need to turn up you engines idle speed or if it starts then dies and won't start again wait a couple of minutes and then try to start it back up beacuase it could mean your engine has gotten a little flooded or you don't have you vehicle's engine idiling speed adjusted fast enough.

I hope this helps,

Caliber will start for a second then die. when i try to start again it will not crank. i have all lights and power in the car seems normal. ill let the car sit for a few hours and it starts fine.


Well if the vehicle starts even for a few seconds .That means you are getting fuel and electrictal supply to give you a spark through the coils wires and disturbuter at least start up .
Then you say you let it sit a few hr's and it starts again
Why did you have to put a new battery in it If it starts fine .
You have a problem with your fuel system not delivering enough fuel .
You can pretty much rule out the electrical system the battery turns the starting motor .
The vehicle it 08 not really old enough for a fuel pump to go but fuel filters clog and that will damage the pump aswell and cause a condution similiar to what you have described and while your at it take out the air filter that will help to .
Give this a try follow the fuel lines from the pump to the engine you will see a fuel filter change it .The vehicle will likely run again
For 10 to 20 dollars out of pocket

I have a 2002 pontiac grand am gt.. i have to start it for about 10 seconds and shut it off then start it again for another 10 seconds i have to do that a few times before it starts. once it starts it...


i would start by taking off the oil filler cap to inspect it and also the oil dip stick to see if there is a white kindof color. if there is then suspect a blown intake gasket. these vehicles are notorious for blowing the intake manifold gaskets. if you find no white coloring in those areas, then try this. first try turning the key over to on for a few seconds( do not start vehicle) just turn it on. then turn it back off for a few seconds. do this for 3 or 4 times in a row then try starting the vehice. if it starts then suspect a weakened fuel pump. if neither of these help, then please repost and i will try father to assist you.

I have an '02 sierra 2500 HD 4x4. When i try starting it takes quite a few cranks to start and it is usually sluggish for a few seconds after it starts. Sometimes it will start normal but more often it...


could be stopped up air filter, fuel filter, or weak fuel pump...try cycling the ignition on several (3 or 4) times and see if it starts any faster...sign of a weak fuel pump.

check your ground cables for corrosion or looseness- it starts slow bwcause everything is still cold, after a few seconds of cranking the voltage heats the cables up and makes a better connection... also check your positive cables.

Takes multiple times to start


I think you have a faling fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator allowing fuel pressure to bleed down when the engine is off.
Try this test - When you start the car for the first time of the day, turn the key to "ON", wait a few seconds, turn the key off. Wait about 15 seconds, turn the key to "ON" again, wait a few seconds. Then wait one final time for 1 seconds and try starting the car. If it starts right away, that means fule pressure is bleeding of due to a bad check vavle int he fuel pump, a bad fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator.

The reason for the procedure is because when you turn the key to "ON", the fuel pump runs for 2 seconds and then shuts off if the engine is not running. The 15 seconds wait is for the power and fuel pump relay to cycle off before it will run the pump again.

Let us know how the test comes out. The fuel pump is in the fuel tank and hums when it is running.

Engine starts after about 5-7 seconds


This almost sounds like the fuel pump check valve is leaking back during the day. Try this to see if it helps. Before you start your car during the day, cycle the key on and off a few times first. This runs the pump for a few seconds and builds up fuel pressure. If it starts immediately after the key cycling, that is most likely your problem.
