Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Car wouldn't start. It tried to start but wouldn't, so I just left it alone. Some people told me it might be the fuel pump? I live to far to have it towed to a dealership or auto body shop. I even bought a new car battery.

2000 Pontiac Grand Am SE security system wont let car start


first most GM OEM systems will need to recognize the key first and foremost ,to do that you will need to roll window down on driver door,turn the key to the run position and with engine NOT running leave the key on for 10 minutes exactly ..then turn ignition off then try to start engine. if original system is working engine should start normally

Can a faulty ignition switch ALONE cause 0 fuel pressure when cranking?


If you have 100,000 miles or close to it you needed or would need a fuel pump anyway.Your mechanic sounds like a knowledgeable skilled honest one, he didn't even charge you for some items.
Stick with him/her as you both will get all the problems solved.
The work he has done is smart logical work so far.
Next time it does not start right away,keep cranking the engine to get the oil pressure up.If it starts when the oil pressure builds it may be you are not getting a prime cycle when you first turn on the key some times.

I have a 2001 L100 seires Saturn and My service light and the security light both are on and the car wont start. the battery seems to be fine all the lights work i left it alone for a while and it started...


No, the fuel gauge not working wouldn't have anything to do with your not starting problem , probably the gauge is bad . With the SECURITY light lit , anti-theft system problem ! Service light ????? Service engine soon ? Or service vehicle ? With the light's on code's DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are stored . Have it checked , don't guess as to what the problem is. This would prevent the buying of un needed parts .

I recently bought a 93' Grand Prix, it's only 130k


If it acted like it wanted to start, then I would suspect the fuel pump. Try hitting the bottom of the tank, this sometimes jars the pump to start working again. If it works you can drive it, but you will need to replace the pump, it will only do this so many times.

Vehicle will not start. Had the fuel pump replaced at a dealer about two years ago. the last time it would'nt start I took it to a garage close to my house and they told me the fuel pump needed to be...


you could be getting air in the fuel system lines, sometimes caused by heat , but most the time its caused by a tiny leak in the fuel system itself, on the end of the rail that leads to the fuel injectors there is a bolt head, loosen it as someone else turns the key to the on position, if the pump is working correctly you should have fuel blasting out of that loosened bolt, if not, you have a pump problem, if it does, then you have an other problem, if the car turns over but won't start , you need to check for spark on the plugs, ( thats the easiest way ) you can see how to do that in this video along with some other things to check , watch the part about spark plugs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=064Ilsz8Fzg&feature=related

My first thought would be: If you repaired an emissions hose, take the car back to Auto Zone (or another parts supplier) and let them tell you what code comes up now. You eliminated one problem, now you have to find another.
I wouldn't do a fuel pump without more information.

You vehicle is equipt with a fail safe device the oil pressure switch, the fuel pump will run as long as the oil pressure is okay if this switch has failed you experience extensive long cranking time the oil pressure switch activate the fuel pump replace that switch leave the fuel pump alone.

1995 Cadillac Seville SLS stalls out


It sounds like it may be time for a new fuel filter, try replacing the fuel filter first. The filter has a life of 30,000 miles or one year, if it has not been changed, good chance that it's the fuel filter. Take not that a dirty fuel filter will make your fuel pump run hotter and will shorten the life of the fuel pump which is the more costly repair of the two. Good luck and keep me posted, Be glad to help you get your car running 100% again.
