Won`t start when cold


No such thing on your car.
The temp sensor tells the computer what the engine coolant temp is.
If it were faulty you would get a check engine light.
I would have the fuel pressure checked before and after you crank the engine. The pump relay provides power to the pump when you turn the key on to recover some of the lost fuel pressure after the car sits. The one way valve in the pump is supposed to prevent the pressure from dropping.
If the fuel pressure drops to zero it could take some time to crank the engine enough to get it back up.

Car has been sitting; will turn over but won't start. Used starting fluid and car starts but quits. Won't fire without starting fluid. There is fuel in the tank. Help!!


My first thought is to check the fuel pump operation.
Check to see if fuel pump is getting power.

This is how I check the pump.

Usually there is an in-line fuel filter that can be removed.
While its removed...bump the starter to see if gas shoots out the gas line.
If not, there might be a clog at the pump...or the pump needs replacing.

Hope this helps...

There is a fuel pump prime cycle (2 or 3 seconds)when you turn the key to on and once you start the engine the fuel pump power comes though the oil pressure switch.No oil pressure,no power to the pump.maybe your oil pressure switch has become weak?I would use a scan tool and command the fuel pump on when it does shut off,just to make sure the pump can run,as it could be a bad pump too.Also when it does quit,if you turn the key off for 10 seconds, you should get a prime cycle by turning the key to on.Have someone listen at the gas tank for a fuel pump noise,which will be only 2 or 3 seconds,but will do as a pump running check.Next would be to check for power at the back at or near the fuel pump,power and no pump.replace pump.No power to pump,follow power back to the front through oil pressure switch and fuel pump relay etc.You can always add your own power to the pump from a power source the switches off with the key if needed bypassing the existing wiring and oil pressure switch.

Replaced fuel pump & still car wont start on 97 olds 88


The fuel pump most likely is not the problem,replace the crankshaft sensor,it tells the computer to pulse the injectors,and the spark.

what is the fuel pressure reading, bet it's zero. replace the fuel pump and the fuel filter. when fuel gets old it gums up the pump and it won't spin and produce pressure, very common complaint on stored cars, i.e. no fuel pressure.

The engine turns but the car won,t start.


You will need to check for fuel pressure or dirty filter. If you do not have fuel pressure; be sure to check fuses or any relay pertaining to fuel pump (if electric). If fuses and relays are good check or replace fuel filter. If the fuel pump is mechanical disregard fuses & relays and check or replace fuel filter. If this does not resolve the problem then the problem could be the fuel pump if mechanical, If its an electric fuel pump it could be a fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, crimped fuel line or other wiring issue.

These are the most common things I run across, oh, a crimped fuel line can cause the problem in either case electric or mechanical. Hope this helps in some way, been awhile sense I worked with an older car.

Car won't start


Before you do that, you may need to replace the oil sensor switch but you need to have it checked first. If the oil sensor switch is bad, it may not allow your vehicle to start to not risk doing any engine damage.
