You may have a leaking fuel injector. measure fuel pressure at engine shut down and see if pressure bleeds down. remove vacuum hose from fuel pressure regulator and see if fuel comes out of nipple on pressure regulator when you turn the key to on. If yes replace regulator. check oil for gas contamination.

2003 saturn L300 starts and runs for about 5 min then dies. wont start again untill it sets for 30 min. then it will run another 5min. and shut off


When it shuts off it is time to check things out. Check fuel pressure on the fuel rail and check for spark at the plugs. If no spark the coils may be bad. As the engine heats up the inside of the coil pack may be seperating or grounding themself out. If fuel pressure is low the fuel pump may be weak and on its way out. This happens to people that run there car untill the fuel light comes on.it is ******* the fuel pump because the fuel it's pumping is what cools it. You can search on google or youtube for what your particular cars fuel pressure should be.

99 z71 hesitates real bad right after you start it for about 1/2 mile then ok until you shut it off and start it again. doesnt matter if its cold,hot, or already been drivin


what motor..fuel injected or not ? ..any leak under the truck...have to see if its fuel or electronics ...put a clear piece of hose in the gasline too see if you have air bubbles in the fuel......1st try starting it with the fuel cap offf ..see if that does it ..if it cranks for a bit to start you fuel could be flowing back to the tank when not running...but i would guess you gasline has a loose connection pr starting to rot

Hello, Car will start until warm then shut off then won't start again until cool then same thing happens over again


As with any no start issue you will need to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel problem to proceed. Check the plugs for spark and the fuel pressure the next time it will not start.
Could be a faulty relay, ignition module, coil or other electrical component.
Let us know what you find.

We just purchased a 2002 Ford Escort. Tonight, when starting the car, it ran very rough and then died. We started it again and it ran fine after that. It has happened twice and it has only happened when...


Could be a idle air problem. The injector could be leaking when you shut it off ..Try some injector cleaner see if it gets better..The idle air shouldnt run rough just idle real low or sometimes it will get stuck and idle high....Are you losing any antifreeze..If you are the 2.0 SOHC engine bad about leaking antifreeze into the cylinder and makes the engine run rough until it burns it out..See if you can see the smoke coming out when it happens..White smoke indicates antifreeze,,Black smoke indicates fuel..

03 cavalier starts then dies


Generally when this happens all the time the fuel pump relay has gone bad. Upon starting any GM car up the fuel pump operates off the third wire on the oil pressure switch. When the oil pressure reaches operating pressure which happens in a few seconds the computer shuts off the current from the oil pressure sending unit and opens the circiut flow to the fuel pump relay. The relay will run ythe fuel pump until you shut the engine off. Replace the fuel pump relay and you shall have a good running car again

1990 Ranger 2.9 runs pretty well until you shut it off and try to start it back. Smells like it is not getting fuel(real lean). Fuel pump and filter are new. What holds pressure to the fuel rail when off?...


nothing really except sometimes your fuel lines. you should have replaced the fuel filter when you replaced the pump so your pump lasts a lil longer. a clogged filter overloads the pump
