I have a 2001 Malibu and my car won't start. I


Mine just had these same symptoms, and it was because the fuel pump had died, and I had to replace it. But first, check the fuse panel to see if maybe there's a dedicated fuse for the fuel pump. If so, it may e as easy and inexpensive as replacing that. I wish you luck! I had no transportation for three weeks before I could get it fixed!

Car randomly won't start


first thing to do is to add a relay in your starter. relay should be connected to the solenoid of your starter then giving it addition amperes to let the starter motor running.

if adding a relay does not do the trick. replace the carbons bushings in your starter.

another problem should be your ignition timing. if you are experiencing hard starting only when the engine is hot, then your ignition timing is overly advanced.

96 Chrysler concorde 3.5L, I have consistantly pull the gas after start or it won't stay started. As is the pcm forgot the idle. Once its warmed up it will have a rough idle and eventualy die. What...


I have a 1996 LHS, same 3.5L engine, loved the riding and smoothness when i bought it 2 years ago..... F@#$%ng money pit, a POS scam artist of a mechanic charged me 4200 for new front end suspension a year ago which is already shot again, after that i insisted on doing everything on this car myself. As i have no professional training nor do i have a stocked garage this goes without saying is a daunting task.I recommend buying or borrowing(local library) a Chilton and/or Haynes manual. The Chrysler Concorde is the same car different body style as my LHS, a Piece of something.. I'm in the midst of learning about the idling, as i have an opposite problem with too high rpms.

So far, i've concluded that some sensors only malfunction during certain conditions, i.e. cooling temperature sensor that activates fans, also can cause rich or lean fuel/air mixtures. It sounds to me like something is inducing a rich fuel mixture(high rpms) and your PCM (LHS' under air filter compartment) is overcompensating and has stored into its memory leading to a lean running car. I know it doesn't answer your question but hopefully it'll spark an idea. when i figure it out exactly i'll let you know.

1999 chevy k2500. changed spark plugs 4 times in 7 months. Runs good for a week then doesn't start. Changed spider, throttle body sensor. Still has no codes and once again won't start.


The next time it won't start ,pull a sparkplug wire and see if you're getting fire.Then we'll known whether its a ignition or fuel problem and go from there.

The car won't start-- 3 to 7 time per week


you might have a worn out resistor pellet in your ignition key and the cars security system senses this and puts the car in a passive bypass mode...usually about 10 minutes before it"ll allow a restart...have the resistance check done on your key a locksmith. they can make you a new key. a good recognized key should reset the system...if this doesnt work then it"ll probably be the security computer system that is going bad.
