New 95 sunfire..problems already, to be expected though
Hi, i just bought a 95 sunfire, 5 gr , 4 dr plan jane no options,,its got a 2.2l in it, and its running pretty good, once in awhile i need to give it gas to get it going, the starter cranks but doesnt engage for about 30 secs, i know your not suppose to give it gas cause its fuel injected, but i needed it started, so then i smell gas. My question is how do you tell when the fuel pump is going south? The valve cover is missing a bolt in the middle, that cant be good. the manifold gets really hot, i dropped a piece of grease on it when iwas cleaning it and it smoked. Yea, i got a great deal on it, anm will to put money into it, a new moter even if it needs it, this one has 277,000 on it,can you help me out with my new project?
Re: New 95 sunfire..problems already, to be expected...
The fuel pump will show failure usally under load. when the car needs more gas. should idle fine but when you accelerate it will putt. hope it helps. maybe a starter cylinoid. you said it doesnt crank? if it does crank always check spark and fuel first. could be cps.(crankshaft position sensor)

If battery light is on while engine is running, then the charging system is bad. That is, you will need a new alternator. If the battery is a couple years old, you may have now stressed it a lot also. Expect it to show signs of failure too, quite soon if not already. First thing is to change out the alternator. Put the battery on charge for a while too. Then after new alternator, see if you have weak starting problems over next week or so.
i asked this question on my quad 4 engine,you take the cover off that is on top of the motor that says quad 4,it has 4 long bolts in it,be careful not to lose the washers that are under the bolts,pull the cover up and you will see the plug boots,no wires here,just boots,and watch the ignition module conecters there ,you can unplug it if you want,but i just angle the cover out of the way,and if you change plugs,you might as well get plug boots to.every time i take my cover off the plug boots come apart.
If you have to ask me such a question then you're not qualified to do the swap. Just so you know there isn't enough room on this site to address the issues (problems) you'll have in attempting such a swap. Better off just buying a 6.
I had this problem on my daughters 2004 sunfire. I found a new switch on ebay and tried to do it myself. I found a website that had instructions. I dont remember what it was but you can find it if you look hard enough. I just followed the instructions. I had to remove the cover under the steering wheel where your knees are. then I tried everything to pop it out but couldn't. It said to drill out a pin(key type thing) so I really looked at the ignition switch(the new switch helped me see how it worked better) and found what they were talking about then just started drilling, I admitt that I thought I was really messing the thing up but I was out of options at that point, I broke about 4 or 5 bits because of the impossible angle, oh yeh I bought a right angle drill to do the job. I just found the artical. You only need this if your key wont turn the ignition. I forgot about that. Well give it a try its not as hard as it seems and I did a little damage but it didnt affect the ignition operation.
