SOURCE: Engine starts after about 20 seconds

my 215000mile Audi a4 starts immediately every time. Very likely to be timing related, especially if it was okay before the belt change. Hard starting for slightly mistimed engines is a known problem.

SOURCE: when i start my car it just cuts off again this happens a few times then works fine, also after a few miles of driving the abs warning light comes on my car is an N reg audi A4 automatic 1.8

Hi, I had the same problem. it is the imoboliser, it reads a code in your key while starting. you need to get the code in the key reprogramed. if that wont work you will need to get a new ignition barrel. Audi dealer will reprogram your key.

SOURCE: rattle noise from engine at start up for a few

The oil pump is not getting oil into the top of the engine quick enough on start up

I have a similar problem with a Mazda

Got over it by adding a can of STP Oil treatment to the engine

That coats the surfaces better than the standard oils and cuts down on the noise and the wear factor

Hi there again

Sorry to hear you are still having problems.If you are going to change the pump I would certainly not recommend you do it yourself.If it is the V4 motor I am thinking of, you would need to get to it by removing the rear seat ,remove access panel , and pretty much play around in the gas for an hour or so to get it off in the first place.

What I did find was this on the net on a recall by Audi to replace 2002/03 model fuel pumps as noted below.

RE: 2002 Audi A4 Fuel Pump Change:


I just had my fuel pump changed out by the dealer. Here is what the letter said-

"Safety Recall JL 2003 year Audi A4 quattro with 1.8L Turbo or 3.0L engine and 2003 Model year Audi A6 with 3.0L engine"
The fuel pump on some affected vehicles may contain a carbon brush set that is susceptible to premature wear.

On invoice it says-

JL12 Install fuel delivery unit and sealing washer.
1 8E0-919-133-G Washer
1 8E0-906-087-P Fuel Pump

No charge for unit or install. Just call them up and give the vin number to see if your car is affected. On the other note of your code error '1&3 misfire',try and have it re-set (it might be an old error)and see if it comes back. Hope this helps ,and I will research your problem further with pleasure if need more help.

My 2006 Altima sometimes doesn't start right away it will start the second time it turns over. Doesn't happen all the time .


Treat it like a diesel. Turn the key round to auxiliary, leave for a few seconds for the fuel pump to initialise and then turn it the rest to start.

Engine won't start straight away


Your Rio should be fuel injected,it should start without touching the gas. Try this, just "bump" the starter,turn the key off,wait like 10 seconds and try it. If that helps ,replace the fuel filter

My 2004 cavalier will not turn over without excessive pumping of the gas pedal. Battery, starter and everything else seems to be fine. Is it the pump or something else?


Try this next time you start it. Turn the key to the run position, do not start the engine. Wait 3-5 seconds and turn the key off. Turn the key right back to the on position and wait for 3-5 seconds. Turn the key off. Repeat the above one more time. Now try to start. If it starts right up you have a fuel supply problem. Either the fuel pump is bleeding off or the fuel pressure regulator is leaking. Pumping the pedal is doing nothing besides buying time for the fuel system to pressurize. Post an engine size and I'll help you locate the fuel pressure regulator. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

2006 Saturn ION2 won't start. Happens every few


This is a very common problem with the Saturn. It's a bad ignition switch. You need to replace it.

Google on common saturn problems and you'll see that hundred of Saturn owners have had this very problem.

It's really amusing how each dealer prances around it and doesn't tell their customers that it's a common problem. If you bring it to them they will know right away what the problem is but they may pretend not to know right away...EVERY Saturn dealer has fixed this on dozens and dozens of their vehicles...

My Mazda mx3 starts up idles for a couple seconds then dies.


Before you replace the fuel pump, I would check the cheaiper parts first. Such as fuel filter and injectors.

You either have a bad solenoid on your starter OR a bad ignition switch as these are the only two things that can cause the symptom you describe... I lean to the solenoid first, RARELY does an ignition switch sieze up in the start position but it is a possibility. Several national chain parts stores can test the starter for you (GM starters have the starter solenoid mounted directly to the starter and you need to remove the starter to get to it, so you would take the whole unit in to test it... REMEMBER to disconnect the battery first!)

Takes multiple times to start


I think you have a faling fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator allowing fuel pressure to bleed down when the engine is off.
Try this test - When you start the car for the first time of the day, turn the key to "ON", wait a few seconds, turn the key off. Wait about 15 seconds, turn the key to "ON" again, wait a few seconds. Then wait one final time for 1 seconds and try starting the car. If it starts right away, that means fule pressure is bleeding of due to a bad check vavle int he fuel pump, a bad fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator.

The reason for the procedure is because when you turn the key to "ON", the fuel pump runs for 2 seconds and then shuts off if the engine is not running. The 15 seconds wait is for the power and fuel pump relay to cycle off before it will run the pump again.

Let us know how the test comes out. The fuel pump is in the fuel tank and hums when it is running.

Problems when starts..


Turn your key on for 10 seconds but do not start the engine. That will give the fuel pump time to built pressure. After the 10 seconds try starting the engine. If it starts right away you may have a weak pump or dirty filter.
