Code 55 means end of message, Code 12 means controller has been cleared, in other words you disconnected the battery, You are a OBD 1,which means once you turn the key off,you loose the code its votile.You are right about the fuel tank area, As long as you know the symptom you will know the problem,You basically are describing a fuel issue, leaving the vehicle sit for hours with a failing pump will start,when the fuel pump brushes wear out the counter electromotive forces are not there to initiate the pump unless the resistance is low,this is why waiting hours before it start it starts.

Depressurize the radiator of a 2005 Buick LeSabre. I would like a detailed diagram of how to do it along with instructions. Thanks.


Simply shutting off the vehicle and waiting till the engine cools down will depressurize the cooling system once the engine has cooled for half an hour to an hour or so turn the radiator cap slowly till it releases any remaining pressure. If the cap is to hot to touch or you can not hold onto it for long enough to open it than the engine is too hot yet and needs to cool longer.

Have you investigated the cooling system. Inspected all of those sensors? Normally a bad sensor would throw a code out, but it's worth a shot. Also go to basic stuff. Just throwing out ideas, flush and fill, thermostat, etc. Sometimes the biggest pain in the but is the easy stuff.

Hope this helps! Don't forget to rate.

Sounds like the crankshaft position sensor needs to be replaced. They are a common problem with the Mercedes. That sensor is the one that the engine control module looks at to see if the engine is running. When they get hot and stop producing a signal the engine control module thinks the engine is not running and shuts of the fuel. After waiting awhile they cool down and the vehicle will start up again. I've changed many of them when I worked at the dealer. Tricky part is when there working and the car is running there will be no check engine light on or code stored. Usually will only have the code when the car won't start. Let me know what you end up finding out on it but that would be the first place to look and probably the cheapest.

This is a prtty uncommon problem. You should have the spark and fuel pressure checked when the engine will not start to see what system is shutting down. Sometime fuel pumps that are failing can shut down and then not allow the engine to restart until it cools down. By checking the spark, and fuel pressure this will tell you which way to go to try to figure out why it wont start after dying.

91 vw golf will not stay running after 15 minutes


You are losing oil pressure, this means your oil pump is probably out. Don't drive it anymore until you can get that repaired. It's shutting down because it's siezing up. You need the extra power to jump it because the piston rings and wall are sticking together, let it all cool down and the rings contract and loosens up. Allowing the engine to turn.
