I have to pump the gas alot to start my 2005 pt cruiser


You may not believe what I am going to say, but pumping the gas pedal does nothing to make the engine start.
The throttle position sensor does not start sending a signal to the computer until after the engine starts.
However, cranking the engine for an extended period of time could have an effect. If the fuel pressure is low, cranking the engine would build it back up to normal.
I would suggest you have the fuel pressure checked before and after the first attempt of the day. The car would need to sit overnight for the first test.

My van sedona 2005 after i stop it,it won't restart unless i press a few time on the gas pedal ,and also runs rough a bit what could be the cause of it.


May be the starter or fuel pump. Might not be getting gas after turning it off. the gas may be settling to fast into the fuel pump and none staying in the engine. My friends SUV does not start unless you pump the gas pedal. Not an expert but its what i know it could possibly be.

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!

68 302 engine with a elect point conversion kit, engine when hot after shut off for about hour hard starting . have to pump gas befor it catches. it will start right away when hot if you restart it as...


Hi,
What you describe sounds like the fuel in the bowl of the carb is evaporating. A thing to check if you are able is the fuel pump. A pressure test on the fuel pump will determine if the diaphragm in the pump is able to hold pressure after the 302 is shut off. A hot carb will evaporate some fuel in the bowl after shutdown. the pressure of a good fuel pump will add fuel as necessary.
If the carb bowl is empty when trying to start it will take a few turns of the engine a a couple pumps of the gas pedal to get gas to the engine.
This is just a suggestion to try. Sort of test before you buy kind of thing.
Good luck and great engine.

You cranked the car and moved around driveway to allow another car to get out. Shut it off. Now it sounds like the engine is turning over, but no fire, just spinning..


Do you have a Wankel engine in you car?
Then you have a flooded engine.
Pull the fuel pump fuse or relay and crank the engine over......until it starts then stops.
Now put relay or fuse back and start.
You cannot start and stop a Wankel in a Mazda RX when it is in it's cold mode and restart it easily.
Always run them for at least 10 min before shutting it off.
The other way to start after flooding.....is wait a day.

2001 Volvo S60 2.4T starting problem


This car won't start unless the gear is in the P position. Some times the sensor that tells the computer that the gear is in the P position doesn't make a good contact and the car won't start. Move the gear backwards and forwards until it makes a good contact and the car will start again.

Check your IAC idle air control sensor. This is a sensor that makes sure that your car is getting the right amount of mixture with the fuel. It is located in the right back of the engine behine the intake. If this helped pleae rate
