Why is it very hard to start, has no power, will barely move, then dies?


Lack of information,dear. Perhaps fuel pump (need to check pressure not less than 2.5 at idle),need to scan it for trouble codes(perhaps one of crank sensors),first check visually for all pipes and hoses for no leak.

My 1999 Mitsubishi galant starts but stalls after 2 seconds


Sounds like a fuel delivery problem or lack of air. Check all fuses and relays associated with fuel delivery system. Check your battery and definitely battery connections. A near dead battery can sometimes start a car, but not keep all systems running. Also a loose battery cable can start a car, but while vibrating, cannot keep it running. When you turn key to "ON" or "RUN" position, you should hear a whine sound. That is fuel pump starting and priming your fuel system. Once you start it, you should continue to hear the whine - but very faintly. Check your fuel pressure regulator and fuel pressure at the fuel rail(s). All this pass? Then move to spark (ie. Ignition system) - for a short somewhere. Check for a large airflow blockage. Seen small animals crawl up inside the airbox and die and close off the airflow. You never know. Good luck.

Toyota 2c diesel pump problem


start the car leave it for a minute and when it goes to reduce revs and dying, pump the fuel filter and see whether is reving up. If so then the problem is on the fuel filter pump allowing air int he fuel system.

2001 chev suburban 5.3 gas, engine dies after you start it up. It acts like it is starving on fuel. Could it be fuel pump, fuel filter or what?


try reving it after you start, if it still chokes or sputters your right. if not check your battery guage. i'd try changing your filter first because its the cheapest option. you might want to consider flushing lines too. worse case you'll need a fuel pump sending unit.

My 2005 dodge ram starts but lacks power then when i turn off and start again it just dies


Look for the fuel pump or fuel filter to cause the problem. The lacking power and the engine dieing after starting is caused from lack of correct fuel pressure. Hope this will help you.

Vehicle starts cold but runs only for about 45 seconds, then dies. No reving just before it dies. Subsequent starts die immediately.


SOUND LIKE PROBLEM IS IN THE FUEL SYSTEM AND TIMING OFF.CHANGE FUEL FILTER HAVE FUEL PRESSURE CHECK.IT SHOULD RANGE FROM 34 - 40 PSI AND 53 - 59 PSI.SHOULD BE NO LOWER.IF FUEL PRESSURE GOOD.HAVE TIMING CHECKED.MAKE SURE PLUGS + WIRES GOOD ALSO CAP AND ROTOR.HAVE INJECTORS CLEANED.ALL THIS COULD CAUSE THE PROBLEM YOU HAVING.

Gmc 1995 serria 6.5 F turbo. put new fuel filter, changed oil, added lucas cleaner to fuel filter when I changed it... I used to hear when I turned the key to on the pump priming, I do not hear that...


Check fuel pressure, should be no less than 4 psi. The fuel transfer pump is located on frame rail under drivers door, If fuel pump is bad replace it. If that doesn't solve your problem, you may have a bad injection pump. Please rate

2004 chev 2500 duramax diesel no start and no fuel pressure


primay fuel pump is defective and won't allow the secondary pump to build pressure and causes it to die and has lack of power, most likely it started getting gutless before it happened.

1999 Regal GS Super charged, Starts,runs 3-5 sec and dies


i gaurantee that it is the fuel pump ressistor up on the passenger side front behind head lamp assembly you will find the connector with two wires going to it. no need to remove old one install new one and connect wires to new one leave old in. dealer only part but not expensive. dont belive dealer when they try to talk you out of it. This is a kit to relocate a ressistor that has been installed in a poor location. I promise this will fix it. My wifes car did the same thing, took 20 minutes to fix and that is only because i am an electrician and am finicky about where to locate wires etc. the kit comes with installation instructions however they are a little vague. trust me. easy fix. my dealer tried to get me to leave car for repair and said it sounds like the theft detterent system. they were wrong and i was right. dont trust em
