Dying, not starting after it's been warmed up. Runs beautiful on cold engine. Replaced plugs, wire, cap, rotor and crank position sensor, no luck.


Your car cold start valve puts more gas into the system keeping your engine running higher RPM. When you car warms up, the cold start valve will stop working and your car RPM will drop. What you could have is a vacuum hose disconnected which puts more air into your engine - therefore when you press on the gas pedal, your engine would shut off or you find lack of power and then shut off.

It is shot. Hit the bottom of the tank. It will jar the pump and will start or not. Either way replace the pump. Running older cars out of gas usually kills the pump.

Can't put gas in my 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix


I doubt it.
Usually the problem is a blockage in the fill tube, sometimes the vent for the tank is not working. But there are several components to the EVAP system.
I would check the filler tube first.

Ive got an 1988 corvette sometimes it takes 3-7 tries to start whether cold or warm and other times it starts fine and has also stalled out while driving down road


Sounds like it could be a fuel pump or a fuel pressure regulator depending on the engine you have. Usually when it takes more than a second or two of turning it over before it will start means the fuel is going back down the line when not running. This can be because of a leak, not fuel leaking out but air leaking in, the fuel system or it can be as easy and a gas cap not properly venting/letting air into the tank as the tank empties. If it doesn"t let air in the tank, then the fuel that is being pumped out is creating a vaccum and sucking the fuel back into the tank when you shut the car off. Try opening the gas cap and letting some air get in just before you shut the car off. Then if it fires right up next time you know you need to replace the gas cap. If not check for vaccum leaks around the intake. Good luck.

SC2 car cranks and starts sometimes.put new plugs and wires and noticed oil on the 3 and 4 plug. Car once started with some starting flluid runs fine. and will restart. weather is getting cooler 20 degrees...


A common problem with the 90's engines was the ECTS (electronic coolant temperature sensor) going bad. Seems when attempting to start the car, the computer in the car will only allow enough gas it thinks is needed to start. When a car is cold, the computer gives more gas initially, until the engine warms up, then gives less gas. When starting a warm engine, less gas is needed.

If the sensor goes bad, it always tells the computer that the engine is hot. The computer give less gas to a cold engine, and sometimes it will start, sometimes not. Its a pretty cheap part, and a do it yourself one, just research it a bit on line...good luck

Sometimes my 2000 chevy blazer will not start. If I hit the gas tank while it is being started it will sometimes start. I am wondering if this is a fuel pump problem or a fuel filter problem. It never...


Usually that is a bad fuel pump. Filter is not on the tank. Test it when it doesn't start, or listen, as when you first turn the key to "run", you should hear the fuel pump cycle.
