Hi, my 95 town car would start fine when cold but after it had run for awhile it might or might not start. After supporting Ford for awhile it was found that a relay switch to the Power train control module was bad. This is located under the hood and the heat from the engine will sometimes cause it to overheat and not allow the engine to start until it had cooled off. I once had to wait four hours. The part cost approx. 7-9 dollars. The problem was only found when the car would not start when at the Ford garage.

Car doesn't start. no spark or fuel

If indeed there's no spark or fuel, first rule out the easy fixes: be sure there's gas in the tank; if there is, see if it's getting to the fuel injectors.
If the battery is charged, does the motor turn over when your turn the ignition key?
There is a long list of causes for what appears to be two problems occurring in tandem. I'd strongly suggest to take your vehicle to a reputable mechanic and save yourself loads of time, frustration, and probably $$$.
Best of luck!

I turn the key and dont do eniting ,after 3-4 times she star

If you mean that you turn the key to start but the starter motor doesn't engage the flywheel until the key is turned to start several times, try this. Look under the front of the car and locate the starter motor, which will be at the front of the oil pan. Tap the end of the starter motor with the handle of a large screwdriver a couple of times. If the starter then engages, the starter motor is bad. What happened to the last 99 Caravan (w/175,000 miles) was that a large amount of oily gunk had made its way into the part of the starter that housed the motor brush ***'y, preventing the motor brushes from moving freely and keeping one or more of them from making contact with the armature. The fix was to spray cleaner into the unit. That freed up the brushes and allowed the starter to work. That was a year ago. If you mean that the motor turns over, but doesn't start until you have tried 3 or for times, then I suspect a fuel problem. I have seen a problem where the fuel drains out of the fuel line when the car is off so that repeatedly turning the key to start runs the fuel pump which must refill the fuel line before it can reach the engine. Check the fuel pump, the fuel pump relay, etc. Or, locate the fuel pump relay, under the hood, on the driver side fender. Carefully remove the relay and remove the black plastic cover by lifting the two tabs. Carefully reinsert the relay, sans cover, and have an assistant turn on the key. If the contact "pulls in" then have your assistant remove the gas cap and listen as you manually close the contact with your finger. ( It's okay, the 12 volts won't shock you!) If they can hear a whirring sound, then the pump is working. Have someone start the car while you keep the relay engaged. Hope this helps. Dano

Vehicle starts runs for 2 seconds then shuts off 2006 santa fe 4 cyl standard, not the battery started multiple times and shuts off after 2 seconds every time what is it?

Possibly a weak or dead fuel pump. Try disconnecting the fuel line where it enters the fuel rail ( the metal tube that the injectors are attached to.) Have someone turn the key to the "RUN" position, (not "START") a few times and observe the fuel flow. If it appears weak, then you probably have a bad pump. Be sure to capture the fuel that spills out and DO NOT attempt this while the engine is hot. Altenatetively, you can have someone turn the key "ON" and off a few times while you listen for the humming sound of the pump at the fuel tank. But just because you can hear a humming sound doesn't always mean the pump is operating to capacity. If this doesn't help, reply bvack and we can go from there. Good luck!

I was driving to work and the motor just died instantly,im a store manger at grease monkey so im somewhat car savy.the lights, radio, still work and it turns as though it wants to start. but when uhit the...

when cranking does it turn over smoothly or kind of lumpy? How many miles on it and has it ever had timing belt? You can test fuel pump, disconnect fuel hose in engine compartment and have someone turn key to on see if fuel comes out of line - that'll answer if pumps bad.

I have a 1994 Toyota Celica, lately when im in neutral the rpms begin to drop and when i give it gas the car stalls out or it stays under 2 rpms after second gear.

Look and listen for vacuum leak Free,Change air filter $15, change fuel filter$20, replace fuel pump$300.
With motor running and your head under hood listen for hissing sound. Then start replaceing filters first air filter , then fuel filter. Check fuel pump by listening for humming noise at gas cap when you first move key in ignition to on (when the red lights go on). Have someone listen for you at the gas cap.(NO hum need pump)
