Check fuel pressure see if it is within the specs.Sounds like it might be a weak fuel pump.

Cold start low ideling


You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

Security light is on and the key can turn the iginition on however the engine wont turn over. Is there a way to reset the security so the car can start and be driven to a repair shop.


disconect the possitive wire on your battery, reconect then try to start the car three times....on the third try leave the key in the on possition for 20 to 30 minutes then start it up. engine will run ruffly and want to stall just keep giving it gas lightly and drive it to shop.

You can NOT check ATF when the engine is off. It must be running. If the ATF is dark, brown, or smells burned, then you need to change it, but it is probably too late. When you turn the engine off, the fluid in the torque converter drains back and gives a reading much higher than real.

I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy. Cranks, but won`t start. Fuel is full. Engine stopped while driving. Battery light came on. Any suggestions?


the battery indicator light usually comes on after a lose of power. Sounds to me like either bad gas, clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. Easiest way to check this is have someone turn the key while you stand at rear side of vehicle and listen for the whinning noise a functioning fuel pump makes as it pressurizes the system.

P.S you dont have to start vehicle to check pump. only requires turning the key to the on position. Good Luck

Old aurora 1995 stalls out and chokes then turns on ]


in the morning before you start your car take the gas cap off slowly and listen for pressure escaping... if it does that means your fuel pump is probably good. Also in a quiet parking spot, doors closed, driver window down,seatbelt on, stick the key in turn to half way and listen very closely and you should hear a whinning noise before you turn the key to the full start position...you should hear a whining sound ever so slightly of you fuel pump priming the pressure in the tank...if it does this then its working also.

check airflo sensor or potentometer,throttle pos sensor; if revs are to low when turning the wheel the power steering pump will draw power from engine, causing your other problems
