On the 2000 Bravada I have the "pleasure" of maintaining, I was recieving calls about 3x a week. It would crank over and not start.. and she would try this till the battery was dead. I would come jump it and it would be fine. Then it would crank over and start, but die right away, and do this 4 or 5 times before it would run. Does that sound like your problem?
The problem I found was the EGR valve was locking up. Once I replaced that it was all better, and purring like a kitten.

Good Luck

Starts but won't stay running


Turn off all your accesories and turn the key forward, but dont start it. You should hear the pump kick on for 2-3 seconds. Prime the system a few times then start it. This will narrow your diagnosis

Make sure it's getting fuel. Try using some ether or starting fluid. If it rumbles to life but doesn't stay running then there's a problem with the fuel delivery system. i.e.... Fuel pump, clogged filter, pressure regulator.... If the ether doesn't change the results you are getting now then it's a fire or sensor problem. Ignition coil, relays, sensors not signaling, PCM... I wish you luck. Let us know how it turns out

My Plymouth will not start right away. When you first turn ignition it just clicks. It soo start on 2nd or 3rd try but sometimes won't stay running unless you constanly push on gas. What could this be?


it could be a multitude of things from bad starter, loose or corroded cables,faulty cells,very dirty injectors, etc. You really need a mechanic to look at it or you could be throwing cash at non existent problems and completely missing the real one. Sorry.

Car won't keepidel1989 300e Car won't keep idel, starts up runs for a while but cutsoff


first ensure your spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor/coil packs are in good shape. once thats done check for a check engine light, sometimes they come on then go off but a code will be stored regardless. once you have made sure your getting good spark and there are no trouble codes the issue is most likely a dirty throttle body or fault IAC (idle air control) valve or throttle positioning sensor. hope this helps, good luck
