Trouble starting & dies soon after starting

It is now in the shop for the 3rd time in 2 wks. Have trouble starting and then once running, will go a few hundred yards and it will die. Sometimes it starts fine & then dies later. Week ago, it started fine, got about 1/2 mile & it died & would not restart. The dealer has updated computer program & put 2 new batteries. Ran OK for a few days after new battery, but now having same problem again. Their diagnostics doesn't show anything. Anyone else with same problem?? any ideas on what it may be??

What about the fuel filter in the frame? Did the Ford mechanic check it?
Is a diesel? If that is the case, it could be the electric cellanoid switch in the injector pump. But usually it would start and stop it would just shut down with that.

Could be some internal carb problems. Especially if the carb is original, or if it is a rebuilt off the shelf. The internal parts can get old and stop working, such as the accelerator pump.

2004 gmc sonoma why does it take 2-3 times cranking before it starts and only does it sometimes?

install pressure gauge and watch when key is turned off to see if pressure drops to zero if so bad drain back valve in fuel pump replace it or deal with it or could be cheap aftermarket pump and has hard time building unnecessary pressure to open poppet valves between before fuel injectors

first, there is no trouble code for the ignition switch that would show, exspecially if it is just a sparatic happening, i suggest getting the ignition replaced, you will get new keys and every thing with the new ignition set, this is the more likely cause of the problem.

Having Trouble Starting up G37

You need a battery. That gauge on the dash is for the alternator not the battery. If you take it to a Nissan/Infinity dealer or for that matter any shop with a good battery/starter/charging tester you will know for sure but most likely its just a bad battery.

Having Trouble Starting up G37

For about 2 wks ive had some trouble starting my Infiniti G37. every once and a while when i start up my truck it had some trouble but it would eventually start. it would only take me about once or twice to start it. i thought it was a cold engine problem. but now the ****** wont even start at all. all i can hear is the clicking noise. i know its not the battery cause it shows it is pretty well charged on the instrument panel window when my truck is actually running. so not being much of a gearhead can anyone help me out. is it something i can fix without getting any parts? or am i doomed to being a whole new starter. btw it started today with the help of jumper cables. but like i said i dont think its the battery but i can be wrong.
