  • jeffstuppy Oct 06, 2008

    It will start and run a few seconds and die. It may do this several times then start up and run fine.

I just went thru a similar problem. When I changed my fuel filter the problem stopped. I can't say that it is the exact solution for your problem. But it is a cheap fix if it is. You can remove the old one and tell before you buy a new one. The filter is located in fron of the gas tank. It comes off easily. If its clogged then replace it. ( I recommend replacing it evey year anyways). There are a few other possible problems that it could be. I hope this helps

Hay varias formas por las que no arranca
Puede ser un problema con la bateria que esta mal conectadas necesita un cambio bujias o un cable de las bujias esta mal conectado.
que el auto ande con poca gasolina por un tiempo y despues le pongas provoca que en la linea de gasolina keden burbujas que hacen que no adquieran gasolina los inyectores. y por eso no funciona asi que cuando lo arranques tienes que acelerale a fondo para que coorra mas rapido la gasolina

Security Light comes on and then car won't start a day or two later unless I leave the key in the start position for 10 minutes


Most times, the ignition switch is the problem. After installing the replacement, you will need to leave the key in the run position for ten minutes the first time. Shouldn't have to do it again.

1995 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX RUNS, SPUTTERS THEN STALLS WHILE IDLE AND when operating the vehicle


Same problem. 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix V6 3.1L no start problem Question The problem, my car runs great first start of the day but does have a miss fire, and I can drive for hours without a problem, but when I turn it off and try to start again 30 -60 minutes later it chuggles and dies and won't start for a least 3-5 hours later, then runs fine again. It trys to turn over and the battery does not drag, no signs of a bad alternator. Everything has power, all fuses are ok I checked them today. Second trip to repair shop resulted in no 3 fuel injector replaced with good results. Fuel pressure checked out ok, No smoking white or black, fuel filter replace and car had a tune up recently also the mass air flow was replaced supposedly, I am starting to wonder if these parts were actually new used or not put in at all but I am charged anyway this is fourth time to the repair shop however now the third time but this is at no charge by a church member's friend so I am inclined to take his advice and think it is the engine module. Three different auto repair garages tell me the following: either the cam shaft sensor, crank shaft sensor, or ignition module, causing no start or start and chuggle and die problem and bad & loose hoses sucking in air. (From my experience engines don't take in air they leak it out through vacuum leaks.) Apparently the last fix resulted in hand made manifold gaskets I did not know about and may also be causing contamination on my low coolant sensor cause it stays on, however back to the no start problem; my engine is getting to much air I am told, I am incline to think there is a vacuum hose leak somewhere instead. Was also told intake manifold gaskets may have a air leak, bad and loose hoses and possibly the sensor's I mentioned. So before I shove out money I don't have, I am doing some homework and found your site. What do you think is going on. Someone else said I do not have a crank shaft sensor. So I don't know whom to believe.

Stalling. starts 15 minutes later. runs good for a week.


O.M.G. THE BATTERY SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT 80-95 BUCKS. AND THE TERMINAL IS ABOUT 5 BUCKS TO BUY. TAKE THE CAR TO AN AUTO PARTS STORE THAT CHECKS THE ENGINE CODES FOR FREE.......MAKE SURE THAT THEY CAN CHECK FOR PENDING CODES AS WELL. IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE A CRANK SENSOR. OH AND BY THE WAY, MOST AUTO PARTS STORES WILL INSTALL A BATTERY THAT YOU PURCHASE AT THEIR STORE FOR FREEEEEEEEEEEEE.!!!!!!!!!!!!..... PLEASE FIND A BETTER MECHANIC. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. BEST OF LUCK. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED, CAUSE I AM REALLY CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT YOU FIND.

You might want to start by replacing the crank sensor first.

Signal indicator brake lights and fm radio


You may have an intermittent switch or possibly a shorted or broken wire. As for the radio, I'd yank it and put an after market deck in. GM radios aren't known for their quality. But, you could check the back of the radio to see if the antenna lead is plugged in securely.
Hope this helps.
