Is your car one that uses a Mass Airflow sensor? if it is you more than likely have a cracked air tube. This is the tube that comes off the air filter box and mounts to the throttle body.

My nissan murano wont start after oil change


Sounds like it could be a fuel pressure problem so i would check the pressure to see if its within the specs first and go from there.

1990 lumina will not stay running...is hard to start but when does it will not stay running ..dies out within 30 seconds ..had been stauling out at lights and such for a few weeks but now is worse.


check/change the fuel filter, and check the fuel pump. Be careful, the fuel will run out, sometimes under pressure. I suggest eye protection, Test it by disconnecting the fuel line on the tank side, then have someone turn key to on position (not all the way to start) there should be a short burst of fuel,. That is the prime, then turn key to start and the fuel should be pumped out steadily. If you get these results, pump is good, replace filter.

I AM RESTORING A T020 MF. I REPLACED ALL WIRING AND IGNITION SYSTEM AND REBUILT THE CARBURATOR, AND ADJUSTED IT TO SPECS. I GOT IT TO START RIGHT AWAY AND IT SOUNDS GREAT. HOWEVER, IT WILL ONLY RUN FOR...


Ok a quick check. When the engine cuts out and you go for restart it dies within 5 seconds. Next time put the ignition at position 2 (on but not starting) and wait one minute, then start the car. If the engine again runs for 30 seconds before cutting off this tells you its is a fuel problem. If the fuel is supplied slowly it fills the carburettor fuel bowls and when the car starts it quickly uses up these local reservoirs of fuel faster than they can be replenished. When you try to restart immediately there is only a tiny amount of fuel and so it used up almost immediately. By leaving the ignition on 2 for while it gives the pump time to fill the carburettor bowls and this takes a while longer to run down when the engine starts. Just before moving on does the car have a choke OK remove the low tension connection to the coil, basically remove any chance of a spark. Put a big old towel around the carb. Now remove the fuel line at the carburettor and put ignition on 2 to engage the starter pump. Listen to pump operation and look at the rate of fuel being pushed from the disconnected fuel pipe. If the flow is slow check on pump and filters.

Cars starts and dies five seconds later


try changing the fuel filter. with that many miles on it could be clogged. most people forget all about the fuel filter which is typically on the passenger side on the frame rail near the tire well.

1 Answer

Starting


Yes, it sound like a fuel problem. It's a 5 speed, have you tried push starting it? Try that and if it starts but within 20-120 seconds dies than you have a bad fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter. The filter would be seen as you were to let the car sit for an hour or so and try starting it. It would run and again shortly after die. You may have to bring it to a garage. Good luck.

1991 Mazda MX-6 starts and it dies within 30 seconds or less.


Check to see fi your fuel pump is functioning, also change the fuel filter. I had this same problem on a 1984 626. While i waited for the car to restart fuel would seep into the line to allow for the enging to startbe that was it.
