SOURCE: engine starts then quits

does it have a fuel filter, or air? If it does make sure they are both clean and free of debris as priming will force fuel up line but will die as soon as its burned out

RUNS AND QUITS


You could try replacing the ignition coil. If it's failed, then it may run ok for a few seconds, but as it heats up it fails. Trying to start again immediately will be too soon for the coil to have cooled down. Leave it a few minutes to cool down and it will run again, but only for a few seconds again.
Hope that helps

I have a 93 K3500 with a 454. Truck was running fine, started no problem, ran great. Driving the other day, turn the corner and the engine quit. Cranked the engine, fired up for 2-3 seconds then quit, ...


Before starting the engine, the fuel pump should only run for a few seconds when the key is first turned, to pressurize the fuel system. Even though the pump appears to be running, you may either have not enough or too much pressure for the engine to keep running (fuel pump or pressure regulator). I think it may just be a coincidence the engine quit while turning a corner, but the gas in your tank may have been so low it sloshed away from what is likely a very old pump, starving it and causing it to failure.

It could be a number of things, bad fuel ( stale) engine over heating and causeing vapour lock, or a bad ignition unit, start with fresh fuel, replace the fuel filter in the tank, try just slackeing the fuel cap and try starting again, this will rule out the fuel tank breather, if still no better replace the ignition unit.

Rpm guage cuts out and car quits but starts right away all the time


Best thing to do is go to Auto Zone and have the care scanned for any DTC codes. Auto Zone scan free of charge and that way we might get to the problem right away. It could be your cam sensor or crank shaft sensor or both that may have gone bad. There are just to many sensors that can shut down the engine and getting the car scanned will eliminate replacing good parts. Good luck and keep me posted.

Engine quites


Next time the mower quits, immediately unscrew the gas cap and try to restart it. If it runs straight away without a cap, you've found the problem - a clogged gas cap vent.

Clean the vent and you'll be able to run with the gas cap in place.

Good luck !
