Hi, the engine needs three basic things, spark, fuel and compression. If your missing one of those it will not start. Several possibilities come to mind:

  • no gas in the tank or blocked fuel filter
  • bad or missing spark plugs and/or plug wires
  • engine timing
  • broken/slipping timing belt
The engine warning light means that there is a fault stored in the computer memory that needs to be identified and fixed. Have the code OBD-II reader or take it to any Auto zone to have the car scanned free. A code will be retrieved and interpreted to determine the main problem with the car that made the engine warning light came up...

I have a magna 1997 when it is hot and i turn it off it will not start again a


That is a TE magna 3rd gen either a 3 .3,5 ltr motor .. . I take it it will crank over ok so either fuel or spark
Is this an Auto , triptronic or manual box ?..is it running on gas ? .These no starting problems require a scanner to sort out if intermittent or unresolved ... . for now try these basic things .
For Fuel .check if the fuel filter has been changed and the fuel pump is working when hot There is a pressure regulator on the fuel rail . injectors cleaned ? For Spark -dissy. coil ..exciter. leads .plugs any of these can fail when hot .. I am in several Magna forums so should be able to sort this

Te magna fuel pump or relay??


Sometimes your key will magically lose communication with the ignition you can take your car to a dealer and they can reprogram for about $60 regulators are pretty cheap starting about$13
i would try that first very much doubt it's the fuel pump
but you can check this just by turning you key to acc and you will hear the pump kick in to bring fuel up to the rails and cut out .

1996 jeep wont stay started and oil pressure gauge goes up and down


hot or cold engine , or both.?
the oil pressure will be in direct ratio to engine rpm. slow low, fast high
due to the oil pump connection to engine crankshaft.

stalls.: can be caused by 50 things, or just 4 in physics.
the EGR valve (if you have one, no engine stated)
can stick open and stall any engine, and in fact LOVES to. clean it.
1: list 12vdc to EFI. (spark and fuel brain) dash lights dim?
2: lost compression hot, ? compression tests.
3: lost spark, do spark tests. and timing, checks.
4: bad fueling, too much if floods, and misfires and stalls.
too little fuel, it starves and dies.

the 1 free test, is can you save the stall with a fast right foot.

we do the tests. avoiding those 50 guesses....
each tests are simple and the tools dirt cheap .

My 1996 VF 750 C Magna starts fine with the choke open. After a minute or so as I reduce the choke and try to open the throttle, the engine just stalls out. Cannot seem to get the throttle to control


I think you are mixed up. The choke is usually closed to start a cold engine and opened once the motor warms up. The choke is closed to restrict the air flow and make the mixture richer in fuel. You can't open a choke that's already open. It's stalling because it's starved of fuel. Either a blockage or the fuel pump is not supplying enough gas.

I have a 97 blazer and i changed the fuel filter and i can hear the fuel pump turn on but it still wont stay started. i also put some fuel in the carb and it started for about 5 seconds and then it wont...


I would more likely think that the fuel pump is the problem. The regulator bring the pressure down, so the vehicle would run, just rich. Disconnect fuel feed line to see if fuel is reaching the engine. If not the pump is the problem.
