Make sure you put brand new fuel in it. Fuel that has been sitting for months or years is always a problem. If there is old fuel in in, siphon it out and start with brand new from the pump gas. Also, be sure that the spark plug wire is tight and that the air filter is not clogged with oil [ often the case when the generator gets turned while moving it.].

Finally, get a can of starter fluid and an assistant.. Squirt some starter fluid into the air intake area where the air filter is located, start it up and have your helper continue to spray starter fluid to keep it running till the regular gas takes over. Joe

Well the code means the computer detected a drop in RPM for that cylinder. The problem can be spark, fuel, or compression. If you think the cylinder is getting spark, the other two causes would need to be checked.

My 2002 gmc sonoma (extended cab sls) will not start i have changed plugs and wires fuel pump and fuel filter i have done oil change and air filter change. the truck will fire if i give it a spray off...


My engine light in my 2002 GMC Sonoma has been on for the past four weeks. Yesterday I had an oil change done on my truck with a local mechanic. He turned the engine light off, but it came on soon after leaving his shop.
This morning I went to start my truck and there was NO power whatsoever. After repeatedly turning the key, I soon saw a slight movement on the battery display, but no lights would come on. It just seemed like it wasn't getting any power. I changed the battery two years ago, so it should be fine.
Eventually, the truck received full power and started, more less out of no where. It wouldn't hold an idle and would just die if i took my foot off the gas.
Hopefully someone has a solution for me.
Thanks.

My ps3 was working fine four days ago. I took it to my brother-in-laws two nights ago and hooked it up. We played it on his tv with an xbox hdmi cord and it was fine. I took it home and plugged it up to...


Ok you must be using a a/v cable at your house? And the hdmi cable at your brother in laws? If this is the problem its not the xbox hdmi cable. It doesnt matter all hdmi cables work the same. Its your settings. You need to hold you power button down and it should come on and beep twice then release it and a settings menu should pop up if it doesnt hold the power button down until it comes on and shuts off then hold the power button down again until it beeps twice. Hope this helps.

Isuzu Hombre pickup, 2.2L Vortec, Won't Start.


You need four things for an engine to run. 1. fuel 2. spark 3. compression 4. timing (spark at the right time. By your post it seems you have fuel and spark and you probably have compression unless you blew a head gasket. That leaves the timing. Check the timing and/or the timing belt or chain whichever you have.
