Pressure guage should stay after you turn-off the ignition switch. check also if your engine has a cold start injector. it may be restricted.

Be sure you scroll down to the ones for all engines. The top few are for 2.4 Liters only. It is an in tank fuel pump and you'll have to drop the tank to install.

Hey have you tried disconnecting and re connecting the battery? my mitsi carisma startd doing that so i rang up dealer and aparently they do it when the computer thinks there is something wrong with the engine, so it enters slow mode (or turtle mode or something) so that minimal damage is done while you drive it slowly to yr mechanic. Could be complettly wrong tho. Good luck.

My car will not start

Did you replace the fuel pressure regulator?
More Information for STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS PR186 Hard starting can be caused by a failing pressure regulator, and being able to start the car by putting fuel into the intake would be an indicator that you have a fuel delivery problem.

My 2003 accent won't start on cold weather. I pressed the gas pedal and smells gas, so it is not a gas problem. But when it start it runs smoothly. What seems to be the problem?

when was the last time you changed the plugs? if its been a little too long the plug gap will become too big of a gap and harder for the spark to jump but once the motor is running it will more compession and also the heat of the combustion chamber to help and will run smooth...checking the plugs will be a good start

You probably have a bad head gasket.
To verify this see if the coolant is milky or if there is oil in the coolant reservoir. If so you need a new head gasket . If not you have an oil leak into the combustion chamber.

Approx cost for head gasket w/head cut approx $1500 to$ 2000.

If it turns out to be an oil leak into combustion chamber I really can't project . Need to know whats leaking and why.
Good luck

I have a 1999 gmc Yukon it is getting fuel and spark i even sprayed starter fluid in the intake but it still wont start it turns over good but wont start

ok make sure you have good fuel pressure
you must have good spark must fire a spark tester
if all that is good then check compression
and don't use STARTER FLUID on a GAS ENGINE it can blow a hole through the piston
hope this helps

Car hard to restart after engine is warm

It's possible you have a carbon build up problem. When you try and start the car after the engine is warm, the fuel from the injectors is absorbed the the carbon on the intake valves and combustion chamber creating a "lean fuel" condition.
Try a couple of tank fulls of "Combustion Chamber Cleaner". I prefer the Chevron brand in the black bottle. It is a little more expensive than most but is very good at cleaning the injectors and combustion chamber.
Give it a try and let me know.

Sounds to me like you have a fuel issue. Try replacing the fuel filter and run a good injector cleaner through the motor with a couple of tanks of high octane gas. The service engine light can easily be tripped by weak detonation in the combustion chamber, causing very poor performance as well. Good place to begin before you start dumping $$ trying to figure out whats wrong.
