Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!

Tip

How to inspect a used car like a PROFESSIONAL in under 30 minutes


Copyright © by MUSTGO 2010

If you are in the market for a used car then this is a great 30 minutes inspection guide on how to inspect a car,truck,SUV or van from bumper to bumper.

I will append more tips and time saving inspection HOW TO's on this page so PLEASE bookmark my articles.

Do not forget to give me a positive rating if this guide is helpful to you.

============================================

1)Make the test drive appointment with the seller in the EARLY MORNING hour. Inspect the car when it is COMPLETELY cold.

Cold engine will ran rough during the closed loop cycle (warm up phase). This is the best time to inspect for worn motor and transmission mounts.

============================================

2) RECORD color of all fluid on the vehicle.

DO NOT ASSUME

motor oil is clear to black
transmission fluid is lite pink to dark red
coolant is green or orange for GM Dexcool

Dip a small sample of the fluids on a WHITE printer paper and compare it to any drip on the ground after 15 minutes of warm up time.

============================================

3)Look for oil leak(s) under the car after 15+ minutes of warm up time.

Front seal is inches below the harmonic balancer (center of the pulley system on the crank)

Rear main seal is no visible from the outside (It is where the engine meet the transmission casing)

Front seal and rear seal leak(s) can set you back hundreds on labor.
Some seller will tell you the rubber seal only cost $12 or less (which is true) but the labor is at $90+ per hour.

A top notch professional auto repair shop can complete the job on a rear wheel drive vehicle in under 1 1/2 hours (front and rear seals).

Front wheel drive vehicle is a 2+ hours job.

Once again DO NOT ASSUME

Lite brown to black fluid is motor oil

Pink to dark red is transmission fluid

Compare the fluid on the white printer paper so you will have a good idea on which fluid is leaking.

A manual transmission clutch system can be destroy by only few ounce of motor oil seepage from the rear main seal.

An average clutch job is over $260!!!!

============================================

4)Inspect the color of the exhaust smoke at initial startup.

Few minutes of lite blue or black smoke is OK for high mileage vehicle.
(75,000+ miles)

BLUE smoke is a sign of worn oil seal on the engine head. It SHOULD be clear out after 2-5 minutes of warm up time.

BLACK smoke is a sign of engine is running rich.
You should monitor the smoke level. It should reduce to an acceptable level after warm up 5-10 minutes.

lite WHITE smoke is OK until 10 minutes of warm up time.
If there is WHITE smoke after 15 minutes of warm up time then you should do a coolant compression test to make sure the head gasket able to blown.

=========================================

5)Look for miss-match tires

This is a sign for low budget owner or car flipper.

======================================

6)After 15+ minutes of warm up time then take the vehicle for local and highway ran.

Test the car on a hilly road to listen for dieseling (ping) sound from the engine.

WORN engine will produce louder dieseling sound.

A totally worn engine will also vibrate a lot more.
You have to factor is worn motor and transmission mount.

Have your friend drive a second vehicle right behind you to look for color of the smoke during the test drive during the test drive.

=========================================

7)On 1996+ vehicle,look for Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light.

MAKE SURE this lamp does light for few second during initial startup.

If there is code stored in the computer then you will need an OBDII code reader to pull the codes.

=========================================

8)READ the state emission report carefully!

HC
CO
CO2
O2
NOx

Look for the upper limit parameters and compare to the RECORDED TEST RESULTS.

======================================

9)Check for pull on suspension noise during test drive,

Do the re-bound shock test on all four shocks.

======================================

10) Inspect for damaged or replaced radiator support or hood.

Heavy frontal collision can cause frame damage.

Uni-body vehicle may not show frame damage with visual inspection.

Avoid car that has combination of frontal AND roof damage.

======================================

Check Kelly Blue Book for private seller value and Carfax before making the offer.

======================================

Good luck on your vehicle search and please email me if you have any question or comment on how to improve this inspection article.

Have a 99 Frontier 3.3. Started running real rough, bucking and jerking. Didn't idle. Hard to start when warm.


I have seen a few crank sensors do this. When I pulled them, they had a small crack in them. Don't know where yours is. But guessing under the harmonic balancer.

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...


Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949
