Question about Lotus Esprit V8

1 Answer

2003 Esprit turns over ...will not start .?.

I ran into a friends house and left my 2003 Esprit running......10 minutes later i walk outside to leave, and, the car is off ( not running ). Now it will not start. It turns over, but, acts like its out of gas. Had it towed home and decided to try starting....it fired up for a second and shut off again. Fuel pump? Some sort of relay? .....not sure whee to look first.

First you got to figure out if it is fuel or electrical. spray a little starting fluid into the intake andtry to fire it up, if it starts for a few seconds it a fuel issue, if it does it may be a electrical problem. Fuel issues range in fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel rpessure regulator and so on, elctrical issus revolve around spark plugs and coils and such

Have 2003 Yamaha Gas Golf Cart. was running, but will not start again.


Fuel line; filter... calcium build-up can cause this issue. It sounds like there may also be a loose connection via the wire chassis.

2003 Aurora, left key on and battery went dead. Recharged battery. Won't start. Turn key to on, security light out and check engine light on. Move key to start and nothing, back to on, one minut


Very interesting site here.. regarding your problem. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
Another thought.. even though you charged the battery, it's not at all uncommon for a car battery to be very damaged by fully discharging. Especially if not new-ish. One or more cells in it may be bad causing the overall voltage to be under normal. This alone can cause the problem you have. I would try jumping it with another car or test the battery to see if it's got at least 12.7 to 12.9 volts when sitting doing nothing. Good luck.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
