Question about 1991 Chevrolet Caprice

1 Answer

I washed the engine bay in my 1995 HOLDEN VS 5.0ltr Caprice and now it won't start.At first it just turned over,then it fired a few times,and now it won't fire at all.It has good spark,and I have tried the ignition module,rotor button and distributer cap in my VN and it runs fine.The fault code reads 12 (no fault). I think it must be a fuel delivery problem.Does anyone have any ideas?

    I had the same problem i got a under body wash (never do again) car rod fine till i got it home. i check a bunch of stuff fuel pump, fuel fliter, made sure gas was coming into the motor. i even had a spark. Come to find out i had to do a complete rotor and cap plus all new spark plugs and wires that fixed the problem. Make sure your distributor vent hoses are all hooked up to the distributor as well u dont want water to get in there. if you never did this job before get a hynes auto book for the car made the job that much easier.

1996 holden vs v6 acclaim, my car won't start

This is an indication that the fuel system is losing prime. It might be because the injectors are not sealing when the engine is off and the gasoline is syphoning back to the tank.

1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic won't start after

Sounds a lot like an overheated engine. The electric cooling fan should run after turning off the ignition when it is hot if this is like most vehicles and prevents heat buildup in fuel lines.
Try flooring the gas pedal and leave it there while you crank the engine. This will prevent flooding the engine with fuel and give the engine a leaner mix to start.
