2000 Pontiac Montana LWB will not start when hot. Engine will crank, but will not fire or will fire but will stall out after 5 seconds. After a 10-15 min. cooling period, engine will start with no problem.( Fuel gauge reading are sometimes wrong when near empty, but still have this starting problem when fuel tank is still above 1/2). Not sure if it is electrical or mechanical. Any help on how to diagnose would be appreciated.
First with your incorrect fuel reading, you may need to have your fuel level sending unit replaced. Next if your vehicle otherwise runs fine when cold, no sputtering or hesitation if going uphill then I would suggest that your check your vehicle's ai ... 2000 Pontiac Montana

Car started and the check engine light came on. Had previously ran fine. Died backing out of drive but restarted easily. Died again at end of street. than about a half mile it acted as if it was running out of fuel. Died again when it went to an idle. has briefly started but acts as though it isnt getting fuel. Broke the line apart at the engine and it has great fuel pressure. It is getting fire, but seems as though the cylinders are flooded. Any help would be appreciated.
Read your code,my advice to you is to purchase a Chilton or equivalent service manual for your vehicle, all the necessary information to service most any problem can be found within the pages, these manuals can be obtained ... 1993 Audi S4

Hello, 2001 Dodge ram 5.2 2 wd automatic very hard starting after sitting a day or 2. Crank and crank and then it kinda fires then stumbles and finally starts. Runs rough till it warms up then runs fine. I can hear the fuel pump come on before I try to start it and it turns off after a few seconds. I had somebody turn the key on while I listened with the gas cap off and it is working. It seems to be worse after a rain but that is just a guess. Any help would be greatly appreciated. T

Recent extreme rain conditions have been in affect and my 2002 ford F-150 5.4L v8 2wd started mis-firing. Produced 2 codes P0303 misfire in cylinder #3 and P0316 advising either crank sensor faulty or misfire in (first 1,000) rpm of engine revolutions. Rain is gone and problem persists. All plugs, coils are about 8-9 mos old so I am doubting their failure.. Anybody who can help I would appreciate it.

2006 Dodge Charger will not start. I put the key in, turned the ignition, car started, and engine ran for a second or two, then shut itself off. I did this a few times hoping the engine would continue to run, but each time the engine would shut itelf off. Now, the car will not even start. I put the key in, turn the ignition, and get nothing. Electrical system seems to be fine. Lights, horn, radio all work fine. Maybe a sensor or fuel filter? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

While driving in cruise control my 2005 chevy equinox stopped accelerating. Once i realized this I turned off cruise control and tried the gas pedal with negative results. The car did cruised till I got to the shoulder. Once i was on the shoulder I turned off the engine and it would not start up after that. The engine starter works but the engine would not start. When this happened the "traction control light" came on Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, When I start my 1999 Prowler with a cold engine it fires right up with minimum cranking. But, as the engine warms up it becomes harder to start engine requiring much longer crank time and maybe a couple of trys to get engine to start. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks, Tom

Starting ruff I have a Nisan 1995 Quest GXE van. The van has had a full tune up but still starts ruff. You have to really hold the key in the start position and and hit the gas to get the engine to fire up! At that point you usually will smell gas as well. This has been happening for quite some time. If the engine is cold this is worse. But it will ALWAYS still start ruff even if the van has been running for a while. Would replacing the fuel filter help?! So far I have replaced the spa
I'm leaning toward a bad sensor, as in throttle body temperature, or coolant temperature sensor. The smell of too much fuel is probably from pushing pedal to start, which shouldn't be necessary on a fuel injected vehicle. What does it do if you leave ... 1995 Nissan Quest
The engine is still running strong. after the engine warms up, it feels like its not getting any gas when i open up the throttle, and then the engine dies out. after that i tried to start it again, it would start up and idle really low. i press on the gas and it dies out again. a friend said it might be the idle air controller. i appreciate the help and time. thank you very much.

I have a 2005 camry with a check engine light on, a dtc of PO328 for the knock sensor, sometimes runs rough at idle shortly after starting and wouldn't shift into overdrive going 55mph. I recently changed the spark plugs since the car just rolled over 100k, I check the plugs and found one of them loose, retorqued all of them, cleared the dtc, started the engine and the check engine light comes back on.

I went to start my car today. The car started fine, but then a light saying "airbag fault" came on. I went to put the car in reverse and back out of my driveway, and the gear shifter would not move. But it moved when I put the engine off? Eventually it worked and I was able to drive it. But I am worried it might happen again?Would an airbag fault keep me from putting the car into gear? The vehicle is a 2003 VW Golf. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a 1996 volvo 850 station wagon and up until two days ago it worked perfectly for the past year. Now, however, when i start the engine it cuts out by itself after only a few seconds, and only won't cut out if i am revving the car. Also, an emergency light appears when i start the engine, the manual describes this problem as either a fuel or ignition system fault though doesn't offer anymore information. Any help would be greatly appreciated
Yes, it sounds like it is a fuel problem, whether it be the fuel pump, or more probably the catalytic converter. That check engine light can be checked by a mechanic where they can hook up to the engine and get the true error code to know why the lig ... 1996 Volvo 850
