Answers :

If the oil pressure sensor is defective and or fails to have oil pressure, it is a failsafe for engine protection. Try this: If the oil pressure gage or light show that oil pressure is present, but it will not crank, then open the fuel line at the throttle body a slight amount, ie. two flats then turn the key and starter just a wee tap or two and have some one watch the fitting for fuel pressure flow. If it leaks as it should, then you have your fuel pump working, however, if still no fuel then you must ck the inline filter under the frame. It could be completely clogged, there again, you could loosen the tank side of the filter and hit the key again and watch for leaks only if you don't get it at the throttle body. If you don't get any pressure leaks (you will get gravity leak on the tankside of the fuel filter) ie, squirting out, then you will likely have to replace the intank fuel pump. '
good luck

My 2003 Suburban takes two cranks to start the engine. However, if its colder and I turn the key to the first position and hold it for 5 seconds it will usually start on the first crank? Do you know what is wrong?


This is more than likely related to the electric fuel pump or something downstream in the fuel system. turning the key on and wating a few seconds before starting allows the pump to pressurize the system. Might also be a bad fuel filter, but the ke ... 2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500

I changed the starter on my 1996 4x4 1/2 ton 5.7 Chev Suburban. The vehicle starts fine and sounds normal while cranking over. While in park it idles with no problems. I can rev the engine with no problems. Once I start driving and try to accelerate even moderately, I can hear grinding. If I accelerate easily, it doesn't do it. I assume it is the flywheel but I can't figure out what it is grinding on and why it is doing it. I have taken the starter off and put it back on several times and the pr

You see fuel coming out of the injectors or you have fuel pressure? ... Cars & Trucks

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Suburban 1500, 350 V8, automatic. The engine cranks, starts and then immediately dies. Fuel pressure is low (about 50 psi) and decreases slowly after engine stops. Have already replaced the fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator. Could this be caused by faulty fuel injectors in the fuel meter body?

Hard Starting I have a 1989 Ford F 450 Super Duty 7.3 L DSL. The engine will not start when cranking after it is has sat for a while and the engine is cold. However, if you shoot three shots of engine starting fluid before cranking, it will then start. I am waiting for the glow plug liht to go off, indicating that the plugs are hot. I will not start on it's own, it always requires a couple shots of engine starting fluid. What can be the problem? I am not that familar with Diesel engines, If anyo


First thing i would check is if your glow plugs are actually any good. next i would check your injectors, then the injector pump make sure it's got the needed pressure. change the fuel filter and reprime the system. if the problem still occurs then l ... 1999 Ford Super Duty F 450

Sounds like the check valve in the fuel pump has failed. You would need to have the fuel pressure checked before and after cranking the engine to verify. The check valve keeps the fuel pressure from draining back into the tank when the engine i ... Hyundai Accent

I'm having an intermittent problem with my 07 Cadillac CTS. Car will crank but won't fire up and start. After 7-8 tries, it starts and runs perfect. Dealer claims they can't find the problem when in for service. Also, when attempting this start, I can turn the key forward to the start position, let go of it, and it will stay in the start position with the engine continuing to crank without starting. I have to manually turn the key backwards to stop the engine from continuing to crank.

Cranking the car I have to press the gas for it to start. In addition, once it is cranked I have to keep the gas pedal pressed sightly to keep the engine running. To be able to drive it I have to use both feet, one for gas and one for brake. Once I am going down the road and make a stop (red light or stop sign), it gets suggish but does not die. Only when I put the car back in park and kill the engine and try to crank the engine, will it start the dying when cranked.
