My 1999 dodge intepid all of a sudden quit starting easily. The starter now has to turn over several times before the car will start. Friends said that it could be the fuel pump letting gas flow back into the gas tank when the car is turned off. I tried turning on the key and waiting several seconds before turning on the starter while holding down the gas pedal a small bit. It seems that sometimes this works and sometimes not. Do you have any ideas?

2000 S10 Blazer won't start. It started out by not down shifting when you floor the accelerator pedal. The engine occasionally didn't want to start up right away. But would start on the second or third try. Now it won't start at all. I changed the sparkplugs. And I have spark, as I used a hei test spark plug tester.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Aslo, does anyone know w

This has been an ongoing issue for the last 2-3 years now. First the car would all of a sudden not start. We'd wait 10-15 minutes then try again and it would start. It began happening more frequently. We had a new key made thinking the old one was too worn. The problem went away for about 2 years. Recently the car would not start at all. It would turn over, but not start. The fuel pump has been replaced (it was replaced when these issues first started 3 years ago). The security light fla

Fuel pump runs constantly with key on engine off. pulled fuel pump relay and fp fuse on firewall and pump still runs and engine will run. pulled guage fuse in dash and pump quits. reconnect fuel pump fuse and relay with gauge fuse out and pump turns on for 5-7 seconds with key on and starts and runs. turn key off and fuel pump runs for 10-15 seconds. any thoughts on a back feed through guage fuse?


Gauge fuse runs a fuel module that is installed to correct vapor lock. This module is what is running the pump. This module, called the hot fuel module is mounted on the passenger side behind the dash above the blower motor. ... 1989 Chevrolet K3500

My ford F250 7.5 gas has a issue with the a sensor possibly. The fuel pump use to pressurize 2-4 seconds after turning the key but now the pump wont pressurize and the truck wont start easy. When you finally start the truck it dumps black smoke out of the exaust like its running way to rich. I ran a diagnostic on it from autozone and it flatlined and would not throw a code. I bought a temp sensor on a hunch but no luck.. any guesses . Thanks

The car starts but then bogs out and dies after a few seconds. I loose fuel pressure during that time until the car dies. The pump will cycle on when i turn the key. It holds at 42lbs of pressure. Goes to 50lbs after i start it then drops down to 45lbs and then quickly to 30lbs and then a continual drop until it dies. I replaced the fuel filter.

1997 chevy cavilier starts then goes dead after about 2 seconds? it is firing. changed fuel filter check fuel pump pressure by placing thumb over end of filter and having key turned on. had enougn pressure that it was difficult to hold fuel back. Not scientific but dont have test gauge right at the moment.


The fuel pressure needs to be over 33psi but I don't think that the fuel pressure is your issue. Usually if your pump fails then it won't start. Not even for two seconds. If the engine light has been coming on then there would be some codes stored. I ... 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

Starting problem I have a 1995 Jeep wrangler with a 4 cylinder standard transmission. When I try to start it I have to turn the key several times to the on position until i hear a clicking sound from the fuse box under the hood.

I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I love the jeep. I have 380,000 original miles on her and never had any problems. BUT.. When I go to start it now all it does is turn over. Will not start. If I leave the key in the on position for a while ( it varies from a few seconds to a few minutes), I can hear what sounds like a relay click a few times and then the Check Engine light appears and goes away and after the noise... it will start and run like nothing is wrong. Got a new fuel pump ($200.


If the check engine light comes on then there must be a trouble code stored in the PCM memory. What is the code when you turn the key on,off,on ,off... then leave it on....count the engine light blinks. (Don't start the engine during the ... 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have replaced the low pressure fuel pump, the high pressure fuel pump, and fuel filter. The relays are fine and the check engine light comes on so the EEC is ok.
