Having problems with your 2005 GMC Envoy ?

My fuel gauge is always on empty even with fuel in the vehicle and now the car will turn over but will not stay runnning...what could it be??? When my car wouldn't start back up someone offered to help and said something about the car not getting any fuel pressure but he also said that it could be the fuel pump.....at this point I am at a lost and need to find a solution to repair this vehicle.

Answers :

Sounds like you have a fuel problem for sure. Perhaps you can simply put 10 gallons of fuel in the tank, charge the battery and try to start the car again. If this doesn't work try spraying w/d 40 into the intake and try to start the car.
Get back to me if one of these doesn't or does work.

1999 Nissan Maxima wont turn over. It cranks, but wont start. It isnt the battery cause its new. My friend said it may be an electrical problem or fuel pump. How can i determine if i am getting a spark? My friend tried to start car and he did something with the fuel line to determine if it was getting pressure and it was. Not sure if it is enough pressure. He also used an older computer but it was only giving the error code for emissions. Any ideas?? Thanks.

2 questions. I have a 95 skylark with a 2.3l in it. And have 2 questions. The car starts to get hot when it is idling but when I give it gas it cools down. I'm in process of flushing system will that fix it or will it end up being the pump? Question #2 When the car sits for a while it is hard starting like it is loosing fuel pressure. Would that be the fuel pump or a leak somewhere else in the line. Or could it be something else non fuel related? Thanks for any assistance!

I have a 560sel that is very hard to start when warm after sitting for a few minutes, the primary fuel pressure holds overnight, but I noticed that the fuel distributor was leaking fuel into the throttle body at rest so I replaced the fuel dist. with a rebuilt unit and it does the same thing, almost all the components have been replaced. Did I get a bad dist or could it be something else. The only way that the car will start warm is by holding the throttle to the floor while cranking for a long


The black smoke is a sign of running rich, so chances are your car is still leaking fuel into the throttle body and the startup is especially rich. The injector itself (at the throttle body) is a likely culprit - if the pintle is leaking, or the O-r ... Mercedes-Benz 560-Series

My car keeps stallin out it will drop below 1000 rpms when idlein at a light or even while drivin the check engine light came on today and they said it can be 4 differnt possiblities either the oxygen sensor/defective, ignition misfire/repair, fuel injector problem, or if bank 1 and 2codes set togethersuspect fuel pressure or maf (mass air flow) sensor then today it would not get any power to it as i had my foot on the gas pedal it was drivng as if it was just coasting. what could it be? i have


Its not the mass flow , if it was that it would idle high the low then high then low and so on. not the oxygen sensor either that would turn on your engine light and kill your mpg but it would not stall the car unless it is flooding it "do you smell ... 1998 Chevrolet Malibu

Ok i have a 1996 olds aurora its been sitting up for 6 months.i just replaced spark plugs,wire,etc. i started it with starter fluid & it started. then i pressed on the gas then the car cut off. it has a new fuel pump could it be the car is not getting enough pressure from the fuel relay, although the car is getting gas to the engine. there are no cracks in the fuel delivery system.


There might be a good chance the gas may have turned in to varnish. If the gas has turning in to varnish, try to drain the gas tank and run high octane with fuel injector cleaner through the system. Gas that has turned in to varnish will ... 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora

Mercury Montego Hello, My car has a very bad **** when accelerating and deccelerating. It seems as though the transmission gets stuck in gear at times and we have to put it into neutral just to get it to kick back into gear. We took it to a dealer and they said they could not find any codes to let them know what was wrong. They said it could be the transmission valve, that it was a known problem with this type of vehicle. They said the part was around 800.00 not counting labor. Any ideas if this


I think the main problem is that the dealer is trying to charge too much for a "known problem". Now if labor is included, that sounds a little more reasonable, but not much....accordianman ... 2005 Mercury Montego

My 90 accord has issues with something. the car sat awhile and would start, wasnt getting fuel. before it was parked it had intermittent no start problems. the car wast getting any fuel. finally got it to start and ran great for about half hour, then is sputtered and i lost rpms and mileage. and it also drained the battery, brand new battery. could the main relay also create this problem? also doeas the fan continue to run after shut down on these cars?


If the problem occur after you stop the car and switch-off the engine, it could be the master/main relay. After a few hours, you can restart the engine as usual. Try to replace the relay, it may work well. Happened to me and my friends before. ... 1991 Honda Accord

I have a 2008 ford focus. I took my car to get two new tires and the tire pressure sensors looked at because the warning light stays on and I get a tire pressure sensor fault message.

Also, in the same vehicle, my car is telling me the driver side door is ajar when it is clearly closed. Does anyone know of a way to fix this issue?

I recently brought my 2001 Nissan Altima to a garage to have it serviced. The mechanic told me that the problem was that the fuel pump was not getting enough pressure. The fuel pump was replaced and now I am being told that the car alarm security system has something to do with the car not starting up. How would the car alarm security system prevent my car from starting up? Is this an easy fix? Justin
