It could be that you keep cranking it and flooding the block.This was your crankshaft sensor replace the sensor very cheap bring it with you to the parts store and they will give you a new one then your set to go. ... 2005 Volvo S40

My 1999 honda accord is jerkin at times and also has a hard time picking up speed. my check engine ligth has been on for a while and everytime the car start to **** the light flashes. ohh and a few months ago i was driving and heard a bang under the hood it was my spark plug that poped out could that have something to do with it.


Did the spark plug POP and fly out or did it just unscrew itself and worked until loose and then was loose enough to be blown out during a compression stroke? being attached to the spark plug wires helps keep from unscrewing...so im a little nervous. ... 1999 Honda Accord

Timing Chain I think the timing chain is either broke or slipped off because, the car is running rough. It has like a clanking sound when you start it up and the car shakes bad and makes like a poping noise from the engine. Any advise at all would be appreciated.

Engine cuts out immediately after starting,wont even at least rough idle before engine cuts out. Sometimes you have to go through hard starting before the engine starts then cuts out. It doesnt happen when the engine is cold only happens when the engine is hot when re starting. What I do is wait for the engine to cool a bit after that no problem starting. The car does not experience rough idling but I am afraid one day the engine might just die while sitting in traffic. Some say it could be the

2007 Scion tC engine starts ok, but after a few minutes the engines just stops. It appears the engine is not getting fuel. When the engine starts to die and I press On the gas pedal it does not good, again it appears the engine is not getting fuel. If you try to restart the engine it will start, but then quit. If you let the engine Let it set for a while, then it will start back up and run a few minutes quit and the symptoms start all over again.

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

My 2000 Jimmy won't start, I can hear the fuel pump running and then shutting off before I attempt to start the engine. I also hear it running while I attemp to start the engine. The engine won't start until I put a little gas onto the butterfly in the intake. It may take several attempts before the engine continues to run. If you shutoff the engine, then restart it, it starts but don't wait 3 minutes or it won't start. Any Ideas?


The pump is working normally the reason it stops before you start the engine is it has built up enough preasure and cuts out. When you turn over the engine it starts up again as the preasure goes down when the carburator open's. The pump only helps t ... 2000 GMC Jimmy

Truck starts intermittently, when ignition key is turned engine clicks but fails to start. After several attempts the engine will start. After driving approx 10 miles the engine is turned off and the key is re-tried. The engine starts right up. After truck has sat from 1-2 hours when the key is turned it fails to start. The ignition switch and battery have been replaced and the started relay has been checked. What is the underlying cause of the intermittent starting?


If the engine just only clicks ( but not cranking over ), the starter itself maybe the main cause. \015\012\015\012Ignition switch and starting relay check out fine. You have already replaced the battery which would rule out the weak cranking a ... Dodge Ram 1500

I have this problem for quite a bit. The idling speed when engine started cold is between 700-800 rpm. As the engine gets hotted idling rpm increase to almost 1000rpm. If idling is adjusted back, the rpm is starts low (engine vibration felt) at cold start and most of the times engine can not start. When gas pedal is pressed the engine stalls and sounds the engine is choking. My vehicle is a 1994 Nissan van with 2L engine. Am not sure if it similar to Sentra or Altima but it is carbureted.


There appears to be a thermal movement of choke mechanism that comes about once vehicle is warmed up. Check the chock connections, hot water pipe and linkages tight or clear.\015\012gazakat ... Nissan Sentra

I have a Golf 3, suddenly the engine won't start. The mechanic said its brainbox damage. I changed it, then the car engine started, after sometimes, i switched off the engine. I tried again to start it, it won't start again, then we swapped another brainbox from another golf 3, and it starts the engine but the brainbox got heated. So what we found out was the brainbox got over heated when the engine is turned on. What is the cause and the solution please. Thanx

My 2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid didn't start this morning! I turned the key, and everything went off. I could hear the electric engine trying to start, but that was it. The fuel engine never started. The lights and dashboard went back on, with the "Engine" indicator on. It sounds as if the main battery was OK, but the electric engine battery is dead!? Is the electric engine supposed to start the fuel engine?
