I have a starting problem with my 1996 2.2 chevy cavelier. As soon as I turn the key it fires up for just a couple of seconds then dies. Once it starts it runs fine, but I usually have to try to start it at least anywhere from 10 to thirty times before it finally keeps running. Nobody seems to have heard of this particular problem that I know. One mechanic say that the catalytic converter may be stopped up and causing back pressure type of problem. I feel that the problen is fuel related or maay


Is your check engine light on, do you have any trouble codes? If it's a sensor problem, I'm guessing the mechanic would have looked at that already. A plugged cat or muffler (sometimes the guts of the cat converter will plug up mufflers) would lead t ... 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

O2 sensor Vehicle keeps stalling out but not die'ing. Its not constant, somedays will drive fine, others I would rather walk. Ive had 2 tell me (using check box) that its the o2 sensor, 2 others say its the fuel pump. Im leaning towards the sensor. Here is the problem, before I buy the sensor, Ive heard there is one before and one after the converter. Is this true? 2003 dodge stratus sedan se, 2.4l dohc. thanks


Well i think one o2 senor is by the manifold and the other is under your vehicle by the convertor ... 2003 Dodge Stratus

I have a 1991 nissan pickup 4 cylinder I installed 2 brand new alternators within 2 yrs. The second one died yesterday. What could cause this problem? The battery was brand new too. I've changed the oil, air fiter, gas filter, plugs, and wires. My sister told me when my brother inlaw put the radio in it started to die if she turned it on with the wipers or lights.So I took out the radio. It ran great for a while. But the second one died yesterday. Could a problem with my ignition, cause this, be

Have a 2004 corvette coupe that didn't start the other day. Had AAA come out and jump start me and was able to keep vette running the rest of the day. AAA told me my battery was dead and that I needed to get another one. I bought a sears Die Hard Gold. After it was installed my vette started right up. Now, this morning the same thing happened. I put the key in and no response. No lights, no codes, no sounds. What could be causing this. My vette has been running perfect with no problems. I need

I've been having multiple problems with my 1998 dodge caravan, and was wondering if the cause of all of them would be from the moisture that's getting into the brain box?


I suggest you get another unit as the water or moisture in the box will not be helping at all. In all your fault codes if it is the box you would have had a fault code that includes the cpu as a source of the fault. ... 1998 Dodge Caravan

My 91 Isuzu Pickup quit day like it had run out of gas, but I had just filled it. I can start it but it dies about 45 sec. . I pulled the pump and it works. After I put pump back in I looked to see if any fuses might be the cause. Everything seemed to be OK . I started engine and it kept running. I drove it about a mile came home and it died. Because I had been messing with fuse and relay box last I tapped on lid of box and it started and ran. How do test relays , is that really what my problem


Pull your battery cables and hold them together for 3-5 min. this will reset the cpu. Then try it. You could have also gotten some bad gas. Put in some heet and change the filter. this should help. \015\012Calvin ... 1991 Isuzu Pickup

Remove the raidator cap while running or watch the overflow tank for bubbles. If you see bubbles either way, most likely your cause of the overheating is a leaking head gasket. If you have a cooling system pressure tester, pump up the cooling system ... 1989 Ford Crown Victoria

I have been having a problem with my 2003 Jeep GC. The original alternator went out about a year ago and I got a replacement from advanced auto. Worked OK for about 4 months and died again. Took it back and they checked it and it was not putting out anything. So far I have had to replace 3 alternators. Each one checked bad at the store. It is getting crazy changing the alternator every other month or so. Has anyone had a problem like this and what could be causing the alternators to die?


You may have a short in it somewhere, i had a small short and it fried my \015\012alternator within a week.\015\012 check all wiring very close. if there is a after market stereo or something else, it may be over heating from working so hard. check w ... 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Ignition problem My 1983 E-350 van which has a 351 motor in it, when I drive it I can go 5 or 6 miles with out a problem and then it will start to sputter and eventully die, I'll then leave it sit for about 5 minutes and then it will start again, Then I'll be able to drive it a couple of more miles and it will kill again!

This is a common occurance in Fords of the 80's vintage. The problem is your ignition control module is bad, and they were the same for pretty much all the engines for the years from 77 through the late 80's. I used the one off my 2.3 liter 81 Must ... 1983 Ford Bronco

I have a 1989 Chevy 20 van with a 5.0. It starts fine, but dies right away. You have to keep pumping gas to keep it going. Could this be the fuel regulator,or maybe the diaphram? I have 1990 G20 Chevy Van with an 8 cylindar engine. Little more than a week ago it would not start one morning. Had the fuel pump changed it would start then but would not stay started. Since then changed the distributer cap and idle coil (?) still have the same problem. Any ideas?

In my 2003 Mazda 6, how are the dual radiator supposed to operate? The one on the passenger side was not plugged in, and when I plug it in it sounds like it's on high speed, they're both on at start up. If I keep it unplugged, the drivers side fan keeps the temperature guage in the middle of the range. I read about the electric fan control on these cars causing problems, do I need to change the module? Thanks.
