Check for lose of fuel pressure on cold cranking per specs. Her job took her to various clients each day. The videos take real time to create and pull us away from real work that pays our bills. It gives the public the impression our federal government is acting on our behalf which we all know if totally untrue. Was 50 miles from home.
Once again there are lots of cheap chinese fuel pumps that fail usually within a year. Next time, my wife called and said car would not start. One other thing is when hard start it throws a P1351 code. But when I put the relay it doesnot the juice goes thue What else can be Thanks cheyne russell 1-31-12 I have a 99 Chevy Express Van and sometimes it will crank and other times it won't. If you approach this in any other way, you are merely guessing and that only serves to replace unnecessary parts and wastes money. If the red button has popped up, you pop it back in to make it work again. I felt I was getting a run-around.
I replaced my fuel pump with a part from advance auto. I remembered what I had read, and asked her if the anti-theft light was on, and she said yes. I going to try the fix methods listed on this site, unsure if its going to work. Stick around and find out! Running rough, or no power, is usually a fuel filter and or a fuel pump. When cranking it acts like it wants to start would seem to eliminate a no spark issue.
I tell ya what I spent more money on truck repairs and maintaining this season than I think I ever have. I'm thinking maybe a shorted wire somewhere. Long story short of you have a no start 12v and fuel pressure pull 3 plug wire 2nd one back on driver side if it starts repl. I don't have a yellow wire to cut as some have mentioned but have found other places where they have told of cutting the wire it makes sense to me that this shouldn't work because the car really thinks the car is being stolen those of you that have done this good luck! It is very intermitant and hard to discover. Ok so it has been a while since this problem has happened. She would land up being late for appointments because it would not start for 20 minutes once the Passlock system detected a problem with the ignition switch. It felt like it wasn't running on all cylinders.
Unfortunately a Passlock failure mimics a failed fuel pump problem and usually makes the vehicle owner think that the fuel pump has failed. I had the same problem with my Malibu not starting due to Passlock issues other than this problem I have been very pleased with my car. . If that doesn't work, find someone with an air compressor, and use an air hammer with the pointed bit and knock the pin out. That will narrow down your problem. When you turn the key to on, the fuel pump should go on for a few seconds and then shut off-indicating the fuel pump is working.
Listen for fuel pump humm at fuel tank No humm check wiring to pump for power. Cabs are fine, I live in Chicago, but my appointment was in the suburbs so it wasn't cheap and I was still late. Pulled the cap and the brass contacts had a lot of corrosion on them. She had a local mechanic fix this problem, that claimed he had fixed hundreds of Malibus with the same problem, and he did it a lot cheaper. First, securly chock the rear wheel, place the transmission in park. Also when the engine was cool and i shut off pressure would drop from 55 psi to 40 psi. Anyone ever have this issue when it's raining out? I finally found if I took the bottom off the steering column and took the wire coming down from the switch and pulled on them it would start.
I will probably end up replacing the fuel pump though. Also I haven't fully checked the Spark, but the Truck run's fine when you spray Starting fluid into the Throttle body. How do we cut the line on the anti-theft system? I put in a new pump, runs much better. I remembered what I had read, and asked her if the anti-theft light was on, and she said yes. Please if you know what code it's talking about please share this information. This is acceleration enrichment - response to increase vacuum, even tho' more fuel is pullin' from the line. Engines fail, transmissions fail, electronics fail etc.
Needs to be tested when it does it. Key on 60-62 psi, Cranking drops to 50 psi, after several times cranking it finally started and idled at 55 psi. Do we file a complaint with the bankruptcy court? Good luck on the arm cuts! The last thing to consider is if the timing is off I just did this yesterday. It seems to not be firing at times cause the engine sound is different. This may be something you can find yourself. The rest would come on when I pulled on the wires this let the truck start. I then bought a battery charger and attempted to charge it.
The car cranks and the lights come on. The mileage on both are approximately 130,000 miles. It started up right away. He fixed the gaskets but the antifreeze light is still on occasionally, and she keeps a check on the antifreeze level. The first thing I'm going to try is to have a new key cut from the codes as if I lost the key or have the lock smith get the codes from the dealer to cut me a new one to see if its just a worn out key problem. As stated before I have a new fuel pump about 2 yrs now, tuned up about 4 months ago.
