I have a 2000 chevy with 5.3 liter v8. fuel pump has been replaced but the same problem is still there. some times it will start on first try, but usually it takes two times it seems that the fuel pressure is bleeding off drying a short distance starts first time but if drive a mile or two then it takes two times could the pressure be leaking from the fuel injections., also after the key has been removed the gauges will come on. but once3 the door is opened they go off.

The last time I drove the car it sputtered while accelerating while, but got better as the car warmed up. The next time I tried to drive, it didn't start. This lead me to believe that the problem involved the fuel filter, however I replaced it today and the car still does not start. I feel that I can rule out any problem with the fuel pump because the car still hums right before it cranks.

I have a 1995 GT. When I start it in the morning, I turn on the key and let it sit until the car chimes stop before I try to start. If I don't the car cranks a long time before it starts. When it finally does, it runs like it is loaded up and runs rough until I pump the accelerator to clear it out. When the car sits for a while and I try this, some times it works fine other times it loads up again. The car is like new with only 38000 on the odometer. Weak fuel pump?


I suggest testing the fueling system, it sounds like you are losing pressure during shutdown. the start procedure that you describe would allow the fuel system to repressurize. \015\012\015\012Hook up pressure gauges and test the system a ... 1995 Ford Mustang

My 2003 E270 CDI has drive-ability problems. The car has to be kept on idle for 10 min. w/o touching the accelerator, only then it can be driven, that too it lacks power, and will not rev beyond 2500-3000 RPM. If I try to drive immediately after starting it starts emitting smelly thick smoke, the engine starts making loud noises, car will not move ahead and stalls. It keeps giving problems if tried to start again in short time. But if kept for long time (4-5 hrs) and started again and kept on id

I have a Falcon FG ute. Some times after trying to start the car (in park) it wont start. The battery is ok and you can faintly here a quiet starting sequence trying (i think almost like a electric fuel pump engaging). Leave it for a few minuits and come back and it starts. Dealer could find no fault. It happens maybe every 15 times it is started. Also sometimes the drive train engages when put into drive with a woring clunk. Again the dealer can find no fault.

I am having issues where while driving down the road the engine will suddenly lose rpms and if the speeds and rpms are low enough it will kill the engine and i have to start it again. when i start it, it MIGHT start the first time, if it doesn't I return the ignition key to off and do it again. It sometimes works on the 2nd try and future tries tend to work after that. When driving down the road after a engine restart like that I have to take care accelerating as the engine shudders like it want

I have a 96 Mercury Grand Marquis. The car lurches while driving feeling like it will conk out. Usually when going uphill on the highway and trying to accelerate or maintain speed. This does not happen all the time and usually starts after drving about 30 minutes, but sometimes it happens after drving just few minutes.Then it will do it when slowing down or stopping and trying to accelerate. We just had the right catalytic converter replaced. It ran great for 1 day then started doing it again.
