How do you fix a 1995 Chevy Lumina 3.1 that will not start or even turn over but starts about one time every three hours?
It sounds like you have dirty/loose battery connections, a bad ground, loose ground wire on the engine block, loose hot wire at the starter, bad starter, or bad ignition switch. I have a 95 Chevy lumina and i have rebuilt the starter, replaced the solenoid, put shims between the starter and transmis…sion, changed the battery cable. Jesse (MORE)
You have a 01 325ci every time you start your car you get a message saying inspection -3475 miles what should you do?
Answer . It means you are 3475 past due for your inspection. To reset follow these instructions:. BMW 2001 to current . Ignition Off (Position 0) . Press and Hold the trip odometer button while turning key to position 1 (ACCESSORY) . Keep the button depressed (about 5 secs.) until you see "…Oil Service" or "Inspection" with "Reset" or "Re" in the display* . Press the button again and hold for approx. 5 secs. until "Reset" or "Re" flashes . While the display is flashing, briefly press the button again to reset the Service Interval. After the display has shown the new interval you should see "END SIA" for about 2 seconds . Note: that if the "Reset" or "Re" does not flash, then you have not met the minimum consumption level and cannot reset (MORE)
Anwser Does it run as long and you hold the gas pedal, but stall on idle? I had that problem with my 97 Dak. The problem was the Idle Air Control Valve... $35 from Autozone and fix that was about the same as replacing a thermostat. Answer Try checking all the oxygen sensors and the spark plug…s. My automatic 4x4, '98 would stutter and stall if I didn't keep my foot on the gas at all times. The problem? I hadn't had my regular 60k maintenence done and all my oxygen sensors and my spark plugs where clogged with junk and burned out. ANSWER I also have 1997 Dodge Dakota that was stalling out at start up, if I didn't keep my foot on gas pedal. I had throttle body cleaned for $200. Still had problem. Replaced IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE ($35 part) myself and problem solved. Very easy to install. In back of throttle body, two screws and unplugging electrical plug. 10 minute job. Answer There may possibly be water in the gas if you live in a snowy area or whatever. Try some Iso-heet in it. Answer I had a problem with my truck stalling soon after starting. The problem I found was the hunny comb inside the catalistic converter had detached and was suffercating the truck causing it to stall. Then a few months had pasted and the truck started doing it again. This time it was the computer. One of the pins, after warming, would not make contact and it would cause the truck to stall. Another reason my be carbon build-up. Try some fuel injector cleaner or if the truck is under 100,000 miles and fuel injected, try going to Jiffy Lube or somewhere similar and get the injectors blown. I hope this helps at lease a little. Answer These are all great tips, but you failed to supply some critical information..is your engine fuel injected or normally aspirated (carberated)...makes all the difference in the world. On the higher tech fuel injected systems, the computer usually shuts down the engine by virtue of the fact that information it is receiving from one or more of the sensors tells it to adjust fuel/air/ignition timing to meet the conditions its sensors report..bad sensors=bad running engine..So an added dimension on these vehicles is you have to determine if you have an actual sensor failure, a computer glitch, or a normal hardware (bad plugs, bad wires, bad fuel,vacuum leak, etc)issue. if its carberated it is relatively simplified in that it is probably either bad spark/spark plugs, bad fuel air mixture, bad ignition timing to include bad vacuum (caused by dry rotted vacuum hoses and diaphrams). Used to be a phrase...if it ain't broke, don't fix it... well they managed to "fix" the hell out of the automotive engines and now look how much better they are...NOT! Keep It Simple Silly (KISS) ANSWER I also have 1997 Dodge Dakota that was stalling out at start up, if I didn't keep my foot on gas pedal. I had throttle body cleaned for $200. Still had problem. Replaced IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE ($35 part) myself and problem solved. Very easy to install. In back of throttle body, two screws and unplugging electrical plug. 10 minute job. this is the correct answer IAC valve. somtimes you just can tap on it with somthing . If problem goes away, it's confirmed. they have a tendency to stick. You can also take the valve out and clean it yourself if you do not want to buy a new one. (MORE)
Your 1991 Grand Prix dies every time you brake This starts accuring after you have drove about two miles and the stop and turn the engine off?
Answer . I would pull the trouble codes. This is a OBD 1 so you just need a paper clip to do it. My guess is you have a bad TPS switch. (throttle position switch)It should be located very near where the air cleaner hose attaches to the engine. It is usually a small flat black( size of a BIC light…er) item about 3-4 wires on it. When they are bad sometimes while the engine is running if you tap them the engine will kill. (MORE)
Answer . Go to the start button then to run, type in msconfig click ok. At the top of the box that appears it should have tabs the very last tab says "startup" go down the list to the program you wish to not start-up and uncheck it. Then click apply close. When it closes it will tell you that you… need to reboot, click restart when the computer restarts you will get a message that says "System configuration utility you are using selective start up..." then check the box that says "Don't show this message again" and click on. See if that helps. (MORE)
What's that horrible noise you hear sometimes when you turn the ignition switch on on your '93 Mazda 323 and it will not start the first time?
Answer . If it's a grinding kind of noise it could be the starter not fully engaging into the flywheel. If that's the case you could be causing damage to the flywheel that could end up being quite expensive. If you've never changed a starter, I'd take it to a shop as soon as possible and have som…eone look at it. If you HAVE changed a starter in the past, make certain to look at the flywheel gear to see how much damage has been done. With the starter out and the battery disconnected, use a pry-bar or large screwdriver to turn the flywheel so that you can look at the teeth on the gear all the way around the flywheel. Make certain that the teeth are in good condition, especially if the noise has been going on for a while. On the other hand, the noise COULD just be the stereo, what do I know? ;). Answer . I am the same guy who posted this question. Than you for the advice. Yes, I have replaced the starter about two years ago (I took it to a mechanic, so I'm not sure if they really changed or not; I'll have to take their word for it). Now I will check the flywheel; althoug I don't know what it is right now. This problem has being going on for about 3 years. Thanks again.. Answer . Try checking the ignition module (this is the part located inside the distributor). Often times, Mazda 323s have this type of problem. (MORE)
Why does your Geo Storm turn over and intermittently fire but won't completely start it doesnt do this every time?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nI've had the same problem with my Geo Storm recently. The car will start and run fine until it gets warmed up then the check engine light will come on and the car will hesitate, the tach will jump wildly and when you pull over, it will stall. When you try to start the car,… it will fire intermittently and not start. After sitting for 30 minutes, it will start perfectly fine and run until it gets warmed up again. The computer keeps sending a code 42 (Ignition control module). I've replaced this and still no results. Also replaced the ECM because these models have had some trouble with them. Still no results...same thing. Last step was the ignition coil. So far it seems to be working ok and no problems. One of these components is bad. I recommend going with the coil first since its only about $20, then the ignition control module...about $45 then the computer which runs about $120 for a remanufactured one. I suspect the ignition coil is overheating and breaking down. Also, move the coil farther away from the radiatior hose to eliminate any excess heat caused by the hot coolant. If my car acts up again its going to the junk yard after these fixes. The car is just not worth the headaches.\n. \n. \nOther:\nCheck the Idle air control valve. I've Got a 90 Lincoln Town car that was acting this way. I removed the IAC, cleaned it with brake cleaner and now the car runs much, much better. I do not know if the geo has this, or where it is, but it should. (I'm trying to figure out why my sister's geo won't start right now.) (MORE)
Your 1987 Mazda rx-7 doesn't like to start up after you turn it off if you let the car sit for a couple of days it will start up fine when its cold.how can I fix it so it starts every time?
Answer . Keep in mind, this is a sports car, not a sedan, and it is picky about being properly warmed up. Be sure you warm it up fully before shutting it off. Shutting down a partly warmed engine is likely to flood it. You can test this by reading up on de-flooding techniques and when it doesn't wa…nt to start, go through the de-flooding technique and see if it fixes the problem. . Have you changed your fuel filter recently? If you can't remember, it is due anyway, so see if that improves things. . I have a 1988 RX7 w/ 68,000 miles. I had the same problem for a couple of years. My next change of spark plugs and air filter resolved it. . this guy gave you a nice cotton wool covered answer,if its hard to start its worn and will need a rebuild ,compression is low,when the oil is cold it is thick and allows a good seals boosting compression easily starting ,once warm oil is thin and wont pull the same trick,hense you leave it and it starts agian,or the thermostat is old engine runing hot and the oil is overheating causing it to be too thin creating early wear making the problem worse, all these loosers with the sports car story above, go the rotary, hope the hydrogen ones are cool luck bro (MORE)
I need To turn the distributor cap on a 350 1985 a quarter turn to the right so the air filter will fit but every time i do that the engine wont start what should i do and how can you do it right?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nIf you are slackening the clamp and swinging the dist round quarter of a turn it is throwing the ignition timing right out. You have to remove the distributor completely from its drive and turn it, then replace. You can set the finer timing with a strobe light.\n. \n. \n…. \n. \nanswer move wires back 2 terminals counterclockwise\n. \n. \n. \nAnswer \n. \n. \nGet a smaller diameter air filter.\n. \nAnswer:\n. \nThe reason your engine wont fire is that you are putting your ignition advance out of time. Play with your distributor until your vehicle runs properly and tighten your bolt down and leave that as it is. Now what you must figure out is how to get your air filter on. You can put a Throttle body spacer on to position your carb a little higher. Or you could go and purchase a different air filter holder and a new air filter that will fit on your engine. Take your time if your purchasing a new holder because you dont want to waste your money get something that looks good and is functional. I prefer edelbrock stuff so i would go with edelbrock and probably a K&N filter. Anyways yeah your problem is you are screwing with your spark advance. (MORE)
When it does start eventually1995 Aurora starter just clicks one time each time you turn the ignition Is this the starter failing because when it starts starts like a champdoesn't do it every time?
Answer . \nI would start by checking and cleaning the battery cables.Might be something as easy\nas that. Also I would try hooking up jumpper cables to the connections under the hood.\nthis would elimanate the battery and all cables from under the rear seat. If it starts\nfine with jumpper cable…s trace it backward to fine bad cable. now the bad news,if none\nof this helps it is most likely a bad start solinoid witch is mounted on top of the\nstarter. More bad news the starter is under the intake manifold.This is a a job to remove\nthe manifold and injectors and wiring to get to the starter.Hopefully the lose or dirt\nbattery cables fixes the problem.\n. \nGood luck, hope this helps, Ben Parker, San Jose, Ca.

I can start my 1995 Chevy S-10 by turning the key to the on position and pushing down the clutch but I cant shift because the starter spins every time I push in the clutch why does this happen?
the ignition switch is shorted or wires shorted at the switch. Your clutch safety switch is just doing it's job and completing the circuit when pushed.
95 Olds Aurora turns over for a long time before it will start after engine is warm and you shut it off for about ten minutes or so When it does refire you get a strong gas oder as if it were flooded?
You may need to replace the fuel line/rail in the engine compartment, which may degrade. Its part of a recall. My car was doing the same thing. my 95 lolds it was the fuel presure regulator leaking through the vacuum line that connects between throtle body and regulator disconnect the vacuum line wh…ile running and check for fuel comming out of the vacuum line if so reptured regulator also make sure the engine cover did not pintch the plastic vacuum line (MORE)
Battery was dead so you began to charge it so I then tried to turn it over and it starts to try to fire and backfires could it be timing?
Answer . \nif it backfires it could be timing or else you have it flooded from trying to start it. You didn't say if the engine is carb or fuel injected. If it is carbed, let it sit for awhile to let the gas drain out of the carb. If it is fuel injected then it is probably timing.. Answer … . \nyear make and model of vehic and millage (MORE)

Why does my 960 Volvo not start at times after making a short tripnothig happens when you turn the switch but let it set for an hour and she will crank this happens about once every six weeks?
probably a bad starter have it checked. This somewhat reminds me of my situation. I have a 960 and often when i start the vehicle the interiors to go on but the gears won't move, the seatbelt light doesn't flash, etc. If i tilt the key in the ignition back, ever so slightly, it will catch and th…e car's ready to drive. Alternatively, I would say it's a bad starter as I've experienced one of those in a 2001 Taurus and after too many of times of it 'just catching' it completely failed. (MORE)
1994 Chevy Astro Van and it won't start Every time you turn the key to start it the van rurns turns over but it won't start. I changed the spark plugs and the fuel filter but it still won't start Help?

97 geo prism half the time it starts and half the time you just get a single click from the starter area each time you turn the key batteryconections are tight so is it starter or solenoid rebuildable?
Answer . Mine did the same thing a while back. You'll have to replace the starter if it only starts half the time and clicks the other half (it's only going to get worse with time.) You might wind up with a car that won't start at a bad time if you don't.
Do all 1989 Camaros have a fan switch in the car that has to be turned on and off every time you drive and if so why?
umm i don't know of any car that has a manual fan switch the only reason someone would put one in is if the fan didn't come on by itself Answer I think those cars like any other camaro that has an electric fan has to turn on by it self. When the car warms up the fan should turn on by it self so th…e car don't over heat. If the switch looks out of place or not from there well quess what its not from there. I had a camaro that to turn on the fan I always had to have the AC on... go figure.... But it was wrong someone rig it like that they had some problems with the fan not wanting to turn on so to go around the problem many people just put a switch inside but its no big deal. So the awnser is NO your car shouldn't have a switch. "Is it a problem no the car will be fine no big deal as long as you turn it on every time!" (MORE)
Answer . NO IT WILL START AT DIFFRENT TIMES NOT ALWAYS ON THE SAME DATE
Well i would call it a good running car, since you want your car to start everytime...
If your car won't start every time it rains, water may be shortingout wires or it may be getting into the fuel system. Both willprevent the engine from cranking or starting.
Providing it arrives when on the 7 day break or sugar pills then this is normal.
I have the same problem it was after i replaced the starter im thinking that it may have something to do with that i have keyless start and that works the first time every time. dono.
more than likely the scrapping noise your hearing is the starter-to-flywheel engagement. when you start your car, a gear in the starter motor turns a gear attached to the engine, the "scrapping" noise is caused by those two gears not meshing properly. got a new starter and still hear the noise? the …gear on your flywheel may be worn out. you can buy shims to correct this but that is not a good, long term fix. the flywheel gear really needs to be repaired or replaced (MORE)
If by stagering you mean hesitating or slow cranking , then you better check your battery and connections. Very hot or cold conditions require a lot of cranking power, if your battery is old I would have it checked out at your local Auto Zone or full service gas station.
yes and no.. it all depends on your body.. some people have it on the same time every month and some people start it at different dadys every month. like a week earlier, later, 2 weeks later. because of stress, diet, excercise.
When you try to start your 01 impala it has a hard time starting and sometimes dies What could it be?
Depends on what it sounds like. If it doesn't want to turn over, it coudl be your alternator or starter; other than that, please give more information.
You'd be surprised by just how much power people could save by turning off the lights! On average, one light bulb uses sixty watts of energy per hour. Let's say you turn off a certain light for one hour daily. After a year, you'll end up saving over 22,000 watts of energy.. Electricity is saved if …lights are turned off every time you leave a room for more than a few minute, but the surge of power required to restart the light when it is switched back on may cancel any saving if the light has been turned off for only a few seconds.

Why won't a 1999 Lexus LS 400 start every time without switching the ignition key on and off several times?
I had the same problem the car started sometimes and sometimes did not. In my case i needed contacts, the contacts in the starter was bad. It cost me $500.00 so my advice is to buy a new starter the contacts were $12.99 a piece and later on i found out that you can buy a new starter for $500.00
If a cutter is turning at 180 RPM how many times will the starting point return to the starting position in 4 seconds?
180 rpm = 180 revolutions per minute. 1 minute = 60 seconds. Revs per second = 180/60 = 3. Revs in 4 seconds = 3 x 4 = 12. So the cutter returns to start 12 times in 4 seconds

Ignition switch going bad, corroded or loose battery cables, starter relay or starter going bad.

Why is that every time I start my corolla 1991 ive seen a battery sign in my dash board but my battery is 2 months old only?
The battery icon does not mean the battery is bad.... it means the battery is not receiving the full charge. You might want to check wire connections, belt tension, or even have the alternator checked. Most major auto stores will check the alternator free of chare.
You have a short to ground somewhere. Start at each lamp socket, then the wiring and look for problems. Possible bad headlight switch. Also in checking shorts, don't forget the license plate light in addition to all marker lights. Dash lights normally go out when the tail light fuse blows as dash l…ights are fused from the tail light circut. (MORE)
There's almost certainly a wire off on the back of the stereo, or a blown fuse: Car Stereos take two (occasionally three) +12V power feeds. The main one is routed via the ignition switch - it sounds like this one is intact. There is sometimes a separate illumination feed which picks off the dash…board lighting supply. Ignore this one (it isn't your problem) The one that I think is causing you problems is the standing supply that comes straight off the battery bus without touching any of the switches. If your stereo uses the standard(ish) Isopin connector, it's the yellow lead. (MORE)
What do you mean charge the amplifier? It's not a battery, so you just turn the stereo on. When the stereo goes on, the remote wire will turn the amplifier on and you're good to go.
Take a flat edge screwdriver and a hammer. Insert screwriver into the ignition and bang hammer as the wheel is turned. Happens to mine all the time and that works. I was told it might be the cylinder going bad.

Why do you have to reset a GFCI controlled by a switch every time you turn the switch off and back to the on position?
A GFCI outlet is now required by code when an outlet is within 6ft. of a plumbing fixture (a ground). That is so if there is a short in appliance plugged into that outlet, you don't get zapped when you happen to touch a metal part of it while holding onto the faucet or stainless sink. It does this… by sensing incoming and outgoing current. Any difference and it shuts down in a millisecond. When you ground yourself out to the fixture, you create an additional current draw that doesn't return to neutral, hence, the shutdown. Turning off an upstream switch also creates this difference, for a millisecond. (MORE)
