Does it crank but not start? Then the starter is fine, if it doesn't crank then the starter could be too hot.

Even the modern engines require the basics: Fuel and Fire!

You said it cranks- Do you have spark? If so, check your fuel pressure.
Keep us posted.

if you crank if for long enough does it eventually fire up? or can you crank it till your battery goes dead with out it starting?
if it will eventually fire up i'm guessing it is a leaky injector. after you shut it off it will just leak fuel and flood it. next time it does that just floor it while it cranks and see if you can get it to fire up after if dryes out a little bit. i have another idea just give that one a try and if its no good let us know.

I had a similar problem a few years back with my 1989 Pontiac Grand Am. I believe there was a problem in the ignition. When the car warmed up, no spark. When the engine cooled, it would start and run fine. What I would do is put the car in neutral when it would stall and coast along while trying to restart it. Eventually the flowing air would cool the ignition enough to get the spark again. I did this for a week back and forth to work before paying the money and getting it fixed. I am not sure exaclty what part was replaced but remember it was something with the ignition. Hope this helps.

Ok. Listen up. My brother has a 99 dodge avenger sport. All avengers are "learning" cars. It is most likely something in your computer. The computer controls everything on the car including the transmission. Go to a service station with a computer and pay the guy to hook the machine to your computer. You will get your definite answer there.

Re: yall gonna kill me

I would look at the fuel regulator. Try some starting fluid see if it starts.. If so check the fuel injection pressure at the rail...


Let us know >>>>
