Re: Car turns off after start?

Fuel pump can't maintain the pressure in the system?

Have you tested it yet?

Re: Car turns off after start?

nope havent tested it yet =/

but basically this what happened. i took it to smog it month ago it failed by alot. they said i needed a tune up(has new cat and o2 sensors so dont need those). so i havent had money lately but finally i do and the car has been sitting for a month & 2 at the max. so it turns on but just dies shortly after.

sounds like i repeated my first post but yea felt like explaining it how it went down

Re: Car turns off after start?

sounds to me like it could be 1 of 2 things---

1 your not getting enough fuel/spark
2 your timing is off

Tune up will make it run rough, but not die. Are you throwing any codes?

Re: Car turns off after start?

also check your EGR valve & all spark plugs. something similar happened to me with my accord.

I couldn't keep the engine alive cause I had a loose spark plug and my EGR valve was stuck open.

check that out.
