I started the car 2 times, each time it ran for only about 5 seconds then died. I was not able to start it on a third and fourth try. (It turned over though). The next day the same starting pattern happened. Again the same on day 3.
I checked fuel and injectors are shooting about a half thimble full of fuel as I turn the car over 4 or 5 times. How much should I be getting?
It also is firing. I sprayed WD40 into throttle body and the engine fired it.
Dealer told me to suspect passlock system. Could it be this that is shutting the fuel down? Passlock light is on solid now 1/5/07.
1/6/07 - I have used a code reader - no codes found.
The car started 1/7/07 and it ran well for 10 seconds and then died. I still suspect no fuel to injectors. I left the battery connected for 24 hours and the passlock light which had been on is no longer on.
Next step is to replace fuel filter and check fuel rail at the engine.
Please write back with ideas.
have the same problem?
