I confirmed that it's getting all 8 spark plug using test lights. I really think you're having an ignition problem. However, I am thinking it's more matter of fuel injector issue since it almost almost started with starting fluid. Also I bled the system put some block sealer in radiator Now that I have replaced the anti freeze on Cool start the temp. It appears to clatter more at start-up, when cold, at idle, with the Mobil 1 oil and filter. Pops and backfires but will not start. Air filer clean, fuel is at the injectors, a strong spark present.
Phil Feinstein 6-25-07 What you're describing sounds an awful lot like a collapsed catalytic converter. Also I could hear fuel pump in the back. Went to Fred Meyer's earlier tonight and the truck was running great, no problems. Phil Feinstein 7-3-07 Maybe, but low fuel pressure won't explain the codes that you have. It just cranks but wont turn over. Trust me, I've tried hundreds of things throughout the years.
If your vehicle is not firing up do the basics checks. One last thing, you said that it's running good now but not perfect. I went back in to try and start it again and the security light was flashing. I checked the spart at the plugs and i'm getting spark. My Silverado was a lease return, I have the service records from the previous owner a development company and it had Pennzoil Platinum put in it from the first oil change. Only a hand full of products have even come close to giving me the results that I expected from them. There's also a rumor Mercedes has moved away from Mobil 1 products.
This problam started a month ago, at first it had a hard time starting - would crank and crank untill it would fire. Keep try it and then it starts. I sealed the connection with rubber sealant. When you turn the key to on, the fuel pump should go on for a few seconds and then shut off-indicating the fuel pump is working. If the vehicle sat longer for two days it would take even longer to start. Does this motor have a heat riser in the exhaust manifold? So guess time to get freightliner or other type step vans. Repalced fuel relay,fuel pump,distributaor cap, roto button, runs great after I get it cranked but it is the starting when it rains.
Thanks Wes, Joey,Chris,Scott and Gerson. I was experiencing problems with the van not turning on. I spilled coolant all over the places. You can short the two contacts going to it, in effect disabling that inhibitor. It also is a 99. Gauge goes to half immediately then after 10 minutes the needle go all the way to the top and still loops and cut off.
I can hear my relay kickin in too so i dont think this is the problem. Other note: Fuses were checked and they seemed to be all fine. . However, I would venture to guess that it might be your valve guide seals leaking on the top end. Go to the small wire going to starter solenoid and see if it is getting 12 volts key on in start. While we were at it we put new wires in.
Engine has about 125,000 miles on but runs great till now. Good luck and Merry Christmas! It will keep on turning over and making usual sound but won't ignite. It fires up on the first try thereafter. That will narrow down your problem. Motorhome Hire 7-27-12 Dfhdghd Motorhome Hire 7-27-12 Euihgiusdfhigsuixhvjksg Jack 5-22-12 Bought a 2000 Chevy Express Van that ran beautifully for a week, now it totally dead. We changed the fuel pump which was not bad and he put a new fuel filter in, and it still wont start. Your vehicle is not protected by Passlock at this time.
Thanks Hello, I need some general advice. You're not paying me for this so my advice is just as valuable as your own. I run a Locksmith service so I need to get this fixed as soon as possible. All Messages in Thread Author Date Fred 6-23-07 1999 Chevy Express Van, mileage 130000. I do this a few times and it will start. In either case you might try putting some Lucas Oil Stabilizer in with your next oil change.
If the battery is good, need to separate whether you have an ignition problem no spark at plugs or a fuel problem no pressure at fuel rail, no pump running, etc. Some of the problems you described the bulbs may have multiple filiments with only some burned out. I cant seem to keep the van running. There is gas present at the gas line, just before the fuel meter. Should I try a new battery at this point? Can you tell us the last time this van was serviced? It acts like it is not getting enough gas.
Rob I know that you're not throwing any codes right now, however I don't think for your year and model a computer check will result in a whole lot. Regarding fuel I do not have the red button that was mentioned but I did check the fuel filter fuse and it was okay. When new, I also had it upfitted at Commercial Van Interiors. It will drive for about a mile and then quit. I'm sure you do this already, but use anti seize on the plug threads and put a little silicon grease on each terminal. Can these problems be related.
