Re: Need help... Car starts for 10 seconds then dies

No one has said anything about the possibility of it being the fuel filter. By the way where is it located.

Typically, checking the fuel pressure is a start to determine if the fuel filter is a possible culprit. There is a fuel strainer in the tank and a fuel filter on the firewall next to the battery.

No not one person has said anything about the possibility of the fuel pump. Im sure thats good. Car is getting fuel pretty good now. Its something electrical i think. Because my fuel pump is hooked up right but there is no power going to the fuel pump on the wire. Its like cut off of power

I know where both of those are. Have not checked them yet. I know the strainer is good. Its a new fuel pump in there. Never checked the fuel filter. But what would that have to do with no power in my fuel pump line on the sending unit? Should have voltage. I tested it. No power. So therefor thats why i did the hot wire for the fuel pump. The car has the check engine light on. Im having it towed to a shop this week one of these days after work and getting it looked at. Doing a diagnosis test

My response was to geechiedan.

You do not get power to the black/blue wire unless you are cranking the engine or when it running. You will not get power with the key on while the engine is off.
Did you check the black/yellow and white/red wires at the MFI relay as I suggested in a previous post?
There is a fuel pump check plug located near the firewall behind the battery. The wire is black/blue and is the same gauge as the stock fuel pump wire.
Try powering up this wire while you have someone crank the engine, if it starts and remains running like normal while this wire is powered, you can more or less disregard the pump, the filters or the injectors as the problem but it is not definitive.
If it does not remain running, you have to check the components mentioned previously. There are no shortcuts.
There are members of 3SI in Wisconsin, try reaching out to them, there may be someone local to you that may be able to help you troubleshoot.

Re: Need help... Car starts for 10 seconds then dies

I found the black and blue wire. It has a connector on the end of that. Nothing needs to be hooked up to that? well... Do i just take a hotwire to that while the person is cranking it over.

yep, just attach a pigtail and touch the positive post of the battery.

Re: Need help... Car starts for 10 seconds then dies

im pretty sure a pigtail is a bare wire that you stick into the backside of the connector/plug so you can just touch it with the terminals to see if it has power.

Pretty much it
Better to put a blade type quick disconnect so the connection is solid

Re: Need help... Car starts for 10 seconds then dies

Alrighty ill give it a shot. But now i have run into another problem. The alarm system wont let the car start now. Ever since i disconnected some stuff. Like the main control relay. It wont start now. I took the ECU out but didnt disconnect the wires. Looked like something was kinda fried. I couldnt tell. It was kinda blackened in that area. I didnt see nothing leaking on the board. I dont know how many caps i "should" have in there.

Re: Need help... Car starts for 10 seconds then dies

The car is in a shop now. Ill let everyone know how the diagnostics test turns out. Ill have a call from them by wednesday. They are talking about the aftermarket security system. Which most likely has a solenoid to it. THANK GOD!!! They think thats why the car is not running. Lets hope thats the only reason. My biggest fear is wires fried or something. Or the computer itself

Re: Need help... Car starts for 10 seconds then dies

So here it is..... I got the results and.... Not too good. Shop says i need a new ignition switch and a new engine computer. cylinders 1 2 3 5 dont work at all. 4 and 6 work but they are staying open. The cylinders are flooded according to him. I had them take out the alarm system. Atleast that problem is off my hands. I guess that wasn't it then...Thats what i thought it would have been.

Well does anyone have any suggestions on what i should do?

Re: Need help... Car starts for 10 seconds then dies

Okay so i bought my new computer for the car. Its a used one. Now the part numbers and everything match. But it is out of a AUTOMATIC CAR! He says it will still work with my car. All the numbers match on it.


AND I ALSO JUST BOUGHT SOME BRAND NEW 18' RIMS WITH LOW PROFILES 2000$ FOR ALL OF IT

Re: Need help... Car starts for 10 seconds then dies

have you checked you IAC?
this is a quick fix that should always be checked as the 300o seems to always have a problem with it. if you have then I would also suggest that you check the clip on your air box the clips get worn and have trouble staying on fully
