car won't start
TONS of battery (brand new. 900 Cold Cranking amps, 1000 Warm.)
I can crank it over for 10 mins on that battery, it just won't start
it kicks over a few times.. but most of the time the engine is just spinning, with no firing goin on. I can smell TONS of gas. If I open the throttle a little bit, sometime it kicks over, but most of the time, not.
Any suggestions? anyone have similar problems that they fixed?
Right now I am thinking it is the IAC valve or the Air Charge temp sensor. any other theories?
ok.. got a readout from the recent 'check engine light' scenairo. (the car did start, after much cranking and 'borrowing' some juice from my roommates car):
Code 51 - Oxygen sensor signal input indicates lean fuel/air ratio.
Code 66 - PCM is not receiving CCD Bus Signals.
Code 42 - Auto shutdown relay (ASD) control circuit indicates an open or shorted circuit condition.
now, the Oxygen sensor is a problem I can see, there is 101K on the car.. the O2 sensors probably need replacing. (4 of them, youch) will that cause a Hard start condition? When I start my car from dead-cold, (sitting overnight) it will kick over, then proceede to flood out. (lots of gas smell from the exhaust). I realize that alot of other things could cause it.
The other errors.. I have no idea what they are? any help?
The car is probably going to the dealer onmonday to get checked.. I can't not have a car with these upcoming months.
hey gary! Thanks a ton!!! I can at least START my car now.. floor it before I even turn the key.. and keep it down till it kicks over... workes like a charm now. Not a PERMANENT fix.. but good enought till I can replace what I need to replace.
