Helppp.. My 09 chevy traverse won’t start

Asked by Mar 15, 2019 at 11:27 PM about the 2009 Chevrolet Traverse

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 09 chevy traverse. It won’t start I
have tried everything! I took it to a mechanic
shop they couldn’t figure it out, so I had it
towed to bud clary they told me it could be a
fuel pump so they changed and it still won’t
start. Now they want to charge me more to
tear into the car... they had it for 3 days and
still don’t know what’s wrong with it.
Sometimes it will start but than die right away
no  Engine light.. No codes come up!

You need a better mechanic: really. There are a lot of reasons why an engine won't start, but that's what mechanics are paid to diagnose. At most, it should take a couple of hours to find all that's wrong and maybe a couple more to fix it. Your car has an ignition or fuel pump problem. You're either not getting proper fuel or spark. Really could be either. Without seeing the car, it's not possible to say what the exact problem is, with proper diagnostic tools you should be able to.


^ this is the kind of guy that has your car


This doesnt need a mechanic... it needs a technician with a brain and a labscope who knows circuits
