Car starts and dies a second later
I got a 1996 Dodge Caravan and when I
turn the ignition it starts and then dies. I
assumed it was the IAC but after replacing
it, nothing changed. Please help.
Did you check the fuel pressure
No I haven't. I got 2 mechanics telling to check fuel pump. The other to check the automatic security shutdown system. I just want to make sure I'm checking the right issues
How do you check the fuel pressure
Please try the following procedure. Spray starting fluid in the plenum and start the car. If it continues to run after ten or so seconds, then everything is ok. Sometimes the fuel pump needs to be primed and just getting the vehicle started allows the proper pressure to do this and also proves your ignition, timing and everything else is good. If it does not stay running, then suspect the pump not running or a fuel delivery issue is present. Mine started and has been running great after I replaced the fuel filter and sprayed the starter fluid.
