I have a 2003 alero with the 3.2 v6, when trying to start car it will spin but will not turn over, either not getting any spark or not getting any fuel.I did just replace the micro-relay for the fuel-pump, but it is still doing the samething
Hello!Have you checked for spark when cranking the engine over?If it has spark, does it run on starting fluid?
No, I have not done that. we have a problem in the past like a vapor lock, but when everthing cools down it would start. No such luck this time
Ok.. can you check for spark for me and let me know so I can give you a good answer?
Ues we have spark
Ok.. does the engine run on starting fluid?
Well i do not have any starting fluid, any other suggestions
Is the security light on or flashing with the key on?
it is on
It stays on while the key is on? It does not go off?
I was just outside checking and the security light had gone off, but the check engine light was staying on
Ok.. if the security light is not on or flashing with the key on, then we need to check fuel pressure.
Unfortunatly I do not have the tools to do that. Unless it is something simple to do, It is looking like I am going to have to have it towed in
Can you try pushing on the Schroeder valve in the fuel pressure test port to see if fuel sprays out? You can use a screw driver to do this..
while we have been doing this i have been trying to reset the codes, and what do you know it started and it is running right now. i do thank you for trying to help me out
You bet!Glad to hear it is up and running!
