Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2001 catera will start and run fine after you crank it with starting
fluid then after it has been cut off for awhile it wont start unless you
use the starting fluid again I replaced fuel filter so what would be the
reason for it not starting on its on

1 Answer


I'd say not enough fuel pressure. How old is the fuel pump, test the pressure to pinpoint if it's your fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump is the issue.
