Asked by Apr 07, 2011 at 11:51 AM about the 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport 3 Dr SE Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1995 Trans Sport 3.8
I don't believe there is a fuel pump cold advance solenoid, but is there a sensor for lower than 400 RPMs that I may need to replace?

1 Answer

685

I think your fuel pressure is to low and that is why it won't start without starting fluid 10 psi to low will cause this. The engine needs more fuel to start than to run.
