Question type: General

My car turns over but want start I squirt
some starting fluid in the intake and it runs
fine I shut it off and have to do the same
thing to get it started again

1 Answer


There are 2 main causes for such issue.1- Fuel pump relay (there are 2 relays, one for starting and the other for running). 2-Computer not sending power to starting relay (check ECM for codes, could also be a bad computer). It's a good idea to check fuel pressure at start, I think it should be 60pis for your car. but check maintenance manual. Good luck :-)
