Crank no start (when hot)

Asked by Mar 06, 2016 at 11:30 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Camaro Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello, I have a 1999 camaro rs with the 3.8 litre
supercharged engine. Baught the car last year and ran
good for about 2 months and then started to stall out after
it got to running temperature. I have engine codes for fan 1
and fan 2 also have a cps  code as well. I replaced the cam
sensor and that didn't work. The problem seems to be
getting worse now I have abs light also left turn signal light
and high beam light stay on until the car warms up. I've
tried to check the ground wires and clean them up that
didn't work. Also when I drive at night and hit a bump in the
road my headlights flicker or go out entirely.  I've run out of
patience with this car and just want it to run like it should
and be reliable. I also get about 200 kms per fill up. Please
help me!

could it be your fuel pressure regulator? http://www.partsgeek.com/xfhh4n9-chevrolet-camaro-fuel- pressure-regulator.html? utm_source=shoppingcom&utm_medium=pf&utm_content=wc&ut m_campaign=PartsGeek+ShoppingCom&fp=pp&utm_term=Chev rolet+Fuel+Pressure+Regulator

the main ground strap from the battery connected to the chassis and to the motor need to be tidied up with a wirebrush and water rinse~ 50 AMPS needs to get through there...flickering would indicate a loose clamp on the positive AND the negative having blue corrosion on the important connections would solve your problem for NO Money...'cept a little water and scratchy brush~

Bob_nueske it wouldn't make sense for that to happen. Forgot to inform that after it stalls out and has the crank no start, I let it sit for about 20 minutes and it will start again no problem and drive fine. Until it gets hot again.

my poppa, who designed LEAD out of car battery design in like 1995 tells me the new tin-antimony batteries have a life of about TEN years before they stop accepting a re-charge~ so check the date embossed on top...perhaps you need a NEW battery~

well it's scientific...do to expansion and contraction of dis-similar materials...combined with a dodgy connection is a miracle it even starts at all...Salty mid-west places will Ruin a car this way~
