why wont my 2002 buick rendezvous stay started?

Asked by Feb 14, 2015 at 08:43 PM about the 2002 Buick Rendezvous CXL AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently replaced the altenator on my 2002 buick rendezvous. The vehicle has sat up for
about a month. After putting the altenator on, I started it up and it was hard to start. After
trying about five times, it turned over, sputtered like no gas fuel was getting to the
injectors, and then shut off. I tried it twice more and it did the same thing, But then it also
went into a high idle, went back to normal for about 10 seconds then shut off again.
