    Have you checked fuel pressure yet, you probably need a new pump?

My 99 is similar, after sitting for 36hrs or more (getting home Sat. afternoon till Mon. Morning), When I go to start it, it cranks like it is flooded. if you plug off almost all air to intake, making some suction on your hand while cranking, it fires up and runs like normal. after replacing the intake tube (filter to intake) accelerates and drives fine. The next day (Tuesday thru Saturday Morn), starts right up. I park it Sat. afternoon, come Monday Morn, same prob. Thre Sundays ago, I Started it (no Prob) rev'd it a couple times, running for half a minute and shut it down. Monday, I had to Plug the intake again. two weeks ago, I went a block away from my Apt on Sunday for Breakfast, ran it a couple minutes before shutting down, Drove it back home a couple hrs latter. Monday, had to Plug it. Last weekend, I went to same restaurant, then drove around like a teenager for a couple minutes in low gear. This morning, Started right up. Any suggestions other than take up going to church on Sundays?

My 2004 yukon would start then die i replaced the fuel filter and it will turn over but wont start the fuel pump is working what could be the problem

Mass air flow meter, crank position sensor, Water temp sensor all affect starting problems. Have a diagnostic test done on it to reveal any codes that come up that will pinpoint the parts causing the problem.

2000 GMC Yukon Denali just changed o2 sensor tps sensor pcv valve fuel filter and did an oil change. Now it wont start. Drove it 3 days before what's the problem

Good question. There are certain things an engine needs to start and run.
> air-fuel mixture
> volumetric efficiency
> compression
> ignition

Which of these things is your engine missing?

Nobody can tell you over the internet without first checking the vehicle out to determine which of these things are missing. Even if we knew which one, there are MANY things that can be the possible cause of each of these things to not be correct.

Plain and simple, the vehicle is going to have to get checked out.

Anybody who tries to tell you any different does not know anything about automotive diagnosis and repair.

1999 nissan pathfinder wont start no spark

Try cleaning the mass air flow sensor. It's a sensor that is in the air tube from the filter to the throttle body. If it gets dirty it will send a no start signal to the computer.

Mya 04 gmc yukon wont start again , just got fixed the mech said it was an ecm fuse? but got it back an wasnt accelerating rite an now it wont start again??

U should have ur computer scanned to ascertain actual fault, is anything showing on the warning lights, there might be a faulty sensor (air-flow), also make sure fuel pump, n injectors are clean of any dirt. The air filter element must be clean as wel. Go ahead n check these out. Good luck.

1999 fire bird wont start

Sounds like a fuel problem, when was the last time the fuel filter was chg.? If that is not an issue, than a fuel pressure test is in order, It should have around 48 to 50 p.s.i.

Very difficult to start in the mornings


In the first instance. Unhook the air flow sensor and see if this make a difference. If it does your Mass Air flow sensor needs cleaning or replacing.

Try changing your airfilter and Spark plugs. I would also use some heavy duty injuctor cleaner in the fuel.
