problem #3

Oct 292011


  • Automatic transmission
  • 216,332 miles


I recently just installed a fuel pump on my car and the only other problem wrong with it was that i needed an o2 sensor so after i replaced the fuel pump i realized that my car would not stay on for more than thirty seconds. Three months ago a brand new motor was installed so my motor only has about 10,000 miles on it and the transmission is in perfect condition i really can't imagine what this problem could be.

A foreign car expert has had my car in and out of his garage for 2 weeks - tried everything he knew including replacing the fuel pump - this problem popped up right after having the oil changed - in the morning, it might take 25 attempts until the engine finally turns over - after that, it usually starts on the first try but there is a little struggle to do so (does not fire off with authority)... HELP!!!
