Default Trouble turning over!

Ok THis seems to happen to me after i drive hard or run for awhile or park on an uphill. I'm not sure what to do we already replaced the intake or whatever with that problem of hydrolocking but now its doing this. I have a 1997 SE L36 with 209 000 km and we just did the water pump.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Are you trying to tell me that no one on this board knows or can't take a stab at it!

need......more......details.......

Try this, dont imediatly try and start the car.... just turn the key to "ON" and let the fuel pump prime/run for a sec. Then try....

Otherwise check the fuel pressure, (to make sure the pumps working well)

But thats about the extent of my knowledge.... maybe once you give us more specifics the more mechanicly inclined of this forum will help you...

If your car were hydrolocked, it would be just that.....locked up. When my car did that, it was so stuck that the starter shattered when it tried to turn an unturnable engine.

Does your engine still turn over and start? It just turns slowly???? If so, the first thing I would suspect is the battery and its connections. Hot engines/cables/batteries create conditions that expose those issues.

If those are all topnotch, my next step would be to evaluate the starter, as it may be in the beginning stages of its DeathSpiral.

I doubt that the uphill part of your diagnosis has any bearing on your problem as current doesn't know whether it'* flowing uphill or down.

Glad to hear it. Then your trouble starting just was the fuel taking a bit to get to the engine. If you always prime without starting first, it should start right up...

P.*. YAY! I finally knew enough to help someone.... :o
