View Full Version : 2.2 L Auto Trans No Start

On a 2003 Alero 2.2 liter automatic:

Car was driven 10 miles and parked. After 3 hours, engine would crank but not start. No sound from fuel pump, no fuel pressure at rail. Car was towed home, would not start next day. Then towed to a shop the day after, sat all night. It started up and idled smoothly the next morning at the shop.

It had shown an SES the day it would not start, for O2 sensor, but not showing any codes now.

It has also had an ongoing problem with the fuel level sensor, fuel cleaner was put in the tank last year and it helped a bit. But I don't think that's likely to be related to the no start issue.

So this is intermittant, and I need to know statistically what happens most often to cause this.

Corrosion under the underhood block is where I'd start. Pull it out and turn it over to have a good look. Other than that, Id be looking at the relay its' self
