Hey guys, was searching through the forums trying to find someone who went through the same issue I'm having which is trouble starting the car. If it's completely level, I have turn it over and feed it gas non-stop until it lights up. If I don't feed it gas, the starter just keeps going with no result. If the car is on an incline, that is the engine being elevated and the rear of the car lower, it starts up almost no problem, usually without having to feed it gas. About 2 out of 3 times that I start the car I can usually smell gas very strongly. As far as I know there's no issue with the fuel pump as once it is running, it runs without issue, no hiccups, no hesitations, although the lines/filter are rusted and will be replaced soon.
I found this thread: http://www.regalgs.o...haft +position
Kryptononly2 was having the same issue and suggested it may be the CPS. I then stumbled upon this article: http://www.1aauto.co...sensor-symptomsMy car is misfiring (cylinder 2 mostly, no SES code). It's not idling rough, although there MIGHT be decreased gas mileage, haven't really noticed. However a lot of what I've read regarding a bad CPS suggests that if the CPS was bad, it would be stalling a lot, which is isn't, and hasn't ever.
In that thread Marchi1 suggested shoving a paperclip into the connector of the fuel pump resistor. Can anyone shed some light on this and explain what might be going on?
