I have a similar problem. My mechanic, whom I trust, said I need a fuel pump. The problem with mine is the check valve, which is built into the fuel pump. The temporary solution, at least for a COLD engine, is turn the key to the first position 5 to 10 times to build up the pressure in the fuel line. You should hear the fuel pump running. DO this fairly quickly and then turn the key all the way to the start the engine. It works with mine. SanderDan wrote: > Basically, I start the car and dies.
