problems restarting car


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, im new to the forums, just recently picked up a 93 del sol si...automatic though (couldnt pass on the price). The car drives great however theres 1 problem that i cant figure out: when you start the car it starts fine, but if you turn off the engine and in a short period of time turn it back on, sometimes the car will turn on, but half a sec later it chokes and dies. Only happens sometimes but it sucks when your at a gas station and theres people waiting for you to get outta there. I usually let it sit for like a min, then i give it some gas when i start it up, revv it a lil until its ok at idle then take off. Any suggestions? Fuel system cleaner didnt do anyting. Maybe new fuel filter?

Hey girl, recently had this prob with my 93 Si of 5 years. Problem is common, its the main relay. If you don't want to pay a lot, get someone to easily solder back together the connections. Here are the instructions: www.markl.f9.co.uk/howto/electrical/main-relay/main-relay.htm


I'm getting mine done tommorrow, it won't start at all right now! Hope this helps.
