2001 Eldorado Question

I used this board in the past and found it to be extremely helpful. I keep having an intermittent problem with the car not starting at various random times. The dealership can’t find anything wrong, but every so often when I turn off the engine and sit in the car for awhile, when I go to leave and start the car up again it will not turn over.

It’s not the battery, as everything else still has power. If I take the key out and wait a few minutes it usually starts right up. It happens most often when I remain seated in the car and stop for a short period of time. Sometimes when I stop to get gas, or stop to eat something quick.

I read my owners manual and thought it might be a security feature having to do with the keys or key fob, but the dealership says no. Any ideas of what could be causing this?

I hate that term because it means different things to different people, so lets clarify that. Do you mean it does not crank or does not start?

Another possibility (assuming that you mean cranks, but does not start) is a bad FPR. A FPR with an internal leak will cause hard hot starts, but usually start just fine when cold.

Also check your fuel pressure.
