Car is having problems starting. The problem occurred the first time 3 weeks ago. The engine would turn over, but wouldn’t fire. I changed out the spark plugs, and the ignition coils. Same result. I took out the Camshaft Position Sensor, as I read that could cause problems too. It looked dirty so I cleaned it and re-installed it. When I did this, I did have the negative battery cable unplugged for 10 minutes. I put the cable on and it fired right up. No check engine light, no wierd engine noises.
Now, 3 weeks later, I put new LED strip lights in, so working with electronic equipment, I removed the negative cable. After I was done, I put the cable back on…and now it won’t start again…seems to be the same problem… so my question is…
Could my sensor be bad?
Could my fuel pump be going? I have never run out of gas. Car has 86k milage. Right now I am leaving the negative cable off for the night and I will go out in the am and see if it starts. What could be causing this issue?
