#19 of 28 Starter problems 95 Corsica 2.2
Apr 13, 2008 (2:42 pm)
This makes the forth starter I've had to put on it in the past year. The solenoids keep going out. Has anyone else had this kind if problem? I've replace the battery, and battery cables. The last time I had to replace it in a Wal Mart parking lot, at night, in between rains. It doesn't take long to get the job done under those conditions.

I have had the same problem and I know what it may be. I have an 89 and when it rains sometimes the ignition modulator gets wet and no matter what you do it won't start. Then a couple days later or with a lot of prodding it will start again. We have learned to wait it out, rather than replace it. Lots of people (even mechanics) will say its the starter or the battery, it's actually just the modulator getting wet. You can water proof it with spray or you can just wait for it to dry off if youre cheap and lazy like us.

i have a 96 corsica and having problems with it starting. i have spark but the fuel pump doesnt run all the time. when it started doing this it would sputter then die and after 20 minutes or so it would start back up. but now it only starts when it wants. i need a direction to go to figure this out. to me it seems like the fuel pump is bad but when it does start it runs great

i already cut a hole under the back seat to get to the fuel pump but is it possible to remove the fuel lines so i can remove it or do i have to drop the tank ?

I gotta 89'Corsy H/B and that same thing happened to me. Checked each injector,found out in the end ,since my battery was dead I replaced it and I shoulda done the "idle learn breakin" to it. No more sputtering,and I also had to replace the electric fuel pump(hafta drop fuel tank and was very easy to replace. Hope any of these helped.

Thank you to the people who posted about spraying the spark plug wires and modulator. I did that this morning, (after I got through looking for another car) as a last result. The car started right up.
Does anyone else's car leak like the Titanic? What to do about that?
