2009 Cobalt SS Cranks a While, Fires, then Dies Immediately.
So I picked up a 09 SS with 90k on it today and it's not running. I'm just trying to do a little self diagnosis before I break down and take it in to a shop. I charged up the battery and started giving it some cranks.
First off, is it normal that the thing keeps cranking after you let off the key and the clutch is still pushed in?
After a few short attempts and cranking I decided to crank the hell out of it for about 15-20 seconds. It was cranking kind of slow, then it started to speed up and eventually it fired for about a second then died. I repeated that a few times, it fires but won't keep running.
Perhaps a dead fuel pump? How do i check the fuel pressure on this thing?
It's not giving me any codes, but it did have a dead battery for months, they may not have populated yet since I just charged it.
