Please clarify what you're trying to say here. When you say "stops right away", that implies it has started. Is that true? If yes, how does "right away" relate in time to your releasing the key from the "start" position?
Sorry, I'm not doing a good job of describing the sequence, and my attempt at recording the audio didn't work out so well.
So I get in the car, turn the key to start, hear the starter and it sounds like the engine starts, but as soon as I release the key from the "start" position the engine dies (within a half second). No warning lights or any indication of trouble (except in "acc" position, where a number of lights display - but I believe this is normal).
Friends have suggested fuel issues, and to check and/or replace the fuel filter. The car sat with a nearly full tank of gas for about 5 months.
It was suggested that I first check fuel line pressure before replacing anything else, and I understand that I'm looking for a schrader valve on the fuel line which I should open/bleed out first, then turn the key to "acc" a few times to get the fuel pump to pump fuel and re-pressurize the system.
I should then check the valve again to verify the system is pressurized. I guess if it re-pressurizes then the fuel pump is working, and depending on the valve's location on the fuel line, perhaps even the filter is fine (if the valve is between the fuel filter and engine). I know that the fuel filter is supposed to be located under the engine air filter assembly, and I've removed that once to splice the chewed-up wiring, so I'm comfortable going that far.
I don't know where the fuel line schrader valve is, and my google searches so far have been fruitless. I'll have to try and dig up a repair manual or do a visual inspection when I get home tonight.
Thanks for any additional information or advice you might have.
