Turns over but wont start pumps fuel into lines but not engine will start if fuel is poured into moror but only long enough to burn fuel poured in


This sounds like fuel injection, is it? Or I think you would have said if it was a carburetor. But if fuel injection, it is the pump and the fuel filter's job to put fuel under pressure in the lines and up to the engine, or really to the injectors. If you have fuel pressure in the line, then you have fuel pressure to the injectors. (If not, check the fuel filter.) And then, it is the injector circuit's job to put the fuel into the cylinders.

Just first be sure the fuel pressure is correct. For throttle body injection, that resembles a carburetor somewhat-the injectors are in the throat, the required pressure is usually around 13-20 psi. But if you have multi-port injection, the pressure requirement is much higher, usually 40 psi or more, sometimes as much as 60 psi. If it is carbureted, though, it takes very low pressure, 5-7 psi, and you would need to check if the gas is actually getting inside the carb and filling the fuel bowl inside.

But back to the injector circuit: every injector has only two wires to it: a power wire and a ground wire. The power wire is constant voltage to the injector as long as the key is in run, or on, or in start. The injector is an electrical solenoid, and it gets the power on one side, and when the ground wire is grounded internally in the engine computer, the solenoid is energized, a fuel passage opens, and the injector sprays fuel out. This is called the injector pulse, it only happens for a split second. But you see why the injector must have fuel under correct pressure to shoot the right amount of gas into the engine. You can check the injector circuit, both power side and ground side, with just a simple test light. Post back if you want that, I can give you the procedure. Good luck, and probably good night.

WHY WONT THE RAM FIRE UP?


I'm going to assume this is a Dodge truck.
Are the injectors getting power and a ground signal from the computer ? Do you have normal fuel pressure ?

My chevy s10 2001 turns over but does not start its not getting gas to injectors


Well you need fuel to the injectors, a spark, compression, air and a signal to the injectors to fire for the engine to start.
So if you've got fuel, make sure you have spark to the plugs, the air filter is not clogged, compression is above 120, and the crank and cam positions sensors are good.
