If by adding fuel you can get it to run, then it is probably not getting fuel on its own.

My 1988 t-bird will not start. electric fuel pump is working and has spark. it is a 5.0 EFI.fuel comes from the bleeder valve as I try to start it but will not start. can spray starter fluid into intake...


Does the fuel spray out of bleeder or run out. Should spray out with a lot of pressure. Have you checked fuel filter? If its not spraying out good and not the filter i would replace the pump.

Engine turns over but it wont start.


Use a timing light on one of the plugs to check if there is spark, or hold the wire near the block and crank the engine looking for a spark. If there is spark spray some Quick Start into the intake. If the engine fires a few times it is a fuel problem.

While driving the other day my car suddenly shut off but fortunately I coaxed to the side of the road.


There so many cause for a car to just shut off. First thing you do is chec for spark. If no spark check for blown fuse. If there is spark check for fuel. Do this by spraying some starting fluid in the air intake. If it starts then dies then it is not getting fuel. The cause can be a fuel pump fuse, clogged fuel filter, or worst a bad fuel pump. If there is spark and there is fuel and it still wont start, check the timing. If timing is good and still wont start or it starts and then stops, then the exhaust is blocked. maybe by corrotion or something.

Try spraying starting fluid into the intake of the air cleaner while someone else starts the car. Continue spraying the starting fluid for about 15-20 seconds. If the car starts, more than likely your fuel pump is bad. Check your fuses, and make sure you are getting power to the fuel pump. jpwtruck@yahoo.com

88 fiero starts on it own, but wont stay running.


the brain is not sending the proper fuel pressure codes to the fuel rail to evenly distribute the fuel to the intake and fuel rail.
perform a fuel pressure test check on it ok? also run a diagnostic scan on it and see what codes come out.

1988 jeep 4.0 battery installed backwards now cranks but wont start


have you checked all ofyour fuses? usually when you hook up a battery backwads you end up blowing a fuse and or fry your alternator on older modeled vehicles as there is no protection for it.
