    you could start from your tank. trace the line which you think goes to the engine. the fuel pump could be inside the tank so you would suppose to hear a motor running as you turn the ignition key to the on position. then it would pass to a fuel filter. check the line coming in if there is fuel then insert it back to the filter then check the line that came out of the filter. if there is no gas, then you have a clogged filter. replace it right away.

    tnx again 4 using fixya,

I have a 87 4x4 pathfinder with new plugs, fuel filter, cap and wires. Started missing and eventually stopped running. After an hour it started and ran fine for a while and started missing again. Ha


Do you know for sure if you are loosing fuel or spark when it stops running ? Is the fuel pump loosing power ?
Are you smelling gas from inside the cabin ?

It could be your fuel injectors that are clogged up. Get them cleaned and it should start. Hope this helps, James Booth

Old '87 ranger been sitting in folks yard few years. fires up fine, but spits and sputters going down the road


Old fuel in tank, fuel filter clogged, plugged/clogged carb. or fuel injectors.

1. Drain fuel from tank and replace with new fuel with SeaFoam or Lucas

2. Repace fuel filter

3. With engine running at a high idle and air cleaner off, spray or pour carb/fuel injection cleaner into carb/fuel injectors.

If problems persist, check plug wires for cracks and/or breaks. Pull spark plugs checking for fouling.

87 Subaru GL Carb/AT. The car starts well and idles. The problem is I have no power going up hills. Flooring it, I go 30-35. I can put the car in nuetral and rev it all the way up so it's not a clogged...


I would change the fuel filter anyway. Fuel filter problem manifest under a load usually. It is easy to do and cheap. This will eliminate one possible cause for your lack of power. Another reason may be your timing. If it pings going up hill also, you can ****** the timing a couple of degrees and/or try some fuel additive or higher octane gas or octane booster.

I have an 87 samurai that has been sitting for about 8 months-ish. i started it maybe a couple times a month till i had the money to replace the rearend/transfer. now that its back together, it will start...


best guess is carb. try some sea-foam in the fuel tank and never let a carb. set with ethanol fuel alwise add some stay-bil to the tank if your going to have to let it set.

87 Pathfinder V-6 Engine turns over but does not start.


That could be a few things but we need to find out if it is fuel related or electrical related. A quick way to find out if its fuel related is to spray some starter fluid in the breather for 3 seconds. If it starts and go dead it is fuel related. Do this test a couple of times and you should get the same results. It should runs a few seconds and then go dead.. Fuel related issues means fuel pump and filter needs to be changed. and some times fuel pressure valve. Try this first Good Luck!!!

1991 Nissan PathFinder will not start. The battery is fully charged.


Check for spark. Pull a plug and ground it DO NOT HOLD IT WITH YOUR HAND. Then have someone turn the motor over as you watch.

Assuming that's good, check the fuel system. It could be a clogged filter, a stuck (float bowl) needle valve in the carburetor, bad fuel pump, or water in the tank/carb.
