    Check to see if your ignition module is allowing what is called a 2 second fuel run .This can be done with a Noid light or just listening to the fuel pump to run for 2 seconds . If there is no noise check fuses under the hood and relays . replace Ignition module if there is no 2 second run and relays & Fuses are good . Good Luck .

SOURCE: help

Sounds like it needs a new fuel pump. Get a Fuel Pressure Gauge and check it make sure it up to the Specs,What I think is about 35 to 40 psi without looking in my book. Also you would want to make sure the fuel filter was changed, Your getting spark and fuel, But You stated your able to start it with starting fluid so I would say it must be a fuel pump problem.. I hope that help you out. If not get back to me and we can try some more trouble shooting. Take Care, Bear

Sounds like you need to take it in for a computer diagnostic. Check your fuel pressure and fuel volume.

SOURCE: anifreeze spraying out of my engine on drivers side

It has to be one of four things:

1. burst hose on radiator
2. hole in radiator
3. bad water pump
4. blown head gasket
You should be able to visually identify these by looking under the hood while the engine is running. If it is a water pump you should have heard a screeching sound prior to symptoms. If blown head gasket there will be water in your oil. Drain a little oil and see if it is creamy colored rather than black. If no antifreeze, you may see water floating on the oil.

PS- I thought of something else, it could be your radiator cap. When they go bad they let water escape.If it is spraying from behind your engine, it could be a heater hose burst. Oh yeah, if it is overheating before spraying it could be your thermostat.

Good luck,

Have an 2008 dodge grand caravan started it to warm up ran for a while then died every thing was dead changed alternater the battery was good turns over and acts like it wants to start but don't

Was the alternator bad or going bad. Changing that won't change it starting. Just charging to keep running. As I tell others you need 3 things to make it start and run. Good battery for the starter. Fuel and spark. Test for gas and spark are needed to know which is not working. Did you run it out of gas would be my first guess

Car ran out of gas and won't start

Two things - - one is it could take a very long time to pump the air out of the lines, and two, the pump may be fried.
The pump relay only provides power to the pump for 3 seconds of crank time. So you have to keep turning the key on and off. Also, the pump uses liquid fuel for lube and to keep cool. Running the tank dry can fry the pump.

Hi, I wonder if your blower has a short and is causing the battery to draw down. Do you have a voltmeter you could use to troubleshoot? I will look up the wiring diagram to see what I can figure out.
