SOURCE: wont stsrt

sounds very much like the coolant temp sensor
, this tells the pcm that the engine is cold, sometimes they fail and tell the pcm the car is at -40 degrees, the pcm then tries to compensate by keeping the injectors open for too long flooding the engine. the part is inexpensive, and normally easy to replace. It can be checked with a scan tool, or a volt/ohms tester,

Mine had a similar problem, there is a wire that goes from the computer to the fuel rail and this wire sends info on how much fuel and when to inject the fuel... if that wire is grounding out then this will cause the lack of cylinders to fire and also explain the inconsistency. So i would start with the fuel rail..hope this is of some help

SOURCE: Little to no injector pulse only when starter is engaged

95-97 Maximas had a problem where condensation from the A/C would accumulate in the a/c evaporator case from the drain becoming restricted or blocked, When this would occur, condensation would drip onto the ECM and a problem would develop with misfire and/or starting. I would look at the ECM where the harness connects to it for corrosion problems. If you find it, there is a chemical spray which can be used to clean the terminals and/or you can clean them, although it is time consuming and difficult to due because of how small the terminals are. After things are cleaned up, lightly coat the connections with a dielectric grease. This will prevent electrolysis.I believe you can buy these at Radio shack and possibly at an automotive parts supplier.
Also a drop in voltage during the cranking phase will cause a weak spark. Your ignition is what pulses the injectors. It takes a minimum of 9.6 volts, but ideally you want at least 10.5 or more during the cranking phase if you want to get a spark worth anything. Check the voltage on the primary side of the coil while cranking the engine.
I'll watch to see if things work out for you, let me know. ....mybunkey

My fuel injectors are not spraying fuel. I have replaced fuel pump and fuel pump holder and fuses. Could it be a bad O2 sensor? I have a 1988 gmc s15 pickup truck.

Have you checked your fuel injectors? They should be pulsing, not streaming. They could be stuck open or full of dirt. Also your fuel pressure regulator could be providing too much pressure. Is the wiring to each injector correct?

Hi I have a 2004 mustang gt and we change the fuel pump and fuel filter and then we check the injectors with a tester and bank 1234 on the passenger side is out and 5678 on the left side is on and ain't no...

Sounds like the power splice to bank one is lost. By injection tester, do you mean a noid light?

Do you understand how the fuel injection circuit works? When the ignition key is in the on position, all of the injectors will have constant battery voltage applied to them. Bank 2 (#'s 5,6,7,8) is good- they are all pulsing. The same power wire is spliced to all 8 injectors. The other wire at each injector is the ground wire, and each ground wire goes separately into the engine computer to be internally grounded for a split second. That is the pulse of the injector, and is when it sprays fuel into the cylinder.

So think about it. Your 5,6,7,8 is working right, but 1,2,3,4 are not pulsing. Not likely 1234, all 4 separate ground wires, just went bad like that. More likely that 1234 not getting voltage to them through that common hot wire. You can check it real fast: check for voltage on any injector connector on bank 1, with the key in ON. The inj. connector only has two wires, a power and a ground wire. One of them should be hot in on. If no power on bank 1 injectors, trace it back to the engine harness. Somewhere, the power wire will splice off between bank 1 and bank 2.

Cylinder 2 and 3 being flooded with fuel

Unplug the injectors and hook up a test light .turn key on and see if the test light is fully bright if it is then you have a bad computer. The computer controls the ground side of the injectors

Where is the fuel injector driver circuit? 1995 cadillac fleetwood 5.7

It is the ground side of the injector, one side is hot and one side gets grounded by the ECM to open and close the injector, this is called the "pulse" Do you have 12 volts at one side of injector with key on?

1986 throttle body injector floods cylinders when key on. nissan 720 pickup

Maybe the injector is shorted out. At any rate it sounds like it is stuck open. You can do an ohm test of the injector, check it's resistance, but I don't know the value you need to look for on this. Just to give you a range to look for, a Chrysler injector's resistance should be 12-15 ohms. Yours should show low resistance as well. If it's open (no value at all) or if the resistance is very high (high ohms reading), it is bad.

In reference to the last statement in your post, no signal will keep it from flooding. An injector is a solenoid and normally closed. The only way to open them is to complete the circuit across their terminals. As long as the key is on, the injector will have a steady 12 volt current available to the injector on the power side. To pulse them or cause them to open, the ecu will ground the circuit for a split second, energizing the solenoid, and causing it to raise the pintle on the injector for fuel to spray out. The ecu will just keep on its merry way, pulsing the injector over and over, never realising the engine is flooded. If it's flooding with the injector connector disconnected, the injector must be stuck open.
Hope this helps you solve it. Good luck.

1997 Jeep Cheerokee does not have fire to spark plugs

Have you checked the injector harness for a proper injector pulse? The ECM pulses the ground circuit to fire these and if there is a short in that ground wire the injector will stay open all of the time, effectively flooding that cylinder.

If it has spark, fuel, and even compression, it has to have integrity with the valve train. If you can pull the valve cover off, turn the engine over by hand to make sure that the vales appear to fully open. You can compare them to the other cylinders. It could have a flat lobe on the cam. A compression test wouldn't necessarily pick that up because the cylinder would still compress whatever air is still in it.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1995 gs 300. The injectors sometimes will add to much fuel n cause the car to shut off n flood. I have to do a flood clear to get it started again. I have had two mechanics run diagnostics but it...

The injectors open and close to feed fuel to cylinders based on data they receive from various censors. If the wrong info is fed to the ecm, this results in the injectors opening too long or too short what ever the case may be. Check out all of the sensors involved in feeding the ecm - Example: if there is a cold start sensor that is not working properly too much fuel will get in there and ......................
