Question about 1991 Chevrolet Corsica

Open Question

Not getting gas to the engine

My car died while driving it yesterday. I've narrowed it down to it not getting gas to the engine. I don't, however, know how to find the fuel filter, or take it apart, or heaven's forbid, the fuel pump.

SOURCE: my car won't start

Turn the key on and listen for the 2 second prime of the fuel pump. It's that same humming sound you've heard every time you turned the key up until now. Get a friend to turn it and listen from the trunk or under the tank. If no hum, the pump is bad. Same thing happened with my 03 Malibu with 57k miles. Mileage isn't the issue though, it was the faulty gas gauge that led me to run it bone dry out of gas. This causes the fuel pump to overheat and die when you repeatedly try to restart it. I had to disconnect, drain & drop the tank and replace it with a used model. Yes, used parts of this nature CAN be useful and reliable for about 20% of the new part cost. I got mine on eBay with a 30-day warranty for about 50 bones, works great. New part - $289.00. BONUS- the fuel filter is only 6.99, may as well replace it since you're disconnecting lines anyway. Can't miss it during the tank drop procedure.

SOURCE: i have a 1993 s10 blazer 4.3l 6cyl cpi. this truck

I had the same problem in my 91' s10 blazer. Drain the tank, then put about 5 gallons of premium gas. After that put fuel system cleaner and sea foam in the tank. Let it sit their for about an hour. try to crank up the car (you might have to put gas right on the carb until the gas in the tank gets to the engine). If that dose not work you might want to take it to a shop and have them clean the fuel system by hand. It might also be the fuel sensor. I hope this helped also up date us on other problems and if any of our suggestions have helped.

SOURCE: gas not getting to engine

sounds like your fuel pump, normally fuel pumps die gradually not just like that, so best check fule pump fuses first, also i can not remeber if these have a fuel cut off switch, this is normally located arround the fire wall it looks like a red or black rubber button, if you have one you can press that and see if that sorts it, if not then it more than likley is the fuel pump and will possibly need replacing, but check the other things first, better a new fuse than a new pump...hope that helps a bit

My 93' Dakota keeps dieing when I come to a stop. It does not do it every time ~ just now & then. The only way I can get it to start is to hold the gas pedal all the way down & turn the ke

Okay, I'm guessing you have a 4-clyinder Dakota has throttle body fuel injection. I have seen this kind of problem before, but I could be way off base. Are you getting really lousy gas mileage as well? If the coolant sensor fails to the ECM, the ECM will think that the coolant temperature is very low and cause a massive amount of fuek to be injected into the intake (think of the old-style choke with fast idle). This causes the engine to flood and die. Restarting requires the gas pedal to be on the floor (clear flood) mode. Driving at speed may not be noticeable, but there may be some lack of power as the engine is still getting way too much fuel. TGo test this, do the following. When the engine is acting up and is warm, gain access to the throttle body by removing the air box over it. Have someone crank the engine while observing the throttle body injector. A normal, warm engine will spray a fine mist on the walls of the throttle body and will hum slightly. If there is a torrent of fuel being sprayed into the engine, then check your coolant sensor circuit for the ECM.

As you have probably figured out by now, you will have to treat it as a no start and troubleshoot it when it fails to start. Until you figure out if you are loosing spark or fuel to the injectors when the engine dies you have no direction to go in.

I have a craftsman weedwacker, I don't know how to

Most weedwackers are 2 cycle (stroke) engines, meaning the gas and oil are mixed together before you pour it into the gas tank. If it's a 4 cycle engine it appears there is no dip stick or convenience way to check the oil, you can only replace it. Here's a youtube video that may help.

Car won't start new battery spark plugs check gas tank

Sounds like you have replaced a number of different parts all dealing with different aspects of how a car can run. The first thing I would do before replacing anything else is to find out the source of the problem. Like are you getting fuel yo the injectors? do you have good fuel pressure? Are you getting spark to the spark plugs? stuff like that to narrow down the problem. You need 2 main things for an engine to run, Gas and GOOD spark. You also need airflow but an engine will kind of run if that is limited. I would like to help you so you don't buy anymore parts you don't need. I am an ASE certified master technician and I own a repair shop in Florida. Feel free to email me at Let me know the make, model & year of your vehicle, what you have done so far and why you decided to do those things. Also is it turning over (spinning) when you try to start it? What you have checked yourself as far as fuel or spark. I say this because you went from spark plugs to battery to gas tank which are all different aspects of the engine starting or running so i think if we could narrow it down a bit with some test to start to diagnose it, then i bet we could get you going. I have helped a lot of people this way and enjoy helping. I don't charge for it so there would be no cost. So I look forward to hearing from you and please be detailed as to any questions or answers so I can help better. Wish I could say just do this and it would be fixed but need to work on what the problem is first and then go from there.

the most common problem next is the crank sensor. use a heat light to warm up the sensor to see if it is that. by using a heat light you can narrow down what part has the temperature glitch. Don't forget to try the engine computer.
