SOURCE: have to prime carburetor to start truck.

It is a good idea to replace the kit, and it is a matter of stripping the carb and taking note what you removed where and replacing with a new part. You should also check the spark plugs and timing. If the timing is out, the engine will also have difficulty starting.

SOURCE: my carb on my toy 86 pickup is not getting gas

something is clogged. Recommend rebuilding the carb. The rebuild kits usually come with instructions--enough to get you thru if you are handy. Or, you could just take the cover off the float bowl right there on the engine and see if you can find the clog. Especially check the jet(s) in the bottom of the bowl. Any more questions--let us know.

Engine stalled out,would not start, pour gas in carb,cranks,keeps running,until idle falls below 12to1500rpm,than stalls out again and will not crank,repeat gas or starting fluid in carb,cranks runs and...


This truck is fuel injected, the problem sounds like a weak fuelpump, it runs when you pour gas into it until that gas runs out, the first thing is to test the fuel preasure, if the pump is weak it may run with gas poured into it but wont idle, also a common problem is the coolant temp sensor and the ground wires to thermostat housing bolt but i wont bet its the pump inside the fuel tank, if you put a fuel gauge on it there should be at least 55-61 psi if its a few pounds lower it can cause problems, you have everything else and it runs with gas poured so its a fuel problem check the preasure, theres a valve up top on the fuel line to connect a fuel gauge to it, start there hope this is helpful.

My 1996 camaro rs wont start it ran fine the night before it kicks over starts really weak for a half second then dies


Replace the fuel pump relay
This will work for you
The fuel pumps prime comes from the third wire off the Oil Presure Switch
When oil pressure is achieved the computer shuts off that circuit and turns on the relay for the pump.It takes only a few seconds for the oil pressure to be achieved so that is why your engine dies out almost instantly
