SOURCE: 1996 2.2 liter. Starving for fuel

There are a few other things taht could be causing fuel starvation. First of all, did you pull the injectors and clean out the individual filters? There are small, conical screens inside the top of each injector, and they could be clogged. Second, There could be some carbon build-up on the intake valves, which would act like a sponge for the fuel after initial start-up. A can of BG44K fuel system cleaner from NAPA will get rid of that. If it is neither of these, the fuel pressure regulator could be leaking. Other than this, the car would need to be diagnosed by a shop before action is taken. I hope this helps you!

Testimonial: "I ended up taking the car to a local shop for diagnosis. It turns out that the fuel pump is week and not supplying enough pressure to the motor. "

I'd guess: not enough fuel flow. could be a fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel pressure regulator. No check engine codes? I would think there should be some that would help diagnose.

Why when i poor gas in carb it runs and then a few mins later dies


Test the fuel pressure, if it's low or non existant, you have a bad fuel pump, fuel pump regulator, or clogged fuel filter. That car has a throttle body, not a carburetor. All fuel injected cars have throttle bodies

Make sure your fuel pump is kicking on. When you turn the key to on, you should hear it buzzing for a second or two. Being that you changed the fuel filter and it started, this might be your problem.

Came to a stop. My van suddenly started idling hard and then the engine died and would not restart. It cranks but will not fire up. Could it be the fuel filter or pump? It was running fine and the problem...


It very well could be. You need to check to see if your vehicle is getting gas. You can spray engine started into the carb. If it starts and then dies, you have a fuel problem. You can also use gas. When a fuel pump kicks on, you a hear a wzzzz sound or buzz, for a second or two. You might have to open the gas tank cap to hear it. If you do, it is kicking on. If you are getting gas, it could be other things. Check all your fuses too. A bad fuse can cause this. I know how it feels to be broke down, this is why I try to help fast as I can. Hope this helps you.

While idling it began to sputter and died. It is


Replace the fuel filter. Have someone listen at the gas cap while you turn the ignition on without starting the engine. They should hear the fuel pump for a few seconds. If you hear nothing then either the fuel pump is bad, fuse is blown, or the fuel pump relay is bad. If you hear the pump it still may be defective and weak. A fuel pressure test will verify this.

Check the exhaust compression. Remove the O2 sensors before the cataylic converts and see if it improves. If it does that means your cats are cloged and need to be replaced.
