My 94 Thunderbird won't start until like the 4th crank, then it runs like a champ. It acts like it isn't getting any fuel. Please help!

You may be right on your hunch.
The fuel pump gets power from the pump relay for 3 seconds when you turn the key on, then no power until the engine starts. If the fuel pressure is low it could take several trys to get the pressure up to normal and the engine start.
A mechanic would check the pump relay and the fuel pressure with a gauge before and after cranking the engine.

2002 Kia Sedona won't start. The battery & park

Hi Tara, It sounds to me as if you have damaged the voltage regulator in the alternator. When you disconnected the battery with the engine running and then increased the engine revolutions it is likely that the system overloaded and burned out the zena diode. It is not a good idea to check the charging system in that manner. If you need to do so for any reason, or if you are jump starting another vehicle, before disconnecting the leads from the battery, always turn on the head lights and the heated rear window. Doing this will minimize the probability of a voltage surge and consequential damage to the charging and other systems such as the electronic management units of your vehicle. Sorry to tell you this, but expect major problems and maybe a replacement computer among other items. Regards John

My kia 2001 starts pulling and dies slowly

Try a new or used mass air flow censer. You can get one for about $20.00 at any good wracking yard. Good luck!

2000 dodge durango acts like it's out of gas

Could be just the fuel filter. A common symptom of a failed filter is for it quit at higher speeds, then start again after a rest period. A partially-clogged filter is still under pressure when just stopped and bleeds through some fuel with time so it'll start again. If this happens, you may be able to limp home slowly and change that filter. BE CAREFUL if you've never done this before, the fuel is under high pressure, it can spray all over you. And if you've ever run the tank very low or completely out and kept cranking on it, you can burn up the fuel pump because it wants to be immersed in gas to keep it cool.... Good luck.

Won't start unless spray fuel change fuel pump did'nt help when it starts idel rough throtle up slowly it go about 3000 rpm start trying to die if you floor it from idel it will die but spray fuel...

Then its got to be a problem with the fuel delivery. You need to check that you're getting fuel from the tank.

1) Does fuel get to the filter? If not, is there an airlock or debris in the fuel pipe
2) Does fuel get past the filter? - If not, replace the filter.
3) I'm not sure if you have a carb. or injectors, but one or more of the injectors could be blocked. If a carb., fuel inlet jet may be blocked.
4) Finally, is the air filter good and clean.
