1993 acura LS won't start when i turn the key


It may be because the engine is not getting all the fuel it needs when the tank is low due to a faulty fuel pump or fuel injectors. More diagnostic tools for car @http://www.obd2express.co.uk

have the fuel pressure and volume tested with a gage.this sounds and acts like a fuel pump problem.check the fuel filter as well and replace anyways.when it won`t start but cranks can you hear the fuel pump running.listen at the fuel filler neck with the gas cap off.if you can`t listen under the car at the fuel tank you should hear it running/if not hit the gas tank and if the car starts then the pump needs replacing.you should check to make sure you are getting spark at the spark plugs to eliminate an ignition problem but i think its fuel.

Car sits for two-days or more have to pump peddle and crank for long time before starts. Sometimes it will sart faster if I crank and pump then turn off egnition then rtedo , it will start faster.....


If you car is a mid-1980's or newer it's fuel injected and pumping the pedal has no affect on it starting. A few causes are = clogged fuel filter, intermitent fuel pump activity [ pump, or relay ], faulty fuel pressure regulator, leak in system, etc. If you can hear the fuel pump run when you first turn on the igntion, then look for the filter or regulator problem. If there's a leak in the system then it may get air bound.

TRY THIS, LET YOUR WIFE GET IN THE CAR YOU GET DOWN CLOSE TO THE REAR OF THE CAR WHERE YOU THINK THE GAS TANK MITE BE. IT MUST BE QUIET GET YOUR WIFE TO TURN THE KEY TO ON NOT START WHEN SHE DOES YOU SHOULD HEAR THE FUEL PUMP RUN FOR A FEW SECONDS UNTILL IT BUILDS PRESSURE IN THE SYSTEM. TRY THIS A FEW TIMES TO MAKE SURE. IF YOU HEAR NO SOUND OF SOME THING HUMMING OR RUNNING YOU GUESS IS RIGHT. THIS IS THE QUICKIST AND CHEAPIST WAY TO CHECK A FUEL PUMP

89 regal won,t start but after 5 or 10 min. runs great


sounds like your fuel pump is going out. One thought might be that the fuel filter is causing enough resistance to over heat the pump. I would check the fule pressure to determine a free flow of fuel.
