If possible remove the intercooler and remove the fuel line. place a bottle over the fuel line and have someone turn on the key and see if fuel comes out. If fuel comes out I would check fuel pressure on the fuel rail. Set pressure 3.5 bar. if all checks out then try replacing injectors.

Where do I spray starter fluid in an 05 chrysler pacifica..ran out of gas and hoping it will start with the spray..did put gas in


Remove the air intake from the air filter container to the throttle body. Use only a quick shot of starting fluid. Can you hear the fuel pump run? Power cycling the key should get fuel flowing and is safer than starting fluid.

Seems like out of gas but has gas but wont start.


Spray starter fluid into intake, if it starts then stops again, you have a fuel problem. If it still won't start you have a spark problem

My car has been sitting for 2 years and won't start. The engine turns over but it sounds like not getting gas. I read somewhere to spray gas starting inside air intake valve. Where is the air intake v


Safer is to use 'carburetor cleaner' which is also flammable but a little less dangerous than using gasoline.After sitting a long time, our modern gasoline gets tired; never allow something to sit so long without adding some 'fuel stabilizer.'If possible with your car, I would drain (siphon) the tired gas out and replace it with a few gallons of fresh.
Really tough starting problems can also be overcome with 'starting fluid' which is pure ether and very flammable.Any of these may require the removal of the engine air filter so the liquid gets into the intake manifold.
Stale gasoline can also gum up the fuel injectors which may have to be removed for service if none of the fluids causes the engine to fire.

Car will not start. It seems to be fuel related because if you try to start it and pump the gas it wants to start.


try this, take the air box tube off of the intake assembly and spray starting fluid in while trying to crank(do not spray too much) if it starts up then it is the fuel pump, if it does not repost and we will help you from there

Engine will not run, seems like it is not getting gas?


Spray carb spray or starter fluid into intake hose then try to start. If starts then suspect fuel pump and or fuel pump relay. If does not start check spark. Pull off spark plug wire and ground to metal make sure no fuel is present and be careful not to spark yourself, crank car while grounding out wire if no spark suspect coil, fuse, ignition control module, crank sensor, wiring, or computer.

Car will crank but will not start


First check you are getting spark to plugs. If yes check for fuel. You can spray starting fluid in intake when you pull off intake rubber hose that sits on top of engine. If you start momentarily you have fuel problems. Turn key forward just where its left after you start. Listen for fuelpump to whine back by gas tank filler. If no noise most likely fuelpump. Always change fuel filter right after its install.
