Yes gas should be coming out of the fuel line at the motor. if not the pump is bad. you will need to drop the tank to get to it as it is in the tank

Car has been sit up for a year. Changed fuel filter, and plugs. Checked to verify fuel at the injector manifold. Car still will not start.


Hi Troy, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Troy, sense the vehicle sat for a year, the first thing I'd do is go to AutoZone and get a can of "Starting Fluid", see if the engine will start by spraying it into the "Throttle Body" OR "Carb" depending on the year model. If it starts with the starting fluid this means the gas has gone bad and you'll need to drain the tank and put new gas in it. NOTE: If it still does not start, then you'll need to find out what the engine is lacking. Does it have spark at the spark plug wire? Does it have Gas at the Fuel Rail? Does it have compression. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Hi my Mitsubishi Starion 1985 will not start,i ran it out of gas, then i added a full tank and it still will not start. I pulled the fuel line at throttle body no gas gets to the motor. we hear the fuel...


sounds like there is air in the line put your hand over the air inlet on the throttle body and get some one to turn the engine over the extra compresion or sucksion should make the fuel come through if not take off the fuel pipe as it goes into carb or injector and **** the fuel through not to hard though as you will get a mouth full of fuel hope this helps

2000 nissan maxima engine hesitation problems


Has your Nissan sat for a period of time? If so, could be dirty gas...try adding 2 bottles of Heet gas line antifreeze and injection cleaner..also as this works, be sure not to let the gas level go below 1/4 tank...If needed check air filter dirty...throttle body dirty...Hope this helps.

1987 chevy with Throttle Body... You literally have to put it to the floor to get it to start, then it'll run nice for a while thinking it'll run take it for a drive and it will shortly die on


Check all fuel lines for leaks, make sure it doesn't have bad gas in it. Listen for fuel pump when key is turned on. Change fuel filter. See if that's helps.

Car sat 3 years, tried to start. Had to replace fuel filter, still not getting fuel.


Did you check to make sure fuel is getting as far as the filter? Detach the fuel line at the filter and have someone crank the engine. If fuel doesn't get to the end of the line you've got a clog somewhere else or there's a break in the fuel line.

Back fire while driveing


check for vacuum leaks at your throttle body, intake manifold gaskets and vacuum line, or you could possibly have a sticking valve. if I am understanding you rite the truck sat for 2 years. also check the wiring to your sensors as for a rodent may have chewed some insulation off, this happened to my sons car.
