I have 1987 Mazda B2200 2.2 ltre, turns, fires, no fuel psi.

I have 1987 Mazda B2200 2.2 ltre, carb, w/electric fuel pump. Its turns over, sparks, and does not get fuel. New pump installed, no signal (12VDC) to 3 pin connector going to tank. Can not locate fuel pump control box or any sort of inertia device. Do Not have wiring schematics to determine fuel sytsem devices and locales. Can you help me out here? Thanks...Thomas

    Thanks for the reply. Your suggestion was a good one, but I am afraid this beyond simply chosing a relay. I cant find the relay or device inwhich controls the fuel pump. Therein, what device is it. The easy ones have already been determined not as players. The Haynes/Chiltons all speak of a fuel pump control box....and or a fuel cut off switch..None of which this vehicle has. Its a complete mystery.

    I assume this vehicle is serviced and has had it's fuel filter changed

I had something like this before. There is a fuel saftey switch near the gas tank right by the rear end. Its a roll over sensor and mine fell off the mount and I guess the truck thought it was upside down :)

Fuel pumps are not working fires up if u spray start fluid in carb

It would greatly help to know make, model, and year, but in general you check fuel pump pressure with a gauge, and if the pump is electric, it always has a relay so there is the ability to have a safety cut out. Some vehicles use lack of oil pressure to cut out the pump relay, but most use the alternator output. Fuel injection usually has from 20 to 40 psi fuel pressure, and carb systems from 3 to 10 psi.

1987 cheverolet camaro will not start. Replaced a but load of parts...good spark , computer is new and working , fuel pump is new and working , distributor new and working , throttle position sensor new...

I think I would be looking at the crank angle sensor and/or the cam sensors on this vehicle.It seems to me the engine isn't getting the signal to fire up.What happens when you squirt some fuel into the combustion chamber ? If it fires up I would be looking at cleaning the injectors.If it doesn't fire up What's the pressure on the fuel rail. does it have a buy pass pressure valve on the rail.Some suggestions good luck

1996 4.3 wont start. Turns over, Spark OK, fuel 55psi

Fuel pressure is a little low. Will it start with a couple shots of carb spray in the throttle body? If it does and continues to run than the fuel pump is not providing enough pressure to to open the mechanical poppet valves on the end of the injectors. minimum fuel pressure is 58 psi. One PSI below spec is enough to make it not start.

Also check to make sure there is spark at each cylinder. just because there is spark at the ignition coil does not mean it is getting the the spark plugs. you may have a bad cap or a rotor that is burned through.

Car runs but as soon as I turn it off it doesnt turn back on.

Hello, when you have this sort of problem, what you have to do is determine if it is fuel or ignition related. It could be either or both. If you have a carburetor, you can check to see if the accelerator pump is squirting fuel into the carb body when you actuate the throttle. This signifies that the bowl is full and fuel is getting to the carb. If its not, you know its a fuel problem (stuck float, needle valve, bad fuel pump, etc). Sometimes intermittent fuel pump problems occur due to an electrical short in the fuel line to the pump in the tank (for fuel injected models). On carb equipped models the fuel pump runs off of the cam on the back top side of the engine. You could put a fuel pressure guage on it to see if you are getting the proper 33.6 psi. If not, that would indicate an underperforming fuel pump.
On the Festivas, its common that the wire going to the distributor becomes frayed or insulation cracked and it can cause intermittent spark problems. This is why when the car won't start, you need to check immediately if there is good spark or not with a spark tester. If spark is good, check the fuel pressure when cranking. Another thing you can do is spray 'starting fluid' in the carb or intake to see if that makes the car start or try to fire. If it does, you will know that you have found the problem and its fuel related.

On cold days the engine quits, after driving 1 mile

Distributor Ignition Pickup may be defective, these are sensitive to temp changes, they will cause a loss of spark..
