Accelerator pump in the carburetor might be worn out. See if it shots gas into the carburetor when you pump the accelerator.

You might need to check the voltage regulator that was the problem with mine and that solved it for 15$ and saved the car

I bought a 97 Toyota camry with a bad motor an a good motor came with it I installed it the car will nt start unless u jump the starter relay an when u put it in neutral the car dies every time u start it...


can you supply the engine numbers. engines can be the same from some years but the electrics can be of a different type 97 is on borderline when they changed the ecu and sensors. your ecu would read everything as normal but will not start. if you swap over the sensors from the old engine to the new engine it should work after this. as long as no sensor problems are on the old engine. check the part numbers and change the ones that are a different number to you old engine. there will be a few the same but most will have changed there number like cam crank and maf and prob knock sensors

THE MOTOR CRANKS BUT WONT START EVEN WHEN I PUT GAS IN THE CARB (NOTHING) THE FUEL PUMP HUMMS AND SOUNDS FINE BUT IT WONT START EVEN WITH STARTER FLUID OR GAS IN THE CARB /IT JUST DIED ON ME WHILE...


Possible that the cylinder is flooded and so it will be best to remove the PLUGS and flush by cranking out the excess fuel. Now test the GAP on the plugs, reset to specification.
Also check the spark intensity. If low check the coils and HT wires.

1987 Ecoline van V-8 engine hasn't been started in about 7 years. It ran good before that. What do I have to do first to start it and get it running?


I would change all the fluids and either try dry gas or i would recommend that the gas tank be thoroughly drained and new gas put in the tank.If you have a hard time getting started try to use starter fluid in carburetor or if you have none just use gas. If the vehicle is equipped with fuel injectors locate air filter and follow air duct to engine that is where starter fluid or gasoline will have to be pored to prime the injectors.if it don't start the engine should be tuned up with a major tune up replace all filters ect even if it starts without tune up i would tune it up asap!

I have to use starter fluid to get my truck running and than when running it will die in idle and not restart without adding more starter fluid? what can i do?


It sounds like it's not getting fuel. Are you in a cold climate? The gas line could be frozen. You can check the fuel pump by disconnecting the gas line at the carb, you may want to put a length of hose on the line and catch the gas in a coffee can. Then have someone crank the engine while you watch to see if gas squirts out of the line. I wouldn't use too much starting fluid, you can damage your engine, pour a little gas in the carb instead. Also, on a truck of that age the gas line could have a hole rusted in it between the tank and the fuel pump. If that's the case the pump will not pull the gas out of the tank it will draw air instead. It could be the fuel pump itself. If you have a good stream of gas to the carb then the problem is in the carb. It could be the needle valve is stuck shut, take a screwdriver and lightly tap on the carb, that will sometimes jar the needle loose. If you have gas to the carb it could also be clogged jet inside the carb. I you hold the choke partialy closed will it stay running then?

Stalling everytime when pulling over to stop


there are 2 things that will cuase this problem, one is a leaking Exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR for short), this is very common, the other is the carb has dirt in it and needs an overhaul.
