These cars use CIS injection with several mechanical pressure controls that would be effected by old fuel. I agree that the injectors will need a cleaning at a minimum. Bosch has a cheap manual for CIS systems available online that will give you a better understanding of the system. If you are planning on working on this system yourself I would highly recomend getting a fuel pressure guage tester kit for CIS from a supplier like Pelican Parts and do your research.

I would go through your connections..but definetly get the injectors cleaned and new fuel filters...the fact that its been "stored" is never good news for the fuel system....hopefully its been run frequently during this time

My '99 chevy truck with 5,7L 350 will start but wont stay running. put new fuel pump and relay switch in


First you must determine if the fuel is stopping or the spark is stopping..If the fuel is stopping this could be a computer problem.. If the spark is stopping then it could be the IGN Module in the distributer. or any nomber of sensors. Squirt a little fuel directly into the Throttle body on the intake manifold.. If the truck runs longer its probably loss of fuel.. Do this several times to make sure, be careful and only use a small amounty of fuel.. you do not want a fire.. RE: Spark: Take a plug wire and an old plug..put the wire on the plug.. hold the plug against a good ground .. have someone crank the engine .. does the plug stop firing? The engine dies.. and will not restart for a minuet or so.. during this "no start" time do the plug test. If the plug will not fire during this time take the module out and take it to Orillys Auto parts.. They can test it.. really expensive part. Don't replace until you know it is BAD..

Car cranks but wont start


turn key to run position, do you hear a hum that stops after a few seconds? if not check fuel pump relay then the pump. have it scanned to see if you have crank sensor signal it tells your car to fire and add fuel.

2002 dodge ram starts for a few seconds then stops wont idle was running fine before


Fuel pressure would be a good place to start, check that, When you turn the key to the on position, the electric pump should run for a few seconds & build pressure.
Is the engine light on? If so run a scan and pull the codes.
After it dies and you try to restart, is it getting fire to the plugs? Let me know what you find.

Spray some ether into the throttle body or air intake and see if it is fuel related...If it wants to run at this point, something is not allowing the fuel to be delievered.At this point you will a least know in what direction to be looking.

Try the fuel injection relay they are located under the hood. They blow out every few years on my Volvo. The car starts to quit all of the sudden. It is either red or green colored. It is located in the fuse box under the hood.
