If the starter fluid worked for a little and the engine died again, it may be some of your filters. Check the air and fuel filters and replace them if they are dirty or haven't been replaced in a long while. This is the most common reason a car won't start.

Another idea is the engine may have been flooded. If you have a fuel injected engine, don't pump the fuel when trying to start it. The fuel pump primes the engine all on it's own. If the engine is already flooded, push the fuel pedal all the way to the floor and hold it there while you try to start the engine. This bypasses the priming and opens the air to blast any unburned fuel out of the cylinders.

Check to make sure you are getting spark with an inline spark tester (at auto parts stores) and if not try replacing (in order) the spark plugs, wires and (depending on your engine) the magneto's or distributor cap. Ask the auto parts store if they can look up if you have a distributor-less ignition or if you have a distributor.

So, first the filters (air and any fuel [there may be more than 1]) then check for spark and replace the spark plugs, wires, and magneto/distributor cap.

I hope this helps and good luck! Don't forget to rate! Thank you!

I have an 87 Ford f350 460 big block 4x4 is been sitting 4 years and now put new fuel pump in it and a battery and it won't start I don't know if that has ignition but it will turn over has gas


won't start Addam, verify weather it has spark, if has spark try a little starter fluid in carberator. If runs then quits after starter fluid, the carberator or pump is still the problem. I will post some touble shooting links that may help you.

Cranks, no start on 97 GMC van with 350 Vortec. Fired up with starter fluid


if it starts with starter fluid then its a fuel problem. check the fuel pressure and volume with a gage. these require at least 56lbs pressure to open the injectors and if the pressure is at 52lbs the they will not open. these use the pressure to open the poppet injectors and have a problem with the spider lines cracking and leaking fuel inside the intake. this is probably why it won`t start on its own.

I changed the fuel pump but the van still won't


And you know the fuel filter is good? Could be injector problem: just as a check, spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if engine runs a few seconds. If it does, it is a fuel problem. Check injector fuse, as a start. Check fuel pressure. Check injector circuit. If engine won't start with starting fluid, check if you are getting spark. Problem may be in the ignition system.

We have a 98 Malibu that turns over but won't start.I was told it might be the fuel pump.If I use a diagnostic meter,will a code show for a bad fuel pump?


A bad fuel pump will not necessarily show a code. If you have a throttle body try spraying a little bit of starter fluid into it. Then try to start the car. If you have it will be under under the air cleaner cover and kind of looks like a conventional carbureator. If it starts with starter fluid and then dies you have a bad fuel pump, or clogged fuel filter. The fuel pump will be in the fuel tank. Im not sure where your fuel filter would be.

starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

I have a 2001 vw beetle 5 speed and i can't seem to locate the Fuel Pump Relay. My car is truning over but won't start, spraying starter fluid in the engine and it starts for a moment but won't...


  • Hi, I can help.

  • The fuel pump relay is 4th over on the very bottom row of the relay panel under the hood. This can be the pump too. The pump holds pressure and when the back pressure switch fails the car won't start. Or the pump could just be out period. The fuel filter can do this too.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Car has been sitting; will turn over but won't start. Used starting fluid and car starts but quits. Won't fire without starting fluid. There is fuel in the tank. Help!!


My first thought is to check the fuel pump operation.
Check to see if fuel pump is getting power.

This is how I check the pump.

Usually there is an in-line fuel filter that can be removed.
While its removed...bump the starter to see if gas shoots out the gas line.
If not, there might be a clog at the pump...or the pump needs replacing.

Hope this helps...

Car has gas but won't start. Sprayed starter


the most likely reason is a failed fuel pump, plugged fuel filter or defective fuel regulator-you need to have the fuel line pressure tested-you can get the use (free) of a guage set from most commercial auto parts stores.

?87 F-150 5.0 stalled and won?t restart. Electric


Is the fuel pump inside the fuel tank? If, so, you could try disconnecting the wire harness at the tank, and hot-wiring the fuel pump directly to a 12 volt source, in the correct polarity of course! If the pump runs, your problem may be a fuel pump relay, or a wire problem or connector problem. If the pump does NOT run, post that info. There may be a way around the problem!
