SOURCE: 1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L.

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

SOURCE: 82 corvette crossfire injection, engine

Please go to the crossfire injection forum to get some straight answers to the 82 corvette CFI system and how to troubleshoot it properly. There's a lot of misinformation given here, so much so, I don't know where to begin.

One thing is, the 82 corvette CFI does NOT have a MassAir Flow sensor system, it uses MAP and O2 mostly. The CTS sends a signal to the ECM telling it what the temp of the motor is and in turn the ECM controls the amount of fuel being dumped. On the older (orignal) CTS sensors, they have one wire and takes its ground from the threads. If any coorosion takes place, usually the CTS will report a cold engine and request lots of fuel.

To repair this issue, install one of the newer style CTS sensors that have two wires, one for signal and the other is ground.

Fuel pressure and vacuum leaks on any CFI motor play key roles. Set the FP to 14-15psi measured inbetween the TBs. The regulator is located on the rear TB and must be slightly moded to make it adjustable and can be done in a few minutes.

SOURCE: I have a 1985 Chevy C/30 pick-up with a 7.4L 454.

85 with TBI only needs 13lbs of fuel pressure. verify that the fuel filter is clean. there is no easy way to ck fuel pressure, special adapters are needed, I dont have info here at home but there should be a relay for the pump, on the firewall and the oil pressure switch also powers the pump. did you replace the pump trying to fix this problem or did you just mention it to help troubleshoot the problem? verify that the fuel pump wiring has a good ground, should have been a eyelet that bolted to the frame..when you initially turn the key on, you should hera the fuel pump power up for 2 seconds, then go off, after the engine starts, the power for the pump goes through the oil pressure switch.

Chevy tahoe 1999 now it starts but runs for a few seconds then i wait it starts and run for a few seconds again

Seem's like your fuel pump isn't able to keep the good fuel pressure.

Might be a good idea to check your fuel rail pressure. I assume that it drops before your engine dies!!!

If fuel pressure is ok in your rail, try cleaning the fuel rail and injectors. Sometimes dirt can go from a trashed fuel filter an clog yor rail or the injectors.

Where the fuel pump inlet sucks gas from the fuel tank, there is usually a little mesh bag protecting the pump from sucking in particles from the fuel tank. You may want to check and make sure it hasn't come loose or has a hole in it allowing you fuel pump to **** in dirt. When your pump is off, the suction goes away allowing the dirt to go back into the tank. When it's on, it'll **** the dirt back up causing loss of fuel.

I'm assuming you mean the injector pump and not the fuel lift pump. I would recommend if the fuel injector pump is proved to be the fault to look at Ebay for a replacement. there are thousands of these engines broken for spares. Fitting the pump can be a bit tricky. If it's the lift pump you need to remove the fuel tank as the pump is fitted on the top side of the tank and is an internal unit, Best done when the tank is empty. Hope this helps as i'm sure your landrover will still be running when a Jeep is in the dump. All the best.

Replace your fuel pump. When you run a vehicle completely out of fuel, you will pull all the sediment off the bottom of the tank, and this will indeed clog fuel injectors, but first it will clog your fuel filter. After replacing your fuel filter, purchase a high-octane fuel injector cleaner, and add it to your fuel tank as specified on the side of the fuel injector cleaner bottle specifies.

Check fuel pressure at rail,pump may be going,also check regulator

Check TPS Voltages

Injector Cleaner- money better spent at Dunkin Donuts

Check out EGR Valve and tube may be rusted out

Once car warms up it dies when you press on gas. Then it will not start at all.It turns over but will not start. I am getting fuel and spark.........?

On cars with a carb, you could point to lean fuel mixture. Runs rich enough when it's cold, because the choke makes the fuel mix richer. When it's warm. you no longer have that"rich" mix from the choke and then it's too lean to keep running. Could be a dirty jet, dirt in the carb, Dirt in the fuel. the list goes on. Needs rebuilt or blown out with carb cleaner spray works sometimes. Dissasemble and clean out with compressed air.
With fuel injection, Throttle bodies, it could be a dirty throttle body, injector,etc, Port injection, could be a sensor or some thing controling fuel, a bad couple of injectors, really not sure. Or a sensor of some sort. If you could get it to Auto zone they will scan it for free and tell you what it needs. Hard to put a finger on it with out seeing it. Have you tryed a good fuel cleaner like lucas? Do you run the tank below a quater tank? This will cause troubles. Best of luck, Those Quad four's are a great motor. lbreen

Starts then dies

hi the condition you describe sounds like it could be the ecu s coolant temp sensor which is common but the second lady discribes something a little different if fuel injector additive you put in the tank clears the problem the it re-occurs then you would need to flush the fuel tank and change the fuel filter refill and then put the injector additive in to clear the lines and injectors and if you run your tank low then the pump picks all the **** up off the bottom of your tank don,t run the vechicle low on gas why i would check the sensor first is after 10-15 mins is when the sensors kick in yates210456
