SOURCE: 99 Taurus wont start unless primed. Fuel pump is working

Check/Change Fuel Filter(s), PVC Valve & Emission Hoses
Gas that sits too long won't fire easily that's why we have to add winterize to our lawn mowers!
Try filling the tank with some high grade fuel cleaner additive. This stuff is like rocket fuel (about $10).
Also add a can of dry gas as you may have a lot of water and water vapor in your system!
Get a couple more cans of starter fluid too. (I always needed at least two to get my diesel running for summer)
Keep spraying and starting (It always took me at least a full can sometimes 2)
When it starts keep the gas pedal down and rev high for a good 5-10 minutes then see if it will idle.
If it still stumbles and falls consider adding another can of fuel system cleaner and/or dry gas.
Don't drain the tank as this usually just makes it worse by letting the bottom sludge stir up.
Never let your gas tank get too low as this will foul up your fuel system and always add fuel cleaner after every oil change (a must for fuel injection and cat. converter care)

Good Luck!

SOURCE: not starting ran out of gas,added gas and still not starting,can hear fuel pump running,smell gas at engine and exhaust.

Change your fuel filter. **** at the bottom of your gas tank probably clogged it.

SOURCE: not starting ran out of gas,added gas and still not starting,can hear fuel pump running,smell gas at engine and exhaust.

This could be a couple of things. Since the gas ran low, it probably is sediment in the tank mucking things up. The sediment is probably blocking the pathway and reducing pressure.

Try replacing the fuel filter (always a good thing.) The other typical place is the strainer on the fuel pump inside the tank. try banging on the bottom of the tank to maybe loose the particles from the strainer, otherwise you may have to get inside the gas tank. If you have to do that It may be a good idea to just replace the fuel pump (the fuel pump uses the gas as a coolant and may have overheated.)

Another place to be concerned is the injectors. Rarely they start collecting deposits as well. Try some cleaner in the tank. The next thing is removing the injectors and soaking them in alcohol (again not easy)

98 Chevy 1500 Running down road dies Has fuel. Has spark.

If it has spark to the plugs, normal compression, and fuel, it should start. So assuming it does have normal compression, I would want to know if it will try to start by spraying carb cleaner into the throttle body to substitute the injector spray. One of the three components is missing.
Another thing to check is the distributor cap and rotor to make sure spark is reaching all of the plugs at the right time.

My 1989 camaro runs when I pour gas in the throttlebody but then dies when the gas runs out

I guess my first question is how do you know the injector has fuel ?
You would need to know if the injector is getting voltage and pulse from the computer, and if the fuel pressure is enough to allow the injector to spray.

94 bonneville dies if not spraying starting fluid in throttle body

if it only runs when your spraying fluid into it then you have a fuel pump problem that will have to be checked out.check to see if you can hear the pump run when trying to start the car at the fuel tank or by removing the gas cap and listening in the filler tube you should hear a humming noise.then while someone is trying to start the car hit the gas tank with something but not so hard you dent it if it starts then the pump will need replacing.the fuel pump is located in the gas tank.

1994 ford taurus which I have replace the spark plugs and wires. in damp weather the car will not start. when i spray eahter into the intake it cranks up for about 15 sceonds and cut off. after the...

this i would say is a fuel supply problem as when you spray ether into the intake it runs until it has burnt it all(replacing the gas ).it could be that the dampness is affecting the fuel pump system at a connection or the pump relay under the hood or a wire worn through somewhere.the distributor tells the computer that the car is running and to keep the fuel pump running through a signal supplied by the pickup coil in the distributor to the thick film module mounted on the side of the distributer(grey in colour)with about 5 wires in the plug connector out to the computer.either of these could also be the can still have spark but no fuel if there is a signal problem.the most common problem is the thick film module.

I have fire too my spark plugs no dash codes or check engine light comming on fuel pump does not appear too be working its throttlebody so i sprayed gas in it truck still wont start its ah 1995 4.3 sonoma...

Try using a throttle body cleaner, spray it in the intake, behind the butterfly and all that carbon will run out. You say the fuel pump don't seem to be working. Have you checked the relay. On the other hand can you hear the pump come on by listening at the gas tank neck. Have someone to turn the switch to ON position (not Start) and you listen to hear for the pump to kick on.Another way to check is to take the fuel filter inlet hose loose from the filter and turn the switch on and gas should be pumped out. If it does not, the pump is gone.

Check fuel pump pressure and fuel pump regulator. It sounds like you are not getting fuel into the system and if you are you are not getting enough fuel into the system
