    My 91 GTO has been garaged for about 2 years, it is regularly started but recently it has been taking longer to fire up. I stupidly let it idle last week with the petrol light on. After topping up with petrol it now just cranks over & does not start, I've switched off the turbo timer, ( just in case ). I did manage to start it but it just stopped dead after about 30 secs. HELP PLEASE .

Sounds like an ASD relay (auto shut down). Or it could be a burnt computer. Take out your computer and smell it to see if it is burnt. Good luck.

Any one know 4by4 Mitsubishi triton no codes cranks need help urgent

the tachometer ( rev counter) get its impulses from the ignition system or in the case of a diesel from the crankshaft position sensor
if it runs with introduced fuel ( dangerous for a diesel) but then dies, that indicates insufficient fuel pressure to the injectors
could be a diesel pressure pump ( test to 25,000 psi) not producing sufficient pressure to work injectors
problem fuel supply to pump, tank venting, filters , air in system etc

Fuel engine stops then start up in 1 min

You probably have an electronic ignition system to go with those fuel injectors. It sounds like it runs just long enough to empty the fuel out of the injectors, which means there might be a vacuum problem. I'm a carburetor person myself. Are you sure it sound like it NEEDS gas or could it be flooding?

1991 f-159 4.9l cranks but won't start fuel pumps in both tanks loud

fuel pump should only run for about 15 seconds when u first turn the key on now you should check to see if the fuel filter is clogged or your sending unit might be bad on the fuel pump itself

Check your fuel tank, fuel pipe and hoses might have a leaky somewhere.. else your injection pump has a leaky internal high presure pump.

Where isx the fuel pump relay or fuse i have no power to the pump

Its in the engine junction box it will be marked fuel pump relay, if you tested for power at the fuel pump that is a good thing but there is a connection that is near the tank and has a tendency to loose contact from the fuel pump follow it it will lead you to a connection near the tank there thest the connection one before the pump and after the pump connection

1991 dodge spirit.. ran great then next day wouldnt start. only starts when you put gas in the carburater.. changed fuel pump still wont start.. please help

usually if thats the only way it will start that means you have no fuel to engine. first off, check the fuse and relay for the fuel pump. next get under car at fuel tank and put your hand on tank while someone turns ignition to on. if the pump works. then you can feel it vibrate. a fuel pump only turns on a few seconds, to pressurize the fuel line. then when running its on all the time. check fuse and relay first before doing anything else. have a good one !!

Until you determine if you have a fuel issue or a ignition issue its anyones guess. All you can do is replace the fuel pump relay or rotate it with the horn or ABS . There are severl parts in the ignition system that can cause a no start. The fuel pump is in the gas tank so unless you can do the job yourself and have the diagnostic tools this car is going to end up in the shop.

1998 mitsubishi mirage wont start?

check if the fuel pump is working, if you have someone near the tank and someone else crank motor you should be able to hear a bzzzzzz rom the tank from the pump. if no noise is heard then hit or thump the tank, this can make a fuel pump start to work again, if it starts, then the pump is almost dead
