Possibly a weak fuel pump, idle air control valve, vacuum leaks, or loose or damaged wiring in the ignition system. Check for vacuum leaks first. That's the only one that won't cost anything. Make sure all intake bolts are tight, and all hoses are connected properly and in good condition.

SOURCE: 1996 2.2 liter. Starving for fuel

There are a few other things taht could be causing fuel starvation. First of all, did you pull the injectors and clean out the individual filters? There are small, conical screens inside the top of each injector, and they could be clogged. Second, There could be some carbon build-up on the intake valves, which would act like a sponge for the fuel after initial start-up. A can of BG44K fuel system cleaner from NAPA will get rid of that. If it is neither of these, the fuel pressure regulator could be leaking. Other than this, the car would need to be diagnosed by a shop before action is taken. I hope this helps you!

Testimonial: "I ended up taking the car to a local shop for diagnosis. It turns out that the fuel pump is week and not supplying enough pressure to the motor. "

replace your injectors. your vehicle is getting the fuel to start from the starter fluid. however the injectors arent giving it the gas that it needs to stay cranked

SOURCE: 2001 grand am 4cyl. fuel

the fuel pressure regulator is located on fuel rack, top of motor.follow the chrome fuel lines on top of motor to the end next to drivers side of motor and you will see a round cylinder. that cylinder is your fuel pressure regulator.make sure to let pressure off those fuel lines before removig the regulator. you should have a valve on the fuel rack that looks like a tire valve, insert something pointed into that valve and gas will come out.that's the way you releive the pressure from the fuel pump.be advised that gas should come out of that valve, cover your eyes and face.

Van no start


The fact that it starts if you spray it indicates that you have a fuel problem. Either out of gas, low fuel pressure, fuel pump issue.

Why won't my 2008 Honda Accord start?


If you can get someone to crank the car over for you, get a can of starting fluid and spray it into the air filter box, remove the filter and spray while cranking. If it starts for a few seconds and it wasn't doing that before u spray starting fluid in it then there's pretty much only 3 things it could be. Out of gas. The fuel pump is bad or the fuel pump relay. Although it could be the computer or jumped time. Hard to say without knowing the history and mileage

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.

Car will crank but will not start


First check you are getting spark to plugs. If yes check for fuel. You can spray starting fluid in intake when you pull off intake rubber hose that sits on top of engine. If you start momentarily you have fuel problems. Turn key forward just where its left after you start. Listen for fuelpump to whine back by gas tank filler. If no noise most likely fuelpump. Always change fuel filter right after its install.

I think the fuel filter is inside the tank, and when they get clogged it is time to replace the fule pump. thy not to drive the vehicle around so close to empty.

Wont start unless primed with starting fluid


Sounds like no gas reaching the motor. Could be fuel filter or fuel pump. I would recommed you disconnect the fuel line and start car to see if fuel is coming up if it is then ur injectors r clogged or no good if nothing comes up u know is pump or filter I would change both.
