Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 1987 new yorker 2.2 turbo ran out of gas and now will not start. Came to the conclussion that it was something to do with the fuel, I couldnt hear my fuel pump coming on so I dropped the gas tank and took it out, and connected it to a battey and it didn't work. I also tested my wires at the connecter that hooks to the fuel pump and they are only reading 1.6 is this right? I connected the new fuel pump to the connecter and turned the key on and the new pump did not come on. So now I'm wondering if its my wires or connectors that are fried.

You need fuel system wiring diagrams & the ability to test
basic electrical circuits

You can't guess or expect some to guess for you

    Okay ill find some diagrams, is it suppose to be reading more than 1.6 at the fuel pump connector, shouldn't it be reading 12 volts to my fuel pump? Could it be my relay not sending enough power?

SOURCE: 1987 ford Bronco II fuel gage doesn't work-reads empty all time

I need to know if the other gauges are accurate. There is a voltage regulator mounted on the back side of the dash that can go bad and often does, that will make the other gauges inaccurate also.

The inline fuel pump fuse on the passenger side firewall is good? Are you jumping it with 12 volts at the test lead or the fuse?

SOURCE: 97 gmc pickup, 5.7 eng, fuel pump not operating,

What you need to do is check you fuel pressure. Go to a local auto parts store and buy a fuel injection pressure tester. The pressure fitting is on the top of the motor its a 3/8 ish sized metal line and has a screw on fitting like a tire valve does. This line comes up from the back of the motor to the right of the distributor and goes down into the intake. Make sure to have a rag handy to catch the fuel seepage. After you connect the pressure tester turn the key on and off three times and read the gage you should have atleast 58 pounds of pressure. If you have 56 pounds it won't run because the fuel injectors are a poppit valve style and need atleast 58 pounds of pressure to operate.

Rough idle loss power

Hi ~ This is going to sound crazy but it may work. I had a 1984 Chrysler New Yorker, stock. having the same power loss problem and I just changed the gas cap for a new locking one, and it ran great, something to do with the vacuum build up in the tank. not venting properly, apparently. Cheers, Gary

I have a 1984 chrysler new yorker that i just put a new radiator in it. After i got it in i tried to start it. it ran for a few minutes and then acted like it was starving for air and getting too much gas...

I would say that the choke is staying on or the float is not controlling the fuel level . Remove the needle and seat and check for something holding the needle of the seat.

do you hear the fuel pump running if not then the fuel pump may need replacing or if you do hear it the fuel filter may be plugged from the pump pumping dirt from the bottom of the tank.

fuel pump relay is under hood, if you turn key to on/ not start, you should hear fuel pump run in rear of car for a few seconds. Try spark plugs

My car a 1987 300zx turbo 2+2 suddenly started to

It could be a couple of things. I first guess is to check the fuel filter. If it has not been changed out within 15-25,000 miles deposits that within the gas tank has restricted the flow and will cause a hesitation or very rough idle. Now the desposit could have surface close to the injectors restricting the flow. Second, tune-up ( distributor cap and button, spark plugs, wires, etc). Third, check all you fuel hoses leading (especially leading from the fuel filter) to and from the engine.If they have never been changed, I would do so. Hope this a start of resolving your problem.

Will 1987 Chrysler New Yorker parts fit on other

Yes they can, providing the engines are the same, 6 or 8 cylinder.
Try calling an auto parts store and ask them if they can give you a rough idea on the highest year you can go.
I have an 1985 ford and I can get parts up to a 1996.

1987 IROC, Ran out of gas,put gas in, now service engine light on

if you have high milieage you may have sucked in the gunk on the botton of your tank when you ran out of fuel check if you can hear the fuel pump running for about 2 sec with key on engine off if you hear nothing the problem is with your pump as they will burn out if they run dry for too long,if you hear the pump check for fuel pressure if pressure low check fuel filter to see if clogged by gunk from bottom of tank.
