You could try another fuel filter and some heavy duty injector cleaner. A garage would use a product that hooks into the fuel line and skips the gas tank to clean the injectors. The PS fluid could have also gummed up the fuel pump in the tank.

SOURCE: 1997 S10 pickup starts then shuts off in 2-4 seconds

when its in that not running stage or it dies you need to try and shoot a little starting fluid or gasoline into the throttle body or air cleaner and try and start it again .. If it starts then we know you have a fuel pump going out .. and its in the gas tank .. thanks Jerry and holler if you need more..

SOURCE: engine bk firering & lose of compression.

Backfiring after warming up can be from many things.

One that comes to mind is carbon deposits on valves, causing them to not close properly. The carbon deposits would also heat up and then ignite air/fuel mixtures before the spark plug can fire.
Or you would have hot exhaust gasses leaking back into the cylinder on intake and that would ignite the fuel.

Tac gauge fluctuating, and engine running rough on acceleration could be a vacuum leak, do you hear a hissing sound when the engine is running? listen closely under the hood. If you have a vacuum leak you would lose power and your RPM would fluctuate oddly. As for the backfire however, there are probably more than just one problem. Its hard to say for sure.

So please, more details, noises you hear, when exactly everything happens etc.
What speed and RPM the engine begins to bog down at, does it stall? What range is ur tac fluctuating at? anything you can think of, throw it on there.

Hope this helps you

SOURCE: 91 chevy cavalier 2.2 engine turns but that's all

OK FIRST PULL A WIRE OFF A PLUG CRANK ENGINE OVER AND CHECK FOR SPARK. THEN YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO CHECK FUEL PRESSURE. THIS HAS TO BE DONE WITH A GAUGE TO SEE IF YOU ARE HOLDING 9-13 PSI ONCE YOU FIND OUT WHICH ONE IS MISSING YOU CAN FIND THE PROBLEM. IF YOU HAVE BOTH IT IS TIMING . THIS VEH HAS A TIMING CHAIN. SO FIND OUT AND RE POST AND WE CAN HELP YOU GET THIS STARTED.

It sounds like you might have a clogged catalatic converter on the exhaust system.

What would make my 91 Ford F150 not excalurate win I step on the gas petul going down the road


Probably one of three options: Fuel delivery, out of tune, or transmission problems.

Start with the basics:
  • Has the fuel filter been replaced?
  • Is the air cleaner reasonably clean?
  • Do the spark plugs look okay?
  • Do the distributor cap and rotor need replacing?
If these things check out, then it's time to take it to the mechanic.

Sounds as if you are having fuel injector problems . Try putting in high octane gas and then some fuel Injection cleaner run it for awhile and see if it straightens out some . It could also be a injector pump . It may also need tune up plugs and plug wires new rotor and rotor cap . You may need a tune up badly also check your intake air cleaner ect

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?

I would start with a new fuel filter, all indications by what you're describing sounds like a fuel filter. Try that first. Then if it hasn't been tuned in awhile - that would be a good idea too.

How often should I get a brake flush, power steering flush and fuel injection cleaning on a 2004 Saturn Vue w/129,000 miles?


you should never need a brake flush, possibly get the brakes bled if you have brake work or replace brake cylinders, master cyl ,brake lines replace, or a brake job. you also dont need power steering flush. If you have work done on the rack and pinion or the pump replaced they will add fluid as needed and bleed air from the system but you shouldnt need a flush on those items. Now for the fuel injection, our so called high tech fuel is suppose to have all those goodies in it, but if you think you need to you can go to the local auto parts store and buy fuel injector cleaner and add it to your tank of fuel every 6-8 fill ups or every two months. I personally would change my fuel filter more often rather than add injector cleaner. Gas is a great grease and grime cleaner in itself as long as it does not sit stagnant for a period of time where it will "tarnish" The idea of a fuel system is to keep it clean from debris with a filter so the spray of the injector does not get clogged or damaged. Injector cleaner only helps clean carbon and varnish deposits, it will not remove a small pin head size rock or other foreign debris,that is the filters job. So the filter is much more important.

My 1988 ford f150 wont start


fuel pressure regulator!!
and when is the last time you had a complete tune up?

1991 Geo Tracker only starts with starting fluid.


91 is 8valve TBI injection.
it is flooding.
the starting fluid is more combustible and starts a flooded motor.
kinda like adding dynamite to bbq lighter fluid.
hahah
ok,
try a tune up.
then try holding gas pedal to floor, this is super secret unflood mode and cuts fuel injection.

the issues why its flooding, not starting is normal for that condition.
so its:
1: bad need of tune up
and or
2: leaking injector.

the former you can figure out.
cap/wires/plugs /rotor, filters, there i said it.

or
this car has a viewable fuel injector
one an do 2 things with it.
key on five times , or 5 seconds on, not cranking
and other person looks down throttle body neck
yes, off comes the tube on top.
and makes sure the injectors dont dribble full time, key on.

or
the ECT is bad.

or dash pot is not opening at key on crank.

or
cold start, IAC is clogged.

complex it is,
it will take hard work to check everything.

see flooding here.
