My 95 Pathfinder has sat idle for a couple months and now it won't start.

letting a vehicle sit idle for months is not good !!! now you need to do some work, so get out your check book ! replace both air & fuel filters, replace spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap & rotor, add fresh fuel & fuel injector cleaner to tank @ same time. why are you going from accessory to run, that doesn't make any sense, stop it, please ! now get to work, good luck !

I have a 2001 KIA Sephia I've had within the last 2 months the timing belt replaced, the fuel filter, pump & relay switch replaced, alternator and a new battery put in and it seems like I'

This will need a hands on inspection by a qualified mechanic. i suggest the Kia dealership, but at a minimum it needs to go to a different shop than the one you've been taking it to as they seem to not know what they're doing.

2002 chevy 3500 duramax 6.6 ran hot now cranks but won't start

Check spark plugs, leads, distributor cap & rotor arm, fuel pump, fuel filter, coil pack(s), relays, replace any items that are suspect IE Fuel filter which has probably not been changed since new even though they should be changed on all vehicles every 18 months, all of this can be done at home & will save you a lot of bucks in mechanic/garage fees,

93 chrysler t&c awd changed fuel pump and filter, van ran fine again for about 2 months now won't start and don't hear the fuel pump. changed the oil pressure sending unit and still won

fuel pick-up in tank is blocked it has a sock over the end as a gross filter to keep out any big junk from getting sucked into the pump and causing damage to it. the sock can get so plugged up that no fuel will flow, causing the pump to run for a short time then with no fuel flow to cool it it trips the safety and shuts off

I have a 2006 Toyota Rav4. When I press on the accelerater, it stalls at times. I have h ad 9 months and it has always done it a little. You press on pedal and then hesitates then all of a sudden it just...

Since you have had the problem for months,then I have to ask
basic questions,I'm no Toyota expert, but when you purchase a
used vehicle you need to go thru the entire vehicle & catch up on preventative maintenance,because it isn't likely much was done
before you got it

Example: Install new Spark Plugs,double platinum & the correct
plug,any brand

Install new O2 Sensors
You may want to consider a new EGR Valve
New gas filter & air filter
Check ducting from air filter to throttle for leaks

Now beyond that,I'm not suggesting you throw parts at it,
or that any of those items will fix anything,but it will give you
a base to work from.

What you can not do yourself, but should have done is:

Check the TPS Sensor Voltages
Check Fuel Pressure
Check Fuel Trim,short & long
Check for any dash lights that shouldn't be lite,
& any stored data (codes) etc.

I would use the fuel pressure gauge & scan tool on
a road test,& look at cylinder misfire count

Check for vacuum leaks

Even Smoke test the entire intake & evap system

Consider the exhaust converters may be on their way out

You have to actually be pro active & be determined to first
see what does work correctly,then keep going until you find
something that doesn't

All vehicle issues are the result of doing nothing & only the
so called break down maintenance. That is all a repair shop does

You can't afford to make love all day or several days, to solve
these problems,when your charging a customer,but that is how
you find & resolve them

Before you replace the injectors have them do an injector balance test. Normally wet weather does not effect fuel system. Sounds more like you have a crank or cam sensor acting up.

I have a 1996 Plymouth Breeze... That won't start,

Hi, this sounds like a bad fuel pump. I would have the fuel pressure checked. Sometimes Autozone will let you borrow a fuel pressure gauge to check your fuel pressure. Just unscrew the cover from the pressure port on the fuel rail and screw on the pressure gauge. Put a rag over your hand while screwing it on to avoid getting fuel sprayed around. Lay the gauge in a safe place and start the car. Read the gauge, record the reading, turn the car off and remove the gauge. If the pressure is less than 35 psi, you need a new fuel pump. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Why is my 1995 3.4 liter 6 cylinder Pontiac firebird less fuel efficient than it was 2 months ago and how do i change the fuel pump

I don't know why its not fuel efficient. But the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. you should not attempt to replace it yourself, and don't change it on a whim. prove that's its bad, its an expensive guess.
