Take the next step in troubleshooting...follow the gas! After the fuel pump is the fuel filter( when did you change it last?) ; if that doesn't work go to the carburator and see if it is getting gas by opening the fitting to it; if the fuel is making it to the carburator, the carb is the culprit...overhaul it or get a rebuilt one!

SOURCE: truck starts, dies. truck runs good some days,bad the next

I had the same problem with My 1990 F150 300 6cylinder 4x4.....I cahnged all the same things you did, finally I sprayed a can of Gumout through the throttle body and it worked and ran great. Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!

SOURCE: 1997 dodge dakota v6 engine wont start replaced

turn the key to the on position a see if you can here a buzzing sound around the fuel tank,if you don't hear a sound then. (be very careful while doing this) with the key off take a fuel line coming from the tank loose,make sure its pointed away from you and turn the key to the on position,see if any gas comes out,if not then your fuel pump is probably bad.

SOURCE: 95 dakota cranks but wont start

Well I'm a chrysler master tech & this is a little odd. There's alot of things not in the question so here are mine. I'm assuming it's a 3.9 no 4wd. When did this happen? When you check for power do you have some one turn the key on while you check? If still no power then make sure all the fuses are good from the one under the hood to the one inside the cab. Next be sure to check the grounds. You'll need to by a manual like a Haynes in order to get a decent wiring diagram. In a worst case senario the main power box under the hood has an issue & the asd relay gets no power,hence no start. Ran into it on a 95 caravan & it took a week to figure it out & no replacement was available & I had to hard wire it so it would run. Hope this helps.

1993 ford wont start


fuel pump is gone for sure. it ran until the fuel in engine burnt then died. poor 1/4 cup gas into intake. if it starts and dies a couple seconds later then 100% fuel pump.

97 marquis fires up but dies


Do you have power to the fuel pump once the key ios released? Try this, start the engine and carefully let the ignition switch back off until the starter is not engaged, does it stay running? If so you need a new ignition starter switch, the switch is located on the top bottom of the steering column under the dash.

1996 dakota v6 starts dies but then wont start till time has gone by


Just a thought! There is a provision where when fuel pressure drops the ignition is shut off. This is to prevent pumping when the fuel line is compromised. Monitor fuel pressure to see if it drops during normal operation.

1988 mercedes 190 e only runs if I dump fuel down the carburator then dies. Its not getting fuel for some reason.


The fuel pump has gone bad in it. It's time to replace it. I'm sure that the carb. is fine since you can dump fuel down it and it will run for a short time. Fuel just isn't getting into the carb. for the car to run right.
