Wont start due to fuel supply to carburetor , change fuel pump but no petrol supply yet

check fuses and relays --is pump running --new doesnt mean free from defects or improper installation --fuel filter changed --fuses and relays checked --and check connections and wiring

Why wont my 87 dodge dakota start when cold outside but when temp warms up it starts just fine

Must be the choke setting on the carburetor. You might try to take the breather off the top of the carburetor and look at the center where the air intake is and see if the choke plate is opening when you turn over the engine while trying to start. If the plate isn't letting air pass try to jam it open with something clean and preferably made of plastic that won't scratch anything. If the engine starts the choke setting probably just needs a adjustment .

Car starts then shut it off and wont start again rite away? Heater contrals flash when wont start. wat could that bee?

My Passat would run, then not start for a while, then run fine again. I told the mechanic it acted like old carburetor engines would when they flooded. Took him 3 days to find the problem. The oil pressure regulator was bad, making the pressure to high, causing the lifters to stay open. Had to change the oil pump and fixed the problem. This is a known problem with VW's. ONLY RUN THE RECCOMENDED SYNTH OIL IN THE CAR it makes all the difference

Changed spark plugs and ignition coil still keeps turning but wont turn over. batteryis fully chargerd.dont think its getting the proper amount of fuel . how do i check to make sure? Details

If your car is carburetor type, check the carburetor solenoid or the carburetor itself.. it might help also if you check if your distributor is on timing a wrong timed distributor might be one of your problem.

Check the fuel pressure at the Carburetor or fuel rail, depending on which you have. Most likely the gas that was in the rail or carburetor has dried out and gummed up the injectors or needle valve holes. To verify, if you have a carburetor you can pour a small amount of gas in the throttle body of the carburetor and try to start it. If it starts that confirms the problem and you will need to clean the carburetor with a rebuild.

Had new battery, carburetor, and fuel pump installed in my dodge aries 84, and still it wont start, why?

Have you checked that you have spark at the sparkplugs? Have you checked if the fuel is indeed reaching the carburetor? Have you checked if the choke is activated when you try to start it? If no find out why and fix it. Does the engine starts when you pour a small amount of lighter fluid directly in the carburetor? If yes then the carburetor is badly adjusted - fix that.

Just change the sparkplugs, overhauled the carburetor but still it is hard starting.My mechanic says i have to change my carburetor. is it right?

if your carburetor was overhauled correctly , no , you shouldn't have to change it. Are you sure your problem is fuel supply related? if so , hard starts are usually caused by the following : improper choke setting..a vacuum leak at the carburetor base or intake manifold or a hose ...a faulty accelerator pump ...low fuel pump pressure caused by a bad fuel pump or a clogged filter ....or too low of a gasoline float level in the carburetor.
