Most carbureted engines had a solenoid controlled needle situated in the idle circuit of the carby body. This is to stop engine run on when the ignition is turned off. If you engine will not run or idle then this solenoid is faulty or simply not connected to the power supply. as to fuel pump may be faulty simply disconnect a fuel line and see if fuel flows out when the ignition is on.

Possibly the fuel pump needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: wont strat

Hello thank you for using FixYa.com for your answer my name is David.
You say it wont start in the normal way by just turning it on but if you pour gas in the throttle body
it will start sounds like you have a weak fuel pump most likely but there are a few other things that could cause it also .

SOURCE: won't hold fuel pressure

Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, there should be 60,PSI to 65,PSI for the poppet injectors to work. If the pressure is correct then there is a good chance that the Spider injection system may have gone bad. Recap. Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve to make sure the Fuel pump is not going bad. There is a valve at the fuel pump that holds the residual pressure in the system, try cycling the ignition three times. Turn the ignition to the run position for 5 seconds and turn it off and do it again for 3 cycles to pressurize the fuel line and see if it starts. If it does not start then check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Make sure you have the proper pressure to activate the injector system. If not then get the injector system check for bad wire harness and see if you can smell gas leaking. Oh and the easiest thing to do is change the fuel filter too. Good luck and keep me posted and if you get a chance get the ECM scanned at Auto Zone for free and look for any DTC codes if any have it cleared. Good luck and keep me posted

My 1985 grand Marquis won't start I can pour gas


Take the gas filter off. Should be located near the front of the carbeurator, take off the air cleaner and look for it, it takes 2 wrenches to take it off, a little gas may spill out but not much and replace it, however there is a strong possibility that he gas pump is out if the filter is fine. Hope this helps

fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. When you turn the key do you hear fuel pump run? If not odds are the pump is bad.
