might have a fuel filter problem or a fuel pump problem meaning the filter might be clogged or the fuel pump in the gas tank is not pumping check ur fuse box there is a fuse for the fuel pump in there if it if blown replace and then turn car over again. if its ok then it still could be a fuel pump problem check the fuel filter located by the gas tank under the car or take to a local mechanic if u do not want to do it ur self. fuel filter is easy to change very easy.a fuel pump on most cars the gas tank as to be dropped.
on the end of the fuel rail is a vacumn operated valve that will only allow fuel through when it gets a vacumn ,is this pipe fitted ?? have you broke it whilst putting the gearbox in ,when you wiggle woggle the box to get the spigot shaft through the clutch and into the spigot beating
The first and most common is to check the fuelpump, if you have a preasure gauge check the preasure while cranking the engine, you can also turn key on and listen for humming noise from tank to see if pump is working. ive found that if one person trys starting the van while at the same time you beat on botoom of the center of the gas tank this shakes the fuel pump and van starts this means the pump is bad, give it a try. must beat while someone is cranking. NOTE; use rubber hammer.
When you turn the key to the ON position, you should hear the whirring of the fuel pump working. If you don't hear anything it may be your fuel pump. It only lasts a few seconds but that sound is evidence that your fuel pump is delivering fuel. If it is good, then check your fuel filter.
You mean it turns over but wont start? have you checked the fuel pump inertia switch? it is on the rt side kick panel i believe. will have a reset button sometimes can trip if it gets kicked. can also try beating on tank while spinning over and see if this shakes pump to get it working
