Maybe you should clairify your problem, or just remove your fuel filter, and put in a new one. only place it can be as you say clogged. good luck dude, oh ,your welcome.

Toyota corolla diesel with turbo wont start already genera overhaul, 4 new pistion, spark plug, glow plug( heater) all are new n fuel pump ia working fine but still wont start any suggestion pls...

i could suggest you to look your fuel line and the fuel filter if are free from any restrictions and if the line has a solid line of fuel(no air). air on the filter or on the line, engine really wont start.
and this assume engine timing is ok?

My 92 rodeo starts and idles but splutters at half throttle.the only way i can drive it is flat to the floor.

Low fuel pressure. Check the fuel pump, filter, lines (one might be pinched) and injectors. Try using an unclogging/cleaning additive.

2005 equinox will start and stall

Sounds like a fuel filter that gets clogged with dirt and then gets unclogged when you put the fuel treatment in your gas tank. Love your car it needs a little TLC. Replace the fuel filter and make sure all fuel line connections are tight.

Not getting gas to carberater 1972 bug

Start with the simplest things first... remove the line from the input side of the pump... does fuel flow out nicely? If not, it's a clogged line and probably a lot of gunk in the tank... take off the filler cap and apply some low pressure air to the engine end of the line... if this unclogs it, you will hear a bubbling sound at the filler tube. if fuel flows freely, reconnect and take off the output line at the carb and, (after disconnecting the coil high tension lead and grounding it!) engage the starter, fuel should come out in a solid stream (not just a dribble)... if not replace the pump. If it does turn out to be the pump, check your oil for a gasoline smell as a faulty pump diaphragm can let oil into the crankcase. If so, change oil as well... Hope this helps...;-)

Kawasaki ninja ex250 won't start

the petcock is vacuum operated, there should be a small hose just behind the larger fuel hose thats attached to the petcock. What it does is when the bike is cranking over it sends vacuum though this hose and operates a diaphram in the petcock causing fuel to be released in the fuel line. This is for people that don't turn the fuel off as far as I know. Anyway if you take the small line off and get another piece that fits there and turn the petcock on and **** on the small hose it should send fuel out the bigger fuel hose if it works correctly.

Hope this helps
