93 rodeo turns over but wont start


probably should ask petrol or diesel how ever ill go with petrol. if at all possible get some one to operate key while you get close to the fuel tank and listen for the fuel pump operating, another way to check is disconnect fuel return line and crank over engine being careful as if pump is working fuel will pump out possibally causing a fire hazard so once again only a quickflick of the key is needed , usually the pump can be heard operating if you go close enough to the tank. so I guess we will start there , is there fuel getting to the engine?

sounds lie a bad fuel pump. replace your fuel filter first, if that doesnt work then you may need to drop the fuel tank to get the pump out.

Check for spark. Also listen for the fuel pump to kick on or spray starting fluid in the throttle body to see if it starts. If the fuel pump isn't kicking on then its your fuel pump and its located in the tank

97 lincoln wont start


usually if you have power it may be a fuel problem, when you turn your key to the on position you should hear your fuel pump come on, if not it could be the fuel pump relay under the hood or a possible bad fuel pump or bad connection on the fuel pump. hope this helps.
