My 2001 ford escape won't start . I checked all

Can\'t really help you with the no start problem without more information, but would advise you to stop using starting fluid right away. Starting fluid is hard on Diesel engines but they are made for much higher compression so will usually survive intermittent use of starting fluid. Gas engines just plain can\'t handle the much higher than normal compression that starting fluid produces which will destroy valves, piston rings, connecting rods, starters, ring gears on the transmission and head gaskets in short order. If you don\'t want to have to completely rebuild your gas engine don\'t use starting fluid on it ever!

Car will not stay turned ON when cold

Try this. When you first try to turn your engine on, keep your foot on the gas pedal. The car should turn over but not start. (don't worry, its not supposed to). Take your foot off the gas and turn the ignition on again, but Don't touch the throttle this time. That should set your choke correctly. To summarise: Turn key with foot on Gas. Take foot off Gas, and turn key again.

My car turns over but don't start

If it is turning over strong and not starting it is most likely a gas issue. I would check first to make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug but then go to the fuel pump, fuel filter and the fuel relay.

My car turns over but won't start, when started

The year make and model would be handy to know.
You would need to check the fuel system and find out why you don't have fuel to the injectors or carb.

Just bought a 99 Lexus rx300 the car had beef sitting for over a year now it don't wanna start put a new battery in it but that's not it it starts with starting fluid but turns off can't...

Someone will need to check the fuel pump relay and see if the pump is getting power. If it is, you may have a clogged screen in the gas tank.

Ran out of gas-truck won't start-replaced fuel

you probably have air in the lines, if you have a carb, spray some quick start into the carb and turn it over, if it starts and then dies when the starting fluid has run out, you probably need a fuel pump, since the running of the car should have blown out any air that was in the line, If your car is fuel injected, loosen the bolt cap at the end of the injector line that supplies the fuel,, and tap the key once,, ( don't start it,, ) just turn the key on and off 3 or 4 times, this should blow fuel out of that loose bolt head, if it does your getting fuel, if not, back to the fuel pump, also you can check this link,

I ran out of gas and now my van doesnt start ,i out 20 litres of gas in it ,,could you tell me why or what the problem is thanks kev

If you ran completely out of gas while the engine was running, it could have damaged the fuel pump. Fuel pumps don't like to run dry. An easy way to check the fuel pump is to lay down on the ground with your ear as close to the gas tank as you can get. While you're on the ground, have someone else turn the key to the 'On' position but do not try to start the engine. When the key is switched on, you should hear a faint hum, or buzz coming from the gas tank. If you hear it, then your fuel pump is working. If you don't hear it, then it has gone bad.

Good Luck!

My check engine light came on. Had just filled with gas. Now I smell gas under hood.

Don't try to start the car with a gas leaking, pop the hood and locate the leak, you need to get the codes from the computer, be carefull, you don't want to burn your car to the ground.

Car turns over but wont start. tried starting fluid in throttle body. put new plugs in it. it is getting spark. what next?

Put a timing light on one of the plug wieres and crank. If you don't see a flash, your coil isn't hot enough to ignite gas.
