Carberator? or throttle body? If it's TB, you won't see the gas.

Check the fuel pressure on the fuel rail on top of the motor. Diesel fuel tends to be "dirtier" than gasoline, and I'd be willing to bet the fuel filter is stopped up.

It seems there is some kind of air entering the carburator where its not required to do so or the idling soleniod switch is malfunctioning, thus not allowing the air to enter for the engine to idle .
Also recheck the vaccum pipes if they are correctly refitted per the schematics under the hood.More over remove the idling switch and blow some air to the hole probabley theres some kind of obstruction over there .

Good Luck.

SOURCE: 88 Toy, 22R Carb, hard cold start

in your carburetor there is a priming passage. look in there with the air cleaner out and pump the butterfly it should squirt gas. if it doesn't then you need to open the top part of the carb and clean the hole with a hair clip. if this is not the problem it will be the choke but I'm 70 percent that this is the problem.

When the fault occurs you need to check the spark and also the fuel settings so as to confirm the area of fault. If there is no spark check for the TRIGGER pulses to the HT coil. If absent check on the ignition system.
Also check on the fuel pressure /fuel settings , if there is overflow or no flow of the fuel from the pump specially when it is heated up..

What would cause my Hyundai Santa Fe to start hard every time I put fuel in the tank? It doesn't mater if I just put a couple of gallons in or fill it up.

First sign of pump going bad when it is being filled fuel swirls the dirt around in the tank and when you go to start it it is hard. after the pump is running it runs fine til the next time.

1987 f150 if i dump gas into the carbirator it will run but to turn it over it wont start

This is a difficult problem to solve because it seems like you have fuel that you can see and won't run; and then when you add fuel manually, it runs.

The TPS throttle position switch is suppose to regulate the fuel dumped into the engine..
You may have a dead spot on this switch. Another part, a crankshaft sensor, is suppose to report to the ECM about its' revolutions. The ECM then increases fuel pressure to match the RPM.

Since you changed the fuel pump you need to check the fuel pressure.ed

Wont start..i put gas direct and i can run it from here to china

This is common , the problem will be low fuel pressure due to weak fuel pump. this can be check with a fuel pressure tester, the fuel pressure regulator could be bad, thats located inside the upper intake, and last spider injection system.

A fuel pressure tester can answer and slove this problem, i will bet it is a weak pump, the pump will run the truck but will not start it, sounds crazy but ture, all it takes is about 3 to 4 psi low and it will not start, it may also be a bad pressure leak down valve which is part of the fuelpump, good day

Why does my truck start some times and when it sits for a few days it acts like its not getting any gas all it does is turn over never hits

Dependig on the mileage on the engine there are three things that come to mind but are not all that could cause the problem you are experincing. One if the fuel pump check valve is worn out it could allow the fuel to drain back into the tank and would cause it to take longer to start. On GM engines when you turn the key to the on postion the pump will run for two seconds so turn the key on and off about 6 times before starting, if it starts right away you have found the problem. The second issue is the oil pressure switch it controls the fuel pump if there is no oil pressure then it won't allow the fuel pump to run, again this could be caused by the oil draining out or the oil pressure switch is going bad, They normally leak a little oil on the outside if they are going bad, but not always. So try the first test before starting then try to start if it starts up it's fuel pump if it is still hard to start check the oil pressure switch the oil pressure switch cost about $20.00 and can take a half hour to change depending on the engine in the truck the v-6 or v-8. If you change the switch try the first test again if it is still hard to start it may have low compression low or no spark plugged air filter and so on. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

I just replaced the fuel pump on my 1987 toyota camry and it is still not delivering gas to start the vehicle can it be the fuel pump relay?

You bet.

Also check the timing belt. If the distributor is not turing the fuel pump also will not run.

Hope this tip helps.

My 97 cadillac deville wont start right away it wants to spit and sputer then after a few min it will start then it seems to run fine what is the problem? I turn the key on and the fuel pump runs. I let it...

There are a number of think's that could cause this . wont start right away when ? First start of the day ,anytime ? Testing would have to be done to know for sure . IF it seams to run fine after it does start ,it would be a fuel pump or filter problem . More then like a fuel management system sensor problem . mass air flow sensor comes to mind . But having a qualified repair Tech . looking at scan data on a professional type scan tool Should be the thing to do.

Plus checking fuel system for bleed off .

Has a hard time starting. Seems like no gas

"Seems" is a bad word when doing testing...You need real pressure tests done with a gauge attached to the fuel rail. I hope you kept the pump submerged in fuel when you ran it off the battery...they will quickly fail if run without cooling and lubrication provided by fuel ...many failures can be traced to running tank low a lot or running out of fuel for that very reason (also dangerous...spark near fuel can start a fire!!! )

My Mazda mx3 starts up idles for a couple seconds then dies.

Before you replace the fuel pump, I would check the cheaiper parts first. Such as fuel filter and injectors.
