SOURCE: will not start

Check battery voltage, clean cables. Then replace oil pressure switch. Then check/replace fuel filter. Finally add gas treatment to tank.

SOURCE: truck won't start, can't hear either fuel pump 1992 Ford F 150 5.

If you can't hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position trying to build up fuel pressure, it is most likely either a voltage issue at the fuel pump or you need to replace the fuel pump. Have you checked your fuel filter? Try turning on the key without engaging the starter and see if you hear the whine of the fuel pump.

Good Luck

SOURCE: I have a 1986 Ford LTD Crown Victoria Station

you may also check your fuel pressure module...it is located behind your throttle body, near the firewall. I was able to isolate a vacume leak in that same area with the same symtoms before starting the car, although mine runs an idle ok, it hesitates and will not run smoothly down the road...in my case, it still may also be a failing fuel pump...the best analogy to describe is like sucking on a pop straw that is cracked, you can see the pop comming up the straw, but it's not enough to quench the thirst

SOURCE: Problems with my 97 Honda CRV. Erratic idle,

It could be the main relay and/or the ecm. Or it could be the distributor timing off.

Could be the ignition switch. Honda issued a recall on 1997 CRV ignitions in 2002.

Vehicle dies when coasting after acceleration, or when coming to a stop.


The first thing to try is to get a can of throttle body cleaner from Autozone or Walmart and clean the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve, they get get gummed up and that causes the annoying stall.

If it has a caby then check why the float is not controlling the needle and seat that controls the amount of fuel into the carby. Check the needle and seat for something like a hair or the rubber on the needle is cracked or the seat is loose in the carby body. Concentrate on the carby as the over fuelling problem is in that area. Check that the choke is not coming on

97 voyager 3.0L stalls at stops and turning shows running rich


You may have two different problems.
The rich mixture could be several things including a faulty O2 sensor or leaking injector. If a sensor fails it should set a code in the computer.
The stalling could be a dirty throttle body or a problem with the idle speed control valve.

Durango starts sometimes. then acts like its getting no gas and dies. if i stomp on gas it will keep running till i let off. bad gas ? fuel filter ? fuel pump?


I would suggest starting with the less expensive solutions first. If you pull the air intake hose off the throttle body and open the throttle with the engine off look down inside if it is black try spraying it out with throttle body cleaner make sure to spray it out good. Afterwards start it you may have to keep your foot on the gas for a few minutes to make sure it doesn't stall then take your foot off the gas pedal and see if it stays running if it does your throttle body just needed cleaned. Note do not use carb cleaner use throttle body cleaner only, carb cleaner can damage the sensor in your throttle body.

I install a fuel pump but can't get any fuel to the throttle body. the fuel pump runs but it won't go through the throttle body?


hi.. so is it a carby or direct inj or throtle body inj ? if its a carby then you may need to clean out the jets, if not then the fuel does not neciserily go through the throttle body, just make sure your fuel lines are on the correct way, they are easy to confuse and usualy the most common mistake... if it is a mechanical fuel pump to a carby try starting useing 'easy start' aerosol can and it might help **** the fuel through... also if the carby is empty it will be hard to get fuel in so you can help by tipping some fuel into the carby pots..

Good chance that the idle Air Control (IAC) valve is dirty with carbon and needs to be cleaned. You can clean it by cleaning the in side of the throttle body with Throttle body cleaner (follow the instructions on the can), you can pick up a can at any parts store like Auto Zone. Disconnect the air intake tube from the Throttle body and spray the cleaner throughout the throttle body, make sue your clean the throttle blade and IAC passage way. Once your done with cleaning the throttle body and IAC passage way, just make sure you spray enough through the IAC passage way to ensure you get the IAC cleaned also. Once everything is cleaned, put everything back together and turn the ignition to the run position for 30 seconds and then turn it off for 10 seconds and then start the car, this will reset the IAC and if there is lots of smoke coming from the tail pipe. That.s normal, it's just residual cleaner and carbon burning off and will take no more then 10 min. This should clear up the problem, but check the wire leads to the IAC on the side of the throttle body for any damages like corrosion and after cleaning the IAC problem is still there. The IAC will need to be replaced, but i don't think so, since you did not mentioned any check engine lights on. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know your car is running 100% again soon.
