Since spark, gas and air are the basis for an engine running...check for a good, clean spark going to each cylinder, Check the choke for a jammed preheater coil that is not setting the choke properly.

SOURCE: toyota wont start

EFI= to Electronic Fuel Injection. If you have sparks, check for fuel delivery. Another is the electronic module on your distributor, but you already said you have spark and hopefuly the right "timming" too. So you checked the current and is OK, what else do we have.The computer? Remeber that Camry,is the cadillac of the Toyota. Some even have Lexus parts. So expect parts to be rather expensive!.

SOURCE: i have a 2001 camaro with a 3800 v6 it cranks but

The crank sensor is what pulses the ijectors,and makes the spark,so I would start at the crank sensor.Let me know how you come out.Check for any blown fuses also.Ecm fuse would cause this,but it may be called anything ,so check all fuses.

Wondering why this type of car is losing pressure

Try a new fuel filter first. From there have someone check the fuel pressure regulator and then the pump. If you are in need of a new pump, take my word for it and spend the money to get one from a Dealer, and not from your favorite parts store. Most parts store parts are made in China and they are JUNK. At least get a OE pump. If the pump has never been replaced, its probably time for a new one.

It wont start after sitting over night but will turn over really good

Verify that you have fuel pressure the next time it does this, more than likely you don't. Cycle the key from off to on about 10 times before you actually attempt to crank it over. If it fires up after doing this then you have a bad fuel pump and your loosing system pressure over time beacuse its leaking down back through the fuel pump. Replace the fuel pump, fuel filter, and the fuel pump relay.

Put in a fuel pump and fuel filter and now have no pressure in the fuel rail

I dont know the year so it is difficult to be specific.Is there enough feul in the tank for the feul pump to pick up.Some feul filters have the same connections on both sides and can be installed backwards, this will cause a restriction because feul will only flow one direction.Can you open the feul cap and hear feul pump turn on for 3 seconds when the ignition switch is cycled.Let me know if i can help?

1998 Dodge Caravan. engine dies and wont start. fuel pump was changed twice but i get a few miles & dies again & wont start. im thinkin fuel filter is plugged....

It might be your fuel filter. Also, Dodge and Chrysler is bad for fuel pump failures. A clogged fuel filter can cause this. Also, you might not be getting enough fuel pressure. There should be a test port on the van, where you can test the gas pressure. You also have a fuel pump relay or switch. This could be bad as well. Hope this helps you.

I have a 2001 chevy silverado 1500 with a 4800 vortec engine. it starts and idels fine but when ever i give it gas, the engine starts to sputter and dies. ive already changed the fuel filter and spark plug...

This sounds llike weak feul pressure, the fuelpump may need replacing, the first thing to do is have the fuel pressure tested and if the pressure is low then have the pump replaced. the pump is located inside the fuel tank and the tank will need to be dropped to replace the pump, good luck ,

Vehicle won't get feul to crank. we replaced fuel

Of course you will need to check to see if the fuel pump is actually pumping, or damaged. I suggest that you remove the fuel filler cap, then have someone turn the ignition switch on while you listen through the fuel fill inlet to see if you hear the pump turn on for a few seconds then off. If you're hearing nothing and have no fuel, either the vehicle is not telling the pump to turn on, (verify voltage at the pump electric connection) or the pump is bad.

Generally, when you turn the ignition on, you should hear the pump for a second or two as it builds pressure, after replacing the fuel filter, you may need to do this several times to get pressure to the injectors, and to do that, just cycle the switch to on, then off, in 4 or 5 second intervals. The pump if working, will build pressure eventually allowing the vehicle to start. No need to crank, until you have fuel pressure, Just to "ON", then "OFF" several times.

I hope that you took the time to put some fuel injector cleaner (1/2 filled w/Gumout) into your new fuel filter when replacing it, it's a cheap fuel injector/fuel system cleaning method I've used for years when replacing fuel filters. It can cause a sputter or two initially, but does a good job.

good luck
