Can either be fuel filter is dirty or fuel pump is going and there may be a short or burnt wire on the fuel relay. they should all be located in the same area.

Will not start


Gas, air, compression, and spark is all the cylinders need for the engine to run. No start is usually gas or spark related. Here's the fuel check on fuel injected cars. Turning the key to on will start the pump for 2 or 3 seconds to pressurize the system. When the engine is cranking over the computer turns on the fuel pump relay again, so the pump will be on. And stays on after engine is running to keep high pressure against the fuel injectors. The computer times the injector pulse to spray gas into the intake or into the cylinder at the right time.
So if you have a no start, to check for gas, listen for the pump- a distinctive hum or buzz from the tank, check the fuel pump fuse, see if you can feel or hear the fuel pump relay click when someone turns the key to on. (Did you remember to check if the tank has gas?). Finally, you would have to check for power on the fuel pump wire at the tank connector, while someone holds the key in start. If you have power there, it's likely you need a new fuel pump. If the pump is working, well and good, but keep in the back of your mind that a weak pump that puts out low pressure can cause hard starting problems and poor running. At any rate, if you have gas up to the fuel rail, the only other thing between there and the cylinders is the injectors. Are they working? A quick check would be to remove a spark plug or two after cranking the engine over a few seconds. If they are wet with gas, the injectors are injecting. Hope I've helped you out some. I know some people who say to spray some starting fluid into the air intake to check if you have a gas problem with starting- I've done it myself. But I've learned it's better to use carburetor cleaner spray instead, it burns cleaner and something about the potentially harmful effects of starting fluid, well. good luck.

My 96 yukon wil not start. Sounds like it will crank over but won't. It is not the fuel. I changed the ignition coil still won't start.


try spraying some carb cleaner into a vaccum hose and see if it will run. If so then you have ignition but no fuel delivery. If not then you have an ignition problem. make sure you hear the fuel pump hum when you turn the key to the run position. It should run for +/- 5 seconds then shut off. remove gas cap and listen for fuel pump operation through the fill hole. If you can hear the pump then you have a fuel injection issue. If the engine starts and runs for a few seconds then shuts off then you can suspect the crank or cam position sensor. The fuel pump runs through the oil pressure switch which could also be an issue.

Are you able to start the truck with application of the gas pedal?

My 1999 accord stalls while driving or idling but starts right back up again and runs perfectly untill a few minutes later the same thing happens again and some times it can go the distance with no...


You may have some chunky contaminants in your fuel tank that are blocking the supply line,screen sock, or fuel filter. The screen sock is located inside the fuel tank on the bottom of the fuel pump and filters the fuel going into the supply line for the fuel pump. Your fuel filter is typically mounted under the back seat behind the driver, but Honda tends to move things around a bit so you may want to verify that location with your local auto parts store. If you run the tank below 1/8 frequently, that tends to draw the chunks into the sock, line, and fuel filter.You may be able to just change the fuel filter and use a concentrated quality fuel Injection / system cleaner like Justice Brothers fuel injection cleaner . Avoid "cheap" cleaners - all they do is break up your money, not the contaminants in the system. Fuel injected systems run at a much higher pressure than carbureted systems, so be careful when releasing the pressure from the filter to avoid getting sprayed. If you don't have a manual, then I would suggest getting a Chiltons repair manual for the specific steps required in changing the filter - as well as the specific location, as it may also be under the vehicle in various places. Afterwards, try not to let your car get below 1/4 tank to keep this from happening in the future, and use a can of Injection cleaner about every 10th tank fill. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

2.8 engine Would start when cool, but stall after


89 cierra? It should be DIS ignition so you can't have the timing too high. You said it has fuel and spark. Fuel pressure and injection pulse. Does it try to start if you spray carb cleaner into it?

Starts well,runs wellfor five mins but then cuts


My first guess would be the fuel filter. It is probably almost completely plugged.

1984 bronco 2-runs 15 min shuts down wont start again for 20 runs


If the fuel filter is dirty it will settle when you turn the truck off. When it runs for a few minutes the debris in the filter will get sucked into the screen and stop the fuel from getting through. If it was a starter or coil, it would not start at all.
