    Open you Schrader valve and turn the car over til you get fuel at the valve.

    is there a schrade valve (like an a/c charge port) on the fuel rail? If so, try bleeding air from rail with pump running.

Is the pump output 50-60 psi? Are you getting good fuel pressure?

2006 PT Cruiser cranks but won't start, runs on ether. New fuel pump.

Is the fuel pump relay sending power to the pump, do you have normal fuel pressure at the injectors, and are the injectors getting power and pulse from the computer ?

Replaced keyway to water pump: Won't start!

it if fires with ether then the problem is no fuel to the injectors . You say there is fuel to the injectors so that means that if the injectors are electronically controlled then there is no control for the injectors . So that means something like immobiliser not operational, cam/crank position sensor fault . I would suggest that the data link for the scanner is not being connected correctly and that is why there is no reported codes.

97 geo metro replaced fuel pump, has new timing belt, gets spark to plugs will run with ether sprayed in carb but wont stay running, has new water pump, new fuel pump relay, ...someone said check the ECM...

The cam sensor controls the injector pulse. No cam signal = no fuel. Also these cars are known for wires chaffing through on the injector harness. If any of the wires are shorted out it will kill all the injectors and result in a no fuel no start situation. Check the wiring first, normally a no cam signal will set a code and a check engine light. Make sure the fuses are good also. Hope this helps.

1992 ford explorer (normally runs very well) sat for a few weeks in winter. then would not start. even after charge up. later check with ether, it ran until ether used up and quit. I dont have test...

so, the problem is you're not getting fuel to the injectors. to check that the pump is running, simply turn the key to the on position and listen for the pump motor. have someone listen at the fuel tank. if the pump runs, the fuel lines or filter might be clogged. also, there is most likely a fuel pump relay. locate it, probably in the engine compartment in the power distribution box; and while turning the key to the on position, have someone listen for the relay to click there is also a fuel pump cut-off switch to de-energize the pump in the event of a collision. check to ensure it is not tripped. it can be reset by pushing the red button.

My 80 ford f150 v8 302 wont start up i

if this is a 1980 F150, emissionwiz is correct in saying it has a carburetor, if your engine runs on ether, you do not have fuel supply to the engine. Check fuel delivery at the front of carburetor, should be a line screwed into the carb, may be connected by a rubber hose, remove this line and crank engine, look to see fuel is gushing out of the line, if no fuel the pump is bad, check fuel lines back to pump for leaks, replace leaking lines if necessary. If you get fuel then your float inside the carb is stuck, and the carb will need some attention, hope this helps, let me know

Dodge cummins won't start, fuel reaching injector pump but no fuel coming out of injector pump.

You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?
