Question about 1988 Dodge Shadow

Got fuel up to throttle body now.

Replaced fuel pump, fuel filter. now it won't start without starting fluid and even then only till it runs out. got manual and it suggests taking apart throttle body and cleaning. just wondering if there might might be a less labor intensive solution.

    Do you have injector pulse?

  • Philip M. Alexander May 11, 2010

    Hello,

    A few things to check. first are you getting the right amount of vacume to the fuel pressure regulator? is the vacume line intact? Next did you do a noid test by checking the connection to the injectors? You may need to check the fuse marked inj. Next you know you have spark cause the engine fired off with starting fluid. There is a hall effect switch on the distributor that at times effects the pulse width to the injectors. Also check your crank positioning sensor. All these sensors work togetther to form an algerythim to time your fuel/spark/and shift points.

    Good Luck

The way you describe this problem the cause seems to be in the fuel system losing pressure. But even then, if you crank long enough it should start. Check your fuel pressure. It may be useful to check your fuel filter.

My 5.9 dodge cummins diesel won't start, I've replaced the fuel lift pump, and the fuel filter, turns over. But will not start?


Most likely you just have air in the lines.Crack them open one at a time and bleed them with the fuel pump off and on till you get fuel.If it fires dont hit the throttle let it sit and idle and close the line.Does it fire up with a small whif of starting fluid?

95 blazer fuel prob's.


It drops when it is turned off through the return the pump might be getting weak If you keep using the starting fluid you will blow the intake off of it or it will get hooked on it and won't start without it.

My 96 crown vic police interceptor, cranks won't start without spraying starter fluid.. the car won't start without spraying starter fluid into air intake hose to carb...


starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

97 jimmy wont start


If it starts with starting fluid, this means the firing and electrical is fine,however, its not getting fuel. I suggest trying the fuel filter first,but, its probably going to be the fuel pump.
