Fuel pump needs 12 volts, 11.5 volts will not pump fuel. Under the van, below the drivers seat, there is a plug going to the fuel pump. Unplug the pump and check voltage while crannking the engine.
Or clean the battery terminals (both positive and negitave) and cable connections. The poor connections are most likely the preblem. It should also be noted that a vehicle this old probably needs the battery cables replaced, the post clamps become brittle and will not transfer voltage as well as clamps that are malable.

Have some one at the rear or near the fuel tank, if you do not hear a humming from the tank when you turn the key on then your fuel pump needs to be replaced but look at all your fuses and relays first

I changed the fuel pump but the van still won't


And you know the fuel filter is good? Could be injector problem: just as a check, spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if engine runs a few seconds. If it does, it is a fuel problem. Check injector fuse, as a start. Check fuel pressure. Check injector circuit. If engine won't start with starting fluid, check if you are getting spark. Problem may be in the ignition system.

2004 Chevy Van 2500 turns over but wont start


Try spraying starting fluid into the intake. Remove the air filter to do this. If it starts for a few seconds then you have a fuel delivery problem. If it does not, then you have an electrical problem with the ignition. there are 3 things needed for an engine to run if it turns over. Air, Gas, Spark (fire). No air filter solved the easy air issue. Add starting fluid answers the fuel issue. Only leaves spark after that.

My starex van won't start. The model is 2006 CRDi, automatic diesel. I'm so happy with the performance until I experienced that it was difficult to start it. But once its running, it runs pr


My friend had a similar problem. When he had it checked, he was told to spray staring fluid on the air filter and it started. So, he was told that if it starts by spraying starting fluid on the air filter, the problem is with the fuel pump. If not, the problem is electrical. So far, my friends starex diesel AT is running smoothly. Hope this will help you. Cheers.

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

Starts then dies & won't restart


check fuel pressure, should be 40 psi.
try 2 things

spray starting fluid in air intake to see if it will stay running. It's fue then.

Try turning key to on nd wait 5 seconds for system to build pressure and pump to shut off. Turn key off, wait for relay clcik noise or 10 seconds. then turn key to ON again and wait 5 seconds to build pressure again. Then start engine. If it starts better, you have a bad check valve in the fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator on the fuel rail (unlikely).

I have a 1988 toyota van le cargo 2.2 engine


Try spraying starting fluid into the intake of the air cleaner while someone else starts the car. Continue spraying the starting fluid for about 15-20 seconds. If the car starts, more than likely your fuel pump is bad. Check your fuses, and make sure you are getting power to the fuel pump. jpwtruck@yahoo.com

Sounds like it needs a new fuel pump. Get a Fuel Pressure Gauge and check it make sure it up to the Specs,What I think is about 35 to 40 psi without looking in my book. Also you would want to make sure the fuel filter was changed, Your getting spark and fuel, But You stated your able to start it with starting fluid so I would say it must be a fuel pump problem.. I hope that help you out. If not get back to me and we can try some more trouble shooting. Take Care, Bear
