When you turn the key on, listen for a buzzing noise from the back of the car, only about a second or two, if you don't hear it, the fuel pump needs a new one, which is inside the gas tank, if you do hear it, check for spark at the plugs and coil.

I have a 1963 Chevy stepside with a 327 engin, after reaching running temperature, it wont start


(1)Remove the air cleaner, looking down the primary throttle bore (front) move the throttle at the carburetor. Did you see fuel spray? if so its not a fuel related issue.
(2)Next, check your battery cables. High resistance in a cable (corrosion) will get worse with heat. Heat increases resistance. You may want to replace them depending how old they are. You need to check for condition and security of how they are connected ( good tight, clean connections). Sometimes its difficult to spot corrosion with the plastic insulation on top of the cable. Corrosion is usually at the ends where the bare wire is exposed.
(3) May have a bad starter. My old Ford would crank slow when hot. Found bad cables, but eventually had to replace starter too. Works great now.

My 2002 chev. diesel truck turns over but wont start, new filter


anytime you change the filter in a diesel you have to bleed the air out of the fuel system. The pump won't auto bleed the fuel system for you. every place in the fuel system that has a flare type connection needs to be bleed, start at the connection closest to the tank, loosen the connection and then crank the engine until you see diesel fuel drips from that connection. Tighten the connection while the engine is still cranking. Move to the next connection that is going toward the engine. Continue on in that manner toward the engine until you reach the injector pump/injector. Once you reach the injector pump be VERY aware that the fuel is at VERY high pressure. Do NOT put your body parts in the stream of high pressure diesel fuel. It could kill or injure you! Once you bleed all the way to the injector pump/ injector, the truck SHOULD start. Do not bleed after the injector pump because of the pressure involved, it is WAY too dangerous.

Good luck!

Is it getting fuel and or spark? If the fuel pump is working and the the plugs are getting fire then perhaps a clogged fuel pump strainer is to blame.
If the fuel is reaching the engine, then test the coil. If no spark is event replace the coil.

I would more likely think that the fuel pump is the problem. The regulator bring the pressure down, so the vehicle would run, just rich. Disconnect fuel feed line to see if fuel is reaching the engine. If not the pump is the problem.

To start up a cold engine requires reach mixture (air-gas).In your case it seems like the choke is not working ,so cold engine cannot start.If it is an injection operated system then it must have a temperature sensor which suppose to turn the choking on when cold engine needs to get started.Either the sensor is faulty or the choke or between the two there is a faulty connection somewhere.

2000 SL2 wont start


Need to do a compression test to see if all 4 cylinders are operating properly. A loss of engine power is usually a result of wear on internal engine rings and seals.
