Question about 1996 GMC Suburban

Truck would not start, gave it a blast of ether, it started

Truck would not start, gave it a blast of ether when jump starting ,it started. Would not start the next morning,change fuel filter, again with the ether it started, drove it 20 miles runs great. Shut it off it cranks over but won't start. You can hear the fuel pump cycle when you turn the ignition on. Is the fuel pump not putting out enough pressure or is it the fuel pressure regulator valve? Injector?

Get your self a fuel pressure tester, hook it up to the fuel rail, you should get at least 30 psi with key on, 30 to 45 psi with engine running.

How to start 92 npr diesel in cold weather


You will probably need some Ether based starting fluid. You may have to remove air filter to shoot a 2 second blast into the intake - but first try shooting the air intake with the 2 second blast and start vehicle. Diesel fuel tends to thicken in cold weather and a fuel additive like Lowes diesel fuel treatment may help keep your fuel fluid in colder weather. In cold weather, like on a night of clear skies causing low temperatures, a block engine heater will help to keep your fuel fluid - along with the diesel treatment. Block heaters are not too difficult to install depending on your vehicles configuration and how much room you have at a freeze plug, and are well worth the cost.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

My 94' hyundai S coupe ran out of gas when i fill it up it wouldnt start at all ? blasted a little ether in the house and it sputters but still wont turn over.?


on an old pump when you run out of gas alot of times the pump fails. If you can start the car with ether then the pump most likley will need to be replaced. .

99 Suburban wont start


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 1999 GMC YUKON WITH THE 5.7 ENGINE HAVING TO JUMP START ALL THE TIME TO GET IT RUNNING, THE PROBLEM WITH MINE WAS THE FUEL PUMP HAD TO BE REPLACED, EVEN WHEN I REMOVED THE PUMP AND TURNED THE KEY FUEL PUMPED OUT BUT WAS NOT ENOUGH PRESSURE TO GET AND KEEP THE ENGINE RUNNING.I ALSO TRIED STARTER FLUID, THE ENGINE WOULD RUN UNTIL THE FLUID BURNED OFF.SO THE SOLUTION FOR MY TRUCK WAS THE FUEL PUMP AND NOW ITS STARTING LIKE A CHAMP

My F-150 started running extremly rough and barely runs.


It seems unlikely it would be a timing chain issue. They are not really known for jumping and if it had jumped there would be other issues, not the least of which would be pistons crashing into valves if its an interference engine.

When was the last time a tune up was done? Perhaps new plugs, plug wires, distributor cap and rotor are in order based on the information you gave.

There could possibly be other issues, but based on what information you gave that is where I would start.

F150 supercrew cab won't start,,battery good


If you're using your truck to jump start another dead battery in a different car..your truck should be runing when you do that.....

If you leave your truck turned off and are jump starting another car/truck that way..you are drawing your CCA (cold cranking amps) way down, and really shortening the life of your batery..you'll be needing to get jump started yourslf pretty soon.
