you probably ran it to low and sucked some trash out of the tank. try changing the fuel filter or put some gas in it because the little fuel you had in it probably evaporated over night.

SOURCE: random misfiring on pistons on a 1996 chevy suburban

1st thing to check is the intake manifold for vacuum leaks, also check and make sure the EGR valve is not leaking when it is closed, to check the intake buy a can of carb spray and sray around the top of the engine, if a leak is present there will be a very noticeable change when the spray is near the vacuum leak. To check the EGR Valve start the engine cold, wait a minute or 2 then spray water on the EGR, if it steams up the water it is leaking exhaust into the engine, this will cause a rough run as well.

Guide to starting a dead horse!
1- Spray a little starter fluid down the carbuerator. If it tries to fire, your timing and ignition is probably OK. This could indicate a carb or fuel pump problem.
2- If it doesn't fire, check out the points, condenser, coil, distributor cap and rotor. Look for condensation inside the cap. Check that the high tension wire from the coil to distributor is in good shape and not touching the engine or any brackets,etc.
3- Verify that your timing is correct. You may have a timing train problem (Worn or broken).
4- The distributor may have come loose and changed positions. Check for proper timing.
5- It may be a compression problem. If it has set long enough for the oil that coats the cylinder walls to drain down, you won't have enough compression to allow firing. Check your compression and if this seems to be the case, remove the spark plugs and squirt a little Marvel Mystery oil, or similar light weight oil into each cylinder. When it starts, it will smoke for a few minutes, but that will go away.
Hope this helps and if not, get back to me.
Have a super day!

SOURCE: Cranks up but won't start. Check the fuel

This can be a tough case, You may want to start by having the ECM checked for code first, there are too many things that can cause your engine to just shut down. I would not start by just throwing parts on it; this could be costly!

Have someone scan the vehicle fore codes first!

Good luck.

New filter new fuel pump won't stay running


Well your engine has a carb, so it could be dirt in the carb, or a vac leak, or several other possible causes.
Does the choke close when the engine is first started ? Have you checked the fuel line to see if the pump is providing gas ?

97 mercury mountaineer. won't start


hi,

watch your oil pressure when cranking, you have to have some oil pressure to get the fuel system to start. you may have to find the hot wire at the relay and energize it to see if it is indeed the fuel pump going out. if its been sitting and its a 97 the fuel pump just might have went, you can also try hitting the gas tank from the outside in the middle to see if that works too. have a water hose or fire extinguisher around when your working on fuel system and leave one of your battery cable a little loose..

My gas gauge dosent work how can I fix it


You will need to remove the gas tank and replace the fuel level sensor inside the fuel tank.
The level sensor is part of the electric fuel pump "module" Here is how to change that part.
  • 1. Start the van's engine. Open the fuel cap and remove the fuel pump relay from the engine's fuse box. Look for the engine to stall, signaling that the fuel pressure is gone.
  • 2Disconnect the van's negative battery cable.
  • 3. Unbolt the fuel tank's straps and lower the tank just enough to access the fuel pump flange. You can have a second person lower the tank, but it might be easier to use a floor jack with a wood block.
  • 4Remove the small locking pin on the pump's electrical connector with needle-nose pliers, and disconnect the electrical connector. Press the retainer tabs on the fuel lines and disconnect them from the pump.
  • 5Unscrew the pump's locking ring with a strap wrench or a similar hand-made tool that can grip the large ring and turn it.
  • 6Pull the water pump out of the tank, then remove and discard the O-ring from the fuel tank.
  • 7Pry back the locking tabs connecting the inlet filter to the pump reservoir using a thin screwdriver and remove the filter. This is only needed if this filter is in good condition and you must transfer it to the new pump.
Installation
  • 8Lubricate the O-ring for the filter with engine oil and connect it to the outlet of the filter. Push the filter onto the pump reservoir's inlet and make sure the locking tabs engage.
  • 9Install a new O-ring onto the seating hole on the fuel tank.
  • 10Insert the pump module into the tank, tilting it at an angle and making sure you don't damage the filter or the pump float. Make sure the module is properly seated.
  • 11Screw the retaining ring into position on the pump module.
  • 12Reconnect the fuel lines to the pump using their quick-connect fittings and the electrical connector with its locking pin.
  • 13Connect the tank back to the van using its straps and strap bolts.
  • 14Reconnect the fuel pump relay and negative battery cable

2001 buick regal won't allow gas in gas tank


This question needs more detail. Consider trying to fill your Buick's tank by first putting gas into one of those red plastic gasoline containers. and poring from the red container into the car. Otherwise, bring your car to a mechanic.

Engine turns over but wont start. 1997 gmc jimmy


Fuel Pump or starter. Since you say it's turning over but won't start I'd say it's your fuel pump. You'll probably have to drop your gas tank to fix this problem as your fuel pump is in the tank. You might be able to just loosen the straps and lower your tank a little to access it without removing the whole tank. Check around to local junk yards for this part and you'll probably find it for half the price as new. Make sure you can get your money back if the used pump doesn't work before you pay for it though. Don't forget to run fuel system cleaner (2 bottles to a full tank) once a month.

2001 chevy malibu. I filled up with gas this morning and didn't get very far and it died. Won't start back up. What could it be?


Hello! I'm not so certain that the filling of the tank and the fact that the engine died and won't start are related...Lets get a little background...Has the car been running poorly; Or was everything in tip top shape, and after filling the tank it quit? Is the Check Engine Light on now? Any idea how many gallons you pumped in; And the octane you used? And lastly, was it an often used gas station?

I poured water in the gas tank and it burned the starter up and I replaceed the crank sensor and coil pack and still want crank


First of all, never pour water in the gas tank........

When water gets sucked up by the fuel pump, it then propels that water through the fuel injectors directly into the engine where water is not suppose to be. By doing this, you might as well return the spare parts that you have put on this vehicle, because more than likely it is just a junk yard scrap now. It won't crank, because gas is needed to make the spark plugs fire properly. Not water...

Motor turns over won't start. Cleaned terminals, put in new battery, still won't start. Removed gas cap to vent air on hot day, still won't start. Lights all come on, all electrics appear to...


Your problem may be one of the following:
First check or just replace the fuel filter. Usually located under the car in front of the rear axle, drivers side.
Next, the fuel pump may be worn out. Usually they get loud or stop working (running).
Next, check the fuel pressure regulator. Usually located on the front fuel rail, drivers side.
Is the vacuum line attached? Not leaking or rotted?
Also, do you smell a strong fuel odor when it won't start? May be one or more stuck-open injectors, or the coil pack is bad.
Checking these in the order listed will more than likely fix your problem.
The clicking noise indicates the battery can no longer run the starter, which also means the fuel pump won't run either.

It could be a fuel issue. How old is the fuel filter? Can you hear the pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key on? Try turning the key to ON without trying to start engine three times waiting for the pump to stop running each time. Then try to start the engine. If it starts, Its a form of Vapor lock caused by the extreme heat we have had lately, and a weak fuel pump.

If none of this works, try a new fuel filter first. From there have someone check the fuel pressure regulator and then the pump. If you are in need of a new pump, take my word for it and spend the money to get one from a Dealer, and not from your favorite parts store. Most parts store parts are made in China and they are JUNK.
