Sounds like your fuel system may be gummed up. Try seafoam. Could be fuel pump. Is this carbureted or EFI. Check fuel pump.

SOURCE: CANT GET VW BEETLE STARTED

hi if its not been started for five years and it is trying to start but just won,t keep running get someone to tow you and jump start it because i suspect the compressions will be low due to a build up of damp carbon valves sticking all in all the seats on the head and valve will not be seating so if you persisist with the jump start it forces the valves onto the seats and will clear the debrie if it still won,t go check your compressions yates210456

SOURCE: honda civic 1993 manual will start and run then

Check your air flow to the throttle and the hose's sometimes the heat of the motor melts it a little and airflow gets blocked when in low rpm

Drove van,parked, then it would crank but not start? I check the power to fuel pump, none. no power to injectors either I've change relays, sensors and power control module and still nothing, please h


Check your owners manual for a fuel shut off button/reset, normally found somewhere in the back interior of the van near the gas tank fill. If you still don't get power, try checking your fuses, make sure you check for two fuse panels....one maybe under the hood and one under the dash. Check them using a lighted probe on both sides of the fuse. Also Google 1994 dodge ram 3500 wiring diagram, much found when I did it! I hope this helps!

Car shuts off while driving


if car shuts off while driving it could be a bad crank sensor. a bad crank sensor will shut car off while driving, then it will not start for about 10 minutes, when it starts it runs fine until it goofs up again. the popping could be the sensor for it controls timing along with the cam sensor.

No not at all. The problem may be with the anti-theft system. Sometimes in older cars, especially Dodges', the theft system starts to act up even though you put the key in the ignition. You may want to have it checked out at the dealership, shouldn't cost that much just to have it looked at.

When stored outdoors for any length of time, you can get a substantial amount of condensation to form inside the fuel tank (as much as a half gallon) It will remain at the bottom of the tank and really mess with how it runs. Check fuel filter...Pour contents into a clean glass jar...If any water is found at all, you can bet there is quite a bit in the tank.
