Question about Mazda Cars & Trucks
1991 Mazda Miata. Problem getting the engine to take fuel. The car has been sitting for five years without starting. I replaced the battery and the 80 Amp fuse. New fuel pump. The engine will turn but not start completely. The engine isn't getting fuel to it, apparently, because the fuel hose to the engine is dry. The car has a half tank of gas. When I pour fuel directly into the engine it starts and runs fine. Am I looking at a clogged fuel line or a clogged fuel filter (or both)? Any ideas? (I haven't replaced the fuel filter.) Could the car sitting have caused the fuel lines or filter to gum up?
Find the filter pull it off and clean it if u cant clean it replace it they usally are cheap on older vehicles but with the filter off turn the car have someone turn the car to the on position so the pump is pumping and see how good it is coming out of the line if not very good then your gas tank line to the fuel filter is clogged but if its fine check the next fuel line the one on the fuel rail there is a bolt on the fuel rail crack it open and have someone turn the key if gas comes out then you are getting fuel and that would mean your injectors are bad
