Question about 1991 Dodge Spirit

1 Answer

Intermittently the car will not start. It acts like it is starving for gas, yet the tank is full. Any ideas

Sometimes if I click i just click the starter, you know turn the keys on for a hot second then off, it will catch and start. If I wait for an hour or two it will start. Any ideas?

    Thank you for your suggestions, I have already replaced the starter, the starter celonoid, the relay, the fuel filter and the alternator and battery. The fuel pressure is reading correct. I guess the starter is the only thing left. I just don't understand why it is itermittent like this.

SOURCE: car wont start! has full tank of gas, battery is fine!

Ensure that your fuel pump is okay. You might need to make a change on that cos that will definately be the cause.

Rate this please.

Perhaps it's a stuck carburetor float valve, bad fuel pump (if it has one) or clogged fuel filter.

My 93 firebird starts but sputters and dies


I agree with Dennis on checking the fuel pressure.
Could be a bad pump, restriction in the tank, vent problem in the tank, bad fuel filter, or bad pump relay.

Acts like it is starving for fuel changed fuel filter serveral times it will sometimes run good for 10 miles


It could be the fuel pump, not the fuel filter.

The fuel pump is usually located inside of the gas tank.

Hope this helps!

I left my 1996 gmc seirra 1500 sit real low on gas,And now sometimes it will start and sometimes it will not,when it does it cranks for a while now it wont start it acts like it is starving for gas when it...


I don't know how long you let it sit or what climate you are located in so.... From what you said I would guess you have had water condensation in the tank. I would change the fuel filter, fill the tank with fresh fuel and add a container of "water remover" to the tank. If water is the problem this will allow the water to be mixed with the fuel in a very small percentage and burn it along with the fuel. Full or almost full tanks do not condense water. Empty or almost empty tanks do when allowed to sit for a while.

My truck acts like it is starving for gas


You need to check spark plugs/wires/distributor cap.
Also good idea to check/replace fuel filter/air filter. It might be also bad fuel pump.
Good Luck
