There might be something wrong with the accellerator lever (soz about spelling), or if not that check ur spark plugs, try replacing some of them if not all of them, they might not be sesitive enough, if all else fails try taking it to the shop and see if they can fix it.

Stored 2 years... wont start. What should i check?


Sounds like you have spark and no fuel.
Could be bad gas, sludge in the fuel line or injectors, or a failed fuel pump.
If you check fuel pressure with a gauge and it is normal, you may need to drain the tank and clean out the injectors.
Gasoline turns to shellac after several months, which acts like varnish.

My 2001 tundra turns over and everything works but wont start has half tank gas


If it has known good spark and fuel pressure try spraying carb cleaner in the throttle body while cranking engine to see if it will crank.

Acts like it is out of gas. wont start


Get a can of spray starting fluid from any parts store or hardware store, spray it into the intake of the engine and see if it starts and quickly dies out, if so you have no fuel delivery, most common reason is a defective fuel pump, this is esp true on high mileage cars and trucks.

My tahoe acts like it is going to start but wont like it isnt getting gas. i had pump replaced approx. a year ago


The pump could have still went out. Spray a little starter fluid in the throttle and have some to start it. If it starts keep spaying it a little to keep it running. If it cut off, then most likely the pump or filter need to be changed. Or a fuel pump relay keeping the pump from kicking on. Usually you can open your gas cap and have someone to just turn the ignition on while you listen at the gas hole for a faint or buzzing type sound. This is letting you know the pump is kicking on.

Have an 03 navigator that wont start, the started is turning over put no catching, acts like it is not getting any fuel


Verify that it's not getting gas by putting a few tablespoons of gas or spraying the throttle body with starting fluid (Ether) and then trying to start.

If it starts that way, then you have a fuel delivery problem, and not a spark problem, as it has gas and spark when you do the latter step.

It wont start it acts like its not getting enough gas


is it gettingf gas? use starting fluid from the local parts store (about $4) to spray into the air intake hose to the engine, if it starts for a quick second then you have no fuel and almost certainly need a fuel pump, the fuel pump is electric and is located inside the fuel tank, the tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump module aswsembly.

Wont start. acts like its out of gas


does it have fuel pressure? to test this get a can of Starting Fluid from any auto parts store and spray it into the hose that supplies air to the engine, if the engine starts and stalls the fuel pump is defective in the gas tank and will need to be replaced.
