I have a 1995 Acura Integra automatic. Its been sitting for 4 months and i put have of tank of gas in it. It will not start unless i put quick start in the carburetor. Once it start while I'm pumping...


Well your car is multi-port fuel injected, so it has a throttle body instead of a carb.
Have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge to see if the fuel pump is working ? The pump or filter could be clogged up.

I HAVE A 1988 MUSTANG 5.0 THAT HAS BEEN SITTING FOR ABOUT 3 YEARS. I HAVE PUT NEW PLUGS AND WIRES ,NEW GAS WILL TURN OVER BUT WONT START


Check the fuel pressure at the Carburetor or fuel rail, depending on which you have. Most likely the gas that was in the rail or carburetor has dried out and gummed up the injectors or needle valve holes. To verify, if you have a carburetor you can pour a small amount of gas in the throttle body of the carburetor and try to start it. If it starts that confirms the problem and you will need to clean the carburetor with a rebuild.

WILL NOT START UNLESS I PUT GAS OR STARTING FLUID IN CARBURETOR RUNS BUT WILL NOT IDLE CUTS OFF.


You need to pull the fuel line from the carburetor and watch for fuel flow as someone cranks over the engine. Sounds as though the pump has gone out or possibly just blown a fuse.

1987 jeep wrangle will not start or run


Uncouple the fuel line coming from the pump at the carburetor, place a clean can under the line, and have someone operate the starter--you should have fuel shoot from the line in spurts as the engine turns. If it does, then the entry port on the carburetor is plugged. Remove the float assembly and pull out the float needle valve. Hook the fuel line back to the carburetor and try the starter again, there should be fuel pumping into the float bowl. If not, check to see if there is a filter on the fuel inlet path that may be plugged. If no filter, remove the float needle seat to see if something is blocking the fuel passage. If all else fails, use compressed air to blow backwards through the needle seat (remove the fuel line again). Hope some of this helps!

Stall upon running out of gas but won't start up again with gas


Remove the air cleaner and pour about a quarter cup of gasoline into the carburetor or throttle body. Do not stand near the engine when cranking it -- fire/small explosion hazard.
