Question about Cadillac DeVille

Car turns over but won't start sitting for almost a year

I just bought a 92. It has been sitting since last summer with no fuel in it. My son did a tune up and the car wants to turn over but can't. (we did put gas in). I know the previous owner never put more than a few gallons of gas in at a time. My son thinks maybe the fuel injectors are clogged. Or maybe the fuel filter just needs changing. The electronic gages aren't working either.

Trying to find out how to check fuel relay in 2007 nissan versa


Had this problem last summer: car wouldn't start, though turned over, so I bought new battery. The problem turned out to be the fuel pressure regulator, which sits atop the fuel pump beneath your back seat. For a full (if bloody and funny) repair documentary, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FaJlkQlkTg.

92 vw passat 2.0 16v wont start.


I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

Why won't my 98 tahoe start after it was sitting for a year? i bought a new battery so that is not it.


Did you put stablizer in the gas before storing it? Does the fuel pump run for 2 seconds when the ign is turned ? Have you checked the air cleaner for debris? Do you have spark? You must have air/fuel/spark to start.

The 1990 XJ6 has been sitting for the last 2 years and now won't start. The engine turns over fine. The dash gages don't seem to operate. I filled the gas tank with 5 gallons of premium gas. HELP!!!


I wish I could give you an instant fix, but I can't. Do you have spark? If so then its either your fuel pump or the CPS, crank position sensor. If no spark then it could be your coil.

My 92 volvo 240 has been sitting outside all summer. i have started it a few times and went to start it today. it won't do anything. what could be the problem and a solution?


"It won't do anything" means that there are no dash lights, no buzzers, nothing?
Any car has very slight electrical drains when it is shut off. For one thing, the clock is running, but there are a number of other tiny loads as well. With a good battery, you should be able to park a car for six months to a year and still start it.
However, if you start the car several times without running it long enough to recharge the battery, or if the drain is larger than it should be due to electrical problems or aftermarket accessories, you can get a failure to start.
Unfortunately, maintanence-free batteries don't tolerate being run completely dead very well, and many owners have unhappily found that draining an older battery once or twice was the last straw that ended their battery's life.
I suggest that you borrow a charger or a set of jumper cables to start the car, and drive it 30 minutes or so to fully charge the battery. If you have more problems, get the battery load tested at a shop that sells batteries to see if it is still OK.

'92 Chevy pu V8 will not start spray in starting fluid and it starts then starts rest of day. sits over night have to go back to spraying with starting fluid. What is the problem? How do I fix it? '92...


With your Clarifications I suggest having the Fuel Pump Pressure Tested as one other gentleman suggested that it is most likely bleeding down overnight. Another possibility would be the Fuel Filter being clogged. The factory recommendation is to change fuel filters every 30,000 miles. Many people do not even know a Fuel Filter exists on their vehicles. Some years back they were near or in the carb. Weak Ignition would be the last thing to look into as the vehicle runs somewhat normally once started and running for a while. Modern vehicles have Electric Fuel Pumps inside the Fuel Tank. This is somewhat expensive to replace but necessary maintenance after many many miles. Good Luck!
