Dip your tank with a wire. if quarter tank indeed fuelpump or safety valve not opening in supply under hood. Check connection. Valve is on all modern cars for fire hazard. Check the valve by takening it out and testing it. Could be wire harnes problem also. Or filter blocked.

My truck sat up for probably 3 or 4 years cranked and run fine yesterday but today it wont crank at all any ideas?


If it won't crank over, it's not a fuel issue, but a starting circuit issue. The gas may be stale, but if tank was full all that time, I don't think that would be a problem.
Pull off the small wire on the starter solenoid, and see if it has power when key is held in crank position. If power there, the starter or solenoid or the battery connections from battery to starter need to be checked or tested. If no power to solenoid when key is in cranking position, the ignition switch may be bad or the neutral safety switch (or the clutch start switch if a manual) or the starter relay needs to be checked.
If you get it cranking, and still no start, look down the throttle body bore and watch your injector spray pattern while the engine is cranking-you should see a fine, cone spray pattern coming from the bottom of the injector. If it just drips and no cone pattern, or no gas coming out, injectors need cleaning (probably from stale gas). Good luck.

Had about 4 gal of diesel in tank and someone put 5 galons of gas in tank. Drove a mile and stopped for not sure how long. Went back out to start and would not start.


it all depends on how much diesel remained in the tank before the gasoline was added, and how new and sophisticated the diesel engine is. In a 2007 or newer clean diesel engine, any amount of gasoline will probably damage the sensitive emissions control components (DPF, OxyCat and SCR) and system. In older engines with much less sophisticated and "touchy" emissions systems, a lightly diluted (say 90 percent diesel/10 percent gasoline) mix would probably pass through with little or no detriment. It might simply cause reduced engine power, perhaps a bit more noise, and possibly a sharp warning from the emissions sensors that detect something other than pure diesel exhaust. It's high concentrations of gasoline that spell real trouble. Whether a modern clean CRD diesel or an old indirect injection unit, burning straight gasoline or highly diluted diesel fuel will almost certainly result in catastrophic damage to the mighty diesel engine.

I had to repair the gas tank and replace some of the fuel lines to a Toyota T100. It started up just fine. I drove it a couple of miles and back with no issues. When we tried to leave a bit later, the...


Possibly an injector has been stuck open by debris that went down the fuel lines when you were replacing them.
Pull a fuel rail and have a very trustworthy individual hold the injectors in place. Then cycle the key into the on position. No fuel should leak from the injectors, but MAKE SURE they are held in place other wise they could shoot out getting fuel every where (They do not push very hard).
If you are uncomfortable doing this most towns have a shop that will be able to test and clean the injectors for around 20-40 dollars each.

diesel engine have small starter helpers called glow plugs that heat the combustion air so that it can self ignite the diesel fuel
reasons for hard starting are
slow cranking speed---battery not charged enough or not big enough to do the job
injectors squirting and nit atomizing--- take the car to an accredited diesel pump/ injector repair shop for tip replacement and adjustment
the check engine light could be from faulty glow plugs
keep the fuel tank full ,especially in cold climate as there is hot return fuel from the injectors that causes condensation in the tank--water -- and that promotes the growth of a fungus which damages the pump and injectors
use diesel fuel condition on a regular basis to prevent that condition or keep the tank more that 3/4 full to stop condensation occuring

2000 explorer is dying while I drive. It will start back up but with some difficulty. Could it be the fuel pump? The gauges do flicker a little but doesnt seem like the alternator. I drove 300 miles...


which gauge flickers. When last did u changed your fuel filter I usually changed it every 6 months and they are not very expensive. ONce your fuel filter is dirty eventually some debris will come out of the filter then it will go to your injectors and that is not good.

1989 Chevy K2500 - idles fine but stalls out when put into drive.


Sounds like the injectors may be bad or just really dirty. You say that the truck is only used as a plow truck, so I would assume that it sits alot. If you dont add any fuel stabilizer to the tank, the fuel will start to degrade and the will gum up your injectors. One thing you can do is to pull the air cleaner assembly off and look at the injectors while the truck is running. Look at the bottom of the injectors while it is running. The injectors shouldbe spraying fuel with a fan spray of fine mist. If you see any drips of fuel in the this fine mist, that injector is at least dirty or on its way out. I would recommend that you change your fuel filter and then get some fresh fuel and the purchase some Seafoam fuel injector cleaner from your local parts store. Dont mess around with anything else. GET SEAFOAM. If it is in a plastic bottle it is not strong enough to do anything. Seafoam is in a metal can. Dump the seafoam in and run the truck as much as you can. This will help clean out the injectors.

Sounds like it could be a number of things Coil breaking down,ignition module breaking down or a failing relay.Could be ignition relay or fuel pump relay.The relay is the quickest,easiest and cheapest option to try first.
