    Check the pressures on that fuel rail or maybe the injectors are clogged (coked). If it starts with ether that means the problem is in the fuel delivery system so your pump may be working but still be weak.

Your fuel pressure should be 20-30 psi. you dont sound like you are actually getting enough psi
especially if it will run on ether

Engine turns over but won't start


Start with testing the coil. Disconnect the wire and have someone crank the engine to check for spark. The spark should jump about 1/4 inch. If spark is good, suspect fuel problem. Spray some ether into the intake while the engine is cranked. If it starts and then stops, it is a fuel problem. Your battery is probably going to go dead with all this cranking, so keep a charger on it. Also give your starter time to cool between long cranking.

Can not start engine


Check your Inertia switch. It is either behind a front kick panel or in the rear cargo area. It shuts off the power to the fuel pump. Simply hit the reset button and the fuel should flow again.

Let me know if this helped.

How to repair gas pump


First thing to try and do is to pull the air intake hose off between the throttle body and the air cleaner box. Have someone try to turn it over while you are spraying ether into the throttle body with the flap open. If it starts and dies then you have a problem with it getting fuel. If this is the case then start by replacing the fuel filter (it is under the drivers side of the vehicle right around the door). When you do this you should see an aluminum line that is running to the fuel injector under the hood. Following that line you should see a black cap and under that cap is a pressure relief valve. Qhile someone is trying to start it push down on that to release any air in the fuel line from changing the filter out. When you see fuel come out release the valve and It should start right up. If not , after you release the valve spray some ether in the intake and when it starts put the gas until it stays running and then it should be good to go. To replace the pump you have to drop the gas tank.

Hello. If you remove the fuel filters and fill them with fuel, then hold the accelerator pedal to the floor while cranking the engine it should start. If that does not work, spray a little starting fluid (ether) into the air intake while cranking, just use the ether sparingly. This should get you going again, good luck.

If you have a spark tester, plug it into a spark plug then place the spark plug wire on the other end. Have someone to turn the engine over while you watch for spark. If you have spark, now you can make another test. Spray some ether into the air intake or throttle body, you might have to take the air intake line going to the throttle body off to gain access to the throttle body, but after spraying the ether into the intake, try to start it...if it attempts to start, your problem is fuel related, you stated that you didn't have much knowledge about cars, so at this point you will need to decide whether you want us to try to talk you through it or, get a qualified mechanic to work on it for you.

2003 Jetta TDI Turns but does not start


If it starts when pulled by other vehicle then Glow Plugs. othervise check the Ignition Key Contacts, might be worn out.

I neither of those then give me some more information. What exactly engine it is, maybe u know engine code.

when you checked the fuel line fuel flowed when u tried to start the engine while the fuel line was disconnected from intake? have you checked the injectors? are they spraying fine or there's no command.

1996 Dodge Intrepid with a 3.3L engine that won't run!!!


great you got it running... who would have dreamed someone would have filled the car with the wrong gas. E85 has alcohol in it. it will dry out and decay certain plastic and rubber type parts in the fuel system if the car was not made for this type fuel.

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump


If it has glow plugs or an intake heater you will need to disable the circuit. Then you can use a small amount of ether to spray into the air cleaner.!!! If you spray too much and/or Dont disable the circuits you can damage the motor!!! When you spray the ether, if the engine starts and stalls then its not getting fuel. This could be related to the fuel pump, injection pump, the fuel system loosing its prime(fuel line leak), fuel shut-off valve or solenoid. If it doesn't start then it could be related to your timing, valves or maybe compression.
