Hi have you checked the air filter is it dirty , drain the fuel filter , sounds like the timing is out , the fuel pump timing could be one tooth out , all above is a cheap check before starting any where else .

Idles irratic and runs rough down road after warmed up


Rough on idle when the engine is warm means there are many areas to be checked and it can start with the ECM , the fuel pump and more likely the sensors, check the throttle valve, the camsensor which can be set off which might need a correction. Also the vacuum feed for auto advance needs to checked.

Must use starting fluid in the morning, after that it will start all day. What is the problem?


I would try replacing the fuel filter it could be clogged and then when you prime it with starter fluid it gives it enough pull to allow fuel to flow. when engine is cold fuel can gel so when the vehicle is warm it allows fuel to flow easy allowing it to start. that is just one of many things it could be but if you haven't changed filter in a while it cant hurt to change it and who knows that might be the problem if not you have a nice clean fuel filter anyway. If you have the diesel it pays to keep the fuel filter clean because diesel fuel will gel quicker than gasoline .

Car lazy to start


Hey bro, your diesel pump might be on the way out but here are some things to check and do and see if they help.

Replace the hoses going from the pump to the diesel filter with new ones.

Use fuel injector type clamps, NOT gear clamps they don't tighten enough to stop air not getting in.

Change the diesel filter, and make sure the drain on the bottom of it, if it has one which most do, is nice and tight.

Air bubbles in the injection lines are usually a sign of a weakening injection pump but I ran mine like that for a long time, the air works it's way through. Are you leaking any diesel? Maybe check the returns to the tank. Cheers bro.

My 1993 vw golf, diesel has been sitting for 3 1/2 yrs. what precautions beside changing the oil and putting some conditioner in the fuel should I take before attempting to get it running again?


hi, if it has been sitting for that long then the chances are the fuel has gone totally flat and wont even fire the engine up so this would need draining, change the fuel filter also.
When you fill the tank with new fuel make sure you use a good fuel additive that will clean all the fuel line out etc this will ensure that any grime has been cleaned out.

After doing this you could give it a try and see if it starts if it dont then check the plugs for signs of corrosion and change if needed.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

1994 volkwagen golf, only starts when starter fluid sprayed into air intake. After starts runs fine. after warmed up, still doesn't start without fluid


Is this a diesel? If so it could be fuel filters because that is classic signs of a fuel filter needing changed.

Engine wont fire until fuel is poured in throttle body


1993 s-10 should have a 4.3 engine. Your symptoms tell me your throttle body injector is clogged, and only allows so much fuel to pass through it. Therefore, on a idle there is not enough fuel coming through to keep the engine running, or to start it. If you replace the throttle body injector your issue should cease.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
