Check fuses and relays, might have to check wire harness for injectors, you may have a break in the wire and have to reconnect it. check for voltage at injectors one at a time see if its all or one

What causes o low injector pulse

Is that static pressure with key on, engine off? Or engine running pressure? Both should be near 60, usually key on, engine off pressure will be about 3 or 4 psi higher.
If it runs good after starting, the injector pulse must be good. No reason why starting and running pulse should be different. Only difference is when running, fuel pump power is kept on by the oil pressure switch, whereas in starting, the fuel pump relay keeps the pump on. Very unusual, let us know. Measure voltage at one of the injector's power wire with key on. It should be battery voltage or very close.

My fuel pump iz working bt my injectors are not firing

Back probe the injectors with a led circuit tester, if there is no pulse trace the injector wiring back to the ECU for a broken or bad connection. If there is a pulse the fault will almost likely be fuel. check the fuel pressure and flow , if the flow is low replace the filter, if the pressure is low replace the pump/

Car wont start

Try a little starting fluid in the intake and see if it runs a few seconds. If it does, it could be low fuel pressure or an injector problem. Maybe they aren't pulsing.
You have voltage to the injectors; now check the ground circuit: Use a test light and clip the lead to the POSITIVE post of battery. Put the probe into the ground terminal on an injector connector, and have someone crank the car over. If the test light is blinking, the ground circuit is good. When it blinks, that is when the computer is grounding the circuit for injector pulse to occur.

The dash gauges all work , fuel pumps are both good , the fuel pumps wont come on and the truck trys to fire when i turn the ignition on but wont , could this be a fuel regulator

did you check the fuel pressure pump on the frame rail for power and ground? have you verified no ignition spark to the spark plugs? have you checked for fire from the coil to the distributor cap? does the check engine light come on when you turn the key on? have you check for injector pulse and power at the fuel injectors? if the fuel pump won't come on and you have no ignition fire and no injector pulse, all of these systems are triggered by the ECM.

Hey i was wondering what would be the problem with y van i just died and when i had it in the shp he said it was a fuel problem and i put in a new fuel pump and and fuel filter and there is still it is not...

Spray starting fluid or carb cleaner into the air intake to see if it really is a fuel problem. If it tries to start, like firing for a few seconds, it is probably not getting gas to the cylinders. Then you need to check the injector circuit. If fuel is getting up to the engine, then the pump is working, but maybe not good enough-check that by testing the fuel pressure. Hook up a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail, turn key to on, and you should see high pressure on the gauge, about 50 psi, but check for manufacturer specs for the correct pressure.

The injector circuit uses a fuse for the injectors, then it applies constant voltage to the injectors when the key is in on or run or start. See if you have voltage to the injectors with the key on. The injectors will pulse when the pcm momentarily grounds the injector circuit-it grounds each individual injector internally inside the computer for a split second. This causes the injector solenoid to energize and raises a pintle inside the injector so that fuel under pressure will spray out into the cylinder.

My 1995 subaru will not start.  i have tried spraying starting fluid in the injectors the car ran for 2 seconds and died.

If the engine fired on ether it means that you have a fuel supply problem, check the fuel pump.

Crank no start: has no spark and only has injector pulse on cyl # 1. if you spray starting fluid directly into throttle body car starts and stays running and has spark and inj. pulse. once you turn the car...

Fuel pump, you have to have press in the rail to fire all injectors- she will run on ether but not good for her. Ck your pump and any related fuses,relays,wiring.

1993 s10 2.8 tbi the fuel pump fails to pressurize when the key is tunred on, and i have to fuel injector pulse. when a jumper wire is attached i can pressurize the pump but i still have no injector pulse.

There needs to be 60 PSI of fuel pressure in the system to have the fuel injectors to work. There is also a fuel pump relay on the fire wall just left to the brake booster, There is two relays there, i just can not remember which relay is which but try switching the relays with one another. Also check the fuses to the fuel pump and ECM, and the fuel pressure from the shredder valve. Good luck and keep me posted, not a bad Idea to also replace the fuel filter, and that is located at the inside frame rail under the drivers side.
