Sounds like he may have a fuel pump problem. Turn on the key and listen for the fuel pump 'buzz' for a few seconds. If it doesn't buzz or hum the fuel pump is more than likely bad.

What could be the cause for my fuel injected car to not start?


Is it (the fuel) being injected? what is the fuel pressure reading? If you spray starting fluid into the air intake does it start but then die out? Have the engine fault codes been read from the diagnostic port under the dash in front of driver?

2000 Mitsubishi mirage 1.8 ltr 4g93 ran out of gas now it wont start. How do i get it started again.


Spray starting fluid into the air intake of the engine, it will start, if it dies out then you have burned out the electric fuel pump located inside the fuel tank, the reason is that when you run out of fuel the pump overheats and the shaft seizes up. You should never let the fuel level go below 1/8 tank on the gauge, the pump is cooled and lubricated by the gasoline it sits in, no fuel no cooling or lubrication.

My 92 maxima se just died as i was driving it.i put gas in it and it ran for 2 miles then died again


could be a fuel pump. hammer on the gas tank and see if it tries to start. if not then spray carb cleaner or starting fluid into the air intake and see if it starts and runs for a few seconds if so your looking at a bad fuel pump most likely.

Some times the car will start some times it wont


the most common cause of this is a failing electric fuel pump, to verify this is the problem buy a can of spray starting fluid at the parts store, when you have the no start symptom spray the starting fluid into the engine's air intake hose, if the engine starts and then dies you need to replace the fuel pump, the pump is located inside the fuel tank, the tank must be removed from the car to rep;ace the pump.

99 Dodge Durango Dies When Slowing


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
