Not enough information. Is your car a 2.0 or 2.5? Sounds like perhaps a bad fuel pump. To rule that out, try these steps. You will need a can of starting fluid and a screwdriver.
1: Locate the air filter.
2: Follow the plastic/rubber part that connects to the engine. It should be black and usually has "ruffles"in it.
3: Unscrew the clamp and pull the rubber part away from the engine. Inside you should see a plate that you can push open with the same screwdriver you used to gain access to this part.
4: Push open the plate (leave the screwdriver in it to keep it open), then spray the starting fluid into the hole. Spray for about three to five seconds.
5: Turn the key. The car should start, then turn off after the engine burns up the starting fluid you just sprayed in it. If the car starts, you probably need to replace the fuel pump, fuel filter, or both. Sometimes you can hear the fuel pump activate from the drivers seat. If not, have someone do this while you are lying down with you head (ear) near the gas tank: turn the key to the on position, but do not turn the engine over. You should hear the fuel pump turning on. If you don't, replace the fuel pump. Its in the gas tank.
6: Post back to let us know if it was the fuel pump or not. There are a few more steps/bad parts to consider if your fuel pump/filter are working.

Make sure you are getting fuel to the engine. Your fuel pump (usually in the gas tank) may be bad. If it is getting fuel, then likely it has an ignition problem (no spark).

SOURCE: Battery not charging in Mazda Millenia year 2000

Sounds like a similar problem I had. I had a bad battery. Jumping the car and charger did not help. All instruments work as I am guessing the battery had enough juice to light those but not enough to start car. Either bad battery or alternator. I changed out the battery and everything was fine. If you have an aftermarket stereo or amp, make sure they are setup right. The amp may be drawing power even if radio and car is off which may attribute to low start power (including above suggestions).

SOURCE: how do i drain the fuel tank on 2001 mazda mpv

Why was this suggested? Did water get in it or another substance? If it's just been sitting in a safe place and it runs fine u should be ok. Go get some gas treatment and put it in there.

Change the tank gas cap. When it is clogged, vacuumbuilds in the tank; this prevents the gas flow to the engine.

My crwn vic wont turn over sounds like wants to start but wont has half tank of gas,where is fuel filter,and fuel pump? my car is 1988.


If it doesn't turn over it may be your starter going. or a weak battery. start with that first, insufficient fuel pressure won't prevent you car from cranking, but weak battery or bad starter will. If you can jump it and it starts its probably the battery if it doesn't crank then its probably the starter. Good luck

Car wont start


THere is no gas in the fuel rail at the time gas is running out. WHen you fill the tank, it needs to pump for a while so fuel can fill up the rail then the Fuel distributor so it can build up pressure for the injectors to work properly. It need to continue cranking at least 2 minutes. However you don't want to run out the battery, so can just turn on the key to hear the sound of the fuel pump stops, then turn key off turn key on again. Repeat this for 6 times then start the engine. The reason for it is that every time the key is on it turns on the fuel pump to prime the line then turns pump off after a specific time, then it turns on again only when key is at ignition position. By doing this you help to pump gas into the fuel rail instead of the starter continue cranking draining down battery fast. Cheers.
