Check fuel pump fuse. These don't usually burn but they are there for a reason. Fuel pumps do die here and there. Also check for a reset button on the fuel pump through the emergency access pannel on the trunk. Good luck.

1997 Honda Accord won't start every day; added thick gas solution weeks before suddenly having problem with car not getting gas to complete start up


I have never seen a gas additive that was "thick". You may have plugged a fuel filter. Should be a cheap and easy replacement to try.

Occasionally, when I start the vehicle the engine will just continue to turn over but there's no gas getting to where it needs to be. Usually, if I keep pumping the accelerator, you'll hear t


Sounds like a fuel pump issue but could be many other things too. I would start by replacing the fuel filter, it's possible its not letting in as much fuel as needed. Spark plugs are another possibility, I'd change them out if they're more than a year old (as your car gets older it will blow more oil and the spark plugs get fouled much sooner). It could be compression too, you'll need to pressure test each cylinder and verify compression is within spec (if it's not, that's a BIG repair). Also try lower octane gas, it actually ignites faster than high octane gas.

Car won;t start after fillig up the gas task


It might be your fuel pump, if you turn your key to the setting right before your car turns on and you hear nothing, it maybe your fuel pump, if you do hear a buzz then try replacing your fuel filter before it strains your fuel pump

Your gas could be bad from sitting for 4 months. If you can get it started again, try running the gas down as low as possible and fill up with 90 octane (premium) gas and a can of gas treatment. This is the easiest thing to check 1st. If it continues, could be your fuel pump going bad.

Crank no start ,got fuel got spark, when trying to start spark plugs get wet ,changed plug pinched fuel line shut try srarting flud wont start???


You pinched the fuel line????
If you crank for too long to start the car, the engine will "flood", this is why the plug was wet. It had too much gas and wouldn't start.
Pull out ALL plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
HOLD your gas pedal to the floor and crank.
This will stop gas from entering the engine.
you need to get that extra gas out beofre it will start.
If you have so much gas in there you can do damage to your engine!!
Now after a few crnaking attempts with your foot to the floor, take your foot of the gas pedal and try to start it again.
But remember if it doesn't start in 3 tries, you need to do the pedal to the floor once or twice to remove the excess gas.
When you crank the car to start it sprays gas into the engine, even if it won't start. So it very easy to "flood" the engine, and then you'll have a hard time to get it going!

Bmw m3 2003wont start


For about the last 20 years or so, most cars are equipped not to start if you press on the gas while turning the key. This is used for diagnostic purposes. DO NOT press on the gas peddle while attempting to start a fuel injected car.

Car won't start


try this, if the car wont start push the pedal all the way to the floor and hold it ther while you crank. It sounds like you are flooding the car some how. Pushing the pedal to the floor puts the car into clear flood mode and it shuts off the fuel flow. try and see just a suggestion
