Question about 1989 Isuzu Pickup 2WD

1 Answer

Car will not start or stay running

I have a 1989 Isuzu Pickup 2.3 that will not start unless i poor a little gas in to the Carb, which is brand new. Once I put the gas into the carb it will start for a breif sec. and then it dies. I was thinking it may be the fuel pump. I am going to check by diconnecting the fuel side of the filter and turn the key over to see if any fuel comes out. If not then it would have to be the fuel pump. Has any one elsa had this prob.

Put a fuel pump in. Remove right front tire to get to it. Be sure it has fuel in the tank and not a faulty gage .

Isuzu Pickup 1989 multifunction turn switch headlights wont stay on


both high and low beams fail?????
if highs fail, does pressing the flash lever wake up HIGHS?
all 4 elements fail, hi and low? left and right?
a Blast from the Past,
not many 89 cars on the road today.
nor any working 100% , not ever. that old. (unless i own it)

head lights on this car are cave man simple.
super simple... so simple any tech can fix them.
a fuse , light and a switch, and Zero computers or NASA engineers needed.
i do blast from past here., my bag.
first i tell you now,, im answering for USA only
as Canada cars have DRL lamps, we dont.

this is 1987 , no 89 in my set.

there is the path that is broken.
try a fresh fuse first. they can have internal cracks(micro)
50cent fix if lucky.
check for burned pins

91 isuzu pick up sat for 2 years and now wont start


I\'d try 2 things. One, some, or many, motors and fuel pumps, even electric ones, need to be "primed".
You might try to figure out how to suck the fuel from the tank up to the motor somehow.
I do not necessarily mean using your mouth.
You could also take a rag and an air hose, and GENTLY blow air into the gas tank to "prime" the system.
Another thing is, is there some part of the engine where gasoline could have congealed or turned to gummy deposits preventing the gas flow?
This is why they suggest mowers and generators be run until they run out of gas before storage, to prevent gummy deposits caused by evaporated gas.
Be blessed.

Put a 1989 2.3 carb on my 1986 2.3 isuzu will not start even when i poor gas in the carb


1. check the spark plugs and make sure that it has igntion
2. check the compression and make sure that it is good
3. if the 2 above hold true then check the timing belt (if this engine has one) to make sure that it did not jump timing. If any of the timing belt teeth (rubber notches) are missing from the belt then it has most likely jumped timing. If it is a non interference engine(means that the valves will not hit the pistons if it loses cam timing), the belt can be replaced and retimed and athe engine should run again.

1987 Isuzu pick up 2.3 . Carburetor runs much to rich. My gas mileage has gone from 27 mpg to 17 mpg. You are also able to smell the fumes due to the carb. not running properly.


It's either a stuck float or the choke is staying closed. If you're smelling gas, then it's probably the float. You need to rebuild the carb.

I have a 1989 cadillac deville 2 door front wheel drive i just changed the fuel filter in it and i pour fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank. when i pour gas in the carberator it gives a little start to...


absolutely. if you pour gas in the carb, and it runs, then dies, you have a fuel delivery issue. if u put a new fuel filter on , and then let it sit for a year, it can still be a problem. fuel gums up and clogs up stuff, so it could be the jets on the carb are clogged, the fuel bowl is clogged with gummy fuel, the fuel lines could have a clog, or it could be a bad fuel pump. but if your like me and you forget to drain fuel and then dont drive the car for a year, you have something clogged up with bad gas and it needs to be cleaned / rebuilt.

Will not start or stay running


Go ahead and put a fuel pump on it. If you remove the right front wheel you will be able to get to it. Since it is under the manifold. Be sure it has fuel in the tank and not a faulty gage.
