SOURCE: wont start has fuel and has spark

RC ralston
Your problem is a leak in the cpi pletium most likely the pressure line has a leak
had same problem with mine $45.00 PRESSURE LINE KIT AND $15.00 GASKET FOR PLETIUM and 2 hours labor problem sovled.
You can remove vortec cover and remove air regulator to look inside pletium. I had gas vapor on driver side . that is where fuel lines are. fuel regulator is on passenger side. turn key on and look in hole and see where fuel is spraying. taking pletium off you can again turn key on and make sure where fuel is coming from.

SOURCE: i have a 1993 s10 blazer 4.3l 6cyl cpi. this truck

I had the same problem in my 91' s10 blazer. Drain the tank, then put about 5 gallons of premium gas. After that put fuel system cleaner and sea foam in the tank. Let it sit their for about an hour. try to crank up the car (you might have to put gas right on the carb until the gas in the tank gets to the engine). If that dose not work you might want to take it to a shop and have them clean the fuel system by hand. It might also be the fuel sensor. I hope this helped also up date us on other problems and if any of our suggestions have helped.

SOURCE: 1993 s10 4.3 starts fine, while idling it dies.

only half way there if you have a tbi check the crank sensor/ cam sensor that is the first line of business on that truck if the crankshaft sensor fails the truck stops dead when you wait a few minutes the sensor re energizes and the truck will work again for a bit antiknock can cause similer problems but not while the truck is running

I've got a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee with the 5.2 v8 fuel injected Holley throttle body. My problem is while driving at soft or low acceleration it accelerates fine, but if you hit the throttle hard it

I would check the voltage on the throttle portion sensor with the engine off from idle to wide open throttle.If there are any dead spots, replace the sensor. If the tps checks out, you should check fuel pressure. If you have good fuel pressure, you may want to make sure there isn't a lot of slack in your timing chain. I don't believe you mentioned the mileage of your vehicle. Best of luck.

Would a faulty electric fuel pump relay be the reason there is no power going down to the fuel pump in a 2002 suzuki grand vitara 2.0 rhz diesel engine

To test fuel flow, have a 2nd person stand over air filter (air filter housing open) with a can of starting fluid in one hand. Don't give any throttle, then 2nd person gives 1-second squirt into air filter while you're turning starter motor (no throttle). When engine catches, immediately give one third to one half throttle. Just before it dies, 2nd person should give another short squirt of starting fluid to keep engine from dying. If throttle won't keep engine running and only starting fluid keeps it running, then yes, no fuel is going through fuel lines. Either its a fuel pump issue or maybe there's restriction because of clogged dirty fuel filter. If it starts but runs rough and has black exhaust smoke, then its clogged or dirty fuel injectors.

My car bucks when driving it will die repeatly engine will race. shut it off for a little while start again and it will be fine for a while then will start doing it again

Lawn mowers have had that problem before and what it was is rust or a object in the fuel tank blocking the flow of gas you might try changing the fuel filter there could be contaminate in the fuel line one way to test that would be to disconnect the fuel line from the engine and aim it in to a gas can and have some one turn the key to the on possition watch the flow to see if it sputters if it does theres the problem , then you should replace the fuel pump and filter as well as the inline filter.

Well, I would check the fuel pressure at the injector rail with a gauge before I replace the pump assembly.
It could be a throttle position sensor or something else, but a faulty sensor should also turn the check engine light on.
It might be a dirty throttle body too.

When step on gas it has slow acceleration, no horse power, engine dies.

Is your check engine light on?

It sounds like it could be you TPS (throttle position sensor)

If it's not getting the right signal when you step on the gas pedal, it won't let the computer know what position it's in, when the throttle is open it will let in to much air, but not give it enough fuel for that amout of air.....

Humming may not mean pumping up to pressure. Has anyone put a fuel pressure gauge on it to confirm its up to spec? One thing you can try, is to remove air inlet hose from air cleaner where it attaches to the throttle body. With key off, open throttle up and give a good spray of WD-40 into the throttle body. Now try to start it. If it fires up briefly then stalls, then you have a fuel delivery problem, probably fuel pump, but try changing fuel filter first, in case it's plugged, causing low pressure at engine. If you have to change the pump, you'll want to change the filter as well anyway.

Van dies after 10 min drive when pulling into

Try removing the idle speed motor on side of throttle body, and spray it clean, as well as the port it came out of, with throttle body spray cleaner. Don't pull and extend shaft of idle motor, just leave it in position it's in, and make sure you don't lose small "O" ring on idle motor. Re-install and try it. If it cures it for a while, then starts to do it again, replace the idle speed motor.

Engine wont fire until fuel is poured in throttle body

1993 s-10 should have a 4.3 engine. Your symptoms tell me your throttle body injector is clogged, and only allows so much fuel to pass through it. Therefore, on a idle there is not enough fuel coming through to keep the engine running, or to start it. If you replace the throttle body injector your issue should cease.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
