SOURCE: 1988 Jeep Wrangler wont start.

Try your camshaft possition sensor. If it is the same as my problem I just had to replace that and it started right up. Oh and mine was built into the distributer assembly. Take off cap and pin it's the plastic thing at the bottom. Should just pop out and you have to go to the dealer to get the part. Hopefully this helps!

SOURCE: 96 Jeep cherokee ran out of gas, re-fuel, won't start. No spark.

You may have to prime the fuel pump. Or replace the fuel pump if that does not work. Why do you let it run out of gas? This is definately not good for an injected motor. It will continue to cause more and more problems. Fuel injectors should never run dry.

SOURCE: Engine wont stay running. Please help.

change the filter first. IF the pumpwas bad it wouldnt start at all. It could be going bad but the only way to really test it is to pull your gas tank and at that rate you may as well replace it.

you could have a clogged injector causing the lack of fuel as well. you can try injector cleaner, Lucas is my personal preference I use it at every fill-up. 4-6oz per tank of gas depending on your tank size.

SOURCE: HAD CORE PACK REPLACED IN JUNE 09. EVERY SINCE CAR

Maybe the fuel pump is going out have the fuel pressure checked. Or you have a defective coil pack. You should have taken it back to who ever put the coil pack on, right away when you first started having trouble.

Car ran fine driving down the road lost and died wohld not restart but cranked until battery went dead jump start still crank no start where should i look first


Check your fuel filter. If it has not been changed for awhile, it may be plugged. The car would then be starved for fuel and quit. After sitting for awhile, enough fuel may get through, but after running a short time it will die again for lack of fuel.
Another thing to check is your ability to get spark to the spark plugs. You coil(s) may have died and need to be replaced.
You could also have a crack in your distributor cap if you have one and the spark is shorting to ground. You may also have faulty spark plug wires that need to be replaced. You could also have a blown fuse to feeds battery power to the spark coil. You could also have an open ballast resistor in line with your spark coil and it needs to be replaced. Gas or Spark, but how the spark is generated really depends a lot on the car. Here's a test you can run to check for whether your car is starved for gas: Get a can of starter fuel and spray a couple of puffs (small amount) into your air cleaner. Once the battery is charged, try starting it. If it starts running and then dies, you can be pretty sure you have a gas problem.
One last possibility is that your exhaust is totally plugged. Do you feel or can an assistant feel any puffs or unburned exhaust coming out of the tail pipe? If no vapors come out, it could be plugged.
Oh, one other thing it could be. Your plugs may be flooded, especially if you pumped the gas pedal and it is a new model car. If it smells strongly of gas, your spark plugs may be wet (flooded) with gas. In that case, remove all spark plugs, disconnect your spark system, turn the engine over to blow out excess fuel, dry your spark plugs and reinstall them.

My olds silhoutte i ran out of gas and now i have gas it jirks and i cycle the key 3 time i have to oump gas peddle the it will start but soon i i quit pumping it dies and takes a wile to start again


This sounds like the fuelpump is bad, it may have been on its way out or when you ran out of gas it sucked up all the dirt at the bottom of the gas tank. it sounds like the pump cant produce the correct amout of pressure needed to keep the engine running. if you have a fuel pressure gauge you can test the pressure and know for sure its a bad fuelpump. you would connect the gauge to the valve on the fuel rail and then turn the ignition on and there should be 55psi of pressure. if the pressure is lower by more than 4psi or no pressure then replace the pump which is located inside the gas tank. i think you will find that the fuel pump is bad. good day. hope this is helpful.

Try replacing oil pressure switch. Your oil pressure switch controls fuel pump. (safety issue) in case of roll over or accident so fuel pump doesn't run while engine stalled or of.

If you hit the tank and it ran? The fuel pump is bad. By striking the tank you jarred the pump, causing what mechanics call "The last ride" Peice of sound advise, Replace with ac delco pump. The zone pumps go out usaly within months if not days

Ran out gas it wouldnt after i put gas in it i replace the gas filter still nothing


your fuel pump has probably died. When you turn the key to the on position the pump should run for a few seconds then shut off. If it is not then check your fuses and fuel pump relay. Unfortunately the fuel pump uses the fuel as a lubricant, so when you run out of gas you can sieze the pump motor. some people get lucky by banging on the pump or fuel tank while trying to start the car, but really it's probably a dead pump. check for volts at the fuel pump plug while you crank the engine. Make sure your battery is fully charged and in good condition before trying to diagnose the problem.

If your pump is working then you have another problem.

Changing the pump doesn't affect the spark so lets start a that the beginning?? Why was the pump replaced and was it running fine before changing the pump? Also plugs could be fouled as well but if it was working fine before the fuel pump it will be fine afterwards if getting gas and the fuel pump was the problem., Also how did you verify no spark??
