THE FUEL PUMP MAY BE WORKING BUT MAY NOT HAVE ENOUGH PRESSURE TO OPEN THE INJECTORS. TEST THE FUEL PRESSURE AT THE RAIL. THERE IS A VALVE SIMILAR TO THAT ON A TIRE TUBE CALLED A SCHRADER VALVE. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A FUEL PRESSURE TESTER, THEN PRESS THAT SCHRADER VALVE AND SEE IF THE FUEL SPRAYS A REAL GOOD DISTANCE. IF IT DOESN'T, THEN TRY REPLACING THE FUEL FILTER. AND THEN TRY THE PUMP, INSIDE THE TANK. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING. GOOD LUCK

WOULD NOT CRANK CHANGED STARTER NOW CRANKS BUT WILL NOT RUN


Something intermittent is wrong with your fuel delivery system - fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, check valve.. If it always starts when you use starting fluid that eliminates spark/igniter issues. Check all electrical connections in fuel delivery components.

If the ecm is touchy it might not be sending the signal for the injectors to shoot gas into cylinders.

But I think you have a bad connection somewhere along the line.
BTW, great car - have one also. But my dealer sucks.

60 horse Work Master New Holland wont start blead lines but looses fuel to filter seems like hand pump dont work will run if you spray ether then dies when you stop spraying it. Can someone help


Earl You have to be able to bleed all of the air out of the fuel filter and lines for your engine to run. If the fuel is leaking back to the tank there is a problem with the valves in the hand primer pump.You might have to replace the pump. Remove or loosen the bleed screw on the top of the filter and pump out all of the air so there is no more bubbles then loosen the fuel lines at the injectors and turn the engine over with the starter to bleed the lines. Only crank over with the starter for 30 seconds per try and give the starter time to cool down

Will fuel pressure regulator stop engine from starting


Yes it can if it can't maintain the correct fuel pressure. I would also check that the injectors are getting a signal from the ECM.

Cranks but wont start


Likely a fuel delivery problem.

Check the filter, as it may be clogged and due for replacement. To test for fuel delivery, open your airbox and spray some starter fluid (purified ether, usually) down into the throttle body while someone else cranks the engine. If it fires up and runs for a few seconds but won't run without spraying the starter fluid, then you know you've got spark and compression. If that's the case, there could be any number of potential issues: throttle position sensor (not very common, but it does happen), fuel injectors clogged (common if you use low-grade fuel), fuel filter/strainer clogged (filters should be replaced every 30k miles or so, on average), fuel pump failure (you should hear a buzzing from the fuel pump when you crank the engine).

If the starter fluid doesn't help, then the problem is no spark. Check each plug/cable for fouling.

2001 MUSTANG CRANKS BUT WILL NOT START, THEN I SPRAY STARTER FLUID IN THE INTAKE AND IT STARTS AND RUNS LIKE NEW THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP


check you fuel pump pressure when keying the vehicle up, valve is located on fuel rail, may not have enough to start but when running and the injectors are pilsing, may flow. I would start there.
