Question about Cars & Trucks
Cart is not getting gas. It will idle and run when I spray gas from a bottle but it will not run on its own. It sat for over a year before I purchased it. I put fresh gas in and cleaned carb as much as possible without rebuilding it.
"without rebuilding it"
let me guess what/where the problem is !!!
if its a 150cc cart, order a new carb, they're cheap enough....

I put a new fuel pump, fuel filter, and a fuel pump relay and the fuel pump is still not coming on. I am not getting any fuel. Can you please tell me what it might be.

You are saying that the engine will crank or turn over but will not start? If so then you must fine out if the engine has both fuel and spark. after that you can get into the right direction. You can use starting fluid to see is there is a fuel issue. Read the directions on the can. Using too much can harm you and/or your engine.

If they used a spray to clean the carb, then all the junk that was in the carb burned off on your plugs. You probably got a lot of black smoke out of the exhaust when you first drove the car away. Check the plugs. They are most likely gummed up with the residue from the carb cleaner. Either clean the plugs or invest in a new set. This should ensure that the car fires on all 8 cylinders. Driving on the highway, you'd be less likely to notice the problem since you need less power to move through the higher gears. If this doesn't solve your problem post back and we'll diagnose it further. Best of luck!

his problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
