With the ignition on tghere is a shrader valve on the fuel rail on the engine ( looks like air valve for tire) , remove cap an push down the needle . see if gas squirts out. if not you either have a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump..

Do you smell gasoline fuel ?? When there's too much fuel, it saturates the spark plugs, preventing ignition. Let it sit for an hour to let spark plugs dry, then it starts OK later. Next time, turn starter without giving any throttle or very small throttle as engine turns. Myself, when my 2006 Dodge Plymouth minivan (sitting in storage) needs to start, I squirt (half second) starting fluid into air filter, close the air filter housing to trap flammable gas from starting fluid, then turn the engine without pressing on throttle. When the engine starts is when I give it a little throttle to bring up the RPM to 2,000 until it idles on its own without stalling from cold engine.

My 2001 ford escape won't start . I checked all


Can\'t really help you with the no start problem without more information, but would advise you to stop using starting fluid right away. Starting fluid is hard on Diesel engines but they are made for much higher compression so will usually survive intermittent use of starting fluid. Gas engines just plain can\'t handle the much higher than normal compression that starting fluid produces which will destroy valves, piston rings, connecting rods, starters, ring gears on the transmission and head gaskets in short order. If you don\'t want to have to completely rebuild your gas engine don\'t use starting fluid on it ever!

Car will crank but will not start. New battery and new starter installed. Gas line to carb. has gas and all 4 plugs have spark.


If you have spark, compression, and fuel, it should start.
Have you checked the compression or do you know for sure the timing belt is ok ?
Are the spark plugs wet or dry ?

1988 F-350 Won't Start


I assume you mean while it is at WOT, it doesn't want to restart after a shutdown? If so, crack your gas cap 1/4 turn and see if that changes anything...could be vapor lock.

1989 tempo 2.3 4 cyl 5 speed, runs w/ starter fluid


Hi, The carb is gummed up from sitting. The best solution is to take it apart and clean it. The starter fluid indicates that it has clogged jets or stuck floats. The good news is that if it cranks with the starter fluid everything else is probably OK. Good Luck!

89 f-150 turns over just wont start


If the only evidence of trying to start was when u used starter fluid, it's probably a fuel issue. After attempting to start several times, pull a plug and check for gas/wet plug. If there is no evidence of gas reaching the plug, it's probably the fuel pump. Change the fuel filter too.
