Check the fuses and relay to the fuel pump, the relay is in the firewall just left to the brake booster, not sure which one of two relays there but you can switch them with one another. The other thing to is check if there is fuel pressure from the shredder valve which is a valve along the fuel line before it enters the fuel pressure regulator. Just follow the fuel line from the throttle body to the back of the engine and you'll run in to the shredder valve. It looks like a air valve from a tire. Push the valve like your letting air out but gas will come out it self so use caution, if you can rent a fuel pressure gauge. That is where you hook it up to and you need 60PSI to activate the injectors. If fuel pump is working then try replacing the fuel filter first since that's cheap and easy to do. The filter is in the inside frame rail under the drive and you can change it with simple tools. Good luck and keep me posted. be goad to help

Why wont my '74 f350 stay running?


Check your timing. Your timing chain may have "jumped". They usually do that as you are shutting the vehicle off. Turn the engine over until the timing mark on the crank is at 0 on the pointer. Pull the distributor cap and see where the rotor is pointed.It should be on #1. If it is a long way off, like on the other side then rotate the engine 1 complete turn and check then.

Van running like its missing


the problem is not in the plugs , wires , cap , rotor but in dirty injectors or injector controls and wires
use a quality injector cleaner for a few tanks of fuel
ECM controlled cars do not a tune up as the computer does that 60 times a minute so all you need to do is to run the fault codes and fix the faulty sensors
fault codes are being recorded all the time and only the serious engine or transmission faults put the engine light on

Won't start fuel pump replaced new tank and relay have fuel after fuel filter runs if I put fuel down throttle body. this is on a4,3.


Nephew had similar problem on different vehicle - had spark to plugs, limited gas, everthing else checked. I did one thing first - check for two fuel filters - one in the tank was only screens and one in the line itself. Found a little in line filter just outside of engine compartment under car next to frame that looked like it had never been changed - partially clogged - replaced it.Almost ran but would not keep running. I had rotor and cap pulled - found that the screw holding rotor in place was loose. The rotor edge next to plug wire leads was chopped up and the cap's plug wire leads were heavily oxidized. Replaced them and got it running but a little rough. Pulled the spark plugs and found gaps from 25 - 100 ---replaced the plugs with correct gapping and it ran really well.

Last week, when I started my '89 Dodge Dakota, I saw that the "check engine" light was on. I put the transmission shift in "drive" and notice that the engine ran "rough" and I drove away. When I stopped at...


unless there are some other underlying issues, they may be there still unless you clear the codes and turn off the check engine light..or else in the distributor itself you will see two long metal pieces at the top..they should be screwed to the distributor housing. there should be two individual pieces..those are your coils..one is your "run pickup coil" and the other is your "start pick up coil" if your run pick up coil is bad then a tune up won't accomplish much..you will need to take that to your mechanic to have it diagnosed properly..if faulty, replace. if not, then perhaps its a fuel issue or bad alternator.
