SOURCE: wont start

throttle body air intake mix is cracked i hope i said this right
right now my mind is waken up

this will be connected to the air filter and assembly take the whole assembly out and try and start vehicle
if vehicle runs you have a crack in throttle body air intake housing this will need to be replaced

cloged fuel filters there is usually 3 one in the engine compartment one on chassis and one in the gas tank called the sending unit this has a filter on it
the gas tank filter only needs to be replaced every 100 thousand miles

timing might be off
sparks not connected all the way or improperly wired
computer took a surge and now wont run replacement of computer is needed
vacume leak at master cylinder
capasitor ignition coil bad <<< spell check
alternators these days are mostly being remanufactured the only true brand new alternators are the ones that come from dealer
batterys are reman. too sometimes they have a dead cell in them
at one point in my life i had to go back 4 different times with alternator and battery for the same problem
this is a win loose win kind of senerio

from the sound of the vehicle only runs off a jump the alternator and or battery is bad

i hope this helped you in discovery of vehicle problems

I have a 1995 Dodge Stratus and I had the same problems last winter it turned out to be the main brain the ECU as they call it It costas about 1200 dollars new but i scored mine from a junk yard for 10 bucks and my car hasnt done it since. They very well may be your problem because i have the same engine in my car its just a smaller body style. look on the net for spaldings used car parts u can look up parts and they usually sell ecus for 75 to a 100 dollars.

SOURCE: 93 volvo 850 glt changed the fuel pump now car

Check your fuel pressure to ensure proper pressure to the block, also did you replace the fuel filter.

On a side note: 3 things a automobile needs to run

AIR-make sure you have a clean air filter and your MAF (mass air flow sensor is plugged in) if you pulled your breather to innspect anything, there is a possibility that it came unplugged or you unpluged it and forgot to hook it back up, a car wont start without it being plugged in if equiped

SPARK-Make sure your car has juice to the plugs, if the plug doesnt fire the car wont run, if you have to pull each plug and ground them to the engine block to see if they arch. If not trace the problem down (if you changed the fuel pump you have some mechanical skill and should be able to troubleshoot a spark issue)

FUEL-Check for proper pressure, dirty fuel filter(s) and if your system has a return line, make sure your hoses didnt get crossed cause this will damage the engine and regulator.

Hope this helps Thanks for using Fixya.com

Why will my 1998 chevrolet cheyenne not start unless primed after sitting overnight


by primed are you supplying a fuel source if so then the car is not getting fuel to burn. this indicates your fuel pump is bad and needs replacing and change the fuel filter also. the reason the pump won`t work sitting overnight is that the pump can`t build up enough pressure possibly because the fuel pressure is not being held, but after the first start up the system can maintain enough pressure to start through out the day. you can have the fuel pressure and volume checked with a gage when the problem occours to verify.

Need to replace a fuel filter on 89 buick century


then the pump is not working, or maybe not primed system yet. Listen carefully, and turn key to ON, not start. Listen for fuel pump to hum in the tank for 5 seconds. Can you hear it?

Wont start unless manually primed


Turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine

You should hear the fuel pump priming for about a few seconds then shutting itself off.
If not hear replace the engine oil pressure switch
The 3rd wire to that switch is the pumps prime switch lead.
When the engines oil pressure is reached the computer will shut that circuit off and turn on the fuel pump relay
If you hear the pump prime the relay maybe at fault instead

Wont start unless primed with starting fluid


Sounds like no gas reaching the motor. Could be fuel filter or fuel pump. I would recommed you disconnect the fuel line and start car to see if fuel is coming up if it is then ur injectors r clogged or no good if nothing comes up u know is pump or filter I would change both.
