Make sure its on correctly... some filters only flow one way. check to make sure you didnt inadvertantly disconect the fuel pump or pressure regulator. (you should be able to hear the fuel pump hum for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to on)

SOURCE: Vehicle will not start. Starter turns over, but

Are you getting good spark? Fuel pump? I know you changed your fuel filters, but can you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key just one click - (not all the way to start it)? OR
"There are quite a few things that might be causing your problem but the first thing I would do is have your electrical system checked out. Sometimes a bad alternator can stop charging your battery and cause this kind of problem. Even though the battery has enough voltage to turn things on it might not have enough to start the car. Most auto parts stores will test your electrical system for free. You can also check your battery cable connections and terminals. If they are corroded or loose it can cause this type of problem. There are other things that it could be but that is the most likely."

Make sure you pre fill the filters with clean fuel. Locate the hand primer usually near the fuel lift pump. Unscrew the top till it pops up. Pump repeatedly until it gets hard to pump. You can crack the injector lines while pumping till fuel comes out or have someone crank the engine with the starter while you continue to pump the hand primer. Make sure after it's running the pump is pushed all the way down and tightened back up

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas


Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

My 97 GrandAm wont stay started. It feels like its not getting gas after it fires up. I changed my fuel filter and carb there is gas that comes out when the key is truned on it spilled on the ground


there is often a 2nd inline filter between the tank and engine, also there is a "sock" on the intake line in the tank itself that may be clogged with dirt. try running some fuel cleaner / fuel anti-freeze though first as that will often clear up the issue fairly cheaply.

good luck!

I got a 97 ford thunderbird lx when i try and srart it it turns over but wont start?


sounds lie a bad fuel pump. replace your fuel filter first, if that doesnt work then you may need to drop the fuel tank to get the pump out.

Engine wont stay running. Please help.


change the filter first. IF the pumpwas bad it wouldnt start at all. It could be going bad but the only way to really test it is to pull your gas tank and at that rate you may as well replace it.

you could have a clogged injector causing the lack of fuel as well. you can try injector cleaner, Lucas is my personal preference I use it at every fill-up. 4-6oz per tank of gas depending on your tank size.

97 buick century sputtering and stalling


He has gotten a bad load of fuel. Try a can of dry gas to emulsify the water, but if there is too much for the dry gas to handle, the tank may have to be cleaned. I would also replace the fuel filter also, the gas may also be dirty enough to restrict the filter.
