I am going to assume ( dangerous) that you have a diesel. If the grid heater is working it is not advisable to use starting fluid because it can combust in the intake manifold. However, if the intake heater was working, you will not have any starting problems above 0F. I would check your grid heater for power and continuity. There could be a fuel delivery issue,but starting fluid usually does not fix that.

Check fuel pressure, had this problem a year ago, bet the fuel pump is gone you should be able to hear the pump come on when you turn the key forward. You should hear it hum if not its dead, costly repair the pump,regulator and filt is all one unit.

SOURCE: car wont start it crank no gas fuel pump works i

if the fuel pump works then you may need to check and see if the fuel filter underneeth the car is not clogged.... you can check also under the hood at the fuel rail to see if you are getting fuel to the injectors... remove the cap and stick a pin in the valve while someone cranks the car over (remember to watch your face, while you are doing this, if it is reaching there it will come out at a high velocity)...

fuel pressure regulator

SOURCE: dodge avenger wont start it has nothingto do with the gas pump or alternarator

The alternator is not in the starting system,but most people think it is

The fuel pump has to be on until it sees a crank signal and supplies
pressure at fuel rail. Do you have that ?

Do you have spark while cranking?

Is the intake ducting in place & maf hooked up?

I assume it turns over,your saying no start correct?

1992 gmc jimmy wont start unless i spray with starting fluid after it starts it will start every time untill the next day then i have to spray again ?


Fuel pump issue.--

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Could be blocked fuel filter or fuel pum, does it keep running once you stop spraying the starter fluid, Try also cleaning out the throttle that could be restricting the mix.

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.
