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.

Try replacing the fuel pump relay. if that doesnt do it the fuel pump is bad.

2002 Jeep Liberty ran car last night then went next day no start and the fuel gauge doesn't move so I put gas in it but still doesn't move nor start


Spray starting fluid into the engine air intake, if it fires up and dies you have a defective fuel pump most likely.

96 ciera 2.2 ran fine. parkedat night next morn wont start.its getting fuel and fire but sounds like its not even trying to start


Check for spark.. pull one spark plug out set it on bare metal(away from cyl hole fuel could light from spark) turn vehicle over and look for spark should be a nice lightning bolt looking spark... blue spark is weak spark.. and see if it's getting spark...,, if not,,."try new plugs.,wires,distributor cap&rotor " also first.spray a little starting fluid down the injection system turn it over and see if it fires.if it does then it's a fuel issue prob not electrical... try that.hope it helps

1998 expedition wont start


first of all its not good to spray starting fluid into the intake,its got a plastic "LOWER"intake and it can blow apart and **** too much air through it.Next reset the computer and it can be done by un-hooking the battery cable for a few minutes and if this works and runs for a while and does this again,then reset the computer again.If it does it again then maybe replace the computer..Then also check the fuel pump,it may sound like its working but it could have gotten hot and the plastic gear on the end may not be pushing fuel through when it runs for a while.

I have a 97 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 that wont start


COULD BE A BAD FUEL PUMP EVEN THOUGH ITS NEW, TRY THE FUSES IN THE MAIN FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD, ALSO TRY DISCONNECTING THE BATTERY CABLES FOR ABOUT 5 MINS, LASTLY IT MAY BE THE ECM [computer on fire wall]
HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEWHAT
