There is a lot of types of starting fluid. Some is kind of safe....kind of!! Most will destroy your engine!! If you are using starting fluid on a Saturn, you really need to stop. Your fuel pressure could be incorrect. The fuel pump relay could be bad, or a fuse. Your fuel pump may be going out. Listen to your fuel pump when you turn the key to the "run" position before turning the starter over. You shoulh hear a 2 second buzz from the fuel pump. If you don't hear this , you have a fuel pump issue.

SOURCE: 2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start

If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

SOURCE: know 2001Saturn ran out of has, was getting fuel,but it started with starter spray but won't stay running,battery is almost fully dead ,could that be why I am now not getting any fuel

no as long as its running the alternator will suply electric with it running out of fuel the pump and filter would have pulled all the muck from inside the tank put plenty of fuel in maybe quarter of a tanks charge battery after a few days it should be ok but if not get fuel filter changed hope this helps ivan

SOURCE: intermittently when I try to start the car, it

sounds like your engine is not getting any fuel. check your fuel filter to see if it needs to be changed. Fuel lines are under pressure. Be careful because on some vehicles you need to turn the fuel pumb breaker off and crank the engine over for about 10 seconds to depressurize your fuel line before removing the fuel filter. (check motor manuel to see where your breaker is located. One of my cars has the breaker in the trunk of the car, while my other vehicle has it in the passenger side panel). A more serious problem is that it could be your fuel pump. The fuel pump is usually located in the gas tank. Regardless, of where the problem is you will need to replace you fuel filter anyway.

Nissan almera 2002 was running fine stood over night now wont start


Does it crank over If no, then try jumping it from another car.
If yes it cranks but doesn't fire up, try spraying a small squirt of starting fluid into the air intake. If it fires up then dies it is a fuel problem. Very likely low on fuel or fuel pump circuit.
If it cranks but doesn't start with starting fluid there is a problem in the ignition-spark system.

Car won't start 2003 Dodge Stratus sxt coupe cranks but won't start what could b the problem? I tried spraying starting fluid in the air system but it still won't start!


i would check and see if spark pluges are firing. you can take one out and plug into spark plug wire then let the bottom of the plug sit on engine and get someone to try to start while you look at the plug to see if there is any fire. if you have no fire or fuel it would be the crankshaft sencer. it could be the timing belt but the motor would sound different turning over then it used to.

2000 Dodge neon starts and runs fine. But sometimes does want to start Engine cranks, but won't start


How many miles on the car? Have you checked the fuel pressure when it doesn't want to start? Do that first and then move on from there. To quickly test fuel pressure with no special equip get a can of starting fluid from the auto parts store, when it fails to start spray the fluid into the air intake of the engine well it is cranking, if it fires up then the fuel pump is likely not running on for some reason. This can be electrical in nature or just a failed electric fuel pump

starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

Have you checked the fuel regulator and the pressure from the fuel pump to ensure it is not weak. In addition, you might want to check and see if fuel is going into the cyl. the catalytic converter may be plugged based on the year of the car. To check this you could pull the o2 sensor out of the exhaust and see if it keeps running, realize it won't run at 100%. If it is the back pressure will not allow fuel to come into the cyl.
