Sounds like fuel filter could be stopped up.

SOURCE: Why won't my 1992 Ford Econoline van start

I suspect the fuel pump has stopped working, check the fuel pressure or listen to the noise it makes by taking off the gas cap and listening for a humming noise when the key is turned on, this will stop after a few seconds.

SOURCE: 1966 mustang engine cranks but wont start

Guide to starting a dead horse!
1- Spray a little starter fluid down the carbuerator. If it tries to fire, your timing and ignition is probably OK. This could indicate a carb or fuel pump problem.
2- If it doesn't fire, check out the points, condenser, coil, distributor cap and rotor. Look for condensation inside the cap. Check that the high tension wire from the coil to distributor is in good shape and not touching the engine or any brackets,etc.
3- Verify that your timing is correct. You may have a timing train problem (Worn or broken).
4- The distributor may have come loose and changed positions. Check for proper timing.
5- It may be a compression problem. If it has set long enough for the oil that coats the cylinder walls to drain down, you won't have enough compression to allow firing. Check your compression and if this seems to be the case, remove the spark plugs and squirt a little Marvel Mystery oil, or similar light weight oil into each cylinder. When it starts, it will smoke for a few minutes, but that will go away.
Hope this helps and if not, get back to me.
Have a super day!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have a 1988 Ford F250 with the 460 engine and

The fuel pump relay and the oil pressure switch as well. The oil pressure switch runs power to the fuel pump when you first start it
When the oil pressure reaches operating range the relay takes over
They are both inexpensive so replace both of these parts to be safe and kill two birds with one stone. If one goes out the other will soon enough

Probably 2 year old gas in other tank. switch back to the good tank and run injector cleaner for at least 2 tanks of gas.

My truck sat up for probably 3 or 4 years cranked and run fine yesterday but today it wont crank at all any ideas?


If it won't crank over, it's not a fuel issue, but a starting circuit issue. The gas may be stale, but if tank was full all that time, I don't think that would be a problem.
Pull off the small wire on the starter solenoid, and see if it has power when key is held in crank position. If power there, the starter or solenoid or the battery connections from battery to starter need to be checked or tested. If no power to solenoid when key is in cranking position, the ignition switch may be bad or the neutral safety switch (or the clutch start switch if a manual) or the starter relay needs to be checked.
If you get it cranking, and still no start, look down the throttle body bore and watch your injector spray pattern while the engine is cranking-you should see a fine, cone spray pattern coming from the bottom of the injector. If it just drips and no cone pattern, or no gas coming out, injectors need cleaning (probably from stale gas). Good luck.

04 saab 93 turbo ran out of gas yesterday put 3 gallon in the car turns over but will not start???????


you may have to crank for awhile to purge the entire system of air. If that doesnt work you may want to check the fuel filter and fuel pump. If you ran the vehicle dry then all the junk that was sitting on the bottom of your fuel tank is now in your fuel filter and could have clogged it.

Truck ran out of gas changed fuel pump and fuel filter still didnt start used stater fluid started up but wont crank unless i use starter fluid what could be the promblem


You aren't getting the fuel up from the tank yet. By running out, and also by changing the fuel pump, you have completely emptied the lines. If it doesn't come up within a reasonable time, check again that your new fuel pump is bringing it up. Also check your new filter, because it may be blocked already. By emptying the tank, as soon as you put fuel in you will **** up any rubbish on the bottom of the tank, which would normally float harmlessly in the tank. There's a couple of starting points for you.

My 89 ranger has been sitting for 7 years. i got a new battery for it and it will crank but will not start. i am not sure where to start looking to fix the problem. before it sat it ran like a champ.


Hi,
Is it getting gas and fire?
If so and you don't have fresh gas in the tank, I would suspect some bad gas after sitting for 7 years.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Ford f-150 will crank but not start sounds like it wants to turn over. can hear full pump hum. new starter, new battery,. if i hit the gas pedel a lil while starting truck it will keep running but runs...


I had the same problem but I did two fixes for it (1) when I bought the truck several years ago the duel tank switch was pushed in but i never fixed it and just would switch tanks with the switch pushed into the dash. after awhile it acted like it didn't know what tank to draw from point is i finally replaced the switch and it ran, but still ran rough, (2) on the left side of the motor their is an EGR valve (it was green colored vacum hose) I replaced that vacum hose and now it runs great.
