Remove the spark plug and see if it is wet. If it's dry, you will need to disassemble and clean the carburetor. It is probably all green inside from stale gasoline.

2003 suburban has been siting for 3 years and now won't start. I can hear fuel pump working when key is ON. Battery is charged. What could it be? It cranks over like no fuel or spark getting to it


If it's been sitting for 3 years I would do as follows
1. Drain tank of all gas, give it some fresh gas.
2. Change the Spark Plugs
Attempt to start it. (Keep in mind it may take a few times to get all that old gas out of the lines)
Sitting it the worst thing for a rig. I advise never let it go without starting it ATLEAST once a month
If that doesn't work make sure it is getting fuel to the motor.
If so it could be your Distributor or Coil. Good luck

The 1990 XJ6 has been sitting for the last 2 years and now won't start. The engine turns over fine. The dash gages don't seem to operate. I filled the gas tank with 5 gallons of premium gas. HELP!!!


I wish I could give you an instant fix, but I can't. Do you have spark? If so then its either your fuel pump or the CPS, crank position sensor. If no spark then it could be your coil.

My comaro wont turn over its a 84 and it has been sitting for awile. i just bought it and i cranked when the guy put gas in the carb but it kept dieing when i got it home it just stoped tuning over its...


You probably drenched the plugs to the point that they will not fire-remove them and dry them with a towel, and charge the battery-also, if it has been sitting for a long time, you need to put a decent amount of fresh gas in the tank, what is in there is probably like varnish and will only cause problems if you try to run it with just that for fuel. Change the oil as soon as possible too.

I am pushing gas pedal it wants to start but just doesnt' seem to fire up


It is fairly hard to diagnose from this,but I am assuming that it ran ok the last time you ran it.It may be flooded.hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank the engine.Do not be tempted to lift your foot or pump the pedal.It may have to crank for 20 seconds or more,but it should begin to fire up, first 1 cylinder,then 2 etc,again do not lift your foot until it is firing on all cylinders and revs up cleanly ,then lift but keep it revving a little until all gas is cleared and the plugs arent fouled.
hope this helps or get back with some more information

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!

Hello,I have 1994 ford taurus that turns over but won't start.It has been sitting for a year. Also when I turn on the key a computer box under the hood,mounted just above the radiator buzzes. Please give...


They're shouldnt be any computers near the radiator. Your coputer would be mounted inside the car or on then fender/firwall (away from heat). Make sure the battery is fully charged and that the distributar cap/rotor are not corroded. Also make sure the gas hasn't gone bad (get water in it after sitting). Put some water remover in the tank and try to ad fresh gas if your not able to drain the tank. You could also have bad/clogged injectors after sitting but highly doubtful if it ran fine a year ago. Check the easy things I mentioned first. Spray som starting fluid in the throttle body while holding the throttle wide open when starting (need 2 people for this) see if it tries to fire, if it does try you are not getting gas or not good gas. Out the water remover in first and as much new/fresh gas as possible.
