I have a 95 grand Cherokee. I'm getting fuel, and I'm getting spark. I replaced the crankshaft position sensor, and it still wont start. I spray starting fluid in carb, it starts and dies. Please help


what does getting mean? which engine, 4Liter or 5.2 or what?
spark at all cylinders is getting and timed right?
runs on test fuel so sparks good, that means fuel is bad
or flooding or too little fuel.
code 12 cranking for 5 seconds, means sensors are ok.
why replace parts that make spark when sparks good, it run on test fuel, why worry spark.? and not just fueling.?

now lets do fuel, step one is fuel pressure, not squirt tests.or dribble test. a real tool called,a fuel pressure gauge that works, and nothing else, (unless rail is dry and now we know its not)

if all spark plug tips are dry, are they?
then its not injecting, (the ECU can cut injection for 2 reasons) ask
or there is no real pressure.
so we open the FSM and read page FUELING
49psi is idle pressure, (more cranking with so little vacuum)

the tests are all there,

1984 Chrysler new Yorker 2.6l wont start. Replaced the fuel filter, new spark plugs and wires, new fuel shut off switch, new relay delay fuse, and a new ignition coil, oh yeah and a new starter. Ever hear...


Here's a quote from amy Chilton's manual for 1980-1987.

"Several types of fuel filters are used. One is located in the fuel tank of all the vehicles and is part of the fuel guage assembly. Second is a sealed paper element, in-line unit; mechanical system- located on the engine (above the fuel pump) or electrical system- located in front of the fuel tank. Third is a paper element, in-line fuel filter/vapor separator, housed in a fuel resevoir. Normally, the in-tank filter does not require changing. If it does, the fuel tank must be removed. "
This thing you describe sounds like the typical Chrysler in-line filter of its day. It is nothing more than the same generic in-line plastic see-thru filter you buy for your lawn mower except in the 70's and 80's it was covered in metal and had a Chrysler part number. A lot of guys added an extra filter in those days, it wasn't the best system. I would remove the outlet line and turn the fuel pump on, see if you get fuel. Replace if needed.

Wont start turns over but wont start


it could be many things, but make sure you have fuel and spark. if you have good spark and can not tell if its getting fuel. just spray starting fluid in intake or the throttle body just open throttle plate and give it a couple of squirts of fluid.and if it starts then quits its a fuel problem. if no fuel, check and see if fuel pump is running.check the fuel pump fuse and relay first! to check fuel pump, place hand on bottom of fuel tank, then turn key to on. if it is working you will feel the vibration in tank. you may have to do this a few times. for the pump only runs for about 2-3 seconds to build up pressure in the line. but when its running its on all the time. if pump is ok. go to fuel filter to see if its plugged up.then go from there. hope this helps you ! good-day !

Ran out of gas then filled up now car wont start. I have a 97 pontiac sunfire


The electric fuel pump located in the gas tank can and do burn out, from running out of gas. If it won't run, the fuel pressure will need to be checked to make certain it is the fuel pump. A fuel filter can get plugged and the motor will quit running, but you are sure that you ran out of gas?

My 1993 civic has a intermittent no start.It has spark but I am assuming no fuel. if you let off and try it again all of a sudden it will start may take 1 try or ten? any Ideas would be appreciated. thanks


You probably have a fuel pump or filter problem. For that year if you have over 100 K miles it is a safe bet. You can check when there is a no start by loosening the line from you fuel filter that comes from the tank. The Filter is located in the engine compartment. Check it with the key on, then cranking. If fuel does not come out the fuel pump is bad, if fuel comes out, put it back on and take the other line off the fuel filter that goes to the fuel rail and see if fuel comes out. If none or a dribble the fuel filter is clogged and needs replacing.

Pontiac sunfire chevrolet 1997


First listen for the fuel pump. when you turn the ignition to "on" , just before start, you should hear the fuel pump whining. What you need to do is remove the fuel line going into your fuel rail. Get a small container and turn the pump on and off a few times to get some of that bad gas out. Reconnect fuel line and see if that works. If that doesnt work, Next would be to change the fuel filter which is just behind the rear axle. Other than that you could drain all of the fuel by disconnecting the fuel line to the filter and let it all drain. I dont see a lot of water getting into your port just by leaving the cap off. You might have bought bad gas.

Fuel Pump, car won't start, has good battery and spark, no fuel.


These are relatively easy to change. Raise the rear of the car and let the suspension hang. (usually with jack stands in front of the rear tires) Unbolt the muffler hangers and let the exhaust rest on the rear suspension. remove the heat shield. Disconnect all the little plastic lines. Pull off the filler and vent tubes. Use a jack to support the tank while you unbolt the straps. As you lower it, you should be able to get to the 2 electrical connectors. The rest is self explanatory.
