Turn the key to the "on" position and listen for the fuel pump. You may need to get under and clase to the fuel tank to hear the pump. Fuse good - No noise, bad pump is usually the problem.

Why dose my 2000 jeep cherokee have a rough idle but seems to run good at freeway crusing speed just bought the vehicle last owner thinks it has a low cylinder compression


My wife's 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee has had the same problem what I did was take the air intake tube off and cleaned the carbon build up around the air intake valve. I used carbrator spray and a soft cloth to clean this build up off. Make sure to change your air filter and clean out any debris in the air filter box and other air intake tube. If this doesn't help check the Jeep website for information about some electrical module that when it's bad can causes this problem.

I have a 97 chevy lumina it died while I was driving but all the electrical stuff still works. Now when I try to start it the oil light comes on and the engine won't start


Would start by checking all fuses then check to see if the cars fuel pump is dead. Unplug the air boot from air filter housing, spray a bit of starting fluid or carb cleaner. If car wants to start with spray I'd be looking at the fuel pump. If no change check to see if motor has spark. Pull a wire ground it out on something that's metal and crank, spark should jump to metal (ground).

Sputtering while driving and running funny.


It could be a clogged fuel filter or you could have a old gas coated inside the carbrator. Seafoam will fix that up in a hurry. Don't be supprised if it blows smoke its cleaning all the junk bout of your carbrator. I would start with the simpelist things first. Fuel filter Check your carbrator Throttle adjustment Fuel pump relay Defiantly get a Haynes manual it will trouble shoot you through your problem.

Chevy Tahoe 2000 Z71 won't start!


Just for the record, its a throttle body not a carb.
Sounds like the injectors are not getting power or a ground signal from the computer.
You would check them with a meter or low voltage test light.

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.

Car will turn over fine but won' start, as if it is starved for gas. the car is full and i have also checked the fuse for the fuel pump and it is fine.


but is the fuel pump working.if you remove the air snorkel and spray intake cleaner into the intake while someone tries to start the car and it starts then you have a fuel problem.either the pump,plugged fuel filter,fuel injectors not working,dirt in the fuel system.check the fuel pressure if it doesn`t start when spraying cleaner into the intake.
