SOURCE: Won't start without priming

Sounds like the inlet valve isn't seating properly and allowing the carb bowl to drain out overnight. Make sure the needle valve is not binding and that the float tang is bent properly to set correct float level. Also, make sure carb to manifold nuts are securely tightened.

Sounds like no gas reaching the motor. Could be fuel filter or fuel pump. I would recommed you disconnect the fuel line and start car to see if fuel is coming up if it is then ur injectors r clogged or no good if nothing comes up u know is pump or filter I would change both.

SOURCE: 2001 ranger wont start after sitting

check the fuel pump and see is working properly, if the pump is good than the problems will be the crank sensor is faulty. what crank sensor does it sense the turning of the flywheel and it send a single to ecu, and ecu send a flow of power to turn on the fuel pump as long it sense the flywheel turning.

The pressure regulator is bad,it is allowing the fuel to pass threw to the cylinders,replace the regulator,and a new set of goos spark plugs.This is the fuel pressure regulator.

1964 falcon ranchero 260 v8 have to prime carb. after idle a few days to start. allso when driving and come to a stop dies


Disconnect the fuel line from the carb. Put the fuel line in a container and crank the engine for 4 or 5 seconds. You should see good squirts of fuel. Better yet put a fuel pressure gauge in line just before the carb. You should have 4-7 psi. It might be quick to get a gas jug a start a syphon to the carb. Dont forget to catch the fuel from the disconnected fuel line. If it starts right up its probably the fuel pump. If not the carb may need a good cleaning and rebuild. Check float bowl level. Check idle air screw adjustment.

Why will my 1998 chevrolet cheyenne not start unless primed after sitting overnight


by primed are you supplying a fuel source if so then the car is not getting fuel to burn. this indicates your fuel pump is bad and needs replacing and change the fuel filter also. the reason the pump won`t work sitting overnight is that the pump can`t build up enough pressure possibly because the fuel pressure is not being held, but after the first start up the system can maintain enough pressure to start through out the day. you can have the fuel pressure and volume checked with a gage when the problem occours to verify.

My suburban has to be primed to start


There is a separate circuit and relay that primes the fuel system when you start the vehicle. If you sit in a silent location and turn the key to the ON position (without cranking), you should hear the fuel pump run for about 5-6 seconds. This is to bring the fuel pressure up in order to let the vehicle start. Then the normal pump circuit takes over. Sounds like your priming circuit is not working. I would try the relay first.

hi there
without physically looking at this it is hard to say but best thing i can suggest is that the fuel relay is bad this is a fuse located usually under the hood and will be marked on diagram
hope this helps have a great day

When my 1988 toyota camry sits for a day or two without driving, the first initial start does not fire-up as I turn the key. I have to hold the key in the start position and the car will eventually start


All cars require a little priming. Try this, turn the key on, let it sit for about 30 seconds then try and start your car. When you first turn the key, the fuel pump will begin pushing fuel. My Mustang does the same thing when its been cold. Of course, in Tucson it does not get cold very often.
