Your injector or fuel pump may be going out, next time when you check the issue, check your distubutor again and making sure you getting sparks, if you do have sparks than it has to be your fuel problems.

fuel pump bad or fuel pump relay bad. Likely fuel pump.

Spray some starting fluid in air intake and see if it starts. If yes, replace fuel pump in fuel tank. drop tank for access. About a $250 repair at shop. call around.

Toy turns over but wont run change fuel filter n fuel pump still


The fuel pump should run for a second or two when you first turn the key on, but then shuts down to prevent the engine from flooding if the computer does not get a signal from the crank or cam sensors which the computer uses to trigger the ignition system. So no spark no fuel. Check to see if you have a spark in the ignition system.

Wont start after being turned off for at least 30 minutes


Im not sure what you mean when you say wont start after being turn off for 30min, do you mean the starter wont turn the motor over after 30min or the engine turn over but it wont fire/run? if it start every time after its cool down. check the coil, the original coil tend to fail with heat over time. if its original coil for being 1990 I would go ahead and place it. distributor Assembly unit will also need replacing if its original and having high miles. a sign of the coil going bad when it get hot it quit working until its cool off. fuel pump can be another causing the problem. hope that help some

i can tell you its not the fuel pump.if you smell fuel then the pump is working right,you may have a weak crankshaft sensor though which would keep it from starting and running. but its definately not the fuel pump maybe you have water in your gas
