Not getting fuel, if it will only run by adding fuel. With it off, look down the carb and open the throttle, you should see a fuel spray inside. It sounds like fuel not getting to the carb. Probably fuel pump!

What would make a not start unless I pour gas into intake

Hi Clyde:
Since you mention "gas rail" I'm assuming fuel injected.
I'd check the fuel pressure in the rail. Should be around 40 PSI.
If pressure is OK then injectors not working. Time to check cps.
You know the spark side is OK since it will run.

1988 econoline van gas runs out of carbarator wont start

Either the float no longer floats or the float valve is stuck open. The easy fix is to replace the carb with a rebuilt one.

99 altima turns over but does not start

Anti theft would kill ignition system. Your fuel pump is not running. If it has about 160k miles, replace the pump. If its 140k or less, check fusable links or computer grounds.

My 1985 grand Marquis won't start I can pour gas

Take the gas filter off. Should be located near the front of the carbeurator, take off the air cleaner and look for it, it takes 2 wrenches to take it off, a little gas may spill out but not much and replace it, however there is a strong possibility that he gas pump is out if the filter is fine. Hope this helps

Has anyone know of this problem

You will need air and fuel to make it run.Remove hose from airbox so there is no restriction possible.Next use a small funnel to pour a small amount of gas in each spark plug hole.put plugs back in.if it runs for a second or wants to then you have a fuel pump,fuel filter,or injector problem.If you dont wanna pour gas in each cylinder i would locate the fuel filter and replace it.should be less then 10 bucks.also get a friend to put there head under the car by the gas tank.when you turn the key on(just for power )not to crank motor.they should hear a quit electric noise.that is the fuel pump in your tank turning on.If pump works and no other restrictions...injectors.

Engine stalled out,would not start, pour gas in carb,cranks,keeps running,until idle falls below 12to1500rpm,than stalls out again and will not crank,repeat gas or starting fluid in carb,cranks runs and...

This truck is fuel injected, the problem sounds like a weak fuelpump, it runs when you pour gas into it until that gas runs out, the first thing is to test the fuel preasure, if the pump is weak it may run with gas poured into it but wont idle, also a common problem is the coolant temp sensor and the ground wires to thermostat housing bolt but i wont bet its the pump inside the fuel tank, if you put a fuel gauge on it there should be at least 55-61 psi if its a few pounds lower it can cause problems, you have everything else and it runs with gas poured so its a fuel problem check the preasure, theres a valve up top on the fuel line to connect a fuel gauge to it, start there hope this is helpful.

On the pass. side fender is you should find the fuel pump relay. Power goes through it to the inertia (crash) switch on the upper part of the pass. side floor board. From there, the power goes to the fuel pump. At the rear near the fuel pump is the fuel pump ground. It's attached to the inner part of the frame as is sometimes hard to see. Check it as well. I've had truck that drove me crazy and would find a bad ground there. I cleaned up the ground and everything was fine again.
