Make and Model, year of vehicle?
I'm assuming the vehicle won't run unless you pour gas into the intake. If the vehicle will start and run while manually feeding gas to the engine, you can rule out spark and timing issues. Usual suspects in fuel system are dead fuel pump (electrical or mechanical?) clogged delivery system ( fuel line, filter, injector or jet) or intake leak (bad gasket or seal, vacuum leak, stuck valve). fuel in filter and start pouring gas in carb, but  - 25310438-za4bqvjhdrn3arnyccyp5xaz-5-0.jpg

1968 mustang 302 standard 2 bbl carb will turn over and sound like it wants to stay running but will not.


Remove the air cleaner and carefully pour small amounts of gas down the carburetor. Have a fire extinguisher near by. If the motor keeps running then the engine is not getting fuel. Check the fuel pump & gas filter.

New filter new fuel pump won't stay running


Well your engine has a carb, so it could be dirt in the carb, or a vac leak, or several other possible causes.
Does the choke close when the engine is first started ? Have you checked the fuel line to see if the pump is providing gas ?

Car was running good,parked for a year now it won't start unless you pour gas in carb


It is most Likely your fuel pump, or possibly a clogged fuel filter. I had the same problem on my grand am, put in a new pump and that solved it.

My three wheeler doesn't stay running when it starts. What could be the problem besides the fuel line . just added a fuel filter on it but she still won't start or stay running at times. Co


The damage is already done before you put the fuel filter in. (dirt in Carb)
Remove your carb and dissesemble it and clean everything out and then put back on the machine with FRESH gas and you will be fine...run like a top !

If the car starts when you pour gas into the carb. The fuel pump is defective. Or the fuel filter is stopped up.

Is fuel getting into the carb?  If it is, is the float chamber full?  Is the float stuck?
