Take the line off at the carburetor and crank the engine over till fuel comes out. When it does, put line back on. If it still will not start, the needle valve where the line goes into the carb may not be opening.

I have a 1992 ford f150 pickup 2wheel drive it turns over and tries to start but wont it has new ignition cole new fuel pump new plugs and wires new distrubutor and cap all from napa and it still wont...


Is fuel getting tho the cylinders? Remove the fuel line at the intake manifold, put the hose in a container, try starting see how much and how fast is the fuel coming out. If normal, fuel is not the issue. If not check the fuel filter and lines. Is it getting enough air to start? Remove the air intake hose, see if it starts, if it does the air filter is most likely severely clogged.

Are you sure you have the plug wires on right, and the point gap is right ? I am assuming you have checked the carb and ruled out a fuel problem.

Van will start but not rev up


Have you changed fuel filter recently? if so start there or if on > 20,000 replace. Then follow fuel line from filter to pump. Where it goes into the pump I think there is a lint filter in there, remove the filter & clean with compressed air.

Fuelfilter try to change fuelfilter and wont come


ou need a special tool to remove the fuel lines on your vehicle. Fortunately Ford had the wisdom to provide it to you. Here's how to do it.

Removal:
Warning: because of the combustion characteristics of gasoline, always use extreme care when removing and installing any fuel system component or personal injury or damage to the vehicle may occur.

  1. Perform the fuel pressure release procedure.
  2. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  3. Remove push connect fittings at both ends of the fuel filter. NOTE: To remove 5/16" push-connect fittings, use Fuel Line Removal Tool T90T-9550-B or tool supplied on vehicle. Tool is located 254 mm (10 in.) behind fuel filter. Place in glove compartment after use.
  4. Install new retainer clips in each connect fitting.
  5. Remove fuel filter by pulling fuel filter toward center line of vehicle and free from fuel filter bracket. NOTE: The flow arrow direction should be positioned forward and downward to make sure of proper fuel flow through replacement fuel filter.

Installation:

  1. Install fuel filter in fuel filter bracket, ensuring proper direction of flow.
  2. Install push connect fittings at both ends of fuel filter.
  3. Lower vehicle.
  4. Start engine and inspect for leaks.

RAN OUT OF GAS, I THINK..PUT GAS IN STILL WONT START... FUEL PUMP MAYBE ?


When older vehicles are driven to the point of running out of fuel, the deposits in the tank are sucked into the line and clog the filter and the line. On a 13 year old vehicle, I'd say you probably had this happen. You may be able to clear the debris by removing the gas cap and putting a small amount of compressed air backwards through the system by removing the line that feeds your fuel rail. put the air into the line slowly and have someone listen near the tank. After a while the debris will be cleared of your lines and backflushed through the filter. Gas should flow freely after that. Change your fuel filter asap though after it's running again. Or yes, it could be the pump.
