Hi Baltazar:
Have you tried to start it?
It wouldn't hurt to give it a SMALL prime. Remove the air filter and put a thimble or 2 (NO MORE) into the carb ant then try to start it. Sometimes they just need a bit of encouragement.
After sitting for 2 years the gas in the carb, fuel fump, and tank may have gelled, so there is a possibility that you will have some cleaning and flushing to do.
Work patiently, and stay safe.

Hey there boatright33,

A few things things immediately come to mind.

There may be a problem with the engine controller. You could check the ODBII onboard diagnostics. Auto part stores will usually do this for you at no cost.

When you pulled the ones that were/went bad, how did the filters look? Could there be particulate matter still in the tank causing them to fail.

I always put this one off until last. Check the injectors. Are they gummed up?

Let me know what you find out

What you need to do is check you fuel pressure. Go to a local auto parts store and buy a fuel injection pressure tester. The pressure fitting is on the top of the motor its a 3/8 ish sized metal line and has a screw on fitting like a tire valve does. This line comes up from the back of the motor to the right of the distributor and goes down into the intake. Make sure to have a rag handy to catch the fuel seepage. After you connect the pressure tester turn the key on and off three times and read the gage you should have atleast 58 pounds of pressure. If you have 56 pounds it won't run because the fuel injectors are a poppit valve style and need atleast 58 pounds of pressure to operate.

will be rubbish in the carb blocking either the primary or more likely idle jet.
Remove carb (2 x 13mm nuts, back one tricky) Undo 5 screws on top of carb and seperate after taking off throttle return spring.
carefully remove gasket (can be reused) Undo injection jet (Centre) idle screw and volume control screw (side of car) Blow through all hloes (body and removed jets) with carb cleaner. Also check that fuel supply valve in top of carb is not blocked. Refit all jets. For idle and volume control (idle the big one) screw in fully and then undo for 2 and a half turns (rough setting). Fill carb 2/3rds with new fuel. Refit top and put carb back. Should start and run. Adjust Idle so tickover at 1000, the turn volume screw for max rpm. Then turn down Idle to 850.......sorted.

SOURCE: won't start. Battery has full charge and fuses good

Check starter relay fuse and fuel pump fuse inside under hood fuse box. Take out those 2 fuses (they are the same size) and bend the 4 tabs outward a little bit, then re-insert. This will help the fuse prongs make contact inside fuse box.

My 99 Windstar ran out of gas. Changed fuses 5&207; checked fuel injector. Added 2 gallons gas, turned key to "on" 3x's. STILL NOT STARTING!!

although rare it is possible to destroy the fuel pump by running tank to m/t , a quick check to see if this is the case is to sit in car with door open , hold your foot on door jam switch (stops chime) and turn key to run (not start) once or twice in a row , if your pump is still working , you will hear fuel injectors prime , (elect motor runs for three seconds ) you may have to listen carefully and repeat test several times to hear it (quiet place helps !!) if you don't hear the pump prime !! and you ck/replaced the fuel pump fuse already , it will need replaced (its inside fuel tank !!)

Vehicle motor turns but not fuel supply

You don't say if you have checked that the Fuel Pump is working.

1. You need to check that the fuel pump is operating and getting power.. Have someone turn on the ignition (but not start the engine) If you listen near the FP location you should hear the fuel pump run for 3 seconds and stop. If in doubt do this a couple of times until you can hear the pump run and stop.

2. If you cannot hear the pump running check the fuel system related fuses.

3. If the fuses are good check that the relay for the fuel pump you replaced is functioning. Have someone turn the ignition on and off a few times and listen for the click from the relay or put your finger on it.

4. As a final check have a simple fuel pressure test done on the fuel system if not done already. . If everything is running normally and you are getting good fuel pressure then the starting problem will be somewhere else.

1999 chrysler 3.5 lhs fuel not going to injectors

Then your fuel pump is not working, or your fuel filter is blocked. You will probably have to check your fuel pump circuit if you have no fuel pressure in the fuel rail, where the injectors sit. There is a fuse for the pump, usually in the under hood fuse/relay block. That is probably also where the fuel pump relay is located. You should hear or feel this relay click when the ignition key is cycled from off to on. Also, when the key is turned to on, you should hear the fuel pump in the gas tank turn on for about 2 seconds. This will put the pressure in the gas in the fuel rail, for starting the engine. If you don't hear the pump turn on for that 2 second period, it is probably a bad fuel pump. But know the fuse is good first.

Vw golf turns over but wont start but willl with starter fluid and when it starts runs for a second but stops

Check fuel pump relay by replacing it with another one from the Power distribution assembly. Make sure that you use one with the same number on it. This sounds so petty, but is there gas in the car? You'd be amazed how easy that some of these are to fix. Next in line is the fuel pump itself. Standing outside the car with an assistant in the driver seat, have them just turn the key to the run position. Did you hear a small motor run for just a second. Good. That's the pump pressurizing the lines and injectors. Don't hear it? You did check that fuel pump fuse already, right? Then, there's the possibility that the pump has failed.

My dodge durango(2003) shut off on me when i was driving yesterday. Engine cranks but doesn't start. Relays and fuses are all good. any ideas?

It sounds like the fuel pump has failed, I'd start by checking the fuel pressure. Turn everything off so you hear whether on not the fuel pump runs when you turn the key to "on". The pump should run for 3-5 seconds and the stop and it won't start running again, until you turn the key to "start".

I have a 1991 ford rockwood camper it has been sitting for 2 yrs,It ran great when I parked it but now it won't start. I got it to start when putting gas down the throtle body but it won't stay...

you can disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter, and place a hose from the fuel line in to a small container and have some one turn the key on to see if there is fuel coming out of the line .also check the fuel filter .that it is not blocked .if no fuel comes out replace the fuel pump check all fuses at the fuse box .if there is a fuse for it .it would be marked fuel

Fuel pump fuse in wiring location

the fuel pump fuse is in one of the fuse boxes. there are 2 one in the car and the other under the hood.
when the key is turned to ignition,you should hear the pump turn on in the tank for a couple seconds.
with the key in the ignition setting,have someone bang on the fuel tank with a 2 by 4 . if the pump is bad,it may start up and run.
