When you turn the key to the on position do you here a slight buzzing sound. if not check the fuel pump fuse then check the fuel pump relay switch if both are good then replace the fuel pump.

1978 gmc sierra sbc 350.. problems starting its been sitting for a while. I replaced the mechanical fuel pump but still doesn't run. I can pour gas in the quadrajet carburator and it will turn over and run...

If it runs when you pour fuel in the carburetor, then the problem is that the engine is not receiving fuel. (by the way, be careful, the carburetor may back fire and cause a fire). Disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor and place the end of the line in a bucket, then turn the truck over to see if fuel is flowing. If it is a mechanical fuel pump it should pump fuel into the bucket when the battery turns over the engine. If you had a lot of debris pop out of the carburetor, it should be taken off and cleaned. You may have had a bird or something else try and build a nest in it.

I just replace the fuel pump,filter and carburator on my 1983 plymouth will turn over and start but wont say started what could be the problem

Possible float is sticking in carb. Tap side of float bowl with screwdriver and see if that helps. If not, I suggest checking the float level and make sure it is adjusted at the right height.

Cant start the 1981 dotson truck

You should have points and condensor in the distributor,take one sparkplug wire from one one the sparkplug and leave a 1/4 air gap.Have some one crank it you should have spark,If you dont you will need a point and condensor,or if you want just the condensor,now if you replace the point and condensor you retime the engine.If you have spark and it wont start,now go to the carburator the sight glass should be full of fuel.if its not test the fuel pump if its good the carburator float is preventing fuel from entering

My 1991 olds mobile cutlass calais wont start,after I added fuel injector cleaner because,the car was having hesistating problems below 25 miles an hour and it might of been a spark plug problem or fuel...

When you chaged the air filter & sprayed Gumout carb cleaner, you got rid of a little gunk in the
air intake, but when you added the fuel injector cleaner (its the same stuff as carburator cleaner) to the fuel tank, you "cleaned out" ALL the ****/gunk/buildup/dirt in the fuel system which has built up since 1991 and sent it straight to the fuel filter, which is now clogged. The reason that the car tries to start, but fails, is that it'll successfully burn up any fuel that gets past the clogged fuel filter, but the engine consumes that small amount of gasoline quickly, then dies.
Your solution: change the fuel filter.
The fuel filter is located:
Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line
