Most likely a clogged fuel filter, especially if you live in a humid climate.

    It could also be a bad fuel pump. Disconnect the fuel filter, stick both tubes into a jar (a friend helps with this), then try to start the car. If the fuel pump is working, it should spit gas into the jar.

How to tell if 1995 ra1 honda odyssey fuel pump working or not??


It sounds like there might be an air lock between the fuel pump and the carburetor. Disconnect the fuel line from the fuel pump at the carburetor. Get a coffee can or another container turn the fuel pump on or try and start the car. the fuel pump will pump fuel through the fuel line to fill it with fuel and push the air out of the line. When you get a steady stream of fuel , reconnect the fuel line to the carburetor, the car should start.

How to cut back gas feed to carburetor


Hi,
If you are receiving to much fuel through the carburetor then it is the float levels in the carburetor that need resetting.
If its to much delivery to the carb. then you need to check if there is a fuel pressure regulator inline with the fuel line from the fuel tank.
Have this reset and this should solve your problem.

I HAVE A 1988 MUSTANG 5.0 THAT HAS BEEN SITTING FOR ABOUT 3 YEARS. I HAVE PUT NEW PLUGS AND WIRES ,NEW GAS WILL TURN OVER BUT WONT START


Check the fuel pressure at the Carburetor or fuel rail, depending on which you have. Most likely the gas that was in the rail or carburetor has dried out and gummed up the injectors or needle valve holes. To verify, if you have a carburetor you can pour a small amount of gas in the throttle body of the carburetor and try to start it. If it starts that confirms the problem and you will need to clean the carburetor with a rebuild.

Had new battery, carburetor, and fuel pump installed in my dodge aries 84, and still it wont start, why?


Have you checked that you have spark at the sparkplugs? Have you checked if the fuel is indeed reaching the carburetor? Have you checked if the choke is activated when you try to start it? If no find out why and fix it. Does the engine starts when you pour a small amount of lighter fluid directly in the carburetor? If yes then the carburetor is badly adjusted - fix that.

1987 Cutlass Supreme not turning on. Think fuel system?


Fuel Filter REPLACEMENT Gasoline Engines The fuel filter is located behind the fuel inlet connection on the carburetor. On 1976–87 vehicles fuel filters incorporate a check valve and are not interchangeable with earlier years. Replace the fuel filter every 15,000 miles (24,135 km), or sooner if engine flooding is a problem. Fig. 1: Hold the large fuel inlet nut on the carburetor while using a flare wrench to loosen the line connection 86681247.jpg
  1. Using an open–end wrench (preferably a line or flare nut wrench), loosen the fuel line connection from the larger fuel filter nut. You will have to hold the other nut with a wrench to keep it from turning. Most of the time these units are quite difficult to remove. It is a good idea to apply a lot of penetrating oil to the threads and then tap the nut lightly.
  2. Once you have the fuel line disconnected from the carburetor, remove the larger nut from the carburetor with a box–end wrench or socket.
  3. Remove the filter element and spring from the carburetor.
  4. Check the element for blockage by blowing through the fuel inlet end. If the element is good, air should pass through easily.
  5. Once you have checked and/or replaced the filter, reinstall the carburetor nut and the fuel line. Be careful not to strip the threads. Fig. 2: Install the new spring and filter in the order they were removed 86681248.jpg

My 1984 toyota corolla ran out of gas now it wont idle


Quick explanation of your fuel system:

An automotive fuel system consists of everything between the fuel tank and the carburetor or fuel injection unit. This includes the tank itself, all the lines, one or more fuel filters, a fuel pump (mechanical, electric, or both), and the carburetor or fuel injection unit.
With the exception of the carburetor or fuel injection unit, the fuel system is quite simple in operation. Fuel is drawn or pumped from the tank through the fuel line by the fuel pump, which forces it through the fuel filter, and from there to the carburetor/injection unit where it is distributed to the cylinders.

So with that info...try first to clean your spark plugs.
Next, replace your fuel filter.
After that, depending on a carburetor/fuel injection, try an additive that cleans the injectors. For the carburetor, try a half of can of what is called "Seafoam". It comes in a metal can available everywhere, including Walmart. It is worth the $6-8 and also will "dry" out your fuel from water. Very good product.

After that, get back to us and let us know how your Toyota is running.
