It's not really a fix for any problems your car has. All it does is make it a little more likely that your car will start if the problem is something that a burst of ether can overcome.

1990 4Runner v6/aut, 4x4. Turns over but won't start. Seems like it's not getting fuel


Spray some either into the intake while someone is cranking the engine. If it starts temporary and then quits, it is definitely a fuel problem. Check your fuel pump.

Battery died and replaced but now hard shifting, high idle and will suddenly quit running. Could this be the ECM?


Sounds like the air intake manifold gasket getting bad. Easy way to test this is when it is idling high, take a can of brake cleaner and spray it on the air intake, all around the gasket. If the gasket is bad, the car will change it's idle as the cleaner is sprayed on it. This happened to both of my 02 saturns. The air intake manifold gasket is located on the back side on the top of the motor. Very easy to get at and a very easy test. To locate it , look for the throttle cable on the throttle body. Look to the left of that and you will see the air intake. It's an aluminum manifold held on by 8 ten mm nuts. Right behind the fuel injectors. You can also use ether or quick start, and it wont take much. If the idle changes, you intake gasket is bad. Let me know how you make out

temporary fixes cause problems or they would be permanent fixes. The car got to over heat stage and the coolant sensor turned the engine light on to let you know that something was wrong. Replace the radiator before you do serious engine damage.

I think my egr valve on my 2005 2ltr Jaguar Xtype needs cleaning, how can I do this. I had it done about four years ago when the car lost power and back smoke was coming from exhaust. the car has started...


what you need is carb cleaner or throttle body cleaner then unbolt it from your engine, unplug everything hooked up.to it then place a shop towel over the opening left on your engine for nothing falls in then take your EGR valve and place it on newspapers, or towels and spray the heck out of it, let it sit after spraying it, and repeat after you got it cleaned up, let it air out for a bit, and bolt and hook it back up, this is just a temporary fix it sounds like you are running rich if you have a scan tool, check your fuel trims they just might be off a little bit, if it took.about 4 years to.start smoking again, but if you are going to be keeping it for some time, then I would check the fuel trims or have them checked.and fix, it.could be.something as easy as a vacuum leak

Fuel pump sonds like it works but truck will not start,changed fuel filter still nothing


Have you bled the fuel system after you replaced the filter? if there is air in the injectors it will not start at all.

If you can here the pump thats a good sign, as they are expensive. Also worth mentioning have you heard of a spray product called easy start?

If so then take the air intake pipe off and get someone to sit in the car and try and start it while you spray the easy start into the air intake. If its going to start then easy start will start it. dont keep using it but at least you will know once it's running.

Finally it could be the glow plugs there is a way of checking them please let me know, and I will tell you how to do it.

2001 Lincoln Navigator starts and dies immediately. It was running fine and all of a sudden now you start it and it just dies instantly. It is not a battery problem. I think it might be something...


have the fuel pump checked , its sounds like a bad pump. you can check press at fuel rail with a gauge or find a shop with a scope they can check the pattern, and they can check volume as well. you can have presss but no volume. and if you are checking your self and want the easy way spray some starting fluid down the throttle body and see if it stays running while being sprayed remember keep the mass air hooked up , so spray and hook intake plastic tube back up.

Possible intake air leak


Yep....one easy way is to have the van sitting there at idle and take a can of starting fluid spray....spray around the intake area. Use the little straw. Spray a little at a time. The motor will rev up when you have a area that sucks that spray in.
