That su(ks. First get fuel back. power up the pump first, then fix or replace. Then fix the leak. Year make and model helps.

SOURCE: lower intake manifold gasket leaking 02 Olds Silhouette

This is basicly a very time consuming job rather than a physically hard one to complete. In order to replace the gasket you must remove the intake plenum,throttle body, and misc. vacuum hoses. The wiring harness connections must also be disconnected. Finally the intake manifold is exposed. The bolts holding the manifold to the block are removed exposing the leaking gasket. After removing the push rods and placing them in the correct order to be replaced the gasket and sealants can be removed. Finally replace everything in reverse order. Be sure to consult a GM manual for correct bolt torch specs. The correct specs for the manifold bolts usually come with the gasket. Make sure to change your oil a few times after this job in case any coolant entered the block. Also,change the thermostat and the oil seal on the distributor half shaft cap while you have everything off. Good Luck

SOURCE: Leaking fuel rail

Recheck the o-ring on that injector, the one up at the fuel rail to make sure it didn't get damaged.
Try and seat the injector into the fuel rail first, then push it gently into the manifold, ( that is if you haven't already did that).

Nobody has messed around with the ignition timing in any way?



If it has stood for a long time(i.e years..) the fuel may have degraded to the point that it\'s useless.



The carbs will smell of fuel, but are you sure that fuel is being pumped to them in sufficient quantity? Try disconnecting a fuel line, crank the engine a few revolutions to see if fuel is pumped out.



Try gravity feeding the carbs. Use a can of fuel connected to the carbs, held above the engine. Get somebody to crank the engine and see if it fires up. If the engine fires up, suspect the fuel pump.. or fuel lines.



An air leak can also cause non-starting. The usual cause is the inlet manifold gasket. Any air leaking through the gasket can cause your non-starting problem. Go back and check that no dirt has been picked up by the gasket before you fitted it/it hasn\'t been ripped. Check that the inlet manifold has been correctly tightened.



It doesn\'t sound as though you have much of a problem .. more of a \'niggle\'.

My chevy s10 will startright up but once it does it wont idle consistantly. when you rev it up it will kinda miss. it acts as though it is being starved of fuel. it has a new fuel filter, plugs,wires,...


if you have a V6 then you might suspect a leaking intake manifold gasket, a common problem. Has your coolant level been dropping lately? If so then the coolant may be entering some of the cylinders and then shorting accross the sparkplugs. Youtube has lots of videos on how to change the intake manifold gaskets.

On the other hand you may have clogged injectors or a leaking fuel pressure regulator

Exhast leak 1990 nissan maxima just need gasket diagram


you most likely have broken studs in your cylinder heads. those studs hold the manifold to the head, buut after a while they will break and you have to extract them from the head. not something for novice to be doin, since you may have to be doing some drilling and tapping and if you drill in the wrong manner/way, you can drill into the water jacket, which will create a coolant leak, which can only be fixed by head replacement. i have doone dozens of those manifolds and drilled 100ts of studs.

1993 Geo Prizm is turning into a money pit. now it has an exhaust leak. It also sputters through all gears at the start. Could this be due to thw exhast leak or a bad fuel pump???


I don't think an exhaust leak would cause the sputtering in all gears. I've run my Geo in the past with a cracked exhaust manifold for months, and it ran fine, just a bit louder. Are your spark plugs & wires in good shape (missing vs sputtering)? Also check inside the distributor cap for corrosion/carbon build up. If all that is ok, then I would start with the basics: first try running a complete fuel system cleaner through it for the next two tanks, that should clear any partially clogged fuel injectors. If no luck, then replace the fuel filter, and try it, if it still sputters you can check the fuel pump strainer if it looks ok, then you might want to replace the fuel pump.
