    is it a crank no start problem? or a no crank problem?

    By trade, I'm not a diesel guy...but, One item I know is that you should not use starting fluid in a diesel as it can do serious damage...high static compression causes a really nasty ignition that can cave in a piston top. Sounds like you have a fuel problem...check all filters ...Also make sure battery and starter can turn engine fast enough to get it to light.

Why wont 97 expedition eddie bauer run after startup?


Have you checked the fuel pump for any blockage? The car isnt getting any gas unless u manually pump it by pressing the pedal.. So start there
Sometimes when a engine requires excessive revving and throttle to stay afloat its a fuel supply problem. A clogged filter for example can be overcome with excessive throttle that drives the fuel pressure up enough to force it through, but it will barely trickle at idle and stall.

Usually the dead give away for fuel pump is when someone complains they have to floor it as soon as it turns over or it will die right away.

Is there a reset for the computer other than unhooking the battery or a reset for the fuel pump?


Could be the pump. Do you have the pressure at the fuel rail? If you have pressure and spark, then the noise you heard was probably lifter tap. No oil or over heated.

Get yourself a fuel pressure gauge and don't guess and start thrrowing parts at the think only to cost you more money,

Get a fuel pressure gauge, 2.4 L, 3.0 L and 3.8 L engine = 49 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch)Remove the ground cable from the negative battery postand also remove the fuel tank filler cap. Attach fuelrelease tool onto the fuel rail test port, then placethe open end into a suitable gasoline container andproceed to bleed down the pressurized fuel system.

3.3 L engine = 55 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch)Remove the ground cable from the negative battery postand also remove the fuel tank filler cap. Attach fuelrelease tool onto the fuel rail test port, then placethe open end into a suitable gasoline container andproceed to bleed down the pressurized fuel system

Try replacing the oil sending unit, Some years had a fuel pump shut of built in to the switch so if the oil pressure went down it would kill fuel pump to stop engine damage. Yours may be faulty

Turn on the key and listen by the fuel tank for the fuel pump to hum. A common problem is low fuel pressure. It will build pressure when the key is turned, use that fuel, and then the pressure drops. Kind of like when you're using a squirt gun that's getting empty.

Cavalier dies


you need to find the fuel pressure release around the fuel rail press the little tab when the car dies. If there is no fuel coming out from that point, your fuel pump is going.
