Igood t sounds like water in the carb, (if it has one) or water in the fuel filter. Remove the fuel line from either the carb or injection system, turn the engine over until you get pure fuel through the line. reconnect, spray the starter fluid and it should go, it will osund rough, but a few good blips on the throttle, should clear the line. Let me know, if that doesn't work I have a few more things to try. Regards Dave

Do I have a bad fuel pump


Not symptoms of a pump. Sounds more like a bad idle air control valve. run some fuel system cleaned in it and run a full tank of gas to see if it changes.

My car sat idle for about a month but I had a friend start it occasionally to keep the battery up and running. One day the engine would not turn over when he tried to start it up. The lights come on like...


yeah, try starter fluid just to verify if it;s fuel or spark related. If it starts or tries to, then it's a fuel problem. You should be able to hear your pump turn on, when you turn key on, may need to stand by tank, when someone turns key on. it should activate for about 2 seconds, with key on.(that's to pressurize your system with gas) then when cranking, the pump should run(may not hear it then-so just listen when key is initially turned on. No noise: your pump may not be working. If you can hear the pump, it may be another issue.

Alrighty, I'm going to be as detailed as I possibly can. During our "cold snaps" the truck ('99 Isuzu Rodeo, V6, stand') struggled to start in the morning. Had everything tested and was told all...


I have a 1997 Rodeo. When my car idled rough or was hard to start, I was getting the P101 alarm that suggeted the MAF needed changed. Luckily my son has a 95' Rodeo so I am able to swap parts to help diagnos issues. It turned out that the idle air control valve that is mounted on the throttle body was the problem.

Your starter solenoid stuck on. (This may be internal to the starter). You need to replace the solenoid (or starter), then get the battery charged, and try again. If this has a carburetor (rather than fuel injection), you may need to prime it with starter fluid or a little gas in the throat of the carb (put the air filter assembly back on before you try to start it, you don't want to start a fire).

Sat for about 3 months and wont start


Put fresh gas in the tank along with Seafoam fuel system cleaner

Make sure you have spark at the plugs

Make sure fuel filter is not gummed up with varnish from dried up gas.

It should now start so long as the starter is working properly and it was in running condition before it sat.

Use starter fluid to help it get started.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage that starts then dies


There are a few things for you to do to get it running right. Any fuel that may have been in the system would have turned in to varnished and needs to be cleaned out of your fuel system. You can buy a can of Sea Foam from the Auto Parts Store and follow the instructions. THe other thing to is to buy a can of throttle body cleaner and clean out the throttle body and Idle air control valve which would cure the stalling problem. Start with that and give it a good run on the road and then do an oil and filter change to ge all the water condensation contamination out of the engine and also to the transmission fluid and filter change too. Good luck and this should na a good start to getting your car running 100% again.
