    injectors not opening? are you getting cank and cam signals to engine ECU? ECU needs these signals to then power up injectors to open.

Changed fuel pump i put a new battery in changed fuel relay switch and still wont start spryed startin fluid in air hose it will crank and imediatley die? what do i do i have tried everything people...

is the security light flashing when the key is turned on? if so you have a security issue and not a fuel pump problem. the ECM shuts off the fuel injectors so the car won't start. the ignition fire is still good so the car runs on starting fluid. check the light and then email me with more info.

Car started not startin well if was left 4 a few day s will start and miss fire then run good now she won't start at all not even fire were do i start ?

you need to sort out if fuel or spaark issue. Can you hear fuel pump in gas tank run for 5 seconds when you turn the key to ON? Spray a burst of starting fluid into the throttle body or bgi air intake hose and see if it starts for a few seconds. If yes, then you have a fuel issue, maybe need a pump. Need to drop the tank to do that though. Check for 40 psi of pressure first.

If not, then it could be no spark. bad crank sensor, cam sensor, etc.

Is the yellow check engine light on too? If yes, get codes to find cause.

My 2004 suburban wont start i have to spray starting fluid

Does it stay running after you spray it or just die out ? If it stays running it sounds like time for a tune up. If it just dies out you may need a fuel filter replacement or a fuel pump replacement.

1997 silverado 5.0 2wd everytime i have to start my truck i have to spray starting fluid in the air vents..i changed map sensor, temp sensor,coolant sensor and still wont start unless i spray startin...

You may indeed be a bit low on fuel pressure. This one needs a minimum of 60 psi to start properly and usually if you are just a pound or two low on pressure it will be difficult to start when the engine is cold but will then generally start ok the rest of the day as long as the engine is still a little warm...but the problem will return again as soon as it cools fully. It may also be taking too long a time to build up sufficient fuel pressure to start at any time so I'd have someone test the fuel pressure with a good, very accurate, gauge as that may tell the tale on what is happening. Good luck with your problem, hope this helps a bit!

My 1999 GMC Sierra wont start. It has the 5.3l V8

Sounds like a security problem that is preventing starting. It will run for a few seconds and then die.

2001 bonneville, just up and die..........

Replace the idle position sensor. If you can't get the car to an autoparts store for a code. if it is not the IPS then it is probably the Fuel Pressure regulator or the Crankshaft position sensor.

2000 Chevy Blazer Cranks but wont start...

What about the fuel filter????? Have you changed it out??? If you can spary something like a started fluid, that means it is a fuel problem. My last check, it has to be above 50-psi on the fuel pressure to make it run right. I had 35psi, but whould not get over 30mph or down hill maybe 45mph. Check both filter & pressure, but check pressure with a New fule filter!!!!
