97cc baja doodle bug won't start


Assuming that the engine can be turned over with the starter, the most likely culprit is it's not getting enough fuel, especially if it's been sitting for 6 months or more. AT YOUR OWN RISK, remove the air duct after the air cleaner and pour a shot-glass full OR LESS of gas directly into the carburetor or throttle body. It should start and at least run briefly. If it does, then add at least 3-5 gallons to the fuel tank. If you've run out of gas, then adding just one gallon is not enough. Today's fuel-injection systems have pressurized fuel lines which need at least a gallon just to fill all the pumps and filters between the tank and the engine. Good Luck, TechJoel

2009 chevy aveo ran out of gas now it wont crank


No crank to a mechanic means the starter motor doesn't spin the engine over, is this what you mean? Or do you mean the engine cranks over but will not fire up and run? If it is the latter have you added at least 3 gallons of gas to the tank to make sure the electric fuel pump inside the tank can properly prime? If not do that, also you can spray starting fluid into the engine engine air intake pipe after adding the 3 gallons and see if that gets it going. If it still will not start you have burned up the fuel pump and you will need to drop the fuel tank and replace the pump, remember the pump is cooled and lubricated by the gasoline it runs in, so when you run low on fuel or out you can very quickly severely damage the small electric fuel pump. Never let the gas gauge level go below 1/8 tank to prevent premature fuel pump failure.

1987 mercrusier 180hp wont stay running unless i pump the gas


Could be a small amount of rust got into fuel filter from sitting empty, try changing fuel filter before worrying about the fuel pump.Filters could be partly plugged and its always smart to start with the cheaper fixes first.

My 1996 continental has been sitting for about a year and now wont start. How do I reset the computer system to get the electronic fuel pumps to working? We are obviously not getting fuel to the car


The fuel pump passed.It developed corrosion and went out.You may be able to revive it by having some one hit the gas tank as they crank the engine.

04 saab 93 turbo ran out of gas yesterday put 3 gallon in the car turns over but will not start???????


you may have to crank for awhile to purge the entire system of air. If that doesnt work you may want to check the fuel filter and fuel pump. If you ran the vehicle dry then all the junk that was sitting on the bottom of your fuel tank is now in your fuel filter and could have clogged it.

Difficult to start have to keep pumping the gas been sitting 8 m


To stop this from happening in the future, add fuel stabalizer to fuel tank when you store it. Run your car for 10 minutes before shutting it off. It would also be helpful to fog the engine also before storing. You can get fogging oil at any auto supply store. As for your immediate problem try adding carburator cleaner to gas tank.

take an ohm meter reading on your spark plug outputs between the three coils (if this has that type) big difference replace it and maybe the controller also.
