The fuel shut-off switch (inertia switch) is located probably in the rear somewhere, like behind a side or kick panel , or sometimes it is located in the kick panel on the front passenger side.

But this switch is only for fuel shut off in case of accident or emergency. It will not affect the starting circuit. Something else would be preventing from cranking the engine over. Since you have a new starter, there must be a problem in the start circuit. If security light is flashing when trying to start it, it must be activated. If not, you need to see if power is going to starter solenoid with key held in crank position.

I have a '91 chev. s 10 truck 2.8 liter v6. It starts right up but wont hold idle i have to pedal the gas to keep it running


The computer controls idle speed by the idle air control valve on the side of the throttle body. The valve regulates the amount of air entering the intake.
The throttle body could be dirty or the control valve may be faulty.

I have a 95 Taurus sho that was not running right when I bought it. Since I have replaced crank and cam sensors, o2 sensors, knock sensor, wiring harness checked fuel pressure, checked compression,...


You did not mention the throttle body or the idle air control valve.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed to enter the intake manifold thru the throttle body.
If the idle air control valve is faulty, or there is a vac leak, or the throttle body is dirty, the computer can not keep the idle speed at the factory setting.

Replaced everything under the sun on our 87 olds delta 88...wont fire on its own but will fire and run fine as long as u shoot it with starter fluid. We replaced starter, fuel pump, filter, plugs, wires,...


Can you here the fuel pump running?no, check fuse,and pump relay. Check pump fuel pressure,at the fuel injector rail,or throttle body. Check for voltage at the top wiring on the fuel nozzel.While cranking look for pulsating voltage.None, test computer,scan system. let me know the outcome.

Car wont start


Hi,
If the engine cranks over normally when you attempt to start you car, but the engine does not start, the problem may be NO FUEL, NO SPARK or NO COMPRESSION. The engine needs adequate fuel pressure, a properly timed spark and normal compression to start.


1) To find why the engine won't start, remove the air inlet tube from the throttle body, push the throttle open and spray a small amount of aerosol starting fluid into the engine. Crank the engine. If it has spark and compression but NO FUEL, it will start and run a few seconds before dying. If it does NOT start, it probably has NO SPARK.

2)Another method to check for spark is to pull a spark plug wire off of a spark plug (if it has plug wires, coil-on-plug ignitions do not) and place the open end of the plug wire near a metal surface on the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch for a spark. DO NOT hold the wire while doing this as it can shock you. If you see a spark, the problem is not spark, but most likely NO FUEL or NO COMPRESSION. If you do not see a spark, the problem is in the IGNITION CIRCUIT.

3)Proper fuel pressure is critical for fuel injected engines to start and run. You should hear the fuel pump inside the fuel tank buzz for a couple of seconds when the ignition is turned on (no buzz means the pump is not running and the engine is not getting fuel). You can smell the tailpipe for gasoline vapors after cranking the engine. If you smell gas, the problem is likely not fuel but NO SPARK. You can also remove the plastic cap and press the schraeder valve test fitting on the fuel rail to see if there is any fuel pressure to the engine (not a very accurate test because fuel pressure must be at a certain level for the engine to start, for that you need a gauge). Even so, no fuel at the fuel rail would tell you fuel is not getting to the engine..


Thank you !!

Car cranks but wont start


replace your injectors. your vehicle is getting the fuel to start from the starter fluid. however the injectors arent giving it the gas that it needs to stay cranked

The truck choke off when going do a slope at slOw speed. I


Check the IAC valve (idle air control) might be dirty and sticking. Remove air intake hose to engine, spray throttle body cleaner in upper right opening in throttle body to clean, also spray all areas of throttle body while opening and closing butterfly, then start truck and spray IAC valve and openings while running. If that does not work replace the IAC valve with new one.

Toyota 4runner wil not start


Check the Spark plugs, starter, or the battery wires. It depends on if it is trying to turn over or if its not doing anything at all. If its trying to turn over then its most likely your starter or spark plugs or could simply be its getting too much air due to a leak. If Its not doing anything at all no clicking nothing then its probably a problem with the battery wires. If its just making a clicking noise then its yoru starter.
