What type of vehicle is this or is it a snowmobile. If it is a car or not you have back pressure on the engine and the fuel will not be drawn into the cylinders to fire. On most trucks or cars this is caused by the catalytic converter or muffler being plugged.

Has fuel won't start


Older Vehicle i am Not sure but if its carbureted then check ur floats. If its getting fuel to the Injectors/Carburetor then its electric! Check For Spark or Mani fold air Leak by spraying starting fluid on the manifold & Carb. if it kicks then u no the problem lies around there. if no luck then its either bad compression or Spark issue.. New Plugs ? Coils ? Check for spark if its getting Fuel.

Hope This Helps :)

I have a 1997 Tahoe 5.7L 4 door model that ran fine all day. Next morning it wouldnt start. It will try to turn over but wont crank. The fuel pump does engage, filter is clean. Fuel flow goes to injectors...


Well,first off you need to make sure you are getting spark to the spark plugs first.Get some insulated pliers and pull off a spark plug wire,hold it next to the frame or exhaust and have someone spin the engine over.You should see spark jumping between the plug and the ground.If you do not,then you have an ignition problem.If you can spray fuel in the intake and it wont even try to start,then it sounds like you have an igniton problem.Verify that before going too far with the fuel system.If you have spark,then it may be your ECM could be fried and is not letting the fuel injectors open but it should still try and start if you are spraying fuel directly into the air intake.IF it has spark.

I have purchased a 1989 E350 and it has been sitting for about ten years. it was running when it was parked. It has the EFI 460 engine.I have a new fuel pump pulling and returning fuel to a five gallon jug...


80 - 90 psi isnt enough compression u need minimum 125psi per ciylender to make the fire. pull the plugs on it and pour a tablespoon of trans fluid down each hole this should recondition the rings. let it sit overnight and go out and turn it over it will push all the fluid out then replace the plugs and hope for the best. if still readfing 80 - 90 psi u will need to do heads on the vehicle.

CYLINDER 6 MISFIRING ON A 1998 VOYAGER


Your cylinder only has a few problems that can cause this. 1. you need a spark. Take a spark plug wire that you know is good out of another car and try it on your plug 6 it might just be a bad wire. If there is no difference pull the plug with the wire attached and see if you have a spark by grounding the side of the plug and seeing if a spark jumps the gap between the center electrode on your plug 6 and the little arm. If not try another plug on 6 to see if your not getting spark. If your not getting spark on 6 but you are on the others then your coil is fine it is either yout distributer cap, rotor or sensor in the distributer. If you have spark then it is a fuel issue. 1998 should have EFI check the connections to the fuel injector and fuel rail. If they look good pull the injector and have it cleaned. Much cheaper than having it replaced. Lots of 'injector doctor' shops you can overnight mail to. Other than that it would be an airflow/intake manifold/exhaust/camshaft/valve issue and that's going to be a lot more involved

1997 Chevy K2500 will not start wet wet under hood.


Sorry in the delay getting back to you.......on....Check for injector pulse.
Look into the throttle body......where the air goes into the engine....in the top,middle of the engine ......you will have to remove the air filter......and look for fuel spray from the injectors...."when the truck stops running on you"....If no spray......you have fuel problem which may lead to the ignition module or dist pick up.
No RPM pulse......no spray.
If spray is present......check for lack of spark which again may lead to the ignition module or dist pick up.
Just carry a spark plug with you and pull a wire...insert plug,,,ground plug and look for spark.
Let me know what you have found.
