It sounds like your needle an seat in the carburetor got a small particle of dirt or rust or something in it all you can do is tap the carburetor with like the handle of a screwdriver or tap the carburetor in a few different places with a rubber or plastic hammer that might fix it for awhile but you will need to buy a carburetor rebuild kit.

Your needle and seat is leaking inside the fuel bowl it can be adjusted but should shut off when bowl is full, it will need to be replaced, you say it happens when key is on, is the vehicle fitted with an electric fuel pump, this will cause leakage, as the needle will not seal with the pressure of the elec pump.

My car started having trouble starting back up after being shut off for only a short time and now is dying while driving


the car with need to be spimmed, theres no fuel in the motor,,do you have fuel injection, if you have fuel injection you are going to find out how to get the fuel into the ejcedtor,
if you have a carburetor than just pour some gas into the carburetor and turn the key once you get the car crank over and some gas in the system the fuel will pick up and the car should run

Is the car fuel injected or carbureted? If it is fuel injected, the most likely problem is a distributor pick-up. In most cases, it's cheapest to replace the distributor as an assembly. With a carburetor, you need to check fuel pump volume. You may have a restriction or perhaps the carburetor itself needs to be gone through.

1985 Ford f250 was running fine, let sit for couple weeks and would not start. disconnected fuel line from carburetor and no fuel coming through when turned over


I would suspect your fuel pump is getting weak. Regular driving kept it full, but where it sat for a couple weeks had time to drain and won't pick up fuel again.

i had the exact same thing happen to me with my first car, a 1966 mercury comet.

i replaced the fuel pump, rebuilt the carburetor (twice), and finally rebuilt the entire engine! still, every time afterwards, the car ran ok, then would cut off again!

it turned to be just a $2 clogged fuel filter. i' suspect the same with your vehicle. after removing the filter, simply blow through it. any resistance, means it needs replacing.

2002 Chevy Impala wont start after letting sit after it warms up


Almost sound's like vapor lock , the fuel boils in the fuel injector rail , turns to vapor ! That was a common problem with carburetors , letting the vehicle hot soak after shutting down the vehicle an letting it sit for 10- 15 mins. The fuel would boil away ! Are the cooling fans working ? After turning off a hot engine the cooling fans can run on without the key being on , do you hear fans run ? What engine does your impala have ? 3.4 or 3.8 L . Has the check engine light come on ? The fuel pressure regulator could be leaking fuel . Pull the vacuum hose off the regulator after shut off the vehicle , is there fuel coming out of the regulator ? Dribbling out the end of the hose ? This could be bleeding the fuel from the fuel rail ! Good luck , hope i've given you something's to check that you haven't already .

What are the signs and symptoms of a fuel pump needing replaced. Other than the obvious that the car will not start 2000 Nissan frontier V6, 3.3L 4x4 crew cab


You don't hear it running when your turn the key on just before the crank position.

You have replaced the fuel filter and it was pretty much stopped up. (destroyed pump trying to pump through stopped up filter.)

Because it was going bad you couldn't drive fast because it wasn't pumping enough fuel.

Disconnect fuel line and see if fuel comes out when you turn the key on.

Spray some carburetor cleaner into the engine an see if it starts ! I don't think 58 psi fuel pressure is enought ! Has to be above 60 psi .415-455 kPa (60-66 psi).

My dodge durango(2003) shut off on me when i was driving yesterday. Engine cranks but doesn't start. Relays and fuses are all good. any ideas?


It sounds like the fuel pump has failed, I'd start by checking the fuel pressure. Turn everything off so you hear whether on not the fuel pump runs when you turn the key to "on". The pump should run for 3-5 seconds and the stop and it won't start running again, until you turn the key to "start".
