There has to be a fuel delivery problem. The fuel pump is not working/fuel filter is restricted/injector not working. Start with determining if the fuel pump is operational.

1995 Buick LeSabre 3.8 Liter Wont start unless I push down on gas pedal like it wants more gas, Why? Runs OK when running


Possibly a bad or dirty Idle Air Control motor. The engine computer controls the operation of this motor to control idle speed. A pintle on the motor extends and retracts, according to signal from the computer. The pintle controls an air passage below it to give or take away air during idle -when the throttle shaft is closed, no air will get into the engine through the throttle body except through the idle air passage . The IAC motor or valve is on the throttle body, with a 4 wire connector. Take it off and look for carbon or coking deposits around the valve's pintle, and in the air passage beneath it. With the idle valve off, plug the connector back on it, then watch the pintle as the key is turned to on. If there is no movement whatsoever, the motor is probably bad.

I have also heard that a bad coolant temperature sensor can cause such a hard start. If the computer does not know the engine is cold, it won't put enough gas into the cylinders for easy starts. The engine needs more gas to start and run when cold.

Ran out of gas and then I put gas now my car won't start the engine turns but won't start how can I fix it


Some vehicles need a substantial amount of fuel put in the tank after they have run out, Sounds daft that they will completely empty the tank, but won't restart unless you put a minimum of 10 litres back in. Most modern tanks are fitted with a swirl pot that cools unused fuel returned to the tank. Try putting extra fuel in it.

93 geo tracker will turn over but wont start unless you pour gas in intake then will continue to run until you kill it. will not start back unless you pour more gas in intake.


Sounds like something is letting the fuel pressure bleed off after the motor is turned off. Can you monitor the pressure? (Requires adapters and gauge.) Trouble shooting will be a little different between the 8 valve or 16 valve motors. (The fuel injecton systems are different.) You might want to go to a Suzuki Forum. (Your Tracker is a rebadged Suzuki.)

I run out of gas put 5 gl back in now it wont turn over


By "TURN OVER" do you mean CRANKING or STARTING because in my nomenclature these are two very differnt things. If you mean it "CRANKS" but will not "START" after adding fuel ....have someone listen for fuel pump at filler opening, easy to hear for 5-6 secs. after turning key to ON position. If you hear pump "WHIRRING" are you sure running out of gas is what stopped your vehicle from running 'cause adding fuel ,....... and not cranking over are so completely unrelated I don't know where to start unless maybe you had a diesel motor and added gasoline

this sounds like the high pressure oil pump ( HPOP ) is weak. The HPOP is what fires your injectors. After it starts its building pressure..

Pull the vacuum line off the fuel pressure regulator and see if gas is in the line. If you have gas in the line replace the regulator.
