Did you checked the fuel filter and regulator? if so try to get a reading and see what is the psi(30-40psi) also do a leak test(using a fuel gauge) if the pressure is correct then you may have a restrcted line.

Runs fine then it trys to die and runs very ruff acts like its starving for fuel changed fuel filter and still does it ?


Check the fuel pump pressure.
Also; when you use gas with ethanol, it attracts humidity that can turn into water during storage.
The answer is premium fuel.

Ran my 02 envoy out of gas,after refueling started right up,went 3 blocks, died again just as before and now won't start at all. It turns over but no fire. We replaced cam and crank sensors-no go.help


Is there any fuel? Running a fuel injected vehicle out of gas is not good for the fuel pump as the gas is what is used to lubricate and cool the pump. If fuel pressure ok? Try banging on the tank with your fist while someone cranks the engine. If it starts or trys to start, suspect a bad fuel pump

My 94 Thunderbird won't start until like the 4th crank, then it runs like a champ. It acts like it isn't getting any fuel. Please help!


You may be right on your hunch.
The fuel pump gets power from the pump relay for 3 seconds when you turn the key on, then no power until the engine starts. If the fuel pressure is low it could take several trys to get the pressure up to normal and the engine start.
A mechanic would check the pump relay and the fuel pressure with a gauge before and after cranking the engine.

Parked 1988 Chevy Celebrity in garage last night. Today it wont start. If I pump the accelerator a bunch it acts like it wants to start and as soon I quit pumping it just turns over. Fuel pump kicks on...


Hello: 1st, pumping the accelerator on a fuel injected GM car does NOT do any good. In fact if you put the accelerator to the floor you put the system in the lean mode ie, reduce fuel. You will need a fuel pressure gage and there should be a schrader valve on the fuel lines/fuel rail where you can connect the fuel pressure gage. The fuel pressure should be about 10 psi if you have throttle body injection. Is your car a 4 cylinder? If its a 4 cylinder you may not have a schrader valve to connect the pressure gage. You will need a high dollar kit to tap into the fuel line. Have someone attempt to start the car and you remove the air cleaner an see if the injector is spraying fuel.

The engine turns over, but the car won't start. It acts like it's out of gas but there is plenty of gas in it!


if you have fuel injection check the fuel pressure at the injection rail. If you don't have at least 35 pounds of pressure with the ignition in the on position then your fuel pump is not functioning. Check the fuses in the interior fuse panel and the Power distribution box under the hood as well as the fuel pump relay in the power distribution box. If all are good and the pump is still not working replace the fuel pump.

I have a 1992 Jimmy 4.3 liter, 4x4. My Problem it acts as if it is running out of gas. The fuel pump is running, there is gas at the throttle body. If runs well for a time then it acts as if it has run out...


What might help, if you can get, or have a in line fuel pressure gauge installed, to see if your pressure is consistant from the pump. At least this will eliminate the fuel pump if your readings are good.(I seem to think that TBI pressure was around 12psi, and fuel injection was around 40 psi.)

Not enough Fuel Comming From injectors


Did you run diagnostics on your truck? a code would be helpful.Now lets see.From my experience if you have to do all of this,your ECM is probably bad.And sometimes the best diagnostian can't figure this out.I would change the computer,get one from the junk yard with matching numbers, will work just as good as a new one,and you will not continue to increase your cost much.
