What has happened is allergy built up due to the rotten gas that was left in the vehicle. You should use a conditioner if you are to store the vehicle for any length of time. You may have to try and clean the fuel system with a fuel conditioner. Remove the fuel line from fuel pump and work your way from the up to the lift pump. This should give you an idea as to were the allergy is most concentrated. You may have to change your fuel filter several times to eliminate the problem.

Car has been parked 4 years


any time a car has been parked for a long time there are things that need adjusting sometimes before it starts, fresh gas, check fuel lines and filters-may be clogged, carb adjustment, new spark plugs and cables. All of this stuff will cost you about $200

Engine compartment partiallly submerged in water now wont start


1) you will need to drain the engine oil and refill it before you get it running again, the oil will be contaminated with water + change filter too.
2) you may also have water in the fuel, add a small bottle of methyl hydrate (gas line antifreeze) to your gas tank to neutralize the water.
3) remove your air filter and replace with a fresh dry one.
4) remove all the spark plugs and drape a clean white rag over the plug holes.
5) crank the engine over for about 30 seconds then have a look at the rag - if there are wet spots, there is water in the cylinders. repeat until you no longer get wet spots.
6) leave plugs out for a day for cylinders to dry out, then install fresh new plugs. as long as there is no internal damage, car should start now.
7) change engine oil and filter again to make sure all water is removed.

1999 grand voyager le how do i replace fuel filter


Hello,

To replace the fuel filter of Your 1999 grand voyager, please follow the steps below, You will be in need of these instruments, Line wrench set, 3/8-inch ratchet and socket set, Replacement fuel filter kit.
  1. Park the 1999 Grand Voyager in a ventilated area and engage the emergency brake,
  2. Walk to the back of the 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager and completely unscrew the gas cap from the fill neck on the gas tank. Taking the cap off will remove the pressure in the fuel filter.
  3. Jack the back of the 1999 Grand Voyager up and put the jack stands under the rear jack points. Slowly release the jack so that the van is sitting evenly and securely on the jack stands.
  4. Slide under the passenger-side rear of the van behind the tire. Locate the fuel filter that is mounted to the upper part of the gas tank. This type of fuel filter has three fuel lines coming out of it.
  5. Position the drip pan under the gas tank in the general vicinity of the fuel filter. Using a clean rag, compress the fuel lines on the ends. The fuel lines are held to the fuel filter by a plastic clip. Compressing the end of the fuel line will unlock the fuel line from the clip. Pull out on the fuel lines. Do this to all three of the fuel lines.
  6. Remove the bolt from the fuel filter bracket with the 3/8-inch drive ratchet and a 3/8-inch drive socket. Then, pull the fuel filter out of the bracket and put it into the drip pan.
  7. Position the new fuel filter into the bracket. Screw the mounting bolt in and tighten it down tight with the ratchet and socket.
  8. Push all three fuel lines onto the appropriate fuel filter ports. Hook the fuel lines to the same fuel filter ports that they were hooked to on the old filter.
  9. Pull the drip pan out from under the van. Screw the gas cap back onto the fill neck of the gas tank until it clicks. Then, turn the ignition key on and off five different times. Crank the engine on the fifth turn of the ignition. Inspect the new fuel filter for leaks while the engine is running. Then, turn the engine off.
  10. 1999 Grand Voyager back up and pull the jack stands out from under the van. Lower the van back to the ground and slide the jack out.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

1997 Dodge Intrepid has set up for several months while in hospital. Will not fire. Put small gas amount in air intake and it fires and runs for 10-15 seconds. Gas probably not getting to injectors. Pump...


Several months could be a tank of bad gas. When turning the ignition to on position the pump runs for 3 to 5 seconds to pressurize the system, next find the valve on fuel rail and press it, Shield with a rag while doing this. You should get fuel. Check the way it smells, bad gas has an awful smell that can make you hurl! Attach a fuel pressure tester, it should be around 50lbs. If it's bad empty the tank by pressing the needle and relieving the pressure. Next disconnect fuel line before the filter get a container to catch the gas. IN the engine conpartment disconnect the fuel pump relay and put a jumper wire to run the pump until tank is drained. Instal new filter and pump if needed and add a can of "Seafoam" to the tank with fresh gas. Run pump until there's fuel at the fuel rail then put relay back in. now we should have ignition and constant running. Hope this helped.

2000 grand prix, 3800 when it warms up losses power


I would have to say the fuel/water separator filter is clogged up. The filter will remove water and crud from the gas. It looks more like a small can under the car. If the car set up with a low tank of gas, water will condensate inside and once the new fuel sloshes around it gets all this junk off the walls of the tank and that gets sucked in the filter. Try and replace that first..

Hi, I have a 1986 Chevy Van G20, V8, 5 Liter, 4 barrel carb. I cannot start the van, (all of a sudden it happened). It has a freshly charged battery, new starter, new fuel pump, new fuel filter, and has...


If it is getting spark and fuel check the timing. The timing chain may have jumped.Take out #1 spark plug and tap engine till the compression stroke comes up. To check just hold your finger over the plug hole and the compression will blow it out. Then rock crank by hand and set to top dead center. Take distributer cap off and see if rotor faces #1 cylinder. If you have spark to the plugs and the plugs are good and you have fuel timing or compression is all that is left.

It wont Start


Well if your lucky you can replace the fuel filter add a gas stabilizer and some new gas and you might get it to go. After a car has been sitting so long the oil runs off the parts like the crank and rod bearings and could cause a dry start ruining the bearings, and after that long the gas gels and does not burn well and can plug the filter. So change the oil and filter as well as water and oil make an acid that can damage seals and engine parts.

95 Mighty Max has been sitting for one year


Unfortunately if all you did was dilute the stale fuel you will have to remove the entire fuel system and clean/replace.Stale (old)fuel becomes acidic and works like an acid.If you remove the fuel system yourself avoid getting it on your skin as it burns(personal experience)At least its not an ignition fault as the engine wants to run with an independant supply of fuel(start fluid)Sorry cant supply cheap alternative but there you are Good luck and let me know how you go with it.
