91 Suzuki samurai runs fine for about 30 seconds then dies. What would cause this?


Check your fuel pressure, I suspect the electric pump is going bad...

1999 blazer sputters at Idle and take off. Changed plugs and fuel filter. Got what looked like coffee out of old filter did fuel pressure check got 60 psi when turned key to on, then dropped to 54-55 psi...


With pressure like that I would say there is nothing wrong with the pump. A 5 psi drop with the engine running would indicate that the injectors are getting a good supply of fuel. I would have the fault codes read to find a fault before I wasted money chasing something that may show up in the test.

95 blazer fuel prob's.


It drops when it is turned off through the return the pump might be getting weak If you keep using the starting fluid you will blow the intake off of it or it will get hooked on it and won't start without it.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

Fuel pressure intermittently drops causing sputter and die.


check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.
if you are getting 12 volts at your fuel pump the fuel pump is possible to run tuel it gets warm then shut down to a lower rpm I would then replace the fuel pump

Truck wont start


Spray starting fluid in throttle body to see if it starts if so change the fuel pump. Check fuel pump make sure it is kick on the fuel pressure should read 30 psi to start the truck.

Won't start, fuel pump runs at key on, spark at coil wire into distributor is yellow, little or no spark at plug wire ends


Sounds like bad distributor cap or rotor. If ones bad, might as well change both. Take off the cap and if there is a black color on the ends of the prongs, or on the end of the rotor, time to replace. Is it getting fuel into motor?

make sure to do a fuel pressure test and the presure should stay at 35 psi even after turning ingition off the pressure must to be at least 25 to 30 psi for a few minutes, if it goes to cero or close to it, after turning ignition on then you might need a neww fuel pump installed on it
