Lincoln L's V6 no fire no fuel wont start


If your missing spark--fuel--injector pulse, I check for rpm signal, that comes from crank sensor. What is year and model? Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

How long since tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

Did you test fuel system before replacing the pump ? Test fuel pump electrical circuit ? Go on youtube an check out videos on basic electrical trouble shooting . Do you know how it works ? Did you test for spark , engine compression ?

I have a 1963 chevy nova II straight-6. I am having trouble getting it to run without pouring gasoline into the carb. I have replaced the filters and fuel pump. What else could be the problem?


the needle and seat in the carburetor might be stuck shut. Pull the fuel supply line off of the carburetor and unhook the coil wire, so the engine will not fire, crank the engine and make sure the fuel pump is pumping fuel to the carb. If there isn't fuel getting to the carb then you will need to look elsewhere, like maybe the sending unit in the tank. But if you do have good fuel getting to the carb then it is probably the needle and seat in the carb.

Will not start but turns over


Fuel or spark plug trouble could be a cause for an engine not starting. Check for spark plug spark. Remove spark plug wire and see if the wire makes a spark on engine when spark plug wire is energized. Do not tounch engine or come in contact so that you are shocked when testing for spark plug action. Check fuel pump to see if fuel is being supplied. Disconnect fuel line and place the fuel line inside a container to capture fuel. Do not cause a fire from loss of control of fuel line during trouble shooting.

Not firing


How is your fuel pressure after the fuel pump replacement? (requires adapters and a gauge.) You also can use "test fuel" (like starting fluid) to help determine if the problem is fuel or ignition. Just be careful as the stuff is explosive. For more in depth trouble shooting you might want to visit a Suzuki forum. (Your Tracker is a rebadged Suzuki Sidekick.)

I need to determine if exsisting in tank fuel pump is good. I have the tanked dropped and fuel pump out. My question is how can I tell if the old pump is still good? My blazer would run before, I thought I...


Ground the motor (electrically) to the frame of your Blazer the apply some 12v power (or 13v) to see if 'she' hums or pumps for that matter. (Some will hum but not pump a thing of course). I'm guessing you have an older K-5 or something. There's a filter between the fuel line and carb if nobody ever showed you that one (on the older ones with 350's 4bbl's anyway).

Trouble shoot 1994 GMC will not start


The only two things that can cause an engine not to run is fuel and/or fire. Check the plugs. Pull a wire and ground it to see if it is getting fire. If it is getting fire then its a fuel problem. Anything from a fuel pump, to an ignition fuse. Coils, sensors etc. Fuel or fire.

Carb of fuel pump


ok ... it could be that the carb is so gummed up with old fuel that none is getting into the engine..... some trouble shooting will be involved if you buy the vehicle

No power to fuel pump, relay is good, engine cranks over but won't start.


You need to follow a detailed troubleshooting procedure in a repair manual.
Check for spark plug fire during cranking after it dies.
No spark = ignition problem= computer will not fire injectors, and possibly cut out pump also.
Good spark = pump wonky, or power to pump system.
Also, other quick tests... when the thing dies, and then you crank,
1) Thump the fuel pump in the tank, if you can. A bad fuel pump might start up again.
2) Shoot some ether carb cleaner in the TB. If it only fires off the ether, the ignition system is no longer suspect.
