Sounds like the accelerator pump in the carb is bad. With the engine off open the choke butterfly and quickly open and close the throttle while looking down the throttle bore. There should be a solid stream of fuel as you depress the throttle. If no fuel check the accelerator pump and the orange rubber check valve. If there is a good stream of fuel check choke settings.

Ran out of gas. got gas, splashed a little gas in the carb? (air inductor) looks like a carb under the doghouse. now, won't start, wants to but won't keep running. 1994 dodge primetime van.


Replace fuel filter. when you ran out of fuel you picked up water in the bottom of the tank. Turn the ignition switch on and off several times to prime the injectors before trying to start. The water in the tank may have damaged the fuel pump. Do not damage the starter. If it does not start right away, riding the starter is not going to help matters. Investigate the fuel problem.

Hard to start, no fuel to carb


If you take the fuel line off at the carb and crank the engine, does the pump push fuel out of the line ?

I put a brand new pump and filter on it and once my 87 dodge dakota warms up it starts spitting and sputtering once it dies there is no gas going to the carb until it cools down?? Why?


Interesting.
Its possible the vent for the gas tank is not working - - you might try running the truck with the gas cap loose to verify.
You have checked the carb and you know for a fact there is no fuel inside it when it dies ? And you know the pump is not pumping fuel when it dies ?

My gmc jimmy truck starts with starting fluid then stopS


sounds like no gas getting to the carb. plugged fuel filter, fuel line, bad fuel pump. the carb should squirt a little gas when the throttle is pumped. leave ignition off while looking down the carb and pump the throttle linkage to visually check that gas is squirting down the carb with each stroke of the linkage. maybe you are just out of gas!!

Have a 90 f-250 5.8 gas burner. sat in a warehouse for 2 years. new battery and gas. starts and idles great. run up rpms for 2 minutes and it starts choking out. let off fuel and goes back to idling...


Carburetta is fouled. Run fine on choke - rich mixture. As it warms up and choke pulls off, its starving for gas.
First try adding fuel system cleaner to the gas tank. Do NOT go overboard. No more than double the recommended mix ratio.
The alternative is to remove the carb, open the bowl and spray out the jets and venturi with carb cleaner.

Its possible you may help it by removing the air filter and spraying every orifice you find on top of the carb. With carb cleaner. Be very carefull not to flood, pool carb cleaner in intake as this is not healthy for engine either. You can do this with engine running, so as not to pool, but slowly is best, both in engine speed and volume of carb cleaner.

I have an issue with a 87 toyota pick up carburetor. Sometimes it doesnt want to start and sometimes it does a friend told me its that diaphram on the front of the carb with the 3 bolts but he could not...


Okay, your freind may be right, that part is called the accelerator pump, it is used for starting the truck, when you pump the gas to start it this pumps a few squirts of gas into the carb. what concerns me is that you hold the gas pedal to the floor to start it, most of the time an internal leaking carb floods the engine and holding the pedal down will let it start, a quick test would be to use a carb cleaner spray and before trying to start the truck hit the gas pedal and see if inside from the top of the carb look and see if you see a squirt of gas spray out, you will need some one to push the gas pedal or you can do it at the carb, if it squirts gas then the accelerator pump may be good and carb may be leaking and need rebuilding but if it doesnt squirt then its bad and then i want you to spray the carb cleaner into the carb and try to start the truck and if its due to the accel pump then after you spray into carb the truck should fire up and run without having to hold the pedal to the floor, if thats the case then replace accel pump if it still doesnt fire until you hold gas down then crab needs rebuilding . good day. hope this is helpful.

Will not start not getting fuel to carb


Prime the carb and see if it starts for about 3 seconds. If you can manually get it to start, the problem is in the fuel line most likely the fuel pump that is in the gas tank. The fuel filters do not just plug up without notice but the fuel pump will go in a micro second. Here is a tip...........always always always keep a 1/4 tank of gas or more in the gas tank. The fuel pump inside the gas tank stays cool due to the fact that the gas cools it. This helps extend the life of electronic fuel pump.
