Check your fuel pump most fuel pumps go out on full tanks. the fuel pump will run hot on low tanks and when the cold gas is put on it it seizes the pump up. it is problay in the fuel tank.

2001 ford taurus that wont start. I am getting fuel pressure. I installed new plugs, wires, and coil pack. There is pressure in the radiator fill tank just from trying to start the car. Is that norma


Take off the radiator fill cap.
Top off the radiator.
Crank the engine.

Are there bubbles or is there water spouting out of the radiator fill hole?

Yes: likely cylinder head gasket failure or cracked header.

No: Pressure test cooling system after topping off with a pressure tester. Locate source of leak.

Assuming the water leak isn't anything to do with the non-starting situation, which it probably is though form the sound of it, also check the following:

1) Air filter
2) Fuel filter
3) Manifold Air Pressure sensor.
4) Mass Air Flow sensor.

Car cranks but wont start


Could be timing belt/chain. A good indication would be if it cranks faster than it did when it would start. I am not fimiliar with your car, but on most cars you can remove the oil fill cap and see springs, rocker arms, etc. If you see "Stuff", have someone crank the engine while you look in the hole, and see if any thingys are moving. If you get any type of spark while cranking the engine, it's not the timing belt.

Truck sat for a few weeks, gas tank was on empty...filled it to about 1/4 tank and now it wont start, it just cranks. I did spray either in intake and it fires but dies.


it sounds like the fuel pump needs replacing.by spraying either and it starts tells me there is no fuel getting to the cylinders.

My 1998 Hyundai Elantra will not start after running out of gas.When I put gas in it ,it would crank but it took a long time to start. I drove it 3 miles and it shut off. I cranked it and cranked it,but it...


Don't let the car run out of gas. Fill the tank and run until the tank is half empty. Again fill the tank.
By driving until you run out of gas, you are letting sediments/dirt collected in the bottom of the tank to enter the engine. Rather they will block the fuel filter. Then gas will not reach the engine.
Clean the gas filter and your car will run fine.
The same advice again. Don't drive until the tank becomes empty.

I left my 1996 gmc seirra 1500 sit real low on gas,And now sometimes it will start and sometimes it will not,when it does it cranks for a while now it wont start it acts like it is starving for gas when it...


I don't know how long you let it sit or what climate you are located in so.... From what you said I would guess you have had water condensation in the tank. I would change the fuel filter, fill the tank with fresh fuel and add a container of "water remover" to the tank. If water is the problem this will allow the water to be mixed with the fuel in a very small percentage and burn it along with the fuel. Full or almost full tanks do not condense water. Empty or almost empty tanks do when allowed to sit for a while.

Ran out of fuel


The reason is: When you completely run out of gas your gas lines are completely drained of fuel. When you refuel the car the fuel lines are still empty, and you will need to crank the car until the fuel pump has filled the gas lines and established the correct fuel pressure.I also suggest you turn key to on position to let electrical system run fuel pump and when ready to crank over engine have battery hooked up to a battery charger this should do it!!
