Check the fuel pump if it's electric along the frame or in the tank and it should be humming when pumping gas you should hear it when you turn the key on

B&s 22hp engine won't start

Hi Charles:
I'd start by checking the spark plug condition and function.
Wet........... no spark
Dry............ no fuel
Check for spark anyway. Hot and blue.
Try priming carb with a squirt of gas.
Drain and flush carb. You may need to remove and thoroughly clean if gummed up.

Changed the fuel pump and also got the timing. Chain changed But still want stay started. Ooh it is a 87 delta 88 oldsmobile

Have you changed the plugs and wires? If the plugs are very old, and the damper it is, the less it will stay running. Routine tuneup and oil changes on chevy motors and aside from a fluke parts breakage or abuse, they will last about forever.if it's tbi, check and clean all grounds, change the fuel filter, the module in distributor cap, (very rarely the distributor goes, *see bad ground) the coolant sensor (either sends too cold, putting too much fuel =running rich, or sends too hot, putting too little fuel = running lean) and also fuel pump (start with module, most of time it's that) used module is cheaper I used to cart spare in glove box and special bit for the screws.
If it's carbureted, check the fuel filter in the inlet at the carb, and also if you already changed the fuel pump, it might be faulty and not be pumping fuel.

What causes power loss in a 1990 gmc 3500 Sierra 350 engine when start and going up hills

When was the last time you changed the fuel filter or air filter...common causes are air filter, or blocked air intake, dirty carb, bad plug, wires, distributer, distributer button, fuel filter, water in gas, old gas,plugged exhaust pipe and last but not least and believe it or not too much dirt under the gas peddle.... and in one case passing cable fell off the carb.

My 97 GrandAm wont stay started. It feels like its not getting gas after it fires up. I changed my fuel filter and carb there is gas that comes out when the key is truned on it spilled on the ground

there is often a 2nd inline filter between the tank and engine, also there is a "sock" on the intake line in the tank itself that may be clogged with dirt. try running some fuel cleaner / fuel anti-freeze though first as that will often clear up the issue fairly cheaply.

good luck!

I have 1985 pickup w/305 the problem is the carb. it burns alot of fuel the carb has a mixture solenoid it wont pass emissions should i get a older carb like from the 70's or what is going on my uncle had...

your uncles olds probably has a 425 or a 455 engine in it. anyways, your carb, either 2 barrel or 4 barrel, is 24 years old and is in need of an rebuild. you call call around for an estimate or buy a carb already rebuilt and that should solve your problem. the older carbs will not have the same emissions fittings/hardware and would probably not pass an emissions test.

Not getting fuel to carb.already changed fuel pump and fuel pump relay will start by pouring gas in carb

If the car starts when you pour gas into the carb. The fuel pump is defective. Or the fuel filter is stopped up.
