I have a 1996 Plymouth Breeze it had ran out of gas I had to make 3 trips to the gas station to put $6.00 in the tank it still won't turnover is there a reset button I can push to reset my fuel pump or is...


It is shot. Hit the bottom of the tank. It will jar the pump and will start or not. Either way replace the pump. Running older cars out of gas usually kills the pump.

I ran over a big rock in the road. It went under car and hit undercarriage. The car engine stopped and would not restart like it was't getting gas.


trace your fuel line from your carb back to fuel tank, sounds like you have a severed fuel line. in either primary or return. it will start on starting fluid but won't continue to run without fuel.

My 2001 ford taurus does not start, it acts like it is running out of gas.


Turn on key and have someone listen by back of car for fuel pump running it will only run for 5 or 10 sec with each turn of the key. Not running check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay. Take another relay out from another spot and swap them to see if it works

1987 Ecoline van V-8 engine hasn't been started in about 7 years. It ran good before that. What do I have to do first to start it and get it running?


I would change all the fluids and either try dry gas or i would recommend that the gas tank be thoroughly drained and new gas put in the tank.If you have a hard time getting started try to use starter fluid in carburetor or if you have none just use gas. If the vehicle is equipped with fuel injectors locate air filter and follow air duct to engine that is where starter fluid or gasoline will have to be pored to prime the injectors.if it don't start the engine should be tuned up with a major tune up replace all filters ect even if it starts without tune up i would tune it up asap!

My 2000 Honda Odyssey EX has intermittent start problems. At least once a week it will not start without being jumped with a portable jumping system; sometimes turning the key to ignition for about 30...


Probably when the dealer is testing it is fine because the problem is intermittent. There may be a dead spot in the starter so when it hits that spot it acts up but other times its not on that spot its fine. Replace your starter and you will probably get rid of the problem.

My 1997 chevy tahoe will not start without starting fluid. I hear the fuel pump running and have changed the fuel pressure regulator already and the fuel filter. The pump is only a year old. Have checked...


IVE HAD PLENTY OF THESE GO OUT EVEN A MONTH LATER. AS FAR AS THE STARTING FLUID JUST TRY AND CYCLE KEY BUT KEEP IT FROM TURNING STATER OVER. TURN ON AND OFF ABOUT 3 TO 5 TIMES IT SHOULD BUILD ENOUGH PRESSURE TO START. TO START MINIMUN PRESS IS 55PSI.

Stalls when under load "driving"


Check the ignition module. My car would run fine until it came up to full temp and then run bad. I continued driving the car while trying to diagnose the problem. It got worse and then one day the car stalled as if it ran out of gas (still had plenty in the tank). I was able to coast it into a parking spot and called for a ride. Upon returning, I tried to start it, started right up and ran fine. On the way home it started acting up again (once it was up to temp). It turned out to be the ignition module.

2002 chevy Blazer hard starting did change fuel pressure regulator and fuel filter when we spray starting fluid in throttle body it will start.


replace the fuel injectors, that is the likely cause......

to test the injector, take the power clip off the top of the injector, take one wire and ground it to the body of the car, and another form the battery, to the other post on the injector, if you do not hear a pulsing sound coming from the injector it is bad, if you do, then you have a wiring problem.
