Starting 2640 john deere tractor deisel


engine wont start ??? yes you can try start fluid , but etreeme care needs to be taken using this on diesels as the fluid can act as a fuel (of course it can!!) and the engine can run away till its fluid supply burns off (too late!) use it in small doses !! me I use kerosene or my fav is paint thinner ,its a bunch safer and wont destroy the engine like st fluid can , if it sputters on st fluid and still wont stay running , then you have an injector/pump/supply problem , if it wont do anything at all when u crank it over then you have a pistion/valve/head problem

Do you smell gasoline fuel ?? When there's too much fuel, it saturates the spark plugs, preventing ignition. Let it sit for an hour to let spark plugs dry, then it starts OK later. Next time, turn starter without giving any throttle or very small throttle as engine turns. Myself, when my 2006 Dodge Plymouth minivan (sitting in storage) needs to start, I squirt (half second) starting fluid into air filter, close the air filter housing to trap flammable gas from starting fluid, then turn the engine without pressing on throttle. When the engine starts is when I give it a little throttle to bring up the RPM to 2,000 until it idles on its own without stalling from cold engine.

2004 Chevy Van 2500 turns over but wont start


Try spraying starting fluid into the intake. Remove the air filter to do this. If it starts for a few seconds then you have a fuel delivery problem. If it does not, then you have an electrical problem with the ignition. there are 3 things needed for an engine to run if it turns over. Air, Gas, Spark (fire). No air filter solved the easy air issue. Add starting fluid answers the fuel issue. Only leaves spark after that.

My dodge stratus wont start it will turn over but wont start


Listen for the fuel pump when you first turn on the key to the run position. If you hear it then spray a small amount of starting fluid in air intake while someone tries to start it if the engine fires then most likely a Crank Position Sensor. The CPS controls your injectors.

1989 ford f350 diesel 7.3 will start with starting fluid but wont stay running


Never, ever use starting fluid in your diesel.

Taken from the Owners Manual - Diesel Supplement:

Do not crank the engine for more than 30 seconds at a time as starter
damage may occur. If the engine fails to start, turn the key to OFF and
wait 30 seconds before trying again.
Do not use starting fluid such as ether in the air intake system (see Air
Cleaner Decal). Such fluid could cause immediate explosive damage to
the engine and possible personal injury.
Do not add gasoline, gasohol or alcohol to diesel fuel. This practice
creates a serious fire hazard and causes engine performance problems.
1. Make sure all vehicle occupants have buckled their safety belts. For
more information on safety belts and their proper usage, refer to Seating
and safety restraints chapter in the owner guide.

How can i fix a clogged fuel pump on a 2001 chevy malibu. the fuel pump is working ( you can hear it hum when you turn the key) I removed my back set to make sure and the car will turn over but wont start....


Have you changed the fuel filter? Did it die while driving, or just wouldn't start? Don't use starting fluid on a gas engine! It will cause a lot more problems than it solves. Ether, starting fluid is made for diesel engines... not gas, not ever. If it won't start, it isn't lacking ether. It's lacking gas, air or spark.

88 190E has been sitting for over a year, wont start. Have cleaned out the fuel, still wont start. An amituir mechanic said it needed a fuel pump and or a fuel relay. (Very costly) Any advice? The car ran...


When a vehicle has been left for a long time without being started it will need the following: New fuel, New battery, change of engine oil, possibly transmission oil and brake fluid as well. All fluids in the engine will tend to settle and separate out over time if left. Ideally you start the engine weekly if you put a car aside.
