First you must have spark or it wouldnt start with starting fluid.Second did you check the fuse and the relay that power the fuel pump? If not check that first then see if you have power to the plug by the fuel tank for two seconds when you turn the the key on,you will need help for this part.That will tell you if you need a fuel pump or not

1985 stanza will only run with starting fluid


if it only starts with starter fluid sprayed into the air intake . with air filter removed Sounds like fuel starvation, check your fuel pump is pumping and fuel filter is not blocked.

ISO definitive eng compartment pic/diag/schematic of fuel line & line-pressure valve/access, bleed disconnects + alt intake spots 4 starting fluid, beyond air filter intake.


to remove contaminated fuel , pull a fuel line of the fuel manifold and run the pump for a few seconds
not firing is sensor , immobilizer , ignition module problem but you stat that it fires on starter fluid so that cannot be right
starter fluid is a d good way of damaging the engine
a better way is to find and fix the fault
now to try and sort out what you are saying
it is cranking so the starter is good
it tries to run on starter fluid so there is spark to the plugs
it will not run and that indicates a lack of fuel to the injectors
a lack of fuel indicates
1--- a bad fuel pump
2--a vacuum in ht e fuel system from the tank not venting properly(EVAP system)
3--- fuel pressure regulator not working and providing pressure to the injectors
4--- bad injectors --- need cleaning
dump the starter fluid , buy a workshop manual and fix the problem properly

1991 F150 Will not crank.


Do real fuel pressure test using test gauge. You changed ignition module but not coil? Are you getting nice fat blue spark? When spraying starter fluid into intake it only tries to start which makes me think you have ignition problem.

95 blazer fuel prob's.


It drops when it is turned off through the return the pump might be getting weak If you keep using the starting fluid you will blow the intake off of it or it will get hooked on it and won't start without it.

I'm helping a friend to get his 02 Ford Explorer going after sitting for about 6 months, put in new battery and checked fluids then tried starting. it would crank over but not fire up,tried numerous times...


You need fuel, air, and spark to start it. Make sure the engine is getting fuel. Make sure the pump is working. Fuel goes from the pump to the filter, through the lines, to the engine. If the engine is getting gas, you need to check for spark. This concerns the spark plugs/coils, wires, distributor, coil pack, dist.cap, rotor, cam sensor, crank sensor, timing belt, ecm. It is a lot of things but anyone of them can make the car not start. That is why it is important to do a fuel check and a spark check. If it gets fuel, that cancels out fuel. Same for the ignition system, where you get the spark. If you have any questions, just let me know.

'94 S 10 Blazer V6 Vortec EFI. Fuel pressure good, new fuel injectors installed, fuel pump works ok. Only starts with starter fluid sprayed into air intake. Any Suggestions?


your statement is fuel pump work ok, have you tested for proper fuel pressure. just because the fuel pump works it could have less pressure needed to start the engine. maybe the fuel filter is plugged. start out by replacing the fuel filter, if this doesn't fix it, you need to pressure test the pump. even 10 psi reduction in pressure will allow the engine not to start.
