i'm pretty sure you have a Central Port Injection setup on this engine. Which means the injectors are inside of the upper plenum and cannot be seen. This type of fuel injection system uses a centrally located electric fuel injector(s) which feed fuel to a mechanical poppet style injector which is routed directly above the intake valves for each cylinder.

The poppet valves require a minimum of 56 psi of fuel pressure. If you have 55 psi it will not start. It needs the fuel pressure to overcome the mechanical resistance of the poppet injectors. Fuel pressure should at least be 60 psi. It is very important to check fuel pressure with an accurate gauge.

If fuel pressure is low it will not start no matter what you do and a new fuel pump will likley fix the problem. Get a good quality pump such as an a/c deco or Dephi. Other brands may be cheaper but they will not last.

If fuel pressure checks out good let me know and I'll give you some more info.

To get the truck staret need to put gas on the carburator


Probably needs fuel pump. Try to start while someone raps the bottom of fuel tank with 2x4. If it starts, the pump is bad.

It sounds like the fuel pressure regulator is not working.Too much fuel pressure at low speeds, and at idle,not enougfh fuel return into the tank.This may flood the intake ports and too much injector cleaner may destroy the in line fuel filter it may not be filtering the fuel,just bypassing the filtering ,like no filter at all.

2001 MAZDA TRIBUTE COLD STARTING PROBLEM


My wifes car had this same problem at about 100000 miles and after many trips to the shop it turned out to be carbor build up in the intake manifold. A fuel injector cleaner was hooked up and it helped the problem, but did not completely solve it. In oreder to get it totally clean the intake had to be removed and clean it out manually.
