A very good indication that the fuel pump has gone bad.Possibly not providing enough fuel pressure to start up.

    Usually what I have experienced with a fuel pressure regulator going bad is lack of power under acceleration,slow start,rough idle but haven't really seen it cause a no start condition. If the vacuum is disconnected from the regulator pressure tends to rise approximately 10psi. Can you hear the fuel pump running?Should be a buzzing noise at the gas tank if not try hitting the bottom of the gas tank and see if it will start then.

    If it runs on alternative fuel without a doubt it is a fuel delivery problem.

Corsa starting problems


Get a can of spray starting fluid from a local parts store or hardware store, then when it won't start spray the fluid into the air intake of the engine, if it starts and dies you have a fuel problem, if it doesn't start then you need to verify that no fault codes are present in the memory of the engine control module.

Turns over but won't fire


If a starter is able to crank the engine but it won't start you usually have either an electrical or fuel problem. It's also remotely possibly that it's compression.If an engine has proper fuel, spark and compression, it will start when you crank it. So your challange is to find out which part isn't working right. Start with fuel. Spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while someone tries to start the engine. If it starts briefly when you're spraying starting fluid, you probably have a fuel delivery problem. That could be injectors, fuel pump, fuel filter, relay, fuse... who knows what until you check into it.If it doesn't start with starting fluid, check the spark. Pull a plug wire and attach it to a spare sparkplug and set the plug on a solid metal part of the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch the plug. If you have a good spark, it might just be out of timing.In any case, you'll need to start isolating the problem. Find out which part isn't working then you'll know what to replace/repair.

Have a 2001 jaguar vanden plas. It won't start. It cranks fine battery is good but it won't turn over. I have been told could be fuel filter and or fuel pump. If you agree how do i change


To confirm that is is the fuel pump at issue here get a can of spray starting fluid and next time it won't fire up spray it into the air intake hose of the engine while someone cranks the engine over, if it lights right off then the pump may be the problem. A clogged fuel filter may cause loss of power but seldom if ever a no start.

98 mercury sable runs fine but when you turn it off it may not start. let it set for a while it might start and run for some time until you shut it off and same thing happens will not start


The likely cause of this is a defective electric fuel pump, to verify buy a can of spray starting fluid at the parts store, next time it won't start remove the air hose to the engine and spray the starting fluid in, if it starts you will need to replace the fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, about a 3 hour job to replace.

Car has gas but won't start. Sprayed starter


the most likely reason is a failed fuel pump, plugged fuel filter or defective fuel regulator-you need to have the fuel line pressure tested-you can get the use (free) of a guage set from most commercial auto parts stores.

2000 Grand Am has been sitting idle for 6 months. Will not start. New battery. Fluids may have settled. Ideas on getting it started?


Try spraying starting fluid into the throttle body, You can also check for fuel at the pressure connector at the fuel rail, looks kinda like a tire valve stem.
