Car will start sometimes other times i will have to continue to crank the engine it cranks everytime


As it cranks, is there white or black exhaust smoke ?? If yes, the fuel injectors have solid build up on the tips. Normally, a quart bottle of injector cleaner treats 20 gallons. Pour 5 to 7 quarts of fuel injector cleaner. With cold engine (been parked for at least an hour or overnight), while cranking engine, have 2nd person spray starting fluid into air filter. DO NOT PRESS ON GAS PEDAL !!! Let the starting fluid do its job of starting the car. Starting fluid is highly combustible, so its important you don't give any gas while its cranking and 2nd person is spraying into air filter. When engine starts, stop spraying starting fluid and give a little gas. If engine begins to die, immediately spray a little starting fluid again. When engine begins to run, let it run a few minutes to let fuel injector cleaner to do its job (loosen solid carbon build up on tips of fuel injectors).

How to starting fluid air intake carburator


Not a great idea if you haven't done this before. You can start a fire, or even ruin your engine. However, in general, remove the air cleaner and spray starter fluid into carb (or throttle body) about one second (one Mississippi) and try to start. If it starts and continues to run, rock on. If it runs a few seconds and dies, you have ither issue and are not getting fuel delivery. Seek help!

I have a 250cc Loncin Atv motor that will not run I have compression getting gas and has spark what could be the problem ???


turn off your fuel supply, remove the air cleaner, spray a shot of brake cleaner, or starting fluid into the carburetor air intake, then try to start it. If it fires you have a fuel problem, (not enough, or flooding) if you can't get it to fire, it's a spark problem.

Wont start unless I spray starting fluid into air cleaner. run great after that but if you turn it off you have to use starting fluid again . have put new wires plugs rotor cap distb. capand K&N...


A poor spray pattern in the injectors can cause starting issues. Have you tried a good (read not really cheap) fuel injector cleaner like Chevron Techron or Valvoline Synpower fuel system cleaner? A weak ignition system (worn spark plugs, leaking wires) can cause starting issues. You mentioned that it has a K&N filter on it. These filters use an oil in a cotton media to filter out dirt. Sometimes that oil can get out of the filter and contaminate the mass air-flow sensor. Follow the air tube after the filter box and you'll find a sensor in the tube with several wires running from it. It is made from aluminum and the wire housing is plastic. Remove it from the tube and clean it with a mass air-flow sensor cleaner. You HAVE to use a mass air-flow sensor cleaner specifically made for mass air sensors. Don't use anything else like carb, brake, or throttle body cleaner. Those cleaners will leave a residue on the sensor and just cause you more issues.

As for your fuel pressure, the system pressure with the key on, engine off is 60-66 psi. Do you really think you could visually tell the difference between 60 psi and 40 psi? I know I couldn't. You'll have to use a fuel pressure gauge to verify the pressure. For my money, I think your pressure is low. But, cleaning the MAF is much easier then putting a tester in, and it wouldn't hurt, so I would do that first.

Stalled on road, turns over but won't start.


you will need two people to test to see if you have a bad fuel pump. you will need a can of aerosol throttle body cleaner. open up the air filter casing and and make sure u do not squit any fluid on the MAF air flow sensor the bottle of cleaner sometimes has a red straw for further reach use this straw. the other person has to crank the engine and once the enine begins to turn over start squirting the fluid into the engine via the air filter tube. have plenty of trigger control becuse too much fluid might cause a back fire (so you might want to wear a clean glove) and too little fluid wont start the engine. if you get the enine to run for a brief second while squirting the chemical chances are that the fule pump is bad or the fuel filter is clogged. hope this helps

I was driving and my 96 Dodge Dakota stopped running. It would not start and I just filled the gas tank about 10 minutes earlier.


Sounds like your fuel pump went bad. Get a can of starting fluid. Have someone help. One person to start the car and one to spray the starting fluid into the air cleaner or air pickup tube. Do this for about 60 seconds. If the car starts your fuel pump is bad.

1991 Geo Tracker only starts with starting fluid.


Check fuel filter on both vehicles...After that check fuel pressure ...Blocking off air flow to engine will change the fuel air mixture...air deprivation changes (lessens) air flow and fools engine into reading more fuel than is actually there. Mass air flow sensor should also be checked/cleaned if no results obtained by filter change if pressure is OK.
