Absolutely. if you pour gas in the carb, and it runs, then dies, you have a fuel delivery issue. if u put a new fuel filter on , and then let it sit for a year, it can still be a problem. fuel gums up and clogs up stuff, so it could be the jets on the carb are clogged, the fuel bowl is clogged with gummy fuel, the fuel lines could have a clog, or it could be a bad fuel pump. but if your like me and you forget to drain fuel and then dont drive the car for a year, you have something clogged up with bad gas and it needs to be cleaned / rebuilt.

I have a 1994 Cadillac Fleetwood, How do I determine if the fuel pump is bad or the fuel pump relay?


Replace the relay as they are fairly inexpensive and if that doesn't solve the problem the pump located in the gas tank may need to be replaced. I'm assuming you have first changed the fuel filter. Also if there's water in the fuel add some Heet fuel additive to disperse the water and also add some fuel injection cleaner to the tank as it can't hurt.

Car not getting fuel


If it is a 1980 Caddy it either has a carburetor or throttle-body fuel injection( V864, if it's fuel injected you might need a new fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator ) and you can remove the aircleaner lid and pour a little gas down the carb (hold the choke plate open with a screw driver placed between choke plate and carb air horn) or throttle-body. It might take a few tries before the fuel pump fills the float bowl up on the carb for it to keep running. If the cars has really old stale gas in the tank you might need to drain it and refill with fresh gas. Change the fuel filter and add a can of fuel injector-carb cleaner to the gas tank.

Car donot start. my mechanic say it is not injecting gas.what is the problem?


Good Day,

There could several causes for this problem. Obviously the injectors aren't getting fuel, so the first thing to check is the fuel pump. If the fuel pump isn't working it won't send any fuel from the tank to the motor. Another possibilty is a dirty or clogged fuel filter, again if this is bad it will not allow fuel into the motor. And of course it could also be dirty or clogged fuel injector nozzle's, this can be treated with fuel injector cleaner poured into the tank.

I hope this helps.
