2005 DODGE CARAVAN STALLS OUT AFTER YOU FILL IT UP WITH GAS


When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

1999 E-430. Why does it periodically fail to start?


Does it try to start, but not catch? That sounds like a fuel pump going bad if you press the gas pedal twice and it starts. You should not have to press the gas pedal in an e430 to get it to start up.

Hard starting when cold. 30 sec to min crank. Runs good after start.


Hi Thomas:
Sounds like it's not getting fuel right away.
I'd be checking the choke, and also perhaps try priming by pushing gas pedal all the way down twice, spin over 2 or 3 seconds, then pump gas pedal twice again, then try to start.
None of this is valid if it is a diesel.

1988 22r pickup have to pump the gas now before starting 15 to 20 times. i didnt use to have to pump the gas before every start if it sits more than 10 hours it wont start unless i start pumping the gas...


Seems like the choke is not turning on. The 22r uses a carb if I'm not mistaken. pump it a couple of times then try pressing the pedal completely down before trying to start it. Then press the pedal half way down. the point is to set the choke when you press the pedal all the way down.

We changed the fuel pump out because the car stopped running we checked it out and it was bad, the new one works and we have fuel to the out port of the filter but it will not start .we have spark but...


Not sure about this, but you might want to find your fuel "reset" button for the fuel pump. It's usually located in the trunk.

You say that it's getting fuel to AND from the filter (?); there might not be enough pressure to get to the injectors.

Try turning the key on for a about 5 seconds, but don't try to start it. This actuates the fuel pump.. Do no pump the gas pedal. Turn the key off, then try to start it.

If it doesnt start, turn the key on but don't try to start it. Pump the gas pedal 2-3 times, then try to start. You usually should not pump the pedal, but in this case it might just need a little "kicker" to get gas through the line.

If it doesn't start repeat this procedure. Hopefully it starts.

Note: Never crank a car over for more than 4-5 seconds. It's hard on the starter and will wear your battery down really fast.

There is a gas smell on our 92 voyager. The leak appears to be from the tank. Now it won't start and battery is drained. Why won't it start?


I had a leaky gas hose at the rear of the tank near the top. The rubber had just finally worn out. Once the leak is fixed and gas added back to the car, it will take several tries to start it because of air and the fuel pump has to get gas pumped back up. Recharge the battery, turn key over and listen for pump to kick in. Pump the pedal once, then try to start it. Don't over pump the gas pedal or you will flood the motor.
