93 toyota pickup 4x4 it will stay running after I turn it on to start it up, it starts up then after a few seconds it kills


if I'm reading this right...
... the engine starts and dies within a few seconds.
... you jumpered the fuel pump test connector and it will keep running.
... you smell fuel after trying to re-start when it dies.

Disconnect the plug to the cold start injector. Even if you have an issue with the engine running then dying after a few seconds after doing this, if you don't smell fuel after disconnecting the cold start injector and try to restart it, the cold start time injector time switch may be failing.

Buy a can of starting fluid and have someone start the engine then spray short bursts of the fluid around all the intake fittings. If spraying the fluid in any particular area keeps the engine running, I'd start looking for leaks around that area.


It does sound like an AFM or COR issue considering it dies after a few seconds, but the fuel smell when trying to restart the engine may be a separate issue that needs corrected / isolated first.it will keep running.

Vw golf turns over but wont start but willl with starter fluid and when it starts runs for a second but stops


Check fuel pump relay by replacing it with another one from the Power distribution assembly. Make sure that you use one with the same number on it. This sounds so petty, but is there gas in the car? You'd be amazed how easy that some of these are to fix. Next in line is the fuel pump itself. Standing outside the car with an assistant in the driver seat, have them just turn the key to the run position. Did you hear a small motor run for just a second. Good. That's the pump pressurizing the lines and injectors. Don't hear it? You did check that fuel pump fuse already, right? Then, there's the possibility that the pump has failed.

By boeinga1 on Nov 17, 2010 2001 VW Diesel Golf TDI. Car started no problem. Drove to gas station. Stopped for gas. glow plug light wouldn't come on, engine wouldn't start, engine turning but not starting....


i think glow plug replacement needed. ever used starting fluid in cold to start?try this, next time no start, cycle your key and let the light come on, wait till it goes off, turn key again until light goes off, if you have to do this more than 3 times, and it runs fine, replace the glow plugs only then. thank you for choosing fixya.com!

My 2001 ford ranger is hard to start turn the key for 5 seconds let off turn again and starts right up let it sit for 15 to 29 min and hard to start again changed injectors plugs and coil pack runs better...


sounds like fuel pressure bleeding off. Bad fuel pump or bad pressure regulator on fuel rail. Can you hear pump run for 5 seconds when you turn key on? do this twice, 30 deconds apart and see if it starts ok.

Ran out of diesel on a 96 vw transporter van, what do I do, I've put deisel in the tank now what?


Need to change the fuel filter first, you may pulled some debris from the fuel tank. After replacing the filter you must prime the system to get it to start. Have a strong battery as you may have to crank a while to get the air out of the system. You can get the air out bt loosening a couple of the injector lines at the injector, crank engine untill fuel comes from the lines, continue to crank engine till it starts to run, will run rought untill you tighten the lines and let it run for a few seconds,. sounds more complicayed than it really is. Let me know if this helped

Vw golf diesel very sluggish after 3000 rpm


I would start with changing the fuel filter, with the tow truck that work on every day, I service them every two weeks, and the fuel filters come back full of grim the deisel fuel filters have to get changed more often with the fuel going around, try and stay away from pride gas stations, they have caused 8,000 in repairs to my trucks.

VW Golf MK3 wont start


fuel relay could be faulty. i think its number 30 or 167 in the fuse box under the driver side steering. it could also be the fuel pump or connector on the fuel pump under the black metal plate under your trunk carpet. you could try manually throwing in fuel into the intake to make sure its not your car's ecu or ignition system. if it starts and stays running it could be what took me a few months to discover after i had intermittent problems. there a small vacuum hose from the fifth injector on a 1997 mk3 gti (4 cylinder) that connects to the injector rail. i think its some kind of activation for the electronic injectors. my pipe was broken and i just cut it and my car hasnt been better since! i know this is an old question but i hope it helps someone out there!
