Fuel filter in under your truck, drivers side, close to front door area, on frame rail inner side, if you don't have fuel pressure, more then likely, bad fuel pump.Hope this was very helpful.

I had the same issue with my truck when i was trying to get it running. all i did to make it run better and keep running, i replaced the fuel tank cause it had rust in it, the fuel pump was shot, and a new fuel filter. if your still having problems with it starting and staying on then its most likely your tank has rust or something clogging the lines

My 1991 mercury tracer will wind up when i try to start it but won't turn over, it's getting fuel but won't start unless i spray in starting fluid where the air filter hose goes in, plus won't run when...


Sounds like you have a weak fuel pump or a bad fuel pump relay which is a cheap test before you change the pump. You may be able to access the fuel pump through the floor under the rear seat so look at that first before you pull the fuel tank out of your car.

Cranks but wont start


Likely a fuel delivery problem.

Check the filter, as it may be clogged and due for replacement. To test for fuel delivery, open your airbox and spray some starter fluid (purified ether, usually) down into the throttle body while someone else cranks the engine. If it fires up and runs for a few seconds but won't run without spraying the starter fluid, then you know you've got spark and compression. If that's the case, there could be any number of potential issues: throttle position sensor (not very common, but it does happen), fuel injectors clogged (common if you use low-grade fuel), fuel filter/strainer clogged (filters should be replaced every 30k miles or so, on average), fuel pump failure (you should hear a buzzing from the fuel pump when you crank the engine).

If the starter fluid doesn't help, then the problem is no spark. Check each plug/cable for fouling.

I have a 1991 Nisson Pathfinder that will turn over but will not fire. If you spray starter fluid in air filter intake, it will fire just long enough to burn the starter fluid.Whats wrong?


Well you are replacing the normal fuel source, so obviously the engine is not getting fuel thru the injectors.
So, have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge ? Do you know for sure the pump is running ?

Sounds like the fuel pump is going bad...they can be very intermittent before they go out completely...unfortunately..the pump is inside the fuel take and requires much time to replace..also fuel pumps are expensive for these models...another(cheaper) thing may be the fuel filter is clogged up a bit starving the engine of the proper amount of fuel. Have you had the fuel injectors checked, the fuel pressure regulator checked...are you getting the proper fuel delivery pressure...have someone check these things too...

Sounds like the fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, or a stuck needle and seat in the carburator.

1991 chevy 350 urns over fast but wont start. then another time it will start


Sounds like a stubborn fuel pump. Try a squirt of starter fluid in the intake and see if it fires. If it fires change fuel filter first and try. If it doesn't work change pump.

Fuel pump may be getting weak. If pressure is not high enough the injectors wont open.
