HI, There are a few things that can cause this. You maybe getting fuel to the filter but is there enough volume and pressure needed to start the vech. You need to also determine if you are getting spark. The 2 main causes of no starts for these cars was the CKP (crankshaft position sensor) and the Ignition module. Neither one is a fun to get at they are on the back of the engine towards the firewall. good luck

95 GT mustang wont start


You ran the car out gas and there's air in the system.. Not the Throttle Body.. Expel the air from the system.. 1. Raise/Support your hood.. 2. Turn your key to the ign position, (listen for the fuel pump to come on).. 3. Go to the fuel rail(s) and press the Schrader Valve, (looks like a tire air valve), until only fuel comes out.. (use safety gear, especially for eyes) 4. Rinse/Collect excess fuel before cranking (careful around electrical connections)

My truck sat up for probably 3 or 4 years cranked and run fine yesterday but today it wont crank at all any ideas?


If it won't crank over, it's not a fuel issue, but a starting circuit issue. The gas may be stale, but if tank was full all that time, I don't think that would be a problem.
Pull off the small wire on the starter solenoid, and see if it has power when key is held in crank position. If power there, the starter or solenoid or the battery connections from battery to starter need to be checked or tested. If no power to solenoid when key is in cranking position, the ignition switch may be bad or the neutral safety switch (or the clutch start switch if a manual) or the starter relay needs to be checked.
If you get it cranking, and still no start, look down the throttle body bore and watch your injector spray pattern while the engine is cranking-you should see a fine, cone spray pattern coming from the bottom of the injector. If it just drips and no cone pattern, or no gas coming out, injectors need cleaning (probably from stale gas). Good luck.

Have a 1992 chevy tahoe, husband had the fuel pump replaced in the gas tank, it ran pretty good for 3 days, now it wont get gas into the throttle body. if he dumps fuel down the throttle body it will run...


It may still be the fuel pump I have seen many aftermarket pumps fail within days, even hours. Check the fuel pressure it should be around 60 psi. if not its prob the pump but don't overlook the relay.

1998 chevy tahoe 4x4 wont start. not getting fuel to throttle body. its not a fuel pump relay i tried it. it will start if i pour gas in the throttle body


fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. When you turn the key do you hear fuel pump run? If not odds are the pump is bad.

Plenty of gas in tank, but Neon will not stay running after it's cranked. It only keeps running if I keep pumping the gas pedal. Engine will not idle. Is it the fuel line or filter? No prior problems....


Many things can cause this. There was a recall on throttle bodies from 1998-2000,maybe yours fits in there. Go by VIN not date on door. Check the fuel pressure,you need special equipment for this. If all else fails,you probably need a t.p.s.(throttle position sensor). Might need to replace the entire throttle body to get the sensor.

1991 eldorado wont start


So you put gas down the throttle body and it won't start. Sounds to me like you either have NO SPARK or your plugs are already fuel fouled. Even with you supplying the fuel. it still wont start. FYI, the FUEL FILTER is located by the R/R wheel, and the FUEL PUMP is located IN the fuel tank. Hope this helps

No gas to manifold,car will start adding gas to throttle body


yes gas should be coming out of the fuel line at the motor. if not the pump is bad. you will need to drop the tank to get to it as it is in the tank
