Remove the fuel line from engine crank car to see if fuel is being pumped from the tank through the filter and lines. I use wd40 to see if there is a fuel problem as it does knock the engine. More then likely it is the pump is not pumping the correct psi and needs replaced. Hope this helps tim

You have a fuel starvation problem, fuel pump, pressure regulator, injectors, any or all of them could be the reason why you are not getting fuel. Someone is going to have to lay hands and eyes on the thing and check it out.

Since it started with starting fluid, you have a fuel problem. This could be due to a failed fuel pump. When you turn your key to On, listen for your fuel pump. If you open the gas lid you can hear the fuel pump while someone turns the key to On. It should come on and pressurize the system. Once the fuel pressure has built up the pump cuts off. It is also possible that your fuel filter is clogged, your timing belt has failed, your crankshaft position sensor or camshaft position sensor have failed. If you have a Check Engine Light, get it scanned. This will help determine the problem.

Spray some starting fluid into engine intake air duct while crankingengine over. If it tries to start good possiblity fuel pump is bad. (In fuel tank). However if it does not problem lies somewhere other than fuel system

I have a 94 honda civic and its not turning on. All the actual power cuts on but that's all. Is it my fuel pump??


It could be. Check to see if it turns on. Let it rest for a few minutes. Turn your key on but dont try to start it. When you turn the key, you chould hear a humming sound for a second or two. You can also spray gas or starter fluid in your intake. Try to start it right after. If it starts and dies, it is probably your fuel pump. If it kicks on, let me know. We can try some more things. I hope this helps. It sucks to be broke down.

Having problems in the morning starting and now it wont start at all not getting fuel up to the injectors when i spray starter fluid it starts until fluid burns off


Sounds like fuel pump issue. Do you hear the buzzing sound when you turn the key on, it should go for about 2 seconds,( which is the fuel pump priming the system with fuel)? Replace the fuel filter as well when you replace the pump, if it is the pump.

Won't start. turning, but won't fire.


If you think its fuel, spray some starter fluid inthe throttle body. If it fires up, you have a fuel problem, otherwise, check your spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor. Also, check your fuses.

1995 buick lesabre limited, cranks but wont start...what should i do?


May be fuel related or ignition related:

Fuel: Obtain a can of "starting fluid" from an auto supply store. Spray directly into air intake for two seconds. If car "kicks" and trieds to start, then the problem is fuel-related. If you spray more, then it may start.
Could be: Fuel filter or fuel pump.

Ignition: Remove a sparkplug cable and lay it down on a metal part of the engine. Have someone crank the starter while you look for a spark from the cable end to the engine. If no spark, it could be several things:
distributor rotor, distributor cracked and/or wet on the inside, ignition coil.
