Probably a stuck gas pump, listen for the wirr of the pump for a few seconds when the ignition is first on, give the tank a clout (it os plastic so you wont break it)

The remaining fuel left sitting in the injectors has turned to varnish plugging up the nozzles inside them
best to remove them and spray carb cleaner into them

Best than to speculate is to remove and check the plugs for signs of fuel and the intensity of the spark.
If there is low spark check on the coils , the contacts till you establish a good spark.
The presence of fuel on the cylinder is good enough to establish that the fuel seciion is fine . If not check this out, clean and set.
Once both the above issues arre ruled out , replace the plug and start. It must work for sure unless there is a timing issue.Check this out.Before the plugs are replaced crank to remove all excess fuel due to overflow if any.

The old gas will cause hard starting for sure as it is 15 years old but if you don't have very much in the tank you can mix in some new gas.

make sure you have new gas in the tank and then start the car with the accelerator all the way to the floor until it starts..dont pump it, just keep it all the way to the floor until it starts and then let off on it... if the system has been empty it may take a few times

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram hemi 1500 4x4. would not start.


I suspect the gas tank has some crud on the bottom that gets sucked in when level is very low and/or truck is parked on an incline.Suggest installing in-line fuel filter, let gas level get nearly empty and then check in-line filter. If there's junk in the filter, tank needs to be cleaned. Or just keep the tank a quarter full until it can be cleaned.

It sounds like you may have picked up some small debris from the bottom of the gas tank when you ran it empty. You may need to run a fuel/injector cleaning solution through the next tank of gas to clear the debris and consider changing your fuel filter too. Sea Foam is a great fuel additive and I recomment trying it full strength. Hope this helps!

Hello,I have 1994 ford taurus that turns over but won't start.It has been sitting for a year. Also when I turn on the key a computer box under the hood,mounted just above the radiator buzzes. Please give...


They're shouldnt be any computers near the radiator. Your coputer would be mounted inside the car or on then fender/firwall (away from heat). Make sure the battery is fully charged and that the distributar cap/rotor are not corroded. Also make sure the gas hasn't gone bad (get water in it after sitting). Put some water remover in the tank and try to ad fresh gas if your not able to drain the tank. You could also have bad/clogged injectors after sitting but highly doubtful if it ran fine a year ago. Check the easy things I mentioned first. Spray som starting fluid in the throttle body while holding the throttle wide open when starting (need 2 people for this) see if it tries to fire, if it does try you are not getting gas or not good gas. Out the water remover in first and as much new/fresh gas as possible.

Truck doesnt start


dip your tank with a wire. if quarter tank indeed fuelpump or safety valve not opening in supply under hood. Check connection. Valve is on all modern cars for fire hazard. Check the valve by takening it out and testing it. Could be wire harnes problem also. Or filter blocked.
