Spray carb spray or starter fluid into intake hose then try to start. If starts then suspect fuel pump and or fuel pump relay. If does not start check spark. Pull off spark plug wire and ground to metal make sure no fuel is present and be careful not to spark yourself, crank car while grounding out wire if no spark suspect coil, fuse, ignition control module, crank sensor, wiring, or computer.

I have a 95 Chevy 1500 truck 4by 4 and I can't get it to start I tried everything it seems like it wants to start but nothing what could it be


well if it won't start it won't start...because your engine has lost 1 of 3 things that make it run: gas, spark, and compression. Don't tie yourself into knots over what it could be. Do the basics first. 1.Check that the engine is getting gas into the cylinders.
2.Check that the spark plugs in the cylinders are getting ignition current to make blue snapping sparks when tested.
3.If you have both spark and gas to all cylinders, you should do a compression test of the cylinders to know there is enough compression in the cylinders to make it run. Without good compression readings from all cylinders, no amount of money thrown at it will make the engine run better, you have to do mechanical repairs to the engine that restores compression first.

Most times, sudden no starts are gas or spark related. Check those first. Happy Holidays.

You most likely burnt your fuel pump out. you cam run a hot wire to the pump and see if it runs correctly. your not building enough pressure.

Gas tank problem


the first ting to check is the vent hose. spiders make web nests in the hose which restricts preasure release, and will make check engine light come on.

you HAVE a gas leak, the best way for this problem is to use your senses of smell and sight.
Look for gas leaking at the same time smell for the strong smell of gas and locate the area.
