1986 Ford F150 got fuel got spark will not fire only fires with either but then quits

You can borrow a Noid tester for the fuel injectors or use a voltmeter. It sounds like you found fuel pressure at the fuel rail and assume you have fuel going into the engine. The starting fluid is getting into the engine so it is trying to run. What you need to do is find out if the injectors are opening.
The electric tests of a voltmeter or Noid tester check that.

Assuming the inertia switch is allowing fuel to the fuel rail, the injectors are controlled by the crankshaft position sensor or a cam sensor. If the injectors do not pulse with electric power then a signal is lost from a sensor or the Brain is not processing signals from the sensors.

Why will not the fuel injectors open on a 2002 Saturn l-100? The fuel rail has correct fuel pressure. The injectors will open when I give them a 12 volt supply in my shop.

Fuel problems

First start with the basics check fuses relating to fuel and or injectors make sure there is voltage next look into your crank sensor usually if it fails the computer doesn't know you are trying to start the vehicle because the signal the sensor is supposed to give out to the computer is not there due to a faulty sensor once the computer senses the signal from the crank sensor then the computer will send a command to the injectors to start pulsating gas let me know how this turns out for you.

Jaguar xj sport 3.2 no spark or injector pulse

If ECU has crank signal and engine turns over, ECU should give injectors a pulse and trigger the ignition. If not ECU might be bad. You should check power and grounds going to ECU. There are usually multiple power and grounds going into ECU

My 1993 GMC Sierra Z71 will not start. We changed the fuel pump, the throttle pressure regulator, fuel filter,and fuel pump relay. The pump gets gas to the injectors but from there it does nothing and goes...

Hi, that's possible but first check the ECM fuse and use a test light to check for power to the injectors on the red and white wires. The computer uses a number of sensor inputs to calculate the injector signals required. If these signals are not available, the computer cannot send the appropriate injection metering signal and will usually set the engine light. Is the engine light on?

The fuel injectors aren't opening. we have power to them and the crankshaft sensor and camshft sensor have been replaced. What tells the injectors to open? fuel pump is putting out 40psi at the fuel rail.

the computer gives the injector a signal to open and close check the plug to a injector 1 wire should have 12 volts all the time with key on and 1 should pulse a ground on and off when the engine is cranking over

Kia has fuel from pump to the injectors but won't run, I put fuel in intake ,motor will run till fuel is gone. Help

most times is the camshaft position sensor he is the one that gives the signal to the ecu so it knows when the intake valve is going to open so it fires the injectors, look for the sensor and check the connector or inspect too see if its doing its work ( signal to the ecu)

Fuel injectors

There is a module to control the injector valve o and off. If it doesn't give a signal to turn on the injectors then injector is not working. The electrical connector from your injector is where the signal from the module going in.

No fuel to injectors....

Your injectors are controlled by electrical pulse. Even having fuel pumping to the injectors, if they are not opened, fuel is not sprayed into the cylinders for combustion.
You can find NOID at any auto part store to hook up to the connectors of the plug going into the Injector plugs ( like attache image) to check if there is signal from Injector module control or not.

1-When you crank the engine, the NOID will flash indicating you have signal, but your injector is bad. This is a problem.Need to check every one.
2- If NOID is not flashing then you don't have signal from Injector Control module. This is a problem. Good luck in finding.4b5c5a7.jpg

No signal to injectors, need to know what gives the signal

if voltage is on both sides of the injector your computer is bad if only on one side try a crankshaft position sensor its very common with these cars.
