The petcock is vacuum operated, there should be a small hose just behind the larger fuel hose thats attached to the petcock. What it does is when the bike is cranking over it sends vacuum though this hose and operates a diaphram in the petcock causing fuel to be released in the fuel line. This is for people that don't turn the fuel off as far as I know. Anyway if you take the small line off and get another piece that fits there and turn the petcock on and **** on the small hose it should send fuel out the bigger fuel hose if it works correctly.

Hope this helps

My 1988 k5 blazer has not been cranked in 2 years I'm trying to get it cranked t only crank with starting fluid fuel pump has a spot in back cut out when ignition is on I can't hear it what's wrong


if starting on fluid and no hum from pump usually points to bad fuel pump ---check fuses ,relays ,wires and connections sitting that long can let rust debris,critters cause problems with equipment---also check fuel filter possible clogged /lacquered up by old gas

Fuel filter bad, won't start?


Hi Zac first thing i would check is fuel pressure. remove fuel hose to fuel rail hold hose into container get some one to crank motor only for a few seconds and turn ignition off..if no fuel ! suspect; fuel pump . also listen for fuel pump to hum when turning ignition on it should make some noise! hope this gives you something to check. as a mechanic i have come across this as a problem before.

89 Jaguar xj6 won't turn over.


First thing I would do is charge up the battery, and check base fuel pressure with a gauge. Using starting fluid is going to be tough - its the large black hose in front of the master cylinder which is tough to get to.
If it cranks over fast enough, and has fuel pressure and spark, it should start without any help.

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

4.0 S TYPE CRANKS WON'T START


The first thing i would check would be the fuel pressure, the gas being sold now a days eats away at the fuel pump and makes varnish build up in pump causing the pump to go bad.

A fuel pressure gauge is needed for this test, it connects to the fuel rail and give you a reading and i would bet there is no or very very low pressure.

1991 bonyville 3.8 starts and runs good, After it is driven for 20-30 minutes then will crank overe and aver but will not fire up. Leave hood open for 30 minutes and it starts right back up I have replaced...


Whe it won't start check to see if you have spark from one of the ignition wires. Typically when the crank sensor goes bad the car will stall as you are driving. If you have spark but the car will not start than the crank sensor is fine, Find the fuel pressure regulator located on the passenger side of the fuel rail. There will be a vacuum hose attached to the top. Remove the vacuum hose. Try to start the car. If fuel comes out of the pressure regulator where the hose was attached than the regulator is bad. If there is no fuel coming out of the regulator and you have spark try this. Turn the key to the run position, do not try to start, count to three. Turn the key off and then right back to the run position and count to three again. Do this 3 to five times. Then try to start. If it start right up you have a fuel issue and possibly the check valve at the fuel pump has gone bad. Good luck, let me know what you find.

GMC 2000 sierra pick up 1500 sounds like it wants to start but won't turn over. Battery sounds good so I guess battery and alternator are ok. For several years fuel gauge doesn't work and...


It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.
