Why the fuel system? I would bet a ignition issue as it takes the most punishment. A bad coil pack would be my first bet. At any rate rent a OBD code reader from an auto store an check codes. It should tell you where your issue is. Beyond spark, Crank position sensor may be an issue as it doesnt send a CEL signal.

I have a 2004 Daytona 600. It's been sitting for several years. I changed the battery, oil, gas, and spark plugs but it still won't start. Engine turns but don't know of it's not getting gas or fuel.


You should hear the pump in the gas tank turn on for 2 seconds when you turn the key to on, not start. A buzz or hum from the tank area? If yes, the pump is supposed to put enough pressure in the line to the engine and the injectors for the car to start. Maybe not enough pressure if it won't start. Change the fuel filter and try again. If no help, maybe a weak, tired pump. You will need the fuel pressure checked to compare to specs for your model . Autozone and others rent or loan fuel pressure testers.

If no noise from the pump, check the fuel pump fuse, under the hood in the power distribution center or fuse/relay box. In that same place is the fuel pump relay. Locate the pump relay from a diagram on the fuse/relay cover. Hold your finger lightly on this pump relay while someone cycles the ignition key from off to on. If the pump circuit is working right, you should feel the relay click. That should send power to the fuel pump to turn it on for that 2 second period. If you feel it click and the fuse is good, possibly the pump or the pump's ground wire is faulty. If you don't feel the relay click with key turned to on, the fuel pump circuit will have to be diagnosed. Good luck with your project. Let me know how you progress.

1999 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE NOW LEAKING GaS AT TOP OF GAS TANK AFTER A FUEL PUMP BEING PUT IN


If it's the CAT you should be able to notice this while driving as driving with blocked or broken CAT usually feels lack your lacking a little power, like the car is slower than normal, also if you hold your foot on the accelerator at the same place you may notice what almost feels like air bubbles in the fuel line kinda feel, little jerks as your driving along as if the car does not like being sat at set revs, cars with the CAT on it's way out usually like to either be accelerating or decelerating not sitting at the same revs as you get that jerky feeling, thats one way to tell... If it is blocked up it can stall by blocking the air coming out of the exhaust, the other issue maybe the backbox on the exhaust could need replacing, similar symptoms as i mentioned before as it's all in the same pipe doing similar thing to the air. My garage once drilled a hole into the backbox and it was like magic and the car felt like new again!! which loads more power, the back box needed replacing of course along with the cat.
Aside from the above could it just be your tick over is set too low? just an idea... You will usually be able to tell if it's the cat from driving it, you will notice a difference in the cars performance, it will feel very restricted when you put your foot down like the old cars with the distributors on them when the timing was out, it feels like that! hope that might help a little but im not a certifed mechanic!

My jeep is driving fine, but it starts very hard in the morning - I have spent so far almost $2,000 in various parts at the dealership, but the problem is still there. Any suggestions?


If you would share with us all that was done , it may help us to diagnose the problem more efficiently.

I spend $2000 at the dealership , doesnt help much.

My first gut feeling is going to be a fuel pressure leak... overnight the fuel pressure could leak down... and cause the engine to starve for fuel durring morning start up.

You can check this by doing the following next time you do your morning start up proceedure.

Turn the key on , but do not attempt start the vehicle yet.
turn the key back off.
turn the key on... until you hear the fuel pump pressure has built again.
turn the key off. and then back on ... and after the pump stops... try to start it.

Cranks with plenty of energy, but car will not start


Check all of your fuses first. Make sure your car is getting gas to the engine. Try to listen for your fuel pump to kick on. When you turn the key, you should hear a buzzing sound for a second or two. If you don't hear it, that may be your proplem. When this happens, you will be driving and it just goes dead, at any speed. You can spray engine starter into your carberator too, then try to start it. If it starts for a second, it is fuel related. Honestly, it could be many things and these are the easiest ways to check. If the fuel checks out, it could be your igntion system. This is sparks plugs or coils, wires, rotor, cap, ect. Check the simple stuff first and let me know if it worked. Feel free to write back. I know how you feel right now and I will help you in any way I can.

Sometimes when I try to start the truck, it won't turn over the first time, then the second time it will start fine, can't idle for too long; engine will shut off on it's own. When driving about 10 to 15...


Sounds like you have a fuel pump failing or a clogged fuel line from a dirty filter. I would bring it to a garage and have the fuel system pressure checked. This will asnwer questions about weather or not this is the problem.
