Engine dies immediately after starting


Very limited information for me to work with here, but if it is a newer fuel injected engine built prior to 2000 the try the procedure below.
Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2000 and down)
You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

97 ford ranger 4cyl starts and immediately dies. Has some fuel pressure, but haven't put a pressure gauge on it


If it dies immediately when you remove the starting fluid the issue has to be with fuel delivery.

Stalls? when stopped for short periods of time


your fuel pump could be getting weak, check the fuel pressure. The throttle body or fuel injectors could need to be cleaned, try using injector cleaner in the fuel tank there it a cleaner you can spray into the throttle body a little at a time, use i higher or slightly raised idle. Make sure the air cleaner and air box are clean, animals love to build a nest in air boxes. also make sure the fuel injector wires have not been chewed on, look at all the wires closely.

Car will start sometimes other times i will have to continue to crank the engine it cranks everytime


As it cranks, is there white or black exhaust smoke ?? If yes, the fuel injectors have solid build up on the tips. Normally, a quart bottle of injector cleaner treats 20 gallons. Pour 5 to 7 quarts of fuel injector cleaner. With cold engine (been parked for at least an hour or overnight), while cranking engine, have 2nd person spray starting fluid into air filter. DO NOT PRESS ON GAS PEDAL !!! Let the starting fluid do its job of starting the car. Starting fluid is highly combustible, so its important you don't give any gas while its cranking and 2nd person is spraying into air filter. When engine starts, stop spraying starting fluid and give a little gas. If engine begins to die, immediately spray a little starting fluid again. When engine begins to run, let it run a few minutes to let fuel injector cleaner to do its job (loosen solid carbon build up on tips of fuel injectors).

My 1991 olds mobile cutlass calais wont start,after I added fuel injector cleaner because,the car was having hesistating problems below 25 miles an hour and it might of been a spark plug problem or fuel...


When you chaged the air filter & sprayed Gumout carb cleaner, you got rid of a little gunk in the
air intake, but when you added the fuel injector cleaner (its the same stuff as carburator cleaner) to the fuel tank, you "cleaned out" ALL the ****/gunk/buildup/dirt in the fuel system which has built up since 1991 and sent it straight to the fuel filter, which is now clogged. The reason that the car tries to start, but fails, is that it'll successfully burn up any fuel that gets past the clogged fuel filter, but the engine consumes that small amount of gasoline quickly, then dies.
Your solution: change the fuel filter.
The fuel filter is located:
Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line

Hi, can you tell if the fuel pump is coming on? If you don't hear it, check the relay in the engine compartment relay box. Try swapping it with the horn relay to see if the pump will come on. Not sure which relay box you have so I included both below.
If the fuel pump is coming on fine, then check to see if the injectors are clicking. Put a long screwdriver against one of the injectors and hold the handle to your ear while someone cranks the engine. If the injectors are working, you should hear clicking. If there is no clicking, please get back to me for additional troubleshooting steps of the camshaft position sensor. Also, please tell me if the engine light was on when the car was running.

93 jetta will not stay running even though it has gas in it


I would bet that your fuel line is either clogged with dirt or you fuel pump is not working. Pull the air cleaner or cover off of the injector. Then try to start the car. If you don't get anything then try a small amount of gas into the injector. Try starting immediately. If it starts then dies it's one of the two. If the engine continues to run it is most likely your fuel injector or a slight chance it is a fuse. VW's are great cars but they can be tempermental. Have you googled your car year and make for recalls or simlar issues with other owners? Good Luck
