Look into barrel while opening throttle to see if accelerator pump is pumping gas into barrel. If not, loosen fuel line at carb to see if there is fuel pressure when you crank. If not, pump diaphram may have failed.
If there is fuel coming in, it may be contaminated or just too old. You may need to empty the tank and put in fresh. If you do that, empty it all the way to the pump.
If you have more questions, let me know.

If you know where the fuel line comes into the carburator, disconnect it and try to crank to see if there is fuel coming out, could be the fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator or even the fuel pump itself, check the filter first. Good Luck.

1987 dodge raider 4 cylinder love the car ... but ... when driving in cold weather, like near 0F, the car slows down, and dies then restarts after 30 minutes or so suggestions ?


So she does. If it carbureted then check the choke, it electric or heat operated from the exhaust.
What happen whent it get cold. There the thermoal spring in the choke cools down make the butterfly on the coke close. install new electric coke or a kit for the manifold head coke control.

Has been in storage will crk. when fuel is poured down throat .has fuel press fuel is by passed to return gas line will only run when you pour gas in .


Depending on how long it has sat, the gas can turn to varnish and not be capable of 'lighting off' with spark-try draining the tank and fill with 5 gallons of fresh gas, charge the battery to full charge and try again.

My 1987 dodge raider is having problems starting. Sometimes it seems like the car does not have enough power from the battery. It has the 2.6 four cylinder and is also fitted with a carb. It has been...


Check your fuses. Make sure the battery is good and the battery terminals are clean and the wires have no tears. Make sure your engine is getting gas. Spray gas or engine starter in the carb. If it starts for a second, it is a fuel problem. Either fuel pump, fuel pump fuse or relay, or clogged fuel filter. If this all checks out, you need to start looking at spark plugs, wires, distributor, cap, rotor. Check your timing belt and make sure it is not broke. It could be a cam sensor or crank sensor as well.

Hey HotrodHarley,
I would pull out your hazzard switch and clean it real well. the signal, brake lights are connected to the hazzard switch and if it doesn't fully disengage you wont get the brake lights or the flashers to come on. It happened to me on my 89 Raider last year.
