Please check the following:

- Fuel injector's connectors and wiring.
- Ignition coil's connectors and wiring.
- Vacuum hoses and pipes.
- PCV Valve.
- Spark plugs for any cracks on the insulators.
- Spark plugs gaps.
- Fuel pump pressure.
- Engine Coolant Temperature sensor.

Won't start


If it's backfiring through the intake, then more than likely it's a timing issue. The distributor cap has the cylinder numbers molded into it where the plug wires go... Make sure the wires are in the right spots. If that's good, then it's possible the distributor isn't lined up right.

My 1992 Isuzu 2.6 fuel injection, won't idle when cold and when I press the gas peddle it backfires and won't accelerate above 1500Rpm


have exhaust back pressure tested. maybe the catalytic converter is restricted/ almost plugged. Also check your vacuum hoses for leaks.

Dear Fixya, My 1993 excel hyundai turns over but won't start, we put plugs and wires and new fuel gasket. we r wondering where the fuel pump is, is there one or two pumps and how to get to them to fix...


Have you checked for spark first? Sometimes a car won't start due to no spark. This condition is usually caused by: Security system, bad ignition module, crankshaft sensor, camshaft sensor. You check it by pulling a plug wire and putting a screwdriver in the wire to see if it arcs. If it is getting fire look for the fuel pressure release valve usually located on the fuel rail, looks like a tire valve stem. If it shoots out gas, and you hear the fuel pump prime, check the fuel pressure regulator. It could also be the timing. There are four things needed for a car to start: fuel, spark, timing, compression. As for your question, as far as I know there is one fuel pump, you have to drop the tank to fix it. Hope this helps.

could it be your throttle sensor? If it is a carbureted engine, check the accelerator pump inside the carb.
