This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/

Gas smell. Gas line is rusted through. Look for it all the way back. Since it runs a bit with fuel in the throttle

A vehicle that old will suffer from brittle and cracked vacuum lines. I would say there is a bad, or several bad lines leaking away vacuum from the intake manifold. Don't forget to check the hose going to the PCV on the valve cover. A vacuum leak will also cause the engine to stumble and miss intermittently when idling.

SOURCE: My problem is my 1990 GMC Sierra was running then

You need to do a fuel pressure test on it. You also need to test the injectors w/a noid light to see if you have pulse to the injectors.

SOURCE: 1992 vortec v6 motor getting spark and strong fuel

the probem is probably in the injector assembly whichis under the intake plenum.after removing it you will se the plastic tubes and ijector popit valves unlike actual individual injectors.this whole contraption must be replaced as an assembly.you can get repair manuals from this site or go to you library.it may actually be flooding as these had problems with leaking fuel pressure regulators which i think are also only part of the whole assembly.

It turns but it wont start,it has gas and power


Pull off the coil ignition cable at the distributor and check for spark coming out of coil when cranking engine over. Use a heavy rag or glove to hold the wire 1/4 inch from a metal ground. Should see a strong blue spark when cranking to verify ignition is good. If no spark, check for battery voltage to coil on the coil primary. If you have current to the coil, suspect a bad coil, ignition module, crank position sensor, or cam position sensor, or pcm. The coil, ignition module, and sensors can be tested before replacing.

Wont start


I understand you replaced the relay but not the pump, right ?
Has the fuel filter been replaced recently ? Are you sure there is gas in the tank ?
You should be able to jumper the pump relay and check fuel pressure.

Wont start


is the your car engine cranking when you try to start, first check spark plugs ignition coils, remove one ignition coil and spark plug fix the spark plug in to the ignition coil then connect ignition coil to wiring and keep spark plug body touching on ground of engine head mettle parts, ask some one to crank engine then you can see is the plug sparking or not, do the same way to all the coils and plug otherwise you have to buy a ignition spark tester, is the all the coils and spark plugs are OK then check the fuel pump, it's sitting in under rear seat, before that do one thing disconnect oxygen (O2) sensor wiring and crank engine, the thing is if your oxygen sensor completely dead fuel pump will stop working, if engine start after disconnect O2 sensor, replace new O2 sensor, otherwise need to check fuel pump relay fuse and fuel pump. is this information helped you? please vote me and give a comment.

Cranks wont start, 98 Durango


check to see if getting fuel or if you smell gas when cranking if you smell gas you probably have a spark problem which will probably be a coil and or a pickup coil in your distributor replace coil and then distributor. If you are not getting gas most likely fuel pump in tank see if it will fire on starting fluid then replace fuel pump good luck

My 91 mitsubishi gto wont start and strong smell of fuel


Start by making sure you have spark to the spark plugs. If not you may have a problem with the plug wires or coil. It's also possible you're not getting gas to the engine possibly from a faulty fuel pump.
If you change the fuel pump be sure to replace the fuel filter also.

Astro van wont start


Did you check for spark? Is it getting gas at the fuel rail? If there is no spark then it could possibly be the crank position sensor, ignition module or coils but the coils do not all go bad at the same time.
