If it will turn over but not start it is a problem of either not having spark or not getting enough fuel. To check the fuel problem. Have someone turn the key to the on position without starting the car and then lay next to the gas tank and see if you can hear a motor going on the inside of the gas tank if so than the fuel pump is okay also make sure that the spark plugs are still in good condition and have the correct gapping. Make sure to also check the distributor cap and rotor. These will usually wear out and will cause none of the spark plugs to have any spark. if all else has failed. check the fuel filter as this might be plugged.

Not firing


How is your fuel pressure after the fuel pump replacement? (requires adapters and a gauge.) You also can use "test fuel" (like starting fluid) to help determine if the problem is fuel or ignition. Just be careful as the stuff is explosive. For more in depth trouble shooting you might want to visit a Suzuki forum. (Your Tracker is a rebadged Suzuki Sidekick.)

93 geo tracker will turn over but wont start unless you pour gas in intake then will continue to run until you kill it. will not start back unless you pour more gas in intake.


Sounds like something is letting the fuel pressure bleed off after the motor is turned off. Can you monitor the pressure? (Requires adapters and gauge.) Trouble shooting will be a little different between the 8 valve or 16 valve motors. (The fuel injecton systems are different.) You might want to go to a Suzuki Forum.

1990 jeep yj 4.2 straight 6 carburated will turn over but will not start


First try shooting some starting fluid in intake manifold, and if fires up but still won't keep running, my guess next would be your looking and checking out your fuel pump. You can check that out my removing a line and see if fuel is pumping out of the out put of fuel pump. Because it it carburated its pretty easy to trouble shoot. It's going to be in most cases spark plugs , fuel pump.
