Change fuel filter and fuel lines that are leaking. Starting needs fuel pressure.

When I start the car it cranks right up but I have to ride the gas till it warms to normal operational temp it will run fine, if I just start it up and try to drive it cold it will not stay running?


Without knowing the make/model/year/engine of your car, about all we can do is guess. Things that can cause this include:
temperature sensor
ignition wiring
vacuum leaks

Have a 2005 f150 4.6 that stalls can it be the fuel pump is weak


Could be a fuel pressure regulator not working. Thus ecu complaining about fuel Pressure. probably not enough because the regulator is worn and leaking down so will not maintain the proper pressure. You will need to google the make model and fuel pressure regulator to find it's location or library and repair manual. Otherwise, you need to measure the pressure and find the spec for the required fuel pressure. Probably somewhere around 120PSI

Gas no pumping , car does crank


if this is a fuel injection system its possible that the fuel pump has seized when you last turn off the motor.the brushes and comutator in the pump wear out and sometimes they will work fine then the next time you go to start it they seize and won`t start.

Sometime car barely starts runs rough till rpm's build up


Check everywhere for air leaks. If it has a carburettor start the car and spray butane gas around it, if the revs increase then you have a leak somewhere as it is sucking in this extra fuel.

2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start


If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

Does it crank?If you shut it off and you restart after a few minutes and it cranks but won't start or starts and runs rough the injectors are leaking and flooding the engine. Need better description

1989 K1500 was running fine and just quit. Not getting gas but I can hear the fuel pump start when I turn the key on. took fuel line off of TBI and seem to have plenty of gas flow but nothing comes out of...


you need to have the fuel pressure checked with a gage and volume as if its not at the spec the injectors won`t open to spray enough fuel.also you should check the injectors for proper voltages and ground as if these are not within specs then the injectors won`t work either

Have 307 86 gas in oil some pinging not really knocking or ticking. possibly diaphragm on gas pump allowing this through crank case or what should i do


there are only so many ways for gas to get into the oil.one someone purposely pured gas into the crankcase.two the engine is running very rich and not able to burn the excess gas,three the fuel pump is leaking gas into the crankcase,four the oil has not been changed regularly and the gas has thinned out to the point that it cannot seal the engine from the gas that normally is burned in the combustion chamber.If maintenance is regularly performed that fixes #4,I doubt that anyone would pour gas into the crankcase especially at the price of gas that fixes #1,if the carburetor is working as it was designed to then that eliminates running rich and fixes #2.if the above is good then the only thing left the fuel pump, can leak fuel into the crankcase and they won`t make noise necessarily.as far as the slight pinging one of two things can cause this, the engine is running slightly lean and or the timing is too advanced and needs to be reset to specs
