Why won't it start?


Check fuel pump fuse, if fuse is good, most likely a bad fuel pump vor clogged fuel filter. Without knowing the make and model hard to say where each is located. Fuel pump is most likely in gas tank unless its an older vehicle.

85 HONDA ACCORD WONT STAY RUNNING UNLESS PUMPING GAS NOT EVEN FULL THROTLE


You have a single fuel injector in it right. Try right at the end of the gas pedal cable at the engine there is an electrical plug and a little device that goes around in a circle when the gas is mashed. That is the throttle position sensor. Try unplugging that and if there is no difference in the revving then the throttle position sensor is out. If that is not the problem, then plug your engine into a an onboard diagnostic reader. 85 is an obd1.

Why wont my car start in the mornings?


Sounds like you are loosing fuel pressure overnight. Could be a fuel pump problem, or a leaking injector.

Car not starting in morning


It sounds as though you are imitating a cold start injector by pouring fuel into intake. I would start there

1983 s10 blazer low rough idle and trys to die when starting have to give it a little gas and put it into drive real quick then when slowing down keep foot on gas pedal as i also slow down with break pedal


Could be several things, a vac leak, dirty throttle body, or faulty idle air control valve.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the throttle body thru the valve.
Usually a vac leak would speed up the engine unless it is causing the rough idle.

My 1985 grand Marquis won't start I can pour gas


Take the gas filter off. Should be located near the front of the carbeurator, take off the air cleaner and look for it, it takes 2 wrenches to take it off, a little gas may spill out but not much and replace it, however there is a strong possibility that he gas pump is out if the filter is fine. Hope this helps

Did i answer you before? Anyway, try cleaning the throttle body with a little carb spray on a cloth shop towel wraped on a screwdriver.With the engine off,remove the tube to the t-body,hold the throttle alittle, and spray a couple of squirts inside.Spray some to wet the towel, and pushing it in and out gently of the t-body.becareful not to bend the plate inside or leave any towel inside.look at it with a flashlight to see if it's clean. Hope this helps
