My three wheeler doesn't stay running when it starts. What could be the problem besides the fuel line . just added a fuel filter on it but she still won't start or stay running at times. Co


The damage is already done before you put the fuel filter in. (dirt in Carb)
Remove your carb and dissesemble it and clean everything out and then put back on the machine with FRESH gas and you will be fine...run like a top !

Check for spark in order to see if the engine's ignition system is working.
Add starting fluid to the intake to see if it starts for a few seconds.
If the car does start, then it's a fuel delivery problem such as a fuel pump or a computer that doesn't allow fuel injectors to pulse.

If it doesn't start, then the spark is likely not being delivered to the spark plugs.
One can double check this by using a spark tester for the spark plug boot removed from the spark plug and grounded to the chassis.

The engine crank but it wont start, when we are traveling the vehicle lose its power. we check the fuel pump and it dose not work, still wont start


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. I am assuming the fuel pump works. If it doesn't, check the pump, fuses, and relay. Check your fuel pump button if you have one. This vehicle is new so you may have an electrical issue. Is the check engine light on? If so, you need to have the computer scanned. Many things can cause the engine to not start. If could be fuel related. Check your fuel pressure to make sure it is normal. If it is not, check your fuel filter, lines, and injectors. It may be the ignition system, such as plugs/coils, wires, distributor, coil packs, distributor cap. You need fuel, fire, and air to start the car. I don't know how many miles you have, but if it is up there, you need to check the plugs, coils, ect. I need to know miles, if your check engine light is on. It could be the starter, starter solenoid, or ignition module. Post back so I can help you. Thanks.

My 98 Taurus seems to be running out of gas then just dies. Have to have the battery jumped to get restarted. Its fine for awhile then does the same thing a few weeks later. Battery and alternator have...


The most likely cause is your fuel filter. You can check the fuel pressure and by opening up the fuel line under the hood and using a fuel pressure. Or you can just replace the fuel filter.

You will first need to depressurize your fuel line. Open your hood and look in the fuse box near your battery for the fuel pump relay. Remove that relay and turn on engine til it dies.

Now you can replace the fuel filter. Wear goggle. The fuel filter is located underneath the car near the back passenger wheel about 1 inch inside. It will be cylinrical looking with an arrow and connected to fuel lines at both ends. Unclip the clips from the fuel lines and unclamp the fuel filter from the body of the car. You can use a screwdriver to remove the clips. Don't damage the fuel lines in the process. Now wiggle or turn the fuel filter out and replace with new one with arrows in the same direction. Thanks for using Fixya.

Audi 100s 1993 cranks doesn,t start, turns over no start. when it starts runs rough and stalls.


could very well be a faulty sensor, leaky vaccum hose, bad coil packs, needing of new fuel filter, spark plugs, wires.

Have you checked your fuel pressure to make sure it is good. You can do this with fuel pressure tester on the fuel rail.

Also check every cylinder for spark
If you don't have any spark, or very weak spark, you could have bad coil pack, module, or crank sensor.

You can remove one plug at a time, and place it back on plug wire, place it on top of engine block, have someone else turn motor over well you observe to see if there is spark.

Do you have a service or check engine light on? If so, I would have the engine codes read to pinpoint exact problem area.

Let me know if you have any questions or need further help
