Check the 20 amp fuel pump fuse. If that is good, find the fuel pump relay (probably in the engine compartment relay box) and swap it with another relay (maybe the horn relay would be good). If that doesn't work, see if you can find the inertia switch (check your owner's manual) to make sure it hasn't tripped. The last thing to check is the signal from the computer. You would need to probe the fuel pump relay socket to see if all the right voltages are there. See my post at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check to see how to do that. Let me know if you have questions.

98 Honda crv want crank had tune up done two weeks later it want crank was running good.


Make sure battery has a full charge. Cranking is starter motor action, meaning the starter motor is cranking the engine. If the starter motor won't crank the engine, then we need to test starter motor wiring circuits.
If it cranks good, but, won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs, where applicable. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and also, check for fuel injector pulse, engine cranking.
Can you check for applicable trouble codes?
I can only make suggestions, you have to do the testing. I give the same info to guys and gals, I don't know how to do it any other way.

How do you bleed a diesel pump jeep Cherokee turbo diesel 3.1 5 cylinder 2001


we dont have this engine here, USA.
but i have the WG jeep book,
starting page 12 , chapter 14


FUEL INJECTION PUMP BLEEDING
(1) If the fuel injection pump has been replaced,
air should be bled at the overflow valve before
attempting to start engine.
(a) Loosen the overflow valve (Fig. 18) at the
rear of the injection pump.
(b) Place a towel below the valve.
WARNING: WHEN CRANKING THE ENGINE TO
BLEED AIR FROM THE INJECTION PUMP, THE
ENGINE MAY START. PLACE THE TRANSMISSION
IN NEUTRAL OR PARK AND SET PARKING BRAKE
BEFORE ENGAGING THE STARTER MOTOR.
CAUTION: Do not engage the starter motor for
more than 30 seconds at a time. Allow 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(2) Crank the engine for 30 seconds at a time to
allow air trapped in the injection pump to vent out
the fuel injector drain tubes. Continue this procedure
until the engine starts. Observe the previous WARNING
and CAUTION.
(3) Tighten overflow valve.
HIGH-PRESSURE FUEL LINE BLEEDING
WARNING: THE INJECTION PUMP SUPPLIES HIGH-
-PRESSURE FUEL OF APPROXIMATELY 45,000 KPA
(6,526 PSI) TO EACH INDIVIDUAL INJECTOR
THROUGH THE HIGH-PRESSURE LINES. FUEL
UNDER THIS AMOUNT OF PRESSURE CAN PENETRATE
THE SKIN AND CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY.
WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES AND ADEQUATE PROTECTIVE
CLOTHING AND AVOID CONTACT WITH
FUEL SPRAY WHEN BLEEDING HIGH-PRESSURE
FUEL LINES.
WARNING: DO NOT BLEED AIR FROM THE FUEL
SYSTEM OF A HOT ENGINE. DO NOT ALLOW FUEL
TO SPRAY ONTO THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD WHEN
BLEEDING AIR FROM THE FUEL SYSTEM.
Bleed air from one injector at time.
(1) Loosen the high-pressure fuel line fitting at
the injector (Fig. 19).
(2) Crank the engine until all air has been bled
from the line. Do not operate the starter motor
for longer than 30 seconds. Wait 2 minutes
between cranking intervals.
(3) Start the engine and bleed one injector at a
time until the engine runs smoothly.

or tank filter line priming before. above.

Engine cranks but won t start


engine cranks but won't run may be caused by either fuel delivery or ignition issue. are you sure when you had the motor rebuilt that the shop put the cam and crank on correct engine timing?

Motor as no fuel


which engine?
post the symptoms, please.
my guess, it wont start?
or stalls?
and spark is 100% good (tests)
and now you suspect fueling system loss?
fuel is last check.
after good engine, good spark and if good , try test fuel (spray)
if motor starts for 3second test fuel, then you have lost fueling
we then do the fuel pressure checks in the FSM , every step, (6)
we check pressure cranking, many engines must crank to get fuel..

HARD TO START


To clarify, the engine cranks and starts. If it cranks but won't start until 4 or 5 tries, I would check the fuel pressure before and after the first attempt. The check valve in the pump may be faulty and allowing the fuel to flow back to the tank when it is not running. The pump only gets power for the first 3 seconds during crank time until the engine starts.

When the temp out side gets up to 80-90 degrees my car want crank


The first thing you need to do is verify that your battery and charging system is in good operaing condition. I have seen sulfated batteries that would have enough power to turn the starter motor, but not enough power to operate the computer engine control system while the starter was cranking.If that is OK, then I would recommend scanning your onboard computer system for fault codes, then diagnose and repair accordingly.

The engine turns over but the motor will not start. The van was running fine when it was cut off. It doesn't seem to be getting gas.


It's very likely your fuel pump has failed. Have somebody thump on the fuel tank while you're cranking the engine and see if it starts. If it does, replace the fuel pump. Otherwise get your fuel pressure checked, and check for spark. If no spark, check to make sure the distributor is turning(if applicable) If a 3.3 motor with no spark, suspect the crank sensor or cam sensor. Crank sensor is much easier to replace if experimenting.

Nate, I'm not sure what you mean when you say,"I can get it to whine but not turn over. The starter is trying to get it to turn, but I don't think it is getting any gas".

Separate and aprt from not getting any gas is the fact( if I understande you correctly) that the motor is not being cranked by the starter motor. You say "it whines". You are referring to the starter motor, right? the starter motor should not "whine". If this is what's happening by guess is the Bendix spring in the starter motor is broken. The bendix spring is a heavy spring that is mounter on s worm gear in the starter motor. When you go to start the motor by turning the key the starter motor turn and the spring travels down this worm gear and engages tthe geared flywheel and cranks the engine. As soon as the engine starts the flywheel is now turning the bendix spring faster that the starter motor and the spring kicks back to its original position. If the spring is broken it never engages the flywheel and the engine wont crank.
The fact that you say the starter "whines" is what I would expect you to hear if the starter is at fault.

As far as no fuel flow there are 2 ifs: if you have an electric fuel pump, then there is a problem in the fuel flow. If you do not have a electric pump then the fuel pump runs off of the engines motion and since the engine is not cranking, the pump is not pumping and the fuel is not flowing.

Anything else you can add before we conclude that the starter has to come off?
