Wont start sometimes, only when i pour gas into the intake manifold. and then cant keep it started. only stays running by lightly tapping the accelerator


it sounds like there is no fuel getting to intake.
when you step down on accelerator, it is designed to squirt a shot of fuel into the intake, which would keep it running for a few seconds. same as pouring gas down intake.

you never stated if you had carburation or injection system, in either case no fuel is getting through on its own.
which could be a variety of problems depending on which system you had.

1968 mustang 302 standard 2 bbl carb will turn over and sound like it wants to stay running but will not.


Remove the air cleaner and carefully pour small amounts of gas down the carburetor. Have a fire extinguisher near by. If the motor keeps running then the engine is not getting fuel. Check the fuel pump & gas filter.

Year make and model ? The injectors will open with zero pressure.
They use a magnetic valve. You should have voltage on one side and ground on the other when they are working.

The gas is not going into the intake but has good gas presuer


-Check the fuel filter inside the carburator and the cut off fuel plunger inside the carburator. It might be stuck in or lose from it floating arm.
That's why it doesn't let fuel flow to the caburator recevoir.

My 2000 Jimmy won't start, I can hear the fuel pump running and then shutting off before I attempt to start the engine. I also hear it running while I attemp to start the engine. The engine won't start...


The pump is working normally the reason it stops before you start the engine is it has built up enough preasure and cuts out. When you turn over the engine it starts up again as the preasure goes down when the carburator open's. The pump only helps the fuel from the tank. It seem's like dirt in your carburator. The reason it wont start after 3 minutes is the excess petrol in the carburator has evaporated hence need to pour more in. Check all pipes filters and carburator for dirt.
