    Just a check for you, check the oil, listen for the fuel pump, squirt some fuel into a cylinder or 2 to see if it will fire. Check the spark with the plug wired and resting on metal, check it out.

What turns on fuel pump and injection . I have power new pump new computer will fire on starting fluid


Hi Bill:
- If it fires on starter fluid you have spark.
- The fuel pump is turned on when you turn on the key. Check for fuel pressure.
- The injectors are triggered by the cps.
I'd suggest that you have codes checked as next step.

Have you checked the purple wire directly at the starter for power when the key is turned to start? Is the vehicle equipped with any type of remote start or alarm system?

Feul problem


Lots of things could cause a no-start, Hendrik. Is your "Check Engine" light on? If so, please have someone get the OBD error codes from the car's computer.

Does it crank but not fire?

If it doesn't crank, check the battery condition, battery connections, ground connections to frame and engine block, starter solenoid, starter motor.

If it cranks, doublecheck your fuel pump installation. Make sure the new fuel pump is properly connected and properly electrically grounded. Look for a fuel pump fuse. Check for proper fuel pressure at the fuel rail, check the fuel flow rate. Check for spark, check or replace spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor, plug wires. Check valve timing, replace timing belt or chain if necessary. Check compression.

It wont turn over battery OK what could be wrong? starter or fuel pump


If it will turn over, and not start, you are missing either fuel or spark...Those need to be checked. (No fuel doesn't automatically mean bad fuel pump, as injectors need to "fire" the fuel.)
If it won't turn over, or clicks, and your battery is good, it might be the starter motor.

'99 silverado will turn over but won't start. I have a new battery, 6 month old starter, new plugs, new distributor cap and rotary button. I used to be able to turn the ignition on and off real quick and...


I'd start with one of these and move on to the next.

Fuel
Spark.

Is it getting fuel? You should have an "in tank" electric fuel pump. When you turn the key halfway (just before turning the engine/starter over), you should hear the fuel pump prime. Easy way to check is to look in the throttle body while someone turns the key to the "on" position. You should see/smell the fuel. You can also listen to the gas tank while the key gets turned. You should hear the fuel pump run.

To check spark, pull a spark plug out, put it back on the plug wire and rest the electrode end of the plug up against the engine or exhaust manifold and have someone turn the engine over. You should see the spark plug firing. Don't hold the plug or wire while doing this. You'll get zapped if it's working ok.

If these both check out ok, then take a look at your firing order. If it's off by a significant amount, it may not fire. I've seen this happen when a cap/rotor/wires were changed and the wire/rotor was not positioned on the correct cylinder. (Most of the time they will at least fire or backfire, but either not stay running or run REALLY badly if the firing order is off.

Engine will Not Fire


Could be either...you can replace filter/regulator on top of tank sending unit and re-check. You can also try instesd of cranking on first try, just turn the key to run and leave it like that for a minute, then try it. If it starts, likely the fuel pump is draining back when off. If neither help, check to see if on initial start, you get a small puff of black smoke from tailpipe...if so, likely you have a leaking injector. (line pressure loss at engine end of the fuel system through injector) This is the "backyard diagnosis" Otherwise tests can be made using pressure gauge installed on fuel rail.

1994 GMC Sonoma 2.2L will not start after sarter install


Check the plug in for the crank sensor and the plugs on the ignition module and coil. All of these are real close to the starter. Also did you hook up any ground wires attached near the starter.

Not able to get it to start.


There is a fuel pump cutoff under the glove box on the exterior side, make sure it is not tripped and the fuel is being pumped. Two things you must have for a combustion engine is fire and fuel. I just installed a new V10 myself in my excursion and it runs great.
