If you are smelling fuel, there may be a good posiblility of a fuel leak. This must be checked first for safety of you and your car. The fuel system runs by a high pressure fuel pump. If there is a fuel leak and the pressure is not building in the system, the engine will not start.

1996 jeep wont stay started and oil pressure gauge goes up and down


hot or cold engine , or both.?
the oil pressure will be in direct ratio to engine rpm. slow low, fast high
due to the oil pump connection to engine crankshaft.

stalls.: can be caused by 50 things, or just 4 in physics.
the EGR valve (if you have one, no engine stated)
can stick open and stall any engine, and in fact LOVES to. clean it.
1: list 12vdc to EFI. (spark and fuel brain) dash lights dim?
2: lost compression hot, ? compression tests.
3: lost spark, do spark tests. and timing, checks.
4: bad fueling, too much if floods, and misfires and stalls.
too little fuel, it starves and dies.

the 1 free test, is can you save the stall with a fast right foot.

we do the tests. avoiding those 50 guesses....
each tests are simple and the tools dirt cheap .

This morning my car would start then immediately die after a second or two. even when i gave it gas it would just rev up and die. it did like that for a while, now even when we try to start it, it wont do...


It sounds an awful lot like it's not getting fuel. I would guess a clogged fuel line or fuel filter. Use a fuel pressure gauge to check the pressure in the fuel bar.

2000 kia sephia cranks but engine wont run


The fuel pump may have died. Can you hear it turn on briefly, by turning the key to "on"? You may have to stand by the gas tank while someone turns the key to on. It should turn on for about 2 seconds and then stop, after pressurizing the fuel system. If you don't hear it, then check the fuel pump fuse. If the fuse is good, and the pump won't run, one needs to check that the fuel pump wire at the tank connector has battery voltage on it when the engine is cranking-then, you can assume the pump needs replacing.
If the pump is working and you have gas up to the engine, you would next check the ignition system. Start that by checking for spark on one of the spark plug wires.

01 ford expedition. its hard to star all the time, i can run only if i hit the gas pedal if idont the engene is gonna die but once the idle kick that means its good


may be low fuel pressure at start up. Try this, turn key to ON and wait 5 seconds for fuel pump to stop humming. Then try starting. If it starts up faster, you have a bad check valve in the fuel pump, change it. It's in the fuel tank.

Slim chance it could be the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail with the injectors. very seldom fails.

Finally, your cold fast idle circuit is not wokring right. Clean passages.

Engine died as I came to stop off hiway on off ramp, tried to start and engine would not turn over. Acted like it was flooded. left to get help and found oil cap off under hood latch area when I returned....


pumping the petal will not flood engine. Can u smell gas while trying to turn it over? can u pull a spark plug and smell fuel on it. You also do need to make sure you are getting fuel to the fuel rail first can u hear the pump come on when you turn key in the on position second with key on engine off see if fuel comes out of the port at the fuel rail careful contents under pressure.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Died while driving home


check the fuel pump fuse/relay, could be just bad enough to cause an intermittent start/no start. and check fuel pressure,spark and the crank position sensor.

i can tell you its not the fuel pump.if you smell fuel then the pump is working right,you may have a weak crankshaft sensor though which would keep it from starting and running. but its definately not the fuel pump maybe you have water in your gas
