Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

My 1995 Siverado 1500 4x4 wont start. It hasn't run in 2 yrs. I put new fuel, fuel filter, cleaned the lines and took the carb apart and cleaned it. New battery. It'll start with a bit of gas in the carb, but dies shortly after. There is gas getting from the line to the carb, but not sure if its getting through the injectors. Not sure what to try next.

Don't here the fuel pump go on when i turn the key on on already checked fuses..been sitting for almost 2 yrs...when stopped everything running good.. got new battery for it but didn't here fuel p.


Hi Baltazar:
Have you tried to start it?
It wouldn't hurt to give it a SMALL prime. Remove the air filter and put a thimble or 2 (NO MORE) into the carb ant then try to start it. Sometimes they just need a bit of encouragement.
After sitting for 2 years the gas in the carb, fuel fump, and tank may have gelled, so there is a possibility that you will have some cleaning and flushing to do.
Work patiently, and stay safe.

I got a 2000 ford focus that cranks but don't starts, fuel pressure is good, good spark but spark plugs are pretty worn out can that cause it to do that?


You only need three things to start an engine.
1) Clean Fuel / Air
2) Compression
3) Spark

One of these is not working correctly. The fuel pressure is good, but the fuel line, fuel filter, injectors, or carb may be dirty or clogged. If the gas has been sitting for a long time, or could have water in it, there is potential for the gas to be gummed up, and it wont ignite. Start with clean, new gas, line, filter, and if it still wont start, move on to the #2, #3 items from the list above.
Move through the troubleshooting systematically.
Remember, you only need 3 things to get it to run!

Good luck

Yesterday I replaced the carb on my 89 jeep wrangler. Twice. Both times when I turn the ignition over it doesn't start but instantly floods the carb with gas. Why and how do I fix this?


Sounds like a stuck or defective float.(perhaps a hole in it). Also check the needle valve for operation and if its installed correctly. That is connected to the float

1987 jeep wrangle will not start or run


Uncouple the fuel line coming from the pump at the carburetor, place a clean can under the line, and have someone operate the starter--you should have fuel shoot from the line in spurts as the engine turns. If it does, then the entry port on the carburetor is plugged. Remove the float assembly and pull out the float needle valve. Hook the fuel line back to the carburetor and try the starter again, there should be fuel pumping into the float bowl. If not, check to see if there is a filter on the fuel inlet path that may be plugged. If no filter, remove the float needle seat to see if something is blocking the fuel passage. If all else fails, use compressed air to blow backwards through the needle seat (remove the fuel line again). Hope some of this helps!

1976 f250 truck sat for 6 yrs the gas has turned orange and smells like varnish this truck has an electric fuel pump i replaced the fuel filter and tried to start it several times with starter fluid ive...


hello, usually when gas sets in carb for a long time it turns into a varnish, you will have to take carb apart and clean all jets out, even the fuel pump may be clogged up, you will probably have to rebuild carb, unless you have access to air line to blow any and all jets, pretty much all passage ways, power jets, in other words you have a carb problem, you may need a new one, unless you have a strong solvent, that will break away any varnish or gum up.

Wont start


If it sat for two years, you probably have varnish and gum buildup in the carb. You'll need to take the bowl off the carb and clean it with carb cleaner. You'll also need to spray the cleaner around the linkages and the jets inside. Be very careful taking apart the carb so you don't lose the float needle.
