Will it stay running after you start it with the spray?

    My answer was a request for more information because your question was too vague. I was trying to establish whether or not your engine continued to run after using the spray, or if it died once the spray had burned off? Without knowing this, your question cannot be answered. The low score was not warranted.

Hi, can you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key on? If not, try replacing the fuel pump relay or swapping it with the horn or A/C relay. Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Will start but wont stay running


No the missing O2 sensors would not keep it from running. The missing exhaust pipes might not help matters. No exhaust system would cause a lack of back pressure.
I would want to know what base fuel pressure is with a gauge before and after cranking. Your thought about bad gas is legit, today's gasoline is only good for about 2 or 3 months before it starts gelling up.
Did you replace the inline filter the last time you put the new pump in ? And are you sure the pump is getting power after the key is released?

I have a 98 s-10 it wont start it has 40 to 45 pounds of pressure & its firing getting gas but wont run i pulled the fuel pump relay n it try to run i sprayed it with start fluid it hits but if i put...


If this truck has the 4.3L vortec motor it will not start with 40-45 PSI fuel Pressure.Thius engine requires approx. 56 PSI fuel pressure or it will not start. The fuel pump more than likely needs to be replaced this is a common problem with the 4.3L vortec engine.Change the fuel pump and your problems will be solved.

It ran out of gas and now wont start. I put gas directly into throttle body, and it starts/runs, but wont remain started when gas runs out.


Sounds like fuel pump. Your fuel pump relies on fuel to act as coolant. Running it low often makes pump run hot and shortens it's life. Sounds like running out of fuel did just that. Way to test, pull fuel line off in engine compartment and have someone turn key to "ON" (NOT START!!!) position, you should fuel spraying out of line) If not, fuel pump is bad.

Ran out of gas and wont start


Sounds like a typical case of letting the car run dry out of fuel, you may want to try spraying starter fluid into the intake/air filter after allowing the key to be left on in the run position for a few seconds, this allows the fuel pump to fill the fuel lines with fuel, then try spraying a shot of start fliud if still no start you may have a more serious problem....fuel contamination...the bottom of the fuel tank may have sediment in it and when you let it go dry it pulled up the bad stuff and now it needs to be flushed.
New fuel filter, injector service, fuel tank drained/flushed and fuel lines drained.

Chevy astro van turns over but wont start when


Check to see if the fuel pump is kicking in,
when you turn the key on without starting the van you should hear it kick on for about 2 seconds,

It could be...
A clogged fuel filter...
Blown fuse for the pump..or bad pump relay..
No gas
Bad fuel pump

I was driving for about 15 minutes then i looked at my gas gauge and thought it was empty. It was below empty. My car shut off. Well...we put gas in it and it still wont start.. what could it be??


how much gas you put in?
if its below empty u would have drained the pump out you have to atleast have half a tank now and keep winding engine till the gas goes up the tubes again the tank and the tubes will be dry as a bone
