Your fuel filter could be plugged, or the fuel hose leading to the carbourator could be plugged, or there could be a break in the gas line. hope this helped! =)

If you have a fuel filter in the gas line, it could be plugged up. From your description, it's not real clear as to exactly what's happening.

Spray a burst of starting fluid down the carb and see if it tries to fire. If it does, then you probably have a fuel supply issue. If it doesn't, you may have an ignition problem. Timing, distributor,etc.

Fuel issues- No fuel pressure (bad fuel pump); fuel not getting to carb (fuel filter, fuel line plugged); fuel getting to carb, but not to the engine (bad float, sticking valve, blockage in carb- carb rebuild should fix this)

Ignition issues- Broken or worn parts in timing assembly; bad or mal-adjusted points; shorted condenser; rotor arm tension; loose distributor; bad coil wire.

Hope this info helps to get you going! If not,get back to me.
Cheers!

Do you have a "service engine soon" light? If you use to much of the starting fluid you can seriously damage the engine and/or sensors.

Fuel engine control module, or fuel return pressure limiting valve?


Well, first of all, it would be really nice to know what kind of vehicle we are talking about. YEAR, MAKE, MODEL and ENGINE SIZE / TYPE is usually customary for this type of discussion.

What is particularly disturbing is the question of: How are you going about "put[ting] more fuel into the fuel filter"?

Engine tries turning over, indicating Battery and Starter are ok. but, engine wont fire


try checking under rhe hood in main fuse box for blown fuses, should be on driverside fenderwell. if not that try to narrow your search by finding out if not getting fuel or fire. when keys on do you hear the fuel pump humming?thats one way of telling if your getting fuel. go to the fuel rack on engine there will be a [looks like tire valve on fuel line] press the valve in with key on[watch your eyes] fuel should come out with alot of pressure!! if you're getting fuel you'll need to go towards no fire.pull plug wire off[any wire] insert screw driver into plug wire and ground the shaft of screwdriver out against motor and turn engine over, if no spark, go to coil pack and check it for fire. i hope this helps!!!!

2003 ford transit diesel fuel getting to injectors engine is turning over but not firing


Have your injection pump checked. If the diesel fuel feed
going to the pistons is not highly atomized, there's no way that the diesel fuel gets to explode to keep your
engine to run. However, also check the air filter system
going to your engine. To get the diesel fuel to explode needs right air fuel ratio. Once these are checked, I'm
sure you get your diesel car running.

Deisal out of gas wont start


The fuel system has a bleeder located on the engine, located near the passenger side front of the engine. Open the bleeder, turn the engine over until you can see fuel come out on the ground near the front of the engine. Close the bleeder, attempt to restart the engine. It may take a couple of tries, but it should start after five or six attempts. Do not run the starter for more than twenty seconds per attempt, with at least one minute between attempts.
