96 tahoe . It will not crank up unless I pour gas into the throttle body . Once it cranks it will run untill I shut it off but want crank by itself . Why


First, lets be clear with terms. To crank is to turn the engine over, you can do this manually with a wrench on many vehicles. It requires no spark or air. To turn over or to fire is when you achieve combustion. Example: You could pull the spark plugs on a vehicle and turn the key and it would crank, but it wouldn't fire or turn over.

Now it sounds to me like your vehicle is cranking but not firing unless you pour gas in it. My first thoughts are fuel system. I'm assuming it can't be fuel pump because it runs once it fires. Perhaps the fuel pump isn't priming itself, or perhaps somehow air is getting in the line between the injector and fuel pump? Test the fuel pump first by turning the car from off to on (not starting, just on). You will usually hear a short buzzing noise coming from the engine bay that stops shortly afterwards, that's your fuel pump pressurizing the line. (Pro Tip: If you ever try to take your key from off to straight to start and the vehicle doesn't start on the first try, but does the second time no problem, try delaying at on for a moment before trying to start. This gives your fuel pump time to pressurize the line.) Assuming your fuel pump is charging the line, the next place to look would be at the path the fuel takes to the throttle body. When you crank it over and it doesn't start, are you getting any fuel? If you can't see where the fuel enters the system try smelling the exhaust while cranking without it firing, if it smells of fuel you're good and need to look at air flow and spark, if not it's a fuel issue.

Past that, I'll leave it to someone more experienced than myself, but that would be how I troubleshot my own vehicle.

My '97 ford taurus isnt kicking over while tryn to start it up


Anything done to car, or happened recently that might affect this?
If starter fluid doesn't work, and starter is cranking normally (too fast may point to a timing belt broke, too slow may mean battery run down and not producing sufficient spark), there's still a problem in your ignition. Pull a sparkplug or two. After cranking a little they should be wet with gas. Check for compression while a plug is out: hold your finger over plug hole when cranking. You should feel pressure buildup and release over and over as long as cranking.
A properly timed engine needs spark, fuel, and compression to start. Keep reviewing your procedure. Something is not right.
You may want to have the computer scanned for possible trouble codes. Check plug wires for proper routing. Were plugs gapped right?

2002 chevy s10 2.2l no start condition. changed fuel pump and filter. plugs wires timing chain and gears. still not starting its cranking but wont turnover. i have spark but on the fuel pressure release...


The s10 have a fuel shut off relay to shut off fuel supply in case of an accident. They also have a anti-theft system that prevents fuel in case of theft.Pull the fuel line off and crank the engine to see if you get fuel. Sorry I can't be of more help but without hands on vehicle it is hard to tell.Also your fuel pump maybe sounding like it is pumping. In other words it may be running but not pumping fuel it mat have a ruptured diaphragm in the pump.The pump is running but not pumping fuel. Pull the fuel line off at the fuel filter and turn on ignmition or crank the engine you should have about 50PSI coming out.If you don't install new fuel pump.These vehicles are common for this problem the fuel pump runs but does not pump fuel or not enough pressure these vehicle require 57 PSI to start if it has less than 51PSI it will not start unless you use starting fluid then it will run.It will run with less fuel pressure it will just not start with less than 57PSI.

Hope this helps

My 1997 chevy tahoe is hard to start, I changed the fuel filter and spark plugs but it still takes a lot of cranking before it will start


the pressure regulator may be leaking. pull he vac line and see if its wet. wet is bad. Also these fuel pump connectors are known to overheat from poor connections. Do a search on gm fuel pump repeat failures and overheating connectors. Also the fuel pump could be leaking down so the line needs to be primed. Try cycling the key about 3 to 5 times before you start it. The pump will prime for 3 seconds each time before shutting off. If this helps the problem is the fuel pump.

Car died on road engine turn over but will not start


Try spraying starting fluid into the air intake, with the help of someone else starting the car. As they crank over the car, spray the starting fluid into the air intake. Do this for at least 15 seconds. If the car tries to start up the fuel pump has probably gone bad. When turning the key to the on position do you hear the fuel pump humming? If the pump is not humming the fuel pump is probably bad.

1997 Safari will not start unless carb cleaner sprayed in air intake. runs after this. Confirm spark and motor rotation.


Have your fuel pressure checked.Sounds like pump or relay is out or fuel filter restricted too much.Remove the gas cap and put your ear to filler neck while someone turn's the key on,you should hear the pump running.pump run's for about 8 second's to prime fuel rail then shut's off till cranking.
