YOU MAY HAVE AIR IN THE FUEL LINE! AT THE FUEL RAIL, THERE IS A BLEEDER VALVE, WITH A VALVE CORE IN IT! YOU CAN USE A VALVE CORE REMOVAL TOOL TO REMOVE THE VALVE CORE, AND TURN THE KEY ON FOR JUST LONG ENOUGH TO SEE FUEL COMING OUT, THEN SHUT THE KEY OFF, AND PUT THE VALVE CORE BACK IN, AND TRY TO START IT! I HAVE A 98' THAT I HAD TO DO THAT TO, AND IT WORKED! WORTH A SHOT ANYWAY!

95 chevy corsica wont start. it ran fine the night before but now it turns but wont start.


As with any no start issue, you need to figure out if you are dealing with a no fuel or no spark problem to proceed.
The pump could have failed, or the filter in the tank could be plugged up.
I would make sure it has spark at the plugs and then check fuel pressure with a gauge.

Ran out of gas and wont start


injection system may have air in it dont know much about this model try cleaning spark plugs by warming them up on a gas cooker not to much just warm clean them and try that might just be damp plugs but it sounds to me that there could be an air blockage in system some ford models diesels are notorious for not starting when the run out if possible check to see if there is any way you can see if there is any fuel getting to carb of inj system

Hello you will need to replace the spark plugs you quoted it is getting lots of gas so your spark plugs are wet.disconnect your battery while your replacing your spark plugs once finished replacing the spark plugs reconnect the battery now try to start it should start up.

Bad gas van wont run


undo fuel pipe where it exits the fuel pressure regulater and turn engine over , use bucket and rag to catch pumped fuel , do this for half gallon and reconnect ,, then take spark plugs out and clean with easy start (eather) and replace , should start fine now ,
