I have a 4.3 engine wont start in morning unless i pour gas in throtle body wont give a shot of gas when i turn on key but will start all day after first start in morning


without knowing the year, make,model,and mileage it sounds like you have a partially blocked fuel filter. the problem occurs after the vehicle sits for long periods of time such as overnight. the trash in the filter has time to settle and block the fuel line so the engine doesn't get the fuel it needs to start. by pouring gas into the engine you are allowing the engine to start and pressurize the fuel system and force the blockage out of the way enough to allow fuel to the engine, as long as you start it up every so often the the trash in the filter cant settle enough to restrict fuel flow. this will be a very good place to start looking for a fuel flow issue.

EVERYTIME 2004 TAHOE GETS LOW ON FUEL (NOT EMPTY, BUT AROUND 30 MILES LEFT...BEFORE ANY INDICATOR LIGHT COMES ON) IT WONT START AGAIN. IT WILL SIT OVER NIGHT AND WE WONT BE ABLE TO START IT....


Sounds like you have either a bad fuel pump or a leak in the line somewhere. With a leak in the line it will take a long time for the gas to get up toward the engine. When it sits over night the gas line empties back into the tank and the process starts all over again

Ran out of gas,put 2 gals in tank got it started drove 25 miles, now it wont start. engine cranks but wont start and cant smell even the faintes hint of gas....


the debris from the bottom off the tank may have clogged the fuel filter and or the injectors. theres no fuel getting into the engine, change fuel filter, thats about $25.00. if problems persists try an injector cleaner.

Eengine wont start has gas and spark?


Does it sound like its spinning or turning faster than normal? If so could just be flooded. Try cranking engine with excellerator 3/4 way down at 10 sec intervals with 2 min brake in between. These cars have always seemed to flood easy. And the air intake system is so enclosed it cant really dry out easy. I try that 3-4 times if it does seem like its trying to start or getting better than Id say tow to mechanic. Possible coil problems too? But seen alot of them flood out.

89 honda civic hatchback, car wont start


If your lazy... sounds like you might be in regards to this car than I would at least pull the plugs (inpect them for corrosion or damage and squirt oil in the cylinders not too much, you cant spin the engine after 4years without lubricating the motor. Than see if it combusts using starting fluid, it it does fire then address the fuel system and clean. Good Luck, I think you will be ok but 4 year old gas is like varnish...

Ran it out of gas,now wont start


Turn the key without starting the engine, you should hear the fuel pump engage. Do this a few times to prime the engine. If it still doesn't start, spray "starting fluid", available at parts store, into your throttle body. It should start now.
