Your fuel pump isn't putting out enough gas to turn over motor it needs over 14lbs per square inch of pressure to start even though it only needs 12 to keep running. you will have to replace fuel pump.get acdelco and you ill never have to replace again.

My 98 gmc 1500 V8 5.0l won't start. Has good spark


Spray starting fluid into the air intake of the engine, if it starts and you have fuel pressure you have no injection or injector pulse as we call it. Check ECM fuse one and two for continuity if it starts with fluid..

My 96 crown vic police interceptor, cranks won't start without spraying starter fluid.. the car won't start without spraying starter fluid into air intake hose to carb...


starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

I think my starter is bad on my 1994 GMC Jimmy Vortec. I turn the key and it cranks but will not start. I CAN NOT find the starter on this vehicle in order to tap on it and see if that is the problem....


if it cranks the starter should be good. remove the air intake from the intake manifold. you need to spray starting fluid down the throttle body and see if it starts. the feul pumps go bad on these because of bad wiring. you probaly have a bad pump

Won't start


check the IAT(intake air temperature)sensor, if its bad may cause a no start situation and flooding,also check foe fuses to the ignition system and voltage to the coils
