2001 evenrude e225 will not start normal but will with ether


Do not use Ether on that engine!!!!!!!!!!
Right now the carbs are gummed up and need cleaned. Ether can blow your motor. You can get some throttle body cleaner or take it in and have carbs cleaned.
Just don't use ether

Try setting the valve clearances, if they are ok then the compression is low and won't start, but under no circumstances should you use ether as it will burn out valves

I own a 2002 isuzu axiom, while mu suv was running my brother unplugged the harness from the TPS immediately after it stalled now it wont start back up..replaced the TPS but still wont start after...


Try spraying some ether into the air intake, then try to start. If it starts then dies, it is running off the ether and you have a fuel delivery problem. If the vehicle still won't start after trying a couple of times with ether, you are most likely having an ignition related problem.
Let us know what you find. Good luck.

06 dodge nitro 2.8 diesel wont start but will start on ether every time , it wont start hot or cold unless a squirt of ether is used.,


First off, ether is not the way to go at all! You'll end up messing up the piston rings with continuous use. Also with using ether engines tend to get "addicted" to it (its the only way they will start after some time as the rings get burnt and compression under normal cranking isnt enough)

The fact you can start the engine on ether means fuel prob isnt the problem. I would have said the problem was probably your pre-heating system and to check your plugs, wiring and fuses for the pre-heating system but the fact hot start doesnt work either doesnt make sense.

How long have you been using ether? If it has been for an extended period then I have a feeling the piston rings might be shot and full compression cant be reached during cranking and the ether just kickstarts your engine into starting. Any smoke out the tailpipe?

I would still check the glow plugs.

Hope this helps in some way

1993 Chevy Astro Mini Van not starting


If You can start the vehicle off ether only then you have a fuel issue. the pump is working and the fuel pressure regulator is too. so either the injectors are not getting an electrical signal to open and close of possibly, Your oil sending unit is defective and has shut down your fuel system (a safety).

Truck would not start, gave it a blast of ether, it started


get your self a fuel pressure tester, hook it up to the fuel rail, you should get at least 30 psi with key on, 30 to 45 psi with engine running.

Jeep turns over but will not start


I am going to assume that you didn't accidentally put DIESEL in?? If you did, siphon all you can out and add fresh GAS(!) and 3-4 bottles Octane booster.

Squirt a bit of Starting Ether in the Air CLeaner inlet
Start Jeep
Squirt Ether
Start Jeep
Start Jeep
Squirt Ether
Start Jeep
Repeat until it runs. Do not use alot of Ether - will blow engine!!!
Fixed!

If you didn't put Diesel in, and KNOWING that the problems are usually FIRE-related, replace all FIRE-related parts ($40.00)

Get new ROTOR (Thingy that spins inside CAP, distributes HVolts)
Get new CAP
Get new cables (change cables to new CAP 1 at a time!!!) DO NOT RUN cables neatly. Cross them over each other in looms
Get New sparkplugs (Do not overtighten. Turn to seat snugly, then 1/4 turn more
