First of all , are you getting any gas ?? I would take the plugs out and smell them and see how they look. If they smell like fresh gas it's flooding, if black with carbon build up ? It not burning well , it should be a brownish color,like a tan. Clean or replace

It is fairly hard to diagnose from this,but I am assuming that it ran ok the last time you ran it.It may be flooded.hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank the engine.Do not be tempted to lift your foot or pump the pedal.It may have to crank for 20 seconds or more,but it should begin to fire up, first 1 cylinder,then 2 etc,again do not lift your foot until it is firing on all cylinders and revs up cleanly ,then lift but keep it revving a little until all gas is cleared and the plugs arent fouled.
hope this helps or get back with some more information

Try to crank it without throttle to get the gas out. Pause, try to start.

2004 grand am se v6 sometimes wont start unless gas pedal is pushed


when you say -turn over do you mean firing-turning over to me means the starter motor is cranking or turning over-firing is when combustion happens in the cylinders-as far as the cranking continuing-try some wd40 in the ignition switch-it may be hanging up-Denny

92 GMC sonoma 2.5L 4cylinder - replaced plugs,wires,fuel filter on the rail,checked fuel pump plenty of fuel. Wants to crank but doesnt seem like its getting fuel. used starting fluid still would fire off....


How about no spark or did you screw up the firing order when you replaced the plug wires? It is easy to do.Typically there are 2 things to get an engine to fire that's fuel and spark. other things will make it run bad but not even a short rumble when you use starting fluid, there is no ignition. Get a spark test tool from the auto parts store. Check the firing order and be sure your wires are in the correct order.

Spongy gas pedal


You will need to open the hood and have someone watch the throttle as you push the gas pedal, see if the throttle arm moves as you push on the pedal, this may be due to a bad cable or it may be off its holding bracket or loose. start with this test.

I have an issue with a 87 toyota pick up carburetor. Sometimes it doesnt want to start and sometimes it does a friend told me its that diaphram on the front of the carb with the 3 bolts but he could not...


Okay, your freind may be right, that part is called the accelerator pump, it is used for starting the truck, when you pump the gas to start it this pumps a few squirts of gas into the carb. what concerns me is that you hold the gas pedal to the floor to start it, most of the time an internal leaking carb floods the engine and holding the pedal down will let it start, a quick test would be to use a carb cleaner spray and before trying to start the truck hit the gas pedal and see if inside from the top of the carb look and see if you see a squirt of gas spray out, you will need some one to push the gas pedal or you can do it at the carb, if it squirts gas then the accelerator pump may be good and carb may be leaking and need rebuilding but if it doesnt squirt then its bad and then i want you to spray the carb cleaner into the carb and try to start the truck and if its due to the accel pump then after you spray into carb the truck should fire up and run without having to hold the pedal to the floor, if thats the case then replace accel pump if it still doesnt fire until you hold gas down then crab needs rebuilding . good day. hope this is helpful.

My 90 celica takes about 5 minutes to start,


gosh i really wish we can both get assistance on this one , mine is a 2003 and does the same thing. when i took it to the shop they said it could be my catalistic (somethng like that) converter, once i fixed that , now they are saying the problem are the emissions, ( i think emissions are the hoses that are probably not well connected.

2005 GMC envoy XL won't start It seems like its not getting gas. I turned the key on and pushed the gas pedal to the floor and nothing it won't start its not the fuel pump its fine


First, do not push the gas pedal at all when starting. There are many things that can cause a no start. A scan tool needs to be hooked up to see if there are any fault codes detected. This problem needs to be diagnosed by a trained mechanic.
