Question about 1995 Honda Accord

Could a faulty fuel pump make your tach start bouncing lower suddenly and run rough than not want to start. Spray some starter fluid and fires up runs fine sometimes.

    I've changed wires,cap,rotor,plugs,ignition control module, map sensor, speed sensor,engine control module, fuel regulator,ignition coil,fuel pump relay. Car is in excellent shape wires and connectors show no corrosion. Have tried injector cleaner. Car has 143,000 miles, runs like a clock sometimes, won't even start other times. Thanks for any ideas.

It sounds like you may have gotten a little water in your gas. Or sometimes if you run an older model car out of gas or real darn close to empty you can get dirt and debris that lies on the bottom of your gas tank sucked into your injectors. I would first try buying a high quality fuel treatment from the auto parts store and adding it to the gas tank during your next fill up. Also check and see if it's time to replace the spark plugs and plug wires.

Cranks but wont start


Likely a fuel delivery problem.

Check the filter, as it may be clogged and due for replacement. To test for fuel delivery, open your airbox and spray some starter fluid (purified ether, usually) down into the throttle body while someone else cranks the engine. If it fires up and runs for a few seconds but won't run without spraying the starter fluid, then you know you've got spark and compression. If that's the case, there could be any number of potential issues: throttle position sensor (not very common, but it does happen), fuel injectors clogged (common if you use low-grade fuel), fuel filter/strainer clogged (filters should be replaced every 30k miles or so, on average), fuel pump failure (you should hear a buzzing from the fuel pump when you crank the engine).

If the starter fluid doesn't help, then the problem is no spark. Check each plug/cable for fouling.

Where do I spray the starter fluidin a 96 dodge caravan


The starter fluid needs to be sprayed on the throttle body.This is done for testing the car with starter fluid.If it runs by spraying starter fluid,then most probably the fuel pump is the problem.
If you notice no start problem on your car/.Then there are many other possibilities too. No start problem.This is many a times caused by weak battery or faulty battery, or can be possible that battery to starter connection is loose or faulty starter itself.First the battery to start and both battery and starter voltage needs to be checked and confirmed.If that is checked ok, then other possibilities like faulty spark plugs, faulty fuel pump etc etc needs to be checked.

Won't start. I've replaced the fuel filter, the spark plugs, wires, and ignition coils. Will run off of starting fluid, but not by itself. Checked fuel pressure and it's coming up around 40. What else...


SOUND LIKE FAULTY FUEL PUMP OR BAD PUMP RELAY. IF YOU SPRAY STARTER FLUID AND VECHICLE RUNS.ITS NOT GETTING FUEL..NEXT TIME ENGINE STALL OUT.GET A FUEL PRESSURE READING.DONT TURN ON THE IGNITION .IF FUEL PRESSURE READS ZERO YOU KNOW YOU HAVE FAULTY FUEL PUMP RELAY OR FUEL PUMP RELAY FAULTY.

Check for fuel pump pressure, blocked fuel filter, or the over pressure valve that returns fuel to the tank may be faulty.
