If you are not getting fuel to injectors, and you have a new fuel pump that is getting power and you can hear it run for a few seconds with the key on - engine off, then you most likely have either a plugged fuel filter or faulty fuel pressure regulator.

You can go to autozone, com and register for a free account. Then login, choose vehicle year, make, model, engine size. Lastly, click on view repair manual. Now you have a free repair manual for your car.

If you do not have power to the pump, check that the safety switch for the fuel pump didn't go off. Should be down my passenger or driver kick panel.

No spark 1999 volvo s 80 but has fire to inj..but wont spray

what have you actually got

no spark is from cam/crank position sensors faulty, faulty ignition control module
but you say fire to injectors -- do you mean power to injectors
if you have power but the injectors are not squirting---low /no fuel pressure = faulty fuel pump / no power to pump , faulty pressure regulator , pump relay problem
At this point check for a broken timing belt/ chain

98 dodge ram 1500 5.9 truck has been sitting for 2 years with a blown ****** got the ****** rebuilt and installed it back in the truck but wont start has spark and fuel at rail but injectors wont fire

98 so its a older vehicle ?? Well i know nothing about layout of this american vehicle but for its age check the fuel rail as on the end is a vacumn controlled valve so make sure its connected and the vacumn pipe isnt cracked or perished ,Anything else i have no idea sorry dont see these motors here in spain very often unless its on a imported camper van but these are normally all diesel ,have seen a 7.2 litre ford E350 petrol though but running on a gas conversion

I changed motors in my seabring and we have went thur every thing it acts like it aint getting gas or fire what could be the problem its a 2.5 liter motor

Your engine needs basically four things in order to start:

> Volumetric efficiency (V)
> Air/fuel ratio (A)
> Compression (C)
> Ignition (I)
V + A + C + I = POWER

When there is no POWER (engine will not start), it is because one (or more) parts of the equation is missing. PRELIMINARY diagnosis is to determine which parts of the equation are present and which are missing. Then PINPOINT diagnosis is to determine WHY the missing parts are missing.

Until preliminary and pinpoint diagnosis is completed, nobody can do much more than GUESS what could be causing your problem.

With that said, you need to find out whether it is fuel or spark, or BOTH at the same time. The actual location of the problem can be narrowed down considerably by knowing this.

EXAMPLE: If there is fuel PRESSURE (verified by using a fuel pressure gauge) but there is no injector pulse or spark at the spark plugs, the cause would most likely be a cranshaft position sensor problem, because this will affect BOTH. This scenario would also completely rule out a fuel pump malfunction. However, if there is fuel pressure and injector pulse, but no spark, the problem would be more likely caused by an ignition control module, because this has nothing to do with your injectors or your fuel pump.

- proper diagnosis required.

The dash gauges all work , fuel pumps are both good , the fuel pumps wont come on and the truck trys to fire when i turn the ignition on but wont , could this be a fuel regulator

did you check the fuel pressure pump on the frame rail for power and ground? have you verified no ignition spark to the spark plugs? have you checked for fire from the coil to the distributor cap? does the check engine light come on when you turn the key on? have you check for injector pulse and power at the fuel injectors? if the fuel pump won't come on and you have no ignition fire and no injector pulse, all of these systems are triggered by the ECM.

I have fuel and I have spark why wont it start?

Not sure what vehicle you have, but...
You need spark at the spark plugs (Check a few or all of them)
Even if you have fuel pressure, you also need the injectors to "fire", so there are two stages for the fuel delivery, fuel pump and injector fire.
You need good compression on your cylinders, and finally, if your timing belt or chain has slipped or broken, you wont be able to start it.

Fuel Pump And injector. And will not turn over

This problem can be caused by many things. But, the ignition module is responsible for firing the spark plugs, then sending the spark signal to the PCM so the PCM can fire the injectors and run the pump. The module gets a signal from the camshaft position sensor. I just fixed this problem on a Saturn and it ended up being a bad EST wire from the module to the PCM. It can also be a bad module or a bad fuse on either system. Check all of the fuses under the hood and inside the car. The module can be removed and tested for free at Auto Zone.

I have a 1988 toyota pickup with the 22re motor it has plenty of spark,and turns over but wont fire i also replaced the fuel pump and still nothing what else could it be?

Check all the fuses,and check the fuel pump relay,if this checks out o k,See if there is fuel pressure at the fuel injectors,if there is,then the injectors are not pulsing.The cause of this is the pick up coil in the distributor,but replace the distributor as a whole,this has all the components in the distributor,That control the fire,and the pulse to the injectors,A used one might be more economical sound money wise.

1989 suzuki samurai won't fire has a 1990 Geo tracker motor fuel injected 1.6 8 vaulve.

Check if you are getting spark in your plugs. if there's a spark, check the fuel pressure.Your pump might not be delivering the required pressure and volume.
If there's no spark, check your ignition system components.

Check for a bad distributor cap and or rotor..........a bad cap and or rotor can caues firing (cross fire)across the terminals and introduce spark to the wrong cylinders at the wrong time.......
