My 92 maxima se just died as i was driving it.i put gas in it and it ran for 2 miles then died again


could be a fuel pump. hammer on the gas tank and see if it tries to start. if not then spray carb cleaner or starting fluid into the air intake and see if it starts and runs for a few seconds if so your looking at a bad fuel pump most likely.

90 yj only 70k on it sat for 2 years. 4.2 carb, ran one day now hard start, runs for 15 min. then dies. cant restart unless kept in start position. not ign. switch, fuel pump, cap, rotor, wires, plugs, or...


Check the fuel for a presence of water. I'm sure there was a recall notice on the gasket on top of the fuel tank where the sending unit mounts. My YJ sat for a year and had water in the tank from this leaking. Drain and drop the tank, replace the gasket, and reinstall.

Drive'n and i thought i ran out of gas /try to prym it


when low on gas the impuritys in the tank can clog the fuel filter, so if the fuel pump has air in it , it might not be able to overcome the resistance in the filter, replace fuel filter and try again

88 jeep yj carb 6 cly automatic, where is the map


If you have a carb you do not have a map or IAC valve. They are on fuel injected throttle body setups. You really should go to an auto parts store and get a book if your really interested.

Why would a 1990 Chev. Start hard and die shortly after starting in cooler weather? It should go into high idle immediately and run fine... It will crank over for 4 or 5 seconds, then fire and die shortly...


Sounds like the fuel supply through is inadequate. That is a Want-to-be fuel injection system that uses a relay to enrichen the gas mixture.

Solution could be a container of fuel system cleaner, and a spray or two of carb cleaner in the injector.

Other causes could be:
Failure of the "choke" to richen the gas mixture
Vacuum line leakage.
Fuel filter becoming clogged

Wont start after 6 mos. I changed the spark plug, drained & added fresh gas, checked the fuel filter... Kicks over fine. Ran for 4 seconds, then it died. Always ran & started great before.


With a new plug and fresh gas it should start. Check to make sure there isn't a kill switch turned off or that the gas petcock from the tank to the carb is on.

How did you check the fuel filter? Disconnecting it from the fuel line that goes to the carb is the best way, making sure the gas is turned on under the tank. Bleed off a little gas into a can or something just to make sure the filter isn't plugged.

The last thing I'd do is take off the air filter and spray a little starting fluid in the carb. It may start and run several times if there is old gas in there somewhere. Remember the bowl on the carb is probably still full of old gas. After some fresh fuel reaches the plug it should start and continue to run.

(You might drain the bowl on the carb of ols gas before you go any further)

Good luck!
