Depending on how long it has sat, the gas can turn to varnish and not be capable of 'lighting off' with spark-try draining the tank and fill with 5 gallons of fresh gas, charge the battery to full charge and try again.

1984 Mercedes Benz 500 sel hard to start fuel pump is working pour gas down throat run for a minute then it cut's off what else could be wrong


Fuel pump. It can run. But it also can not put out enough pressure. You have already proven it by putting gas down the throttle.

I have a 1984 mercedes benz 500 sel it will not start fuel pump is working and if i pour gas in the throat it will run but will cut back off what else could be wrong


The fuel filter could be clogged or the fuel line could be kinked. The in-tank take up line could also be blocked.

I have a 89 Mazda rx7 was in storage and I believe the gas dried up will not start


if it is spinning over as if there is no compression ( really fast) then remove the plugs and squirt oil in the chambers as you turn the crankshaft. This will seal the rotor seals and give compression.
replace the fuel as it may be stale. fill the float bowl by pouring fuel into the balance pipe in the throat of the carby (When the air filter is off you will see a pipe in the middle of the carby throat point up-- balance tube). Check that the fuel pump is operational.

How to prime carburetor on 1988 Toyota tercel 1bbl


Normally, you wouldn't need to do this to get the engine started. If you have a mechanical fuel pump ion the engine, just cranking the engine over should cause the pump to push gas into the carburetor. And if an electric pump, it should come on with the key in on.

But to prime, pour a small amount of gas down the throat of the carb, and crank. As the engine fires and runs, the pump should begin working and pushing fuel into the carb.

If I pour gas into carbarater it will run but if u try to start it the regular way it doesnt


Can be several things . By pouring fuel into the carby it is going into the inlet manifold making a rich mixture . check the gas has not leaked from the carby. over night, Check the choke flap is closed before starting with the engine cold. Check the carby.accelerator gas pump is working. by working the linkage you will see a spray of gas injected into the carby. throat. If not the remove and repair.

Fuel pump leak


Looks like it may be a fuel return line from the fuel manifold . It may be split or loose . Probably both . Get a new section of fuel hose and some good clips and replace it

Had one answer but i failed to mention that since the trk .had set up so long and would not run i used a gallon jug for a fuel tank and fresh gas .I also used clear fuel lines and could see the pump ****...


Lightly tap the CARB after or while cranking.If the vehicle has been in-op, the fuel in the bowl would have gone bad or dried out leaving a degree of corrosion behind. After soaking in fuel overnight, Tapping may permit the float to drop opening the needle valve. Chk the accelerator pump by working the throttle linkage. kEY OFF! lOOK INTO THE CARB TO VERIFY ACCELERATOR PUMP FUNCTION.. If you are pumping fuel, it should start. If no fuel, The pump may have dried up. Again, a good soaking overnight may swell up the plunger in the pump enough to get it working. Worse case scenario if none of this works is rebuild the CARB. Good Luck and be careful. _N_

Engine stalled out,would not start, pour gas in carb,cranks,keeps running,until idle falls below 12to1500rpm,than stalls out again and will not crank,repeat gas or starting fluid in carb,cranks runs and...


This truck is fuel injected, the problem sounds like a weak fuelpump, it runs when you pour gas into it until that gas runs out, the first thing is to test the fuel preasure, if the pump is weak it may run with gas poured into it but wont idle, also a common problem is the coolant temp sensor and the ground wires to thermostat housing bolt but i wont bet its the pump inside the fuel tank, if you put a fuel gauge on it there should be at least 55-61 psi if its a few pounds lower it can cause problems, you have everything else and it runs with gas poured so its a fuel problem check the preasure, theres a valve up top on the fuel line to connect a fuel gauge to it, start there hope this is helpful.

1985 diesel after sitting overnight will not start


The check valve is a small brass fitting where the return line attaches to the filter head. I believe it takes a 7/16" wrench. There is a 'duck bill' inside that prevents fuel from leaking back to the tank causing air in the system. It should allow flow in only on direction. Some times you can see light through it if it's bad enough. Also, the lines between the injectors can dry out and start to leak air. Air will leak in before fuel leaks out, and you won't see it. There are plastic, cup-shaped connectors for these hoses that press onto the top of each injector. They are sealed by two o-rings on each injector body where it meets the connector. These o-rings can dry out and also leak air and fuel. Your Ford dealer or diesel service professional should have the proper o-rings. Any other o-rings might not seal, as they won't be the exact size. You already changed the fuel solenoid when you replaced the pump. It is inside. There has to be battery cranking voltage to it while cranking, and battery voltage with key in 'on' position. The wire attaches to the top of the pump. This is not likely to be the problem, since it restarts every 2 hours.
