Car overheated, now will start if you spray starter fluid in it but will not run.


this could be several things but my guess is that you may need a new fuel pump. it runs after spraying starting fluid but not without. means its not getting fuel. check fuse, in fuse box. if none are blown. open fuel door with fuel cap off have someone listen by the fuel door turn the key on and they should here the fuel pump start to hum. if it is making a humming noise. then it could be a plugged up fuel filter not letting enough fuel to the engine. the fuel pressure switch may have went bad. if you have a pressure gauge check to see if there is the correct fuel pressure for your car.

99 taurus sat for 2 mounths has gas wont start


Has gas where--- in the fuel tank?

Put a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail & see if you have a working
fuel pump,system & pressure,somewhere
around 40# with key on/eng off

I assume the engine turns with the starter

Is the battery any good,start there,can read 12.5 volts
& still be bad

Will it try & start if you spray the throttle body with starting
fluid or carb cleaner

If you have spark plug wires, put an old plug into one wire
& ground it on motor to check for spark

You can have spark but too weak to run motor

Make sure all fuses are in place & good

Look for a bad fuse or relay. If both check out, most likely an ECM problem

1999 Chevy S10 cranks but wont start


A very common problem on the 99 S10 is a leaky fuel pressure regulator in the intake plenum.What happens is when the truck sits for a few hours or more the regulator leaks all of the fuel in the fuel injection system into the intake air plenum. This does 2 things, 1 it has no fuel pressure when starting and 2 it floods the air intake with raw fuel. Sometimes if you turn the key on wait 3 seconds then turn key off then turn key back on and just turn key to crank starter for a split second and wait 3 seconds.do this 3 times to repressurize fuel system then crank to start(you will hear fuel pump buzz each time you do this.also you may have leaky fuel injectors. Try to crank engine with the gas pedel to the floor. This will tell the computer to stop spraying fuel trhough the injectors and it will start. Joe ASE Master Tech
