Dear,

You have to pump the fuel pump and bleed some fuel from the injectors so to bleed the air as well.

due to air blockage in the line its not letting to crank the engine.

please look for it

    how do i bleed fuel from the injectors? I had some friends that kept the car running for about 5 minutes by placing a fuel soaked rag over the throttle body and added fuel to it. they thought it would prime by doing this. They also thought it would help rid the fuel of water by burning it out in case that was a problem.

95 GT mustang wont start


You ran the car out gas and there's air in the system.. Not the Throttle Body.. Expel the air from the system.. 1. Raise/Support your hood.. 2. Turn your key to the ign position, (listen for the fuel pump to come on).. 3. Go to the fuel rail(s) and press the Schrader Valve, (looks like a tire air valve), until only fuel comes out.. (use safety gear, especially for eyes) 4. Rinse/Collect excess fuel before cranking (careful around electrical connections)

I have a 1990 Chevy 1500. Have replaced fuel-pump already and it ran great. Now it wont start again. Fuel-pump works, but injectors in throttle-body not injecting fuel. What would cause this?


Leak in fuel line. Put air pressure gauge on rail and crank engine. Should get psi reading. There should be a nipple on fuel rail for testing. If no pressure check for leak

Hi, the red wire is to test fuel pump , have you tested fuel pressure regulator, also did you replace fuel filter when you change fuel pump. If you wont to know for sure put a fuel pressure gauge on fuel rail port and see what kind of pressure you have. I have seen new fuel pumps be bad, but this way you will no for sure. Thanks if i can help just re post.

fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. When you turn the key do you hear fuel pump run? If not odds are the pump is bad.

I ran out of gas in my 99 chevy tahoe. will not start after gas was pumped. changed fuel filter and additional ignition parts & sensors. More likely the fuel pump or fuel injectors?


If you add a few tablespoons of gas directly to the throttle body after removing the air filter, or use starting fluid (ether), then if the car starts and runs after cranking, then it is a bad fuel pump.

Check the fuel pressure of the fuel pump rail to verify if gas is coming through the system.

If not, it's definitely a fuel pump.

If it were an injector, then it would still try to start on some cylinders assuming it's getting spark.

The fact that the problem started after gas was pumped, points to a fuel pump, as well.

So, I would go for the fuel pump if the fuel pressure is 0 psi or near that, or if one discovers that there isn't any gas coming through the piping when cranking.

Also, check fuses for the fuel pump and injectors.

99 tahoe,changed fuel filter,and poured some gas in the throttle body and it will start.


i am assuming that this vehicle will not start without the gas poured into the throttle body? If so then there is a fuel dilevery problem which can be coming from injectors that are not firing due to clogged injectors or a malfunctioning injection pulse. or clogged fuel delivery system which is most probaly not the case due to you changing the fuel filter, or a bad fuel pump. you have some testing ahead of you.
