Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Sounds like a fuel issue, probably the fuel pump. Listen to see if you can hear the fuel pump kicking on when you first turn the key. It should make a buzzing sound for a second or two. Check your fuel pump fuse, relay, and reset, if it is equipped with the reset button. Some are, some are not. Refer to your manual. If you can't hear the pump, it is not working. It may be the pump or it may not be getting power. Check the fuel filter and gas lines. Lastly, it may be a fuel injector. Sometimes, it may be a fault in the computer. Your not getting fuel to the engine.

SOURCE: 1992 gmc jimmy wont start unless i spray with starting fluid after it starts it will start every time untill the next day then i have to spray again ?

Fuel pump issue.--

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Seems like out of gas but has gas but wont start.


Spray starter fluid into intake, if it starts then stops again, you have a fuel problem. If it still won't start you have a spark problem

Fuel pump and filter good condition. but the car wont start, ignition does turn engine.pls advise. booysen


First establish fuel pressure at injectors.

After cranking the engine, break open the fuel line at the stainless steel manifold compression joint over the injectors with two wrenches(17mm? ).

Using a shop cloth to stop spray covering everything... you should get fuel comming out under pressure ...allow to stop weeping fuel and clean up any wet fuel.

Close fuel line and crank engine again.

Repeat...if fuel does not spray out pump is not pumping.

1990 geo storm wont start, no fuel, no stored codes.


can you hear the fuel pump when you turn the ignition key to start position??( you should hear it start then stop after few sec.) If not, this could be the fuel pump fuse,some bad contact in the wiring of the fuel pump or the worst case the computer.but if you do,unplug your main fuel line to the injector turn the switch to start position again to see if you have some fuel coming out.if not this could be the fuel filter or the fuel pressure switch! hope this will help you...lipak!..

1990 Ford F150 won't start/Sometimes will start


We are having similar problems. My husband replaced the fuel pump, fuel regulator and now it cranks but dies when you give it a lot of gas. He thinks the fuel injectors are stopped up. I read where one guy replaced the computer and fixed it and another one replaced the EEC. Check the relay contact and clean and check all grounding wires.
