92 Dakota, 3.9, automatic. Engine backfired, coughed, and died while driving. Acted as if it ran out of gas. Would not restart. Replaced fuel filter and electric fuel pump, still no start. Any ideas?


Make sure you have spark. Crank sensor is located at the back passenger side of the engine just infront of the the transmission bell housing, coil is on the side of the engine right next to the distributor, and also make sure that you do not have a broken ECU. I had one once that I fought an intermittent problem with dying for no apparent reason. Truck would usually fire right back up, but would die at unrelated intervals. Ended up being the center plug on the ECU. Took two replacement ECUs to get one that was good as the first replacement had the same issue of being broken on the center plug in.

1991 ford tempo ran fine went to store it started fine and then just died


Likely a gas or spark problem. Spray starting fluid into the air intake while cranking it. If it then runs for a few seconds, it's a fuel problem-maybe the fuel pump, filter, or injector circuit. Check if gas is getting up to the engine.
Buy an inexpensive "spark tester" at a parts store, and check for spark- if no spark, the ignition circuit will need diagnosed- could be the ignition coil, maybe the electronic ignition module-several possibi9lities. Let me know what you find, or if other questions..

1991 Camaro RS v-6 will start but dies almost immediately


Keep it simple and replace the fuel filter first, if thr fiiler has not been replaced within 30,000 miles or 1 year. Then it's a good chance that it's going to be the fuel filter.

My 1990 v6cheyv lumina will start and idol


I'm assuming you replaced the filter?? Test fuel pressure at the rail. Could be other issues that need testing, losing spark for some reason, injectors failing? Hopefully someone knows of acommon issue for more help.

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!

Vihicle died won't start


My 92 Subaru would not start. New rotor, cap, replaced fuel filter. No gas getting to filter. When gas trickled in carb, runs like a top. I think the fuel pump out.
