Question about 2001 Chevrolet Tracker

2 Answers

2001 tracker I appreciate your thought, I did put fuel injector cleaner in 2 weeks ago, do you really think the air filter would cause this problem? It did it again an hour ago, this time i was at a stop sign when it started sputtering so i pulled over and it sputtered and shook then died. What about idle position sensor? Already spent 1000 dollars to fix this problem with no luck. Thanks, barb 352

You could try another fuel filter and some heavy duty injector cleaner. A garage would use a product that hooks into the fuel line and skips the gas tank to clean the injectors. The PS fluid could have also gummed up the fuel pump in the tank.

Wont start unless I spray starting fluid into air cleaner. run great after that but if you turn it off you have to use starting fluid again . have put new wires plugs rotor cap distb. capand K&N...


A poor spray pattern in the injectors can cause starting issues. Have you tried a good (read not really cheap) fuel injector cleaner like Chevron Techron or Valvoline Synpower fuel system cleaner? A weak ignition system (worn spark plugs, leaking wires) can cause starting issues. You mentioned that it has a K&N filter on it. These filters use an oil in a cotton media to filter out dirt. Sometimes that oil can get out of the filter and contaminate the mass air-flow sensor. Follow the air tube after the filter box and you'll find a sensor in the tube with several wires running from it. It is made from aluminum and the wire housing is plastic. Remove it from the tube and clean it with a mass air-flow sensor cleaner. You HAVE to use a mass air-flow sensor cleaner specifically made for mass air sensors. Don't use anything else like carb, brake, or throttle body cleaner. Those cleaners will leave a residue on the sensor and just cause you more issues.

As for your fuel pressure, the system pressure with the key on, engine off is 60-66 psi. Do you really think you could visually tell the difference between 60 psi and 40 psi? I know I couldn't. You'll have to use a fuel pressure gauge to verify the pressure. For my money, I think your pressure is low. But, cleaning the MAF is much easier then putting a tester in, and it wouldn't hurt, so I would do that first.

it could need a fuel injector cleaning or replacement if an injector has a problem.check the air filter as i`v seen them so plugged to cause this type of problem.there could also be a problem with the throttle position sensor(tps)not sensing the proper voltage increase when moving the throttle.i guess you installed a new fuel pump not a used pump but sometimes even a new pump is defective and the fuel pressure and volume should be checked.it`s also possible the catalytic converter is plugging up and needs to have the exhaust back pressure checked.at idle the pressure should be less than 1lb pressure and at 2,000 rpm`s should be less then 2.how dirty was the filter when it was replaced it could need changing again if there is alot of dirt in the fuel system.

06 Hyundai Azera error code p0300, car ran rough at first then ok , check engine came on, Dealer put fuel injector cleaner in it. had problem a year ago and dealer said problem was accellerator pedal...


P0300 is a random misfire detected, and it would cause me to do a good tuneup-clean the throttle body, air filter, fuel filter, plugs, plug wires (if it has them), oil change (just because)-fuel injector cleaner is voodoo and the dealer proved that he did not know what was wrong when he did that in my opinion-while there is nothing wrong with throwing in a bottle of injector cleaner once in a while, it is NOT going to fix a misfire problem-that is probably an ignition issue that may be confounded by a bad fuel filter/air filter or leaking injector o-ring.

check for water in the fuel filters and drain them accordingly also check the fuel heater circuit in the fuel filter hosuing to make sure it is working and not shorted check the glow plug relay to mae sure its functioning correctly also

Dodge cummins won't start, fuel reaching injector pump but no fuel coming out of injector pump.


You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?
