Then turn it on when it starts to run out of gas. I believe the additional fuel is flooding it. How do I compensate for this problem? Since the injectors regulate the fuel flow to the motor it's not likely the fuel line update is causing your problem. Possibility of a manfunctioning injector IACV or air restriction on the intake side.,,,

2005 Buick Century starting issues

Try turning the key on an off several times . There is a check valve inside the fuel pump module that is suppose to keep pressure in the fuel lines . This check valve being bad could cause this problem . When you first turn the key on the PCM - engine computer energize's the fuel pump for two seconds to prime the system , but if the check valve is bad ,2 seconds isn't enough . If that doesn't do anything your best to have scan data viewed like in these videos . 011 Fuel System Tests Fuel System Scan Data

1996 dodge dakota, used bad fuel, won't start

Pump the tank dry of the fuel using the electric fuel pump, just jump the fuel pump relay to get the pump to run and remove the supply line to the injectors and attach a hose. Use extreme caution around gasoline, no sparks, ground the container to the truck.

Hello: 1st, pumping the accelerator on a fuel injected GM car does NOT do any good. In fact if you put the accelerator to the floor you put the system in the lean mode ie, reduce fuel. You will need a fuel pressure gage and there should be a schrader valve on the fuel lines/fuel rail where you can connect the fuel pressure gage. The fuel pressure should be about 10 psi if you have throttle body injection. Is your car a 4 cylinder? If its a 4 cylinder you may not have a schrader valve to connect the pressure gage. You will need a high dollar kit to tap into the fuel line. Have someone attempt to start the car and you remove the air cleaner an see if the injector is spraying fuel.

check to see if you can hear the fuel pump hum when you turn the key to the run position. It should run for about 5 seconds then shut off. If not then the fuel pump may have siezed due to the lack of fuel. Have someone slap on the fuel tank with an open hand while you turn the key to the run position. This may free up the fuel pump.

Hi my xj650 has a hard time starting its like its not getting any gas but once i get it to start it will run only for a moment and then shut off


It sounds like you have bad gas in your fuel system. If your bike sat for a while, you will need to drain, and clean, the carb bowl(s) (turn off the fuel valve before doing so), check the fuel filter for any blockage (replace if necessary), and then add Sta-bil to your fuel tank. This will stabilize the remaining fuel in your tank. With today's fuel having Ethanol added to it, the fuel gunk's up quicker.

Turn the fuel valve back on and start your bike - run a full tank through the fuel system. After a full tank is used, get a bottle of SeaFoam and add the recommended amount to your fuel tank when filling up. The SeaFoam will clean your fuel system and your bike will run better. Use Sta-bil when your bike is not going to be used for a while and use SeaFoam every other full tank - if you are not going to use a Premium fuel with no Ethanol added.

Hope this helps.

Ok the day b4 the check engine light came on i started it, and the brake fluid had been leaking so i added some and i was pumping brakes and when pressing the brakes i saw that the fuel gauge was moving...

Did you bleed the brakes after you added fluid? If you got air in the lines then they need to be bled.
After bleeding them then we can reset the computer and see if that will fix it. Just take the negative battery cable off and then turn the key to on position. Turn the headlights on and radio and heater. This will drain any reserve electricity saved in the system. Wait 30 minutes and turn everything back off including the key and lights. Reconnect the cable making sure you can not turn the end with your hands after tightening it.
Then go ahead and see if it will start up. This is only one trick and may not do the trick so let me know but please don't hold it against me and leave a bad mark if it doesn't fix it. There are 500 different this that can set these things off. I am only starting where you left off with the brakes. Keep me informed, The Raz

Mirage sat idle for 4 month, turns over, gas tank was full, starts with starter fluid but stops in a sew seconds. any ideas?

Igood t sounds like water in the carb, (if it has one) or water in the fuel filter. Remove the fuel line from either the carb or injection system, turn the engine over until you get pure fuel through the line. reconnect, spray the starter fluid and it should go, it will osund rough, but a few good blips on the throttle, should clear the line. Let me know, if that doesn't work I have a few more things to try. Regards Dave

Fuel pump not running only in cold weather

Pumping the pedal on an injected engine does nothing, except varying the air intake amount. I would change the fuel filter (if badly plugged, it may be causing the pump to shut off early) and clean the idle air control valve.(which should regulate idle air flow, eliminating the need for playing with the pedal) The valve itself is not difficult to service, but is a bit delicate. It can be cleaned with carb cleaner. just make sure you do not turn the valve end around while cleaning, and re-install it perfectly straight. You may have a bad drain back valve in the pump, but this is less common than what I outlined above.(there are tests for this)
