    you more than likely have water vapor in your gas tank and small amounts of water in your carburetors. drain tank, clean carbs and try again

Did you drain the fuel before storage and use new fuel
Check the spark plugs for spark and gap
Test injectors for spray flow
does the fuel pump prime when key is turned if not check pump wiring and fuel lines

I have a 95 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 and It will not start without putting some fuel into the throttle body. Once started it will run. But when you let it stand and cool off it won t start again. I have replaced...


The way you describe this problem the cause seems to be in the fuel system losing pressure. But even then, if you crank long enough it should start. Check your fuel pressure. It may be useful to check your fuel filter.

My car won't start I have changed the coil fuel pump fuel pump relay and the Mfi relay I now think its the crank shaft relay but I do not know help me !


Sounds like maybe the main computer is bad. When you cranked the engine there is not any indication that it is firing. If you have changed the fuel pump and coil and it still wont even fire, the computer is most likely the cause. Even if the timming was off you would still get some indication that it was trying to start although it probably would not if the timming was off, but the fact it's not even trying to fire yeah that's my take.

Car won't start without a jump but battery okay


wont crank or wont start.??
no car starts , if it cant crank. (unless push starter (M/T magic)
that is not a trans sensor its the PRN switch.
ill answer for, wont CRANK !
it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start
2: bad wires to same.
so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.
cranks. , starter good, no crank starter bad or cables bad.
if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.
easy, huh?

The colt won,t start when cold if it is plugged in for a half hour or more it starts fine.We have changed the two temperature sensors and checked the fuel pressure


ON A 92 MODEL CAR IT DOESN'T HAVE A CHOKE SO YOU ARE GOING THE RIGHT WAY BY LOOKING AT THE TEMP SENSOR. THE CHOKE ON A FUEL INJECTION MOTOR WORK THROUGH FUEL TRIMS. IN OTHER WORDS MORE FUEL THEN AIR THAT WOULD BE A RICH CONDITION THATS CHOKING THE CAR. SO IF YOU HAVE CHANGED THE TEMP SENSOR TO THE COMPUTER YOU MUST CHECK TO SEE IF IT IS WORKING RIGHT, TO DO THAT PLUG A COMPUTER IN AND READ DATA,IT SHOULD READ AT COLD START UP OUTSIDE TEMP.ONE MORE THING MAKE SURE THE VOLTAGE IS GOOD ON VEH BECAUSE IT TAKES LESS VOLTAGE WARM THEN COLD.AND IT WILL TURN OVER FASTER WARM. IF SO REPLACE THE BATTERY TO A HIGHER COLD CRANKING AMP BATTERY. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU TIM

10 year old Craftsman Lawn Tractor won't start


That's really strange. The low-speed fuel adjustment screw may be set way too rich, but that doesn't seem likely. With the air filter off, look at the choke plate if possible as you advance the throttle and see at what point the choke closes. Back it off till the choke opens and then put the filter back on and try to start it at that setting. Another thing that could cause too much fuel is if the adjustment of the carburetor float is off, causing the fuel level to be too high in the carb bowl.
