I change the motor in my 96 dodge 1500 now it won't start acts like its not getting gas


You would need a voltmeter to diagnose the fuel pump circuit. Or you could put a fuel pressure gauge on the shrader valve test port to check fuel pressure. Just turning the key to on should cause the pump to run for 2 seconds, putting pressure in the lines and at the fuel rail and injectors. Now the pressure should show pretty high, often over 50 psi for multi port injection. Can you hear the hum or buzz of the pump running for 2 seconds with key turned to on? One test is to spray some starting fluid into the throttle (air) intake and see if engine fires on that. If it tries to run then, well sure enough it wasn't getting gas. Now you'll have to check the fuel pump and circuit.

My 2005 Kia Sedona won't start - I don't think it's the battery.


If the battery is low on charge (but not dead) then the sound should be a fast clicking of the voltage regulator. In this case no power is sent to the starter so the car engine will not turn over. All you hear is the fast click.
You mention a high-pitched quiet buzz sound. All I can think of is the electric fuel pump but that is in the fuel tank. There can be be a whine/buzz when starting the car because the fuel pump needs to pressure up the system. However, if the battery/starter are good then the engine would turn over, but with no fuel...it would not start if the fuel pump is bad.
If the car is a manual...you might try putting it in gear and rocking the car a bit to see if the starter somehow is jammed

Once in awhile it won't start , wait about 20 minutres and it starts........... 2005 chevy MC Supersport, Supercharghed


Your problem may be one of the following:
First check or just replace the fuel filter. Usually located under the car in front of the rear axle, drivers side.
Next, the fuel pump may be worn out. Usually they get loud or stop working (running).
Next, check the fuel pressure regulator. Usually located on the front fuel rail, drivers side.
Is the vacuum line attached? Not leaking or rotted?
Also, do you smell a strong fuel odor when it won't start? May be one or more stuck-open injectors, or the coil pack is bad.
Checking these in the order listed will more than likely fix your problem.
The clicking noise indicates the battery can no longer run the starter, which also means the fuel pump won't run either.

It could be a fuel issue. How old is the fuel filter? Can you hear the pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key on? Try turning the key to ON without trying to start engine three times waiting for the pump to stop running each time. Then try to start the engine. If it starts, Its a form of Vapor lock caused by the extreme heat we have had lately, and a weak fuel pump.

If none of this works, try a new fuel filter first. From there have someone check the fuel pressure regulator and then the pump. If you are in need of a new pump, take my word for it and spend the money to get one from a Dealer, and not from your favorite parts store. Most parts store parts are made in China and they are JUNK.

Motor turns over won't start. Cleaned terminals, put in new battery, still won't start. Removed gas cap to vent air on hot day, still won't start. Lights all come on, all electrics appear to...

My 99tahoe died a few miles from home replaced fuel pump filter still would not start found some burnt wires by exhaust manifold replaced them still no start


You need to test the fuel pump by doing a pressure test with a pressure gauge. You can remove your gas cap and have a helper turn your key to the run position not start position and listen to see if you can hear the pump buzzing. If you don't hear a buzz then there is a problem in the circuit. Even if you hear a buzz you should still check the fuel pressure as it may be buzzing but not making enough pressure. check all related fuses and fuel pump relay and wire connections at the pump. The pump is in the fuel tank and will have to be dropped down to replace the pump.

Started it this morning to worm it up and it ran for abit and died its got spark wont start


You need to check the fuel pressure. Can your hear the fuel pump buzzing? Remove your gas cap and have a helper turn the key to the run position. With your ear close to the open tank you should hear the pump buzzing. If not you have a fuel problem. Could be the pump, pump relay, or wiring. If you hear it buzzing you still need to check the fuel pressure because a pump can buzz but still not be making enough pressure. That is where I would start.

2002 DODGE INTREPID 2.7, HAVE TO PUMP TO START, ONCE STARTED WILL NOT REV UP WITHOUT CUTTING OUT. FOUND DATE ON VALVE COVER 06-18-03 IF ENGINE HAS BEEN SWAPPED COULD IT BE CRANK SENSOR?


Sounds more like fuel pump. No residual pressure for start up and high resistance in motor windings to keep it pumping.
Get a pressure tester hook it up to schrader valve on fuel rail before cranking and measure residual pressure. Next crank engine and let it run and see what running pressure is. Compare it to spec's.
Quest way to check pump is to put key in ignition turn just to on position .You should hear the pump buzz.

I JUST INSTALL A GOOD ENGINE ON A 2004 V6


The ECU controls the firing of the injectors based on the position of piston and valves which the Cam and Crank sensors report to the ECU.
Your saying the pump works(b+ at the pump and its buzzing) but there is no residual pressure to start the vehicle and you don't know if the pump can produce the pressure needed to keep the vehicle running.
Well fuel pressure testing is dangerous.
So I'll start with making sure B+ is making it to pump and its buzzing.If pump buzzes then use a fuel pressure gauge and attach it to the schrater valve on the fuel rail and test its residual pressure. Use shop manual to determine if you have the correct residule.
Then do whatever shop manual tells you to test for running fuel pressure.
If dealing with fuel is not your thing then take it to a repair shop. It's safer for one thing

I'm gonna call it at the pump cause if there is no residual pressure that means pump is defective and you will finish burning up pump trying to get the vehicle to start.

Truck don't start


When you turn the key to the "run" position, listen and see if you can hear a buzzing noise coming from the under the bed. This is your fuel pump buzzing for 2-3 seconds. If it isnt buzzing, you most likely have a faulty fuel pump. If it does buzz, check the fuel pressure. There is a schrader valve on the fuel line under the hood near the back of the intake manifold. You will need a fuel pressure gauge to check the pressure. If it doesnt build 50-60 psi, it will most likely, again, need a fuel pump.
