96 toyota camry. Replaced fuel pump, strainer and filter. Will crank if you spray starting fluid in it, but wont run. Any ideas?


Check for spark. Start at the coil, spark at the plug, Could be the coil or crank position sensor. Check codes.

Turn on heater, it does not ignite, but the fan kicks in and sprays fuel out the front


It sounds like you either have a bad ingitor or bad ignitor adjustments. I'd suggest calling a service tech.

Not sure what type heater you are asking about. If oil furnace, then the igniter rods need to be resharpened and adjusted into proper alignment.

Heater will not start


Does the blower motor start when you plug it in/turn it on? It may take around 5 seconds if your heater has a HSI(hot surface igniter). If it does you need to check the igniter and the fuel flow. Either way, remove the top of the heater. You will be able to see the fan, igniter, and fuel nozzle. Turn the fan by hand to see if it turns freely. If it does, watch out for the fan and turn the heater on. Look for the igniter to start sparking (spark plug type) or glowing (HSI type). Next, use a flashlight to look for fuel spraying from the nozzle. If fuel isn't spraying, try cleaning the fuel nozzle and check the fuel filter. Watch out for the HSI, if you have one, they are very brittle and easily broken. If you still don't have fuel flow after cleaning the nozzle and the fuel filter, you may have an air pressure problem. Let me know and I will tell you how to check it. Don't forget to rate the answer if it works.

I have a 60,000 btu kerosene heater its getting fuel and the glow plug turns on but still wont fire up n shuts down. what would cause this?


Well it is getting fuel but is it atomized in very small droplet form? If so is your igniter close enough to ignite the fuel? You see these spray a very fine conical mist under high pressure, if the mist is not defined or conical it sprays past the igniter. If it is fine and cone shaped it could be the positioning of your igniter. Please check both by removing the top section of the heater and watch what is going on in there. My thoughts are a bad nozzle and if you replace it pay attention to spray angle and GPH rating printed on the side of the nozzle.

Our Troy bilt lawn tractor wont start. It seems like a short


Unless something catastrophic has happen internally, fuel and spark are about all you need. If you are sure of the fuel supply, pull the spark plug lead and let it arc to ground so you can check ignition health. You should have a bright blue spark visible. If you do, then pull the plug and replace it; the insulator may be cracked and robbing some of the high voltage. If it still doesn't start, you may have flooded it and when this happens to me, I make sure no spilled gasoline is present but I then pull the plug and use a charcoal or fireplace lighter and place it in front of the sparkplug hole. It should pop and help exhaust the excess fuel.
