Car won't fire

check your fuses as a start then check relays and then fuel pressure because the filter could have only 1000 miles on it and have problems with it and it could also be the coil pack died on it .

sounds like the regulator is vapor locked. turn everything off, tank, any switches on unit itself, any valves.everything. now disconnect the gas tank. let sit in the sun for a bit, so we cant get you going quicker. start at to tank, reconnect that. now follow the manufactures specs for operation.

I have a spc-40 heater i can not get it to stay fired up i press the fuel button and it does lite but after 15 to 20 i release button and it goes out what do i need to do to make it work again

Ensure all your connections are tight and not leaking. I would shot off the tank using the valve on the top. Disconnect it, then re-connect it. Once connected, ensure the fan on the unit starts to turn. Then you can slowly open the valve, give it a good 4-5 turns to ensure it is open. They try the ignition sequence again.

Sounds like the igniter needs to be replaced. It is normal for a heater to run five or so minutes that means the thermostat is working. then restart when the temp calls for heat but if the igniter does not work it will not light up again.
