THE ENGINE WAS OVERHAUL AFTER THAT IT FAILING TO START JUST CRANKING BUT PROMISING ,THE SPARK IS THERE WHY PUTTING MORE FUEL ON THE PLUGS


Did you check for spark at more than one or two spark plugs? The spark is there, and the spark plugs are wet with gas? Is it flooded? Or is it getting too much gas? For a flooded engine, you know to open the intake valve wide open by holding the gas pedal to the floor, and cranking for up to 15 seconds? This will let a lot of air in and clear out most of the excess gas. Or have you tried this already?
Spark, gas, and compression: that is all that the cylinders need to run. In a well-timed engine, that is. A little gas/air mixture, then compression, then a spark is delivered and it runs. One of those three things is not right or missing for your engine not to start. Or you will have to recheck timing.

Ignition stop firing/engine floods w/ gas


Check for loose connections on your ignition system, mainly around the coil.

The engine won't run. fire and gas is good the engine only cranks.


If fire (ignition) and gas (fuel) is good, then you either have a distributor that is totally out of time or you have severe engine damage or wear. If you have proper ignition, fuel, timing and compression, the engine will run. One of these things is missing.

Starts but won't stay running, i clean carburator and still have same problem, unit has been used very little, still look new, Thanks,


Have you checked your oil? You need pump oil half way up in reservoir. Open plug on top of pump and check oil. Pump takes SAE 20 or 30

Next, open oil plug below engine and check your oil level. It should come up 1/2 way on dip stick. Engine takes 10W30. Don't turn washer on its side or upside down to drain oil or oil will run into carburetor.

Is the water turned on? Are you holding gun trigger open while starting? Pump needs water flow. DO NOT tie gun trigger open with wire and then start engine. That gun will flip around and shoot a hole in your leg.

If the engine starts, then you have gas, spark and compression

If engine won't stay running, the exhaust port might be clogged, or the carburetor is not letting in enough gas, or gas is not flowing to carburetor.

Check the screen over exhaust port > is it dirty or clogged? Clean with WD-40 or break it out with a screwdriver.
Remove gas filter below gas tank >>> it has a hex bolt >> loosen bolt >> the gas should come flowing out >> put it back if gas comes out
Next remove rubber gas line feeding gas to carburetor >> gas should flow out this line too >> if flows then put it back.

What about your air filter? Take it off. See if engine fires and runs without air filter. Air filter may be clogged.

While air filter is out, you can see open port to carburetor. Spray some WD-40 into carburetor. Fire up the engine. It should spark real healthy on the WD-40. Keep spraying WD-40 into carburetor to see if you can keep engine going. Don't forget to keep gun trigger open so water is flowing and pressure is not building in pump.

If engine keeps going with WD-40 but dies without it, then your carburetor is very suspect. You might need a new one.

If engine will not keep going with WD-40, then the spark is very suspect.

Change spark plug. Try again. If it doesn't fire up after that, you need to take it to the shop for repair.

I have a cadallic escadale. It will turn over but wont start.


The fuel pressure should be 60 to 65psi in your system with the engine not running and fuel line primed, (ignition key's to the run position). Once engine is running the fuel pressure should drop by 5psi, change the fuel filter and recheck the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. it's known for the fuel pump to fail when the gas tank runs low or out of gas, the pump will end up burning it self out since the gas is what keeps the electric fuel pump cooled. The other thing to is putting gas through the top of the throttle body to start the engine on the SEFI is a NO NO, well a BIG NO NO. it's been know for the gas in the intake to catch fire and burn up the poppet valve in the injection system causing the replacement of the fuel injection system. Keep me posted and good luck, be gald to help you get your truck running again for the july 4th. OH and it was not mentioned but did the fuel filter get replaced???
