Does the engine keep running once you start it with gas or starter fluid, or does it stumble for a bit and then die again?

It definitely sounds like there's no fuel getting through. Try disconnecting the fuel line with the engine off and routing it to a container, then try starting the car and see if any fuel is flowing.

If it is, there is likely a wiring problem to the injectors, which could indicate the injector fuse is blown. You could try jumpering the positive wire from the injectors directly to the battery and try to start the engine (obviously with the fuel line hooked back up!)- the negative is switched by the engine computer.

If there is no fuel flow at all, then check the fuel pump fuse. Again, you can try jumpering a wire from the battery to the positive fuel pump terminal and see if that starts the engine.

If there is very little fuel flow, it is likely a restriction in the lines or a defective pump. I would check the fuel filter, and perhaps blow out the fuel lines with compressed air. If that doesn't help, or if there isn't any restriction, then it comes down to a bad pump.

The diaphram can tear, but when this happens it typically leaks gas into the crankcase. Is there gas in your oil? If no, recommend you take the float bowl cover off and see what's going on when you start it. Please let me know if you have more questions.

My 2000 GMC Jimmy cranks but wont start unless i try repeatedly or pour fuel into the intake , then it runs fine until i let it sit for hours and then the sameproblem occurs... any ideas info. or know how...


Hi, had same problem with my truck. you need to replace your fuel pump because it no longer holds the pressure in your fuel rail. If you cycle your ignition on and off multiple times(this will cycle the fuel pump relay) with out turning over the engine then start it normally, that is the problem.

1989 truck stalls when hot.


Have you chg. fuel filter? If so, best to do a fuel pressure test, sometimes( not always) when the pump gets warmed up they can loose a little pressure and thats all it takes just a few # under recamended p.s.i and the truck quits running, you may hear the pump run but its not putting out the correct pressure until it cools down and it starts working again, but after a while quit all together.
