I would drain the tank and carb completely and allow to air dry for a day. Then get some fresh gas *(clean out the gas can too) and try it again. If the problem persists the carb probably has fuel flow issues. A stuck fuel float or obstructed needle/seat.

Fuel pump. The valve in the pump that stops the fuel from draining back into the tank is not working so you crank and crank until the fuel gets up front. Turn the key on but not to start for 5 seconds then off do it five times and then try to start it should start right up

Fuel pump works but no fuel in the fuel rail


can you hear the fuel pump run for 5 seconds when you turn the key to "ON"? Then it stops running until you turn the key to start. Do you have 40 PSI at the fuel rail?

Have you changed the fuel filter?

hi , if you have a compression tester use that to test for worn piston rings /scored cylinder , if not remove the exhaust and visualise the cylinder and check for scoring , remove the spark plug and block the hole with your thumb , it should feel nice and night when you pull the saw over , if it fails then you will need replacement rings and/or piston and cylinder .
hope this helps

Cold days car will start and run for 3 seconds and stall for 20-30 min until it starts and continues to run


The reason is that , the fuel line is out of fuel, so the running for 3 seconds is just the use of the trapped fuel in the injector line, after which it will stop. The solution is to on the ignition by turning the key without starting the ignition. this allows the fuel pump to release enough fuel into the fuel line and the injection system. Allow this for 5- 7 seconds, then start the car. It will run without interruption.

Car sometimes wont start changed coilpacksometimes good other times wont start at all


It could be a fuel pump issue, try turning the key to the on possition. Do you hear the fuel pump run? It should run for about 3-5 seconds then stop. There should also be a spot on fuel rail to check the fuel pressure.

Aprilia mx50 will kick over then stop after 5 seconds kick over again and will stop after 2 seconds, then wont start, leave for a few mins and will kick over and will run for 5 seconds and so on, any idea...


If your bike starts even for 5 seconds you should investigate your fuel delivery system.Check fuel pump,filter,try spray carb cleaners like Gum Out.Most importantly make sure your choke is working.You got your ignition (spark) it is most likely fuel related.Good Luck.

check the fuel filter it sounds like it's pluged and causing too much back presure this is causing an over load in the fuel pump causing it to stop working or to presure lock

My 1990 F150 will not start sometimes. If I turn the switch to the on position and the fuel pump continues to run after 5 Sec , It will not start. If the pump stop running after 5 Sec , it will start.


when u turn the key to run but don't start the fuel pump shuts off after 5 seconds + or - 2 seconds, this is normal, the common cause of no start on your truck is the TFI ignition module on the distributor, subject of many recalls for failing, also change the stator inside the distributor, use factory parts, aftermarket parts fail very quickly. here is a picture of the parts.

This is the TFI ignition module.
