Did you replace the fuel pressure regulator?
More Information for STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS PR186 Hard starting can be caused by a failing pressure regulator, and being able to start the car by putting fuel into the intake would be an indicator that you have a fuel delivery problem.

SOURCE: engine turns but won't start

No.: TSB-07-11-001
DATE: January, 2007
MODEL: 2002-07 Lancer 2.0L

The engine may be hard or impossible to start and MFI DTC P0335 and possibly P0340 may be stored due to abnormal wear to the camshaft position sensor support. Oil grooves have been added to the camshaft position sensor support to improve lubrication

SOURCE: Where is the fuse & relay switch for the fuel pump located.

Locate the fuse box. Facing the engine, the box is located on the the right fender. The fuel pump fuse should be labeled, The fuel pump relay is Incorporated in the FI relay located under right center of dash. It is a metal relay usually bolted to the floor near the ecm. Good luck and hope this helps but first replace the the fuel filter since it's the easiest thing to do.

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump relay at on my 2002

relay is the problem if it dies in seconds after starting. Mitsubishi will show you exactly were it is if no body else does. Sorry I do not work on this model although all cars have a fuel pump relay and operates the same way

Car not starting

pressure guage should stay after you turn-off the ignition switch. check also if your engine has a cold start injector. it may be restricted.

I ran my 2006 chevy uplander out of gas now it wont start even using starter fluid

after putting some gas in your tank, step on the gas pedal repeatedly (step to it fully), then while pressing, start your car. the fuel was completely drained from your system thus there are no fuel to burn in able for your car to start.

pressing the gas pedal repeatedly (around 10 times will do) will put some fuel in your combustion chamber, so the car will now have something to burn if you will start the car

I recently put in 1 gallon of diesel fuel in my car when it was almost empty and then later had an accident and car . slid in ditch but no impact. Yesterday it started after putting alittle gas in but...

Let me understand; put diesel fuel in a car designed for gasoline? If so your looking at a whirl of other issues. Diesel fuel is not as combustable as gasoline and requires much more compression (almost double) then a gasoline vehicle, also diesel fuel is more oily and will gel up in cold temps which is why there is a heater on the motor to warm the fuel before entering the combustion chamber and third the engine needs to be pre warmed (glow plugs) to help ignite the diesel fuel. I would start by flushing the engines fuel system/tank and hopefully the injectors/fuel pump werent damaged/clogged. Its prob smoking because the fuel isnt igniting 100% and its like burning oil, it doesn't combust/explode like gasoline it just burns black due to incomplete combustion.

Best test,,NAPA sells a combustion leak tester(balkamp #700-1006) A tube of liquid that will change color if combustion gas is in the cooling system.Thinking you may be right about a head gasket problem or possibly a crack in the head.
It comes with instructions and is cheaper than having a shop guess at the trouble.

It sounds like oil is getting past the rings. you can check the compression on each cylinder to see what one it is, or pull the spark plugs out and check each one you should be able to tell if oil is getting in the combustion chamber. If it is just the rings it wont be cheap to fix but the sooner the better.
