SOURCE: lexus es300 won't start

I had a similar experience just the other day, i stopped to get gas and turned the car off and when attempting to turn the car back on nothing would happen. Well, let me rephrase the lights inside and out would work as well as the ac and the radio. My initial train of thought was maybe it was the battery so i went and purchased a new battery which was around $100, I installed the new battery and the car still wouldn't start. Does your car make a clicking noise when you turn the inginition key or is it just silent? If it is silent, you might want to check to see if your starter has burned out. Luckly a friend of a friend does his own mechanical work and was able to remove and replace the starter for me. After the starter was replaced the car started right up and ran perfectly. Not sure where u live but in my area a starter ranges in price from $100-200, but they also charge a core fee ranging from $45+, which can be reimbursed if you bring in your old starter to the store. I would suggest getting a starter with a lifetime warranty as well, but thats just a suggestion.

Hope this helps,

SOURCE: no power getting to the fuel pump

Check the wires and plug on the fuel pump have a good connection.When you removed the pump you probebly moved the wires making a contact and it worked.So check them out and good luck.

Ive got a 1985 toyota camry and it wont start, carb. cleaner will get it running 4 a little while,no gas getting to injectors. good fuel pump had it tested efi fuse i cant find. ??? can anyone help t

Try the fuel pump relay, and if you know for a fact that you fuel pump is functioning ok replace the fuel filter seeing there is no gas going to the injectors. Other that that I think it might be you fuel pump.

As gasoline sits idle for that length of time, it turns into shellac.
this in turn plugs up the orifices in the carb, use a good quality carb cleaner, or fuel injector cleaner as the case maybe. follow the directions carefully. You may have to do this a couple of times.
Good Luck

92 VW Jetta ran great one day and wouldn't start again. Daughter ran it out of gas, changed the plugs, put gas and gas line anti freeze still nothing. thinking fuel filter, are there 2 filters? and where...

First, you should Make sure that is the problem. Usually if your filter is clogged enough to kill the car, if you wait 10 to 15 minutes the car will restart. The fuel will eventually seep thru the filter. You more likely have a relay or fuel pump problem if it is fuel. Try removing the air filter and spraying carb cleaner into the intake, if it is a fuel problem, it will start. If it is a spark problem it will not. Most vehicles have a filter inline about half-way between the tank and the engine underneath the car. If you jack the car, trace the 2 lines from the fuel tank tds. the engine. There will probably be a cover to protect the filter.

Tries TO TURN OVER but won't start. There is gas,

Pump and filter are located in the tank ( filter and regulator are piggy back on top of assembly and generally can be removed without dropping tank).Check on frame rail near l/r tire sometimes filter will be there also. Try spraying carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking...this will verify if fuel is or isn't there... If starving for fuel it will start when spraying.

Try to start my 95 dodge dakota and it won't start

dont take carb off, drain fuel from tank if you got bad gas, fill with good gas, pull fuel line off carb and turn on key if have electric fuel pump, this will clean out line. get a spray can of carb cleaner from auto store and spray carb. hook up fuel line and try to start, should clean out carb with fresh fuel

1988 Volvo 740 cold condition, started short, cannot start again

Check the fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay first, before replacing the fuel pump. The fuses and relays are behind the the ash tray, The fuses are labelled. The relay is on the left side of the relay rack, closest to the big round bulb out sensor. But before that, how about pouring some gas line anti-freeze or fuel injector cleaner into the tank?
