1. remove the inlet to the back of the throttle bodies and spray starter fluid into the back of the inlets, then attempt to start it. If it attempts to start the fuel system needs cleaning, fuel pump isn't working, regulator issues, fuel injectors bad. or the ecm is not working. There are many things that can cause a fuel injection not to work but these are a few possibilities.

1998 to 2004 is carburators and 2005 up are fuel injected.

You can reset by disconnecting the battery for about half an hour, but the gaskets on the fuel system have been dry for a couple of months, and in turn have shrunk, this would cause the pressure to drop, and you may need to re-tighten all the screws on the feul pump, rail etc. Hope that helps!

it sound like your fuel shut off valve is bad and the needle valve and set may need to be cleaned.

Have 1995, check engine light came . It starts fine, but after 10 minutes it dies out , after a cool down period it starts up ?

REMOVE AND REPLACE ALL FUEL IN THE TANK, depressurize the fuel lines, and re-pressurize before restarting.
When sitting unused, fuel is only good for six months to one year, then begins to separate or accumulate moisture.

Black smoke from tailpipe, loss of power, anyone know?

What year, make and model car is this? Most likely, black smoke is
usually a carburator problem. If it's fuel injected, black smoke can be caused by 1) leaking or faulty fuel injecters, 2) faulty choke, 3)dirty air
filter or 4) faulty distributor cap and/or rotor. Hope this helps.

What casues the 07 Suzuki boulevard M50 to run rich. I put full synthetic in it last year and it shifted great but then started to run richer. Or is there some other explenation. Just turn 11k.

The motor oil shouldn't have anything to do with the air/fuel mixture.

What makes you think it's running rich? Your bike is fuel injected, and should self-regulate the air/fuel mixture.

My 2003 suzuki gsxr won't star has been sitting in the garage for three months without starting it cranks over pretty good, did I choke the engine with too much gas trying to start it?

Hi from Spain,

no way to choke this fuel injected bike in theory....but by my experience try to start the bike with fully open throttle several times, take care do not flat the battery, if the bike has not much fuel do not try with the bike on the side stand so the fuel cannot reach the fuel pump inlet.

1991 Jeep Wrangler has been sitting in a garage for 3 years. It starts and shuts right off. I spray ether in it and it starts then shuts back off again. It seems as though I am not getting fuel. What do...

im asuming it was running fine when it was garaged? if so, then the first thing you need to do is to drain the fuel tank and flush the fuel lines. when gas gets old, it simply wont ignite. and over that time, it thickens into almost a syrup. so you need to drain and clean the fuel tank, fuel lines, and replace the fuel filter. im not sure if that year jeep is carbureted or fuel injected, but if it has a carb., then that will definitely need to be cleaned. or for fuel injection, use a good fuel injector cleaner mixed with your new gas. once it starts, it wlil run a bit rough, but once the old fuel gets burned out of the system, it should gradually improve.
