Having problems with your 1985 Chevrolet Cavalier ?

I have A 1985 Chevy Cavalier, 4cly. I just replaced the Fuel pump and filter. Gas is getting to the fuel injector very well but the injector only dribbles at best.

\015 Is the injector controlled by the electrical system telling it when to spray if this is so can it be aiding the problem. The car was idioling high just prior to it dying. starts right up with starting fluid and of course\015

I have a 1991 mazda mpv 4 cycl that first thing in the morning was not cranking well, would take several tries to start and then finally would start. It acted like it wasn't getting any gas.

When I take the line off the regulator it spurts gas when trying to crank but still want crank. Now it want crank at all. What else can it be???

My 93 chevy lumina doesnt get gas into the cylinders. i think my fuel injectors have all stopped witch probably means that their is a fuse out, but i checked them all as well as checking all the fuel pressure up until the injectors. could their be a computer chip out?


Sounds like there is no driver signal to the injectors if they have fuel pressure and no fuse is blown. check the wire harness that feeds the injectors and see if its loose or damaged, and check that the connectors arent all corroded up inside. Use a ... 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

My 95 Pontiac Bonneville is not getting gas I've checked the fuel pump fuse, the fuel pump relay under the passenger side and replaced the fuel filter. Is there anything else that could cause the gas not to pump or should I take the gas tank off and inspect the gas pump? Also is there away to check if the gas pump is bad. All I know is that there is no pressure in the gas lines and that no fuel is getting to the injectors. Thanks in advance.


What you need to do is have an assistant turn the key on (not try to start, just turn the key on) while you have the gas cap removed and your ear down by the gas tank fill tube. When they turn the key on you should hear a whirl only for 3-7 seconds. ... 1995 Pontiac Bonneville

I ALSO HAVE A FUEL ISSUE WITH MY JAG XJ6.I CAN STILL HEAR THE FUEL PUMP WORK, BUT I'M NOT GETTING GAS TO THE BAR ABOVE THE INJECTORS. SO I REPLACED THE FILTER THAT IS BACK BY THE DRIVERS LEFT WHEEL. WHEN I TOOK THE OLD ONE OFF THERE WAS PRESSURE IN THE LINE. BUT EVEN WITH THE NEW FILTER (THE CORRECT ONE) I AM NOT GETTING FUEL TO THE INJECTORS. THE CAR STARTS RIGHT UP WITH STARTING FULID, SO IT HAS TO BE NO GAS. IS THERE A 2nd FILTER? OR SOMEWHERE ELSE I CAN CHECK?


There's no 2nd filter for JAG XJ6. You mentioned that the car starts right up, but did it die after a second or two? If yes, then: You need to check the "Block diode relay" and a "Inhibitor relay". But you need to consult a mechanic to ch ... Jaguar XJ6

My 02 Saturn Sl2 doesn't like to start sometimes if I let the gas get below a quarter tank and then fill it up. I know it's a fuel problem, I changed the filter and pump and cleaned the injectors. The only thing I can think of is that there is rust or dirt or something in the gas tank and when the gas gets low it is sucked up and stops the car from getting fuel. Usually after a few minutes and a few times starting the car and revving it works fine. My question is how much would it cost to pull t

My car started to die when idling about 3 weeks ago. Now it stops whenever I slow down. I tried fuel injector cleaner in 2 tanks of gas and also high octane gas. I smell a terrible odor of some " fuel" burning at times. Also people have noticed black smoke when I gun the engine trying to get it to restart again. Bad spark plugs, fuel injectors, electrical problem?


You may have dirty injectors, and the fuel tank additive wont fix it, you need to have a professional pressurized injection cleaning and possibily an intake plenum and throttle body cleaning, if you are not qualified save your self the headaches and ... 1996 Nissan Maxima

When I go to start my 1995 Geo prism it is very hard to start especially if it has been started 2 or 3 times before within a couple of hours. I can usually get it to start eventually but in the process have flooded it. It is getting increasingly difficult to get it to start even when it is cold. I have been using the Lucas fuel injector cleaner in the gas thinking it was dirty fuel injectors.

Just switched a dead fuel pump in a 1997 Ford Escort and changed the filter as well. But it seems like there is still no fuel getting to the injectors. I can hear the pump run but no fuel is getting to the injectors. I also tried quick start to but that did not work either. Any suggestions are appreciated


If it doesnt start with quick start then the problem is not fuel related. You have an ignition issue like a bad crans sensor or ignition module or even possible a blown fuse if you have a ECM or ING fuse ... 1997 Ford Escort

My 95 buick lesabre will not start , I have change to a new fuel pump and a new cam shaft sensor. The gas is getting to the fuel rail, I have spark on all six cylinders . If i spray gas in through the mass air the engine will start and run as long as i manually spray fuel. but it seems to me that the injectors or not getting a signal


Thee are a couple of things left to check. One is to hook up a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail and see how much pressure your getting and compare it to specs. It maybe getting fuel there but not enough pressure. To see if the injectors are being ... 1995 Buick LeSabre

I don't get any gas at the injector bleeder. is there a fuse for the fuel pump. It seem to act as if it was running out of gas one time. Then later started running again and now wont seem to get any gas to injectors. It sits alot. the truck is only used for off road driving now.


There is a fuel pump fuse but it is included in the ECM fuse. The fuel pump relay would be a good place to check if you can bypass the fuel pump circuit. if you can and it runs you may have a faulted ECM or ASD relay. let me know if you need more hel ... 1988 Jeep Comanche

I have a 2000 Hyundai Accent and when I press down on the gas the engine bogs down. I was getting an 1123 code and I replaced the upstream and downstream O2 sensors. This helped with it dieing at idle but did not fix it bogging when pressing the gas. The fuel filter did have a little resistance so I replaced it but still no help. I have not ruled out the pressure regulator, fuel pump, or fuel injectors. I am also getting some moderate blue smoke at startup. What should be my next course of actio

My daughter has a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLX. She called me and said the engine lost power while driving about 30mph. She pulled over, put it in park and tried restarting it. After a couple tries it started. She has had the car for 5 months and has never put premium gas. Do you think that it's the fuel injectors getting clogged? If so, will using premium gas and adding fuel injector cleaner fix this?

I have a VW Golf mk3 1995 GTI 16V but it has a weird iddleing whenever I have just started it. When I press the gas pedal more and increase the revs, it gets well. Otherwise if I happen to drive straight away away when I have just started it, it will kind of stall a bit( as if its lacking fuel or air), then after a few minutes of driving it gets well. At times I can even smell the fuel. Any help will be appreciated
