Electrical problem My truck started right up last week. This week I tried to start it and it did not turn on. I checked the fuses and they were good. I replaced the fuel pump relay and the fuel pump, and still did not start. I checked if there was current going to the fuel pump, there was no current. I put starting fluid and it started right up just for a second. What else can I check for I can get current to the fuel pump?

My 1990 toyota tercel will not start. I took the starter in to get checked and it was good. It has spark, I checked all the fuses and they were good. It is turning over so its not the fly wheel or the timing belt. Now im left with fuel, it is carbureted and it has a mechanical fuel pump. My questions are, could it be the mechanical fuel pump or a relay and if so what are the proper steps on checking a relay? I have an ohm meter but I dont have a repair manual. Please help me.

When it won't start, I checked and there is no power to the fuel pump (all fuses and relays are good). Any suggestions would b

!987 toyota celica , wont start. So I was driving down the road and all of a sudden I stalled and could not get it going again. I thought that it would be the fuel pump, so I looked into it. It was makeing no noise, so I by passed everything and I could hear it running. I've checked all my fuses and they are all good. The car will turn over but just won't start, even with the the fuel pump running. Any ideas?


Generally it makes sense to check fuel and fire first. assuming you did not just dump some water into the gas tank you could pull a spark plug and have a compatriot turn the engine over while you hold the spark plug next to the block and see if there ... 1987 Toyota Celica
