Your gas could be bad from sitting for 4 months. If you can get it started again, try running the gas down as low as possible and fill up with 90 octane (premium) gas and a can of gas treatment. This is the easiest thing to check 1st. If it continues, could be your fuel pump going bad.

2000 ford 4.0 explorer cranks but fails to start. It acts like it starts after sitting all night but then only cranks, what is wrong?


Check for spark to the sparkplug. Try a shot of starting fluid as having gas pumping and having the fuel injectors opening are 2 different things. If you have spark, then the fuel injectors may not be working. Quick diagnosis is to use starting fluid and see if engine tries to run. This indicates problem is not lack of spark but lack of fuel getting into cylinders.

2000 Ford explorer has been sitting for 6 months. Nothing wrong with it. Replaced batter today, and it turns over just fine, but won't start. Has gas. Was running just fine until it got parked for...


Have you put a fuel pressure gauge on the fuel rail,
to check for pressure?
Do you hear the fuel pump running, when you
cycle the key?
Did you check for spark?

I think when you asked the question,
you knew the answer

2000 oldsmobile bravada, won't start. I replaced


This sounds familiar to me. I assume you replaced the fuel filter, if not, do so. Anyway, the same thing happened to be and I made it to the garage somehow and they said it was the pump, located inside the tank. 3 days later I picked it up and paid $350.00. It happened again a month later and I had it towed home ( the service garage changed hands and would not honor warranty). I unbolted and unstrapped the gas tank with a jack under it. The gauge said 1/4 tank so I figured on 40 lbs of fuel plus the tank.....wrong.... The tank was empty and the fuel pump had never been replaced. I has just never run my tank down that low before, so I had no way of knowing the gauge/float was miscalibrated. You never know....

"01 Mustang has been sitting for 2 mos, turns over, won't start?


gasoline will go bad! if you plan to store your vehicle use something like "STA-BIL" to prevent this. you may need to remove the gas that is in it and replace it with some that is fresher.

Car dies if accelerator is not engaged


the starting problem could be head gasket if it got really hot..... black smoke wouldn't be oil, and gas would stink but not black smoke if it's old, it wouldn't really matter if it had been sitting for 4 months. black smoke is probably caused by a gas mixture problem, or maybe a stuck fuel injector.
