was having some problems getting car to start even though batery was good a jump usually got it going now i am parked on a slope leaning away from where gas goes in and it acts like its out of gas
it acts like its out of gas even though its not. to be sure I put 3 gallons in...its not out of gas please give me an idea how to prime the system i'm a female trying to do this on very limited budget so taking it for service is out of the question but I need my car for work tomorrow
is the battery good? if you had to jump it it couldn't be too good? If you are SURE the battery is good and SURE there is enough fuel then check all the fuses and relays especially the starter and fuel pump relays. if they are good then try some carb cleaner in the air intake. you may have to open up the air box where the filter goes to get it in there. carb cleaner acts like starting fluid, but is safer for your engine. If the engine runs on carb cleaner then it is probably not getting fuel. at that point it would be a good time to replace the fuel filter. It gets a little tougher here. you should probably check the fuel pressure it requires a gauge that you don't have, so you would have to get this done. if there is no pressure you might have a bad fuel pump. If the car doesn't start or fire with the carb cleaner then you probably have an electrical/problem. you would then have to check for spark. I know it sounds like a lot, hope this helps.
