truck wont start

Asked by May 04, 2016 at 08:54 PM about the Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I bought my truck 84 dodge ram they were
spraying carb cleaner/starting fluid to start it. I
changed the fuel filter and a hose that ran from the
carborator. But it still wont fire up. Turns over but
nothing. Don't know what to do. Spraying the carb
cleaner into the carb doesnt make it start anymore

Might want to check the fuel pressure, check/replace the fuel pump if no or low pressure and more then likely rebuild the carburetor and set it up properly.
