Hello and welcome to Just Answer!
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assist you with your question
Are you saying that the engine has stalled out but does not restart?
Does the engine crank over and not start?
Or does it not crank over at all?
What size engine do you have?
yes I tried some starting fluid to see if was ingition or fuel and ran until the fluid was gone
So the engine must have spark when cranking it over correct?
the engin cranks fine but will not start
Ok, if it runs on starting fluid, then it has spark when cranking it over
Have you checked fuel pressure or injector pulse?
yes I was wondering if it could be a crankshaft or cam sensor with out throwing a code
If the engine has spark when cranking it over, then the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors should be working
no, I did not ,but seems to hapen at low throttle if it had no injector pulse it would set a code
it all depends on the situation
how did you check for codes?
with a good code reader
thank you for that information
If the engine runs on starting fluid, we know it has spark. This means we just have a fuel delivery condition
chances are you just have a bad fuel pump
it seems to happen more often when temp out side is high
that would make sense
in addition, this would not set a code in the computer
that is way I cant figer it out and that is why I changed the computer before and has not seemed to make a diferance
Ok, but if there is no fuel pressure, you might just have a bad fuel pump
this has nothing to do with the computer
That is why there is no codes
but if it fails to have fuel presure when engin is running it will set a code
there is no code for low fuel pressure
there is no code for low or no fuel pressure
so you think fuel presssure is the only thing it could be that would not set a code
and that fits with all the other systems
That is correct
the reason I ask is, it is on the road an I want to make sure I take all needed to fix it
I hear you and I agree
You are doing the right thing
Based on what your telling me, your fuel pump is bad and will need to be replaced
well thankyou and I will set out to fix it
