Crank but no start

Postby Badwolfe » Thu Jun 10, 2021 11:48 pm

Working on my mother's '92 Rodeo 5 Speed manual. After my nephew wrecked it we made repairs and it ran great for about 2 months, then randomly it would spit, sputter, and die after anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours of run time. Dropped the fuel tank cleaned it, replaced filters and now it won't start...getting plenty of gas & spark.

Which engine? This will make a difference diagnostic wise as the Isuzu 2.6 has a different system than the GM 3.1 V-6. Dennis

"Cranks but won't start". Now that we've established that it is a 3.1, what happens if you dump a little gas down the throttle body? Does it start and run for a second then? Dennis
