I’m sorry if this question has already been asked and solved. I spent an hour searching the forum before I posted this.
I have a Mazda B2200 pickup that I purchased new in 1992. I stopped driving it regularly when my wife and I had our second son and I purchased a Subaru station wagon. I have a friend who needs a car and I would like to give him the truck. It has been almost two years since I have driven it.
I charged the battery and sprayed starting fluid in to the carb. It started immediately and died when the starting fluid ran out. I repeated the process over and over until the battery died again. I pulled the fuel filter and the line from the pump, they were both dry. I ran my fingers along the fuel line from the firewall to the tank and didn’t find a leak.
What should I look at next? Should I pull the fuel pump? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
