Have you checked the fuel pump kickoff switch located in the trunk? It may have been tripped, even if the car was just bumped. It is usually located in the back of the trunk by the taillights, or hidden between the rear quarter panel and trunk hinge.

Wont start but fuel pump works n relays


Have you checked for spark? Also just because the fuel pump kicks on doesn't mean that it has enough pressure. It only operates within a small PSI window. Any check engine lights on?

My 95 lincoln town car will be fine and then all of a sudden I can't get it to crank. I have changed the fuel pump, the fuel filter, I have sparks because I got shocked. was taught a trick of pushing...


check all your rounds on the body, behind kick panels, and in engine compartment. The relays you hear clicking are the power relay whcih turns your engine computer on. The other relay is the fuel pump relay, which is turned on by the engine computer. start there, report back.

PS. When you press the gas pedal to the floor during cranking, it shuts off the fuel supply to clear a flooded engine.

My chevy C3500 4x2 diesel crew cab is turning over but wont start i checked all the fuses do u think it may be at fuel pump r a line stopped up or a senser


You need air, fuel, and spark to start your vehicle. It may be the fuel pump, filter, fuel pump fuse/relay. You should be able to hear the fuel pump kick on when you first turn your key. Fuel goes to the pump, filter, lines, and engine. If it is getting gas, you need to check for spark. Spark plugs/coil wires, distributor, dist.cap, cam sensor, ect. It can be anyone of them. Check for gas and spark.

1998 Dodge Caravan. engine dies and wont start. fuel pump was changed twice but i get a few miles & dies again & wont start. im thinkin fuel filter is plugged....


It might be your fuel filter. Also, Dodge and Chrysler is bad for fuel pump failures. A clogged fuel filter can cause this. Also, you might not be getting enough fuel pressure. There should be a test port on the van, where you can test the gas pressure. You also have a fuel pump relay or switch. This could be bad as well. Hope this helps you.

FUEL SYSTEM SHUTTING DOWN, RELAY KICKS IN AND OUT,REPLACED FUEL PUMP,ECM,DISTRIBUTION BLOCK,MULTIFUNCTION MODULE, CHECKED ALL THE GROUNDS I CAN FIND


check your wiring from relay to fuel pump commector. possible cause is 2wires rubbing together causing the relay to kick in and out. if your wiring checks out ok then the problem will be in the fuel pump trying to short out. use ohm meter and test light to check wiring and pump.

We have a 1991 gmc jimmy we want to know what would cause the fuel enjectors to not fire on cold start. but we prime the motor with a little gas the motor will start and the injector will start spraying...


It sounds like an air lock or a fuel pump issue. firstly get the filter changed and bled through this might help. if the problem persists check the pump.

How can i fix a clogged fuel pump on a 2001 chevy malibu. the fuel pump is working ( you can hear it hum when you turn the key) I removed my back set to make sure and the car will turn over but wont start....


Have you changed the fuel filter? Did it die while driving, or just wouldn't start? Don't use starting fluid on a gas engine! It will cause a lot more problems than it solves. Ether, starting fluid is made for diesel engines... not gas, not ever. If it won't start, it isn't lacking ether. It's lacking gas, air or spark.

1997 pickup wont start. fuel filter is ok and getting fuel up to just before carbrator


IT sounds like the fuel pump to me.You will have to put a fuel pressure gauge on it and see that it has more than 50 psi.The engine needs between 50 to 60 psi to even run.I think you should just change the fuel pump.
