Not getting any Fuel

I start it it putters real bad and the shuts off. Can it be the fuel pump fuse? I think its the fuel pump but i would rather it be a 7$ fuse than a 200$ fuel pump. If you have any ideas as to how to fix it please let me know.

Check the fuse and relay for the fuel pump if they check out ok then its either the pump or the wiring.(heres a simple check to determine if the fuel pump is working or not...In a quiet area remove the fuel cap then have someone turn the key to run(not start) keep your ear close to the opening of the fuel filler neck and listen for a buzzing or whirring noise) another way to check for fuel is to remove the cap on the fuel pressure relief valve (with the key in the run position) depress the stem of the relief valve with a screw driver or a key (stand Clear!) if fuel spurts from the relief valve opening then your problem is elsewhere.
hope this helps.....Good luck!

Not getting fuel


Turn the key on to the on position and not start. Listen very closely. You should hear the fuel pump run for about 2 seconds. If not then the fuel pump is probably bad. I think that the Contour has a place in the trunk to access the fuel pump. If not, you have to drop the fuel tank.

Is the fuel pump located inside the tank on a 1989?


dont go replacing everything...thats gonna get expensive real quick...especially that fuel pump. yep...the pump is inside the tank. stand out side your truck,and turn the key over,but not enough to start it. you should haer a whirring sound lasting about 2-3 secs. come from the back of the truck. this is the fuel pump powering up. if you dont hear it...then the pump is bad. if you do hear it, have a friend turn the key while you look at the carb/injectors to see if fuel is spraying thruthem,if it isnt....then you have a clogged fuel filter. BUT...b4 you do any of this...check your fuel pump relay and fuse to make sure they are good. a 10 cent fuse beats a 200 dollar pump any day.
keep me posted!!

check fuel pump.
turn the key to on so the dash lights come on but don't start it, do you hear the pump energize? if you are unsure, have someone get down by the tank and listen. if it's not running, the fuse or the relay could be bad. and possibly the pump

2000 Toyota RAV4 has spark but will not start. Tried spraying starting fluid down air intake but it won't even give me so much as a putter. It doesn't have any alarms or security features.


Check your fuel pump.

The pump should make a sound when you turn ignition switch to the ON position. If not check "IGN" fuse and then "EFI" fuse located in the engine compartment fuse center.

Then also check the "EFI main relay"

Finally check the "circuit opening relay" which is activated if the vehicle is in a crash to shut off the fuel.

1998 mustang 3.8 v6 will not start.


First I would check the fuel shut off switch, push down on the red button, switch is located in trunk. Make sure you are getting fuel and fuel pump fuse is ok. You can remove fuel line from fuel filter and turn key on to see if fuel comes out of hose and also get a glass jar and take a fuel sample to see if anything is in fuel. Sounds like you may be having a fuel problem.

You might have killed your fuel pump. It's said that if you let the tank get too low or run the pump dry you can ruin it. I would see about getting a fuel pressure tester to check it.
