Engine won't start, turns over, but no fuel

Car does not start. It is not getting fuel. How do I locate first the fuel pump fuse, secondly the fuel pump relay, and third the fuel pump itself.
Is this a common problem for my 1999 Mercury Cougar

    We have a semilar problem with my daughters car The car will not start when the outside air is colder than freezing. It will turn over but will not start for 10-15 min. After we let it set for 10 to 15 min then it will start. Could it be a sensor. I don't think it's a fuse or filter because it only does it when it's cold. I also don't think that it's water in the gas because it eventually start.

    Any suggestions would be nice



    Thanks,

I have a similar problem with my 99 cougar. It will start when I spray starting fluid in the intake and I have gas at the test point but it doesn't seem to make it to the injectors.

Yes, For the fuel pump or Filter, it is uaually under the floor board under the car, It can be on either side, track your fuel line from the tank. Very Simple. I don't know why Ford does this but they do. SECOND: Yes, Look Under the Drivers Seat. THIRD. The Fuse box can be one of two places. Under the Hood, Or when you open the drivers door, Their you are. Not where you used to look. Up under the dash. Next to where Air should blow on your feet. Good Luck.

Why won't my car start? It was running last night.


Try start the car again when it is completely dry, if it starts the rain may be short circuiting something on the loom in the engine bay.

If it still wont start,

will it turn over? (car tries to start)
- If it wont turn over the battery would be dead

- If it turns over but wont burst into life then we can go from there ^_^

Have a 2001 jaguar vanden plas. It won't start. It cranks fine battery is good but it won't turn over. I have been told could be fuel filter and or fuel pump. If you agree how do i change


To confirm that is is the fuel pump at issue here get a can of spray starting fluid and next time it won't fire up spray it into the air intake hose of the engine while someone cranks the engine over, if it lights right off then the pump may be the problem. A clogged fuel filter may cause loss of power but seldom if ever a no start.

2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start


If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

Put in fuel pump the pump is not making a noise, car wont start.


Check fuel pump fuse with key on and with a test light. Fuse should light test light on both sides of fuse. The check fuel pump relay (not sure of location) probably is fuse panel in engine dept. should here it click when key is turned on. You can do this next step 1st or last and thats check power at the plug were harness plugs into sending unit. Have someone turn egnition on and off every 3 to 4 seconds due to power to pump usually shuts if car is not running every 3 - 4 seconds.

92 honda civic turns over fine but doesnt start


ok, this is a commom problem with this 92 hondas,

it may be the pump fuel relay, which is under the dash on the driver side by the fuse panel.

here is a way to determine that.

when you turn the key on the on position

do you hear the fuel pump running while the engine light is on, and does the pump stop running afteer the engine light goes off?

if you do hear the pump running then it means that fuel pump is working fine ( since it way just replaced), but if you don't hear it running while the check engine light is on ( about 2 seconds) chances are the fuel pump relay is not working as it should.


also there are clicks that have to be heard on the starting process.

1 when you turn key to on possition

2 when the check engine light goes off( a click has to be heard just after it goes off)

3 after the car starts

If you don't hear this clicks, try to get your ear close the location of the fuel pump relay( near the fuse panel under the dash).


the fuse relay is just a bunch of circuits soldered, so you can get it to someone who knows how to solder and fix it.

or just get a replacement one at any junkyard. ( cheapp)
