How do you know it is non of the above.

If you are sure next thing to do is check for a kink in the fuel lines.
After that start checking fuel injectors.

I have a 1991 ford Escort and it's not getting gas! I have replaced the relay fuses and about 4 mouths ago replaced gas pump. I need to know how to test gas pump whith out takeing it out!


you have to put a pressure gauge on the fuel rail it will tell you if the pump it working most of the time you will find a fuel pump prime wire near the fender most of the time its by the battery. green wire end that you can put a spade terminal into you can put 12 volts to this and it will energize the fuel pump. also make sure your wires to the pump are good. I can't count how many times I have torn into a fuel problem to find out its a bad plug at the pump.

1998 ford escort has full power , stalled at intersection and now wont start, any ideas


might have a fuel filter problem or a fuel pump problem meaning the filter might be clogged or the fuel pump in the gas tank is not pumping check ur fuse box there is a fuse for the fuel pump in there if it if blown replace and then turn car over again. if its ok then it still could be a fuel pump problem check the fuel filter located by the gas tank under the car or take to a local mechanic if u do not want to do it ur self. fuel filter is easy to change very easy.a fuel pump on most cars the gas tank as to be dropped.

I have a 1999 ZX2 ford escort that starts, but dies in seconds


It is was a gas filter problem blocking gas flowing from the pump. What happening was that when it was trying to **** the last drop of gas into the engine it really disturbed dirts inside the fuel filter and made it clogged at fine mesh. And also make sure give sometime for gas delivered into the fuel line it since it was empty when you change the fuel filter. It means you have to keep starting for a while so gas can go up to the fuel distributor then injectors.

1993 ford escort wagon,no electric to injectors


The fuel delivery system uses an electric fuel pump to provide high-pressure fuel to the fuel injectors. The fuel pump is located at the rear of the vehicle, mounted in the fuel tank. It can be accessed by removing the rear seat.

The fuel tubes leading from the fuel tank to the engine are under pressure during vehicle operation. When the engine is turned OFF, the fuel in the fuel tubes remains pressurized for long periods of time to provide quick start-ups. Fuel not used by the fuel injectors during operation is routed back to the fuel tank through the fuel return tube.

The fuel handling components are protected by three fuel filters. A replaceable in-line fuel filter is located inside the engine compartment between the fuel tank and fuel injection supply manifold. A serviceable filter screen is located inside the fuel tank at the fuel pump inlet. A non-serviceable filter screen is incorporated into each fuel injector.


I can get you trouble shooting tips if you want them.

Timing belt? fuel filter?


Running the tank low (below 1/4) on fuel ruins the fuel pump, it uses tthe gas around it to cool it down, most likely you will need a new fuel pump.
