Hmm I'll need some more information to be of more help, for example is it tumbling but not starting, is it a powerful tumble>>??

Any way here is how to check the fuel pump,,

1.) locate the gas filter by the engine, there is a hose leading to it and one from it to the engine.

2.) remove the hose leading to it and stick it in a bottle.

3.) turn the ignition on, if the pump is working gas should flow into the bottle.

4.) replace the hose to the filer

5.) remove the hose from the filer to the engine and place that in a bottle.

6.) turn the ignition on and see if gas flows. if it does the filter is fine.

NB.. Check the gas in the bottle for signs of water this will cause a problem.

Where does the wiring harness run for the fuel pump? is it under the floor mats?


take a rubber or cowhide hammer and rap the bottom of the tank several times and then turn the key forward and listen for the fuel pump sound. If rapping on the tank allows the pump to run then the pump itself is going bad so change the pump if that is so.

Wont start it cranks but nothing happens.wont turn over. put a new what you would call distributor. still nothing.


If the Starter isn't turning the engine over, but you hear a clicking sound, you may have a bad Starter.
If the Starter is turning the engine over, but you are getting no Spark, you may have a failed Camshaft or Crankshaft Position Sensor, or your Timing Belt may have jumped or broken(common on the neons).
If the Starter is turning the engine over, but you are getting Spark, you may have a failed fuel pump, fuel pump relay, or fuel pressure regulator.

Before you start replacing sensor, double check the Timing belt to ensure it hasn't broken or jumped, and check to see if you are getting a spark or not.

My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland won't start, please help! The starter is new and the battery is new (and several other new parts: radiator, tires, rims, & brakes). It was running fine but one...


Hello,
There are several causes that might lead to such a problem.

A dead fuel pump (could be the pump, pump relay or wiring circuit);A plugged fuel filter;Low fuel pressure (weak pump or restricted line); or No pulse signal to injectors (bad injector relay or PCM driver circuit).

One of the first things to check is the fuel pump. Then you carry out these tests,

Run a test on this components and you should be able to detect where the problem is from.
Static Fuel Pressure Test, Residual Fuel Pressure Test, Running Fuel Pressure Test, Dead Head Pressure, Fuel Volume Test, Fuel Pressure Regulator Test, Fuel Pressure Drop Test, Scope Tests.
After carrying out these tests, you will be able to tell what component is faulty and how to solve the problem.
Take care and good luck

Fuel Filter-clogged. Fuel Pump binding mechaniclly or low volume. Are you sure you have no stored codes and do you really know from a very technical description what diagnostic work was done by your guy? Is it under warranty, I assume not ,if you r Dealer wasn't involved

My 98 explorer has an intermittent starting problem based I think with the Anti Theft System. Most of the time I can walk away with the key for about ten minutes and it will start. Other times not. I have...


the anti theft does not shut the fuel off, it disables the starter motor, so the problem u have is a failing fuel pump, this most often happens on trucks lke yours at around 100,000 miles.

My 2002 sedona xl will not supply gas to the engine is it the filter or the pump.the pump does not seem to run when ignition is on. Where is the pump or filter located and how repaired. Cy


If your sure its a fueling issue I would go to the wires that go to the fuel pump and check for power and ground. When the key is turned on the pump will run for about three seconds if you do not start the engine. If nothing happens then try cranking the engine and see if you have power. If you have power you will need a fuel pump. The pump is most likely in the fuel tank as is the filter. If you do not have power at the wires the you have a blown fuse of broken wire somewhere. Be aware the fuel pump is computer controlled and if the crank sensor is bad the fuel pump will not turn on. Easiest way to check for a bad crank sensor is crank the engine and check for a RPM signal. If you have a RPM gauge on the dash most of the time you cannot crank fast enough to get it ti move. Checking the RPM may need a timing light. Also a timing light will blink if the crank sensor is ok. If you have no RPM signal you most likely dont have fuel or spark., Easiest way to check for if you only have a fueling issue is spray a little brake clean into the throttle body. If it starts and stays running while adding very little spray of brake clean then you know its just a fuel issue. Also if the timing belt has stretched or jumped teeth this would cause a no start.

MUTIPORT FUEL INJECTION PONTIAC FIREBIRD 3.1


My 92 Bird with the 3.1 did the same thing after it sat for about 2 months. The car had aways started right away before. I had to jump start it and I thought it would never start.Same as yours after it started. Seem to get better after I ran it awhile. It was getting good spark and was getting fuel. I checked fuel pressure, it seemed to be within specs.then it started to sputter and the pressure dropped to almost nothing. Seems that the fuel pump was going bad, but still would pump enough fuel at times to run. When the car was parked the fuel pressure would bleed off, and when I tried to start it the pump had trouble pumping enough fuel to pressure the system.Long story short! Replace the fuel pump, and filter.....
