    i can hear the pump running but it only run's for 2 seconds shuts down. I unhooked the fuel line by the motor, And when you turn the key on it squirts,a short bust of gas and then it stops.shouldn't that gas keep flowing until it build's up pressure.

    Has fuel pressure been checked yet when it quits? Don't laugh, but try this, when it quits, get under back end or side of truck with a rubber hammer & give the bottom of your gas tank a good quick whack with the rubber hammer, and then try to start it. Your not out to put a big dent in your tank, just a brisk hit. Sometimes when fuel pumps are on their way out, this will work temporarily in some cases to get you going again. Changing fuel filter may be a lucky thing too if not done recently. Do you know how to retrieve any trouble codes from dash, (check engine light) and if yes, are there any coming up?

That's the probelm with fuel injection, when it comes to diagnosing. Regulator etc, will shut down pump if pressure not detected usually. Only other way, other than a gauge would be to wire to pump directly as to by-pass all that stuff & you really don't want to do that, or perhaps a jumper wire acroos the relay, but you better be real good with wiring before you try that & mess something else up. Fuel pressure test should only cost about 1/2 hr labor, and well worth it. Regardless, if fuel filter hasn't been changed recently, I'd do that first, because it will need changing if pump has to be done anyway.

Why does my 93 Caravan Start fine and run great till it warms up then dies and wont start untill it cools back down.


I had the same problem a few years ago and it was the coil pack breaking down. If it starts missing before it dies id get a new coil pack. Before u buy a coil pack you need to get it warm again and just before it dies look underneath the vehicle to see if the catalytic converter is starting to get hot, if it is hot and usually getting red hot, its stopped up.It will fool you in to thinking that the coil is bad.

I have a 86 camaro 2.8L run good till it gets warm then die's won't start again till it cools. getting fuel and spark.


I have a 1985 Camaro and if the switch for the fan is off then it overheats. There is a fan that can be installed. My switch is on the left of my steering wheel. Tune up is always good. Have your alternator checked, if it's old can be a problem maybe. New spark plugs can't go wrong. Good Luck!!!
