Put on new fuel pump got pressuer but want stay cranked


Your post is lacking any detail. However, if you are stating that the engine starts after being cranked but dies out (wont stay running) there are 2 ways the fuel pump is activated. When the key is first turned on, there is a 5 second fuel pump run (the ECM energizes the fuel pump relay). After the engine starts, the fuel pump relay will only stay energized when the oil pressure switch closes keeping the fuel pump relay on (oil pressure is above 5-7 psi). If the oil pressure switch is faulty or there is no oil pressure, the engine will stall just after starting.

1997 subaru Impreza sport won't stay running . stalls after minute replaced Fuel pump,filter spark plugs wires ,cleaned injectors checked fuel pressure what next


check your grounds. I find many easy fixes by cleaning all the grounds around the engine bay. I would also check the ground at the fuel pump connector that wiring is prone to corrosion and breakage

Unhook your battery again for about 15 minutes. After you re hook it up, let car sit with the key in the on position, but not running. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, and then turn key off, and start it. It may run rough for a few minutes as the sensors and systems are all resetting. If you try running it right away, or cold, it can confuse the regen process

Why won't my miss fire?


Fuel injectors may be dirty.. or plugged. The car just sitting there may have caused the gas to go bad which may have given them a head start on plugging from the get go. Get some cleaner for it.
When the dash lights blink, is it unlike anything you've seen it do before?

Car won't stay running after sits overnight and runs good after you do get it started


In the morning, turn key to on position for 5 seconds. Do not crank.Then turn off for 5 seconds. Repeat this about 5 times. Then try to start. If engine starts right up, the fuel pump check valve is bad. Meaning all fuel in fuel line is returning to the tank when car sits overnight. The only fix is to replace fuel pump. If that doesn't work, replace coolant temp. sensor for the computer. About a 12.00 part.

Starts then dies & won't restart


check fuel pressure, should be 40 psi.
try 2 things

spray starting fluid in air intake to see if it will stay running. It's fue then.

Try turning key to on nd wait 5 seconds for system to build pressure and pump to shut off. Turn key off, wait for relay clcik noise or 10 seconds. then turn key to ON again and wait 5 seconds to build pressure again. Then start engine. If it starts better, you have a bad check valve in the fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator on the fuel rail (unlikely).

Check your fuel pump. This is how they fail most of the time. If you turn the key on and dont hear the pump prime then have your fuel pressure tested.

I just changed the batter in a 2002 envoy and now it wont stay running if i let off the gas please help


Try resetting the ECM, turn the ignition key to the on position "engine not running" and pull the fuse to the ECM and place it back in. Leave the keys in that position for 30 seconds and then turn it off and on again for 5 seconds and start. this will reset the ECM to default. It may stall again but let it, just start it again and let idle for 3min and go foe a test drive. This should reset the way the engine and transmission performance, and should reset the idle issue on your Envoy. Good luck and keep me posted.

I have a 2001 Suburban with a 8.1 It starts but dies after a second or two. If I try to start it like 20 or more times it stays running.


With the breif discription you are giving. It sounds like the fuel pressure is bleeding off. Next time you try and start it, just turn the key on, don't start it. wait with the key in the on postion for 5 seconds and then start it. If it starts right up and stays running. Then my bet would be the pump and/or regulator are bleeding off the fuel pressure.
Are there any codes in the pcm? (even if the check engine light isn't on, there could still be codes)
The 8.1 also like to have camshaft sensor problems, which could also cause your complaint.
