We have a 98 Malibu that turns over but won't start.I was told it might be the fuel pump.If I use a diagnostic meter,will a code show for a bad fuel pump?


A bad fuel pump will not necessarily show a code. If you have a throttle body try spraying a little bit of starter fluid into it. Then try to start the car. If you have it will be under under the air cleaner cover and kind of looks like a conventional carbureator. If it starts with starter fluid and then dies you have a bad fuel pump, or clogged fuel filter. The fuel pump will be in the fuel tank. Im not sure where your fuel filter would be.

98 astro awd doesnt like to start in real cold weather (-18C) otherwise runs fine


I have a 98 and we just had a cold snap where it was super cold and I didn't start it for about a week. I had just got a new battery because mine tested out bad. Everything was good but now it doesn't want to get fuel. Cleaned all battery and relay connections and it's turning over great and fires with starting fluid but won't start. Guy at Napa said the fuel pump on these are known to not work well in the cold and suggested to warm the tank. I'm parked outside and can't move it to get it inside somewhere. Anyone know of good solution to this fuel pump not working in cold temps issue?

98 chevy cavalier turns over but won't start


i know industry jargon can be confusing, but lets try this. if it turns over but won't start, it could be your ''ignition module'' that sits on top of the vave cover on the motor or it might be the fuel pump or filter. make sure when you crank the engine that the key is all the way turned or it may not always make a proper contact to activate the ignition module. iv'e seen this before & had to change the ignition switch & all worked ok after that. i would need to know engine lt size to give you more details on the matter. please get back to me.

98 mercury sable runs fine but when you turn it off it may not start. let it set for a while it might start and run for some time until you shut it off and same thing happens will not start


The likely cause of this is a defective electric fuel pump, to verify buy a can of spray starting fluid at the parts store, next time it won't start remove the air hose to the engine and spray the starting fluid in, if it starts you will need to replace the fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, about a 3 hour job to replace.

Occasionally my 98 chevy P/U won't start. The fuel pump does not run. If I fool around with the Ignition switch I eventually get the fuel pump to run, then it will start and run fine.


The fuel pump only comes on for 2 seconds when the ignition switch is turned on until it starts.I would check the fuel pressure it should be 60-66 psi with key on engine off.Sounds like a weak fuel pump to me you'll know once you check the pressure.If its not within specs replace pump.

98 cherokee will not start but will turn over. It was running fine the day before. No pressure on fuel rail. No gauges work except oil pressure, all lights on dash work. I know it has fuel just filled up....


could be the fuel pump, fuel pump fuse, relay or wiring. Also check the crank sensor on this vehicle. They are known to go bad or come loose causing the vehicle not to start.
