No Fuel to engine: 2003 Land Rover Freelander SE

My boss' Freelander stalled with a no re start and left him in the cold. We towed it to the shop and I pulled a fuel line from the fuel rail feed and had no fuel upon turning the engine over. I checked all the fuses labeled FUEL and swapped the fuel relay with anonther relay next to it. Still no start, no fuel. I found the fuel pump access door, openned it, and can not hear the pump start. What would be my next steps of troubleshooting this problem? I can not go pay $680 for a fuel pump to shotgun troublehoot this vehicle. Please help!! Thank you...........Gary

    Check for power at pump. Also, try a quick sharp rap near pump, and see if it does anything. Have you tried spraying WD-40 into the throttle body air inlet, and starting, just to be sure it is fuel/lack of, that is your problem?

Make sure that your inertia swicth is not tripped. The Inertia switch is installed to make sure the fuel supply is cut off in case of acident or if you have a heavy vibration. Just look for it and reset it by pressing it down. It is located under the hood on the driver side by the fire wall. close to the brake booster. Hope this help.

Shuts off while driving but starts up

Sounds like it's not getting fuel. Check fuel pressure at the fuel rail. If low, make sure the pump is running. If the pump is running, but no pressure at the rail, check fuel, filter. Get back to us with result of these checks.

How to install a fuel injector on a 2002 jeep liberty 3.7

so that mean the old one is all ready removed.?
or did you mean all steps in the fsm for INJECTOR.
the steps are the same on all EFI fuel rail injectors.
you could google that or you tube it or read the FSM.

hide call keys from step 2 on, or very bad things can happen.
(wife or kids no aware of danger)
ill just cover the (basics)
1: per FSM , depressurize the system, in can be at 60PSI
parked. so avoid fuel in eyes, or a fire. we do that first.
gain access to rail under failure. (RUF) (no barking)
2: remove injector X , wire plug. (failing)
3: then detach the injector rail clamps the both rails off as one....
injector are all now loose, to pull off.
4: add new seals to new injector, and install in reverse order.

that's it, only the gain access , varies,... mostly.

last depressure steps:
run engine,
remove fuel pump relay, engine stalls. key off, hide keys

next tje FSM words (just the OFF section)

  1. Remove fuel tank filler tube cap.
  2. Perform Fuel System Pressure Release Procedure.
  3. Remove negative battery cable at battery.
  4. Remove air duct at throttle body air box.
  5. Remove air box at throttle body.
  6. Disconnect fuel line latch clip and fuel line at fuel rail. A special tool will be necessary for fuel line disconnection.
  7. Remove necessary vacuum lines at throttle body.
  8. Disconnect electrical connectors at all 6 fuel injectors. Push red colored slider away from injector. While pushing slider, depress tab and remove connector from injector. The factory fuel injection wiring harness is numerically tagged (INJ 1, INJ 2, etc.) for injector position identification. If harness is not tagged, note wiring location before removal.
  9. Disconnect electrical connectors at throttle body sensors.
  10. Remove 6 ignition coils.
  11. Remove 4 fuel rail mounting bolts.
  12. Gently rock and pull left side of fuel rail until fuel injectors just start to clear machined holes in cylinder head. Gently rock and pull right side of rail until injectors just start to clear cylinder head holes. Repeat this procedure (left/right) until all injectors have cleared cylinder head holes.
  13. Remove fuel rail (with injectors attached) from engine.
end expert.
login and read all steps. that be best , then ask questions?

When the outside temperature has been above 90 degrees, and with the air running, my 1995 econoline 150 conversion van, 5.0 engine, has stalled out. on the first instance, i put the van in neutral and...

I chased a similar problem for several years. Stalled, got towed no problem found. The thing would heal and then fail at random on hot days. After checking everything electrical, fuel pump pressure etc, nothing could be found and I could not duplicate the problem. One day after being towed to a shop again, van started and would not fail but this time I had the mechanic put a clear by pass line along with a pressure gauge and I monitored the flow for about forty five minutes. Suddenly I started to see a stream of air bubbles and the pressure began to drop until the engine shut off. It was the FUEL PUMP all along and no one was able to determine that w/ all the test equipment. Went to Kragen Auto, now Oriely's and got a fuel pump. Had the shop drop the tank and install it. Have never had a problem again. Don't worry about what the mechanics tell you that it is not. Change the fuel pump

Mitsubishi challenger 04/05 wont start, has been

I would guess there is more than a single problem with your car. While sensors and worn spark plugs and other possible problems would cause bad starting and running, such things would rarely stop an engine. To stop an engine it mostly needs a fuel system failure, the loss of signal from cam/crank sensors or a failure of the supply to the computer or a failure of the computer itself, though immobiliser problems should not be ruled out.

It probably should be taken to the shop but please read the towing instructions in the vehicle handbook to avoid possible damage to the transmission.

You could have gotten bad gas in your tank. Did you try dry gas at all? Also, bad gas can leave alot of sediment at the bottom of your tank, waiting for the right movement to get moving into your system. A new filter would only get quickly clogged again. I had this happen- got gas from a station after a flood- fuel tank had to be dropped and cleaned out.

My 97 buick runs cold stalls when hot wont start for 1 hour

Sounds like it is fuel related. Ck fuel pressure to be sure. Also ck the pressure regulator on the fuel rail, It is a small metal cylinder at the end of the fuel rail to ck pull to vacumn line off (hot not running after shutting the engine off). If there is fuel in the vacumn line it is bad. Good luck
