Fuel pump.

With the key on and engine off do you hear the pump coming on?

Is power and ground reaching the pump?

A no answer to either could mean a bad fuel pump, but in either case definitely means an open circuit.

Why, when I ran out of gas, will it not start after adding 4 gallons of gas?


Hi,if the pump is working ok,I would say that there is some kind of blockage if you undo the fuel lineat the carb or injectors get a bottle and put the end of the line you undone into the bottle then get some one to hold the frottle peddle to the floor and turn the key,then you can see if the gas is coming through,give it a good fuew turns on the key,if gas comes through then put pipe back and turn should start,if not put air line on to blow eny blockage back into the tank,make shore the pump is working before you try this,all the best,hope this was some help.

Pumping gas will not help. My guess is you have no fuel rail pressure due to bad fuel pump. Find shrader valve on fuel rail and test it for pressure.

My 199 chevy s10 wont start for some reason. battery/starter are good. cannot smell feul when peddle is pumped from engine. attempted to start with starter fluid but would not start.


Most likely its the fuel-pump; have someone turn the power on while you listen for the fuel-pump to come on when you have the gas-cap off. Just put your ear next to the gas-filer-tube and see if you can hear a buzzing noise come on when the power is turned on and the motor is not spinning.
I would ask the dealer if it has a fuel saftey shut off switch. That switch shuts the fuel-pump off after the first hit in an accident. Its a safety feature.

Car wont start starter turns fast but dont start as if out of gas.i have gas.


If the starter is turning fast you either have no fuel getting to the injectors or no spark to ignite the fuel. If you smell gas coming out of the tailpipe it's probably spark related. If you smell no gas coming out of the tailpipe it may be your fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter. Check the fuel pressure.

Car starts, runs rough it will eventually die after about 10 to 15 seconds, or if i try to give it gas. smells like gas. replaced fuel pump/filter


why did you replace the filter and pump?
did something get in the fuel?

check the injectors and spark plugs

in my car someone put flour in the fuel tank and the fuel pump, pumped it into the injectors where it cloged them up

so i had to replace injectors pump filter now it is good

U have to check you injectors, if this is not the problem check your fuel filter it not getting gas and then check your gas lines, Get a compressor and blow the lines out, Look for rust and dirt.

If this don't work try checking you injectors again then check to see if your getting enough gas? Pump the gas peddle then go to the hood and see if you smell gas? if not? it your fuel pump orFuel Filter, and or lines clogged up. If your getting gas up to the front of the motor then it in your injectors? it one or all.
