SOURCE: car turns over but dont start looking for fuel pump fuse

If you are still having problem with this car (I would guess its got a 2.2 or 2.5 litre mitsubishi engine in it) check the MAP sensor (dealer will charge way too much for this...try autozone or advance auto). It usually takes a few small bolts to remove and replace.

SOURCE: durango shuts off when im driving and than won't restart

change fuel filter.first to see what happen .sound like fuel pump problems.if you had a fuel pump pressure tester.when it stall out again you could test your fuel pressure.because you dont want to buy a new fuel pump if its not the problem.they cost .$300.00 up to $700.00.if you take it to auto zone or advance auto they will scan it free.dealership charges $120.00 to scan it.if you scan it you save money from guessing.

Buy a repair manual. It will show you how to jump related circuits and show you related components like the oil sending unit. Which if it became faulty it would shut-down the fuel pump. Too much to fuel system to give one correct answer.

Could be any number of things. I would start with plugs and plug wires. if its missing when under a load such as going up hill. Anything beyond that would probably worth taking it to a shop for diagnosis, they usually only charge a small fee .

94 spirit 4 cyl k code, new fuel pump& relays. would the ECM cause the pump to not get the 2 sec burst

the ecm controls the initial prime for the fuel pump.make sure the relay is getting the signal from the ecm.the wires near the ecm should be checked for broken,damaged or corroded wires as if the ecm doesn`t get the proper voltage or ground it will not prime the fuel pump for the 2 seconds.

Ran 1998 ford winstar out of gas. put 5 gallon in tank but won't start

More than likely you have a fuel pump issue. The fuel in the tank not only powers the engine but it also helps keep the fuel pump cool. running it low/out of fuel could cause the pump to overheat but it is possible that your fuel pump was already weak. An easy way to check it is to turn the key on and check the schrader valve on the fuel rail by pushing it in with a small screwdriver,if nothing squirts out you dont ha(red button popped out on top)ve any fuel pressure. The next step would be to check the inertia switch,make sure it isnt tripped. If it isnt check power on both wires of the switch with it plugged in. It should have power for about 1 second on both wires after keyed on,if so,I would suspect the fuel pump

Im having fuel issues and ive changed the fuel pump and it still isnt getting gas and i dont know where the fuse is or relay i dont know what im doing wrong

There could be an additional fuel pump located inside your gas tank. You didn't say what type of vehicle it is, but sometimes there are two fuel pumps, one is the pain in the **** inside the gas tank, the other is under the hood.

89 Chevy Beretta Fuel Lines

how do you know it needs fuel lines, are they leaking? is fuel pump good?did you do fuel pressure test? did you chk. to see if filter is pluged? just because the tank leaks won't keep it from running and that can be fix with a little apoxey and a some elbo grease.

My truck 99 ford ranger died while driving down the road

fuel filter usually dont cause it to die and not start back, thay usually cause rough running. see if your fuel pump is running by getting in and roll up all windows so as quite as possible then cycle the key from off to run and lisen for the pump to run for 2 to 3 seconds should be a faint buzz sound if no sound is heard then replace the fuel pump relay, if no help probably going to need fuel pump
