I filled my car up 2 days ago and all of the sudden my car wont crank but its turning over what do you think this could be. I hear my fuel pump turn on when i put the key in the on posiion.

Just because you can hear the fuel pump run dosent mean its pumping. Does the pump sound any different like maybe a higher pitch humm or a lower grone, It would be best to do a pressure test. Most all the pumps i have chg. went to heck just after it had been filled up with gas.You also could try changing the fuel filter and see if that helps it might be pluged up.

My 1991 honda civic runs fine yesturday and today it wont start please help

the car wont start? do you mean the engine wont turn over or it wont fire or run? if the car does not run but it turn over, check the basic..see if you have sparks and fuel, then check all your fuse pertaining to engine and ignition. the car need to have both thing in order for the engine to run. If you getting both sparks and fuel you engine may have jump time especially with older car with high miles, it the sign timing belt getting worn, you don't want it to break. if you don't get fire from spark plug then you may have a bad coil,distubutor,rotor or timing sensor. if you get no fuel, fuse blown, bad fuel pump relay or fuel pump it self. hope that help some ..good luck

Cold weather does not start

Need to listen for fuel pump humm for proper operation. Shoud humm for about 3 seconds with key turned in the on position. Humm will sound from gas tank where the pump is located. If it does not humm. possible Faulty Fuel pump relay or pump. It will need ferther diagnosis.
