Hold the pedal to the floor while you spin the motor, that will put the computer into a clear flood condition and will cut all fuel to the injectors allowing you to clear out the intake and cylinders. You also might check and see if you have a vacuum controlled fuel pressure regulator. If the vacuum line to that is broken, or the regulator is bad and letting fuel flow through the vacuum line will also cause this problem.

SOURCE: 2001 kia rio fuel pump does not work

Are you positive its the fuel pump? Have you tried running the pump with the return line off to see if it pumps fuel? They don't always have to make a noise.

SOURCE: 2001 Mitsubishi eclipse wont start

you don't hit the alternator, you hit the starter to help is shake free because it is already going bad. take battery and alternator to parts store and have both tested. check the wires at the starter and make sure they are on SECURELY. very important SOLID CONTACT is occurring. do your lights turn on? check starter relay if the eclipse is equipped with one.

Sounds like air in fuel line. Purge fuel line. By "crank", do you mean engine spins but won't catch? Try starter fluid in intake.

Check or replace all your fuel filters. Check for water in your fuel. Drain your tank and replace with 93 octane fuel. Also check your spark plugs.

2001 montero limited randomly wont start after setting a while starts fine


Check your gas cap and fuel pump. If you can start it after loosening the cap and putting it back on, your fuel pump is starting to die. It can't pull the gas out of the tank. When you release the cap, you let air in and release the vacuum in the tank.

Car want start after putting gas


you might be a victim for crappy gas for the gas stations. some places known for it is speedway and such low end places make sure you get gas from the better places like mobile or shell and never fill up at a station that a tanker is filling the station up you will get sediment that the tanker stirred up when refueling the underground tanks. they have screens to try and filter it out but stations don't care. i have known some stations after hours run water in there tank to stretch out there fuel supply and it lowers the octane to the point you'll never get combustion to fire the engine. you'll have to either jack up the vehicle and take the filter out and turn on the pump to get all or most the fuel out or complain to the gas station and try and get a reimbursement. and put some fresh fuel in.only thing you can do.and while the filter is off good time to change it 5 -10 dollar part.hope this helps ya. best way to check is get some in a cup and pour a little on the ground and try and light it if it don't fire or smell strong sorry your a victim off low octane watered down gas. i might be out of place here but it happens to many many people everyday.

1998 sts wont start unless u hit the gas then it runs rough ..u put it in drive it wont run over 2000 rpms then it dies


Is the gas tank above 1/2 tank now?

A worn / aged fuel pump will fail when it's hot and the fuel level is low (example: below 1/4)

Park your car in a cool area.

Start the car when it's cold outside,

Check the engine fuel pump pressure.

Replace the fuel pump relay,fuel filter,fuel pump and fuel pump stainer at the same time.

99 gmc wont start


check electric fuel pump operation ( located in the fuel tank ). Occasionally a fuel pump will burn out when running out of fuel, due to the fact the pump runs DRY for about 30 seconds till the fuel stops flowing out of the injectors, the engine quits, simultainously losing oil pressure which FINALLY shuts off the fuel pump. Sometimes TOO LATE. Hope this helps
