The fuel pump went out i replaced it and also replaced fuel filter the car ran great for 2 days then just cut out and now it almost startsbut wont i checked the rail to see if gas is gatting to the in


One guy mentioned carb cleaner. I would use starting fluid due to the fact that if it is a fuel problem the car will run for a few seconds on starting fluid. If it won't run on starting fluid then it's an ignition issue. If it runs on the starting fluid then check the inertia switch & fuel pump relay.

Turns over but won't fire


If a starter is able to crank the engine but it won't start you usually have either an electrical or fuel problem. It's also remotely possibly that it's compression.If an engine has proper fuel, spark and compression, it will start when you crank it. So your challange is to find out which part isn't working right. Start with fuel. Spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while someone tries to start the engine. If it starts briefly when you're spraying starting fluid, you probably have a fuel delivery problem. That could be injectors, fuel pump, fuel filter, relay, fuse... who knows what until you check into it.If it doesn't start with starting fluid, check the spark. Pull a plug wire and attach it to a spare sparkplug and set the plug on a solid metal part of the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch the plug. If you have a good spark, it might just be out of timing.In any case, you'll need to start isolating the problem. Find out which part isn't working then you'll know what to replace/repair.

Thought the fuel pump was bad, engine died but after hitting tank with mallet it started up and ran. replace fuel filter. started and ran a few min then died wouldnt start up. replace fuel relay still wont...


If you hit the tank and it ran? The fuel pump is bad. By striking the tank you jarred the pump, causing what mechanics call "The last ride" Peice of sound advise, Replace with ac delco pump. The zone pumps go out usaly within months if not days

Ran out of gas. vehicle started, ran, drove home,


the fuel pump runs for 5 seconds when you turn key to ON. It runs all the time whie cranking and after engine starts.

Spray some starting fluid into throttle body & see if it starts then. If yes, pump may be bad. Can you hear pump run in fuel tank?

1995 Dodge 1500. drove into town and after shopping went to start truck and turned over and ran for about 5 sec now won't start, has gas in tank. Noticed the last week that my fuel gage was acting funny,...


Your fuel pump is faulty.Ive done 20 of these things.....very common.....super easy to do. less then 3 hours time and do replace the fuel straps and expect to spend around 500 bones for labor and materials

Engine wont stay running. Please help.


change the filter first. IF the pumpwas bad it wouldnt start at all. It could be going bad but the only way to really test it is to pull your gas tank and at that rate you may as well replace it.

you could have a clogged injector causing the lack of fuel as well. you can try injector cleaner, Lucas is my personal preference I use it at every fill-up. 4-6oz per tank of gas depending on your tank size.

97 jimmy fuel pump went out replaced pump ran for 2oomi


Sounds like you are not getting power to your fuel pump, test both ends of the supply line with a meter, andhave someone else to help you by operating the key, because the system will cycle on for a few seconds and then turn off,,,then you need to turn the key off and back on to get it to operate again.
