Vauxhall tigra 94. The engine starts and tries to tick over but as soon as it fires up it cuts out. i believe it's either the filter or pump. where do i find the filter and how to change the fuel

Could it be fixed without replacing them.

SOURCE: 1985 corvette wont start

Have you changed the fuel pressure regulator on the driver's side fuel rail? How much fuel pressure do you have? Mine runs at about 45 psi.

SOURCE: Changing a fuel filter and fuel pump on 1994 Beretta

the pump is inside the tank and the filter is in front of the tank. you will have to remove the tank to change the pump. get as much gas out of the tank as possible then remove all the hoses to the tank then drop it. have fun

SOURCE: 94 dodge grand caravan no fuel in fuel rail

1. is there gas in the tank? the pump getting power? SEE #4
3.why did you replace the pump? 4.some dodges need a scan tool to run the fuel pump to get the fuel system primed after replacing the pump. If the computer senses the engine isnt running after a few seconds it shuts the fuel system down. Happened on my friends jeep that was a chrysler system. Took a while to figure it out. The snap on red brick scan tool worked for this. Any scan tool(not just a code reader) that can get to functional tests of the engine computer will work.
Sounds like no fuel is getting past the pump,so get a scan tool capable of doing this,take hose off of fuel filter stick the end of the hose in something to catch the fuel that will come out and activate the pump. If fuel comes out the pump is working and the filter is clogged, if pump sounds like it is runnin and no fuel comming out pump is bad.If all is quiet pump isnt getting power.

SOURCE: have replaced fuel pump, relay & fuel filter.

have you checked to see if you have a bad came or lifter. that would make it backfire. if it kind of spits fuel it maybe cam. if it throws fire than it could be timing like a bad chain.

Got a 54 plate Vauxhall tigra was driving down the motorway steam came out from under the engine lights come up on the dash as the car had cut out it has no compression in the first 3 pots

Head gasket has blown. If it happened quickly then you might save the head itself, if not, then be prepared for a costly job whatever happens.

How Do I find and replace the fuse for the radio on my Vauxhall Tigra (old shape) as it blew when the battery went, Thanks.... This link covers common issues with your car. I didn't even know Vauxhall was still in production. Parents had a 1962 sedan. Rather boxy and ugly, but built like a tank. First car I ever drove. There are also site with the parts (OEM) that you need. Just put Vauxhall Tigra in search engine.

We have a Subaru Legacy GT, Twin Turbo 93, the car cut out and will not start, no fault codes, replaced spark plugs, fuel filter, checked the fuel pump, replaced air flow meter, engine temperature sensor,...

sounds like your timing may be off, or have a crank shaft postion sensor failing, when it cuts are you losing spark completely? do you have a fuel pressue gauge? whats the pressure? also you could try running it with the map sensor unplugged and see if the condition improves

94 Grand Am looses power and abuses fuel. What is

Your fuel filter is probably on the fuel pump or on the fire wall of your engine - Mostly likely off of your fire wall. If it is loosing power have your catalytic convertor checked. Change your fuel pump, this could be your problem. All of these you can change yourself. I don't believe that a '94 Grand AM has an access panel to the fuel pump so you will have to drop the tank - Just make sure that it is below a 1/2 tank before dropping it. Buy a Chilton and it will give you step by step direction. Good luck!

Hesitation , skipping,engine cuts out when accelerating

Im having the same issue I believe. I have a 94\' Chevy 1500 and when i accelerate it will jerk like the gas has cut out but it wont stall. It just jerks and slows me down. It only seems to do it when going up a hill. I feel like it could be the fuel pump or possibly some intake gaskets?
