Check your fuel rail on the intake. if you are not getting fuel there the blockage is in the lines, if you are getting fuel there then it is your injectors clogging up

Start by checking for vacuum leaks, compression then a scan for fault codes. One of those should turn up a problem

fuel pump should only run for about 15 seconds when u first turn the key on now you should check to see if the fuel filter is clogged or your sending unit might be bad on the fuel pump itself

Check your fuel pump pressure- sounds like the pump is on its last legs.

Car is running lean, we changed fuel filter, but still sputters and dies and won't start. what could it be we really need our car running


This really sounds like a problem with the fuel pump, a very common problem. Check the fuel pump pressure or have someone lean under the car and listen as you turn the key to the "on" position-just before the crank position. You should be able to hear the pump run for 2 seconds just as the key is turned.

Car won't start; mechanic said it was fuel pump; fixed problem but car still won't start...any suggestions of what could be?


When you changed your fuel pump did you also change the fuel filter? If not, that would be the next logical step. While you have it disconnected you can also check to make sure the fuel pump is pumping the fuel.

Car just dies after a few miles when trying to start it turns but wont start just started doing this when it got to below zero


First instinct is fuel restriction. Check fuel filter and operation of fuel pump first.

1995 Ford Probe sputtering, dying. Won't start now.


This to me sounds like it could be the fuel pump but first I would check the simpler solution and make sure your alternator is good because if your started turns over fine but the car wont start the next part to check would be for me the alternator.
