Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7

1 Answer

Fuel Pump I don't know much about cars at all, but recently my fuel pump went bad on me and I found someone to replace it. Next thing I know he calls and says the entire exhaust system is rusted and can't replace my fuel pump. I was wanting to know, how true is this? Can I have my fuel pump replaced without my exhaust being there or will I have to get the exhaust system taken care of first before the pump is replaced? When my fuel pump was working, I never noticed anything else wrong with the car.

Not likely......no-start can be a LOT of things.First check fuel pump reset button. Check if you're getting spark,because with fuel and spark,it should run.don-ohio

Okay I have a 2002 Dodge stratus and recently the car just died out. So after gettin a tune up another problem occured where I had to replace the starter. Now with new spark plugs and a new starter the car...


I don't think the key has anything to do with it. Spray a little staring fluid in the throttle body while someone tries to start it. if it fires off, spray a small amount in it to keep it running. if it stops you know you have an issue with a fuel filter / pump or fuel regulator. Main thing is to be sure the gas is getting up to the engine.

2000 Eclipse GT turns over but doesn't start. Fires once in a while but won't run. Had timing belt replaced.


Hi, if the car turn over, and it don't start. Then it is like the engine don't get fuel. Or bad a spark plugs. Most common problem is the fuel pump going bad.

It could also be a bad fuse, but a easy way to check if the fuel pump is ok is to have someone stand at the back of the car when you turn the ignition. The fuel pump should make a buzzing sound for a few seconds. And if you don't start the car right away the fuel pump will stop.

If you don't hear any buzzing from the fuel pump/fuel tank then you have a bad fuel pump............

Just alot of problems


I suggest you go to a mechanic that knows what they're doing. You could have a gasket that needs to be replaced. I have a 2000 grand am and the water pump went. I went back to my mechanic three times because my car was still overheating and leaking. They finally figured out I needed a gasket replaced. I also had the timing chain replaced because my car was shaking they found that the piece that holds the timing chain was broke so they had to replace that too. My car doen't shake anymore. Maybe something is busted that controls your timing chain. Hope all this info helps.
