If the car is starting I would tend to believe there is a fuel related issue. There is an easy way to check for fuel pressure at the fuel injection service port. On some cars it may be tricky to find, so consult your Chiltons or other service manual to find it. Most autoparts stores will allow rent/barrow a fuel pressure gauge. Most fuel injected cars require a minimum of 40psi to activate the fuel injectors even if the ECU triggering them. There is also a test light that you be able to purchase at the parts store that can be connected to the fuel injector connection and it will flash to indicate that the ECU is triggering it.
Good luck.

98 Isuzu Rodeo Fuel pump not working Fuses and relays goodNew fuel pump


no engfne even stated.
why not say what "not working" means.?
Engine cranks ok but will not start, RIGHT?

Ill pretend fuel pressure is 0 PSI cranking right.

IMMObilzer light glowing? bingo.
interial switch tripped (was in a crash>?)see photo below...
The PCM sees dead spark so cuts all fueL? sure.
(it will, if it does?, scan it yet? cranking, that be first.)
The PCM can cut fuel for many reasons.
2 dead sensors, and spark dead on the tacho line.
1,2,3 bam
and immo set. 4
and the inertial switch, if fitting many are not.
what matters most (1st) is 12vdc to the pump actual cranking, does it have 11vdc at least>?
if you see 12vdc and PSI is 0 or not spec cranking
at the rail, then the filter can be clogged.
not just a dead pump,, i cant hear pumps cranking so.... i use TOOLS> to see whats going on.

to a DIY, vast answers.
1: makes noise.
2: fuel rail drips or not.
3: 12vdc missing to pump or not, cranking?
4: 0 (zero) PSI pressure at rail cranking

200e chevy tahoe sputtered shut down while driven on turnpike after getn gas started back up few minutes later thot it was bad gas what else could be problem


It could be the fuel pump. The pump is in the gas tank. The pump is actually cooled by the fuel. Occasionally, in hot weather, when the pump starts to get old, if you run the fuel tank very low, the pump will heat up. Then, when refueling, you are putting fuel in the vehicle that comes from underground at about 50 degrees F. This can cause the pump to fail.

1990 hyundia excell will not stay running.new fuel pump.help?


Sounds like the fuel pump is not coming on. I recall an owner stating there is a common problem on your model excel having to do with possibly an internal short in the ecu, or a connector problem with the pump signal wire at the ecu. I would have a qualified shop test the wiring for the pump.

Sounds like the fuel pump is going bad(or in this case,has gone bad). I suggest that you change the fuel pump and use a fuel cleaner in your gas tank as dirty gas may have caused the problem to begin with.

I have an 1997 tahoe and fuel pump went out replaced pump and filter and still won't start. gas is up on the rail at 45psi but not getting to the injectors


This truck requires 51-56 PSI fuel pressure before it will start.You may have gotten a bad fuel pump.

It will not start with low fuel pressure. Buy a bottle of quik start and spray a little bit into the throttle body (JUST A LITTLE BIT ) if it starts and stays running you have a bad fuel pump or a clogged filter. It is no reccommended to use quik start so only do this once or twice then repair the problem.

No spark just assume crank sensor


No spark? If you have a multimeter turn to 20v and unplug cable to coil pack on top of motor. Run positive to middle wire and ground wherever (neg batt terminal) and see what volts you get with key turned to ON (not starting). If 0.0 then either your ASD (MFI) relay is bad or your ECU is not grounding it or it's shot. All power to ignition and fuel pump goes through the ASD relay.

Basically you want to test jumping (bypassing) this relay. Not sure about your model but it has one somewhere. My 95 Talon it's by the brake fluid reservoir (2nd from left by fuel relay). Hotwire 87 to 30.

If still no spark look into crank position sensor, camshaft angle sensor or ECU.
