Failure to start. then will start next day. Mazda said it was fuel pump. They replaced $790.00. did not resolve problem. they kept 2 days and said it was battery. Replaced. @ weeks later same problem.


Well, they probably did put on either a bad fuel pump or should've done the relay.There is also a fuel pump REGULATOR that can cause a lot of trouble. Make them keep at it,since their work should be warranteed when they say they've fixed it. don-ohio

Ran fine last night drove round trip prob 75 miles no prob parked tried to start in morming keepd cranking wont start less than 1/4 tqnk off gas banged on gas tank while cranking still wont start any...


One way to check the fuel pump is to turn the ignition to on and listen for the pump to run. It should run for a few seconds. It may be a couple of seconds after you turn the ignition to on before it runs. Normally you can do this repeated times.

If you don't hear the pump run that is most probably the problem.

Does a fuel pump continue to pump fuel with ignition on when the fuel line is diconected from fuel filter The car wont start no codes found it has done this a few times this year it runs fine when running...


you have a bad fuel pump it's in the tank and only comes on in these conditions.
1. ignition switch turned to the run position turns on for two seconds.
2. same as above but when engine starts pump continues to run as long as engine runs. and the safety switch for blow out prevention has not been tripped.

Your problem is the fuel pump and fuel sock and the check valve in the pump. only one way to be sure and that's pressure testing. You hook up gage to fuel rail turn the ignition key to the run position look at pressure should read 40 to 50 psi and should hold for 1 minute, if you drop 5 pounds in one minute pump is bad and even if it started they could verify that the check valve is not holding pressure.
This is caused by the life of the pump by using gas with ethonal in it and your car was not designed for it, so it damages the pump and injectors and destroys the filter in the pump.

96 Jeep cherokee ran out of gas, re-fuel, won't start. No spark.


You may have to prime the fuel pump. Or replace the fuel pump if that does not work. Why do you let it run out of gas? This is definately not good for an injected motor. It will continue to cause more and more problems. Fuel injectors should never run dry.
