If it ran fine before you changed the filter, then did you prime the system before trying to start it? To do this, simply turn the key on but don't crank the starter then back off. Do this three to four times and what this does is builds pressure back in the fuel lines because when you changed the filter you lost the pressure and now will have a air bubble in the lines until you prime it. Hope that helps

SOURCE: Ran car real low on fuel carsputtered and died

I am definately a novice in the mehanic world, however this sounds exactly like a problem I had with a Pontiac (yes I know it's a different car...but for the most part, the electrical is the same). I threw all sorts of parts at it before the mechanic figured out that it was a bad ground that ran through the drivers side kick panel in the door entry. Once we cleaned the wires and ground them again, the car ran clean. I just thought I'd throw it out there in case it helped.

Replaced fuel tank now tractor won't start. It cranks good but just won;t start.


Probably have air in the fuel line not letting any fuel getting past, it will collect at the highest point..
If you have inline filter replace with a drill pump to suck fuel along pipe, or to force fuel back to tank, you will also need to fill the part that is post filter point

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.

My ford expedition won't start i change the fuel


If it a diesel then you must be aware that when changing a filter and pump they must be full of fuel, otherwise it won't **** the fuel into the engine.

My 2000 buick lesabre want start fuel pump comes on when i turn the key i have spark at the coils.checked all fuses. Changed fuel filter but car still won't start its trying to start but just...


It could be the fuel pump. Sometimes you can hear them engage, but they are not pushing enough fuel pressure to run the car. This can be checked.

20000 grand am won;t start turns over but won;t


Well then if no pressure at fuel rail then go to pump and in line filter as the in line filter might be the main problem but the pump pressure can also be faulty if filter is bad so check it out and let me know how you get on. Ron
