Question about 2001 Pontiac Sunfire
I started my car one morning trying to get to work and it wouldn't start. I had a buddy come check it out and he said the fuel pump wasn't kicking on so it I probley should replace it. So we did. Now it still isn't starting. When you spray gas into the engine it will fire, but as soon as you stop the car stops. We have not only replaced the pumps but also checked all fuses and relays that we know of. They all seem to be good. I just don't know what it could be.
Did you end up finding a solution? My honda has a similar problem. Turns over and dies when it's hot. Replaced fuel pump and relay and a few other things but still no luck.

On most cars there is a shut off button so if the car gets hit it stops the fuel from coming out. it is usually located in the trunk. there will be a relay button somewhere on the left or right side of the panel. there should be a notice that reads emergency shut off button. push in on that button and see if that don't work. If that button is pushed in then take the fuel line off before the fuel filter and have someone turn the key on. It only takes a few seconds for the fuel to come out. If you have fuel coming out than put the fuel line back on and take off the fuel line after the filter and see if you have the same amount of fuel coming out. you might have a clogged fuel filter.I hope this helps. If not let me know i have some more test that you can do.
