Hi. You need to check the fuel pressure to really eliminate the pump. It could be running but not producing sufficient continuous pressure. A drop of only a few psi may enough to prevent starting or smooth running. Once you're sure you have enough fuel delivery and you've already done basic ignition, then you can move on to the fun stuff!!!

Choking out


Are you sure its not really running out of gas ?
The fuel pump gets power from the pump relay for 3 seconds when you crank the engine, then the computer must "see" oil pressure or RPM to allow the relay to continue powering the pump.
The pump relay may not be working, or the pump may be faulty.

Car ran out of gas and has been hard to crank every since. I don't hear the fuel pump prime but I do hear the relay click. There is no gas expelled or pressure coming from schrader valve and also batt


the fuel pump is burnt out. the pump uses the fuel to cool itself. running low fuel the pump heats up and burns the plastic gears inside. thats why the fuse blew. need to take out gas tank to change pump.

Tracer not starting quickly


How about checking fuel pump operation? You may be due for a replacement. Check for fluctuating pressure and listen for unusual fuel pump noise.

I have a 2003 Kia sedona ran out of igas now wont start the code I get say crank posistioning sensor will that cut or cause the fuel pump not to work cause I get no humming from it the code is p0335


No this does not affect the fuel pump. It will affect the spark though. Hit the gas tank in the center a few times. If it starts then replace the fuel pump. Unfortunetly pumps with a few yaers on them will die when ran out of gas. If it doesn't start pull one of the spark plug wires, insert a screwdriver and put it close to the engine. crank the engine and watch for a spark. if there is no spark then replace the crank shaft sensor. before you replace the fuel pump.

It has been sitting for about 1 year without it being started. Last week I tried to start it and it started after a while and then stopped. I checked a bunch of things and all seemed fine. A friend said...


i am going to say that the main issue here is that the fuel pump died out. best way to check is get a fuel pressure gauge and check to see what the pressure is coming to the fuel rail

for sure get under truck with someone else inside with a rubber hammer or a block of wood hit the tank in the center and ask the person to crank the engine if it starts yes fuel pump time this is quite often the problem if it doesnt work start new fuses first then fire at the plugs injectors and so on but almost sure 95% fuel pump as well change fuel filter or you may have bad gas but it ran good before and nobody put sugar in the tank

Ran out of gas. vehicle started, ran, drove home,


the fuel pump runs for 5 seconds when you turn key to ON. It runs all the time whie cranking and after engine starts.

Spray some starting fluid into throttle body & see if it starts then. If yes, pump may be bad. Can you hear pump run in fuel tank?
