Check to see if you're getting spark from coil into distrubitor. if you replaced al those, the only thing i can think is it's the coil.

After adding gas to my Toyota Corolla 2002 LE the engine dies when I start the first time. I start again and it is cranking and after few sec it starts again...it's getting worse


It sounds like the fuel pump is going bad. If you had a fuel pressure tester you could check dead head pressure with the vehicle off and in the run position. A good operating pressure is about 41psi estimation. If you see the pressure drop right away and does not hold the pressure then the check ball or fuel pressure regulator is bad and you need to check those. Im giving proper diagonis procedures before buying somethimg you dont need. You can check a fuel pressure regulator with applying a vacuum to the valve and if the valve diaphragm holds pressure then it is good. Then all you have left is a bad checkball inside the fuel pump assembly. Unfortunately, if the ball valve is bad the whole fuelpump needs replaced. If you replace the assembly replace the filters too. A good tip to save the life of fuelpumps is to never allow the tank to run below a quarter tank because the fuel acts as a cooling system for the pump.

Check that the fuel pump is not jammed , eventually replace it, check also the fuel filter.

Fuelpump making bad noise took inline filter off it stopped making noise and pumped good replaced filter it it still want run and pump is making noise


Noisy pumps are going bad. It probally pumps but it can't make enough pressure and flow under pressure. Fuel pumps are checked with fuel pressure gauge for pressure and checked for flow rate to manufactures specifications.

I have a 1992 Audi 500se the fuelpump relay makes a clicking noise then the fuelpump stops and the car shuts down when I'm driving is the relay the problem or the fuelpump?


If pump is drawing excess current, relay can get too hot and fail. So answer is probably bad pump (clogged filter?) and now may need relay also.

90 mercedes stoped running when driven


There are fuelpump relays for electric fuelpumps. You can have a bad fuelpump with either a mechanical or electric pump. You can have a clogged filter.

You can try Autozone.com and register your vehicle for free. Then you can get wiring diagrams and fusebox diagrams for the electric relays. Then you can find out which system you have.

It certainly sounds like you are on the right track since you discovered its a fuel problem.

Truck wont start unless i pour some fuel in throttle body truck quits after dumped fuel burns off


sounds like the fuel pump or filter needs replaced. pull out line off filter underneath and turn key. if fuel comes out slow try replacing filter and trying again. if pressure is still low fuelpump is bad or a blown fuse or bad relay.

96s10 starting problems replaced throdle position sensor,fuelpump relay,no start shot of starting fluid fires right up and runs


Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. You should have 60psi to 65psi with the fuel pump primed and engine not running. Once the engine has been started, there should be a 5psi drop. Make sure the fuel filter has been replaced and that the fuel pump is making at least 60psi. Anything less or more then 65psi will not activate the fuel injectors, the other thing to is that the spider injection system on the vortec are know to go bad and you may have to replace the system. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your S-10 running 100% again.
