SOURCE: 98 chevy suburban engine turns over but wont start.

did you do a fuel pressure test? or did you just push in on the valve on the fuel rail and gas came out? if thats all you did, that will not tell you anything.you GOT to do a pressure test. just 3 to 5 pounds under and it will not run. fuel injection is fussey. you can rent a pressure gage at most major parts stores. they can even tell you what the pressure shoud be. just because you can hear the pump run, dosent mean its pumping, or at least the right pressure. did you also chk.for spark? need to do that to. still need air, fuel, and fire to make them run. good luck.

You may have a bad idle control valve. If you want to replace fuel pump yourself you will have to remove bed of truck or fuel tank.

SOURCE: 2000 Crown Vic cranks but won't start.

Check the fuel pump reset switch again, if it is popped back out then replace that little switch in the trunk, any ford one will do. it works off a magnet and a bearing to close the circuit for the fuel pump. easy fix.

SOURCE: i am not getting power to my fuel pump

on a lot of ford products there is a switch that goes from the fuel pump to the inside of one of the bedsides.
what this is, is a shock switch that turns the fuel pump off if it absorbs a hit.
its a really dumb safety feature but its effective.
there is a red button on it that u have to press to make it active again.
sometimes they just trip for no reason.

1992 F350-7.3 4wheel drive is hard to start after changing fuel filter and fuel pump. Why is it hard to start?


indicates fuel leak back and fuel pressure drop
check filter installation for seal not sitting properly, loose fuel line fitting , pump installed correctly (flow wise ), filter installed correctly (flow wise)
air getting in to fuel lines
the thing you are looking for is indicated by the initial hard start but when started runs ok ( good fuel to the engine eventually) and then by the fact that if the engine is allowed to sit for a long period the problem returns meaning that the fuel pressure is not being held
could even be a problem fuel pressure regulator allowing the fuel to bypass ( no pressure =hard starting) then gets enough pressure to run ok but allows that pressure to drain off over time

Runs fine then it trys to die and runs very ruff acts like its starving for fuel changed fuel filter and still does it ?


Check the fuel pump pressure.
Also; when you use gas with ethanol, it attracts humidity that can turn into water during storage.
The answer is premium fuel.

My Mitsubishi have dificult to star in the mornings


It sounds like you are dropping fuel pressure over night. If car spinning over ok run fuel pressure test or turn your ignition key on and wait for a few seconds do this a few times 3 if it starts ok then it could be a bad fuel pump I would try a new fuel filter before a pump if I doesn't help then a pump might be the cause need more information to help you.

1992 Buick Century Custom. Trouble starting as though not getting gas. Changed the fuel pump and filter and still has the problem. After a few trys it will start and run ok. ?????


Sounds like you need to replace the fuel pump relay which is about $13 at Autozone. It is simple to replace. It is under the hood on the passenger side right behind the headlights.

I can not get my car to start i think i have a fuel problem


Have you sprayed brake cleaner in the intake to see if it will start, if it does then check the fuel pump fuses and the fuel relay, before changing the fuel pump make sure there is power to the fuel pump (test light works fine) always change the fuel filter when putting in a new fuel pump.

My 95 yj hard too start after i change my fuel


when it does not start you need to verify no fuel pressure, Most likely your problem is the wiring harness is bad which will destroy a new pump if the pump is not geting the voltage required.
