SOURCE: I have a Saturn L200.

I'm experiencing the same things with my '03 l200. My mechanic replaced the fuel pump about 3 times before finally telling me it was the body control module. It will cost me about $260. On top of the problems you mentioned, my car also doesn't register miles in the odometer, and the dashboard lights flicker. He said all this was because of the faulty body control module.

SOURCE: 1993 VW Cabriolet Fuel pump or Injector problem?

Hi. This is more of a fuel filter issue than a pump issue although, a bad fuel filter will eventually destroy a fuel pump. When the filter is restricted or clogged, this will tend to work the pump harder than normal. this will over heat the pump, therefore, shortening its life span. I recommend replacing the fuel pump and filter and, adding a fuel additive like techtron fuel injector cleaner/water remover as well.

Please rate and have a great day:)

Hello
You say you checked the ignition switch, you are 100% sure that isn't the problem? this year and indeed most 1990's Honda"s has a problem with the electrical contacts in the ignition starter switch, the symptom is the car will run until the key is released to the run position or the engine just stalls for no reason, the switch is very easy to replace and I bet is your problem, just remove the sterring column covers, they are a **** shell cover the screws are recessed on the bottom of the cover, Honda doesn't sell the switch seperately from the key cylinder buy it is sold in the after market, here is a price and picture of the part.

Sounds like your fuel pump starting to die. It is not getting enough gas under heavy acceleration which is 100% fuel pump slowly dying. At start up it might not be building up enough fuel pressure to feed the system but the shot of ether and engine cranking helps pressure the system just enough for the fuel pump to trickle the gas and run the engine at low rpms.

My car has been starting hard and sometimes dies unless I pump the gas a little when I'm cranking it


Maybe you need to change the gas filters or maybe try better gas or maybe change the fuel pump.

88 jeep cherokee turns over but won't start... as if its out of gas... its not!


Try spraying a little ether in the throttle body/carb and if it starts and runs for a little bit then dies then you have a fuel problem. Probably a pump or fitler. If you replace the pump also replace the filter. Note: if you are trying to start it with the ether in it and its not starting and you see a little fire keep turning it over to **** the fire into the engine, etherwise you will burn up your glaskets.

89 Suzuki samurai fuel issue


sounds like the electric fuel pump is failing the backfire is a result of a really lean fuel mixture, it is hard to say if u did any damage, most likely not because the pump is inside a anti-slosh baffle
