well it could be a bad wire to fuel pump....or pump is old and drawing to much current......replace 15 amp fuse and test for fuel if it blows again u can try a 20 amp fuse in place of the 15 amp ......but only to determine if pump is still pumping fuel b4 you turn on key disconnect fuel sending line to engine and get a bucket .......try turning it over and see if fuel is pumped into the bucket ....if 20 amp fuse works chances are your wiring is good....and u need a new pump good luck let me know how u make out

SOURCE: the car stalls we already replaced camshaft sencer

I would test the fuel pump pressure with a gauge to see that it is bad first. Then check your fuel/air supplies to see that they are good.

How can i tell if the fuel pump is bad

Most will tell you to listen to it hum when you 1st turn the key to ON (not starting) but if you are having other issues it will not prime and hum at all. If the computer, asd relay or crankshaft sensor is bad then it will not be supplied power and car wont run. Could lead one to think it's the fuel pump but really something electrical elsewhere. Depends on your actual problem with the car.

Car turns over for a minute then dies

Long list of reasons. Fuel pump, bad coil, bad wires and plug, bad sensors, bad computer, short related to computer or any sensor, bad cat if clogged, bad crankshaft sensor, bad fuel pressure, etc, etc. Without narrowing it down some nobody will be able to tell you what it likely is. I recommend testing for spark and listen for the fuel pump hum for a few seconds when you turn the key to On position (not starting). That could narrow down a lot.

Listen carefuly fir buzzing when you turn the key on. The fuel pump should run for 2 seconds. Then it should rin during crabking. if the car starts with starting fluid, it tells me the fuel pump is not running. Cause - bad pump, bad fuel pump relay (left side of Instrument panel), or tripped inertia switch in trunk.
