Best to go to a repair shop
Did you test the fuel pump in any way ,
or just guess & replace it.
I would stop that diagnostic approach
immediately & get help
Could be ignition issues when it get hot.

Testimonial: "Yes we tested the fuel pump its got the right amount of pressure and the pump is working fine. I wont be taking it to a shop not until im completely done with trying to fix it. I am about to cut off my converter next."

    You mean replace the converter based on it's age? You do realize you need the converter in place & working to have control over the fuel system

  • Michele Devers Jul 21, 2013

    You dont have to have a converter you can straight pipe it an it will work ust fine

  • Anonymous Jul 21, 2013

    Removing the converter is again federal emission laws & if you have inspection you won't be accepted There is no reason to remove a converter just so you can polute the air How do get the oxygen to work with no converter?

Since you replaced the distributor, are you sure it's properly timed? Hook up timing light and try to crank. It should show you where your timing mark is. It will also verify that you are getting spark.
You need to start a systematic check. Is it electrical, mechanical, fuel related? Need to do more checking and maybe we can get that puppy going.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 98 gmc jimmy loses power to a stop

the fuel pump could actually be malfunctioning. and the reason that you are able to restart and drive again is because when you turn the key on it is allowing the fuel pump to pressureize your system. but while the fuel pump is continuasly running it is loosing the fuel pressure. this is common on the cheap fuel pumps. i am not sure about were you got the fuel pump from but in all of my experiances with this problem i find that the fuel pumps have been boughten at a napa store.
i hope this helps you out.
and you could attach a fuel pressure gauge on to the fuel rail and start the car and watch the pressure to see if it is droping.

SOURCE: 1995 sarari van stalls. replaced fuel pump

when you shut the truck off is/was there a swishing/bubbling noise coming from the tank?

Theres an orange rubber in the fuel tank that connects the fuel pump to the sender lines. if that rubber is torn you may get it to run but not stay running for more than a short period of time.

1995 trans sport van new fuel pump, won't start


If the pump continued to run after shutting off the car you fuel pump relay was probably staying latched. I would replace the relay as well based on your info. Along with the pump the fuel filter should be replaced too and fuel pressure should be checked. Make sure your ground is good also.

My Ford windstar 2003 would not start today. I turns over but wont start. I thought it was no gas so i put 2 gallons in it. It still wont start... please help


Okay. i have seen alot of fords that wont start but ran good and got parked and then wont start, the problems i have found is first the fuelpump goes bad,try this, have someone try to start the truck and at the same beat the bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber hammer, this shakes the pump and sometimes makes a bad pump start back up, if you get van going with the method then pump is bad and needs replacing. the other thing i have seen alot is that fords have a fuel shutdown switch, this shuts the fuelpump off when van is in a crash or i have seen this just by the van getting tapped in a parking lot, so check the switch, you will need to look in the manual to locate it and you will use your finger on the top to push the button in and you will feel it click a little and then try to start the van, here are a few locations they put the switch.i jsut remembered on this van the switch is in the rightside in the luggage compartment, open the rear tailgate and look to the right on the side you will see a decal that say fuel switch, thats the switch. hope this helps. good day

Something in my fuel pump is draining my battery and the van wont start. Meaning this I charge up the battery to start the van and the van will turn over but not fire (start) I replaced the fuel pump...


could be a bad ( tps ) sensor it registers the amount of pedal you give it so it knows how much fuel to give the engine if the starting volts are not where they should be it won't start.

Van died while driving, was able to get started back up 1x


first thing is to check for fuel, if you spary starting fluid in throtlebody will it start?. if it does then its mostlikly a fuel pump, if not then the next thing is to check for spark, remove a plug wire and spin engine does it spark, yes then it a fuel problem, if no then may be a crank sensor or a coil or module, but most of these have bad fuelpumps so start with the fuel test. hope this helps.
