Crank tolong before it start


First check your fuel pressure regulator by pulling the vacuum line off and check for fuel there should not be any.Then start the car and with a pressure gauge hooked up to fuel rail pull the vacuum line off the pressure should rise 5-10 psi if it does'nt replace regulator.Next check the fuel pressure it should be 41-47 with key on and engine off if not within specs replace fuel pump.

My sport trac is acting up and I check the pressure of the fuel pump and it goes up and down from 60-10. Can the fuel regulator be the cause of this problem


Yes if fuel pressure regulator is faulty, then it can cause such problems.Because its faulty, it will not control the flow of fuel and this can happen.but also the fuel pump, if its very old, it can cause such problems.Both the fuel pressure regulator and fuel pump are to be checked.--------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Don't think it would be the fuel rail, as that is only a pipe to hold the gas and the injectors. So if you have low pressure, it is probably either the fuel pump or the fuel pressure regulator. Wouldn't cost much if anything to have the fuel pressure checked. I believe Autozone or O'reilly's will rent those fuel pressure gauges, with just a refundable deposit.
The pump is doing something since the engine is still running. If your pressure is too low (below the specs for your truck), a pressure regulator is cheaper than a pump, so you may have to try both, first the regulator.
But first, pull the vacuum line to the regulator off and run the engine for a minute. Watch the regulator: if gas starts coming out the vacuum fitting on the regulator, then it is definitely shot and you need a new pressure regulator.
If the regulator is not leaking, check the fuel pressure. If low probably the pump, but maybe the pressure regulator. Ask the guys at autozone (or where you get the gauge to check pressure) how to test the regulator as you are checking the pressure.

Last week my 2000 olds alero stalled when i came to a stop. Then my anilock brake, service vehical, and trac light came on. Changed fuel filter and fuel pump. It does it again today!!! Please help.


None of those lights having anything to do with stalling or fuel filter or fuel pump.
As for the ABS, etc, this is likely due to the wheel speed sensors not reporting properly. While one or more of them could be bad (wheel hub replacement), these circuits are notorious for poor connections, corrosion, or bad wiring due to age.
The wheels speed sensors can be tested before replacing. Start with getting the ABS codes scanned. This will tell you which sensors are having problems.
Before any of this, you should look at the other engine codes and address the stalling, etc first. Scanning the engine and looking at air flow, fuel trim, etc will guide you to the next step. Have you changed the air filter recently?

My 2004 Pontiac Sunfire's Trac Off light came on this morning and stayed on, now car won't start...will idle for a second then die. Won't accelerate at all. Seems like no gas is getting through.at all. A...


The mechanic is probably right...sounds like the car is not getting fuel. Could also be a clogged fuel filter.

As to the Track Off indication, consult your owners manual...but what you're describing, definitely sounds like one of the above - clogged filter/fuel pump.

Have you ever ran the vehicle out of gas? That's the fastest way to pick up junk in the bottom of the fuel tank...which will clog a fuel filter in a hurry.

Good Luck,
Mike...

My 2000 VW Jetta won't stay running


not the fuel relay. the pump may not have enough psi to pump properly. and you ould have a blocked fuel filter/ ethanpl das has been none to clog lines,fuel pumps, and emissions.and injectors. <p>
Change out your fuel filter first. Add a can of SEAFOAM to you fuel(parts stores). after changing filter. let SF sit in tank for 10-20 minutes in fuel. It will help dry the water that ethanol produces..,<p>
If it turns over faster, and wants to start, that is a sign of EGS(ethanol gas syndrome)/ let it sit another 20 minutes and try to start. If it won't fire through the injectors, replace the regulator(which is also damaged), and that should fix it. Also have a psi done on your fuel pump. good luck

1996 Pontiac Grand Am will start but won't stay running


Either security chip in the ignition switch has failed or the security system has triggered. Try turning the key on and let the security light flash till it goes on steady. If it does not start, change ignition lock.
