Hi,
is your car a GDI engine? If it is GDI you can't really hear the pump working when you put ign on.
Give me some details and I might be able to guide you there.
Chassis, engine numbers, GDI ??

    Could be leads, intake manifold gasket or rocker cover gasket. Do the leads have oil on them?

Why does the fuel pump relay don't click when i turn the key to run? and why there is no power at the fuel pump relay?


the operation of most fuel pumps is controlled by the fuel pressure regulator
when the fuel pump gets to set pressure , the pump is switched of by the ECM at the relay level
maybe nothing wrong with your system just the system working as designed
if you have pressure in the fuel manifold when you turn the ignition on then the pump will not run but will if there is a fuel leak somewhere and the pressure drops off

My Montro cranks but will not start


there could many different problems. do you have any check engine codes? if so have them checked out, because a sensor may have failed causing the engine not to start. then you need to check the fuel pump. stand by the fuel tank and have someone turn the key on, but dont start the car. listen very closely you should hear a small electric motor run for about 5 sec. if you dont hear anything, check the fuse and the relay. when you turn the key on the relay should make a fairly loud click. if no sound is heard the relay needs to be replaced. if you still dont hear the motor your fuel pump has failed.

Not starting which relay controls fuel pump


1994 ford Bronco was starting and running fine. My daughter drove it 3 miles to school that morning then a few hours later she went to start it and it would'nt start. The door chime and all the dome lights, lights on dash lite up as normal and when you turned the key to (start) position you could hear the fuel pump then it just would click and not turn over and start. Jumped the battery that didn't work. Had it towed home and tried a few more times that night to get it to start but no luck. Next afternoon went to check it out again and for the heck of it thought id try starting it. Would'nt ya know it..It STARTED right up? After checking Battery and solenoid..etc I thought it was the starter but now im not sure.

possibly a failed fuel pump. First check the fusible link #4 in the engine compartment relay box. Next, can you hear the fuel pump it come on briefly when you turn the key on? If not, see if you can hear the relay click when you turn the key on. If the relay clicks but the pump doesn't prime, it is likely the pump has packed up. If the pump is good, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines for other ideas. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Engine turns over but does not start. I poured


Either a bad fuel pump or fuel pump relay. Take off the gass cap, have someone listen where the gas cap goes. When you turn the key to the on position you should hear the fuel pump run. If not, find the relay under the hood. Swap the relay with the one next to it (temporarily) Turn the key off then back on. If you hear the fuel pump running then replace the relay. If not the fuel pump is bad. Which is usually the problem.

Problems in the fuel line


If it's like my 97, they are located on the firewall just to the right of the master cylinder. There are two of them and they are about 1" square with harnesses plugged into them. I had and intermintent problem with my 97 not starting. I took the rear seat out and turned the ignition on without trying to start it. You should hear the fuel pump kick on for a few seconds as it pressurizes the system. No whirrr, no power to the pump (or the pump is bad). There are two relays and I replaced the cheaper of the two to fix my problem.

I also have a Mitsubishi Eclipse (1999 2.0 L) that stalls intermittently when I come to a stop. It might run for a week with no problem, then do it again. It's an automatic transmission. At a stoplight rpm...


My 97 had intermittent starting problems. It never died while running but give this a try... The next time it won't start, remove the bottom of the back seat and turn the ignition on without cranking the engine. You should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds and then turn off. If you don't hear it run, it could be a problem with the fuel pump relay. There are two relays that are part of the system and they are located in the engine compartment on the firewall next to the master cylinder. I replaced the cheaper of the two and that fixed it.

Fuel pump relay


Is your car a GDI or MPI? If it's a GDI version the relay is located on the firewall left hand side under the bonnet. If it's a MPI then the relay is in the fuse box near the battery.

If this just started, maybe after a hard run, you may want to check your sparkplugs. I've melted the insulator on one of my plugs after a prolonged, spirited run causing same symptoms.
