Sounds like a faulty fuel pressure regulator, faulty fuel pump relay, or a bad check valve on the pump it's self, I would start with the fuel pump relay, it is located inside the right rear fender area inside the trunk

If I let a F150 run out of gas does the fuel pump continue to run?


Most original fit EFI in tank fuel pumps are designed to shut down when the engine stops running with the ignition switched on. This is a safety system eg inthe event of a frontal collision which disables the engine and a fuel line is severed the fuel pump should shut off. Its considered not a good idea to run out of fuel as this can cause internal damage to the fuel pump also poss cause the fuel filter to be contaminated. Is this a siutable answer?

My fuel pump keeps running fuel rail up to pressure even after the car has been stopped. i cant find any leaks and thought the pump should stop after turning off ignition. any ideas


The fuel pump relay has to be checked.Usually, when this relay fails it gets stuck in the on position, allowing the fuel pump to continue running even though the car is turned off.Fuel pump relay is under dash above E-brake. Fuel pump relay has 2 White with black stripe wires thar are 12 volt with ignition on.

The fuel pump dont stop


Hi! The fuel pump is designed to run continuously as long as the ECM receives data that the engine is running. Excess fuel is passed back to the fuel tank.

The fuel pump is also designed to power up for 2-5 seconds when the ignition is turned to "RUN" to pressurize the fuel rail.

If your fuel pump runs continuously when the car is turned off, it may be a "stuck" fuel pump relay.

Cold days car will start and run for 3 seconds and stall for 20-30 min until it starts and continues to run


The reason is that , the fuel line is out of fuel, so the running for 3 seconds is just the use of the trapped fuel in the injector line, after which it will stop. The solution is to on the ignition by turning the key without starting the ignition. this allows the fuel pump to release enough fuel into the fuel line and the injection system. Allow this for 5- 7 seconds, then start the car. It will run without interruption.

Fuel pump noise smell gas while car is running 92 mustang


the pump should stop when it builds up to the correct pressure. if it continues to pump and you smell fuel then you probably have a fuel leek. normally fuel consumption will increase with a leek, even slightly.
