I would check the fuel filter. If you change it and still no flow then look at the fuel line for a blockage.

SOURCE: truck won't start, can't hear either fuel pump 1992 Ford F 150 5.

If you can't hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position trying to build up fuel pressure, it is most likely either a voltage issue at the fuel pump or you need to replace the fuel pump. Have you checked your fuel filter? Try turning on the key without engaging the starter and see if you hear the whine of the fuel pump.

Good Luck

try bypassing the oil pressure switch on the back of the block behind the distributor, if there oil pressure switch goes bad it will do this. had one that drove me nuts trying to fix it then figured out I had to buy a book and low and behold thee it was 3 wire oil pressure switch you can't see between the engine and fire wall just behind the distributor and costs 8 bucks to buy new.

When you turn the key to the on position can you hear the fuel pump turn on? If not, the fuel pump relay has gone bad. Make sure you have at least 5 gallons of fuel in the tank. Check and make sure you have fuel flow to the rail, try cracking the banjo bolt on the fuel rail.

You say you replaced the fuel pump relay switch? The fuel pump relay is located in the passenger compartment on the right side under the dash. Little black box with a 6 pin plug. Replace that and your power to the pump should be restored . Had this happen on mine just last week. The relay actually monitors the alternator, key switch and a couple of fuses and will remove power from the pump if there is a fault. AutoZone stock number is 20550, costs about $50.

Will start but wont stay running


No the missing O2 sensors would not keep it from running. The missing exhaust pipes might not help matters. No exhaust system would cause a lack of back pressure.
I would want to know what base fuel pressure is with a gauge before and after cranking. Your thought about bad gas is legit, today's gasoline is only good for about 2 or 3 months before it starts gelling up.
Did you replace the inline filter the last time you put the new pump in ? And are you sure the pump is getting power after the key is released?

Ran out of gas put gas in and now the car will not start


Running out of gas on a fuel injected vehicle, is very bad. Mostly, due to the fuel lines get pumped up with compressed fuel vapor. The pump can quit from running dry, & need replaced. See if youcan find the shrader valve on the fuel line, easily found on most GM's, usually none on Fords. I sometimes crack the rear fuel line (steel) on end of fuel rail. Crank a few times with the ECM fuse out so it cannot accidentally fire, if fuel comes out. Another alternative, until the fuel pump get fuel to the fuel rail.....is spray a few short shots of "starting fluid" on the air filter. (about a 4 second count). SpraY; 1 ONE THOUSAND, 2 ONE THOUSAND,3 ONE THOUSAND, 4. No more than that, then put the filter back in, close the box quickly,without snapping in & crank. DOes it run then, if it sputters & spurts, proably needs a fuel pump. On fuel injected vehicles, they are usually in the tank.

Don't use starter fluid the car becomes addicted to it very quickly. Have you checked that there is power supply to the pump / fuse / relay. If there is then check that the fuel is flowing through the pipes / fuel filter and into the fuel rail

98 dodge ram 1500 Truck ran out of gas. It will start w/ starter fluid sprayed in filter but will not stay running.


Since the fuel pump is in the gas tank, your pump picked up debris, and dirt on the bottom of the tank and ran it into your fuel filter.
Replace fuel filter, and check fuel pump fuse.
Running your vehicle with less than a 1/4 tank of gas is hard on the pump, because the fuel pump uses gas to cool it.
Please let me know what you find.

1987 IROC, Ran out of gas,put gas in, now service engine light on


if you have high milieage you may have sucked in the gunk on the botton of your tank when you ran out of fuel check if you can hear the fuel pump running for about 2 sec with key on engine off if you hear nothing the problem is with your pump as they will burn out if they run dry for too long,if you hear the pump check for fuel pressure if pressure low check fuel filter to see if clogged by gunk from bottom of tank.
