SOURCE: 1993 CAMRY HAS BURNT 3 TIMES THE FUEL SYSTEM FUSE.

it could be a couple of problems. your fuel filter may be clagged causing a lot of resistance in your fuel line. or if your pump is worn out it will cause a lot more resistance on the electrical part of your fuel system. if your fuel pump is going bad it will do better with a full tank of gas since your pump is submerged in fuel it stays cooler.

P0627 on a ford ranger tdci canot find those modules and relays to check


n the event of fuel pump "A" control circuit fault, a trouble code will be stored and a service engine soon lamp will be illuminated. Some models require multiple drive cycles (as many as 8) with a failure in order for the service engine soon lamp to be illuminated and others will activate it on the initial failure. The "A" refers to more of an area of malfunction as opposed to a particular circuit or component.

Symptoms

Symptoms may include a stored trouble code, an illuminated fuel cap malfunction lamp, and possibly an illuminated service engine soon lamp. If this code is stored, and a service engine soon lamp has not yet been illuminated, the code may be shown as pending.

Common Causes

The most likely cause of this code being stored is a defective fuel pump or relay. Most fuel pump control circuits are integrated into the PCM. Other causes may include corroded, open, or shorted wiring or connectors in the CAN Bus harness, a loose control module ground strap or broken ground wire, the CAN bus may also be defective

Car wont start


What is your symptoms? No crank its starter related, crank but you don't hear buzzing sound from fuel pump its fuel pump failure, turn engine and have someone listen by fuel door if hard to hear. If it cranks, you hear fuel pump, check your battery. If not battery, check for engine codes.

What are the sign's of your fuel pump going bad?


The most obvious bad fuel pump symptoms is your vehicle won't start, or it starts but does not run for very long before eventually stalling out. Your vehicle will act as though it is out of gas, even though the fuel tank is full. As the fuel pump attempts to feed the engine fuel, your vehicle may make bucking noises but will not spark up.
If you do suspect that you have symptoms of a bad fuel pump, you can listen to it to see if it is operating. Electric fuel pumps can be heard when you turn the ignition to the second position, so if you do not hear any sound coming from your fuel tank with the key turned, your fuel pump may have failed or the motor may have burnt out. Also, if you notice that the fuel pump is making an excessive whining noise, it may be a sign that the part is on the verge of failing.
Two common bad fuel pump symptoms that your vehicle may experience are engine misfire at higher speeds, or difficulty climbing hills. These symptoms are a sign that your engine is not getting enough fuel. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you may want to perform a fuel pump pressure test.
In order to perform a fuel pump pressure test, you will require a fuel pressure gauge. By inserting the gauge in the Schrader valve (usually located in the engine compartment), you will be able to determine if your engine is receiving adequate pressure of fuel from the vehicle's tank. The required pressure reading will be different for vehicle specific applications. Most repair garages have one of these gauges on hand to perform this test.
Your fuel pump may fail or become a faulty fuel pump for a number of reasons. Rust, debris and dirt may enter into the vehicle's fuel system, and may potentially be clogging the fuel filter or the fuel strainer. This does not allow enough fuel to pass through to the fuel pump which overheats the parts, causing damage. A second cause of fuel pump failure is damage to internal parts caused by small particles of dirt entering into the fuel pump. The fuel strainer and fuel filter were unable to keep these particles from entering into the fuel. Another major cause of a faulty fuel pump or failure is letting your gas level get too low. When the level of fuel is low, the fuel pump has to work much harder, becomes overworked, does not cool down properly, and as a result can be damaged. You should never let your fuel reach less than a quarter of a tank.

Transit pump code p0216 how can i fix this


P0216 DTC - Injection Timing Control Circuit Malfunction and this means the diesel fuel injection pump has a timing failure. This could be that the injection pump timing needs adjusted OR the failure is internal to the injection pump and therefore non-adjustable.

NOTE: If your vehicle is a Dodge Ram with Cummins engine then be aware that fuel delivery problems frequently cause this code. Prolonged fuel delivery problems can cause injection pump failure!

Symptoms of a P0216 DTC may include:
Low power
Crank, but no start
Hard start
Displays an intermittent stumble or miss
Engine may start and then stall
Engine may appear to drive fine but surge at idle


The most frequent cause of this code is a bad injection pump due to poor fuel delivery. Fuel delivery problems could be:
A plugged diesel fuel filter
An in-tank blockage
Air in the fuel due to a cracked in-tank fuel ine above the fuel level
Bad transfer (lift) pump
Injection pump out of time


Possible Solutions: First, simply check if your injection pump timing is adjustable. If so, check the timing and adjust if necessary.

If you think that you may have a fuel delivery problem, then check the lift pump operation. On Dodge Ram with the Cummins engine, the lift pump should produce about 45 oz of diesel in 25 seconds of operation. This can be performed by disconnecting the fuel hose from the injection pump and pumping the fuel into an approved container. Bump the engine over but do not start it. Then the lift pump will operate for 25 seconds. If the fuel is aerated, then check/repair fuel line and recheck.

With the fuel hose connected the fuel pressure should be 10psi. If the fuel delivery tests fail, replace the diesel fuel filter and recheck.

If it still fails then verify there are no restrictions in the fuel tank

Then replace the lift (transfer) pump. IT SHOULD BE NOTED that if this code surfaced after a routine fuel filter replacement or if you have any of the above symptoms after routine fuel filter replacement, then suspect the fuel transfer pump. This occurs because even a weak transfer pump can still provide enough fuel for the engine to run. But when the fuel system\'s prime is lost due to fuel filter replacement, it may not restart again without fixing the fuel delivery problem.

If you found your injection pump to be bad, the lift pump should be checked for operation to protect the new injection pump. This is because weak or low output from lift pump are common cause of injection pump failure. There are some aftermarket kits that can be purchased to warn the operator when the fuel pressure/volume drops to level that could damage the injection pump.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer and leave a testimonial comments).

My 95 jeep grand cherokee limited is shutting down while driving suddenly. It looks like it happends after more than 30 min driving or when it runs in the same speed for several min. Any one have any idea...


SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
Symptoms may include no start, rough idle, long crank times, driveway die outs or erratic fuel pressure. A new fuel pump has been released which delivers improved performance. This pump should be used whenever fuel pump failures are encountered.
DIAGNOSIS:
Basic fuel system diagnostics should be used as outlined in the appropriate service manual. A brief recap of the basic diagnostics follows:
Fuel pressure specification - 49 psi - plus or minus 5 psi.
High fuel pressure indicates problems with the fuel pressure regulator. Refer to the service manual for regulator diagnosis. Do not replace the fuel pump for high pressure.
Low fuel pressure - Low pressure could indicate a pump problem or it could indicate a plugged fuel filter or restricted fuel line or no fuel in the tank. Be sure to check these items before replacing the fuel pump.
Fuel System Leak down - When checking fuel pressure be sure to check the integrity of the system after shut down. With the fuel pressure gauge connected, shut the engine off and observe the pressure gauge. The system should maintain at least 24 psi for five minutes after shut down. If the pressure bleeds off quicker, it could indicate that an injector is leaking down or that the pressure regulator is leaking. This can lead to driveablity problems and require further diagnosis.
NOTE: IN RARE CASES WHERE MULTIPLE FUEL PUMP FAILURES HAVE OCCURRED ON THE SAME VEHICLE, A BUILD UP OF RESIDUE MAY HAVE ACCUMULATED ON THE INSIDE OF THE FUEL TANK. THE PRESENCE OF THIS RESIDUE IS NOT EASILY IDENTIFIABLE. THE RESIDUE CAN PASS THROUGH THE IN TANK FILTER AND CONTAMINATED THE PUMP ROTOR. IF MULTIPLE FAILURES HAVE OCCURRED WITH NO OBVIOUS INDICATION OF THE CAUSE, CONSIDERATION SHOULD BE MADE TO REPLACING THE FUEL TANK TO AVOID FUTURE PROBLEMS. PARTS REQUIRED:
I would start here and look at your fuel system closely

New fuel pump and filter when turn right it wants to die?


Your car is covered for 10 years regardless of mileage for fuel pump failure. Your condition sounds like the pump is starving for fuel and cavitating.
Call a Ford dealer and explain your symptoms and ask about the Owner Notification Program. The 10 years is up for many cars. Call dealer and give him your VIN number and have them check.

I can find the letter if you need it. The symptom is that the car wants to stall, hesitate when below 1/4 tank of fuel and on turns.


Also
01B85 covers your rear wheel bearings. So does 00S31 recall.
