My 90oldssilhouette starts runs fine shut in off then it won't start i put the gas pedal all the way down then it starts

this sounds like the engine is getting too much fuel as when you push the gas pedal all the way to the floor you are putting the system in clear flood mode shutting off the injectors so as too not allow any more fuel and then it starts. its like what you would do if it was a carburetor and the engine was flooded.

You will never have direct electricity to fuel pump only when running then once you shut off ignition that shuts engine off fuel pump to automatically shuts off.I would change the fuel pump sit in car turn key Th start position do not crank engine if you do not hear a grrr,,,grunt sound i would say fuel pump not functioning therefore fuel pump malfunction replace.

I have 2003 ford expedition,when engine is cold my expedition is hard to started... what should i do..

Sounds like you have a fuel pressure issue. These trucks are bad about bleeding all the fuel pressure off when the engine is shut of but will run fine when started. the only good way to check this is to install a fuel pressure gauge on the shrader valve on the fuel rail. Once you get it isntalled start the engine and let it run for a minute or so,shut the engine off and it should hold pressure,if it bleeds off quickly it means the check valve on the pump is leaking and it will need a fuel pump.

Car running fine , shut off,went to start again and it stays on low low ide, if i then hit gas pedal it will shut off. help

sounds to me like a fuel pressure problem. Getting enough fuel to idle but dies when you give it gas. Might be a plugged fuel filter. Id check that first. That will tell you wether or not the engine is getting fuel.
