    Crank sensors will fail when hot also. Its just above oil pan between engine and transmission. Remove and inspect, I have seen a lot of them cracked due to heat cycles. Part is less than $25.00.

If it turns over, but won't start when hot: first, change your air filter. 2. Check your engine ground connection. 3.Check for a loose connection in the ignition system 4. You could have a faulty idle control valve. 5 . Faulty coil, Mass air flow, idle control sensor... but you should have an engine light on if it's one of those.

03 ford focus Starts and run for short period at a time then dies but restarts and again for short time.


If that does not fix it, then it is not the fuel filter but at least a fuel filter is changed and then you get to change out the fuel pump. That sucks.

3.5l V6 Auto. Why is there no power at the fuel pump?


Just answered a similar question. Does it turn over? Either way, I would look for blown fuse and then check (usually) under the hood for a relay. You can some times test by taking another relay for lights or something not needed to run and switch them IF THEY ARE EXACTLY the same. If the pu,p works you will know.

01 chevy malibu it starts but after 3 sec turns off fuel pressure guage says fuel pump is workin we even by passed tha theft system we changed the crank sensor and fuel pump relay any other ideas?


Hi Kaitlin:
3 seconds is a brutally short time to have the engine run. That's almost the same time that it takes to crank it over to try to start it. Is there any chance that it is actually stopping firing when the key is allowed to return to "run" from the "start" position?
If you have fuel, and you have spark, it will run. It sounds like you have fuel available, so unless the injectors are not triggering (bad sensor or wiring) something is killing your spark. Try checking each component separately and you should find which one is giving you grief.

1998 malibu can hear fuel pump wen switch is on but wont start as long as we put fuel in top of motor it will run till itruns out could it be relay on fuel pump changed filter


the fuel pump will run for 2 secondes with key on to prime system. then when you crank engine it should run all the time. you check fuse and if current go to fuel pump at tank connector. if there is current then the fuel pump must be defect.

2001 chevy malibu fuel pump fuse keeps blowing


Usually a sign of a faulty pump, or a problem in the wiring between the relay and the gas tank.
You could unplug the harness at the tank to verify.

Does a 2000 chevy malibu have a fuel reset button and where? it just died while at a stop sign, so we thought it was out of gas. we put gas in and it still will not start.


Hello mellissa, the 2000 malibu does not have a fuel reset switch. Check the fuel pump relay in the fuse box under the hood. Check for fuel pressure. You should be able to hear the fuel pump come on for a few seconds when you turn the key to the run position....Your fuel pump might have failed.
I hope this helps.

Signs of a Bad Fuel Pressure Regulator
the vehicle will not start, if a bad regulator. Usually, this is a problem that is encountered in the morning when you start your vehicle. Many a times, the engine starts, but stalls shortly after starting. check the fuse and relay for pump. also remove line to fuel pressure regulator and if fuel in line, replace fuel pressure regulator. check for spark and also the timing belt. its one sign of not starting. if car runs fine on spray, I would not say its the timing belt or chain.
