Your fuel injector might be clogged, try fuel injector cleaner in your gas tank..go to 1/4 tank and pour two in. it can also work for your fuel pump. if it still occurs, then replace the filter....depending on how old the car is and if it is worth it, a new fuel pump can be costly in labor unless you know somebody

1995 Ford Explorer fuel pump working fuel getting to the fuel filter no gas on rail will start with starting fluid

If fuel filter is clogged no gas will reach your injectors. Or maybe the fuel pressure is not high enough due to a weak pump.

How do I know if my fuel pump or fuel filter is bad I have a 1990 Geo Storm when I plugged it it was running fine I'll let it sit for 2 years I put new plugs in it new wires and that's pretty much it I'll...

Carry to mechanic who can check fuel pump output. Some fuel pumps work ok when idling but don't put out enough pressure when trying to accelerate. Pressure is the key. They can check it.

Car runs fine at times then will not start. Sprayed carb cleaner in air filter and then it starts but dies when i start. The next day car starts and runs fine.

It sounds like your car isn't getting the proper amount of gas. You say your mechanic changed the fuel pump and the regulator. Id have him run a diagnostic tool on it to see if it throws any other codes. Its getting fire. Try changing the FUEL FILTER. it maybe clogged. maybe the pressure regulator is not giving it enough pressure to push the gas into the engine or maybe the fuel pump is only working at times. Does it run good and then start to spit and spudder then die? if so its not getting gas some how. Idk if you can adjust the pressure regulator or not. i mostly work on old school cars.

I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

Car is not getting gas to motor even after new fuel filter is installed

If you change the fuel filter and still not getting fuel to the engine, then the other possible problems are:
- Clogged fuel lines due to 'dirty' fuel.
- Defective Fuel Pump which may not provide enough pressure to 'push' the fuel pass your new filter.

Hope it helps.

Check fuel pump pressure and fuel pump regulator. It sounds like you are not getting fuel into the system and if you are you are not getting enough fuel into the system

Ran out of gas, Got car started for a few minutes with a gallon then conked out and won't re-start. Put some dry gas in tank in case gas can w/old gas. Maybe fuse or fuel pump? Don't know where pump is...

Could be a dirty fuel filter, or intermittent fuel pump. To test the fuel pump, put the key in the ignition, then turn it up one, not start but on, and listen near the gas tank area for a click or some type of noise. If none then it might be the fuel filter (note if you don't hear anything it doesn't necessarily mean that the pump is bad). Now as for the fuel pump, it's located under the car near the gas tank and you can easily un-clip it (be careful as it might be full of gas) and that's how to remove it. Hope this helps. Best Regards.
