Trans Sport 1998 fuel problem

The car has run fine but after stopping and trying to start it again a few minutes later it will not start. It looks like it does not get any fuel. Sprayed some starter gas and and it started for one second. Checked the fuel pump fuse and it was OK, The fuel pump relay clicks. How is the best method to check if the fuel pump is broken?

Is it a common problem whit this car?

I´ve hade the car for just three months and do not have a repair manual.

Thanks,
Kristian / Sweden

Replace fuel pump relay.the best method to check fuel pump is check the fuel pressure with a pressure gauge tester.

What you just did is most of the test. Just check that there is power at the pump. If so, change it (don't forget the filter) Problem is common to most if not all electric pumps.

1998 dodge neon stalls after awhile wait a little bit then it will start and go for awhile then stalls again.


Not trying to highjack your post. I just bought a 98 neon sport, manual sohc 2.0. Im having the exact same issue i think, car will run for a while then tac drops to zero and it dies, 5-40 minutes later i can restart but i usuall only make it a few blocks and it dies again, wait again and it will restart. Did you solve this problem with your neon and if not can anyone give me more places continue to diagnose. It has new cam and crank sensors, fresh plugs, wires and coil, new battery. I got the car cheap, thinking of fuel savings but i dont want it to became a parts money pit.
