I have a 2004 kia Sedona and it stalled on the freeway and won't start . I had the timing belt replaced last year. I think its the fuel pump but not sure how do I go about it.


There should be a relay for the pump, if you jumper the relay the pump should run and you could then check fuel pressure with a gauge.

Truck stalled wouldn't start.


I can understand you being frustrated.
There really is no way to tell if the fuel pump was the problem at this point.
If the security system fails, you should see "security" light up on the cluster.
The key lock has a sensor that reads the chip in the key. If the sensor fails or the chip fails the computer won't let the vehicle start.
Most of the time when the security system is at fault, the vehicle won't start, but it won't cause the engine to stall.
You might want to have someone check the fuel pressure and spark at the plugs if you don't see the security light on the cluster.
Could be the fuel pump relay and a list of other things.
I would probably check the computer for trouble codes too.

2000 kia sephia fuel pump/overheating/not turning over


sorry to tell you but you have a blown headgasket or cracked cylinder head. that is why the coolant blows out of the radiator and the engine won't start due to engine compression getting into the cooling system.

My toyota celica .... everytime i start it up it stalls sometimes i can get it in reverse and then drive and it seems like it is gong to stall again but doesnt or i will make it down the road and it will...


It certainly sounds like a fuel delivery problem. You didn't say if you changed the in line filter. If it is partially plugged, it won't allow enough gas to reach the engine. After or before changing that, you would want a fuel pressure test, to see if the proper fuel pressure was available at the injectors for them to work. Proper fuel pressure is dependent not only on the pump, but also on the fuel pressure regulator-which would be checked when a pressure test is done.

Has a hard time to start have to play with throttle to start but stalls doesnt even idle


Since it starts I would assume the problem is not in having no spark. You may want to look into testing the fuel pressure. If you have not changed the fuel filter in a while you may want to do that now.

Any service engine light? If so have that checked.

While a faulty ignition module can have an adverse affect on timing and starting, it seems to be a common thing these days for a fuel pump to go bad. Many times due to people driving bellow 1/4 tank of fuel. The pump inside the tank needs fuel to keep it cool.

2005 Kia rio cinco just stalled out coming home from work. Won't start at all now...just cranks. Had to tow home. No check engine light came on and no code on code reader. Ideas?


Check the fuel pump and all fuel related items, and check the coil pack. Check fuse's for same.
Remember, NO air, or NO fuel, or NO spark equals NO run.

A bad ignition module can give you fits!!!! Replace it even if it doesnt fix it! You will be glad you did! Most likely that is the problem ,however!

I am having the same problems with 2003 Kia Sedona


Drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump. Filter is attached to the fuel pump. Sounds like the fuel pump is failing.

Where is the fuel filter on a Saturn Vue 2004?


It is part of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank, all the cars are starting to use this type of setup, the filter is only serviced when the fuel pump fails.
