Your fuel injection pump may need to be re calibrated. Check,clean or replace fuel filters if not done yet. Check pre-heating circuit runs properly. Diesel train tends to get ingested with water more frequently. Drain fuel filter of any water.

I have a 92 Storm GSI. When driving down the road the car stalls like it is out of gas then starts running. I have replaced the fuel filter, pump and relay. Any other ideas?

For the age of this car it is a combination of both the fuel filter and pump, i owned one several years ago and found that the gas tanks are prone to rust inside, if you have replaced the pump and filter you may want to drop the tank again and check the screen on the pump if it is brown you have rust in the tank: another problem i had ( if you bought an oem pump ) they tend to slip out of position, you can tie the pump it place so it doesn't move......

When was last tune up? Plugs, wires, all fluids & filters especially fuel filter? I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it. Also avoid cheap fuel - lot of questionable fuel at cheap/cut rate stations.

You may have some chunky contaminants in your fuel tank that are blocking the supply line,screen sock, or fuel filter. The screen sock is located inside the fuel tank on the bottom of the fuel pump and filters the fuel going into the supply line for the fuel pump. Your fuel filter is typically mounted under the back seat behind the driver, but Honda tends to move things around a bit so you may want to verify that location with your local auto parts store. If you run the tank below 1/8 frequently, that tends to draw the chunks into the sock, line, and fuel filter.You may be able to just change the fuel filter and use a concentrated quality fuel Injection / system cleaner like Justice Brothers fuel injection cleaner . Avoid "cheap" cleaners - all they do is break up your money, not the contaminants in the system. Fuel injected systems run at a much higher pressure than carbureted systems, so be careful when releasing the pressure from the filter to avoid getting sprayed. If you don't have a manual, then I would suggest getting a Chiltons repair manual for the specific steps required in changing the filter - as well as the specific location, as it may also be under the vehicle in various places. Afterwards, try not to let your car get below 1/4 tank to keep this from happening in the future, and use a can of Injection cleaner about every 10th tank fill. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Car started then stalled and now car cranks but won't start plenty of gas in tank

Turn key on but dont turn motor listen for humming on either side in back of car,.if you hear nothing your fuel pump or fuel pump relay needs to be replaced..Also if you tend to run car to almost empty your fuel filter might be plugged. Running close to empty causes all the rust from the bottom of the tank to plug the filter.

My 2000 monte carlo ss with a 3800 engine tends to start and stall about six times befor running, I pulled 3 codes 0108, 0404, and 1404 from the the computer .

I believe the codes are emmission related. I would have the fuel pump pressure checked. The fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator seems to be the failrue. The restarting of the engine several times is making the system build up enough pressure to start running . I would take to a shop to have the fuel pressure checked.

Replace the fuel filter. The new gasolines with ethanol tend to lloosen any crud in the gas tank, which then plugs the filter. When the engine stalls, the crud falls away, and it will run again until it plugs up again.
