SOURCE: Vehicle will not start

Put a fuel pressure guage on the test port on fuel rail. With fuel injected engines if pressure is too high or low car wont start.
Cycle key off to run (not start) you should hear the pump run a few seconds and stop.

How do I know if my fuel pump is bad? my 97 intrepid will turn over but won't start.


If you spray starting fluid in throttle body and it starts, you have a fuel related issue. If you hook up a gauge to the rail and the pressure is within spec, it doesn't always mean the pump is good. You may have the pressure but not the volume needed to stay running. It'll run but you'll have drivability problems and or stalling. Hope this helps. Good luck.

2000 dodge intrepid wont stay running


Have fuel pressure tested in both situations. I've seen fuel pumps quit once they get heated up, then when they cool, pump again. Perhaps try WD40 sprayed in to throttle body inlet when no start, and that will tell you if it's a fuel delivery problem. Just remove air cleaner intake hose at front of throttle body, and open throttle and spray for a second or 2 then try to start. If it fires up and runs for a second or 2, then it's a lack of fuel issue.

2000 Dodge neon starts and runs fine. But sometimes does want to start Engine cranks, but won't start


How many miles on the car? Have you checked the fuel pressure when it doesn't want to start? Do that first and then move on from there. To quickly test fuel pressure with no special equip get a can of starting fluid from the auto parts store, when it fails to start spray the fluid into the air intake of the engine well it is cranking, if it fires up then the fuel pump is likely not running on for some reason. This can be electrical in nature or just a failed electric fuel pump

My dodge stratus wont start it will turn over but wont start


Listen for the fuel pump when you first turn on the key to the run position. If you hear it then spray a small amount of starting fluid in air intake while someone tries to start it if the engine fires then most likely a Crank Position Sensor. The CPS controls your injectors.

Changed fuel pump but it wont start


Check for spark, if spark then spray start fluid into throttle body, if it starts check your fuel injectors with a noid light also check crankshaft position sensor. If the pump wont pump check the fuse and connection to the fuel pump for voltage.

well you narrowed it down to a fuel problem. not sure about your model, but most cars have a fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail to reduce un needed pressures. that could possibly be bad. its cylinder in shape and has a vacuum hose connected to it. check the hose and that unit.

2000 pontiac grand am - not starting. fuel pump does sound like its runing when you first turn the key. If you spray starting fluid into the intake it will start but will not keep running.


If it fires on starting fluid, its not getting fuel. If you have acess to the tools test the fuel pressure. If not start with the filter, its cheap and if the pump sounds like its running this would be the next major cause. If that dont fix it, its probably the pump. Had a sunfire around the same year that would actually run for ten minutes or so before it died. Never checked the fuel pump because the car would run so I assumed it was working, I mean you could hear it kick on. But after changing every thing else the car ended up needing a fuel pump. Hope this helps

Truck turns over and fires but wont run


If the fuel filter is not plugged replace the fuel pump, just make sure there are no holes in the fuel line from the tank to the pump, this applies to states and regions that use salt on the roads...
