Try checking to see if there is fuel coming from the fuel line, it will be under the hood. What your looking for is the fuel line where the fuel injectors are at. Follow the line until you see a nozzle ( it looks like the air nozzle where you put air in the tire). Turn the car on and if no fuel sprays out then you need to replace the fuel filter. Also you may want to check the fuel relay, while your at it check all the fuse in your fuse box under the hood and in your car. Good luck.

SOURCE: 1988 cutlas calais, turns over but no start.

check your fuel filter first ? and have your tech attach a fuel pressure/volumn gage to see if its the pump? you may need to spray starting fluid to see if it starts to eliminate igniton/ computer issues first? the pump only runs for 5 seconds when you turn the key thats normal? good luck autodoc

SOURCE: i have a problem with my 2002 oldsmobile alero.

I had a very similar problem - someone also replaced the fuel pump to no avail. I found the problem to be a poor ground connection where the fuel pump wires were joined to the connector under the rear of the car. I was able to easily fix this by listening for the pump while moving the cable connector. Haven't had a problem since.

Car won' start, battery is ok, antifreeze is low but not out could this be the problem?

No. it wouldn't keep it from starting. If the engine cranks but won't start, probably gas or spark (ignition) related. Do you hear the fuel pump in the tank turn on for a couple of seconds, when turning key to on, not start? If you cannot hear the pump, better check if you are getting gas up to the engine. Maybe the fuel pump quit, or the pump circuit needs looked at. The pump should briefly turn on with key on to pressurize the fuel system-the fuel line and the fuel rail where the injectors are. Then the pump will turn off, and only come back on again when the engine is cranking, and stay on when running.
Correct fuel pressure is important for easy starting, and good engine performance. Have the fuel pressure checked against the specification for your vehicle. If fuel pressure is good, check the ignition system-check for spark.

Blazer has no fuel pressure but pump kicks on

In the past I have seen fuel pumps that would run on the bench but wouldn't work in the gas tank. Sometimes you can bang on the gas tank and get the pump to start working, the problem is usually bad brushes. In the past I have cut open an electric fuel pump, those little brushes were wore down to the nub.
If you have good voltage and ground at the fuel pump and no pump action, suspect the fuel pump. Fuel filter is good, I didn't look to see if inline fuel filter? Fuel lines aren't clogged? Don't disconnect any fuel lines unless your sure, no fuel pressure.

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start

Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

My 95 lincoln town car will be fine and then all of a sudden I can't get it to crank. I have changed the fuel pump, the fuel filter, I have sparks because I got shocked. was taught a trick of pushing...

check all your rounds on the body, behind kick panels, and in engine compartment. The relays you hear clicking are the power relay whcih turns your engine computer on. The other relay is the fuel pump relay, which is turned on by the engine computer. start there, report back.

PS. When you press the gas pedal to the floor during cranking, it shuts off the fuel supply to clear a flooded engine.

I ran out of gas,replaced the gas,still wont start.

It is possible that your Fuel Pump burned out. Have your fuel pressure checked, and go from there. Do you hear your Fuel Pump kick on when you first turn your key to the On position?

Will not start, do not smell any gas

i had a 2000 chevy venture wbe. i had to replace the in-tank electric fuel pump at 107,000 miles. open the fuel door, remove the gas cap and have someone listen closoly. try to start and if you hear a HUMMING sound once the key is turned, then fuel pump is working. if no hum, the fuel pump is bad. upon start-up it kicks in 2-3 seconds to build up fuel pressure...

Car starts run good for a little while then dies. On the road car acts like it is running out of gas.

Do you have gas pressure at the fuel line going into the injector? If not, do you have gas pressure at the fuel filter at the gas filter by the passenger real wheel? If not, do you hear the fuel pump kicking on when you turn the key? If you don't have high pressure (spray) at the rear filter, but you hear the pump, then you need to drop the tank and change the filter sock at the pump, which is a pain ;-( If you don't hear the pump, then check the relay controlling that.

1990 f350 7.3 willturn over but thats about it. I can hear the fuel pump kick on. Then try to start but nothing happens.

Are you getting spark? Are you also getting gas pressure? Your fuel pump can kick on but it also needs to pump the gas check for both
