Defender fuel problem

Youve got me here thats for sure ,old diesel man like myself and as this is a 97 then i wouldnt expect to find a lot of electronic gizmos.Only thing i can think of on the quick here is that their is a fuel pump in the tank and it should only run for a few seconds on start up to clear any air in the system and some reason its staying on all the time ,so check it out with a manual or look at the tank and see how many wires are running to the sensder unit in the tank ,if two wires then thats just the gauge but if two more heavier thicker cables then it has a fuel pump and if so disconnect them and try it without this pump running ,if it works then fit a non return valve in the feed pipe by the pump and this will stop the fuel running back ,just like the old motors i used to work on in the year dot .The fault is if iam correct is either a relay sticking or a faulty ECU ?? Sorry i cannot be more specific as havent done one as YET?? Now how about changing a clutch on 1962 land rover ?? i used to enjoy spending all day taking the floor out??

Car will turn over but won't start. Through the

No noise from fuel pump when you turn over the car .First thing get voltage at fuel pump relay checked, is there 12 volt to the relay.If no, then problem is again the relay.--------- To reconfirm the problem, try other test, that is remove the relay and by pass the relay terminals with a jumper wire .Then with 12 volt external battery give power to fuel pump connector and see, if the fuel pump starts, then its clear that fuel pump relay is faulty.----------- Also other problem can be fuel pump inertia switch.If the inertia switch is faulty then also fuel pump will not start.-------- The fuel pump relay on a 1995 Ford Explorer is in the power distribution
box, in the engine compartment, driver's side near the firewall.----------
The fuel pump inertia switch is in the right front passenger area
it is below the dash but above the carpet in the right hand corner.--------
Its a push button type inertia switch.
Fuel Pump Activation
When ignition switch is turned to START position, PCM operates fuel pump relay to provide fuel for starting engine. PCM senses engine speed and shuts off fuel pump by opening ground circuit to fuel pump relay when engine stops or engine speed drops to less than 120 RPM. When ignition switch is in ON position, EEC power relay is energized (contacts closed). Power is provided to fuel pump relay and timer in PCM. Fuel pump receives power through fuel pump relay contacts.
Inertia Fuel Shutoff (IFS) Switch
All models use an electrical interrupt switch in fuel system. During a collision or vehicle rollover, electrical contacts within inertia switch open, shutting off fuel supply to electric fuel pump. Fuel supply is interrupted even when engine is running.
A reset button is located on switch assembly. If electrical circuit trips, vehicle will not restart until switch is reset. Fuel system should be inspected before resetting switch.
IFS switch is located under instrument panel, near right side of transmission hump.
----------- If the fuel pump relay, the inertia switch and fuel pump all checked ok, and fuel pump is working with direct 12 volt source to fuel pump.Then problem relates to computer.The computer (power control module, PCM) is faulty and has to be replaced.--------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I ran out of gas, coasted to a stop, added plenty of fuel. Can't get it started now. No fuel coming from the fuel filter inlet when cracked open; under dash and engine compartment fuses are fine; no fuel...

there should be a fuel pump reset switch in the rear compartment.behind side panels. or check driver or passenger kick panels you can remove the plastic covers there should be a push button just push and try.... let me know if this worked for you richie.

Ford Puma Cuts out...

There are 2 things that can go wrong one cheap and the other around $100-200. The first problem could be the fuel filter if it is getting plugged up it wont allow the fuel to flow through to your engine sufficiently, but at faster speed it will still allow the fuel to flow enough. The other problem could be the fuel pump, this is the more expenive route. This will have the same effect on a car as the fuel filter. If I were you I would try replacing the fuel filter first to see if that made a change, this should only cost you around $5-20.
