2004 olds alero. new fuel filter and plugs. still wont start.


Did you check for spark at any ot the spark plug wires/ coils? If there is, check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Take the port cap off and connect a fuel pressure gauge. If one is not available, with a pocket screw driver deppress valve at port and observe if fuel pours out. If no fuel comes out at all, check your fuel pump circuit. Check for good ground and power at fuel pump connector. If power/ground are ok, replace fuel pump. If spark and good fuel pressure is present, there is the possibility of engine mechanical issues(jumped) timing chain). Also, a plugged catalitic wont let engine start but its very unlikely thats your problem. Start with your basics: spark, fuel, engine mechanical and catalitic.

Is there a reset for the computer other than unhooking the battery or a reset for the fuel pump?


Could be the pump. Do you have the pressure at the fuel rail? If you have pressure and spark, then the noise you heard was probably lifter tap. No oil or over heated.

My 2004 alero starts with starter fluid then dies. do i need to replace the fuel pump? and where is the fuel pump located?


If you have no fuel pressure and the fuses are good chances are the fuel pump has failed. It is located in the fuel tank. You have to remove the fuel tank to replace it. Replace the fuel filter to.

I have an 04 colorado. I just put a new fuel pump and filter in it. Now it wont start I drained all the old gas out and put fresh gas in. I hear the fuel pump working and checked to see if I had fuel...


If you have gas, and the fuel pump is working, all i can suggest is cycling the ignition on and off several times to fill the system. Don't turn the engine over, just turn the key on until the fuel pump cuts out, and repeat. Do this several times. If gas is the problem, it should fire up. If it doesn't, better check for spark. Let me know how you make out.

Car has gas but won't start. Sprayed starter


the most likely reason is a failed fuel pump, plugged fuel filter or defective fuel regulator-you need to have the fuel line pressure tested-you can get the use (free) of a guage set from most commercial auto parts stores.

Sounds like the fuel pump is bad. You need to test fuel pressure. I can tell you the fuel pressure spec, but what year is it 89 or 99? And what engine?
