engine could have flooded could have leaking fuel injectors or clogged air filter.hold accelerator to floor to clear flood mode see if engine try to crank if not listen for fuel pump operation when you turn on ignition switch fuel pump should turn on for few seconds.if you dont hear fuel pump could have bad fuel pump fuse or relay.now if you ran out of fuel just getting to gas station could have damaged fuel pump.if getting fuel check for spark.could have faulty crankshaft position sensor or camshaft sensor.but have vechicle code scan first before buying new parts.
Did you check for fuel pressure on the line from the tank while you had the filter off? Do you hear your fuel pump prime when you turn the ignition on? First I would listen for the hum of the fuel pump when you turn the key to the run position (not starting the engine) May have to get a helper and listen at the gas filler neck with the cap off. If you dont hear your fuel pump, check your fuses and relays. If the relay clicks when your helper turns the key on ( put your finger on the relay and ear down close to feel/hear the relay actuate)., and fuse is good, yet you do not hear the pump prime, I would say your fuel pump is shot.
If it is a diesel,check for fuel pressure coming off the direct drive pump hose while cranking the motor.
First of all, a little "auto repair 101" is in order... It is absolutely impossible for the fuse to be the problem. If the fuse is blown, there is a reason for it. Fuses are NEVER the CAUSE of an electrical circuit problem. Blown fuses are ALWAYS the RESULT of an electrical circuit problem. Simply replacing a blown fuse without finding and correcting the reason that it blew in the first place, will not fix your car.
Now that we have that part done with, I would say that if you cannot hear the pump running. the pump is most likely the cause of your "Cranks, Won't Start" problem. Keep in mind that the pump will only run for about 2 seconds when you turn the key to the "ON" position. I recommend using 2 people and removing your gas cap and place your ear near the fuel fill tube to listen while someone else turns the key on. If the pump is not running, sometimes you can get it to run if you have someone turn the key on while you hit the bottom of the fuel tank with your fist.(Hit with your fist as hard as you can) A rubber mallot also works good for this. I don't recommend using any metal objects for this purpose, because the can spark. (Sparks and fuel tanks do not mix well :) )
When you put the key in the ignition and turn it until the dash lights come on then you should hear a noise coming from the gas tank and it should make a noise for like 4 seconds. if you dont hear it then you may wanna check the fuse and the relay. Good luck
i would start by getting somebody to cycle the key on and off while you listen to hear if the fuel pump is turning on or not. (when the key is turned on the fuel pump will turn on and you should hear it start up and then turn off.) if you can hear the fuel pump come on then i would check to see if the fuel filter is plugged. if you cannot hear the fuel pump you should check your fuses. if all the fuses are good then get a rubber mallot and bang on the bottom of the gas tank. the vibrations usually will get a fuel pump to start up again and your car should start up.(if it fires up after banging on the gas tank, you will need to replace the fuel pump. the banging on the gas tank only works a couple of times. enough to get you home or to a shop to replace.)
may be your fuel pump or the fuse for your fuel pump.turn the key on and if fuel pump is working you should hear a short low humming noise.that is the fuel pump sending gas to your engine.If you dont hear that noise,that may be your problem
sounds like the fuel pump went out. It is located inside the tank. turn the key but dont start and have someone listen for a 1 to 2 second hum by the gas tank. If they hear nothing then your pump is bad. REplace your fuel filter first, it is outside the tank and could be clogged. YOu could get lucky, but I bet your pump is bad.
yes,,,check the fuel pump fuse if its bad replace it,if not check fuel pressure, turn key on and hit shradder valve see if gas comes out with alot of pressure,becarefull not to get hit by the gas,,if not you might have a bad fuel pump,,and you dont have to have a blown fuel pump fuse to have a bad pump.,,,,
make sure there is gas in tank. turn ignition switch to the on position.listen for fuel pump.if yes check for spark at plugs.if no you dont hear fuel pump.check fuse and relay.if both dont work.scan it to check for faulty crankshaft sensor fuel pump and pcm.
