My 1999 the engine keeps just shut off while driving down the road the engine keeps turning but wont crank I put some engine starter in the carb.and it tried to start.could it be the fuel pump


if it was the fuel pump engine should start with starter spray at least for a second or two, so, it sounds like your fuel pump is bad.
turn ignition to run and try hearing the pump run.

Car will start right up when cold go down road dies starts back up once hot shut off starts back up let it set ten min. wont start has spark has fuel pressure put new fuel pump in old pump did same thing...


Could be a relay or other electrical issue.
You say it has fuel pressure and spark, if that were true it should run.
So it either does not have enough spark to fire the plugs under compression, or not enough fuel pressure going thru the injectors, or not at the right time.
You might want to check for trouble codes in the computer.
There has to be something missing from the equation when it won't start. You may have to check all of the plugs for fire and try some carb cleaner sprayed into the intake to boost fuel supply to find the issue.

Won't start unless spray fuel change fuel pump did'nt help when it starts idel rough throtle up slowly it go about 3000 rpm start trying to die if you floor it from idel it will die but spray fuel...


Then its got to be a problem with the fuel delivery. You need to check that you're getting fuel from the tank.


1) Does fuel get to the filter? If not, is there an airlock or debris in the fuel pipe
2) Does fuel get past the filter? - If not, replace the filter.
3) I'm not sure if you have a carb. or injectors, but one or more of the injectors could be blocked. If a carb., fuel inlet jet may be blocked.
4) Finally, is the air filter good and clean.

The car dies going down the road, but will start up again. Whats wrong.


Try spraying some carb cleaner fluid at the intake of the engine or fill up a little in the fuel about to go in for firing. It should clear the nozzles for the engine to run smoother & better........sodeep

if this is a 1980 F150, emissionwiz is correct in saying it has a carburetor, if your engine runs on ether, you do not have fuel supply to the engine. Check fuel delivery at the front of carburetor, should be a line screwed into the carb, may be connected by a rubber hose, remove this line and crank engine, look to see fuel is gushing out of the line, if no fuel the pump is bad, check fuel lines back to pump for leaks, replace leaking lines if necessary. If you get fuel then your float inside the carb is stuck, and the carb will need some attention, hope this helps, let me know

Won't start up


Check to make sure you are getting fuel pressure. Can you hear the fuel pump come on? Will it start with carb cleaner being sprayed in the carb (watch for back fire)? If it will start with carb spray and you can not hear the pump its the pump. Try to get it to go like a old stuck starter. Have someone turn the key and use your fist to bang the fuel tank sometimes that will get it to go. Sounds like you need a pump.
