Question about 1999 Buick Regal

1 Answer

The car starts but then bogs out and dies after a few seconds. I loose fuel pressure during that time until the car dies. The pump will cycle on when i turn the key. It holds at 42lbs of pressure. Goes to 50lbs after i start it then drops down to 45lbs and then quickly to 30lbs and then a continual drop until it dies. I replaced the fuel filter.

2001 explorer sport , fuel pump? vacuum leak? 619 scan tool data provided, any suggestions/solutions


The fuel pump is suspect but I believe there's also a fuel filter inline on the underside of the drivers side chassis. Fuel works off pressure so if the filter is clogged, the pressure remains between the fuel tank and the filter. Once the fuel has siphoned off between the filter and injectors, it dies but because there's positive pressure at the fuel pump, it won't come on until the pressure slowly seeps past the clog after hours. It's worth a look!

2005 chevy silverado 1500. Just on first start or if sits for a few hours engine will bog down. When using auto start takes a few tries


Possible fuel pump issue causing fuel to drain back into the tank. Check valve inside pump may be bad. Once vehicle is turned on it may take a few seconds to prime up the fuel lines until operating pressure is reached. Put a pressure guage on the fuel rail and start the vehicle. Should be approx 55-60lbs running. Turn off vehicle and leave it sit with guage attached and monitor for pressure dropping off to 0. If so, suspect a bad pump

The fuel pump will run on a prime cycle for approx 5 seconds whenever the key is turned on, but only after it has been off for at least 10 seconds and whenever there is oil pressure.

2000 dodge ram 1500 replaced fuel pump but still bogging down when you get to 40mph no dash lights coming on has died twice when you come to a stop second time acted like it didnt want to start back up but...


You indicate the fuel pump was replaced, but did you replace the fuel filter? A clogged filter can restrict fuel flow to the point the engine literally starves for fuel and smothers out.

Also would be a very good idea to check fuel pump pressure at the intake manifold. Also might want to check fuel pressure regulator.

Good luck!

03 cavalier starts then dies


Generally when this happens all the time the fuel pump relay has gone bad. Upon starting any GM car up the fuel pump operates off the third wire on the oil pressure switch. When the oil pressure reaches operating pressure which happens in a few seconds the computer shuts off the current from the oil pressure sending unit and opens the circiut flow to the fuel pump relay. The relay will run ythe fuel pump until you shut the engine off. Replace the fuel pump relay and you shall have a good running car again

2000 S10 no start


I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, key on engine off, 60--66 psi with spider fuel system.
Engine cranking did you visually check for spark at the spark plugs? Engine cranking is there a fuel injector pulse?https://s8.postimg.org/50arofh11/fuel_pump.jpg
Click on the link for fuel pump relay, you can check the fuse. At the fuel pump, gray wire is voltage, black is ground.

Engine starts after about 5-7 seconds


This almost sounds like the fuel pump check valve is leaking back during the day. Try this to see if it helps. Before you start your car during the day, cycle the key on and off a few times first. This runs the pump for a few seconds and builds up fuel pressure. If it starts immediately after the key cycling, that is most likely your problem.

2001 cavalier barely starts,sometimes runs for a few seconds, then dies. i already changed fuel filter,pump relay, new plugs also. i can hear fuel pump come on for a few seconds,when turning on the key....


Three things.
First, you need to check the MAF sensor for contamination.

Second, check fuel pressure, if you dont have a gauge, autozone and Advance have them on their tool loaner program.
Should see 35-40 psi with key on engine off, cycle key a few times, if it takes a while to build up, replace filter and retest.

Third, possible convertor blockage, easiest check is to remove the 02 sensor and try to start with the hole open, if it runs, then that is it, specs allow for 2-3 lbs of back pressure max. That means if you can hear pressure escaping, it is a problem area.
