Check for power to the fuel pump and pump operation. check filter condition. check for fuel in the tank (do not rely on the gauge) check for proper venting of the fuel tank as pumps will not pump if there is a vacuum in the tank

SOURCE: 2002 Madza 626 4cyl car will not start. Has spark

It could be: clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump, or the cutoff switch. Could be fuel pump relay. It's in the engine compartment fues block, and labeled "Fuel Pump"

If it's either the filter or the pump, replace both at the same time, it's cheaper.

The fuel cutoff in located in the trunk, along the driver side rear fender, you have to pull all the carpeting and such out on that side to get to it. It's marked "Fuel cutoff" Not sure on the 626, you might just have to push the reset button on the module.

However I doubt this is your problem I would think it's either the relay, the filter or pump.

SOURCE: Fuel injectors leak at fuel rail

Get some new O-rings, and this time put oil on them before you insert them into the fuel rail. The regulator is alright.The problem is that the o-rings can roll up, or twist when push em in dry. Had this problem once, easy fix, but was frustrating.

Car is hard starting

Find the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. 3.4 ant 3.1 liters it will be on the front rail on the drivers side near the throttle linkage. On a 3.8 it will be on the back rail about in the midle. Remove the vacuum hose from it and start the vehicle. If gas comes out it is bad. if no gas comes out than you will need a fuel pressure gauge to see if fuel pressure is holding. If it is not than the fuel pump is the next most likely suspect.

1991 Miata Starting problem

find the filter pull it off and clean it if u cant clean it replace it they usally are cheap on older vehicles but with the filter off turn the car have someone turn the car to the on position so the pump is pumping and see how good it is coming out of the line if not very good then your gas tank line to the fuel filter is clogged but if its fine check the next fuel line the one on the fuel rail there is a bolt on the fuel rail crack it open and have someone turn the key if gas comes out then you are getting fuel and that would mean your injectors are bad

Car ran outof gas. put gas in, would not start. checked fuel pump, is pumping fuel. replaced fuel filter, replaced plugs, replaced wires, checked for pressure on fuel rail valve, got it (did not check...

Perhaps your fuel injectors are not opening properly to release the air pressure in the fuel rail and the fuel is unable to get in. With the vehicle off, remove the cap from the Schrader valve (the same kind of valve used on tires) in the fuel rail, then depress the pin in the center of the valve with a small screwdriver. CAUTION: this may be under high pressure (some vehicles have 90 PSI systems), and there probably will be gasoline in there. Make sure there are no ignition sources present (no smoking!) and wear safety glasses. If you get only air or nothing comes out, put the cap back on the valve and try to start the car one more time. If that doesn't work, your fuel pump was probably damaged when the tank went dry.

Car won't start.

you will need to remove the air cleaner and pour a small amount of gasoline in and get to start, the fuel rail is vapor locked and needs the engine running to pull this air pocket through the fuel rail,it may take more than once if the fuel filter in the rail got dried out between the gas tank and engine

Ran out of gas and car won't start have spark don't have fuel any tricks

Fuel injected, you have air in system. Look under hood where fuel rails are, you should see a black plastic cap on fuel rail, take cap off push what looks loke a valve stem, air will come out, keep doing till gas comes out. Dont put your face near it or you will get gas in eyes.
