Question about 1999 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

I put in fuel pump, replaced the relays, and also put in fuel filter. Tried running a diagnostic on it but it seems the plug isn't getting power either. There is no fuel getting to the P71 motor.

I was thinking maybe a corroded ground or power wire some where but if you know cars then you know tracing every wire is not simple. Any ideas? It turns over but will not start.

The problem with the ALDL connector could be the cig lighter fuse.
Do you have power to the fuel pump relay ?
Will the pump run if you jumper the relay ?
Do you have power and ground pulse to the injectors ?

1985 toyota camry unplug mass air flow sensor engine will start plug back in engine dies

There is a switch in the airflow meter that keeps the fuel pump relay closed as long as there is airflow. With the meter unplugged, the pump should not run except when the key is turned to start. It would seem to me that you have a wiring issue. Try jumping the fuel pump relay so the pump runs whenever the key is on. (Remove the relay and jump the pump wire to the accessory wire--see top left diagram.) This defeats the safety feature but will keep the pump running.

You should replace the fuel filter and check for vaccum leaks. Also you should check the compression of your vehicle this might solve your problem.

have you tried replacing the Fuel filter, your pump wont cut back in if there is pressure at the pump, the filter on my A8 is just under the rear Right hand sill in front of wheel arch, it has a plastic/fibre cover hiding it, otherwise just follow the fuel line from the pump ,otherwise it may be the fuel pump relay heating up and breaking contact, try to have a diagnostic done,my relays are under the passengers feet , if you intend keeping the car get yourself a workshop manual from bentley publishers, its worth gold in the long run , what does the A6 have normal coil ignition or a ignition coil for each plug, if so that may be your answer,a diagnostics check will tell you

I'd put more fuel in it and see what happens. But I'm going to guess that you are having a problem with your injector. These cpi systems are notorisous(<spelling?) for problems.

1996 mazda mx6 ls cranks but won't start

you may need to run a wire from a keyed ignition source that has power while cranking and running to the fuel pump relay and bypass the pcm to test wether it will run, if it runs put a more permanent wire in place.Not too sure what tests youve done but it seems that fuel is what your focusing on so a quick test is too spray engine start up the intake tube to see if the engine trys to run if it does it eliminates a lot of other potential reasons for a no start condition.Also try squeezing the fuel return line to see if the added pressure will try to make engine run.Could be time to replace fuel pump etc anyway let me know how it goes good luck with it
