Need to check to see if there is fuel pressure with a gauge, when it won't start, just to verify it is a fuel system problem. What kind of car is it? Some makes have these issues more than others. Gm cars and trucks are much more susceptible to this than a Toyota. The more info I have, the better I can help you

Your fuel pump is fitted in the fuel tank and its the thing you have to change so you either remove it and replace it with a new one as the pumps in the tanks do give problems so remove and replace OR take to your garage and ask them to do it foe you..
And alls done..

My 1995 jeep will die just driving and sometimes will start right back up other times you have to wait about an hour. fuel pump is working fine you can hear it

The pump can be running but not pumping any fuel.
When it stops running you will need to figure out if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors.

Pump to engage,you will hear a low whine.If you hear the pump engage,that doesn't rule that the fuel pump is fine.It sounds like the pump though.

2004 pt cruiser won't start sometimes after you

Good chance fuel pump is getting hot and has to cool down before pumping back up to required pressure. I had to test fuel pressure when cool, then when hot to catch drop in pressure. Are you having any problems with how far you can drive before it quits, or starts to get sluggish?

With it just stalled you need to isolate the problem to fuel spark or compression to know that to do next. no spark inghtion modules fail. no fuel fuel filters and fuel pumps fail. Compression cooling system problems ( no fan) raditor coolant low) therostate stuck clossed. find something and reply and I'll be glad to respond to your post.

I have a 97 breeze that sometimes wont start. then a day later it will start right up. Also sometimes it sputters while driving and wants to die but then just keeps on going. Could this be a fuel line...

when it don't start check to see if the car has spark. Also listen to see if you can hear the fuel pump in the gas tank working. Fuel pump should make a buzzing noise when you first turn the key on for a few seconds. If the car has spark but you can't hear the fuel pump the pump is probably your problem. If you can hear the pump and have no spark I would check the crank sensor. If you cant hear the fuel pump be sure to check the fuel pump relay under the hood in the fuse box before changing the fuel pump. Good luck

I have just purchased a 1990 Oldsmobile ciera for cheap knowing that the ignition needs to be replaced but i don't believe its the ignition if the drive for more than 15miles whenever i turn it off it wont...

Hi. Remove and check fuel filter. Replace. They're cheap. You should be able to blow freely through the old one. If not, the fuel pump has probably gone bad from working itself to death pushing fuel through the clogged filter. The pump overheats and when you shut if off it locks up until the gasoline in the tank cools it back down. Then it will start up and get you home. There are a lot of other things it could be, but this seems to be to lions share of failures. Nobody changes the fuel filters as regular maintaince and they should. To be reasonably sure, before you first start it have a friend listen to the fuel tank fill with the cap off. Turn the key to on, not start, just on. He/she should hear a distinct buzzing for about 2 secs. from the filler. Start up and drive the required distance for failure. When you go to start back up, repeat the test. If there is no buzzing when you turn on the key(again, only to on) the pump is overheated. If it sounds the same, it is a different problem. You didn't say if the problem always occured. Sometimes, if the tank is full it will cool off quicker. On the fuel filter; a lot of times you will find a new one already on there. That's because someone already tried it. This is particularly the case if you've just purchased the car as you have. It can still be the pump. Do the old listen test. If it passes that test, it could be a ECU problem or a group of other things that don't fail that often.
