Mercury sable 1996 changed fuel filter had brown gas in it did this ruin fuel pump. Can hear pump when trying to start car

Most likely the fuel pump is ok, but there is likely air in the fuel line that you need to bleed off under the hood.

It is possible that the fuel pump went bad, and the way to know is to check the fuel pressure (same place you bleed it under the hood). The fuel pump is in the tank, so it's a real pain to change.

We changed the feul pump it comes on u can hear it however the car wont start got any suggestions still acts as if it is not getting feul

Just a couple of suggestions, it could be that the injectors are not firing. Each injector has a solenoid on top of it with an electrical connector, the injector signals come from the control Electronic Control Module. You could have a defective module. Was the "check engine light"on prior to the failure?? Have you verified that you have ignition?? If you have ignition, replaced the fuel filter, and it's still not starting, I would perform a fuel pressure test to make sure you have appropriate fuel pressure. If you are not getting the appopriate pressure, then I would look at the fuel filter or the fuel pressure regulator.

Hello, MY 2005 Nisan frontier will not start. About 3 days ago, the battery light would stay on after the engine started...had the battery checked and it was fine...then serviced it yesterday but it still...

Battery might seem fine on a routine check, but the crancking amp power is not there anymore, seems that your alternator is not charging it anymore, have the alternator checked and replaced if needed, the battery might need replacing too.

I have a 1999 ford expedition it would not start but once i put the jumper cables on it or a battery charger on it over night it starts.once you drive it awhile it will be hard to star as if its starving...

It's the battery. Hence why it starts when you charge or jump it. Snag a new battery and don't forget to bring your old one to avoid a core charge.

My 1981 Cadillac Deville 5.7L Diesel wont start. Ive checked all that I know including starter,battery,alternator,etc. Also, checked fuel pump, feul filter, fuel lines, injection pump. I topped off all of...

What does changing the oil,changing filters etc,have to do with the vehicle not starting?
What actual testing was done on --battery,alt,starter.fuel pump,etc.,how was this testing conducted and what were the results?
No fluids are consumed, in any motor vehicle,
If you have to top off,you have a leak,repair it!!

Moved my rx8 yesterday.i got ack in it this

verify condition by spraying some starter fuel in should start and die if its a fuel problem.
if it still does nothing start checking any and all fuses.if all the fuses are good take out a spark plug and verify no spark.
if no spark check the ignition module.
it might be able to have it checked at autozone for free.but you will have to remove it.
