2000 mercury grand marquis 4.6 Intermittent problem. 35,000. miles. Problem engine died several times wile driving. Also after car is parked from a drive will not start. Found that the fuel pump is not...


I'd have to test when problem is ongoing. When you first turn on key, no crank, you should hear the pump run for a few seconds then stop. For initial prime, the computer doesn't need rpm signal. Engine cranking, the computer needs to see rpm signal or it won't ground the fuel pump relay. W/o rpm signal, no spark at the plugs and no fuel injector pulse. I know your talking about fuel, but, when problem is ongoing, check spark and fuel injector pulse, engine cranking.
Intermittent problems are a pain, have to test when problem is ongoing.

My car was driving just fine when I was driving on the highway. Then my car stop running and it won't start now. But I cant hear my fuel pump when I turn the key to on. Do u think it could be a fuel...


If you don't hear the fuel pump when you turn the key on, and usually this can be heard, then the fuel pump may be frozen or bad.

Check this by putting a pressure gauge on the fuel rail of the fuel injectors and seeing if it goes up to say 40 psi or so.

If you don't have a pressure gauge for the fuel line, then spray some starting fluid into the intake of the engine at the throttle body, and if the car starts for a few seconds, then dies, the problem is a fuel delivery problem.

Good luck on this repair.

2000 Chevy Trailblazer will not start when parked uphill. When it does run there are no problems when driving uphill. Engine turns over initially but immediately cuts out then just cranks with to no avail....


Solution was the Fuel Pump Relay. For this problem listen to the car as you turn the key forward just before cranking the engine. You SHOULD hear a buzz/hum that lasts for 2-3 seconds. This is the fuel pump relay priming. When the car was pointed uphill without a functioning relay there would be an air bubble in the line thus no turn over.

Many possible causes. Spark plugs, HT wires, Distributor cap or rotor, Stale fuel, Ignition coil or a fuel clog somewhere.
