First of all, are you sure its the fuel pump? and what type of gas are you using...? if in states or canada =shell = not that good, while chevron = one of the best.... to see if it is the fuel pump, turn the ignition to the on postion (DO NOT start) and listen to see if the fuel pump "whirrs" to life, if it does this is good. when you put the key in the on position, the fuel pump turns on pressurizing the lines going to the engine...three fuel pumps sounds bad....

Engine turns over, but won't start.


No you can check the fuel pump relay, then the fuel pump for ground
& then replace it or have a shop do the job of finding the problem

93 chrysler t&c awd changed fuel pump and filter, van ran fine again for about 2 months now won't start and don't hear the fuel pump. changed the oil pressure sending unit and still won


fuel pick-up in tank is blocked it has a sock over the end as a gross filter to keep out any big junk from getting sucked into the pump and causing damage to it. the sock can get so plugged up that no fuel will flow, causing the pump to run for a short time then with no fuel flow to cool it it trips the safety and shuts off

97 gmc jimmy cranks but won't start, have replaced everything possible but still won't start, most of the time the brake lights won't work, or the gauges goes crazy. I have changed relays,...


There are two basic reasons for not starting - no spark or no fuel, both of which are controlled by the ECM. You need to check error codes and these items - for the spark, test it at the cylinder 1 sparkplug; for the fuel check the pressure (if too high or low, problem!).

I had my spark plugs changed today and now my car won't start it will turn over but won't start


fuel problem or spark problem neither is associated with a change in sparkplug unless you had a sever misfire that you let go for a long time to cause thhe igition module to fail.and this include the crank sensor that is underneath the ignition module. cycle the key you should hear a humm at the fuel tank and that is the fuel pump working if you hear the fuel pump then more than likely you will need to correct for spark ignition module and crank sensor

Car won't start; mechanic said it was fuel pump; fixed problem but car still won't start...any suggestions of what could be?


When you changed your fuel pump did you also change the fuel filter? If not, that would be the next logical step. While you have it disconnected you can also check to make sure the fuel pump is pumping the fuel.

Doesn't start on first turn, by 2nd or 3rd starts. Idles rough.


Battery should be around 12V the alternator puts out 14V. Sounds like a fuel problem, leaking injectors or injector's O-rings. Weak or faulty fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, faulty fuel regulator. Try this, when starting the car while cold. Put the key all the way to the ON position, wait five to ten seconds then crank the car to start. It should start the first time the longer you give it the more fuel pressure there will be to start the car.
