It can be many things, but if it starts then the CKP AND CMP are not the problem. If you run it and it dies and shuts off then it could be a Defective MAF and it starts and idels crappy then it could be a bad MAF sensor. If it doesnt have a MAF then it could be your MAP sensor. Take it to Autozone or have some one read the Check engine code (DTC) from the vehicle.

Did you top off the gas tank every time you refuel?

DON'T TOP OFF

===
Short term goal is to get the truck home or to a shop.

Get enough gas to fill complete the trip.

Let the gas cap off to equalize the pressure........just in case your charcoal emission is soak wirh gasoline.

Shake the bed side to side just in case the is dirt stick on SOCK FILTER on the in-tank fuel pump.


OLD fuel pump like to fail in a HOT day.

If you don't hear a humming sound from the fuel tank then check the fuel pump relay or emergency cut off switch,

Low oil pressure or incorrect pressure reading can also cut off fuel pump.

What causes loss of excelleration while driving


It sounds like either your fuel pump has quit or your fuel filter is badly plugged. If you crank it for a while and do not smell gasoline back at the exhaust, your fuel pump has probably quit.

I changed the fuel pump but the van still won't


And you know the fuel filter is good? Could be injector problem: just as a check, spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if engine runs a few seconds. If it does, it is a fuel problem. Check injector fuse, as a start. Check fuel pressure. Check injector circuit. If engine won't start with starting fluid, check if you are getting spark. Problem may be in the ignition system.

2002 Chevy Blazer with starting problem. It will start sometimes but mostly not. Runs great when it does start. Starter cranks fine. Has new fuel filter and gas lines.


You need 3 things for your vehicle to start and run.. Fuel, spark and air. If you've recently replaced the fuel filter I'd have the fuel pumps electrical connections checked out. It could possibly be on its way out. Also check all spark plugs, wires and coil pack to make sure nothing is damaged on the "spark system". Then of course make sure the filter is clean and that all of your sensors monitoring the air flow into the throttle body are connected. From personal experience though, I'd say it sound like the fuel pump isn't always doing what it should upon initial start up and that's where I'd direct my attention.

1995 ford contour cranks but won't start, change fuel filter, fuel pump, and spark plugs. Not getting any spark.


Have you ever heard of testing before replacing parts ? Fuel pressure an flow tesing , testing the electrical circuit for the fuel pump , amp draw testing , voltage drop testing etc... Thier are no magical fixes in auto repair . No spark ! check B+ voltage an ground circuits for the ignition system , Ignition System Designs Operation and Testing an SD Premium video

My Kia Sorento will start and then it won't start, replaced the fuel pump, but did not replace the fuel filter can this be the problem


When the fuel pump was replaced it is important that you install a new fuel filter as it is necessary to have a clean filtered fuel into the pump. Also check the injectors and the spark plugs.
If the spark intensity is low check the HT COILS and the ignition system triggers to the HT coils.
If spark is good then the fuel pressure and calibration must solve the issue.
Take help for consensus.
Thank you for using fixya.

I was driving and the car cut off. It won't start but it cranks and won't turn over.It is a 1995 Olds Cutlass Ciera SL, 6 Cylinder.


your terminology is wrong.if it cranks its turning over what you mean is it won`t start(fire up) as you said at the beginning.anyways it sounds like you could have a fuel pump problem that stop working.this happens alot.you should check for spark at the plugs to make sure its not an ignition problem.did you notice a check engine light on when it was running.if so there will be a code in the ecm and may be the cause of your problem.

Ouit running while driving 65mph on freeway


Does engine still crank? If so you have to check for Fuel, spark, compression. when your engine quit ..odds are good you lost one of these. check for fuel since modern electric fuel pumps stop working without any warning.You should be able to hear the pump momentarily when you first turn the key to "ON" If good check for spark, modern "coil pack" spark systems have a few weak links. if engine cranks and you have spark and you don't know how to check for fuel spray some starting fluid in your air inlet and see if it will start momentarily
