How bad was the fuel filter? I change mine about every 1 1/2 to 2 years. When I recommend a tune up, I include air and fuel filters, with an oil change if the oil is dirty. Thin with fuel filters, no one ever changes them. Clogged fuel filters puts wear and tear on fuel pumps. The pump works harder to get the fuel though. Seen to many times when replacing the fuel filter, the pump died, or shortly after. First thing to do is check fuel pressure. At key on and running. No year make or model. Would need that info also.

I ran out of gas and while waiting for help, I had my hazard lights on which killed the battery. I put gas in and jumped the car (kept the jumpers connected til the battery voltage got up to 13.4) but it...


Running out of gas is a real pain,but your pump would not fail because of this only. If you often run the tank low on fuel it will cause premature pump failure because the fuel cools the fuel pump! I suggest you check to see if you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail. If you have fuel pressure(20 to 40 psi) then check fuel volume,(about 1 pint in 30 seconds) If you have pressure but no volume your filter is most likely resricted. One easy way to check the pump is to have someone turn the ingition switch from off to run, with the fuel door open put your ear to the filler inlet and listen for the pump to run. it should run for about 3 seconds If you dont hear the pump running check the fuse and relay for the pump.If it is running replace your fuel filter(much cheaper than a pump and wont hurt to replace anyway). Hope this helps Bill

The fuel pump went out i replaced it and also replaced fuel filter the car ran great for 2 days then just cut out and now it almost startsbut wont i checked the rail to see if gas is gatting to the in


One guy mentioned carb cleaner. I would use starting fluid due to the fact that if it is a fuel problem the car will run for a few seconds on starting fluid. If it won't run on starting fluid then it's an ignition issue. If it runs on the starting fluid then check the inertia switch & fuel pump relay.

Do you hear the fuel pump running on the prime cycle (when you turn on the key) (runs for 3 seconds) or when you have oil pressure?Have someone listen back by the tank for the wrrrrr.If you do have to change the fuel pump,make your life easy and just tilt up (lift) the pickup box from the drivers side to access the fuel pump.Takes 20 minutes to change it that way.

You could replace the fuel filter, because you sucked the sediment from your gas tank int the filter.

- When was the last time this car had a tune-up? Could be as simple as that. New spark plugs/rotor/distributor cap/condenser might do the trick.

Other causes could be:
- bad fuel pump relay (definitely first on the list of things to check, and cheapest to fix)
- clogged/old fuel filter
- bad fuel pump

Toy starts runs 10 seconds and stops change fuel filter now wont


When you tur the key forward do you hear the fuel pump running? You should hear a low hum for about 20 seconds near the gas tank and then it stops. If you hear this your pump is good. If it keeps running or you can't hear it at all it's bad or the main fuel pump fuse is blown.

My bmw 318 ran out of petrol now it wont start i have changed fuel filter


if you can't hear the fuel pump cut in for a couple of seconds, check the fuse. Check the relay, or replace it with a known good one. See if you have power to the fuel pump. If you have power, your fuel pump is in need of replacement.
When you run an electric fuel pump out of gas, you should always cycle it about 10 times before you try to start the engine. That is, turn the key to on for a few seconds, and then off, and repeat. You need to get some fuel up to the engine.
