My car won't start

I checked the fuel line by fuel gauge and it read 0.i have a remote start alarm i don't know if it effected the wire that activate the fuel pump.i checked the fuel pump relay it's fine.iwant to get a fuel pump since the fuel gauge read nothing but was told it may not be the pump it could be that the pump isn't getting current.what you think?

What you have to do is check fuel pressure with a gauge.,. The pump only runs for 3 seconds when you cycle the key. Its computer controlled. Once the car is running the pump wll run full time.
Now even for us experience techs this could be a difficult fault to find. If your not getting feul pressure and no RPM you could have a bad crank sensor. Since you have installed an aftermarket part. Thers is no way for us to determine if you fried the computer by connecting to the wrong power source.. For all we know you may have a bad starter or a bad ignition switch or even a dirty battery teminal.. We would need alot more info to properly diagnose this. If you don't have a high end voltage meter you could fry the computer just by testing wrong

You should have a test port on the Fuel Supply rail, use a tool from a local auto parts "Tool Loaner program" where you can borrow tools for free,w/a deposit of course,then follow the steps provided;

MPI Fuel System Pressure Test

The MPI fuel system used in vehicles equipped with a 4.OL engine employs a vacuum balanced pressure regulator. Fuel pressure should be approximately 55-69 kPa (8-10 psi) lower with the vacuum line attached to the regulator than with the vacuum line disconnected. System fuel should be 214 kPa (31 psi) with the vacuum line connected to the regulator and 269 kPa (39 psi) with the vacuum line disconnected. CAUTION: Some fuel may be discharged when connecting fuel gauge to fuel rail.
  1. Connect a 0-414 kPa (0-60 psi) fuel pressure gauge to test port pressure fitting on fuel rail (Fig. 7).
  2. Remove vacuum line from pressure regulator.
  3. Start the vehicle.
  4. Note gauge reading. With vacuum line disconnected, fuel pressure should be approximately 269 kPa (39 psi).
  5. Connect vacuum line to pressure regulator. Note gauge reading. Fuel pressure should be approximately 214 kPa (31 psi).
  6. If fuel pressure is not approximately 55-69 kPa (8-10 psi) higher with vacuum line removed from regulator, inspect pressure regulator vacuum line for leaks, kinks or blockage. CAUTION: Fuel pressure will rise to as much as 655 kPa (95 psi) when the fuel return tine is pinched shut, shut engine down immediately after pinching oft fuel return line.
  7. If fuel pressure is low, momentarily pinch shut the hose section of the fuel return line. If fuel pressure remains low, inspect the fuel supply line, fuel filter, and fuel rail inlet for blockage. If fuel pressure rises replace fuel pressure regulator.
  8. If fuel pressure is above specifications, inspect the fuel return line for kinks and blockage.

Capacity Test

  1. Remove the cap from the pressure test port in the fuel rail.
  2. Connect a 0-414 kPa (0-60 psi) fuel pressure gauge to the pressure fitting on the fuel rail (Fig. 7).
  3. Start the vehicle. Pressure should be approxi- mately 214 kPa (31 psi) with the vacuum hose connected to the pressure regulator and 269 kPa (39 psi) with the vacuum hose removed from the pressure regulator.
  4. If the pressure is not to specification, check the following before replacing the fuel pressure regulator:
  • 4a - Inspect the fuel supply and return lines/hoses for kinks or restricting bends
  • 4b - Check the fuel pump flow rate. A good fuel pump will deliver at least 1 liter of fuel per minute with the fuel return line pinched off. If the fuel pump does not pump adequately, then inspect the fuel system for a plugged fuel filter or fuel pump inlet filter (sock). Fuel pump flow rate can be done by connecting one end of an old A/C gauge hose to the fuel test port on the fuel rail and inserting the other end of the hose into a container of at least 1 liter capacity. Run the fuel pump by installing a jumper wire into diagnostic connector terminals D1-5 and D1-6. Be sure to pinch off the fuel return line or most of the fuel will be returned to the fuel tank.

Help my 04 chevy cavalier he gas gauge will not work.. I have replaced the insterment cluster and the part in the tank.. When i start it my gauge will read full but will drop soon as you take off and there...


to check it . wire at the fuel tank gauge unplug it the black and purple wire for gauge. put a variable resistor , fuel gauge is rated 0 to 90 ohms. So variate the resistor and see if fuel gauge move. if it does fuel sender have problem or inside tank wire

2004 Ford Taurus, Tach and fuel gauge going crazy


Ford 150 Van No Start No Crank Same problem aftermarket remote start problem !
Watch the second part too . Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Look under dash or the hood an see where the remote start is hooked up , what wires ! You can find a wiring diagram here at http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter the vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on engine , then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button , then on blue link . You'll see all the componets in the starter circuit .

Fuel pump issues, car won't start, but cranks. I want to know where the fuel pump is and how I can see if it is working properly. How do you diagnose the fuel system issues.


the fuel pump is located in the fuel tank.

I assume you don't have a fuel pressure gauge so the first thing you can do is climb under the vehicle and disconnect the plastic fuel line where it connects to the metal line about in the center of the van up where the front seats would be. Have a drain pan under this area to catch any fuel and be ready to be sprayed if there is fuel pressure in the line. Safety glasses would be a good idea and you can wrap a rag around the line right before you fully disconnect the two lines to help avoid spraying gas everywhere.

keep the drain pan under the area of the disconnected line. Turn the key on but do not start the vehicle. You should see gas spray out of the plastic line. If you don't you're on the right track.

If there is no fuel, reconnect the lines and look back by the fuel tank. You will see the harness. find the dark green with white wire. It is the power supply to the fuel pump. Check for power on that wire. If you have power than you have a bad pump.

If you have any questions let me know. Thank you for using Fixya.com!

I have a 1997 chevy blazer and the check engine light will not go out the gas gauge stop working and It's not getting enough gas to the carbeurater sprayed starter fluid and it starts up the high beam...


if the check engine light is on then there is a code set in the ecm(computer) that you need to have pulled and diagnoised.if your spraying starter fluid and it starts then you have a fuel delivery problem,could it be out of gas,plugged fuel filter,bad fuel pump,injectors not being comanded to open by the ecm.this should help to get it running,

My Buick roadmaster 1994 won't start changed the fuel filter but that didn't help put a brand new battery in it and it is not the starter.


Have you checked the fuel pump or fuse? First check for a blown fuse. I belive that is an electrical pump, when you turn the key on with engine off, you should hear a slight whine. The whine is the pump turning on and sending fuel to the enigne. Another way to check is to hook up a fuel presseure gauge to the fuel rail on top of the motor. There will be a rail that conects the fuel line to the injectors the rail is near the spark plugs, there should be a "capped" connection on the end of the rail. Remove the cap, hook up your gauge and check the pressure. Pressure varies w/ model, but it should be above 20psi. If you don't get a reading with the key on that indicates the problem is with the pump or the wiring going to the pump. Do a quick voltage test with the pump connections if you get 12 volts the pump is bad, if not there is damage to the wiring, a fuse is blown or the solenoid for the pump is bad. Avg life for a fuel pump is 100,000 to 150,000miles

Fuel guage went to full-few days later vech died and re-started. today it started ran for few sec and died and won't start. don't hear fuel pump working.


My dear the problem is that the gauge is giving a wrong signal check the socket connection well and the wires.after that check the wires of the fuel pump if is good, then get pump change.thank you
