SOURCE: my service engine light came

normally when a fuse blows there's a reason for it,, more often than not when it involves a circuit that has more than one thing and you replace something and it works again, its best to just bite the bullet and leave well enough alone, I know that the 275.00 hit hurts, but depending on the miles already on your car ,, it was going to have to be done sooner or later. If you factor in what the labor would have cost you, and the time it would take to change the 2 pumps out again, ( plus the down time you'd have when the pump dies again) your better off enjoying the working vehicle and letting it slide

SOURCE: car died at stop. turns over, but won't start

Check for 12V on both sides of that 15A fuel pump fuse. The fuel pump relay is ahead of that fuse and it is controlled by the engine controls system. The PPL/BLK wire from the fuse is connected to the powertrain control module (PCM) When the fuel pump relay operates, 12V also passes through the 3A PCM memory fuse (check it) and is applied to the PCM. In addition, there is an inertia fuel shutoff switch (IFS) connected to the PCM and it may have cut off the fuel supply.

SOURCE: 1995 Neon. new fuel pump. I'll be driving, engine just dies out of nowhere. Try the key 2 no avail. Pop hood, pull fuel pump fuse, put fuel pump fuse back in, starts right up, dies again shortly after

Either the relay is bad or a short in the circuit. The first thing I would do is replace the relay

SOURCE: 2004 pt cruiser keeps blowing fuel pump fuse,replaced fuel pump, no change.runs rough at idle and stalls,blows fp fuse,also replaced ign.coil,plug wires and plugs also changed relays

There are two fuses for the fuel pump relay. One fuse is load side of relay, that fuse also sends voltage to load side of asd relay, the asd relay sends voltage to several systems, two of which are the fuel injectors and ignition coil. I'm not telling you to replace, anything, but, you need to do some testing.
The other fuse goes to control side of relay, smaller amp fuse. I don't know the amp rating of the fuse that keeps blowing.
See that fuse, it supplies voltage to load side of fuel pump relay and also to asd relay.

05 heritage soft tail, the connection on The fuel pump burned right above the tank, why didn't the 15 amp fuse burn before that, kind of dangerous?

Not an issue with wiring. Heat build-up under car or the fuel pump overheating from chronic low fuel/restricted filter. Did the car die? Or just lack power?

When i try to start my 98 chevy venture minivan it turns over for about 20 sec then dies unless i pump the gas when i turn it over. what are all the possibilities of what could be causing this to happ

Turning over is engine cranking, not running. I'm not sure I understood your post?
Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, 3.4L engine, 41--47 psi.
Any applicable trouble codes? To check codes yourself, at the least you need an obd2 code reader.
I'd want to check if system is running rich or lean?

I have a 2005 kia rio.i started my car, started ok ran for a min and then just shut turns over but does not start.

Could be a million things but my first guess is no fuel from pump. The car would run for a little while while it burned up what was left in the fuel line then die and not restart. Try turning key to ON position (not just ACC) and listen, do you hear the fuel pump in the tank come on and pump for 3 or 4 seconds every time you put the key in the ON position? If you don't hear the pump you probably aren't getting any fuel, check the fuse under the hood (the underside of fuse block cover will say which is the pump fuse, also check the pump relay that's also in there near the fuse).
If you do hear the pump it could possibly be a clogged fuel filter but also many other things, fuel is my first guess though.

I believe my fuel pump went bad, I was driving down the road and the truck seemed like it was losing fuel. After it died i couldn't ever get it to start again. I bought a "used" pump from...

a locked up fuel pump would blow the fuse. also check at the fuel rail to see if the pump is working. it may have been a clogged line that burned up the first pump which in-turn burned the fuse.

and if there is/was a clog then it probably clogged the injectors as well, if fuel is making it to the injectors then you might try running a high quality fuel system / injector cleaner. I hope this helps.

good luck

How do i replace fulel filter on a pt cruiser

The fuel filter and fuel pump are at the bottom of the tank. The pump is cooled and lubricated by the fuel/gas itself. Running the tank really low could cause the pump to burn out.

Engine overheating when AC is on, Water Pump is working, Thermostat is working, Coolant is Good, Burning Smell when AC is turned on for a short moment but not a belt burning Only overheats when sitting...

Your thermostat might be sticking which rarely happens. You should also check your fan and belts from the fan. Located behind the radiator. Hope this helps!!

1988 firebird formula 5.0 tpi car just died replaced feul pump,relay, fuse checked wiring changed module,coil pump wont turn on unless direct power car still wont start help please out of ideas

It sounds like you may have burned out your fusable link. It's a special wire that comes off the starter solennoid and is designed to burn off in the event of an overload. DO NOT REPLACE IT WITH REGULAR WIRE, THIS IS A LEADING CAUSE OF CAR FIRES.
You will want to check for what caused the overload condition that caused the fusable link to burn out in the first place.

Ran out of gas, now wont start

if it was out of gas completely, after filling with at least 5 gal, turn key on, without starting. You will hear pump come on. After pump stops, turn key off. Repeat this procedure three times an the engine should start after the third time.

Let me know,
