I suspect that you're not talking about a car or truck. Please post in the proper forum, and provide a little more detail. As it is right now, your "question" is very vague.

What can kill the fire to fuel pump

The fuel pump is controlled by the ECM which receives a signal from the fuel pressure sensor . When the pressure is reached the sensor signals the ECM and the power to the pump is reduced / stopped until the pressure falls . Have a fuel pressure test done on the manifold to check fuel pump--pressure regulator and filter. Run fault codes to check for correct venting around the canister.

Information screen says water in diesel

hi u will probably find under the bonnet somewhere a fuel filter and or a housing that contains a bowl of somesort and on the bottom of it should be a bung, unscrew it anticlockwise and drain the water out, drain it until u can see and smell fresh diesel it usually takes quite a bit of water usually upto a cup or so to trip the light or a message so only drain out about 2 cups or so or u will have difficulties trying to start it, also there may be a primer button on the same housing or somewhere else that if u find it just pump it until it goes hard then start it up and and hold the revs and 2k or so for a half a minute or so and away u go, it may stop after immediatly after starting try starting again but avoid cranking for any longer than 10 or 15 seconds then give it 30 senconds or so and try again it should start if no go after 2 or 3 attempts and u found the primer button try priming until it goes hard again and follow this again, if not just leave it a little longer between attempts and you will slowly purge the air out of the system

hope this helps

Engine quit when stopped at stop light. Acted as if it was choking then died. Tried restarting. Turns over strong, no start. Thought maybe no gas. Added gas after about 30 minutes. Started first try....

Sounds like the fuel pump is going out. Replace the filter first, as it's only $10. If that doesn't fix it, then it's probably the pump, which is $250.

My grand cherokee takes allot a time starting, I have to wait until the check engine light comes on. Sometimes this takes up to 10 minutes. Once the light comes on the the jeep fires right up. I am...

this could be several things. ours is in the shop now; the problem was the wiring harness to the fuel pump has an open circuit; and good luck figuring that one out-- not the best wiring design. but, if this is your problem, you should correct it quick, before the poor voltage going to the fuel pump burns up the pump motor-- list $$$$ on the pump is +/- $400. while you are trying to start the truck, you can hear the pump starting for two seconds, to pressurize the lines, then it stops until u crank the engine. have a helper crank it over while u stick your ear on the tank [ no im not kidding] and listen for the pump running. if u dont hear it, then the pump isnt getting power. check the relay, then check for continuity in the harness.

I believe I have a bad oil pump. I know my serpentine belt needs replaced. can these problems be related? My oil light came on, oil was just changed two days prior. I checked oil and it was okay. There is...

They are not related. If the belt broke, the water pump would stop pumping, the car would overheat, power steering would quit, battery stop charging, etc, but just 'needing to be replaced' means that the above will happen if the belt fails. Your oil pressure is provided by the oil pump, which is not dependent upon the serpentine belt. You should remove the oil pressure sending unit, crank the engine over, run it briefly (10 seconds), you should have oil spewing out where the sending unit was. If not, there most likely is no oil pressure, as indicated by the red warning light. Always assume the oil light going on indicates there is no pressure, and turn off the vehicle immediately. The risk of continuing to drive the vehicle will result in severe engine damage. I hope this hasn't happened, but be prepared for the worst.
