turn key and listen to fuel pump if will hum meaning its pressuring the line --if sounds erratic possible going bad may need replacement --check fuel pressure valve by fire wall if weak or sputter either fuel filter or pump---also need to check egr valve if it carboned up or has failed may need cleaning or replacement

1998 vw beetle wont start when turn key but bump start works but doesnt want to stay running\

This sounds like the anti theft system is active, you jump start it but it dies out after a few seconds , if this is correct then try another key. the other thing can be a weak battery make sure the battery is fully charged and good,

Car starts but dont stay started has new fuel filter

If it starts up, and then dies, possibly fuel filter just put on might have vapor lock, or maybe fuel pump is not pumping , working or clogged fuel line.

Turn key can hear fuel pump run turn key to start my truck startes for two seconds and die do it three or four times will start will dun good for a week a do it again will run good three days do it again ...

Could possibly be the anti theft system. Check out this link. When the SECURITY fails, you should see a light on the dash that says security. A symptom of a failed anti theft is starting for 1-5 seconds and then stalling repeatedly.

The truck was dying sometimes. We changed the fuel pump out and now the new pump will not kick on. We spliced the wires and installed the new connector just like the paperwork showed, but it will not kick...

i dont believe there is a fuel cutoff switch on that yr but you might want to check the pump take it out and wire it straight to the battery for a few seconds if it doesnt kick on and stay on then return the fuel pump... if it kicks on and stays on then you might want to consider a new sending unit as well as the pump it doesnt cost that much more and then you wont have that worry later down the road

1997GMC Sonoma 4x4 engine cranks but wont start

sounds like a fuel pump problem. take off gas cap and have someone sit in the truck and turn iginition key to on. (do not turn key as if you were starting but to "on only") you should hear the fuel pump engage. if you dont hear the fuel pump then check the fuel pump relay. it is located behind the glove compartment. hope this helps...

1991 GMC sonoma ignition turns on but wont crank

check your battery first,  Then measure voltage to the starter solenoid.  No voltage at solenoid the problem is at the key switch.
