Why does my idi start and die after seconds? Could be because pumps turned down to low? HELp


A possibility is that the pump may have been turned up instead of down. And it is flooding the cylinders. Or your air and fuel ratio needs re adjusted. because, your getting to much air for less fuel.

Replace the fuel pump relay. And if your truck has dual tanks there's three fuel pumps, one in each tank and another secondary fuel pump.

Before you replace the fuel pump, I would check the cheaiper parts first. Such as fuel filter and injectors.

03 Alero will start but dies right away


It sounds like your fuel filter has gone it life time and now to dirty to permit the proper fuel flow if any.
Start with checking the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, you should have over 45 PSI i believe but could be wrong, can not remember could be 60 PSI. 
If you can not check the fuel pressure, change the fuel filter first then see if it starts. If it does not, then it may be a bad fuel pump and need to be replaced. The fuel pump is electric and have a life time too and it may be at it's end also.
Good luck and keep me posted.

Turns over but wont stay running or idle


Sounds ike the fuel pump died. As they get old and your car is about that age the start to overheat after being in use for a while. They stop pushing out the fuel consistantly and then stop working all together. Sometimes letting them cool back down will allow you to use it for a short while before it dies again but in your case it sounds like it just gave out. Remember fuel in the tank helps cool the pump when in use.

Tis is a good place to start, good luck.

Just died wont start back up


It sounds like a fuel pump problem. When you first turn the key on you should hear the fuel pump run for about 5 seconds then shut off. There is a fitting on the fuel rail on the engine that looks like a tire valve, try pushing on that to see how much pressure there is after the pump runs. There should be a good amount of pressure on it. If fuel just dribbles out or there doesn't seem to be much pressure it is definaly a fuel pump. The best thing is to use a fuel pressure guage that will attach at that fitting. There should be between 45 - 60 PSI of fuel pressure when the pump is running. Good luck with your problem.
