1.Wiring short in wiring harness from fuel pump to fuse block.
2.Fuel pump strainer 'sock' took in foreign debris from the fuel tank, clogged, and won't let fuel pass through. Fuel pump is now stuck, and the result is a blown fuse.

You could have a short in the wire harness to the fuel pump or the fuel pump it self is bad or the relay has gone bad also. Start with the replacement of the fuel pump relay and also find the wire harness to the fuel pump sending unit from the frame to the gas tank and disconnect the connections. If the fuse does not blow when the connection to the fuel pump is disconnected, then it's a go chance that it's the fuel pump. If the fuse blows and the wire harness is disconnected, then the problem is towards the fuel pump relay and fuse block. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% again.

Kai Rio built sept 07.Suspect fuel pump fault.Car randomly cut out when driving & won't immediately restart,leave a few hrs & restarts & drives ok again. Any engine fault codes for fuel on this car?


Generally this kind of problem is caused by a faulty electronic component getting heat soaked. Best bet is to run your diagnostics while the car is still warm and won't start. If you wait for it to cool down (when it starts), the problem will not present itself. If it's not trying to start at all, it's usually the ignition module. If it runs rough, it's usually one of the coils.

Feul pump


Sounds like vapor lock. Leave the cap from the gas lid undone for a little while.

I have a 2005 kia rio.i started my car, started ok ran for a min and then just shut off.it 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.

5.2 l i/2 ton lwb reg cab...I need to know if there is an external fuel pump and where it as well as the fuel filter are located. The truck will not start unless i put fuel in the throttle body and only...


There is no external feul pump, it is in the feul tank.Also there is no external feul filter, it is in the tank at the bottom of the feul pump assembly.I owned one of these trucks and was not pleased by the location of the feul filter either.If you can find a CARTER supplier they make a cheaper replacment that is same quality as oem.Good luck!

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.

Changed feul pump feul filter changed computer. Van still shutdow


this could be a number of problems,check the voltage with a volt meter,not a test light at the fuel pump connection. make sure you have 12V,if so unhook the fuel supply line,turn key to ON not START, and make sure the pump will continue to flow,( obviously cqatch the fuel with a pail,or put a hose on it to pump it into a pail,don't let it leak all over the place.)if the pump continues to flow with out shutting off,your pump,filter,and electrical for your pump is ok.it could be a restriction in the return line,or the regulator may not be functioning.un hook the return line as close to engine as possible,install hose on it and route to a pail to catch fuel,with supply line hooked back up,start van and see if it works,if it keepd shutting off,you've now eliminated return line problems.check the regulator.

2001 kia rio fuel pump does not work


Are you positive its the fuel pump? Have you tried running the pump with the return line off to see if it pumps fuel? They don't always have to make a noise.
