Well...the lady might just be right because when you step on the gas that's when 35 to 45 lbs of fuel pressure is essential. Have someone with a fuel pressure gauge check that first. Replace the fuel filter just for nthe fun of it.

Most likely the fuel pump. Or your injectors need replaced.

My car was running great, i killed the car ran inside and back out about 10min later and it would not start! Replased the fule pump, still will not start. 2008 mustang gt


Is the fuel pump getting voltage and ground ?
Are you getting spark at the plugs ?
Could be a crank sensor or relay among other things.

After changing out the radiator the fan comes on all the time and the fuel pump isn't working, I tryed a new brain box but that didnt fix it. any help ?


It is not the PCM. The fan on all the time says you may be in failure mode, with fixed values by the PCM. You disconnected something electrical during the radiator swap out. The fule pump should come on for 5 seconds when you turn key to ON, and humm. Then turn off.

The power relay should turn on the PCM, which in turn, turns on the fuel pump relay to acitvate the fuel pump. Check the power relay first.

I think this relay is under the hood in the relay box. See owner manual.

My car want get any fule iput a new fule pump still no fule istraight wired it and got fule but no fire is there a sensor that would cause it to loose power to the fulepump and cause it not to get fire


Check out your fuel pump main relay and fuse. Often the relay that controls the main fuel pump is also the one the supplies voltage to the coils.

Fuel system


I would check fule pump relay... Doe u hear the fuel pump runnning briefly when u turn the key on at first?

relays are a common thing to replace.. That woudl be first thing i would check. next step if thats not it is to see if the fule cut off switch has been triggered by hititng hard bumb or accident.. that usually cutts pup off all together so it wont even try to start

1992 chevrolet lumina that cuts off sometimes won't start acts like it has trash in the line. It has new fuel filter, tune up, core pads, plugs and wires.


I hade the same problem, but I figured it out, My car is a 1992 chevey lumina Base modle sadan, v6/3.1L This car is electricly based, regardless of your problem replace all Fuses and Relays your fule injection, heater cor, every thing. trust me.

MY CAR PROBLEM: car would stutter and want to die every time I came to a stop, or slowed down. When I start the car it would idle really high, when I shift in to drive it would go back to normal, for a little bit. I checked my electrical center located on passenger side under the hood. I found that my fule pump relay had blown out. this is the main reason for fule pump going out. theas fuses are the real thing that makes this car run. replace them all. thay are like 20.00 dollars a pop but it will save you hundreds.

SECOND: bought a bottle of fule injection cleaner. spray this into your throttle body, connected to the air filter. lots of gunk. after that car stopped stuttering and has not died yet. I did my maintance on 7/15/08

good place to start. good luck
