You sure threw a buncha parts at that thing! are you sure it is a fuel problem? this could potentially be a spark problem. you have to figure out the conditions immediately before and during the stall. you should check what your fuel pressure is at the fuel rail using a gauge just in case the new fuel pump is no good (once in a great while this does happen). if the pressure remains around 40 psi while the fuel pump is running then the new pump is ok, but if you see the pressure fall and then it stalls then you've probably got a bad pump (or relay?). you should also hook up a spark tester and make sure it is still sparking as it is stalling...if it is then it is not a spark problem. if it quits sparking immediately before it stalls then you have a spark problem and further diagnosis is probably best left to a dealer or shop that has an enhanced scan tool to monitor all of the ECM inputs in realtime

Who is we? Now I am going to guess you never tested before you changed one part. If your doing this in your driveway it may be time to save your money and go to a repair shop. I will bet you would have spent one third as much and been happy motoring now.

have you had the fuel pressure read from the pump ? i'd have the OBD codes read as will tell you which sensor/switch is at fault , that was bad luck if the pump did fail , i think it's more likely a sensor/switch issue , keep me posted if you wish

2000 chevy silverado v6 vortec engine, died driving, changed fuel pump, plugs wires, etc. and still wont start. ever heard of that


1st, check to see if the fuel pump runs for 3 seconds when you turn the key to run (not start). If it doesn't run, then check the fuel pump fuse & relay in fuse box under hood, if OK, (spray starting fluid in the intake to see if engine fires at all), if no fire then look towards the ignition as the problem. There are 5 things need to start an engine: 1. fuel (delivered & pressure), 2. air, 3. spark (distributor/ignition module or pickup coil), 4. rotation & timing, 5. compression. any of these that are wrong or not there, the engine fails.

2001 chevy malibu wont start after the car runs out of gas and we put more gas


It may take 3-4 times cranking for a few seconds,
with a 5 second pause between to get fuel up to the engine. Also may have sucked up
some dirt/debris into the fuel pump after running it dry. May want to change fuel filter.
you can try to have someone bang on the bottom of the tank while someone else
cranks engine. Sometimes this will free up a stuck fuel pump. good-day!!

i think you might be right it sounds like your engine is getting over fed fuel you are probably not getting very good fuel mileage either the 3.8 and 5.0 would defintely require the same volume of fuel it is probably playing havoc on the pressure regulators i would get another fuel pump and start there

Mazda rx8 flooded .brakedown come tried to start engine turned over !then starter got hot ,now dosnt turn over just clicks? any wdvice please


Your problem is common in the RX-8. It occurs when you start a cold engine and shut it off before it reaches normal operating temperature. If your car does flood, you can first try depressing the accelerator completely and holding it (which shuts off the fuel pump) and then crank the motor for about 10 seconds (not longer or you may damage your starter). If this procedure above does not work, here is the technique a Mazda dealership will normally use (to be performed at your own risk): 1. Use jumper cables to connect to another car battery. 2. Unplug Air pump connector (the black circular motor housing to the left of the oil filler cap) 3. Take fuel pump fuse out (number 22, a 20 amp, 3 from the top of the second column of the fuse box 4. Crank for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, repeat for about a minute 5. Leave for a minute 6. Crank for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, repeat for about a minute 7. Put fuel pump fuse back in 8. Crank for up to 10 seconds, if it catches but doesn?t start, stop cranking 9. If not started go back to step 3 10. If started, wait 30 seconds for oil pressure to rise 11. Stand on throttle until white smoke stops coming out of the exhaust 12. Disconnect jump leads 13. Leave to warm up on idle for a few minutes 14. Put air pump connector back on (see note 3) 15. Go for a nice long drive to recharge the battery

You mention no check engine light, and all the work you've done leave one solution; Your catalytic converter is clogged.

When you replace you catalytic converter your issues will cease. This is a very common problem, and a simple fix.

I hope this information helps and I wish you luck with your repair.
