Fuel filter change did not take care of the problem car still shuts down after 20 minutes of running will not start again for about 20 minutes anyone know what the next move maybe


Have a pressure check run on your fuel pump. Sounds like fuel pump is ready to totally fail. Just had this happen on my ford expedition. And that was painful changing out fuel pump. Took 4 hours and was a dirty job too

I have a 1993 mazda b2600i. The fuel pump randomly shuts off. Repaced fuel pump shut off relay lines cleaned tank. Once it shuts off cant even get it turn on when bypassing fuel cutoff relay.


There is a chance that your pump itself is going bad. Just like a starter that is on its way out. if you tap on it sometimes the brushes will make contact enough for it to go ahead and start, a fuel pump motor has brushes and an armature. Sometimes they will not make contact and work, then other times they can run fine for a bit.

3 fuel pumps in 2 years! Sometimes you can hear the fuel pump priming, sometimes not. Runs good when it starts, shut it off and it might not start. All work done by cert. mechanics. What's the deal


A half blocked fuel filter, will do in a pump in no time flat. as well as a external filter there is a sock type filter on the pump in take ,(in tank pump only). Check the fuel rail pressure regulator if this is high it will over work the pump.

Car keeps shutting off while driving. We have changed fuel filter twice worked good for a couple of days and then started again. Any ideas what could be causing this?


Fuel filter is the best place to start but sometimes the fuel pump can cut out intermittently as well and it is also possible that your injectors are gummed up. Perhaps a higher grade of fuel might make a difference or fuel injector cleaner once a month when you fill your tank might help if it is an injector issue.
I am not certain how to tell if the fuel pump is intermittently cutting out other than eliminating other reasonable possibilities. I had that happen to me and like you I changed the fuel filter and ran injector cleaner through my tank and still had the problem. I dropped the tank and replaced the pump and it ran great afterward.

Trying to find out where the fuel shut off sensor is located on a 2001 Dodge stratus. It will run for 10 minutes then stall and wont restart for a while and repeats


The auto stutdown relay will turn the fuel pump and fuel injection system off. This relay is marked in the underhood fuse relay panel. The senser that it may be shutting down for may be the coolant temperture senser. There might not be anything wrong with the senser as the therostate could be stuck and the cars overheating ( at the senser). There's an air charge temperture senser too and itr's screwed into the air cleaner housing or hose and if it gets too hot, or reports faulsely that it's too hot it'll shut down. But let's say that it's not too hot and the coolant is full and the cooling system is working right ( the readitor fan comes on when it's hot and shuts off as the fan brings the temperture down low enough that the fan is'nt needed. ) Their are parts in the ingtion that'll do this too. the coil. the computer, the distrubuter pickup and the crank and cam sensers. These things if they drop out won't nessarily turn the check engine light on but, will show on a licve time scanner as not putting a singnal out as they arn't working. The fuel pump can overheat as if the fuel filter may be partly clogged andf the pump is trying too hard to make pressure and the pump finally gets hot enough to stop. If the check engine light is on with the engine running it's likly that the codes stored in the computer will give a good ides as to why it's shutting down.

Dont know whether its the fuel pump or something else


How did you determine its not the fuel pump?It could be the fuel filter but I dont think so.Your truck requires a certain amount of fuel pressure to start and a different amount to run properly.You would have to check what your fuel pressure is to say its not the pump.It should be something like 65 psi to start and 55psi to run.Even though you can hear the pump come on when turn the key it might not be putting out enough pressure to start the truck.I realize im a little late with this post but it might helpfull to others.

Fuel pump not staying on 1993 k1500 350


Some GM products also incorporate the oil sender switch into that circuit for fuel pump, so that in case of an accident, engine shuts off, oil pressure drops, in turn, shuts off power to fuel pump. May be worth a look at what your getting for oil pressure, as well as checking switch/sender.

Try replacing the fuel and air filters, if it still doesn't work test your starter to make sure is working properly. if the problem persists, the fuel injector pump on the engine might need to be replaced

2.2 shuts off and fuel pump will not turn on


sounds like the "run" fuel pump relay is going bad. This truck should have two different fuel pump relays on it. One for the start cycle and one for run. They should be in the fuse block under the hood. I don't know which one it is though but you should be able to tell by feeling them while someone else cycles your keys on and off. Note that if the fuel pump has already pressurized the fuel line it may not kick on when you turn the key.
