Question about 2008 Jeep Compass

1 Answer

Every few moths it will not start. Acts like it is starving for fuel. After it sets a few hrs it will start right up and drive for months with no problems. Dealer cannot find any problems or recreate the issue as it always starts when I bring it to them.

Try turning the key to the on position wait a second or 2 then try to start this will prime the fuel system. U may also be experiencing a throttle sweep test run about every 3k to 6k and will have a start delay this is considered normal.

Check fuel pressure. If weak then either fuel pump or filter need replacing.

1997 contour 4 cyl cranks but wont start acts like fuel starved


If it acts like it's starved for fuel, it probably is related to that. I would check first though. If you have a carb, you can spray starter fluid inside and then crank it. If it tried to start, then it is fuel related. Probably a fuel pump, fuel filter, or fuel relay, or perhaps a fuse. If it doesn't start for a second, it could be many more things. If so, you should check your ignition system, spark plugs, wires, distributor, coils, ect. If your battery and starter are fine, start looking to see if your car is getting fuel. Hope this helps. Being broke down sucks!

Mustang stalls when trying to drive and will shut down


Measure fuel pressure on injector rail - should be 38 to 40 psi. If low or fluctuating, then replace regulator. Another possibility is the in-tank filter being clogged - rare I know, but trash in the gas tank and it's clogged.

Seems like the fuelpump is out....is there something i should check first


is the fuel pump extremely loud? i've dealt with a few of these, and although the driving symptoms differed, a new fuel pump fixed a great majority of them when the pump was whining.
