Why won't car stay running unless I keep pumping the gas pedal


Sounds like a fuel pump issue. Check the pressure from the fuel pump.

Should not need to. Do you hear the fuel pump turn on?

My car won't start when you turn the key the fuel pump doesn't make the noise it does before you start , few people have said its the fuel pump relay , where would i find it and wot does it look...


if you dont hear the pump and you once did,probably pump bad,try starting fluid in air box-tube to mass air,if cranks and shuts of car isnt getting fuel,you can pull line to motor loose to see if gas is getting to motor,check filter for blockage,still no gas more than likely pump bad.

My car just stopped working it seems no gas is gettin to the engine but it used to stall alot not like oh s*** im out of gas but the stall when you press the gas and absolutely nothin happens then the car...


Here's a technique that works for me. Locate the fuel pump relay, in the fuse and relay panel. Pull the fuel pump relay and look at the bottom of the relay. You will see that the cover can be removed by carefully prying it off using a small flat blade screwdriver or an x-acto knife. Once the cover is removed, reinstall the relay. Have someone start the car while you watch the contacts on the relay. If the contacts close, the relay is OK. If you turn the key to on without starting the car, you car close the relay manually. (You can use your finger to close the relay. Listen carefully, at the fill tube with the gas cap removed. If the fuel pump is getting power you will hear the whine of the motor. If not then check the fuel pump fuse first then the 12 volts at the connector on top of the fuel tank. I've had a problem such as you described, where the car will start but stalls if you try to give it gas. I found that some GM's use a small (2 inch)section of rubber hose to connect the pump to the steel fuel line inside the tank. The hose splits which allows enough fuel to reach the engine, but not enough to run it under any load. The fuel filter should be replaced if it is suspect, but probably isn't your main problem. Hope this helps! Dano

Car has been sitting; will turn over but won't start. Used starting fluid and car starts but quits. Won't fire without starting fluid. There is fuel in the tank. Help!!


My first thought is to check the fuel pump operation.
Check to see if fuel pump is getting power.

This is how I check the pump.

Usually there is an in-line fuel filter that can be removed.
While its removed...bump the starter to see if gas shoots out the gas line.
If not, there might be a clog at the pump...or the pump needs replacing.

Hope this helps...

Ran out of gas-truck won't start-replaced fuel


you probably have air in the lines, if you have a carb, spray some quick start into the carb and turn it over, if it starts and then dies when the starting fluid has run out, you probably need a fuel pump, since the running of the car should have blown out any air that was in the line, If your car is fuel injected, loosen the bolt cap at the end of the injector line that supplies the fuel,, and tap the key once,, ( don't start it,, ) just turn the key on and off 3 or 4 times, this should blow fuel out of that loose bolt head, if it does your getting fuel, if not, back to the fuel pump, also you can check this link, http://www.aa1car.com/library/us1296.htm

Installed new fuel pump because car had old gas in tank. removed tank and completly drained it. replaced tank and installed new fuel pump and fuel filter. put about 6 gallons of gas in car. have tried to...


Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

1993 VW Cabriolet Fuel pump or Injector problem?


Hi. This is more of a fuel filter issue than a pump issue although, a bad fuel filter will eventually destroy a fuel pump. When the filter is restricted or clogged, this will tend to work the pump harder than normal. this will over heat the pump, therefore, shortening its life span. I recommend replacing the fuel pump and filter and, adding a fuel additive like techtron fuel injector cleaner/water remover as well.

Please rate and have a great day:)

The engine turns but the car won,t start.


You will need to check for fuel pressure or dirty filter. If you do not have fuel pressure; be sure to check fuses or any relay pertaining to fuel pump (if electric). If fuses and relays are good check or replace fuel filter. If the fuel pump is mechanical disregard fuses & relays and check or replace fuel filter. If this does not resolve the problem then the problem could be the fuel pump if mechanical, If its an electric fuel pump it could be a fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, crimped fuel line or other wiring issue.

These are the most common things I run across, oh, a crimped fuel line can cause the problem in either case electric or mechanical. Hope this helps in some way, been awhile sense I worked with an older car.
