Why does fuel pump start, then stop a second later?


You do not say what vehicle you have but a possibility is that the computer is not getting a signal that the engine is cranking over and when that happens it will shut the fuel pump off in a few seconds. It does the same if you just turn on the ignition and do not try to start the car. The pumps runs for a few seconds and is then shut down by the computer because there is no engine crank input..

My 96 yukon wil not start. Sounds like it will crank over but won't. It is not the fuel. I changed the ignition coil still won't start.


try spraying some carb cleaner into a vaccum hose and see if it will run. If so then you have ignition but no fuel delivery. If not then you have an ignition problem. make sure you hear the fuel pump hum when you turn the key to the run position. It should run for +/- 5 seconds then shut off. remove gas cap and listen for fuel pump operation through the fill hole. If you can hear the pump then you have a fuel injection issue. If the engine starts and runs for a few seconds then shuts off then you can suspect the crank or cam position sensor. The fuel pump runs through the oil pressure switch which could also be an issue.

Are you able to start the truck with application of the gas pedal?

I ran out of gas then i put gas in the car .now it want start .1996 camaro v6 3800 rs


You may have to "cycle" the ignition switch a few times to get fuel up to the fuel rails. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position (do not start yet). Listen to see if you can hear the fuel pump running. If you can hear it, turn the key of and wait about 15 seconds and turn the key to the RUN position again. Repeat this step one more time, the turn the ignition to START.

If you cannot hear the fuel pump running when you turn the key on, then you most likely lost your fuel pump when you ran out of gas. This is pretty common - especially if the fuel pump has a lot of miles on it. If this is the case, then you will have to replace your fuel pump.

Wants to start but wont turn on,turns on with starting fluid but shuts of quick delgadocruzjr@gmail.com


not getting any fuel. check fuel pump relay and fuses. if ok check fuel pump and filter. the best way to check fuel pump is to get under car and have someone turn ignition to on, do not try to start. and feel for a vibration by putting hand on tank. you may have to do this a few times, because the pump only runs a few seconds to bring fuel pressure to engine. when running pump is on all the time.

I have a 1996 Oldsmobile cutlass ceira that has run great until yesterday. We was driving through a parking lot trying to find a place to park when the car gave a **** and died. It will not start back up...


Listen at the fuel filler with the cap off having someone turn the ignition on without starting the engine. The pump should run for a few seconds. If you hear nothing, check the fuel pump fuse, and relay. If they are good the fuel pump has failed and needs replacing. If you hear the pump the fuel filter may be clogged or the pump may be running but not pumping any fuel. A fuel pressure test will verify the pumps status.

Is there a fuel pump relay and where is it at if so think the fuel pump is bad will turn over but not fire


The fuel pump relay is located behind the glove box. First you need to see if the fuel pump is actually running. Open the fuel filler door and remove the fuel cap. Have someone turn on the ignition key without trying to start the engine. Put your ear close the the filler neck and listen carefully. You should hear the fuel pump hum for a few seconds and then shut off. If not then check the fuse first. If it is good check the relay. If both are good then the pump needs replacing.

Turned of car, will not start it turns over, but doesn't seem to be getting any fuel


Try A SMALL SHOT Of Starting Fluid Sprayed into the Snorkel
Intake @ Air filter. If it Starts and Does NOT Run After Burning Starting Fluid the Fuel Pump Has Failed. (My Personal Hunch) is (FUEL PUMP FAILURE) BE SURE TO ELIMINATE THE INERCIA SWITCH< it is a fuel shut off switch >>>>> WARNING: Do not reset the inertia switch button if you see or smell fuel.

  1. Turn ignition switch to OFF.
  2. Check for leaking fuel in the engine compartment, fuel lines and fuel tank.
  3. If no fuel is apparent, reset the inertia fuel shutoff switch by pushing the reset button on top of switch.
  4. Turn ignition switch to START for a few seconds, then to OFF.
  5. Again, check for leaking fuel.
LOCATION


  1. Open luggage compartment door.
  2. Remove two screws retaining inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  3. Disconnect wiring harness connector from inertia fuel shutoff switch and remove inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  4. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Does a fuel pump continue to pump fuel with ignition on when the fuel line is diconected from fuel filter The car wont start no codes found it has done this a few times this year it runs fine when running...


you have a bad fuel pump it's in the tank and only comes on in these conditions.
1. ignition switch turned to the run position turns on for two seconds.
2. same as above but when engine starts pump continues to run as long as engine runs. and the safety switch for blow out prevention has not been tripped.

Your problem is the fuel pump and fuel sock and the check valve in the pump. only one way to be sure and that's pressure testing. You hook up gage to fuel rail turn the ignition key to the run position look at pressure should read 40 to 50 psi and should hold for 1 minute, if you drop 5 pounds in one minute pump is bad and even if it started they could verify that the check valve is not holding pressure.
This is caused by the life of the pump by using gas with ethonal in it and your car was not designed for it, so it damages the pump and injectors and destroys the filter in the pump.

1996 cheve lumina . gas pump, when I turn the key


When the key is turned to ignition there is a "Prime" mode that the computer rnus. the pump will only run for a few short seconds. If you crank the engine you should get power to fuel pump the entire time you crank the engine.
