Assuming the fuel pump fuse and relay is good, check the crank sensor, crank sensor sense the flywheel turns which send a single to the ecu, ecu send power to the fuel pump as long the flywheel stay turning or spinning.

2001 Pontiac Sunfire ran out of gas now won't start. Tried changing the fuel filter, and cycling the key several times, can hear the fuel pump running. Also could get to start with spraying fuel into air...


The fuel in the fuel tank also cools the pump during operation. The pump could have heated up internally, causing it to fail. I would recommend checking the fuel pressure with a gauge and be sure the fuel system is pressurized and not low. A fuel pump can still run and be heard, but at the same time, it also may not provide enough critical pressure to the fuel rail and injectors.

undo the fuel line where it joins the fuel rail to your injectors.. it is under extreme pressure so be careful.. get someone to crank car for a second or two and if fuel sprays out then its not a fuel problem..

My 2004 Pontiac sunfire wont start the battery is fine but its just not getting gas


When you turn the switch to ON do you hear a sound for a couple of seconds ? you should hear a sound which is made by the fuel pump as soon as you turn the key. If you do not hear anything, you may need to replace the fuel pump. If you do hear the sound of the fuel pump, check your fuel filter .

check electric fuel pump operation ( located in the fuel tank ). Occasionally a fuel pump will burn out when running out of fuel, due to the fact the pump runs DRY for about 30 seconds till the fuel stops flowing out of the injectors, the engine quits, simultainously losing oil pressure which FINALLY shuts off the fuel pump. Sometimes TOO LATE. Hope this helps
