If your electric connections are good, you probably need to replace the pump. The selenoid is integrated in your unit so this should get you up and running. Good Luck. I hope you find this very helpful!

Car won't start. Ran out of gas. Added gas. Still no start. Checked fuel line to distributor rail...no gas. How to resolve...?


Possible fuel pump failure. Gasoline is used to cool and lubricate the in tank fuel pump. Running a vehicle out of fuel is not good for the pump. Try banging on the tank with your fist while someone cranks the vehicle over. If the vehicle starts or tries to start, suspect a fuel pump problem

Hi I have a 99 c180 and was running fine yesterday , but I went out to start this morning and it just keeps winding over and wont start , , doesnt even cough , just winds over I cant find any eng fus


Sounds like fuel pump not working,have someone crank it for you,take off gas cap and listen . Can you hear pump while cranking? If not bang on bottom of fuel tank while cranking, if it starts you will need a fuel pump if not best check pressure and power to pump

Ran fine last night drove round trip prob 75 miles no prob parked tried to start in morming keepd cranking wont start less than 1/4 tqnk off gas banged on gas tank while cranking still wont start any...


One way to check the fuel pump is to turn the ignition to on and listen for the pump to run. It should run for a few seconds. It may be a couple of seconds after you turn the ignition to on before it runs. Normally you can do this repeated times.

If you don't hear the pump run that is most probably the problem.

Have a 2004 Pontiac Grand AM. It wants to start but does not. After spraying starter fliud in the filter it starts and stays running till it gets cold again.


perform a fuel pressure test. if its between 40 and 50 psi you should be fine. if not replace the fuel filter then the pump. replace the coolant temp sensor if the fuel pressure is good. happy holidays

Ran out of gas wont start now


if its petrol engine bang bottom of fuel tank while some one else cranks vehicle over if it starts good just pump jammed if it dont buzz to life and you cant hear fuel pump buzzing ceck for power to it if thats there replace pump. running out of fuel kills electric fuel pumps internally in petrol tanks.

if its diesel you must bleed fuel system taking extreme care if you un do lines some very high pressure
