If no (codes) check engine light most likely fuel filter or fuel pump they usually dont set off code check connections and listen for fuel pump by tank if cuts out while idling most likely going bad

If it's running for a few minutes, it is likely the filter. If it's a few seconds, it will be the MAF. Mass air flow sensor.

Signs of a clogged fuel filter


Usually a clogged fuel filter will prevent the engine from revving over a certain RPM, say 1500 or 2000. A weak fuel pump or pump relay could cause it to stop running and then restart.
But the fuel system would not affect engine compression.

Ford based RV - 460 cc - possible fuel issues?


I'm not familiar with the vehicle (I write from the UK..) but yes sir, I would agree with you that it does sound like hot engine/fuel issues. Or maybe a 'cold start' injector, assuming it is a petrol engine.

I also agree that you don't throw money at it.

Personally, I would change the fuel filter (and air filter) anyway, it's the easiest and cheapest option.

You don't mention any problems when the vehicle is running, so I presume that when it is actually travelling, all is fine? If you had intermittent problems with the fuel pump I would have imagined that your vehicle would stall and splutter from time to time. Plus, at the low mileage you have done - a fuel pump shouldn't be failing or have problems.

I would change the fuel filter (and air filter if necessary) and also pour a can of 'injector cleaner' into the fuel tank as a 'lazy' or gummed-up injector(s) can cause starting problems - and take the vehicle for a nice fast run to 'try and clear things'.

Do the simple things first. The things YOU can do. With low mileage vehicles a 'glaze' can build up in the fuel system simply because the vehicle is low mileage /short runs. This causes injectors to become 'clogged and sticky'. Run it with additives in the fuel system ...

If all else fails, ask a workshop. But .. it sounds as though your vehicle is reliable apart from the starting-niggle. I don't think you have a big problem.

Using excessive fuel cleaner can damage injectors and the fuel pump - sounds like your problem is the fuel pump bearings, and you will probably have to have it replaced.

1997 subaru Impreza sport won't stay running . stalls after minute replaced Fuel pump,filter spark plugs wires ,cleaned injectors checked fuel pressure what next


check your grounds. I find many easy fixes by cleaning all the grounds around the engine bay. I would also check the ground at the fuel pump connector that wiring is prone to corrosion and breakage

I have a Nissan XTrail that has the above engine. it has recently developed a problem of stalling on the road and it refuses to start. the idling is very erratic. What could be the problem?


Check the fuelcap first for clogged breather holes. The tank could be sucked vacuum while driving. Problem gets worse when fuel tank is full.

Second is to check the ignition system - loose/damaged lines, sparkplugs blacked out etc (assuming its not a diesel engine). Might run on less cylinders because of irregular firing. Exhaust might smell like fuel.

Third check fuel filter - might be clogged and might need replacement. If it's been changed recently, make sure there's no airpocket in the filter housing. Bleed the filter housing properly to get rid of air pockets.

1994 chevy pick up c1500 stalled out while I was driving


This stalling is fuel related issue.When the fuel flow becomes low, the engine ask for fuel.But fuel pump does not send required fuel and engine stalls.In some cases, it stall then dies after stalling for few minutes.In some cases, if stalls for few seconds or minutes, then again get required fuel , as you accelerate more and engine starts/runs normally.But once this problem is started and it repeats again n again.This is indication f low fuel pressure.Get the fuel pressure checked and replace fuel pump and fuel filter.-----------

2001 mitsubishi galant stops running after ten Minutes


This is either loss of spark or fuel.

Try running the car with the gas filler cap loose. This may induce a Check Engine Light which you can ignore, but will test if the fuel system is cavitating. If the problem goes away, then there's a problem with the evaporative return system, or a clogged fuel filter. Since its a 2001 it's unlikely to be a fuel pump. Don't be persuaded that this is the problem unless there is definitive evidence, such as low fuel pressure.

If the engine starts again immediately after the stall or after a few minutes, the problem is likely to be (one of) the ignition coil or ign power transistor.
