It may be a bad ignition module, it cost about $45.00 at Auto Zone and takes less then 30 min to replace with common tools. Good luck and hope this helps.

2003 escape 2.0l no start. Will run with starter fluid. No power at fuel pump.

There are two relays you need to check out, also, check the fuses. Fords also, usually, have an inertia switch you can check. Your owners manual should give you the location.

Mercury sable 1999 while driving stopped at light engine shut down an will just turn over not restart

The first thing you must do is check for fuel delivery, you may have run out of gas even if the gage says there is fuel in it.

02 intrepid anti-theft is going off on the dash

Check the owners manual for how to disarm the security system. They are designed to shut off the starter and fuel pump when the security system has been triggered to prevent theft.

Motor shuts off when started up,shuts off when driving.

hot engine or cold, or both? 180F+ is hot.
Shuts off, idling or on the fly, say at 30mph right foot down it dies?
just clue here...
engine stalls. is complex. but in the macro its below, using tools finds the reason,, but you never said did it restart easy./??????
1: lost of engine compression hot engine, (or overheated)
2: lost 12vdc electric power at stall (caused it) dash goes dead. ?
3: lost spark, test spark at the failure point. if dead trouble shoot speak.
4 bad fueling, too lean (say the fuel pump dies) or too rich.
too rich causes wet spark plug tips. (lots of causes )
5: stalls due to idle RPM too low, below 800 is too low.
too low idle rpm is caused by many things, but top 2 are.
A: EGR stuck wide open, clean it, as the books shows at 60k miles
B: ISC stuck closed. (same deal clean it)

now repost and say when it stalled,
at a read light or flying up a hill wot, wot= wide open throttle.
and when it dies, is the restart easy or hard.

Starter turns but does not start

what year car, what model and sub model and what engine.
lots of honda's from 1969(70'market) which one.?

no start, can be one of 3 basic things (generic answer ASE)
lost electric power to fuel or spark systems (Blown fuse?)
1: lost of compression 1 more more cylinders
2: lost spark 1 or more spark plugs.
3: bad fueling , too lean or too rich.

if you have spark times number of cylinders
then try test fuel, if test fuel runs car for 3 seconds.
then jump on why the fueling is dead.

Engine started and died. Will not restart. Seems to be electrical issue - what fuses or relays should be checked? Thanks.

Does it run if you put gas into the throttle body? If so, then it may be a fuel pump going bad, or the circuit to the fuel pump is dead.

Test for power at the fuel pump, then, when ignition key is on.

Test for pressure of fuel using a gauge at the fuel rail.
Basic Fuel System Diagnosis Two of the most import diagnostic checks, when dealing with a driveability problem involve the ignition and the fuel systems. The questions most technicians attempt to answer first are "is there spark?'' and "is there fuel?'' This often leads to solving most basic problems. For ignition system diagnostic testing, please refer to the information on engine electrical components and ignition systems found earlier in this manual. If the ignition system checks out (there is spark), then you must determine if the fuel system is operating properly (is there fuel?).

The fuel pump relay under the hood in the fuse box is located in the middle.

Car lost power, shut it off. It wouldn't start.

The fuel pump is inside the tank.. Do this first.... with the ignition key set to the ON position listen for the fuel pump to run for 5 seconds.. That will tell you if its working..If no either the pump is faulty or the oil pressure sending switch on the engine is. The Oil switch is linked to prime the fuel pump once you start the car. If not heard test the lead wire from that switch leading to the pump. If that hasno voltage showing replace it

Fuel pump shut switch location

Chevrolets are not equipt with a fuel shut off switch, only fords. U need to find out if there is power and ground at the fuel pump. Start be listening for a buzz noise from tank when key is cycled on and off. Wires do not run under car so probably not problem. Most likey just a bad fuel pump that was just "jarred" too hard from impact. By year of car, 1996, should be due if not yet done

Changed fuel pump still no fuel

either it is a bad fuel pump or the fuel filter is plugged or a bad fuel pump relay or check owners manuel for a gas tank safety shut off switch and if there is one make sure it is reset
