The best way to fine this out is to undo the fule pipe to the card and put a pipe over it so you wont spill any fule into the engine bay put the end of the other pipe into a can and crank the motor over a fuw times you should have fule in the can from the card pipe,, you will soon find out if its pumping fule

Hi:
You can do some basic tests to check for fuel. A simple one is to take off the gas cap, and have someone listen for the pump to run for a few seconds when the key is turned on. you can also remove your fuel filter or check for fuel pressure with a fuel pressure guage too. Often you can get a guage loaned to you from the auto parts store, for just a deposit.

Tried to start 1999 kia sepha but I think it ran out of gas/ put 1 gallon gas in but it wont start


Could be the fuel pump. Can you hear it run when you turn the key on? If not sure, pull the gas cap and listen there. If you don't hear it. Hit the bottom of the tank about where the fuel pump would be. If it starts then, replace the fuel pump. Running out of gas will kill old fuel pumps. Check the plugs for spark. No spark, read the codes. Could be coil/s or crank sensor.

Replaced the fuel pump and filter on a 2001 pontiac grand am se. car wont start is there anything else or filter keeping the gas from going to the engine?


dont know if I can help but make sure the fuel pump comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition on if not check the relay under the hood you may need someone to help with this there are 4 terminals when you pull the relay out one will have power all the time with the key on another one will have power for a few seconds when you first turn the ignition on if you have power there and the fuel pump dosent run at all the relay may be bad you can also check the connection by the fuel tank for power when you turn the ignition on also I just put a fuel pump in my sons 2000 grand am and it did not start after I put the pump in but I could hear the pump running but we had only put a couple of gallons of gas in so I put another 3 gallons of gas in and it started I also just put a pump in my daughters 2001 grand am and it started right away but I had put 5 gallons of gas in right away You can also see if there is fuel pressure at the fuel rail on the right side or passenger side of the engine there is a connection to check fuel pressure you can take the cap off and use a screwdriver to push the valvestem in to see if there is fuel there and any pressure. if you have power to the fuel pump and plenty of gas and the pump wont run try hitting the bottom of the fuel tank under the fuel pump with a ribber hammer

first is the fuel pump running first take the fuel cap off then have someone turn the key all the way on the pump should run for 5-7 second then turn off if you hear the pump turn on and off check your fuel filter which is in front of the fuel tank on the drivers side.

I put $20.00 worth of gas in the car and it went to1/2 and i drove 20 miles and the gas hands is on E i have a problem. There is no gas lick that i know of.


I would put a couple gallons in a can and put in my trunk i know that, If there is no apparent visual leak, no puddle under car.then maybe its a bad fuel read. I would drive car and see how far you can go on that E read. After you get that gas can with a couple gallons in it,and dont forget the funnel. THat car should get at least 120 mi on 6.5 gallons, so its a good size leak to pump out 5 gallons in a 20 mi stretch. i think you would smell it. so hopefully its just one of those weird moments.

most likely a bad fuel pump, do you hear it hum when the key is on? fuel pump has to pump 180 pounds of pressure to operatethe motor, some pumps do come on but don't pump enough pressure for car to run.if ou have spark but no run, it's a fuel issue. you wre right o replace the inline filter, that's where i would've started.i suggest you replace that fuel pump. if you disconnect the fuel line at filter@ turn the key on, the gas should shoot out about 20 feet. hop this helps!!

Car died on road engine turn over but will not start


Try spraying starting fluid into the air intake, with the help of someone else starting the car. As they crank over the car, spray the starting fluid into the air intake. Do this for at least 15 seconds. If the car tries to start up the fuel pump has probably gone bad. When turning the key to the on position do you hear the fuel pump humming? If the pump is not humming the fuel pump is probably bad.

In a quiet environment sit in the car and turn the key on you should hear a quiet motor noise coming from the gas tank, if you have doubts have an assistant turn the key on while you bend down and listen near the gas tank you should hear the fuel pump turn on then stop shortly after the key is turned, don't try starting vehicle, if you do not hear this sound the pump in the tank has failed or the fuse blew, locate and check the fuse if it blew chances are the pump is in fact seized. It is not an easy job the fuel tank must be remove to access and replace the pump. There is a chance that the fuel pump relay is bad locate and check fuse and relay first before dropping the tank.
