97 ford ranger 4cyl starts and immediately dies. Has some fuel pressure, but haven't put a pressure gauge on it


If it dies immediately when you remove the starting fluid the issue has to be with fuel delivery.

Can fuel sending connection be accessed thru trunk on 1997 buick lesabre custom


On some vehicles the FUEL PUMP can be accessed from under the rear seat without lower the gas tank. It would help to have more information about what your dealing with. I had trouble with my 1999 buick century, it wouldnt start. it ended up being a fuel delivery issue the shop i took the car to said i need a new fuel pump and sending lines, however i couldnt rationalize spending the money they were asking. I ended up fixing the fuel pump myself without spending any money. I got my infiormation from http://autoabsolute.ca they have an expert help section, i explained my problem and they sent me a detailed tutorial with a video that made fixing my car a breeze.

Engine cranks fine, but will only run 5-6 sec then dies. If you press the gas, it sputters and dies immediately.


Seems like a fuel delivery problem.
May be a bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter or a fuel line problem.

What car make/model? What engine?

When it dies, try to turn ignition off immediately, wait a couple of seconds and turn the key quickly to the crank position (don't wait with the key in ignition-on position so that the fuel pump doesn't try to pump fuel into the fuel lines).
If it hesitates to start or runs significantly shorter before dying, you have pinpointed a problem with the fuel system.

Pls let me know what you find out.

You have a Fuel Delivery Pump & a second Fuel Transfer Pump
in the fuel tank
The tank is large & under the car ,under the rear seat
Have to remove the exhaust system & drive shaft

The Fuel Pump Relay --is in the Battery Junction Box (BJB) as well
as the Fuel Pump Motor Diode

There also is a (REM) Rear Electronic Module
I recall that has a variable speed pump regulator
or whatever

There are even more players there as well

Very complicated system ,that you have no way to even
start on yourself
Doubtful even a repair shop could do much

I have a 2004 LS and all the Factory Manuals & Wiring
Diagrams. Without them your done

Check fuel pressure at rail on engine Should be about 42 lbs

Turns over but wont start


Sounds like your fuel pump is going out. The easiest check is to pull out the rear seat cushion and remove the fuel pump access cover in the metal body under the seat cushion. Once you get the car started, drive it around someplace where you won't mind breaking down at. You will hear the high pitched wine of the fuel pump the whole time, what you will be listening for is when the car dies does the fuel pump stop as well. If it does, that means that is why the car died, because the fuel pump shut off. If you replace the fuel pump... wear safety glasses, disconnect the car battery, and have a repair manual w/ you at all times for reference.

I would say that you are on the right track , I think that maybe when the work was done on the fuel pump assy the mechanic may have pinched the power wire and hitting the bumps has caused it to short.you will have to take the seats out again (sorry).You need to look for a damaged wire or evidence of arcing .Hope this helps.

My 1993 Honda prelude has problems starting in the cold weather. We have replaced the relay like suggested by their mechanic but still no luck. We have had to jumper the wires and that is the only reason...


Try to start with a less expensive procedure. In addition to relay I would check the spark plugs, wiring set and distributor cap. Also coolant temperature sensor can be a problem. Try to warm up the endine block of car with dry heat (hair fan or heat gun, but gently). Sometimes it helps. If it works problem is spurk plugs, distributor cap or coolant sensor. Also would be usefull to chek the fuel filter.
But first for cold weather sometimes it worthy to use the injector cleaner/or octane buster and better fuel which evaporates better and less viscouse motor oil. And of course check the battery.
Good Luck
