I would next check the fuel pressure regulator if the pump was not pumping, or the filter was plugged some of the leftover waste in the lines from one or the other of these issues may have plugged the regulator causing inconsistent fuel pressure that would cause the engine to run rough, or possibley cut out fuel entirely, causing the vehicle to die

2001 explorer sport , fuel pump? vacuum leak? 619 scan tool data provided, any suggestions/solutions


The fuel pump is suspect but I believe there's also a fuel filter inline on the underside of the drivers side chassis. Fuel works off pressure so if the filter is clogged, the pressure remains between the fuel tank and the filter. Once the fuel has siphoned off between the filter and injectors, it dies but because there's positive pressure at the fuel pump, it won't come on until the pressure slowly seeps past the clog after hours. It's worth a look!

Water pump have anything to do with the fuel pump. Car will start run for a few sec then die. If you give it the gas it will stay running let off it dies. It a 98 regal supper charge


No. They are separate. If the idle is too slow try adjusting the idle screw if it is available on that older vehicle. Many things can cause a rough start / idle and an experienced mech will need to look at it. Good Luck.

Check the DIS module or injectors. Check to make sure you have a spark on each cylinder. One cylinder could be misfiring
