Changed fuel pump, lr2 2008 wont start even although engine is rolling. It ran down 2 batteries and still wont start


Was it running before changing FP? Have you tested fuel pressure? Have you checked for spark at plugs and injector pulse with a noid light? Remember, brand new parts are sometimes bad too.

My toyota hilux pickup wont stert changed diesal pump and still wont start


Being a diesel, and changing the pump, you de pressurized the system. . Sometimes near the fuel filter they install a pump, or on the side of the motor near the fuel line. . It's like an old coleman stove. There should be a rod to pump the pressure back into the system. You may want to look at that route. If the truck ran after the fuel pump was installed and you let it sit a day and won't start, I would re check the tightness of the bolts and filters. Sounds like you have air in the system. Remember diesels run on pressure. Good luck let me know if this helps you

05 ford five hundred wont turn over thinking its the fuel pump or maybe the relay


try banging on the fuel tank sometimes that could make the fuel pump work for a bit, you cant 100 percent rule out a bad fuel pump;you may have a better idea if it starts. good luck

I have a 97 breeze that sometimes wont start. then a day later it will start right up. Also sometimes it sputters while driving and wants to die but then just keeps on going. Could this be a fuel line...


when it don't start check to see if the car has spark. Also listen to see if you can hear the fuel pump in the gas tank working. Fuel pump should make a buzzing noise when you first turn the key on for a few seconds. If the car has spark but you can't hear the fuel pump the pump is probably your problem. If you can hear the pump and have no spark I would check the crank sensor. If you cant hear the fuel pump be sure to check the fuel pump relay under the hood in the fuse box before changing the fuel pump. Good luck

Hi, my 97 chevy truck has intermittent problems. It runs fine most of the time but sometimes it wont start and the fuel pump wont kick in. But then a few minutes later when I try it, it runs. Sometimes...


You need to have a fuel pressure gauge to check it when it wont run. Take your fuel pump relay and switch it for the horn relay. Is the ground good for the fuel pump, the wire bolts on the frame. these had problems with the connector at the fuel tank, make sure they are in good conditon and dont look like they have been hot or melted.

Truck wont start,acts like its out of gas ,gonna try fuel filter,first ,how do i know if its the fuel pump or some kinda sensor,is this real common with these trucks


check fuses, check for fuel at valve in gas line , check fuel pump relay, you should here it click when key is turned to the on position, if it does, turn key off open gas cap turn key on and listen for whirling sound in tank, if you don,t here click from relay try to bend tabs slightly to make good contact, if it still doesn't click replace, if not could be fuel pump
