I have a 97 geo metro 4 cyl engine the other day broke down the wrecker driver said sounds like fuel pump is bad. I replaced pump and filter still would not start. getting fire. Last night I started it...

first check fuses. (test them)
then check for spark at all 4 cylinders. good.?
if not timed correctly (spark) with timing light, then the cam belt slipped. (oops not changed at 60k, oops)
if all that is good engine runs on test fuel, does it?
if yes, you lost fuel.
easy huh, watch scotty

So I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer with 190000 miles on it It ran perfect until the car just stalled out on the way home from work the other night It stalled like it would if there was no gas getting to...

I had a new fuel pump put on my Dodge Pickup and a week later it stalled . I checked the injectors to see if they were getting fuel and it shot gas out like it had fuel but the pump they put on was defective it was pumping fuel but not enough to start it .
I would take a spray bottle and gas in it . Unhook your air filter and then squirt fuel into the intake . If it starts for a second you will then no within a shadow of a doubt that the fuel pump is not pumping enough fuel.
Also check to see if your in line fuel filter is clogged . I don't know what part of the country you are in but a cold climate can cause a dirty gas filter to gel and not allow enough fuel to get past.

1995 Ford Explorer ran fine, then after night of -20 F weather, won't start. Have put a new battery in. Didn't help. Could it be the fuel pump?

But you don't know what actually froze, cars are not designed for these temperatures, the ones that are use different oils and even fuel, there is even the possibility that your starter motor is still frozen, I have seen news stories of cars turned into ice sculptures and fountains turned into Ice in Texas, where I live I am happy our day temps are under +35C.

My 1997 Olds Achieva was running fine last night. It has plenty of antifreeze in it however it did get really cold at night. I started it the next morning and it started up and ran really rough like I was...

If oil is leaking on the starter it is a fire hazard. Repair the hose and replace the starter. The age of your car also warrants replacing the fuel pump and the fuel filter. They do not handle age and water well. (Methenol fuel, equals water in the tank, more so in cold weather)

1992 ford ranger will not start

I would check the timing of the engine.
The timing may have skipped .
I would check the fuel pressure. The fuel pump could have took a dump.

Can you hear the fuel pump coming on when you turn the ignition key but do not turn it over to start.
IF you do not hear the fuel pump coming on replace it.

Wont start

Sounds the starter is no good (sometimes they'll work intermittently for a while before they totally **** out). Of course it could just be a starter wiring problem (sending wire).
