It is not uncommon for a replacement pump to be bad. I repalced a pump in my daughter's car three times before getting one that worked properly. You may have a bad one and need to return it .

2001 ford f150 v8 had problems with intermittent engine shutdown. After letting it sit for half to hour half it would start up. Replaced the fuel and pcm relays, the fuel filter and the fuel pump.


Replaced the fuel and pcm relays, the fuel filter and the fuel pump.????? Your guessing not testing . Did you do fuel pump pressure an flow testing before replacing those parts . How about fuel pump voltage drop testing ?


Testing Electric Fuel Pump Problems with Voltage Drop Test

Besides it doesn't sound like a fuel pump problem ,sounds like electrical problem or electronic problem . What's missing after it shuts down ? Spark or fuel . Testing an not guessing is the key to finding the problem . Hooking up a factory or professional type scan tool to view engine sensor data parameters an checking to factory spes.

Any sensor when hot can cause these type problems .

After replacing a fuel pump in a 2003 Kia Sorento, cannot get pump to work with ignition key. Checked pump prior to installation at battery and it works perfectly. Any suggestions would help. Than


If pump now not working either it is defective or it is not receiving power. Check the wiring for fuses, relays, bad connections, etc. Check schematic to study links between the ignition switch and pump.

Car keeps shutting off while driving. We have changed fuel filter twice worked good for a couple of days and then started again. Any ideas what could be causing this?


Fuel filter is the best place to start but sometimes the fuel pump can cut out intermittently as well and it is also possible that your injectors are gummed up. Perhaps a higher grade of fuel might make a difference or fuel injector cleaner once a month when you fill your tank might help if it is an injector issue.
I am not certain how to tell if the fuel pump is intermittently cutting out other than eliminating other reasonable possibilities. I had that happen to me and like you I changed the fuel filter and ran injector cleaner through my tank and still had the problem. I dropped the tank and replaced the pump and it ran great afterward.
