Could be the pump, the fuse, relay. Also the control module, if you aren't getting any spark. You can try spraying some starting fuild in the throttle body to see if it fires up.

My 1993 buick century stalls when i stop at a light or stop sign after i restart it it backfires multiple time before i can gain speed


I have a feeling your fuel pump is on its way out...but start by changing your fuel filter first, should be under $20....ie..not enough fuel getting through..

MY 2004 RIO STOPPED RUNNING AT A STOP SIGN AND WOULD NOT RESTART.. TURNS OVER BUT DOESN'T START, SOUNDS LIKE IT ISN'T GETTING GAS.


buy some brake clean. spray a little in throttle body. if it starts and stalls you need a fuel pump or you lost power to the fuel pump. If nothing changes you may have a bad crank sensor or ignition issue.

You may have a bad fuel pump sock or you may have a plugged catilatic converter, does the truck take a long time to start after it stalls out?

Continous surging and stalling


Per your description, I would suspect a fuel pump issue. When the fuel pump is running the pump impeller heats up. On an older pump the impeller can begin to seize up and momentarily stops and starts. Some times it just stops and has to cool down for a couple of minutes, then is ok for a while.
To test this theory, when the engine stalls and stops, your mechanic can use a rubber mallet and hit the bottom of the gas tank, this will free the pump impeller and the car will start again.
Or, have him install a fuel pressure gauge and go for a drive. If the pressure begins to fluctuate and drop, you know the pump is causing the issue.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

03 vw jetta tdi just stalled


there should be one in the tank and a boost pump on the back of the cylinder head,you can hear the pump when you turn the key on (normally) also check your crank shaft signal,the low pressure pump should produce between 2.0 to 3.0 bar

My 1991 Toyota Corolla had it's fuel pump replaced 3 months ago.


Yes. may be filter. But first check fuel pressure at injector rail. Should be approx 40 PSI. any lower will cause these symptoms.

Replacing fuel filter should be a given when changing pump, get it changed today.
