How do I fix a 2004 Chevy Malibu wont start


The logical thought on this would be to ask if you changed the filter, also if the pump is electric and in the tank, was the strainer changed? If EFI have you checked fuel flow before and after the fuel pressure regulator? Can you hear the pump running? Did you check the fuse for the fuel pump?
I'd start by making sure the pump has voltage, then disconnect the fuel line before the filter and see if there's any fuel in the line. Then have someone just turn the ignition on momentarily to see of the pump is pumping. If it isn't you still have an issue with the pump. Finally, if you have an in tank pump, and have installed an external line pump to save bucks, this doesn't always work because there are check valves in some internal tank pumps that prevent fuel flow.

Mercury sable 1996 changed fuel filter had brown gas in it did this ruin fuel pump. Can hear pump when trying to start car


Most likely the fuel pump is ok, but there is likely air in the fuel line that you need to bleed off under the hood.

It is possible that the fuel pump went bad, and the way to know is to check the fuel pressure (same place you bleed it under the hood). The fuel pump is in the tank, so it's a real pain to change.

With the ignition key turned on without trying to start the engine you should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds. That is how its primed to start. Upon starting the oil pressure reaches normal operations & the prime switch will cut off by the signal from the computer. Thus the engine still needs fuel to run so the computer switches on the fuel pump relay to provide the fuel to the engine. The prime switch is intergrated with the oil pressure switch. If you do not hear the fuel pump upon having the key on replace the oil pressure sensor

1986 Jaguar XJ6 Won't start. rolls over but that is it. replaced fuel pump relay and fuel pump. seems to have fuel at pump inlet, nothing comes out the outlet. I am lost. car ran out of gas before this...


if your fuel pump and relay are new, how about your fuel filter, if your fuel pump is working but no fuel turns out, check fuel pump polarity, if ok, there will be a clogging in fuel lines, take a high pressure air and plug it to fuel outlet in fuel lines test port, allow air to go back up to fuel tank and observe if the air goes, if not, check or change fuel line, if the air goes to tank, direct your fuel relay pin 30 and 87 and check if the fuel runs to the injectors, if not, change a good fuel pump

When were the glow plugs last changed?

They sit over the cylinder like spark plugs and warm the diesel before it goes into the inlet manifold, greatly assists starting.

Changed feul pump feul filter changed computer. Van still shutdow


this could be a number of problems,check the voltage with a volt meter,not a test light at the fuel pump connection. make sure you have 12V,if so unhook the fuel supply line,turn key to ON not START, and make sure the pump will continue to flow,( obviously cqatch the fuel with a pail,or put a hose on it to pump it into a pail,don't let it leak all over the place.)if the pump continues to flow with out shutting off,your pump,filter,and electrical for your pump is ok.it could be a restriction in the return line,or the regulator may not be functioning.un hook the return line as close to engine as possible,install hose on it and route to a pail to catch fuel,with supply line hooked back up,start van and see if it works,if it keepd shutting off,you've now eliminated return line problems.check the regulator.
