Stand outside your van,reach in the window and turn your key over,but not to the start position. you should hear a whirring sound from the rear of the van and it should last about 2-3 sec. this will be your fuel pump powering up. if you dont hear it,then you have a bad fuel pump. Dodge Caravans from 96-01 are VERY bad about eating fuel pumps. if the pump is fine,have someone try to start it while you look under hood and see if injectors are spraying fuel. if the pump is good,and you have no spray from the injector,then you have a clogged fuel filter which will need replaced.

Car will run for about 20-30 minutes and shuts off. But will start again...?


have the fuel pressure checked to ensure that it's consistent. If you have a cel light on check for those codes as well. also check for a vacuum leak and check for a stuck egr valve.

Could it be my fuel filter or fuel pump?


Paula,it sounds like the fuel pump which I think is in the fuel tank.Fairly pricey($500-$600)to replace and repair.

My car won't start. everything comes on lights, radio, but it won't turn over. it goes tink tink tink under the hood when trying to start it.


check windowshied wiper motors after you turn on head lights and everything else...if window wipers dont work then its the battery going dead. try trickle charging the battery! make sure battery is not more than three years old, if it is, don't waste your time, its due for replacement anyway. if everything works then it could be wiring from the ignition key system or its been security locked out...that means the car thinks its been stolen and shuts the fuel system off. you can try to dissconnect the battery for about 15 minites then hook it back up to see if will start again.

Ok, im a newly owner of a 1981 Fiat spider 2000. I know nothing about them other than i really like them. I went to pick it up yesterday and it would not start unless i used starter fluid. I went back...


There is also the fuel pressure regulator, that regulates the fuel pressure. So it might not be the fuel pump. And there is also the fuel pump relay switch that may be faulty. So if i was u, id check there also. Hope this helps u :)
