Hi, Have a 93 2.5 liter deisal Pajero. Pulling out of garage, went three feet and stopped. Motor turns over, but will not start. Using pump on filter can get fuel at the return line


Check and verify the pickup low pressure fuel pump inside the fuel tank is working, it will run anytime the key is in the crank position or the engine is running, should make a low pitched whirring noise, best heard with the fuel fill cap removed and ear down to the fill tube..

Car starts , idles a few seconds, then stalls


Could be a plugged fuel filter; very old gas (car has been sitting unused for some time) has pasted through fuel filter and clogged it. Fuel pump in gas tank is weak and the electric motor in fuel pump runs, gets hot and stops. Have someone listen behind the back bumper away from muffler. The sound of a fuel pump can be heard close to the underside of fuel tank (high pitch whine). If the sound stops before the car dies...that would indicate a faulty fuel pump.

So my fuel pump has been making a high pitched noise for a while. Then one day, without warning, I tried to start the car but it wouldn't. It cranked but would not start. I turned the car on (not start)...


I looked at info for 3.1L vinM Buick regal. fuel pressure key on engine off, 40.5--47 psi. Can you check the vin? The fuel pressure specs I have for 3.8L engine are even higher than the 3.1L.
You will get a fuel pump prime, key on engine off. You need to make sure fuel pump runs with engine cranking.
My hearing is no good, I can't hear fuel pump with engine cranking.
Sometimes If fuel pump brushes are bad, the fuel pump may run intermittently. Sometimes you can bang on bottom of gas tank when trying to start and the fuel pump will take off running.

1998 ford escort fuel pump intermittent


Your description says you hear the pump running but not pumping fuel. I am wondering how you know it isn't pumping fuel?

Clearly it is possible for a pump to run and not pump fuel but that would not be the fault of the pump. That condition would most likely be caused by something in the fuel tank blocking the intake to the fuel pump.

Mostly if the fuel pump is good and heard to be running it can be assumed it is pumping fuel if fuel is there to be pumped. If there is doubt then a proper test should be carried out at the time when it doesn't start. It might be a good idea to check inside the fuel tank for dirt, water, foreign objects...

No fuel in motor. will not start


when you turn the ignition key to the on position you will hear the fuel pump run for 5 seconds.
if not heard replace the oil pressure switch for the third wire on that sensor runs the fuel pump the first 5 seconds to start the engine. once pressure is operating at normal conditions the relay takes over on the pump to run

How to check for a bad fuel pump in a "99" blazer, 4.3 motor? I sprayed starting fluid in air fillter and it would fire but not run.


If gas and starting fluid does not create a spark I believe the coils or ignition module is your problem
To check the fuel pump turn the key to the on position without trying to start the engine. Once turned to to on position the fuel pump will run for 5 secounds to prime fuel pressure to the injectors. If heard running you have a problem above as mentioned

My van acts like it wants to start but it won't.


try a new fuel filter first,then try a new fuel pump.The fuel pump has to have the .right presure to keep the car running.If you havnt changed the fuel filter since the car was new,chances are it is filled with dirt from having too low of gas in your tank,dont let it get below a half if you can help it.
