This sounds like the fuel pump may have quit, the pump is electric and located inside the gas tank, there may be an access plate under the rear seat cushion, most have this plate, if this year doesn't the fuel tank must be pulled.

here is the part number for the original factory style pump

DENSO Part # 9510001
OE Manufacturer $128.00

Why won't car stay running unless I keep pumping the gas pedal


Sounds like a fuel pump issue. Check the pressure from the fuel pump.

Turns over but acts like it's getting no gas


Possibly check valve in fuel pump is allowing the fuel back into the gas tank

Turn ignition key to ON so the dashboard lights are lit for 5 or 10 seconds,
then CRANK the engine.

This will allow the fuel time to get back to the engine. May take several tries.

Known problem, friend was recently told new pump would have to be installed $500+, decided a few extra seconds to start car once in a while was better option.

On way to gas station car stopped, not quite out of gas but almost. push her to station and fill her up. Car still will not start. She acts like she wants to turn over and maybe like she is not getting...


Let her sit for a little while. Then, turn the car to the "run" position, and assuming you have an electronic fuel pump, it will begin to prime itself (Because you probably lost prime when it ran out of fuel). Keep doing this about 5-10 times, leaving it in the "Run" position for 20 seconds. If you have a mechanical fuel pump, however (you will know because turning the key to "on" with the blower motor off makes no noise, unless it's the electronic fan), you will just have to keep cranking, letting the starter cool back down, and repeating until it fires off.

Car has set for a year, but was working fine before it began to sit. Now when I try to start it it wont start. Changed the battery and sprayed starter fluid in the carburetor, it started for a moment then...


This may be a fuel injected engine. On some vechicles when they run out of gas you have to turn the key, but not try to start the car. Give it a few seconds for the gas to feed back through the gas line. Once you turn the key, the fuel pump will start pumping the gas to the engine for the carburator. If that does not work, then give it a little gas, no too much or you could flood the carburator. Try to start the car again.

Toy starts runs 10 seconds and stops change fuel filter now wont


When you tur the key forward do you hear the fuel pump running? You should hear a low hum for about 20 seconds near the gas tank and then it stops. If you hear this your pump is good. If it keeps running or you can't hear it at all it's bad or the main fuel pump fuse is blown.

1999 hard starting expedition, with 5.4 engine


fuel pump may be going. try this. turn key on, listen for fuel pump to run for 5 seconds. Turn key off, wait 15 seconds or until you hear relay click inside car. Turn key on again for 5 seconds and ff for 15 seconds. repeat once more. This will pressurize fuel system to 40 psi so injectors have full pressure. If it starts quickly now, you are getting bleed down through the check valve in the fuel pump or the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail.

check electric fuel pump operation ( located in the fuel tank ). Occasionally a fuel pump will burn out when running out of fuel, due to the fact the pump runs DRY for about 30 seconds till the fuel stops flowing out of the injectors, the engine quits, simultainously losing oil pressure which FINALLY shuts off the fuel pump. Sometimes TOO LATE. Hope this helps
