Easy enough to check it out, you should be able to hear the fuel pump kick on when the key is turned, if you can't hear it, it might be the problem, but just to make sure, Squirt a little gas in the throttle and see if it will fire, usually even when the fuel pump goes bad the fuel will get into the injectors enough to fire it. Check it out.

My car turns off while driving ? now it won't start

Let us assume you have not run out of fuel and the fuel gauge is ok.

Normally cars do not stop suddenly if battery is the issue. Could be the alternator but you have installed a new battery. The fuel system seems to be the problem. Could be blocked fuel pump.

Car will not start

Ok you have power at the battery, do you have power to the plugs.
Given the limited information provided about the no start. Start from the basics. Fire, Fuel and air, with fire and fuel being essential for a start. Fuel is sent to the combustion system, air is introduced to atomized the fuel, the spark-plug fires and the atomized mixtures explodes to initiate the starting process.

1996 camry lost speedometer and a/c while driving. Put in new battery and alternator, still no change and now car just lost all power while driving . What is wrong with car?

lost speedometer, what does that mean 0mph at 50? ??????
YES, CHECK all fuses first. all cars, for any electric issues.

A./c lost, (ok there are 6 things that cut A/c some are normal)
one is HVAC dash blower fan must blow or AC brain cuts A.C
this prevent ICE up. (normal)
why guess? please stop guessing and throwing parts and cash.
what does lost all power, driving mean.???
lost engine power (cant drive)
or lost all electric power (a prime reason for EFI to die , for lack of 12vdc electric power)
does lights die on the car, at the moment of problems?
Dash cluster , head lights, any lights.
does engine STALL? (0 RPM is stall) 300 RPM is bad idle.
800 RPM is normal hot idle, never less.

if this is just and engine power issue, (cant drive at all ,or only slow or
slow up hills?)O
my car will not move fast,? in any gear? and transmission don't slip
and no DTC scan codes (checked and smart to do first)

I'd be all over fuel pressure. this is a $20 gauge , that must be connected to the fuel rail to read pressure.
28psi is minimum for all cars.
if i knew what engine was in your car, id look yours up has this info.

the ecu can not report wrong fuel pressure, it cant
so is always and issue, with total engine power loss.
so is skipping 60,000 mile FULL TUNEUP's

if you need those charts they are easy to get. for any car.

tell more get more.... regards

Has power, fule pump is working, won't turn over?

? no engine stated of the many.
cranks, ok? fast and normal???? or weak....and slow, 250rpm is norm.
12vdc good to EFI ,ok (power sure)
spark is next. not fuel. ever. same for carbs to EFI.
check spark if spark is good, try test fuel if test fuel fails it flooded
or the engine has lost compression in 1 or more cylinders 4 to 6 ?
then if test fuel works<<<< we attack fueling. last.
fuel pressure at spec? using a real gauge not sounds. or dribbles.

you using turns over to mean starts and runs? lots of parts turn over.
Running is and end goal and full engine power.

The EFI will not inject fuel if it even suspect spark is bad.
so spark is 2x more important than carbs (logic in the ECU)
this is for fire safety.

my motto:
No engine. (or transmission type A/T or M/T?, if that is in question)
NO HELP (or your joy)

Why did my Audi a6 six speed lose power while driving and continuous battery drain?

Sounds like your alternator might be bad or your engine belt is loose (or broken). If you can get the car started, check voltage at the battery. If you have 12+ volts for at least 20 minutes, your alternator is ok. If you have less, it's bad.

Im looking for help with subaru justy 1992 choke manual. When it drives it seems to pull back like the engine is reversng or trying to warm up. it also back fires whenever you change gear and now it...

Sounds like a carb problem, you can buy carb cleaner from autozone to spray in the jets.
Also once you remove all the non metalic parts once you remove it you can drop the carb in a gallon bucket of cleaner with a basket thqat comes with it. Carb cleaner removes all the gunk from fuel residue clogging the jets and ports. That gunk clogging your fuel system creates an imbalance in how youre combustion chamber recieves fuel air mixture. Cleaning yourself saves alot of money and you learn somethign about your car at the same time hope that helps :D Good luck

My 2003 sunfire wont start its getting fire and gas and it turns but wont start why

Please consider following matters:
1. Ignition. Blue color fire is the the best ignition power 2. Gas. Check your fuel filter and injections 3. Compression. Combustion chambers should have enough compression to start the engine. Does your car lost its compression? Is the car has blue smoke on exhaust muffler ? Do you need top up oil regularly? All these things show your car has problem with compression.

1994 Nissan Sentra LEC problem

There is no carburetor on your car, it is fuel injected. Your coil is what fires the ignition. You can buy a Haynes manual, which has a troubleshooting section in it, but it sounds to me like you aren't really too sure around cars, so i'm going to suggest you find a reputable mechanic to take the car to. It may be a simple problem, but if you aren't comfortable working on cars, the mechanic is the best route. i'm sorry not to be of more help, but problems like this one can be caused by a variety of things only diagnosable while with the car to test as you go.

Driving down the road, car stops working, almost like running out of fuel. "Battery" light comes on. Toe it back home, hook up jumper cables, engine will turn over but won't fire...just turns. Took it to a...

sounds like a fuel problem to me , could also be bad fuel ? have you check the following: fuel cap on properly, fuel filter changed , Check fuse relay. also would be a good idea to change the battery if it is still the original one.
