If fuel pump is running, then check the fuel filter, it may be clogged and not let fuel through. check the fuses also to make sure the injectors are working.

My car wont start up


First of all, the new fuel pump may be bad. disconnect line at fuel filter where it goes through filter. and see if fuel flows, or have someone to put hand flat on bottom of tank and try to start car. if fuel pump is working you will feel a vibration on tank. if it does not work, check the fuel pump fuse in fuse box before you exchange it.and or the fuel pump relay! when car is running it runs constantly, when you simply turn key to on position, it runs for about 3 seconds(until fuel pressure in line comes up. and then cycles off.

2006 chevy malibu wont start unless i hit the gas pedal


it will be a good idea to clean injector. It's a good thinking to clean throttle body......never forget for good combustion you need AIR,good FUEL,and good spark
when you need to crack up the throttle plate to start means throttle body dirty and IAC valve dirty or not working properly
hope it helps

2001 chevy malibu wont start after the car runs out of gas and we put more gas


It may take 3-4 times cranking for a few seconds,
with a 5 second pause between to get fuel up to the engine. Also may have sucked up
some dirt/debris into the fuel pump after running it dry. May want to change fuel filter.
you can try to have someone bang on the bottom of the tank while someone else
cranks engine. Sometimes this will free up a stuck fuel pump. good-day!!

It ran out of gas and now wont start. I put gas directly into throttle body, and it starts/runs, but wont remain started when gas runs out.


Sounds like fuel pump. Your fuel pump relies on fuel to act as coolant. Running it low often makes pump run hot and shortens it's life. Sounds like running out of fuel did just that. Way to test, pull fuel line off in engine compartment and have someone turn key to "ON" (NOT START!!!) position, you should fuel spraying out of line) If not, fuel pump is bad.

My 2005 Chevy Classic Malibu will not start. Conditions are: overfilled at gas station to where gas spewed out. No problems prior to this. Car would not start. Have pressure in the fuel line, can hear...


Sounds like the fuel pump went bad, or a relay for the fuel pump. My guess it's a fuel pump more likely to have gone bad.

Maybe a coincidence that when you overfilled the gas at the gas station that it put the pump 'over the edge' as far as functioning.

I do not see a connection between overfilling and the fuel pump going bad at that instance, but anything is possible.

Is there a fuel switch when you run out of gas


after you put about 2-3 gal. of gas back in tank you should turn key on for about 4-5 seconds then off then try it again to get the gas back in the line.
if it don't start after trying that it could be you burned up the fuel pump in the tank.
when you first try this have someone listen for the pump to run at the tank.
take off the gas cap and listen from there.
when you first turn on the key it should run for a couple seconds.

1997 chevy malibu 3.1 engine starts rough and wont idle only runs with gas pedal being pumped


check the fuel filter to see if it is getting clogged and not letting enough fuel through it. make sure you have proper fuel to throttle body so it will run properly. if this does not help much, check idle air control valve.
