You need to check the fuel pressure, running it should be around 50psi. and after shutting down try to start, fuel pressure should jump to 50 psi within 1-2 seconds. if it has to build up you have fuel bleeding down somewhere. I have run into dirty injectors that are dribling after shut down causing a semi-flooding condition also there is a check valve in the fuel pump which is supposed to hold fuel in the system for the next start.

1992 F350-7.3 4wheel drive is hard to start after changing fuel filter and fuel pump. Why is it hard to start?


indicates fuel leak back and fuel pressure drop
check filter installation for seal not sitting properly, loose fuel line fitting , pump installed correctly (flow wise ), filter installed correctly (flow wise)
air getting in to fuel lines
the thing you are looking for is indicated by the initial hard start but when started runs ok ( good fuel to the engine eventually) and then by the fact that if the engine is allowed to sit for a long period the problem returns meaning that the fuel pressure is not being held
could even be a problem fuel pressure regulator allowing the fuel to bypass ( no pressure =hard starting) then gets enough pressure to run ok but allows that pressure to drain off over time

2000 Cavalier Starts/runs fine for 20 mins. Stalls won't start again till cools


The shop needs to record the computer data on a road test
or look at the freeze frame data, when you go there

The fuel pump wasn't scoped or pressure tested

I think you need a different shop that's up to speed & knows
how to use scan tools & oscilloscopes

If it idles for hours you stop doing that & drive it for 20 miles or more

And you wonder why shops don't find any issues,they don't drive
the cars far or at all or take the test equipment along

Check fuel Pressure at the motor with a gauge
& also fuel volumn

The pump may work still but the check valve
drains off pressure & it is hard to start

Pump is inside the fuel tank which would have to
come down & out as pump goes in from the top
if that is even the problem

MY 1994 5.7 1500 RUNS FOR A LITTLE BIT AND THEN SHUTS OFF,I CHANGED THE FUEL PUMP FUEL FILTER,IGNITION MODULE.IT STARTED RIGHT UP AND RAN FOR ABOUT 20MIN.I THEN SHUT IT OFF & LET IT SIT FOR 5 MIN.IT...


You could have a fuel pump getting weak or fuel pump relay. One other thing to look into is the oil press. switch malfunctioning or loose connection. The fuel pump/relay get's it's power through this on some GM vehicles. If you have a haynes manual look at it's wiring diagram to verify.

1999 dodge durango is hard to start. Starts with rough idle with some backfire, then idles smooth. after sitting idle for a minute it will act as if wanting to stall on takeoff! Have changed the fuel pump...


FIrst have you tried giving the engine a tune up (ie replaced the spark plugs)

Also you need to check the condition of all the vacumn lines on the engine loss of vacumn can cause poor idling.

Engine starves for fuel after running about 50 miles or so...


Has Neon do same, I ran fuel at low level, on hot day, ran engine until it started to act up & threw a fuel pressure gauge on it. Was at approx 5 psi. Cold next morning, 48-50 psi. Always hot day about 30-40 miles into work in morning, o.k. Sit in hot sun all day & would happen 3-4 times on way home. Sit and let cool, 20 minutes or so & go again for a while. Cool day, no problem. Change pump I would.

You will need to do a fuel pump pressure leak-down test, the pump must not loose more than 5 PSI overnight, u will need a cheap fuel pressure test guage, the test port is on the fuel supply rail to the injectors on the intake manifold, it looks like a tire valve but metal with a plastic cap on it, u may be able to borrow this guage from Kragen, Autozone or a parts store like them, if not they are very cheap, less than $20 US. Run the engine with the test guage hooked up, turn off the engine and then check it in an hour or so, if it drops more than 5 PSI then u will need to replace the fuel pump in the gas tank. One note make sure the connection for the guage is tight with no leakage or the test is invalid
