Question about 2000 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Car will start and shut right off

When I turn the car on it will start and then shut right off. I was told it was the fuel pump and I had it replaced but the car is still doing the same thing. It is not clicking like it is the started and the dash if flashing fuse. I have had all the fuses checked and they are fine. What else could it be? I was told it may be there is no/not enough gas getting to the engine?????

SOURCE: my fuel pump fuse blows i have a short,i un pluged the fuel pump,i unpluged the coil to the dist.

disconnect wiring to pump. install new fuse for the pump and turn over ignition. the car wont start because the fuel pump wiring is diconnected. check the fuse to the fuel pump, if the fuse did not blow when the pump is disconnected it is a faulty fuel pump. I read this somewhere and a garage is up to 850 dollars in parts and labor only to offer me more parts and labor not relevent to my problem. I am towing it home and running this test my self.

The fuse for the fuel pump is pretty much the toggle switch between tanks, if that goes out, you will not have either tank.. IF you had an accident, there is a kill switch somewhere behind the dash on that truck that disables the fuel pump and must be reset.

2001 Mercury Sable Intermittent Fuel Pump?

You are right that it could be either component, or something else electrical. The security system will kill the fuel system if the wrong key is used or the system is acting up.
A mechanic would check base fuel pressure with a gauge and also see if the pump is getting power from the relay when it fails to start.

1995 jeep keeps cutting out is this what happens when a fuel pump is bad

The parts which determine whether or not a vehicle "turns over" are the battery, starter and alternator (if there is one). The fuel pump has nothing at all whatever to do with that. As for the "cutting out", that could be a fuel pump or even a fuel filter problem. Could also be the carb or deterioration in the gas tank. Good luck. . .

Car won't start

I had the same problem it was the fuel pump itself. Have it pressure line tested, if it is lower then 60 psi then its bad. Mine was reading 55psi and would not start my blazer. If i sprayed starter fluid in the throttle body vrrrm start right up. This is because (what I was told) it is a high pressure furl system. also make sure the line you replaced is installed right and is right line

Fuel pump relay & fuel pump

when you turn the key on the pump should run to purge the system . so now you have fuel pressure for starting. this stage lasts about 10 seconds then the fuel pump doesnt turn on again till the computer see's oil pressure then turns the pump on. if the inertia switch has been activated it wont send the first amount of fuel.
