In that case you must check first the fuse and the relay, located in the fuse box, itself on drivers side fender well. If they are ok then either the pump is faulty (you must take it out to test it) or the ECM has detected a fault  and you must read its codes to find what fault.

If you have any rubber fuel lines in the fuel system, I would replace them. Over a period of time the insides of the hoses swell up and stop the fuel flow to the engine.

Thee new fuels today go bad after around 3 weeks because of the ethonol content. Put a can of Sea Foam in the gas tank see if that helps clean it out. Best bet is to drain the tank put new fuel in it with a can of Sea Foam, then give it a good long run until the tank is empty. Re fill the tank and put the correct amount of Stabil in the with the gas, this will stop the gas from turning into sugar and it works for years.
Good luck

My car won't turn oer it cranks but won't start


THe problem is that there is no fuel due to fuel dirty fuel filter. When you are at constant speed as 50 mph, you don't have to press gas pedal to much requiring instant fuel. However every time you need to press the pedal, you can experience this problem. Now it is really clogged up ,so fuel is not delivered to the fuel distributor so it can't start. Need to replace fuel filter.

When the fuel tank gets below 1/4, it acts as if it does not want to crank up and run. When I get the gas in it, it dies. It takes it a few minutes to finally go.


Probably there is too much dirt in the tank, or a hole at some poin on the vertical pipe inside the tank. This pipe however should be serviceable (pulled up) w/o taking the tank off car. Find a manual for the exact procedure.

Acting like it is out of gas


Sounds like a bad fuel pump, that's exactly how they act when they die.

It's usualy inside the gas tank so it's a dealership type of repair, you got to pull the tank, and sinc you filled it, it's eithe got to be drained, or use a transmission lift to get it out, NOT a home job unless you've done it before and own a hydraulic lift

My 2000 Tahoe will not crank unless you have over 1/4 tank of gas, last week it started dying while driving down the road, After 100 miles it died and then got more frequent and now dies after a mile. It...


Try replacing the fuel filter first and the primary fuel filter screen in the fuel pump may be dirty also. As for the the one in the gas tank which is a part of the fuel pump, your just going to have to keep the gas tank half full and add some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank for the next feet fill ups. As for the fuel filter along the frame rail on the drivers side, they have a life of 30,000 miles or 1 year and needs to be replaced within those recommended intervals. Good luck and hope this helps, Note: the gas is what keeps the fuel pump cool, so low fuel in the gad tank will have the fuel pump run hotter causing it to fail prematurely
