Question about 1993 Geo Prizm

1 Answer

We were driving along fine, came to a stop. The car died. I started it back up and put it in drive and it died again, so I tried starting it again and it wouldn't start. When I tried to start it, it sounded like it wasn't getting fuel. Could it be a fuse, relay, or the fuel pump? Thanks for any help on this.

I would start with the fuel pump fuse. If that is good, then have someone sit behind your car and you turn the key to the accessory position. When you do that your friend should here a humming sound comming from the gas tank. That means that the pump is working and pressurizing the fuel lines to your injectors to start the car. If the pump is working check your fuel filter, it seems like that maybe your problem. Over time dirt and debris get mixed with your fuel from the gas tank and get trapped in the fuel filter and slowly stops flow for the fuel to get through the filter. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2004 Audi A4 3L won't start

the problem is not the relay switch the problem to me sounds like the fuel filter needs to be replaced so i wouldnt be messing with the relay switch because the relay switch would be harder to replace.

SOURCE: is their a fuse for the fuel pump ( not the fuel

it appears that fuse 30 and the relay right beside it are for the fuel pump. the relay is definately for the fuel pump tho. it's located in the fuse panel inside the engine compartment near the battery.

SOURCE: Which relay is the fuel pump relay?

The fuel pump relay switch, if that is what you are looking for, is actually a red button hidden underneath the hood latch. We just had to do the same thing and that will fix it. Just press the red button and you should be fine.

2005 DODGE CARAVAN STALLS OUT AFTER YOU FILL IT UP WITH GAS


When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

2000 s10 Blazer dies very 3-6 weeks for no reason


i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick
