Well start by checking the fuses and if a ford check the auto shut down switch, this switch shuts off fuel pump if car is hit or tapped hard enough, if this is a ford and the switch is on and the fuses are good then i would stay its the relay box, maybe try a used one.

WONT START HAS A NEW FUEL PUMP BATTERY IS GOOD


Is there spark coming from plugs . Electronic ignition? Check fuse box for blown fuses .
Pull a wire out from spark plug and place it near the plug. Start engine while someone else watches if there is spark going ( do not handle wire when doing this ) if new pump it has to be primed before use .

Ran out of petrol now it wont start


prime it.
try key on 10 time? (on, off, on....)
if the pump dont run keyon,(1/2 cars down) then it must be cranked to prime,or on some cars there is a DLC connector under hood
for pump hotwiring for just this. (oops 2000 dont have it...)
btw : the pump is fuel lubricated and cooled with fuel so you might have fused it (melted it guts out ) running it dry. dont.

id use a pressure gage to see if i could get spec pressure now.
alldata.com has the steps here.

check 12vdc to fuel pump
check all fuses. #13 and #31

Wont srart no fuel


could be fuel pump or fuel pump relay in the power distribution box . get another person to turn the key to on but dont start it. first lay down near the fuel tank and tell the other person to turn the key on and listen for the pump to engage and prime momentarily.if it pumps the relay is good if not the fuel pump is inop.

I have a 93 ford tempo sometimes i turn the key and the power comes on but the check engine light doesnt when this happens the car wont start later i try it light comes on and i here what i think is the...


Sounds like the connection to your ECM (the car's computer) isn't tight. find the ECM and pull connector off (might want to take off your negative battery connection first) and check if all the elec. pins are good(not bent), then reconnect and tighten it.The check engine light comes directly off the computer, so that's why I think you have a bad connection there.

It seems i am not getting any power to fuel pump, replaced pump still no power dont hear pump turn on at key on position check relays but not sure on good or not


Replace the oil pressure switch for the third wire on that sends 12 volts to the fuel pump upon turning the ignition key on to prime. Once oil pressure is achived the computer shuts that circuit off and turns on the fuel pump relay to power the pump till you shut off the engine

Running fine then now wont start, fuel pump or will the fuel relay module cause the car to get no gas


More likely the fuel pump.........check for power to the pump on the gray wire at the fuel pump connector at the tank.(wires from the tank)You should see a prime cycle voltage as you turn the key on...if the key has been off 15 seconds. If you see a test light, light.......change the fuel pump.
Tip....a lot of relays are the same in the relay center....switch the fuel pump relay for one of the (same) others to test it if needed.

Before you do this....sit in the car and turn on the key to run.....not start.......do you hear the pump do it's prime cycle?
Total silence means.......in 99% of cases...a new fuel pump is needed.
If you hear it.......no pump should be needed....look elsewhere first.

I would check the fuel lines themselves and make sure there is no blockage. If not you might want to check your fuel injectors and see if they need to be replaced. also make sure you didnt install fuel filter backwards.

fuel pump died replaced it truck ran poorly afterwards. Had a prussuer test done pump determend pump was no good. Put in another ran good for 2 days started running poorly hard to start no power. 2nd fuel pump. So i figure another bad new fuel pump wow changed it put in a third brand new fuel pump. Still will not eve start now. I had it tuned up 2 months ago new plugs rotor, cap, etc. put in a new fuel filter made sure it is on proper checked all connections for leaks. this cannot be a fuel pump problem now. no problem with the elctrical i figure i have great spark on ignition tester. I can hear the fuel pump prime when i turn the key. but when i went and checked the fuel port i had no pressure. When it is being cranked gas sews out of the test port. Also i dont if this is comon cause i used to turn my keyand go. but when i have someone turn the key and i listen at the gas tank whn the key is shut off i hear gs spraying back into the gas tank. So i am open for opinions.
