The pump will run to try to remain it's wanted fuel pressure but it should shut down when the pressure is achieved.You may need to replace the throttle position sensor,but hearing the pump run for a few seconds is normal and you may hear it after shut down but only for a few seconds,if you hear it for a longer period then you likely need to replace the fuel pump relay.

Engine revs up down while in idle


If its been without the line for over a year, I Highly doubt it. Look into IAC valve. Most are installed with 2 screws, easy to adjust. Idle Air Control Valve. Look that up, for a start.

Hi any solution for my 2005 407 16 hdi pls ?car wont start unless gas pedal pressed,and when it starts the car is not responding for gas pedal ,i press the pedal all the way down and still going slow


Sounds like your gas cable is loose or has slipped off the injector pump. It simply clips onto the pump. Locate your injector/fuel pump and check the wire cable going to it is connected. You should also be able to manually rev up your engine from there by pushing the fuel level back and forth. see how you go. All the best

Gas pedal not working


I will list several things it could be first bad throttle position sensor,need to hook up diagnostic scanner to verify.2nd possible fuel pump not putting up enough pressure when this happens generally when you push the accelerator pedal the car will die,now if you have a throttle cable still for the accelerator pedal the cable could have broken or came off on top of the engine you can see it .is it turbo charged bad turbo can cause this.lastly the convertor could be plugged which cause the exhaust to be come restricted so the engine cant rev up ,you will hjere like a hissing sound when you try to rev up or put your hand at the end of the tailpipe see if it has good flow out the tailpipe

Engine over revs throtle sticking T reg lanos


first off.... does the engine over rev on its own? or only after you press the gas pedal?
does your vehicle have a throttle body that is electronic or cable actuated?..if electronic and revs on own could be one of two issues 1) throttle body itself 2)throttle pedal switch on gas pedal)
if cable and revs after pushing gas pedal ..either there is too much carbon built up on the throttle plate or the throttle cable has begun to fail.. remove the intake tube from the air cleaner to the throttle body and inspect

It idles just fine but when you accelerate its sputters and dies if you do not work the pedal. the timing is good.. the Carb is getting plenty of gas. it has been turned up. just cannot figure it out


Can you raise the revs by gently pressing the pedal? That will largely eliminate the electrics or will it just not rev at all? Is the idling affected? Have you checked that the accelerator pump is working as it should, Is the mixture correct? (What did you turn up, the idle speed or the mixture? and is the timing advance working as it should? Is the fuel pump working properly? Make sure it's pumping enough fuel. Failing all that it could be contaminated fuel or a blockage.
You say the carb is getting plenty of gas but it sounds like fuel starvation or excessive richness if you can get the revs up eventually.
Disconnect the fuel pipe to the carb, put it in a deep bowl as you dont want it splashing all over the place and get someone to crank it. It should provide a steady good flow of fuel. Finally check all vacuum hoses/pipes for leaks
