Seems silly but did you check gas level first? If okay then probably either fuel filter or pump. Possibly a fuse or relay as well. Do you hear a whirring sound when moving the key from off to run? If so pump is probably okay. I would change the fuel filter then. Good lucj. Let mme know if I be of further assistance

Mercury sable 1999 while driving stopped at light engine shut down an will just turn over not restart

The first thing you must do is check for fuel delivery, you may have run out of gas even if the gage says there is fuel in it.

Where is fuel shut off valve on f150 2009

I own a 2009 F-150, & the owners manual included this information; "In the event of a moderate to severe collision, this vehicle is equipped w/ a fuel pump shut-off feature that stops the flow of the fuel to the engine. Not every impact will cause a shut-off. Should your vehicle shut off after a collision due to this feature, you may restart your vehicle by doing the following; 1. Turn the ignition switch to the off position. 2. Turn the ignition to the on position. In some instances the vehicle may not restart the first time you try to restart & may take one additional attempt." I scoured the manual, & there is no mention of a "switch" anywhere, that it is an automatic system. probably too late to help, but there it is.

I have a 1997 Mountaineer . It was running perfectly. I came home and shut it off for 10 min. When I tried to restart it it would barely run..Real real slow RPM for 30 sec and shut off and would not...

It could be a fuel pump issue or a fuel filter issue too, I would first check the fuse for the fuel pump and replace the fuel filter and try it, if not have the fuel pump tested and replaced if necessary.

My 03 grand am acts like no gas and wont start.

well, something is blocking your fuel line, try replacing the fuel filter and clean the fuel pump, rust might be blocking it. if you have time try draining your fuel tank too then get rid of the rusts. this will surely help

2004 ford f350diesle hard starting depress throtle nothing there

Dear dsmalley427,
I think it sounds like a fuel injection problem. You get fuel for a while until the injector backs up and then all of a sudden NO FUEL. The engine quits and the pressure drops and flow returns enough for you to restart. If I were you I would get to a good mechanic and check the fuel injectors.
OR--try adding a fuel additive that would clean the injectors.--Signed jwr

Try the fuel pump relay. Next try a fuel pump. ( might be getting hott and shutting off.) Finally try a computer, ( i had that same problem and the car was shutting down on the highway ) I put a computer in it and it fixed it for good.
