Engine cranks, runs for 1 or 2 seconds and then stops.


Two items to check. The crankshaft sensor will reduce fuel pump pressure if it miscounts the RPM. The plastic strainer in the fuel tank can break apart and clog the pump intake in the tank. When the engine quits, the fuel pump is stopped and the loose particles are returned to the tank bottom.

In either case, try checking the fuel pressure at the test tap on the fuelrail.

Engine quit at freeway speed !


Could be the fuel pump or pump relay going bad.To check relay simply replace it with another.It also could be the crank sensor or cam sensor.

96 T100 (3.4), will only run for 2-3 seconds then quit, change fuel filter, pump, cam sensor and crank sensor still won't run, but will run on ether. Where to go next?


What you are telling me is the engine is firing the plugs but not getting fuel.
When you changed the fuel pump and filter, did you check the fuel pressure at the rail ?
Are the injectors getting power and ground pulse ??

Fuel pump not working


First check where your fuel pump relay is then check it or have it checked to make sure it works proper. Then check all fuses in the auto to make sure all are good. If after all this checks ou and still no fuel pump sound from the tank if you stick you head close to the tank the pump can be heard. If you do hear a pump running this could be a sign your fuel filter needs changed it is clogged up. if no sound pull the fuel pump and supply 12V power to it on the ground away from the car and gas tank and after it has properly drained of fuel and dried. If this pump works on the ground you may look at your cam sensor. If while you are cranking your car and you see the rpm gauge move this means the cam sensor is reading if you see no movement at all change the cam sensor. Often when the cam sensor goes you may as well change the crank sensor as well to prevent repeating the down time of your car later on down the road.

check the asd relay swap it with another like it. also check fuses and old car alarm if it had one.the cam and crank sensor will not affect fuel pressure. the cam sensor should not stop this car from starting. but the crank sensor will. good luck.
