Bad Fuse,pump relay,Fuel filter,weak fuel pump,pluged fuel filter in the tank.bad pressure regulator,check to see if the pump runs in the tank.you should here it run while you crank the engine. if you can then check the filter.it should be open,not restricted.then check fuel pressure,at the fuel rail,with a guage 36 to 40psi is normal. Any less pressure will give poor performance.Check to see if the pressure regulator is or has ben leaking gas into the vacumn line to the intake manifold,if you can see smell,or detect any raw gas i would suspect a faulty pressure regulator.And it may be returning the fuel pressure back to the tank instead of controlling the fuel pressure to run the engine.

Car has spark and fuel pressure but won't run except on starting fluid then quits as soon as I stop spraying.


if you spark and fuel but only run when you spray starting fluid then you will need to check to see what the fuel pressure is if its too low the car will not start. also check the fuel injector/s to see if they are being operated. this is a fuel problem of some sort.

Vehicle starts runs for 1-2 minutes then quits, Starts right up. Fuel is being shut down.


Also what no one is mentioning is to make sure you have oil pressure, or that the oil pressure sensor is working, alot of newer vehicles run the fuel pumps off of them oil pressure sensor so if your vehicle stops pumping oil and lubricating, it shuts the fuel pump off to protect itself from damage or further damage

Have you tried reading the trouble codes from the ecu to see what's actually gone bad? A bad crank sensor will not allow the ecu to pulse the injectors and spray fuel.

Car has gas but won't start. Sprayed starter


the most likely reason is a failed fuel pump, plugged fuel filter or defective fuel regulator-you need to have the fuel line pressure tested-you can get the use (free) of a guage set from most commercial auto parts stores.

1995 dodge 2500 diesel starts then quits


Your shutdown solenoid might be getting weak. Locate the solenoid (on or near the fuel pump) and remove it. Leave it plugged in and turn the ignition on, then see if you can pull the plunger out with your fingers. It shouldnt budge. Also, check to see if it gets hot. It sounds as though its losing its pull right after the engine starts.

Try using some starting fluid in the intake pickup; continue spraying while someone starts the car. If the car starts up, the fuel pump has gone bad.

Chevy tahoe wont start its as if its not getting gas


If you think it is not getting gas, then it may not be. You would need to verify this by installing a fuel pressure gauge. This truck MUST have at least 55 PSI. Even a few LBS less, the truck will not start.
If you do not have pressure, or it is low, a plugged fuel filter or faulty fuel pump would be the most likely problem. If no pressure at all, a quick test to check the fuel pump is to have someone in the truck trying to start it, and you go under and bang on the gas tank with a hammer. Many times this will free up a sticking pump. But, it will fail again.

Intermittent fuel-flow problem


Been having the same problem. Ended up replacing the grey wire from the fuel pump relay to the fuel pump. The grey wire leaves the relay and then branches in two. One wire goes to the ECM to tell it the fuel pump has power. The other goes to the fuel pump.
