Was the car running before the new pump? If yes, recheck the connection at the pump as well as the fuse under the hood.

If not, please read my tips at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines and let me know if you have questions.

SOURCE: the car wont start when its cold

You can try cleaning the battery terminals, there may be a bad connection. If you get someone to try to start the car while you watch the battery connections, there may be a spark indicating bad connection. Also if any of the terminals heats up, it also shows bad connection

SOURCE: the fule pump went out i replaced it the cars

You say you have spark, and fuel, but you also have to check for compression....Get a pressure guage and check each cylinder, or atleast 3 of them..It is very possible that your timing belt has popped..

Check out your fuel pump main relay and fuse. Often the relay that controls the main fuel pump is also the one the supplies voltage to the coils.

My 2001 chevy silverado is having trouble starting i changed the fule filter and i can hear my fule pump runing but it takes right at 3 cranks for it to start.. It would try to start but just die on me......


Sounds like it. On new automobiles the fuel pump is in the gas tank, cools the pump, but you can disconnect the pump and put on an outside pump instead of pulling the gas tank and replacing gas pump and tank. Leave old pump in gas tank.

My 2000 Oldsmobile Alero does not start. It cranks fine, has a new battery, new spark plugs, and I can hear the fuel pump working. I was thinking of checking the fuel filter next. Much help needed


check for a good spark first, if there is none look at ignition circuits its more likley this part,
it could also be the car alarm the immobiliser shutting of the ignition ""stops it getting nicked?"
try resetting the alarm if you take off pipe to carb and there is fule pumping out!!! fule filter is "ok" for starting up on!!! take care working with fule!

Fuel pump kicks on, but car won't start If I put fuel in the carb it starts right up, What could be the problem?


have you took the fule pipe off from the card to see if fule is getting to it? it could also be a blocked fule filter,, or an "emergency stop velve" in the closed poshion,, or even a blocked or sticking carburettor float velve???? if the pump is pumping fule to the carb its got to be inside the carb thats fulty?

My 1994 chevy s 10 blazer starts only in morning or after sitting for a long time(1 or 2 days) has new fule pump fule fliter fule presser is great have strong spark new plugs and wire relay is good motor...


I would definately check around the intake gaskets with any spray lubricant or cleaner.Do this while the engine is running. If it starts to stumble then concentrate the spray until you pinpoint the area of fault. This is all I have to offer without being there. Good luck,Dana

Fule guge


HI, you will need to replace the sending unit that is located inside the tank. this unit is part of the fuel pump assembly and it sends the level of the fuel to the gauge, via wire transfer. there is a floater that is attached to the pump assembly, and it is damaged. replacing this sending unit will fix this issue.
