Most likely fuel filter, pump or clogged injectors. Check for pressure in fuel rail at valve on rail.

take a fuel pressure test on it , also see if your timing is right , you may still have a bad fuel pump in the tank ?. take a little ether and spray it into the intake and see if it starts that way if it does your fuel pump it bad,

Driving the car and it died going down the road.. i think it might be my fuel pump, but im not sure

Could be a distributor problem; see video above.

The fuel pump should humm for a few seconds when you turn the key to the run position. You can remove the gas cap and listen for the fuel pump to run while someone else turns the key.

If your timing belt breaks then your engine will stop running.

The Master relay has a habit of going bad due to poorly soldered connections.

My 92 maxima se just died as i was driving it.i put gas in it and it ran for 2 miles then died again


could be a fuel pump. hammer on the gas tank and see if it tries to start. if not then spray carb cleaner or starting fluid into the air intake and see if it starts and runs for a few seconds if so your looking at a bad fuel pump most likely.

Car died on road engine turn over but will not start


Try spraying starting fluid into the air intake, with the help of someone else starting the car. As they crank over the car, spray the starting fluid into the air intake. Do this for at least 15 seconds. If the car tries to start up the fuel pump has probably gone bad. When turning the key to the on position do you hear the fuel pump humming? If the pump is not humming the fuel pump is probably bad.

Fuel pump wont work 1990 mercury sable station wagon car turns over but wont start it stalled and wouldnt start again but a few hours later it started briefly and i made it about 500 yards and it died and...


fuel pump bad or fuel pump relay bad. Likely fuel pump.

Spray some starting fluid in air intake and see if it starts. If yes, replace fuel pump in fuel tank. drop tank for access. About a $250 repair at shop. call around.

Car will start for a few seconds then dies.


Still sounds fuel related to me. Getting minimal fuel enough to start & or rev, but not maintaining proper pressure required. Try this. Get a can of WD-40 ready, remove air intake hose at throttle body. Start car & when it starts to begin to die, spray some WD-40 into front of throttle body & see if engine continues to run, as long as you keep giving it squirts of 1-2 seconds. If it does, change fuel filter first, but be prepared to do pump too. If you can get a fuel pressure test done on it, that would be even better. Let me know what happens.

My 2001 new Beetle will not stay running. It starts up, then 5-8 seconds later will sputter out and die. If I pump the gas peddle a bit after it starts, it trys to stay running longer but then sputters out...


Hi There,
Try this: You will need 2 people - Have someone Spray Starting Fluid in the throttle then start the car and have someone spray the fluid continuously into the throttle. If the car continues to run you have a fuel problem, but if it stalls out, replace the coil pak. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
