    Same problem Car shut off while driving felt like no gas but she was 3\4 full. Had to tow her home. replaced fuel pump checked fuse
    still no go

  • dobbinc Sep 13, 2010

    To do this I would have to have her towed to a garage and they would charge big $$



    This is what i am trying to avoid.



    Is this reset the same as the power pack?

Hi! You may want to have the PCM (powertrain control module) resetted. The PCM has connectivity on all electrical current that runs inside the car including the engine, transmission, etc. If the PCM is faulty everything else fails. One good reason why the fuel pump is not working eventhough you have a new fuel pump and relay. Have it resetted and you'll be good. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

There is no fuel shutoff on a GM vehicle. Did you check the fuse and the fuel pump relay? Have you replaced the fuel filter which may be clogged? Are you sure a lack of fuel was the problem.

    Sorry I forgot that on your Malibu, the fuel pump filter is part of the fuel pump module. You replaced it when you replaced the fuel pump. Are you 100% sure your problem is a lack of fuel? To find out purchase a can of starter fluid. Spay some into the intake or the air filter and see if it will start. If it does the problem is not a lack of fuel. You can also have a fuel pressure test run to see if you have around 55 psi of pressure. If it will start with starter fluid then the fuel pressure regulator may be bad.

    Sorry but I do not know exactly where it is located. I am sure your auto parts store can tell you the location. It looks like this.

Signs my 95 chevy tahoe fuel pump is failing


For how long after does it make noise it's not uncommon for the pump to stay running 3-7 seconds after shut down however if it getting noisy you may need to change your fuel filter restrictions in the system will make it noisier

Going down the road and the engine cuts off but every thing else is working i have the right psi on the full line had it towed to the house the next day went out and started it it ran for about 2 or 3 min...


sounds like one of two things, first things first make sure your car has gas in it sometimes the gage can be off and show gas in it when there is very little, if the car is parked on a hill that could also be letting the gas flow away from the fuel pump also causing the car to sputter, If it has gas then your fuel pump is out and will need replaced. hope this helped

Your issue is with either spark or fuel delivery and you need to check the components in each system for proper operation. Such as pump, cables, camnshaft sensor, igniter, etc.

could be another failed pump...it happens sometimes...check filter and test for pump operation...however best time to test is when it's in "no start" condition.(testing while working tells you it's working, not what's happening when it's not)

Does the electric fuel pump come on when you turn the key? It should make a buzzing noise for 3 seconds or so.
