I would check the fuel pressure regulator, as it my be faulty as well. You can check the pressure on the fuel pump to see if it is up to specs. Any Autozone can tell you what the specs should be and also loan you the equipment to check it yourself! You will have to leave a deposit, but it is completely refundable!

I have geo metro94/3 while driving engine shut down will not start no more

Hello, the usual culprit is the fuel filter being clogged. Sometimes a clogged fuel filter will let the fuel through and other times it will not. This means the car will run some of the times, where other times it will starve your engine of fuel causing it to stop and not start right away. The next possibility is your ignition system. Cracked distributor cap, a short in that area, bad coil wire, or any other obstacle causing your spark to not reach the spark plugs. Easiest and cheapest place to start is to replace your fuel filter and eliminate that as the cause. Your fuel pump could also be the issue but you can usually hear a whirring sound before you start a car which is the fuel pump doing its job. Hope this helps.

Where is the fuel sensor on a 1997 jeep grand cherokee

Have you checked the fuel filter? I would pull the fuel line apart before the filter to see if the pump is putting gas into the line. With key on, the pump should run for 2 seconds to pressurize the lines and fuel rail. And when the engine is cranking over, the pump should be running constant and putting gas into the line. If gas shoots out, possibly the filter is clogged or the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail is defective. If no gas comes out, possibly the pump filter sock is clogged or the pump is defective.
Very unusual for the pump to run and have NO fuel pressure.

1991 Miata Starting problem

find the filter pull it off and clean it if u cant clean it replace it they usally are cheap on older vehicles but with the filter off turn the car have someone turn the car to the on position so the pump is pumping and see how good it is coming out of the line if not very good then your gas tank line to the fuel filter is clogged but if its fine check the next fuel line the one on the fuel rail there is a bolt on the fuel rail crack it open and have someone turn the key if gas comes out then you are getting fuel and that would mean your injectors are bad

The fuel is not getting to the engine in my 2001 Ford Taurus. The car will start but it won't stay on. Please help

possible problems would be fuel regulator problems, bad fuel pump, clogged fuel return line, clogged fuel pickup screen, clogged fuel filter, or clogged or stuck fuel tank breather valve/line/cap. easiest things first. look for a disconnected, lose, or warn vacuum line from the fuel pressure regulator to the intake manifold. next try starting the car without the fuel cap. if that works you probably need to clean or replace your gas cap. next i would check for fuel pressure. u can buy a pressure gauge from autozone for around 30 bucks and some will just do it for you. if youre pressure is good while the ign is on but when the car starts it drops your best bet is something is clogged. if it doesnt drop then you may have dirty injectors, bad spark plugs, or a bad distributor. put some injectory cleaner in there are run the car a few times, replace your plugs and wire, and have your distributor tested at autozone. if all that is fine/doesnt change anything you have an idle problem somewhere. test this by pressing the gas down a little bit while starting the car. if it stays running then you have idle problems. if so just comment and i'll help you out. i hope for your sake your regulator vacuum line is just unplugged or leaking. good luck to ya

Nissan sentra fuel problem. Put new filter and fuel pump but no gas getting to filter to get to pump. Gas line problem from tank?

I believe this is a manual fuel pump and you may have lost the prime, no fuel in hose to tank. If the hose from rear frame to tank has a break or hole, it will **** air and not fuel from tank. If this is not the case, possible clogged fuel hose, tubing, or pickup tube in tank assuming you have turned the engine over serveral times and there is enough fuel in tank. Some tanks do not pickup from very bottom because of water laying in bottom of tank from condensation.

Runs for 3-4 min then stalls, wont start until next day.

i would look at those items first by checking battery voltage at fuel pump if car stalls but pump is still getting voltage then i would pull fuel filter back out and check to see if installed correctly also blowing through filter to make sure its not clogged in rare occasions can be defective or if installed backwards if possible can colapse inside should have arrow pointing towards direction of engine if all is well check relay then crankshaft sensor

Have to use starter fluid to start my car

Starving for fuel. Start by making sure the fuel pump is running. Turn the ignition on without starting the car and listen for the pump. It should run for a few seconds and then shut off if you don't start the engine. If you hear nothing, check the fuse. If the fuse is good then it can be a defective fuel pump relay, pump itself. If you hear the pump run and then shut off, suspect a clogged fuel filter, defective fuel pressure regulator, or an extremely weak fuel pump that is running but pumping no fuel.
