Hey I think your fuel pump is bad I had the same problem on a 96 f150 it would run for about a minute and shut off I replaced fuel pump and it fixed problem one more thing you need to check if it has duel fuel tanks. check the fuel pump on the frame rail this helps pulling fuel up to engine if this pump is bad it will case the in tank pump to over work and shutdown.

96 olds lss had fuel pump replaced wont stay started long sputter spits ect.


You better find a different mechanic . Before calling a bad fuel pump ,did he do fuel pressure test ? Did he test the electrical circuit ? Did he check mass air flow sensor ,injectors , fuel regulator , engine senors ? How many miles on the vehicle , is the engine in good shape ? Timing chain ?

My 1990 olds cutlass supreme will not stay running it has fuel and has spark. It will start then dies immediately. Any tips has brand new fuel pump


It could still be a fuel problem. The only way to be certain is to put a fuel pressure tester on it. Autozone may rent or loan fuel pressure gauges. Easy to hook up to the shrader valve on the engine fuel rail and test fuel pressure. With key on, pressure must be over 40 psi, 40-44psi is what is called for. If pressure drops below 40 after it starts, then you know it was a fuel problem. Either the fuel filter is clogged, or the pump quits because the oil pressure switch is faulty. That switch is tied into the pump circuit, keeps the pump running after the engine is running.

If fuel pressure stays good, maybe problem is in the ignition system. Have the Ignition Control Module tested, also the crank position sensor.

My '99 chevy truck with 5,7L 350 will start but wont stay running. put new fuel pump and relay switch in


First you must determine if the fuel is stopping or the spark is stopping..If the fuel is stopping this could be a computer problem.. If the spark is stopping then it could be the IGN Module in the distributer. or any nomber of sensors. Squirt a little fuel directly into the Throttle body on the intake manifold.. If the truck runs longer its probably loss of fuel.. Do this several times to make sure, be careful and only use a small amounty of fuel.. you do not want a fire.. RE: Spark: Take a plug wire and an old plug..put the wire on the plug.. hold the plug against a good ground .. have someone crank the engine .. does the plug stop firing? The engine dies.. and will not restart for a minuet or so.. during this "no start" time do the plug test. If the plug will not fire during this time take the module out and take it to Orillys Auto parts.. They can test it.. really expensive part. Don't replace until you know it is BAD..

Put on new fuel pump got pressuer but want stay cranked


Your post is lacking any detail. However, if you are stating that the engine starts after being cranked but dies out (wont stay running) there are 2 ways the fuel pump is activated. When the key is first turned on, there is a 5 second fuel pump run (the ECM energizes the fuel pump relay). After the engine starts, the fuel pump relay will only stay energized when the oil pressure switch closes keeping the fuel pump relay on (oil pressure is above 5-7 psi). If the oil pressure switch is faulty or there is no oil pressure, the engine will stall just after starting.

It won't die when pulling the relay because it has another power path to the fuel pump through the oil pressure switch . Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation watch this video on fuel pump control , shows chrysler first , ford ,then gm . wait for gm an he explains the oil pressure switch . Plus when it won't start ,don't guess or theorize ! Test what's missing ? check for spark , no spark check ignition system , coil's , ignition module , crank sensor etc... has spark ,do a fuel pressure test etc... don't think computer , when it won't start does the check engine light come on with the key on run not start . If light is lit ,nothing wrong with the cumputer . If want to fix cars you really should take some automotive classes . Test don't guess .Watch some other videos crank no start videos etc...

1998 gmc 2500 sle 5.7 wont stay running


Theres only one fuel pump relay, unless you have dual tanks. Be sure you have 55-60 psi fuel pressure. I "think" the oil pressure switch supplies power to the fuel pump after the engine is running.

94 Old Cutlass Ciero 3.1 engine starts and dies won't stay running


Replace the oil pressure switch next to the oil filter. When you turn on the ignition the fuel pump runs to prime the system then turns off. Then the oil pressure switch runs the fuel pump to keep the engine running. To test, connect the fuel pump test wire(located at the left front wheel well) to the battery. This will bypass the pressure switch and the engine should run.

poss. is fuel pressure reg. problem. put a guage on the test port and check press. should be above 35psi. see if it stays running when you spray choke cleaner in the pcv valve steadily while starting. if the engine stays running after a few seconds of running on choke cleaner then probably a bad fuel pump relay cause the oil pressure switch will keep the pump on without the relay when it has good oil pressure.
let me know if ya can do this or if it helps.
