I don't understand, It's fuel injected, check the fuel pressure, I bet your fuel pump is weak or the fuel filter is clogged, fuel pressure for your car is 43 psi.
You need to replace the fuel filter when replacing the fuel pump so change it first, save ya money if it's just a dirty filter.

I change my fuel pump , filter on my 1994 Isuzu pickup truck ,4cylinder 2.3 liters and I have no gas a carburetor. I try using starting fuel to start it and its starts and dies . How can I fix it?


Take the gas line off at carb, and crank the engine over. If gas does not start spurting out from the gas line, then the new pump is not working right. Maybe the pump arm is not situated right against the eccentric gear that makes the pump work. You would need to re-situate the fuel pump.

My car wont start up


First of all, the new fuel pump may be bad. disconnect line at fuel filter where it goes through filter. and see if fuel flows, or have someone to put hand flat on bottom of tank and try to start car. if fuel pump is working you will feel a vibration on tank. if it does not work, check the fuel pump fuse in fuse box before you exchange it.and or the fuel pump relay! when car is running it runs constantly, when you simply turn key to on position, it runs for about 3 seconds(until fuel pressure in line comes up. and then cycles off.

I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

Water in gas tank


will need to completely drain tank, either remove tank from car or if has an external electric fuel pump you can disconnect fuel line between pump and engine, connect 12v battery to power supply of pump and pump gas out. make sure to run line to bucket to collect gas/water mix, remember water is heavier that gas so water will be on bottom of tank and first to pump out

Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

My 1996 dodge neon is not getting any fuel to the system. theres gas in the car a brand new fuel pump and filter. what could be wrong?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Fuel is pumped out of the tank by the fuel pump. It then goes to the fuel filter. Then, it goes through the gas lines to the injectors and engine. You need to scan your gas lines and make sure they are not damaged or clogged. If the lines are ok, you need to check your injectors. Check your fuel pump fuse/relays and reset button, if equipped. I am guessing the car will not start? Thanks for using FixYa.

sounds like you have a leaky gas line,...the fuel pump is in the gas tank, so when you turn the key on, the pump is activated and pressurizes the line,..... good to get it checked out on a lift,....good luck, cracklin joe

Need help starting the car after running out of gas


your fuel pump has failed from overheating, the pump is cooled by the gas it runs in, when u run out of gas or low on fuel many times this destroys the pump,replace the fuel pump.
