Question about 1997 Subaru Impreza

2 Answers

Our 97 wrx would not start. We called racq and he banged under the car to get the fuel pump going. The next week it was at the mechanics and it wouldn't start again. They had to bang on the fuel pump behind the back seat while turning the key and finally it started. Three weeks later it won't start again. Called racq they got it going after banging it and sting with relay. Later that night it started then died and we can't start it anymore. Racq came again and there was power going to the pump but no pressure coming from it. Does this sound like it's definitely a faulty fuel pump?

97 Isuzu Rodeo,Will not start if you let it sit overnight until I primary it,It ran out of gasA few weeks ago, I am thinking it has dirt in the fuel filter or carb,But I'm not for sure,So anycomments


This vehicle is fuel injected and will have no carburator. You may have a fuel pump problem. Allowing a fuel injected vehicle with an electric fuel pump to run out of fuel is not a good idea. The fuel pump relies on fuel for cooling and it could be damaged. you can try banging on the bottom of the fuel tank while someone tries to start the vehicle. If the vehicle starts or tries to start, suspect a fuel pump problem and replacement will be required

I have a 2000 dodge Durango slt. It suddenly won't start. I checked all fuses and relays. New battery was installed. All power is good. All my accesseries work lights,radio,head and tail lights...eve


Yes bang on the fuel tank with a rubber mallet the try starting it. If it starts don't trust it, the pump is going out soon, maybe today or tomorrow or next week, just don't trust it. If it don't start check and see when you turn the key on if the fuel pump engages or not. If it does then there is another problem

My vehicle stopped dead at set of lights and would not start, called RACQ he installed new battery $165 Stated that was problem, drove less than 1/2 kilometre down road, felt the vehicle ****. Continued...


Sounds like you have a fuel issue. It could be a fuel pump cutting in and out. It could be fuel pressure regulator, or an injector not spraying correct. I think it's time to find an honest educated repairman.

Fuel pump not working


If you are sure it is not working then you will need to replace it...

To get the thing started though...get underneath the car and bang on the under side of your fuel tank a few times...next go to the side your fuel tank is located and give it a slap...this will hopefully jar the fuel pump into working for a little while anyway.

Mazda 626 2.2L Turbo 1989 - Alternator - Fuel Pump


Hi am just up the road on the SSC, it is easier to remove the alternator from underneath the vehicle & if you look under the carpet under the rear seat there is a plate which gives you access to the fuel pump cover in the tank. The pump can be accessed from there. If you want the workshop Manuals I have just uploaded them.
You can download the GD 626 Workshop manual & the Turbo supplement by going to the 626.net site.
Cheers

Fuel Pump issue with 95 WRX STi


On both cars, check the fuel pump/guage harness connector under rear seat - the old fuel pump draws too much current and melts the connector causing poor conatct & voltage drop off. Easy to see usually, just cut the two fuel pump wires from either side of the connector and re-join with new crimp connectors, or solder joint.

2004 VW Passat just over 60K miles. Car has run great until this morning where the entire electrical systems starting acting weird. Wouldn't turn over and then started to. Waited a second tried it...


Could be a faulty fuel pump, they are notorious for acting unpredictibly when they start to go bad. My bet is in a week it won't start at all. Try banging on the fuel tank the next time it won't start, if that fixes it it is prbably a fuel pump.

Running you fuel pump until its at E is hard/bad on your fuel pump since gasoline is the fuel pumps lubrication.
