Hello! Lets check a few things...In the engine compartment fuse box is fuse N (20A) good?

Next reset the inertia fuel cut off switch...It is located at the rear of the cargo compartment on the passenger side...See diagram...Also test the Dark Green/Yellow wire on that switch with the key on...Must have + 12 volts...If resetting the switch is no help and +12 volts is not present on the Dark Green/Yellow wire the problem is looking back at the fuel pump relay...But lets check what I've given you first...Guru.............Saailer

    Hello! Do not use a test light, you may damage circuity in the Power Control Module (PCM). Let me be sure I understand you. There is + 12 volts at the fuel pump on the Pink/Black wire? If this is correct one of two things is wrong. #1 - There isn't a ground at the plug on the fuel pump. #2 - The +12 volts on the Pink/Black wire has a open pin in the connector...Lets try this again so I can be sure.

    Use a volt meter...Pull the connector from the fuel pump...Put the meter across the Pink/Black and Black pins in the connector...Turn on the key...Do you read +12 volts on the meter? I'll be on line until 4:30 EDT...Tell me what you read...Saailer

    Yes I did that. But when I hook the pump back up the pump dont run. When you test the pump its good.

    Hello! We have a real gremlin here..We will find it...I do not ask questions to insult your knowledge, your obviously a very smart guy, but we missed something.......The pump was purchased new, correct? Can you tell me the part number of the pump you installed?

    Set your meter on X10 ohm scale and read across the pump terminals with the connector off...Record the reading...With the key off, and the meter set the same way, read from the Black wire in the plug to the negative terminal of the battery...Long run so use a jumper cable from the battery back to the meter lead...Record the reading...Even though you read +12 volts across the pump connector pins doesn't insure there is enough current to run the pump...I suspect that the ground side of the circuit has is resistive...

    I'm here, send results.................Saailer

87 celebrity 2.8. cranks but dies within seconds i replaced the I.A.C. fuel pump fuel press. reg. fuel filter plugs wires air filter upper intake gaskets coil packs, and the gas cap.

Will it keep running if starter fluid is sprayed into a vac hose when it's started? If not it's a spark problem.
If it does keep running then it is lacking fuel.
Remember,the fuel pump runs off power from the oil pressure switch once you use up the fuel from the "prime cycle" when you first turn the key on.

Engine will only keep run by pumping throttle

Hi there,

first thing to do is check the fuel flow - clean the in-line as you did and change the canister filter. Also check for any blockages / kinks in the fuel line etc. Vent opened on tank if applicable

Would the engine rev up when out of gear ?

Also check your ignition switch,check spark, fuel pump, voltage regulator,pick up coil in dist,

Let me know for further clarification.

Won't fire up

First check for spark at the plugs, if ok check fuel pressure and flow, if flow is low change fuel filter , if pressure is low , check the pressure regulator at the fuel rail, if ok check voltage at the fuel pump if ok replace the pump. If you post again , please give more info as I don't know make or model and can only give general information

1984 Chrysler new Yorker 2.6l wont start. Replaced the fuel filter, new spark plugs and wires, new fuel shut off switch, new relay delay fuse, and a new ignition coil, oh yeah and a new starter. Ever hear...

Here's a quote from amy Chilton's manual for 1980-1987.

"Several types of fuel filters are used. One is located in the fuel tank of all the vehicles and is part of the fuel guage assembly. Second is a sealed paper element, in-line unit; mechanical system- located on the engine (above the fuel pump) or electrical system- located in front of the fuel tank. Third is a paper element, in-line fuel filter/vapor separator, housed in a fuel resevoir. Normally, the in-tank filter does not require changing. If it does, the fuel tank must be removed. "
This thing you describe sounds like the typical Chrysler in-line filter of its day. It is nothing more than the same generic in-line plastic see-thru filter you buy for your lawn mower except in the 70's and 80's it was covered in metal and had a Chrysler part number. A lot of guys added an extra filter in those days, it wasn't the best system. I would remove the outlet line and turn the fuel pump on, see if you get fuel. Replace if needed.

1995 ford contour cranks but won't start, change fuel filter, fuel pump, and spark plugs. Not getting any spark.

Have you ever heard of testing before replacing parts ? Fuel pressure an flow tesing , testing the electrical circuit for the fuel pump , amp draw testing , voltage drop testing etc... Thier are no magical fixes in auto repair . No spark ! check B+ voltage an ground circuits for the ignition system , Ignition System Designs Operation and Testing an SD Premium video

Only starts half the time

If it cranks and you got fuel pump and filter changed, then have a look at the ignition components also, like spark plugs, coils, spark plug wires. also make sure the wiring for the fuel pump is not loose or anything. Hope it helps and let me know if you need more advice. Please don't forget to rate the answer it helps with my rating, thanks!

95 geo metro 3cyl. 1.0L no spark changed

Pull one or two sparkplugs and check them for moisture; not fuel, but for water beads.
I don't know how long your engine ran after losing coolant but there is a chance that you lost the head gasket and have gotten water into the cylinders.
