SOURCE: fuel pump runs but vehicle wont start

Based on what you described, the engine need the fuel to run and obviously it didn't have it. The pump can turn, but it can not deliver a correct rate to built up the required pressure for injector to shoot out. or if it can the injector module didn't open the injectors to have fuel shooting out. Here are things related to no fuel problem, and need to be checked in the following order: - Injector Module. Read my other posts on this subject. - Injectors - Fuel accumulator. - Fuel filter. - Fuel pump Good luck.

SOURCE: truck won't start, can't hear either fuel pump 1992 Ford F 150 5.

If you can't hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position trying to build up fuel pressure, it is most likely either a voltage issue at the fuel pump or you need to replace the fuel pump. Have you checked your fuel filter? Try turning on the key without engaging the starter and see if you hear the whine of the fuel pump.

Good Luck

SOURCE: I have a 1986 Ford LTD Crown Victoria Station

you may also check your fuel pressure module...it is located behind your throttle body, near the firewall. I was able to isolate a vacume leak in that same area with the same symtoms before starting the car, although mine runs an idle ok, it hesitates and will not run smoothly down the road...in my case, it still may also be a failing fuel pump...the best analogy to describe is like sucking on a pop straw that is cracked, you can see the pop comming up the straw, but it's not enough to quench the thirst

SOURCE: 1989 mustang gt 5.0 fuel

The fuel pump relay is what is causing the fuel pump to remain on, it has a green socket and is under the hood next to the fuel injection system computer relay which has a brown socket, replace the relay with the green socket . Could you please read your problem post, you say and i quote "engine will not start if time with gas into throttle body engine will run lots of black smoke" this is confusing and not sure what you mean. I would venture a guess and say you have a problem with the Ignition Module and the distributor stator which can cause this type of symptom, the distributor module (at Ford we call it the "TFI" module) is held on the side of the distributor body by 2 tiny Torx head screws, the distributor stator requires that the distributor be removed and then the distributor drive gear pressed off and the distributor shaft removed before the stator can be removed, it is also held inside the distributor by a couple of torx head screws the same same size as the ignition module screws. The reason I suggest the TFI and stator be replaced is that if the parts are failing they cause the engine to fire at the wrong time so this can cause a rought run and many other weird symptoms, I am a retired Ford dealer master tech and have seen this dozens of times on the GT 5.0 Liter V8.

I have a 1989 Ford f150 drive for about 30 minutes it dies out or stop and want crank for about an hour


I would unplug the gas cap when it stalls; if you hear a hissing sound, change the gas cap, because it builds up a vacuum in the tank.

2006 chevy colorado out of the blue will not start. just makes clicking sound. Started it drove out of garage shut it off. Went back out 5 minutes later won't start. Clock even reset.


Sounds like a bad battery. A number of chain auto parts stores will check it and your charging system free. Before that, if your battery has removable caps, check the water level, if it's down, fill to the bottom of the fill rings and charge the battery, if you have a battery hydrometer, all the cells should have about the same charge level, if one or more show a lot lower than the others, battery is probably bad. Hope this helps.

You may have loaded a fuel line or connector up with contaminants. What else is happening during the second or 3rd day of running? Is it running low on fuel? Try to make a list of your gauge set! It only makes sense.

It sounds like you have an issue with your PassLock security system. I had the same with my 2002 Impala. Key turns OK, but won't start, won't crank. Wait 20-30 minutes, and car starts normally. There is usually a clue from the Battery and Security lights.
The problem starting to happen once a month, and eventually 1-2 times a week.
There are several write-ups on this problem for several GM cars for 2000-2006(?). Search this website, and search the web.
The official solution is to replace the ignition switch. The best solution is to bypass the Pass Lock system. I went ahead and did a full bypass, which involves cutting wires and adding resistors to the ignition circuit. I have not had a problem since.
