    My 2000 Grand Prix GT starts and only runs for 2-4 seconds then dies. I can restart right after but it dies again in 2-4 seconds. I put in injector cleaner but I don't know if it runs long enough to do its thing. I also disconnected the MAF sensor but it didn't help. Thanks

Check your fuel pump (look for a fuel line going to the carb or fuel rail and unhook it and have a friend try to start it see what comes out), if you get fuel out you may want to look at your carb if you have one it may be clogged. Check fuel filter if you find it just as well change it unless you did not to long ago. check spark plugs make sure they are firing (make sure gas is dried up from checking lines earlier). If nothing helps here give some more details (examples, runs rough and then dies, runs fine just dies).

2001 Mercury Sable Intermittent Fuel Pump?


You are right that it could be either component, or something else electrical. The security system will kill the fuel system if the wrong key is used or the system is acting up.
A mechanic would check base fuel pressure with a gauge and also see if the pump is getting power from the relay when it fails to start.

Car won't turn over


few things to look at . does the fuel pump come on when you turn the key to the start position? was the check engine light? do you know if you have spark? if you spray starter fluid in the throttle body will it start?

When engine warms up and you are driving and you let up on gas pedal to come to a stop it quits. Try to start it won,t start squirt little gas in carb it will start but if you let up on gas pedal it quits...


Change the fuel filter.
You may have to also change the fuel pump (sounds like it is getting weak) , but the filter is the cheaper/first step in the process.
