You can disconnect the fuel line preferably on the top of the engine but the easyest place you can find Put the line into a plastic bottle turn the key to run to energize the pump and see what the out put is It should fill the bottle at least a thrid of the way up in about 5 secnods in general There is also pressure conciderations because the system dosen;t have any back pressure acting against it when the line is open But in general if it puts out a good amount of gas its probably good if not its deffinitly bad

Buick regal keeps stalling and losses power going up hill.


loss of power can be a number of things, exhaust leak around manifold. air leak on vacuum lines, fuel pressure low or pump not working 100% blocked fuel filter, weak ignition spark, timing out. can also be the fuel using. air filter blocked. all these can limit power, but if its mostly on inclines it would be more on the fuel side.

Loss of power on hills


It Sounds like a possible ignition miss if the vehicle loses power when ever you ask for added power. If only on hills and when the fuelo tank is low that might be a problem in tthe fuel tank at the fuel pump.

  • too high fuel pressure. 30 ok 60 bad. PSI

  • injector drive wire shorted to ground bad wiring.
  • ECT stuck at -40F (alaska temperature) USE a SCAN tool.
  • MAP sensor vacuum hose/pipe clogged (ECU thinks your are going up hill all the time and floods.
  • The scan tool can check each , but not fuel pressure.

that is a start,

Power fadded over a few days now its dead. Fuel Pump?


It's quite possible to ruin a fuel pump by letting it run dry, especially if it already has years of use. When you first turn on the key, leave the door open and see if you can hear a high pitched whine for about three seconds. That would be the pump priming the system. If you don't hear it, then the pump isn't working. Be sure to turn the key of for about 10 seconds before you try listenng again(it has to reset). It can be hard to hear, especially over the key buzzer.

I have a 99 accord that lacks power when I hit a hill. It runs fine and gets good mileage but I have to downshift from 5th to 4th on minor hills. Check engine light is off.


howdy, there are a few things on your 99 Accord that could cause that problem. usually all will eventually turn on the check engine light in time. make sure your check engine light is working when the key is first turned to run.

* a partially clogged catalytic converter.
* faulty O2 Sensor (Bank 1 Sensor1).
* low fuel pressure caused by a bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter(in the tank) or a bad fuel pressure regulator on the injector rail.
*bad ignition switch which can cause intermittent stalls.

now i don't know which engine you have, (i'm guessing a 4cyl.) there were two 2.3L- 4cyl. engines (F23A1 & F23A4) and a 3.0 V6. but if you also have a rough idle or low idle miss, a jumped timing belt can also causing loss of power.

if you know anyone with a scanner that reads the computer datastream, see what the O2 Sensor (Bank 1 Sensor1) is doing & look at fuel trim readings. Also check backpressure on the converter where that O2 Sensor is screwed in.

please let me know if i have helped, totally confused or scared you to death! Good Luck!

Loss of power when driving up hill


It depends: how steep are the hills? Assuming you have the standard 4-speed or 5-speed gearbox, it's likely that the tiny engine (built for economy, not for power) is simply not generating enough torque to pull the car up in high gear. Have you tried simply downshifting? If the problem truly is the engine losing power and not just lugging due to being in too high a gear on a steep grade, you should check your fuel pressure and you may also want to check the condition of the fuel pump and feeder lines inside the gas tank. A 20 year old car will probably have some disintegration of the feeder lines, they may even be partly broken off inside the tank resulting in poor fuel flow, or disintegrated rubber may be gumming up the strainer or the pump itself. Personally, I'd replace the fuel lines, fuel filter and if low pressure still exists, the fuel pump as well.

Hyundai Sonata jerks/loss of power


Has your car ever had a tune up those little 4 cylinder cars will do that even if 1 cylinder isn't firing properly, so in conclusion what you can do is make sure all your spark plug wires are pushed on all the way since the motor mount is broke they might be coming loose but what i would do is change the spark plugs and wires and fuel filter.. just give it a little tune up if your at all handy you can do it yourself and the parts are cheap you might have 60 bucks into it... if you need anymore help or need me to help you with doing the work just let me know and ill answer all of your questions... Please give me a rating if this helped you
thanks Steve
