There's a fuel pump relay that turns on the fuel pump, as you turn on the ignition before the engine starts, to prime and pressurize the injectors. I'd check the relay it may not be operating.

How do you prime the fuel pump on a 2006 isuzu ascender


If your car is petrol it should self prime when you switch the car on.
If your car is diesel there should be a manual primer to pump pressure into the injectors and remove any air in the fuel lines. you will need to pump this until you feel the pump get hard to push which means there is fuel there. you may need to do this a few times to remove all the air from the lines. Hope this helps.

Have a 98 gmc 5.7 truck have to prime to start truck.


Sounds to me like either your pressure regulator is bad or you have a loose fitting somewhere in the fuel line from the fuel pump to the engine. When you turn your key to the on position, you should hear the whine of the fuel pump until it builds pressure. When you shut the truck off the pressure regulator should retain the pressure for a certain amount of time but if it don't close then air is allowed into the fuel line and the fuel drains down to fuel line away from the engine. Next time you try and start the truck after it has sat for a while try turning the key on until you hear the fuel pump whine shut off, then repeat it 3-5 times and then try to start it. Basically that is running the pump enough to get the fuel back up to the injectors. Check for loose fittings in the fuel line, or cracks in the fuel line and if all that is fine then replace the regulator.

Hope that helps

I have a 1988 dodge ram it wont start it will start on primer then shuts off i replaced the fuel pump and filter but still wont start could it be air locked can you help me please thank-you william


Sounds like it's fuel starved. It will be TBI, there's another fuel filter bolted to the chassis, about mid way, drivers side (looks like a small metal can, with to hose fittings). Any fuel leaks anywhere, rusted out fuel or fuel return lines? Air starved? Replace your air filter. A bad coil will cause this too.

Fuel leak, car will not stay started


Please fix the fuel leak before anything else!! The fuel pressure is definitely being lowered by the leak and the leak itself is a serious fire hazard. If the fuel pressure is too low, the engine will starve and shut off.

Fuel problem


fuel pump sound like a good place to start it may not be getting enough pressure to the fuel thus not sending enough of it at a time to explain why it runs good sometime i think it is primeing and filling the lines once it shuts off and so for a litle while it has enough gas but one you use the gas that was ready in the line it can't get enough to run correctly. have it tested.
